    Re: Is my 8-month-old weaning?

    Geez, yeah, you'd think they'd build little 30 minute timers into bottles so we know the second it switches from Most Nutritious Thing Ever to something not even fit to pour down the drain. :gg

    Re: Is my 8-month-old weaning?

    He's not handling the spoon himself, but after he swallows he drops his mouth open and wobbles in anticipation of the next bite. (It's the same wobbling he does for his favorite toys, and that he...
  4. Re: Flying w/ 4-month old who only nurses lying down ....

    Mine refused to nurse any way but lying down, starting at about 3 months also. We also took a cross-country flight with him around 4 months. It turned out that the whole airport/airplane thing was...

    Re: Is my 8-month-old weaning?

    We're working on finger foods/solid solids. He can pick them up and put them in his mouth, but he still gets a little gaggy at the swallowing part. At least twice a day he does some chair time with...

    Re: Is my 8-month-old weaning?

    I put four ounces in each bottle i send to day care with him, because every once in a while he actually takes it. (Yesterday he did really well - his two afternoon bottles were almost emptied.) I...

    Wow, thanks for the rapid and informative response. I feel better already!
  9. Blood when pumping - no pain or discomfort

    I just finished a pumping session for my 7-month-old, and glanced down to notice bloody milk in the right breast shield. The milk in the bottle looks fine, so if there's blood in it, there's not...

    nursing a congested 8-week-old

    My 8-week-old baby has gotten the cold that's going around. It's not too bad except when he nurses. He can barely breathe through his nose, he sounds like a little warthog snuffling around, and gets...
  11. Re: Oversupply, allergy, or something else?

    I know babies fuss. My first was a professional fusser. This one, though, was sweet and easy before the green poop started. Now he's so bad my MiL said it was probably colic except that he's calmest...
  12. Re: Oversupply, allergy, or something else?

    I'm glad to hear that y'all think it's not a health issue.

    Alas, the fussiness is really frustrating all of us. How long does it take to get better?
  13. Oversupply, allergy, or something else?

    My 4-week-old spent his first three weeks as a good eater and a good sleeper. Then his poop started turning green, and he got very gassy. Googling around, the two explanations I can find are...
