    Re: Silent reflux?

    Mine would arch her back trying to get comfortable sleeping. I could also tell sometimes when she was fighting it back down...she would kind of shiver and shake her head. She would get the hiccups...
  7. Re: Is it ok to NOT add solids at almost 7 mo?

    Thank you all so much...I just needed some reassurance, as I feel that it will be clear when she is ready, but I'm obviously new to this and don't want to wait too long if it's best for her to start...
  8. Is it ok to NOT add solids at almost 7 mo?

    My pedi, of course, recommended that we start at 6 months, but my girl doesn't seem ready yet. She enjoyed trying rice cereal mixed with bm the first couple of times we tried it, but she's just not...

  11. Re: Please help me conquer the formula!!

    i've been trying to add a photo of brenna to my profile as a "profile" pic, and an avatar, but it doesn't work for me...and the files are plenty small enough. :(

  14. Re: Please help me conquer the formula!!

  18. Re: Please help me conquer the formula!!

    [quote=LLL_Jolie;464914]When she stops, does the milk pool in her mouth or does she let it dribble out?
    She does let milk drip out the side of her mouth that she is lying on sometimes...not sure if...
  19. For anyone who wants to share their success story...

    I'm here to read it! I was scared into supplementing formula when my daughter was 5 days old, and I've been trying to kick it ever since. I pumped up until a few weeks ago...the shields are all too...
  20. Re: Please help me conquer the formula!!

  24. Re: Please help me conquer the formula!!

    Thank you all so much, again...I should have come here weeks ago. My husband is to the point where he thinks we should just give her formula, because "we were raised on it". He just doesn't get...
  25. Re: Please help me conquer the formula!!
