    Baby bite

    DS gave me quite a nip yesterday with his bottom teeth and now I have a really sore red oozing lump on the bottom of my nipple. I've been very lucky so far, in that this is the first time in 10...

    want to wean

    So I think I have reached the point where I want to wean my 10 month DS. I had hoped to make it to 1 year but at this point I just don't think I can physically or emotionally continue.
    He has shown...

    Your little guys weight gain looks very like mine. My DS is 7 months old and also dropped to the 9th percentile after gaining quite well in the first 3 months. He also had a tongue tie clipped at...

    Re: Ready to give up

    The advice I got was from the nurse at DS2's six month check up. They gave me a sheet listing the recommended diet from 3-12 months. It would seriously shock you. At 3 months the diet sheet...

    I've been trying to stay away from the internet recently because I think I was becoming a little crazed trying to find solutions to all my problems online.

    Re: Ready to give up

    DS sleeps in a crib right next to my bed. I have read the benefits of co-sleeping but it really isn't something I am comfortable with. We have no risk factors but there has been loss in my extended...

    Re: Ready to give up

    DS2 is 5 months old. I am currently using the Ergo to carry him around but he only likes it if I keep my attention focused on him. I don't see how that would change with a wrap. I tried to prepare...

    Ready to give up

    I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this but I don't know where else it belongs.

    I've just about got to the point where I can't take any more. I've posted before about problems with...

    Re: Weight gain

    So I went to the doctor yesterday to discuss DS's slow weight gain. The answer....start solids!

    Re: Weight gain

    Hi,

    Excessive Vomiting

    DS is 4 weeks old. He nursed like a pro from right after birth and we have had no problems so far. However, for the past week or so he has been spitting-up/vomiting a lot. To feed him I offer the...

    Re: Hyperthyroidism

    My TSH level was 0.11. On the documentation he gave me healthy levels (in units of uUI/mL) are 0.55-4.78. So mine are quite low. The T3 and T4 were within normal range T3=3.55 and T4=1.47. The last...

    Had a good talk with DH about all the issues last night. It seems that everything can be traced back to the pediatrician!

    Re: Work is not working!

    I guess my worry is that he never seems to give hunger cues anymore. He never seems hungry!

    To be honest, my response when the doc said I was feeding too much was actually embarrassment. I felt like a fool who didn't know what I was doing when it came to breastfeeding. The doc actually...
