    Hi Tracy. I'm not a doctor, but my guess would be that baby's intestines are just fine, unless you've seen a strong reaction in her. However, with Crohn's in her genetics it might be wiser to wait....

    cat scratch fever!

    My DD has always had sharp little finger nails. No matter how I trim and file and buff, they are just like little razors. Lately, she has taken to using them on my breasts and belly when nursing. ...
  13. Re: Biting, pulling, clamping, you name it!

    I had what sounds like a similar problem with DD was 4 months. Lactation consultant said there was nothing to do, she would "grow out of it." And, she did. She stopped at about 5 months or so. ...
