    I remember having diapers, wipes and a flashlight so I didn't have to get up unless I needed...

    Re: My baby is 3 weeks today!!!

    I think you are completely right in saying that needing to be able to relax is important.

    It is wonderful that you can listen to your baby's cues and needs.

    Re: How much breastfeeding with solids?

    From what I know, breastmilk is supposed to be the main source of nutrition for the first year.
    Solids are introduced and slowly increase during the second half year of life.

    Re: My baby is 3 weeks today!!!

    Hello Amy.
    Congratulation on the birth of your baby.
    I was a bit confused when I read your story.

    I have been sitting here trying to remember when my children had their fussy times.

    Re: Fussy baby

    babycrazy-
    When baby is fussy I always offer to nurse first.
    If that is not what is wanted, I check the diaper and then the clothing....too hot, too cold, a scratchy tag , a thread wrapped.

    Re: Change in Latch - only on right breast?

    I was going to ask if you are right handed or left.
    Many women have a bit of a tougher time getting baby latched on to their dominant side.

    Re: how much food for daycare?

    You could have an extra frozen 4 oz EBM at the daycare for an emergency stash if you wanted. That would cover a day when maybe your baby wanted more.

    Re: too much solids, not enough nursing
