    Re: Questions on solids....

    I never warmed up her cereal in the microwave, mostly because my LO was too eager to eat in the beginning and wanted it now. The microwave may break down the properties of the BrM though. According...

    Thanks all! I spoke with my mom, who is watching her as I get over a nasty stomach bug :gross and she said that she did take to the spoon today eating yogurt and cereal. Maybe she was avoiding...

    Spoon strike?!?!

    We are suddenly experiencing a "spoon strike" (I guess that's what I like to call it :lol). My LO doesn't want anything off of the spoon. She wants to finger feed herself. She won't take bananas off...

    Re: Jar food versus homemade??

    I wrap the tray really well with saran wrap/plastic wrap (if the plastic isn't ripped I wipe it off, stick back in the freezer, and reuse for the next time I make her food). There's a brand out there...

    Re: Jar food versus homemade??

    I am a big fan of making my daughter her food. I know what goes into it, it's a lot cheaper, plus my daughter likes the taste better than the jarred food we've tried. If I see something that I don't...

    Re: Solids and bottlefeeding schedule

    I think when she was really sleepy and not very hungry she would nurse politely...but I would nurse in fear every time:o. She's had teeth for 2 months now and only started biting in the last 2 weeks....

    Re: Solids and bottlefeeding schedule

    The biting is because my supply is so low. I've tried everything I could...Fenugreek, Mother's Milk Tea, a combo of the both, extra pumping sessions, nursing weekends in bed, cutting back on her...

    Re: Rice

    I was giving my LO a few grains of rice at a time at about 7 months. My LO is half-Filipino and sticky Asian rice is a staple in our house. She kept watching us eat it, so we put some on her tray and...

    Re: Baby not gaining weight fast enough

    My LO was only 14lbs :yikes at her 9 month appointment. I was devastated because she had only put on 8 ounces in 2 months (she had also just gotten over a cold). The pedi suggested that I give her...

    Re: Flu vaccine

    Okay, not to be a pain in the rear or "high and mighty", but NO, you CANNOT get the flu from the flu vaccine (a.k.a. the flu shot). You can get the flu from the intranasal spray vaccine as this is a...

    Re: How to self feed?

    My LO didn't really self-feed until about 8 1/2 months and it was Cheerios. SHe loves them! We tried with some really soft diced carrots and she found them interesting. She tried to get them into her...

    My LO received her first dose back in October at 8 months. She hasn't been able to get her second dose because the pediatrician's office ran out. Since it's her first time to get it, the doctor's...

    Re: What to start with?

    We started with banana at 5 1/2 months. I read somewhere that it is good to start with because it is sweet like breastmilk. We didn't do rice cereal until after the 6 month mark. We started the sippy...

    Re: Worried

    My LO didn't seem too distraught after her first set of shots. She just seemed a little bit crabby for the next 12-24 hours. She nursed well, I just made sure not to touch her thighs too much as they...
  20. Re: In need of advice and support (kinda long)

    I was going to use Rx meds as an absolute last resort. I guess it kind of makes me feel like a failure if I have to use them.:o I have nothing against it, but personally, it just doesn't sit well...

    I've been able to freeze everything so far. I did notice that when I steamed my last batch of pears before pureeing, they didn't brown when I froze them. I may try to steam my next batch of plums and...
