    Re: Does your lo do this?

    :ita WSS! My LO always grabs excitedly for DHs beer bottles...certainly not gonna give him beer :lol We always gave DS something to play with, like a spoon, so he felt included in mealtimes.
  2. Re: how often should he be pooping now?

    Great! I will try that. I keep waiting for him to really eat KWIM? I feel like we've been doing BLS forever and he just dabbles :lol I guess that's the point, that he'll dig in when he's ready...
  3. Re: how often should he be pooping now?

    He grabs for any glass he sees...:lol I guess we could start offering it to him regularly with any solids. Since he's 9 mos, should I be worried about him filling up on water vs BM? Thanks!
  4. Re: how often should he be pooping now?

    Thanks for the link! I don't think he's doing a LOT of straining, but it usually doesn't result in much more than a tbsp or so of poo. So I guess I'm trying to get a baseline to see if I need to cut...

    It sounds like you have a difficult situation...:hug My MIL is also not well-informed on BF babies etc, but luckily she works with me more. Since it sounds like you can't change your situation, I...
  6. Re: Started having trouble pumping today

    That's happened to me before a few times, with no real explanation :shrug usually my supply goes back up after a while.

    That said, there are a lot of reasons why your supply could go down.
  7. how often should he be pooping now?

    DS has been on some solids for a few months now (not much, bc he still doesn't really eat much of what we put in front of him). We have had a few issues w constipation, but they were easily resolved...

    Re: Starting Solids

    You can certainly go backwards with the solids, with no problems for your LO. I do that frequently for my DS - when he gets constipated from something I cut out some/all solids for a day or two to...

    Re: Breastfeeding vs solids

    :ita with pp - you can cut back on the solids if you're worried. When my DS is too distracted to nurse, I go into a quiet, dark room, or sometimes I let him play for a few minutes to get it out of...

    Re: just started and need help!

    What a cutie! :love Sounds like you guys are doing great...this is a busy time, and my DS has been very distractible since 5-6 mos too. If I want him to nurse better, I go to a quiet, dark room, or...
  12. Re: falling asleep while nursing & switching sides

    :welcome yep, my DS was a sleepy guy too for the first several weeks. It's common, like pp said. I would give him a little nudge under the chin or stroke his palm and that usually got the sucking...

    Re: Baby led solids...?

    There are lots of threads here on BLS, sometimes called BLW...if you're worried about safety I would start slowly and def recommend an infant CPR class for your own peace of mind. Try soft foods,...

    :ita it's very helpful and reassuring to have that contact before you're actually dealing with a tiny baby and all the other things that go with the birth! Good luck, mama, and remember you can...

    Re: 8 month old refusing to feed


    Sorry, no personal experience with this one, but it sounds like a nursing strike. http://www.kellymom.com/bf/concerns/baby/back-to-breast.html

    Re: Biting!!!

    Re: How much do your LO's weigh?

    I think people where I live must be crazy bc they are always saying my DS is chubby - he's 8 mos and about 18 lbs! He has a little roll around his knees that I :love to pinch (gently!) when he nurses!

    supply issues again?

    I hate to start another thread on this, but I'm such a worrier about supply. I've been pumping 11-12 oz at work forever, then yesterday and today I barely squeezed out 9. Nothing that I can think of...
