    Re: When to start attending LLL meetings?

    I say, start attending as soon as you have interest too! Go this month if you feel like it! They are fun and informative and that way you can already start building your support network!

    Re: Is Overfeeding Possible?

    As long as you are just breastfeeding, I wouldn't worry about overfeeding him! He's a growing boy! How often does he nurse? The beautiful thing about nursing is that your baby will control your...

    Re: Doesn't Like Cereal

    Re: When did your child start solids?

    I would go by what your child is telling you. I tried to start my daughter at six months, but she really didn't want to eat solids. She was showing intrests in our food, but not in actually eating...
