    Re: She hates it!

    My DD didn't eat solids well until about a month ago! We tried at 6 months, she wasn't into it, so I just stopped trying. We tried again a few weeks later, when she tried to take my banana. I...

    Hummus?

    Anybody know when it's okay to introduce hummus? I make my own and it has lemon juice and tahini (sesame seed paste) in it. It has a few other things as well, but I'm mainly worried about the lemon...
  5. Re: butternut squash as finger food-how do you make it?

    Good question! I love butternut squash, so I can't wait to feed it my LO! I haven't tried this myself, but I would think you could cut the squash in half lengthwise after peeling it. Then scoop...

    Thanks for the quick replies! She does take a pacifier, but usually only for naps, she tends to spit it out otherwise. Our usual routine is this: baby wakes and feeds around 7am, I pump right...

    Re: Does everyone wear some time of nursing pad?

    Nope, only wore nursing pads for about a week total. I never wear them anymore. Some people are long term leakers (I have a friend who still wears breast pads and her dd is 20 months old!), and...

    Re: breast emptied after feedin..still milk there?

    This may not be the favorite answer, but it could be your baby just wants to comfort suck and therefore is on all day. If bfing is going well (despite the thrush), another option would be to allow...

    Freeze avocado?

    Can you freeze avocado? I ask because there are some super cheap at the grocery store, but we won't be beginning solids for another couple of months. Just wondered if anyone had done it?

    Thanks,...
  13. Re: Not enough hindmilk and no seeds in poop? Should I pump?

    I go to a weekly bf support group at an LC's office and I showed her my DD's poop because I was concerned that there weren't as many seeds as there used to be and she said the color looked great and...
