    Re: Setting Limits?

    Sometimes I put Nessa off, like right before dinner. But I nurse her pretty much on demand, which has gotten down to long wake up nurse, before and after naps (she still takes 2 every day), at...

    Re: Foods to Counteract Constipation

    Carrots save us a lot of agony around here. As do peas and beans. And lots and lots of water - I offer her sips, not just handing her the sippy cup, etc.

    Applesauce is NOT good for Nessa for...

    Re: she loses weight when we travel

    Awesome ideas! She is below the 5% for weight (down from 40% at her 6 mo, and 20% at her 9 mo) and she is about 50% for height, so definitely not height/weight proportional, nor is she staying on her...

    Re: she loses weight when we travel

    Great idea! She likes those Stonyfield Farms yoghurt drinks, so perhaps shakes would work??

    Thanks, mamas, for your thoughts!

    Re: she loses weight when we travel

    :ita This was my reaction, too! I started to dream nurse her a couple times a night to add feedings, and offered the breast more often. This resulted in a 1/2 pound weight gain in a month! But then...
  6. Re: How to give beans for almost 1 yr old

    Nessa LOVES beans - we started giving them to her when she was about 9 mos, and she has been eating them every which way ever since.

    Popular serving styles:

    hummus with pita (she basically...

    Re: Biting Baby/Random Rants

    I should also mention that pulling the baby towards you whenever s/he bites is a huge help. I then stick my finger in the side of her mouth and ease her off without a repeat bite.

    If I feel...

    Re: Biting Baby/Random Rants

    Ugh, this is so hard - I've been there! Nessa now has 4 teeth, and when they came in she turned into a total biter. And with 4 teeth and jaws of steel it is no joke. :eye

    Re: Only One Tooth

    I'm finding that she likes things with complex flavors, like meat from stews before the salt goes in and a couple of different veggies together. She likes to gnaw on green beans and asparagus...
  13. Re: Is there anything BAD about rice cereal?

    Nessa has actually started to like a little cereal mixed with veggies - it is the only way she likes pureed food. I give her Happy Bellies, which is a whole grain, and it is fortified with DHA and...

    You get the prescription from your doc - your ob probably. You should be able to call it in if you have an established relationship with your ob.

    Good luck, mama! You are working so hard for your...

    If you think that it might be yeast, you might want to stop using lanolin as it can just exacerbate a yeast infection (keeps the skin moist, which is perfect for growing yeast).
