    Re: lecithin GRANULES dose

    I took 1 tablespoon daily as well. That was the recommended dosage to take as a nutritional supplement.

    I've gone through this with my 2 year old and have learned that it is a clear sign that he is just not tired yet. So now I don't even bother trying to get him to sleep until he is obviously tired. If...

  10. Re: Soreness of breast tissue or Thrush?

  12. Re: Nap Fiascos! ***For New Beginnings Magazine***

    My toddler transitioned to only one nap shortly after he turned 1. Then around 18 months he became resistant to napping altogether. Even though he still clearly needed a nap.

    Re: All Night Nursing @18 months

    I think it is a phase related to language development and increasing independance, which is both exciting and frightening for them, so they are seeking comfort. My ds went through the same thing at...

    Re: Recurrent clogged nipple pore

    The jar suggested a measured tablespoon per day as a dietary supplement, so that is what I took. Only I eyeballed it by heaping a regular teaspoon because it was easier to just dump and stir. Put it...
