    Re: can't take the nights anymore!

    You are right, when you have other children it makes it that much more difficult. I have a 15 month old and 2 older children and when this baby comes (I'm pg now) I will not be able to nap when the...

    Re: can't take the nights anymore!

    Those first couple months really are difficult and they can take a lot out of you. I agree with the pp, hang in there, it really does get better. It's just all part of having a baby.

    I know you...

    Re: Juice

    We don't give our dd juice and don't drink juice as a family for the most part. Even if it's low sugar or no sugar added, it really has very little nutrients and only fills them up which means they...

    Re: 3 months old and showing interests..

    I totally agree with the pp.
    There are many reasons why starting solids at such a young age is not a good idea. The link will be helpful.

    Re: Teething at 4 months?

    Could or couldn't be. All my lo's starting drooling like crazy, putting hand in mouth (and everything else) around that age. I think it's a pretty normal pattern. They didn't get their first tooth...

    Re: Okay to mostly feed on one breast??

    My dd favored one breast. I would start her on the less favored side until she wanted to switch, then let her nurse on her favorite side and then switch her back to her least favorite side to see if...

  8. Re: Antibiotics causing diaper rash - solutions?

    When my dd had a wicked diaper rash caused by yeast, my ped. told me to get Lotrimin AF (for women) which is a foot cream for foot fungus (because it's all yeast related anyway) found over the...

    Re: Co-sleeping?

    It's not bad for him at all! There are wonderful benefits to co-sleeping and there are benefits not to, but it is a very personal decision. Anything that brings comfort and love to a child is not...

    Yes, absolutely normal! I won't lie to you...this will be a very difficult transition for you, especially since your world has revolved around your achievements and your career. It would actually...

    You are always making the right decision when you put your family first. One day you will look back and be thankful you did. When your lo is grown up and you look back, you will not remember (nor...

    Re: Spoilt?

    You cannot spoil a baby. A 2.5 month old does not even understand how to "manipulate" you. They cry because they have a need and you need to meet that need. Trust your instincts mamma, you are...

    Having done both, I would almost bet that these moms are not being completely honest with you. They are saying all these great things but convienently leave out the bad and very possibly leaving out...

    Re: Number of Feedings

    Sounds right to me! :)
  16. Re: Period but no period??? I know sounds crazy...

    Most women experience a few months of their body "gearing up" to start cycling again. Perfectly normal. I think I had about 3 months of it before AF finally showed up.

    Re: Herniated Belly Button???

    My son had one as well but it wasn't very big at all. We let it go thinking it would go away (he always had an "outtie") but over the years it got larger but the Ped. still said it was okay. By the...

    Re: Doing baby-led but lo doesn't eat much

    Yes, even with formula they still won't eat much at this age and it's more for exploration and learning.

    At this age most of the food will end up on the floor for sure! I would mostly spoon feed...

    Re: Doing baby-led but lo doesn't eat much

    You should not worry a bit. At this age your lo should still be getting all of his calories from bm, and first foods are really just for learning. At 7.5 months my dd was only receiving a few...

    Re: 9 month old and Cheese & Yogurt

    When our dd was 9 months old she absolutely loved cheese and yogurt. But, we have absolutely no allergies or even a history of allergies in our family so I was not concerned and she did great.

    Re: Sleeping in Crib

    Oh....8 DAYS! When I read it my brain read 8 WEEKS.
    In that case, a bassinet or co-sleeper or using a sling or wrap would be the way to go as the above poster said. All my babies (even the older...

    Re: Baby led=disaster in high chair

    Try giving him his spoon at other times besides eating time to just play with. Maybe that will help get it out of his system and free up eating time more.

    Make a routine for naps and bedtime. For example, a bedtime routine might be to give a bath, read a book or two, sing a few songs, nurse him, and rock him until he's just about asleep and then...

    Re: breastfeeding & cold medicine

    Try ZICAM. It's completely safe, even for pregnant women because it's homeopathic. You can get it just about anywhere.

    DJ's mom is right on about food being just for exploration and learning and also that BM is certainly all that's needed at this age. That being said, we introduced some chicken and also beef at this...
