    Congratulations! You are working so hard for your peanut! You may want to try giving a difficult nipple to keep your peanut from biting you. I think a difficult nipple may train DO to not...
  2. Re: 11 Mo: Rapid (almost sudden) weaning... won't take milk, formula

    Sounds silly, but my kiddo turned out to have a problem with cow's milk (something with the cow's milk protein being longer) but not formula (U.S.) or breastmilk. Maybe goat's milk or even buffalo...

    Thank you, everyone! I appreciate the comments because they make me feel much better. I will read up on the hormone deficiency. I ask because my Ped didn't tell me about the rotavirus vaccine...
  4. Support requested for mom of tiny wee one

    I know that I should be worried only about the developmental milestones (which DS is hitting ahead of schedule) and not the scale, but here are his stats:

    Re: Something wrong with my baby:(

    If it cheers you up any, your baby is not not alone! My almost 9-monther also pulls off immediately. We guessed it was difficulty breathing (stuffy sinuses) and eating, so we suctioned his nose...

    Re: Busy Baby while nursing!!

    DS's favorite activity is to "dial" on one side while drinking on the other. It's like he is seeking out something to pinch and twist. Ouch! Any suggestions? Has anyone tried those nursing...

    Re: help-mold and pump equipment??

    I use a Medela PISA. Does everyone take their pumps apart and clean it all the time? Can I ask what pumps everyone has?

    Re: Breast Pump Shields

    The Medela web site said if you skin built up in a "ring" then the shield may be too tight. I changed from the "hard" shield to a soft, flexible one, and it doesn't seem too big, just more...

    Re: DD crying ALL the time!

    Hi,

    DS was born on 9/6/06, so he and Sophie are close in age. He just got his first tooth. It may be teething. He's been drooling and fussy for a while now (~3.5 months). We didn't see any...

    I had a small rash, a tiny patch, that I didn't see the doctor about until a week or so after it started. The doctor said it was shingles nad to keep my baby away from it. When she told me, I...

    Re: constipation? no poop in 10 days

    If it cheers you up any, DS went for 11 days w/o a BM. I think the real trick was pruine juice mixed with expressed breastmilk or formula. I also used a combination of warm baths, some manual...

    Re: Starting Rice Cereal

    I just wanted to say that be careful about making your own baby food. I heard that nitrates might be very high in some foods (even organic carrots and sweet potatoes).

    Keep up the good work! If I didn't get the encouragement from this forum, I think I would have stopped long ago.

    I pump also and get varying amounts. I've almost always supplemented with formula...

    Re: Pump Pieces At Work

    I only pump once at work so I just wrap the horn in plastic wrap. Once I am done, I wrap it back up (same plastic wrap), take it home, and wash the horn. If I think I will pump twice, I take two...

    Wow! 2 1/2 hours! :D I feel better now.

    I changed technique because I was worried that my suppy would go down with block feeding (too long between for one or the other breast). I now change him...

    Re: Stinky!

    Thank you for posting!

    When I read your post, I had to laugh. My 4-month old has funky farts too. I can't figure it out. It used to be very mild, dare I say, almost sweet. I can't wait for...

    I don't like the Medela nipple (it's like the Nuk). You'd think it would be great but not so much. I've heard good things about the Second Nature bottles/nipples, and I personally like the Nuby...

    You have my sympathy! I also don't have time to pump but I had OALD so I thought it would be okay. My supply is decreasing. OALD is no protection against dwindling supply. BTW, don't drink...
