    Re: Expecting baby#2. Already skeptical.

    I gave up with my first child too. It's so different with the second. I am not saying it's going to be cake. It won't be. My advice is to take a class, read a book, and get in touch with a LLL...

    Re: a weekend away - so tempting

    I say go too. Your lo will actually not wean in that time. My friend still nurses her two y/o and goes away every now and then for a few days and her dd goes right back to it when she gets home. ...

    Re: At what age?

    I started at about 10 months due to low iron. I had to try all different ways. She didn't like them boiled and peeled, so I tried scrambled; she didn't like that either. So it turns out she likes...

    That link will help. I just wanted to say that most of us a lower supply on one breast verses the other. It does even out some with some work. I always had one that was a little smaller than the...

    Re: Are solids really necessary?

    IMO, solids are for exploration before a year old. At six months, I started with the baby led approach. My DD was able to smash and mush and eat at her own pace. I am not sure of research on...

    Re: when and how much

    We started at 6 months with the baby led approach to solids. You introduce solid, not pureed, food to baby. This allows them to control the amount and explore with texture. It's the best decision...

    Re: Feeding Water????

    It's fine to introduce water at 6 months in a sippy. We liked the silicone nipple nuby cup. IMO, though, it's the cereal causing the problem. It is really not the healthiest first food. You may...

    Re: A bit frustrated with the BF supply

    Hi, my time online is limited so I didn't read all the other replies so sorry if I repeat. It sounds like it would be safe to quit with the supplementing all together. I am not a doctor of course...

    Re: Nursing every hour

    I totally agree, normal. It could be a growth spurt but for us the first year was a growth spurt, lol. I can laugh now, right? I agree a sling helps. I have an older son. It can be hard. Camp...

  17. Re: When can I indtroduce a bottle when I'm away?

    You can introduce a bottle at 4-6 weeks. Some babies will take them, some won't. My daughter did at first and then decided straight from the tap is what she preferred no matter who was giving her...

    Re: Confused a bit...

    Re: Adiri vs. First Years Breast Flow

    I started a thread on the Adiri a long time ago and 9 out of the 10 replies said it didn't work for them. So I didn't order it. We had the best luck with syringe feeding. I bought a big one from...
  22. Re: can freezing "kill" a possibly offending ingredient?

    No the freezing wouldn't kill it. Try eliminating dairy first. It's the most common culprit. It can take up to two weeks to get completely out of your system. You also will really need to read...
