    Refusing one side

    Any ideas why a three day old infant would refuse one breast only? He is actively nursing from the right side, but screams when they left side is offered?

    Re: What's up with oatmeal?

    Does instant oatmeal work as well as the "real stuff"? Instant quaker oats (maple and brown sugar...yummm) is just so much easier first thing in the AM!
