    Hey everyone!

  6. Re: 7 1/2 month old latch on has changed, and it's painful!

    My lo is now just over 7 months but he was doing this same thing when he was about 6.5 months.
    He got his two bottom teeth at just over 4 months and they didn't seem to bother him at all. Then when...
  7. Re: 8 month old: Number of milk feeds per day.

    Also I'd add... If your baby doesn't seem to like/want the solids that's totally ok! There's no need for your baby to be eating large amounts of solids at this age! It's good to just offer it, but bf...
  8. Re: 8 month old: Number of milk feeds per day.
