    Re: Biting!

    Thanks for getting back. I pretty much change him everytime he wakes up. I have been noticing a decrease in the amount of wetness in the actual diapers, but I kind of chocked that up to it being...
  13. Solids, attention span related to decreased bf?

    I honestly thought that I would not have to worry again that my LO is getting enough nutrition one he started solids, but now it seems it is all about the right mix, where BM is still most important!...
