    Re: how long between bowel movements?

    My kids were always slow poopers!! :) I'd call your pediatrician and ask how long they recommend before worrying, since yours has been a "regular" pooper. Maybe something you ate is bothering her? ...
  5. Re: Fenugreek and Blessed Thistle - a few questions.

    :D That's what I hear...My brother's wife sort of cycles her fenugreek intake. For instance, when the baby has a growth spurt, she ups it. Otherwise she just takes very little/none. Of course,...

    Re: Wanted to say thank you...

    I agree...I'm new here, but no one has freaked out over the use of formula. Not so that I've noticed anyway. Worst thing you can do is scare someone away, especially a new mom!!
