    Re: BF bb losing weight

    Does he seem happy and content? How is his length and head circumference? If those are fine, I would chalk it up to just a normal slowing of growth. My first son dropped from 50% to 10% at his 6...

    Re: milk coating on tongue...?

    You can have just a "milky" tongue without having thrush. Try to wipe it off with a soft cloth--if it can't be wiped off, then it is thrush. Also, thrush tends to be in patches, and not cover the...

    Re: Food Strike

    At about this age, my lo stopped eating any sort of purees. He only wants to self feed--have you tried offering small pieces of foods that he can feed himself?

    Lactic acid can temporarily change the taste of your milk, and some lo's will not like it. If you feed before exercise, then it shouldn't be an issue--the lactic acid will probably leave your milk...
