  1. Re: New here, 2nd baby--Help, I think I have become a pacifier!

    I hate the "spoiled" speech that people give to parents. You cannot SPOIL a child this young!
    I think our kids are about the same age and Abby is doing the same thing a lot of the time. She just...

    Frustrated

    Abby's still not gaining any weight. In fact, with that whole schedule of every 2 hours over the weekend she gained NOTHING.
    Every doctor or nurse I see suggests supplementing with formula. I'm...
  4. Re: Should I keep baby in the room while in hosptial?

    Our hospitals don't even offer the choice anymore. You have a crib in your room and that is the end of it, unless there are complications, of course.

    Mind you, I always wanted her to bunk with me...

    Re: Weight and Feeding Issues

    I left the Public Health Unit today crying because I feel...
  6. Re: 2 month well baby check - uncirumsized question...

    That seems weird to me too, but I'm afraid I'm not much of an expert on foreskins.
    To be honest.. I've only ever seen one!

    :eek: I would have jumped up too!

    Re: Sleeping 6 hours - too early??

    My daughter does this too. Mind you, she's only two and a half weeks. I've been waking her up every 3 hours because she is not gaining weight fast enough, but I think that if your son is thriving it...
  9. Re: I have to wean...and he just won't have it!

    I agree whole heartedly.
    Keep pumping to keep up supply & have someone else feed him with the bottle.
    Why should he take rubber when he knows you have the breasts??

    I wish you the best in your...

    Re: Need better reply to this criticism/"concern"

    Make all of them read "So That's What They're For" by Janice Tamaro.
    Good resource. Facts tend to quiet people, or so I've noticed.

    Keep up the good work. You're doing the best you can for your...

    Re: adding calories to my milk?

    The only thing I can suggest is to MAKE SURE that your babe is taking in loads of the hindmilk. If that requires you to pump a bit before putting her on your breast- It would be worth a try.

    Re: Baby Falls Asleep

    My daughter is 16 days old and this is still the case. I'm waking her to feed her, though waking her can take 20 minutes or longer.
    We've found that taking her clothes off works, as well as changing...

    Re: What's the rule about caffine?

    My 16 day old babe doesn't seem to notice the caffeine. But I'm surprised your doctor said 3 cans of pop. I was under the understanding that cola's had more caffeine than coffee.
