    Re: when can i give my 3 month old cereal.?

    DS is driving me nuts!

    Lately, ds is giving me a really hard time with nursing. He'll act like he wants to eat, even to the point where he's fussy, but he won't stay on! He'll latch for a second, come off and cry. I...

    Re: Hiccups

    when ds first started to laugh, he would get them every time. Now I don't remember the last time he got them. I've read that doesn't hurt them like it does us. And he never seemed uncomfortable.
