    I've been nursing EVERY HOUR during the day. I nurse at about 7:00...

    I've gotten blisters right on the tip of my nipple before, but never knew what they were. Usually they go away after a few days though. Sometimes I get that skin where its like the blister popped...

    Re: Does not open mouth, not ready?

    Ok, I'm going to hold off on all solids and try nursing every 2 hours again. I only tried for 2 days last time, but I'm going to stick with it for at least a week this time. It just gets so...

    Re: Weight dropped below 3%

    He is pretty active, he can't crawl, but he commando-crawls around non stop. I'm pretty average, my first son was always 10-25%, higher a few times. His diapers are the usual yellow color. (I...

    Re: Weight dropped below 3%

    He nurses every three hours during the day, so 7, 10, 1, 4, 7, then goes to sleep. He used to sleep through the night, but I've started getting him up to nurse 1-2 times to squeeze in an extra...

    Re: Weight dropped below 3%

    We went in for my son's 1 month weight check, and he only gained a few ounces. I had them weigh him before and after I fed him and he only ate about 4 ounces. The ped suggested Fenugreek and...

    Re: Does not open mouth, not ready?

    I tried avocado today, he threw up :( He didn't actually eat any, just the taste or the texture of the little bitty pieces he had in his mouth made him gag. Up came some clear fluid. The banana I...

    Re: Weight dropped below 3%

    I tried to nurse him every two hours today (once i went three hours) and he would only nurse a total of about 10-15 minutes most times. Then right before I put him to bed, he didn't want to nurse at...

    Re: Does not open mouth, not ready?

    I may give it a try again. It just seemed like he was eating less when I was trying to feed him every two hours. Maybe I'll start writing it down so I can see at the end of the day how often he...

    Re: Does not open mouth, not ready?

    I think she would have suggested solids whether he was dropping down or not, just because 6 months is when they start suggesting that. I think she encouraged it a bit more than before because of the...

    Re: Weight dropped below 3%

    I have tried nursing him more, and he just gets aggravated with me. I'll try to feed him after two hours, or three, or four, and he'll nurse for 5 minutes each side and he's done!

    Hi,
    My ped has suggested that I start my 6 month old on solids since his weight has dropped off the chart (below 3% from 10-25%). He was about 3 1/2 weeks early.

    I try once a day with cereal or...

    I used to move my son from one side of me to the other, but it made me scared he was going to roll off the bed, so now I mostly nurse from just one side, then when he wakes up really early in the...

    Re: How many times do you nurse per day?

    That's interesting... intuitively I would think that the older they got, the more they need to drink. But for some reason I also think that they'd go longer between nursing and only nurse about 5-6...

    Re: Reflux, Solids and Sleeping

    I tried limiting my diet for a week, but it didn't help. It's been over a week since he's had any solids, and its still not helping, so apparently it wasn't what he was eating.

    Hmm, so many things that could be causing it! His dosage has not been increased since he was about 3 months old, so I was going to talk to his ped about that at his next visit. After reading your...
