    Re: Physician pressure to wean

    Probably some connection. It sounds like, from what we've learned about eczema, almost EVERYTHING aggrivates eczema.

    We went to a new pediatrician yesterday and she also thinks that it's...

    My DD is 8 1/2 months and still feeds about 3 times a night (from bed to wake). Remember, baby is getting all the nutrition he needs from breastmilk, not solids. Just keep feeding him on demand,...
