    Re: 6 month old attached at the hip 24/7!

    Solids don't help with STTN- that's an old wives tale ;)

    I think it's a phase. Both of my boys did it around that age. Have you tried a mei tai? It has a bit of a learning curve but is far more...

    Re: Vitamin D drops??

    They do taste nasty- I remember from my first son.

    Re: won't latch w/o shield

    Idk. Maybe not. I went off the IV the next day so maybe I should have waited. I definitely don't regret it though as it helped at the time and for us it didn't cause any problems.

    Re: 2 days to go...

    I had a planned c/s and they still took my little guy off to the nursery. I was reacting badly to the spinal and this hospital has a STUPID STUPID STUPID policy that the father is not to be alone...

    Milkmaid, for me, all the fluids made my nipples flat so he had trouble but yes, some nipples are different and some baby's mouths are different as well. I had never heard anything about a shield...

    Hmmmm, could this be why I don't have mood swings like I sometimes did prebreastfeeding? I didn't realize it limited exposure to estrogen. That was an excellent article though! I love reading...

    I certainly don't think any damage was done nor should you feel even remotely guilty :gvibes

    Re: Bladder Infection - AZO

    I've used it. I have UTI's quite frequently. I was told that it was 100% safe for the baby but it *MIGHT* turn his pee orange too- which it didn't.

    Re: Why wont he drink soy milk??

    Yes please don't use the almond milk! Nuts are a big allergen.

    Rice milk may lack the essential fats and nutrients but there are PLENTY of ways to make up for that (avocado for example for the...

    Re: Does a baby need water?

    I don't think I necessarily agree with this. Breastmilk is considered a clear fluid and an electrolyte. I don't really see why you would NEED water if it was 90degrees outside when you could just...

    Most of the "horror stories" are not normal. This is a post that I made 2 days after my sons first birthday on a different forum. Maybe it will help you.

    Re: crying while BF

    I also had trouble with an overactive letdown and oversupply and it resulted in a very frustrated baby.

    If it's during your letdown, pull the baby off gently (insert your pinky in the corner of her mouth and break the suction) and spray into a towel or burp cloth and then relatch her. It should help. ...

    Re: Should I BF a vomiting 10 month old?

    I disagree with some of what the PP said. My son was VIOLENTLY vomitting due to an allergic reaction. I just nursed him as often as he was willing and it definitely helped. When they're vomiting...
