    Re: Sadness long after weaning

    It's adorable. She's so devoted to her baby sister. They both just light up at the sight of each other. I hope it stays that way as they get older.

    Re: Sadness long after weaning

    It's been a few days, but I've been too busy to come on here...

    Something like this happened to us last week. Naomi (now 7 months) was nursing and Abby suddenly started crying and pointed and said...

    Re: Does spit up mean baby is full?

    The spit up could definitely be from the sinus drainage. He could also be gulping more air while nursing due to the congestion, which could cause spitting up when he tries to burp that air back up...

    Re: Hand Sucking

    It's certainly possible. I think Naomi was about that age when she started hand sucking for enjoyment.

    Re: 2yr. old won't eat

    Most toddlers seem to go through this... my mom still tells me about how my sister would go for days on almost nothing and then wake up one day and eat enough for five babies.

    When Abby is doing...
  6. Re: 3 months~No schedule~Healthy?~HELP!

    The only schedule a baby should be on at that age is their own schedule. I have a two year old who is "scheduled" in the sense that we have a mutually developed routine, but that didn't come along...

    Re: need some help.....

    It's pretty common for the sensation of having a letdown to disappear or diminish over time. With my first DD it had almost completely disappeared by six months.

    It is possible that something has...

    Re: Antibiotics Question

    It's pretty common to experience irregular poop while on antibiotics. One of the major components of a healthy intestinal tract is bacteria, and antibiotics do not, unfortunately, distinguish between...

    Re: two problems ...

    No suggestions on the dairy free (my first had awful reflux, but we nursed through it and it cleared up by 12 weeks with no dietary changes on my part).

    For LOs with colds, sitting in a steamy...

    Re: OALD is making nursing really hard

    Some days they just fuss. And sometimes they don't like things about us that have nothing to do with milk- like a certain scent we might wear on some days or not others. If you think she is fussing...

    Re: OALD is making nursing really hard

    I had major oversupply and OALD with my first. I block fed and nursed almost exclusively in the side-lying position, which allowed the extra milk to dribble out of her mouth. I found that the problem...

    Re: Meals?

    I just let the meals schedule themselves. I always offered Abby some of whatever I was eating whenever I ate, and that seemed to work fine. So most days she eats breakfast at about 6 am, has a snack...

    My DD was an awful twiddler, and I started making sure I always wore a shirt to bed. Regular t-shirts weren't enough- I used nursing camis or nursing shirts that were multiple layers so she couldn't...

    Re: weight check and worried

    His weights and heights look very similar to Abigail's. She's super active, and even though she eats more than I do, she looks stick skinny when she's running nakey before bath time. She's 16 months...

    Re: Yogurt?

    We started plain organic yogurt around 7 or 8 months. The cultures in yogurt make it easily digestible, unlike regular cows milk. It's also yummy blended with fresh or frozen fruit.

    If you have no family history of allergies, I really wouldn't worry about it. I never thought to look if things like tomatoes would be problematic... two of Abigail's favorite first foods were mashed...
  21. Re: Breastfeeding mom losing too much weight

    I wouldn't worry about your son having too much milk, but you may want to add some more calories into your diet. Try to keep some kind of healthy snack with you (in your purse/diaper bag) all the...
  22. Re: What did I do and how to fix it: refusal of "baby" food

    At 8 months, that's fine. We "started" solids at six months, but she didn't really give a rip one way or the other about eating them until about 11 months. Remember that the point of solids before 1...

    Re: Pasta and Chicken

    Was there any flavor on the pasta? If not, try drizzling a little olive oil or butter over it- plain pasta is a little bland. Abigail likes hers with olive oil and a little parmesan cheese. She'll...
  25. Re: How much do your toddlers drink, including nursing

    Abigail is 14 months now, and her drinking habits are random at best. Yesterday, for example, she only drank about 3 ozs. of milk and 2 ozs. of water during the day. But when DH came home, she drank...
