  1. Re: baby won't sleep! and isn't gaining weight.

    That sounds great! I definitely would not worry about waking her to feed during the day - in fact, you may find that as she naturally starts to space out her daytime feedings, she will be more...

    Re: Doesn't seem to like solids

    I agree with the other posters. Food is mostly just for experimenting at that age, anyway! Keep in mind BM is all your baby needs for the first year; there's certainly no reason for concern if she...

    Re: Schedule vs no schedule

    This all sounds completely normal. I'm confused why you say "he isn't going through a growth spurt" - most babies do go through a growth spurt at exactly this age, and you can tell by how they want...

    Re: Ok, is there a trick to it?

    I would not put any emphasis at all on getting her to use a sippy. I don't mean "just forget about it," I mean that at 1 year she's going to be testing boundaries and asserting her independence as...

    Re: 4 month sleep regression?

    Yes, it is absolutely normal for a baby to start waking up around four months; cruise the "Sleep" forum and you will see "my baby just turned four months..." over and over again :rolleyes:

    There...

    Re: Breastfeeding before naps

    If you just need to pop him in a sling or settle in with a good book and let him nurse for off and on for hours...there's absolutely nothing wrong with that, and your body will definitely get the...

    Re: 10 month old ONLY NURSES

    One word...smoothies!

    DS (22 months) has only recently started eating solids enthusiastically. When he was younger, I'd offer finger foods regularly, but he was rarely interested. Smoothies,...

    Re: teeth - help!

    Well, unless he's actually biting you, I'm not sure that there's too much you can do other than what you're already doing (i.e., adjusting positions to find the most comfortable one). If you feel...

    Re: Won't take bottle

    I don't have too much personal experience with this, but one thing I've read that helps is to make sure YOU are nowhere nearby when she's offered the bottle. At 10 weeks she's old enough to know that...

    You have received some great advice! I agree most of all with everyone who said listen to your baby and trust your instincts.

    On a personal note, I understand that CIO and sleep training works for some families, and if you feel that is the choice for your family I get that. But I have a...
  18. Re: ...or as long as beneficial to both mom and child

    I understand that you don't feel like you can switch pedis, but do try to remember that you don't have to "prove" anything to him. He is a service provider, not your child's caregiver.

    Seven month old babies do not self-wean; I mean, I'm sure it has happened, but it's very rare, certainly not a commonplace occurence related to normal teething. There is a big difference between a...
