    Re: Frustrating Peditrician visit

    Hmm...that does sound frustrating. Have you considered switching pediatricians? There hardly seems a point in paying someone to give you medical advice when you can't trust the advice they're...

    Egg allergy

    My 13-month-old has recently thrown up on two separate occasions (several days apart) several hours after eating a freshly cooked hard-boiled egg. He's had eggs in smaller quantities before and as...

    Re: Water?

    Oh, that's good to know!

    Yesterday I was able to get him to drink a few sips of water from a cup that I was holding and I'm feeling satisfied now that I know that he *can* drink water from a cup,...

    Water?

    Hi Ladies,

    My son is almost 13 months old now and doesn't really drink any water (or anything other than breastmilk from the breast). I've tried giving him a sippy cup and regular open plastic...

    Feeding solids in the bath!

    My 11-month-old DS likes to eat finger foods and refuses the spoon, but he's so messy that cleaning up afterwards is really a chore. So this evening I let him eat blueberries in the bathtub! I put...

    Re: Conflicted about BLS

    Update: Tried purees for a bit and he would only take a little (1 or 2 lightly filled baby spoons) before losing interest. Took a short break from solids then went back to BLW and now he truly eats!...
  7. Re: 16 month old, lots of comfort nursing?

    I think you can put limits on nursing while still meeting your son's needs. I look at it this way: mammals in the wild sometimes find that they need to interrupt a nursing session to grab food or...

    Re: Conflicted about BLS

    So...all these websites I've been looking at are saying infants should get 11mg of iron per day during the second half of their first year (more than adult men need, supposedly). At first I was...

    Conflicted about BLS

    DS is 8 months old and started baby-led solids about a month ago. I only offered him solids about twice a week because it didn't seem to be going well. He gagged on any pieces that ended up in his...

    Ready or not?

    My DS is 7.5 months old and likes to put everything he sees in his mouth. When I offer solids (avocado and banana slices), he plays with them just like he would with any other toy, but when a piece...
  11. Re: over a month of on-and-off nursing strike(s)

    Has an IBCLC checked for a lip or tongue tie? We had lots of breast resistance until we got ours treated. My LO's posterior tongue tie was not visually obvious to me but responded to treatment with...

    Re: Upper Lip Tie/ Labial Frenulum

    I wanted to write a quick update to this. Nursing is still going great! I'm very glad we went to see Dr. Kotlow because our days have completely changed over these past few weeks. Just don't give...

    I really take issue with the part that said, "And if we're going to remove formula samples for women to promote breast-feeding, we better come up with a plan to feed the babies of that 5% of women...

    Things have gotten much better since I wrote this! I think the first few days post-op he was still adjusting and I was impatient, but I'm feeling much more confident now. :) Fussing while nursing...

    Re: Upper Lip Tie/ Labial Frenulum

    Hi,

    I would recommend emailing your photo to Dr. Kotlow in Albany. He treats a lot of tongue and lip ties and may be able to advise you on whether it looks like that's the issue. I've seen some...

    When is EPing worth it?

    My DS is almost 6 months old. He has an upper lip tie and posterior tongue tie which were clipped a couple times over the last month or so and only successfully lasered a few days ago. He can...
  18. Re: Help! LO keeps refusing the right breast!

    Same here. I switch him to the right side when he falls asleep nursing on the left side and he usually stirs enough to start nursing but not enough to realize he's on the right side. :) If it gets...

    You're not doing anything wrong, mama. On the contrary, your baby misses you because you're doing such a good job of taking care of her! Other caregivers shouldn't expect to hold as big a place in...

    Re: Clicking Sounds

    In my case, reassurance from everyone else was counterproductive and just kept me from getting help, so I'd urge her to go to an LC if something doesn't seem right. I wasn't in pain, but it turns...
