    Re: carseat trouble :(

    Remember that hanging anything from the carseat handle can potentially come into contact w/ baby during a crash. As a carseat tech I generally reccomend that if you're not willing to throw it at your...

    Re: Not gaining weight

    There's nothing wrong w/ supplementary solids at this age given after baby nurses. We're on WIC and we use the babyfood we're given. They give you a ton though so be prepared! lol I actually get the...
  4. Re: Formula is the answer to everything (rant)

    We'd probably be in the same boat if Olivia hadn't started at 75%, lol. She's down to 10% now but no problems. She's just under 17# at almost 11 mos. I doubt she hits 18# by 1 like Evan did. :) Plus,...
  5. Re: what should a 6 months old eat?

    Mama milk. :) We didn't start till 8 mos b/c there was no need, Olivia was doing fine on just milk. You could do avocado, sweet potatos, bananas.

    Re: Bottle Strike at 7 months

  7. Re: Is breastmilk alone good enough for my 9 month old?

    Re: change in bowel movement???

    Sounds normal. Solids generally thicken up the stools like adult stools are. As long as she has no problems getting it out, I wouldn't worry.

    Re: Am I going too slow?

    We didn't even start till 8 mos. She was happy w/ mama milk so why bother? lol We just did every few days then and then once a day maybe around 9 mos. She's 10.5 mos now and we're moving towards 2...

    Re: Never have felt a let down

    I have never leaked or felt letdown. We did have some supply struggles the first few wks, but I'm still bfing my 10.5 mos old w/ few solids and things are fine. She's my 4th bf baby and I've only...
  12. Re: Making oatmeal, rice, quinoa, etc. with breastmilk

    You could make it extra thick w/ water and then thin it w/ bm.
  13. Re: Cow's milk after ONE instead of formula?

    Formula is better than cow's milk IMO. Are you still going to be nursing 3 good nursings a day? If so, you really don't need anything extra as far as calcium goes. I would rather do 1/2 and 1/2 or...

    Re: Is it Reflux?

    Sounds like it to me. The gulping you hear is him spitting up and swallowing it. It's called silent reflux and it's worse for them than regular reflux. A lot of reflux is related to milk and/or soy...

    Re: Need help for SIL ASAP!!!

    My 3rd child was severely underfed for a while before we figured out there was a problem. She was nursing so it was hard to see that she wasn't getting enough. Having more kids desn't mean you're...

    No, I have no food allergies and neither does my husband. I do have seasonal allergies though, as do all my kids. Thankfully all but the baby are o.k. now as far as foods go. My oldest hasn't had...

    Re: Need help for SIL ASAP!!!

    Poor baby, of course he's hungry! 19-25ozs a day is normal bm intake. Is she pumping often? Trying to get him to breast? Trying to feed him in the tub or in a dark, quiet room? Having topless time w/...

    Re: Small amount of cereal in bottle

    As a mom to 4 allergic kids and 3 who have had reflux, don't get me started on adding cereal to a bottle, oye! I know it's hard to be a ftm, I thank the Lord everyday I didn't have Evan or Olivia...
  20. Re: Possible Nut Allergies: difference between almonds and peanuts?

    Almonds are actually a seed, they used to be considered a tree nut. Obviously that means nothing if he's allergic to almonds, but the chance of reacting to other tree nuts is smaller I think b/c of...

    Re: Baby needs to gain weight

    Is baby losing weight? Does he seem malnourished and like he's still hungry and needing to eat more? If not, I don't see a problem. Very few babies stay at their birth % forever. There's a large...

    Re: Weaning by 12 months..?

    How long are you gone for weddings? Most moms after 1 stop pumping at work and are gone easily 8-10 hrs and still bf at night. There's no need to wean completely assuming you're not gone entire...
  24. Re: Yet another "ped pushing foods at 6 months" thread

    The new reccomendations are to start cereal last, after 9 mos, especially if baby has any stomach issues, allergies or reflux. It's hard to digest and just plain unnecessary in any baby getting...

    Solids are also reccomended if your baby is too fat and taking in 'too much' bm. Solids cure everything, it's amazing! lol I just looked at what we have here and the most I've found was 70 cal, that...
