    Re: Frequent poops at 4 months

    Sounds to me that your baby is doing fine. The frequent bowel mov'ts are not problematic and if you are seeing little strains of red in the feces it does not warrant a trip to the emergency room .

    Re: Preemie nursing/weight gain

    I am relieved to learn your pumping output is 3 to 4 ounces per session. If your infant is fed 10 or more times a day and is transferring that amount her weight ought to pick up soon. The more...

    Re: Preemie nursing/weight gain

    Your milk supply might be less than stellar if your infant is not sucking deep and rhythmically enough to create a bountiful supply. I do believe from my own experience that it is more common to have...

    Vent away! I remember when my children were little and how I had to steal time for myself to eat, drink, shower and use the toilet. I had developed some less than stellar eating habits just to cram...
  17. Re: 6 month old and bed time nursing games

    I saw that tissue/sleeping video too! How cool was that! One of the lessons I learned the hard way was "mommy must not be hit, bit, pulled pinched ever by anyone" including the nursing baby. More...
