  1. Re: How many "meals" a day at 6.5MO?

    My LO had his 6 mo checkup this morning and I had a LIST of questions for him about starting solids. He told me that solids/cereal should not take up more than 1/2 of his diet, to let him eat as...
  2. Re: Having a c-section - will I still be able to breastfeed?

    Congrats on your upcoming arrival!

    I had a C-Section and had absolutely no problem at all with breastfeeding. My C-section was an emergency, but I was not asleep for it. I could have had the...

    Re: Pulling tops of ears

    My LO is 5 mo and always plays with his ear while I'm feeding him. It's like he folds it in half. :lol So I'll let him old my finger while I'm feeding him so he won't make his ear stick out. haha...

    Tired baby, off and on

    My LO fights sleep all the time! I think he's afraid that he's going to miss something. :lol Anyway, he's gotten to where he'll actually take the pacifier out of his mouth b/c he knows that it's...

    Am I a bad mommy?

    DH and I are vacationing w/my in-laws. They see us about once a month, which means they get to see my LO once a month. Sometimes when they're holding him, he starts grunting or fussing b/c he wants...

    Re: getting too much foremilk?

    My pediatrician told me green poop is OK for a breastfed baby.

    My LO had green poop for the longest time. Now my milk has balanced out (I had way too much in the beginning) and his poops are...

    Re: Sucking fingers/hands

    My LO did the same thing around that age. I just kept moving his hand out of his mouth. I sort of noticed that my LO did this toward the end of a feeding. But I think it was just a phase, as he no...
  9. Re: Problems during feeding - too many to list

    It sounds like you have over-active let down. Whenever you have letdown, have you watched it? Does it spray, squirt, shoot out? When my LO was around 4 weeks old, he would nurse until my letdown. ...
  10. Re: supposed to sleep thru the night?

    I feel like I'm in the same boat. I've been doing too much reading up on what a baby should be doing. I've had to tell myself that my LO may not do things "by the book" when it comes to sleeping. ...
  11. Re: Brand New mom- need some reassurance/advice

    Congrats on your new little one!

    From what I've read, 3-4 days after delivery is normal for your milk to start coming in. So I'd give it a little more time. In my opinion, I don't think your...

    Re: why...?

    Hi there momma! Your situation sounds like the way things were with my LO around 7 weeks old. When he was born, he weighed 8 lbs 15 oz and at his 2 mo checkup, he weighed 12 lbs 15 oz. So his...
  14. Re: When does he get more efficient?

    My LO was about 7 weeks old. i couldn't figure out why he was pulling off and fussing so much and I finally realized he was trying to tell me he was done. So now he eats 4-5 minutes per side.

    Re: What's better?

    Thanks for all the tips. My LO sleeps, I would say 3-4 hours during the day. (most are in 30 min-1 hr sessions) I put him to bed around 8 and he'll sleep till 6:30 or 7, although he wakes several...

    Re: What's better?

    It's still up in the air. I try and get him down every 1 1/2 hours b/c he'll only sleep for about 30-40 minutes. His sleeping is pretty consistent but how long he's awake depends on how fussy he is...

    What's better?

    FTM here...My LO is one who fights his sleep. I mean, his eyes will be rolling back and then he'll start fussing. Sometimes I'll stay persistent and continue to rock him or let him fuss for a few...
  18. Re: will offering a cup make my supply low?

    My LO is also 5 months old and won't take a bottle. I think what I'm going to do is introduce the sippy cup when he's 6 months old and we start solids. I'll just offer the cup w/water in it when...

    Re: first tooth?

    My LO is 5 months old and started the drooling in his 3rd month. One day in particular, he drooled excessively and actually gnawed on his pacifier. He also had diarrhea (which I've read is a sign)....

    How often?

    How often should 5 month olds be eating? I try and feed OD, but it doesn't seem like enough to me. I mean he has plenty of wets and dirties, but since he was 7 weeks old, he'll eat on one side in 5...

    Re: Sleeping thru the night..

    A lot of people support the CIO method and that's fine, but I just can't stand to see my baby cry when I'm right there and can help him and comfort him. I guess I feel like he should be sleeping...

    Sleeping thru the night..

    My LO just turned 5 mo and is still waking up 2-3 times a night. I don't think every time he wakes up he's actually hungry, but I offer the breast and he'll eat, thus falling back asleep. When does...

    Curious about solids..

    When did you start your LO on solids?
    How much did you give him/her?
    How long would you wait after trying one food before introducing another? Days, weeks?
    Once you found foods your LO liked, at...

    Starting off..

    I'm going to be starting my LO on solids next month, when he turns 6 mos. So far all he has seen is BM and I plan on EBF until he is 6 months old. Of course, I plan on continuing to nurse him until...
