    Hi! I have had terribly sore nipples for going on a week now. At first I thought my daughter (who turned 7 months this week) wasn't opening her mouth enough, but we've worked on that and my...

  8. Nipple "irritation" feeling while BFing now (3 mo)

  9. Getting pressure to start 3mo on rice cereal soon

    EVERYONE has been saying, "Oh, its almost time to start rice cereal soon" to me lately. I don't know if I'll get any "advice" or pressure from her ped. at her 4 month appt, but I was really wanting...
  10. 2.5 mo wants to change nursing position...

    My daughter won't lay "right" while nursing anymore. She wiggles until she's flat on her back with her head turned to the side to nurse. (We use the Cradle hold).

    Anyway, I've read/heard that...

  15. Re: Sore nipple question-- should I not BF On that side until I heal?

    THanks, Hope. I'll try that. But not the nipple shield -- I JUST weaned her off of that (we used them from the hosp til 6 wks):)
  16. Re: Sore nipple question-- should I not BF On that side until I heal?

    Thanks -- i fed on the "ok side" while waiting :-)

    She's 7 weeks; i'll double-check position, etc.

    For some reason we really have a hard time getting her to open wide.
  17. Sore nipple question-- should I not BF On that side until I heal?

    Advice would be great -- asap, even b/c baby...

    My daughter has been on an every 2 hour eating schedule since birth. Over the past few days, she has been sleeping at night 5 and 6 hours. Is this OK? Or should I be waking her to eat?

    I still...
