    Re: 4 months???

    A lot of doctors recommend this, even though it totally contradicts all research about babys' bodies and food allergies. There is absolutely no benefit to introducing solids that early. All current...

    Re: Starting new foods - a question

    I've never heard that before. You shouldn't start more than one food at a time, and you should give the same new food for 3-7 days in a row (depending on who you ask) to check for a reaction....

    Poop question

    My DD is 15 months old. She nurses 6-8 times a day. Her poops were very regular and pretty solid (I could knock them off her cloth diaper into the toilet).

    Sept. 20 she had what I assumed to be a...

    Re: YoBaby

    My daughter actually didn't like it. She's not too into sweet things. She loved plain, organic, whole milk yogurt. Unfortunately, she's developed an intolerance to dairy, but that's another story....

    Poll: Re: Poll: When did they give it a name?

    My DD is nearly 15 months and recently started saying, "no, no" when she wants to nurse. It doesn't really sound like the word "no", but I don't know how else to write it. I don't know where it came...

    Re: Worried About Starting Solids

    It sounds like she's doing fine. It's totally normal for a 7 m.o. to have little to no interest in solids. My daughter got interested in them around 10 months. I've heard of babies not getting into...

    Re: Daughter doesn't like cow's milk

    Like the PP said, yogurt, cheese, cottage cheese, etc. are also good ways to get calcium and fat. Fortified soy, rice, and almond milks are good sources of calcium, too. You may want to seek vegan...

    Re: Solids at 3 1/2 mnths whats too much?

    I think that's pretty unusual for such a young baby to want to eat. It's really not recommended that solids are introduced until 4 months, and it's much healthier to wait until 6 months. Maybe you...

    Re: newborn defined

    I thought a newborn was birth to 3 months, and 3 months to a year was an infant. I guess it doesn't matter.

    My daughter is 9 months and she still nurses every 2-3 hours, 24 hours a day. That's...

    Are you nursing from both breasts w/ each feeding? If you are, you may want to try just giving her one breast per feeding. You can even try just offering one breast for 2-3 hours if she wants to...
  23. Re: DD hates her Vitamin drops but needs the Iron-what are some natural sources?

    I know some doctors recommend vitamin drops for all babies; others don't. So, it's debatable whether or not it's necessary. Like the PP said, you could have her tested if you're worried. That way if...
