  1. Re: Is this normal after a core needle biopsy?

    Re: Starting solids with premature baby

    Thanks for the encouragement and all the helpful links :)! As I anticipated, I got the "you really should start giving him solids" speech, but I think I'm going to wait until he could sit without...

  11. Re: Alternatives to Block Feeding? Long story, but please help!

    Thanks for the advice, andrea_ohio. I drink about 1-2 cups of cow's milk per day. I tried eliminating it from my diet and it didn't do anything for the colic. I had a visit from an IBCLC and she...
