    Re: constipated...please help

    My daugher has this problem too. And her BM's are really huge and they are obviously stretching her anus causing pain. She gets red in the face and screams bloody murder. But the stool comes out soft...
  3. Re: DS is 4.5 months old. should i start rice cereal???

    My daughter and I started after 6 months. I'm glad we waited. I wanted her to feed herself. She self feeds and the only food she ever really didn't like to self feed was banana. She gagged on the...

    Re: Will she need to eat prunes forever?

    She loves to self feed green beans, peas and sweet potatoe chunks (my own homemade veg medly). I think the portions last week were too large and contributed to the problem. Not enough fiber in her...

    Re: Will she need to eat prunes forever?

    Yeah, she had a huge BM today, poor thing screamed and cried the entire time. It was very formed, adult like. I guess we will just continue with the prunes. I do put them on her waffles, but she...

    Will she need to eat prunes forever?

    Poor DD. If I don't give her prunes she has a really hard time passing her BM's. They are GIANT too. She loves her veggies so much and eats plenty of pears. Last week I ran out of prunes and figured...

    Re: Why should I feed cereal?

    Oatmeal is a great cereal for my 10 month DD. She loves it with a bit of fruits mixed in. I make enough for both of us. I skipped rice cereal. Gross.

    Re: How to balance

    My tip to add to the thread: Get your groceries delivered. I just did this. Ordered online, got them delivered the next evening. Only 10 extra dollars, no tipping allowed. This is my new favorite...

    Re: working and Night waking

    I can't believe my body adjusts to the increase in nighttime nursing that I 've experienced these past four months. I don't nap either. Just work, nurse, sleep when I can (LOL). My 10 month old...

    Re: home-made oatmeal?

    I just did it this way for the first time this morning:

    Used regular quaker oats, not instant

    used my fingers to crush it and make it a bit finer texture when it was dry

    put in a little...
  11. Re: dark circles & eye bags under baby's eyes... HELP!

    I think dark circles are genetic. I read that somewhere. It doesn't necessarily mean poor sleep. My DD has them as do me and DH.

    Re: solids and day care?

    I started sending solids to my daughter's daycare around 7-8 months. I think they thought I was starving her, LOL. We introduced finger foods at home before we sent them to daycare to make sure she...

    Re: He's Done

    Is it just the "big fish" that are a concern? Like shark, etc. . . Meaning the fish that feed on the smaller bottom feeders are the ones that are problematic? Thanks!

    Re: Pumping yield - how much?

    Hi Jen! Just wanted to add my two cents!

    Sounds like the pumping is going fine. My DD is 9 months and I pump at work (three times a day). Don't stress too much about how much you drink. Just...
  16. Re: EBF this week while off work - now engorged

    Wow, this is such a similar situation to me. I teach so I"ve been off on vacation. During a regular work week I try to empty the boobs every three hours. Double pump. But at home now, even at night,...

    Re: What can i try for a 4 mo old teething?

    My daugher got two teeth at this age. She was pretty happy with those but the next four (yep, FOUR) made her quite the little night time waker. Problem was, she didn't want to put anything in her...

    Re: Should baby be woken up to feed?

    Thanks, Mary and Fezz. That helped clairfy for me. :)

    Re: Should baby be woken up to feed?

    OK, is the above advice about 10-20 minutes of nursing accurate? I thought we were supposed to watch the baby not the clock? I'd hate any moms that read this post to stress unnecessarily if this...

    Re: Please advise

    Just F.Y.I, the amount of pumped milk is not an indicator of a woman's supply or lack thereof. Many women have plenty of milk for their babies that nurse but can't pump hardly any milk. The last...

    Is your latch painful? Mine wasn't and my DD never really had her lips totally turned out like a fish. For some reason it was OK for me. . .
