    Re: 10 month old and solids

    Our grocery store has a frozen peas and carrots mix - the carrots are diced, so they're easy for baby to pick up. I just nuke 'em until they're soft. It's cheaper than the gerber alternative, and...

    Re: At a loss

    Red blood in poop is usually a surface issue - check his bottom to see if he's gotten a scratch or cut with the offensive foods. It may just be as a result of 'solid' poop.

    Re: Food groupings?

    Actually, she eats the jarred sweet potatoes with no issues. Cereals were met with the gagging what-are-you-trying-to-do-to-me shudder (she spits them out at any consistency), mashed banana had the...

    Re: airborne cold remedy

    Psuedophedrine - not the new sudafed PE. I think you have to leave your blood type and all known relative information at the pharmacy counter to purchase it anymore. ;)

    Eat & Run

    Any suggestions out there for the distracted 8 month old baby who likes to look around while still firmly latched? I can't spend her meal times in a dark room - I've got a toddler to take care of...

    Re: Help... LO uses me as a pacifier

    Ain't that the truth. My 8 mo old is a total angel for everyone so long as I'm out of her line of vision. The minute she sees or hears me, she wants to eat and is vocal about it. I feel like I...

    Re: Food groupings?

    Specifically I was trying to figure out if I could get my 8 month old to eat something other than sweet potatoes, since that's all we've been able to introduce without a serious gag reaction in the...

    Food groupings?

    Hey all, I was wondering if anyone knows of a resource out there that groups first foods together. I know you're supposed to start one at a time, however it seems at little odd at times since I have...

    I believe the earliest age for the chicken pox vaccine is after year 1 - see http://www.askdrsears.com/html/8/T080900.asp for some evidence-based information. Not everything on the Internet is based...

    Re: Need suggestions

    One breast is just fine - just make sure she's latched on long enough to get the hind milk.

    Are you planning on going back to work or are you hoping for some sleep relief with the bottle thing? ...

    Re: I am really confused & need help- long

    Also, if you're feeling a bit down about the weight loss, know that most all babies do lose some of their birth weight by their 2 week checkup - even those on formula. (Though it's usually only a...

    Re: Lack of Interest

    I am having exactly the same issue with my 2nd daughter - she turns 8 months Jan. 3, and has pretty much no interest in actually eating. Today I had a small victory by getting her to eat sweet...

    Re: Nipples of fire! (and some questions)

    You can soak your breasts in saline (1/4 teaspoon salt to one cup warm water) for 2 minutes between feedings and use something like ameda gels pads for nipple comfort. I've also tried Soothies and...

    Re: Waking up at night
