    Re: How to plan for weaning at 12 mos

    Allergic colitis from what? If it's from dairy products, like it is for my LO, I wouldn't consider cow's milk for a replacement. My LO is still nursing for naps and nighttime, but she drinks soy milk...

  18. Re: 4 1/2 months EBF doesn't sleep through the night

    Hmmmm, have to agree with everyone else....my older two didn't STTN till they were maybe 2? Or 3? My 6 month old does not STTN either, and of course I'm totally not expecting her to, though she does...
