    Re: growth spurt?

    Our babies are 1 day apart! Mine was a bit more fussy this weekend too. I thought it was her teeth, but then today I started to get a sore throat and one of the few things that has helped it is...
  2. Re: coughing and spitting up related to teething?

    Dr. Sears says in his book that babies can get a "drool cough" which can accompany teething. Maybe that is what you are noticing? It maybe is just the extra saliva dripping back into the throat and...

    Re: What finger foods to send to DCP?

    We chose organic brown rice cereal from Whole Foods. It is similar to rice crispies, but more of a puffed texture. She is really good at getting them now, so we have moved on to an organic brand of...

    Re: When do they stop eating so often?

    Every 1-2 hours sounds normal to me for that age. I remember things getting a little more spaced out at around 6 weeks, and then definitely around 3 months was more like every 2 hours. There is a...

    Re: Frustrated! Pump volume depleting!

    You said in your post that you are pumping for 20 min. Is there any way you could pump longer? I noticed that I can collect more milk just by pumping longer. This is especially true for me when I can...

    Re: homeade apple sauce

    It might have to do with which apples you choose. Granny Smith apples are really tart, while red and yellow delicious are much sweeter- even raw. So, those varieties would probably be even sweeter...

    Re: BPA free bottles with Medela

    I use a PIS to pump, then use Platex drop-ins to feed dd while I am away. The plastic that is soft ( as used in the liners) does not have BPA, like other hard plastic bottles do.

    Re: arching, biting, crying, I got it all!

    My LO started doing this around the same time as yours. She is now 9 mo. and still does it. It is really annoying. She doesn't have reflux or anything, so my guess would be that the two are...

    Re: 9 Months Old, What to eat?

    Thanks for posting this, I needed some suggestions too. I noticed many of the pp's recommending different finger foods. I don't mean to hijack the thread, but what do you give them if they don't have...

    Re: gagging

    My LO is the exact same way. Any thicker stage 2 foods like peas she thinks she is going to choke on. I don't know why she does it, but you are not alone. I have tried giving her fresh banana sliced...

    Re: Do 8-9 month old babies need more milk?

    My DD is 8.5 mo. right now and is doing the same thing. I had some oversupply issues in the beginning, so we were doing the one side only thing. Now I usually offer both. I pump as well and haven't...

    Re: Really bad diaper rash?

    A couple of things that helped my LO when she had a bad rash from some antibiotics, were-- 1. Lotramin cream ( like the pp mentioned) and 2. baking soda in the bath water. I guess it changes the pH...

    Boiling parts- how often

    I use the PIS 2x a day at work. Each night I was the parts in hot soapy water then sterilize them in the Avent microwave sterilzer along with the bottle nipples. Should I be boiling my parts...

    Re: wont open mouth wide!

    I think LO's need to kind of learn to open wide, then don't all instinctively know. So, once I realized that I had to "teach" them- I got right on it. The easiest thing for me was to pop my boobie in...

    Re: why I love breastfeeding

    7. The immunities that it provides cannot be beat. Since I have to work and have DD in DC, I depend a lot on the immunities that I can provide her so that she is not sick as often as other babies....

    Re: What am I doing wrong??

    I would agree that the larger flanges to help with output. Also, I now pump longer than I used to. With DD#1 I would only pump about 10-15 min. I could always feel that there was more milk in there,...

    Re: Probiotics???

    We too have used them with our LO, especially when she had to take antibiotics for an ear infection. It helped with the diarrhea and the rash that accompanied it.

    Re: Is Fish ok for my 8 mo old????

    I think fish would be a great idea. Of course wild or line caught fish would be prefered by some, there also is the greater risk of it being tainted with mercury or other chemicals. We buy farm...

    We are now just barely past month 7 and are just getting started on solids.
    Organic fruit purees. So, there are others out there that have waited-- don't be in a rush. Trust your instincts.

    Re: Can only pump 3 oz!!!

    I also agree that larger "flanges" ( the funnel thing) will help. Also, try pumping longer. I was like you, I would stop pumping after maybe 10-15 minutes when there were barely any drips- even...

    Re: What kind of bottles/ nipples to use?

    I'm with the PP's. We have used Playtex nursers, with liners, and the natural latch, slow flow nipple with both girls. No complaints.

    I also have an angled one and have liked using it. It really does put your body in a better position, and take some of the stress off. I bought one with DD #1, and am now using it again. Since you...

    Re: Pumpning?!?!?

    I had to start pumping pretty early on, so that I could develop a freezer stash and because I was going back to work. I probably pumped first when she was about 2 weeks old. I am sure I got some milk...

    Yes. I get more than one letdown. I had never experienced that before ( cuz I never pumped long enough to find out) I could tell that there was more milk in there by squeezing, but whenever it slowed...
