    Re: Constipation

    Thanks. I have not given him bananas, as I know they constipate him. I also cut out carrots and apples. The oatmeal thing confuses me because that's what I started him on at 6 months, and it never...

    Re: don't want to give up

    Are you feeling any better?? :hug I had the same thing. Nursing was so excruciating, I would cry at every latch-on. The pain was worse than childbirth without drugs! I wanted to quit too! I...

    Re: coughing/choking while BF'ing
