    when i introduced a sippy cup to the older two girls, i always put water in it. they didn't really drink it, like jomo said, but it was fun for them to play with! and it gave them something else to...
  2. Re: The green poop monster, fussy baby and other problems..

    You're doing a great job, mama. Oversupply can certainly lead to green poops, but another avenue you may need to explore is a dairy sensitivity. My DD3 had green stools from birth and at 10wks, she...
  3. Re: confused, frustrated, and worried

    Does your LO take a pacifier at all? When my DD is done nursing, she often cries when she unlatches, but refuses to re-latch (I think because she no longer wants milk, but it is still coming anyway),...

  5. Re: Need to eliminate dairy products for baby 7wks old

    I'm in the same boat, mama! I just began my dairy elimination last week. My baby is 11wks now, and we had also noticed many of the symptoms that you describe.

    And, I agree with PP, you really do...

    Re: Pumping Chit Chat....

    Me too, Jenna. Only, it's more about feeling even and balanced rather than the lopsided feeling I have all week long since Elise only nurses from one side at a time.

    Re: Need advice on bottles!

    I would DEFINATELY switch to a slow flow nipple. He might be enjoying the way the milk comes out so much quicker and without as much work when he gets the bottles with the medium flow nipple!

    I can't believe Norah's gonna be 3... That seems crazy! And you are certainly missed around here. Although I don't post much, I definately miss reading things from your perspective! :D

    Re: Pacifiers

    First, I gotta say- Bekah sounds JUST like Jaden. She was a t.o.t.a.l. comfort nurser. She wanted to suck and suck and suck but would be irate when milk came out! And she was super high-needs. ...
  21. Re: what pacifier is closest to my nipple?

    I will also recommend the Soothie pacifier! My girls NEVER liked the infant ones, so we stuck with the newborn style- even when my oldest was 3 1/2 years old! Here's a link. You can get them...

    Re: Constipation

    I agree- it's likely that baby is not constipated, just changing stooling habits! Both of my daughters, around the age of 6-8 weeks, began stooling only every 5-7 days. Yay for less poopy diapers!
