    teething and won't eat

    My 14 week old is teething (at least that is what is seems like to me) and is having trouble eating because of her gum pain. Yesterday she would at least eat for about 5 minutes per feeding. She was...

    Cold medicine while nursing

    I am exclusively nursing my 6 week old and am now coming down with a cold. She has been very wakeful at nights - still - so I'm not getting the sleep I need to fight it off. I want to be alert and...

    Going backwards with nights

    My LO is just over 6 weeks. Pretty sure we went through the 6-week growth spurt last week because she was eating every 1.5-2 hours, when we were going three-hour stints previously. I was hoping...

    Re: asleep all day but not at night....

    I feel your sleep deprivation. My 5 w/o was actually getting it, or so it seemed and all of a sudden the past week she has been up all night. Sometimes until 5 a.m., once til 8 a.m. with only 20...

    Re: Baby falling asleep at the breast?

    A mid-feeding diaper change with the light on does wonders for a sleepy baby. Just be careful not to jossle the baby too much because that inevitably leads to spitting up. Also, rubbing a cool cloth...

    Love the name carpentergirl. Also love the look because it generally means at least an hour and a half of sleep for me. :)

    Re: baby crying for hours during night-help!

    Ditto, my almost 4w/o has started fussing/crying between 7 and 11:30ish every evening. She seems to want to eat but keeps pulling off and won't do a full feeding. At first I thought it was...
  9. Re: Determining when baby is done with a feeding?

    Good question. My baby comes off on her own after about 4 minutes because she needs to burp... then she is ready to eat more. Sometimes she comes off several times if she is trying to have a bowel...

    Re: HELP! 8 week old w/ constipated diarrhea

    My LO is just over 3 weeks old and doing the exact same thing. At first I thought it was constipation, but she is still having 4-5 dirty diapers a day, so I don't think that it is. I do notice that...

    Re: Ongoing tummy ache

    I didn't realize that EVERY baby has a fussy time each day. But definitely reassuring to know. I agree, the gripe water seems pretty useless apart from as a hiccup remedy. Thanks for sharing your...

    Re: Ongoing tummy ache

    You can buy it at any drug store, supermarket or big box store. There are a number of brands available and I don't know if one is better than the other. It is supposed to be good for baby's hiccups...

    Re: Ongoing tummy ache

    Thanks for you input. She always feeds well for about 4 minutes then pulls off, so I burp her. After that she pulls off every few minutes and I burp her frequently, then again at the end. She doesn't...

    Wow, that makes me feel better to hear that somebody else is going through the same thing. My LO generally feeds for 11-15 minutes on one breast. The last few nights she has taken to feeding...
