  1. Pls talk some sense into me re: sleep training

    I think I just need to reassurance of some other like minded parents. Let me start by saying that I don't know what is wrong with me. DD was a TERRIBLE sleeper (she didn't STTN until she was 2.5). ...
  2. Looking for Reassurance - Dr is causing me to doubt myself

    I've found this forum extremely helpful and supportive over the course of the breastfeeding relationships with my DD and now my DS.

    My son had is 6 month "well baby" visit with the dr yesterday. ...
  3. Re: Conflicted about co-sleeping (baby v. hubby?)

    We co-slept with DD because it was the only way anyone got a decent amount of sleep. When people would question or criticize about how it affected the intimate side of my relationship with DH I...
  4. Re: Also need sleep! Waking to eat or fuss?

    If this is working for you and your LO and you feel it's getting both of you more sleep why stop? He's still very young at 3 months and you have lots of time to worry about him learning to sleep...
  5. Re: Also need sleep! Waking to eat or fuss?

    5 hours is defined as "sleeping through the night" for an infant. The problem is not babies but our expectations of them and their sleep. We expect them to sleep like adults and that's totally...

    Re: New to this please help

    Re: Is DS starving in the evenings??

    My son did the exact same thing at that age. He's 8 weeks now and the excessive fussiness and cluster feeding have started to diminish slightly (through no actions on my part).

    I too found a warm...
  8. Constant Nurser, How to Find Time to Pump

    DS (7 weeks has me feeling like a breastfeeding newbie again! He's just so much different than his sister (3 years) that I'm feeling a little unsure of myself at times.

  9. Night-weaning with no help from DH

    For those who have night-weaned their LO's am I crazy to think I can do this on my own?

    DH is a great dad, very involved but works shift work so his help would be inconsistent. I worry that this...

    DD will be 1 year old at the end of the month and while she likes to try a lot of food, her solids intake in quite small. I'm really not concerned but was thinking of making smoothies and trying...
  12. Re: Night weaning? How young is too young?

    This is my experience with DD who just turned 10 months. Until this past week she was waking up every 1.5-2 hours on a good night and I was at my limit.

    After seeing some improvement overall with...

    Re: Sleeping throught the night

    DD just turned 10 months old and still gets up VERY frequently to nurse at night. Not sure what the weather is like where you are but it's been unseasonably hot where we live and I suspect she's...
  14. Re: Needing help with 7 month old up at night.

    :ita Excellent advice! DD's sleep has been crappy since she was 3.5 months old and as soon as I stopped stressing about it and started to do what worked and got everyone in our family the most...

    Re: 6 mo appt. ?'s on dr's appointment

    I got a similar handout! I just let all the sleeping and nursing advice I get from others go in one ear and out the other. No one tells me when I can eat and drink and I feel my DD is owed the same...

    Maybe she's not ready?

    DD recently turned 6 months old so we've slowly started our foray into the world of solids.

    I made some applesauce for her and tried it with her this morning and while she seems very interested,...

    Re: cues

    :ita w/ pp. This is the advice my LC gave me when DD was that age and always seemed fussy. I think as long as you offer the breast first to ensure LO is hungry then using a paci is fine. Sometimes...

    Re: 3 month old not eating as much

    My DD went through this at around the same age. From what I've read it's quite common as the pp pointed out, they are more aware of everything going on around them (which is more interesting than...

    Re: tierd of waking up at night

    I'm sorry but I have to respectfully disagree with this advice and I'm curious why so many people feel it isn't a good idea? If mom has more rest and baby is happy where is the downside?

    To the...

    Re: How often to feed at 4 months?

  23. Suddenly dealing with crappy latch

    DD is 4 1/2 months old so we are dealing with a lot at the moment in terms of changes in her sleeping (more night waking) and her constant distractability.
