    Re: applesauce?

    I never knew that! Funny, isn't applesauce one of the things they normally recommend people take when they have tummy trouble (BRAT diet)?

    Re: Oatmeal

    Last year I found a recipe for oatmeal cooked in apple cider with butternut squash and cranberries thrown in. For kicks one day about two months ago I let DS try some and he loved it! I make it for...

    Re: Yo Baby???

    I think Stonyfield also makes a plain whole milk yogurt... I seem to remember buying a big 32 oz tub of it a while back for DS's lunches (he gets yogurt with banana mashed in it).

    Although I'm a...

    Re: screaming while eating

    My DS screams all the time. He's a very bossy kid when it comes to his food - he wants it NOW and he wants it FAST! If your LO isn't trying to push your hand away or keep his mouth shut, he may just...

    Re: Cheerios/finger foods without teeth?

    Anything that will get mushy in the mouth when it comes into contact with saliva should be just fine for your LO. My DS is 14 months old now and only has 2 teeth but eats TONS of different foods -...

    Re: When is snacktime?

    Thanks for the replies, ladies. My DS is a total chowhound at mealtime, but I kept thinking that maybe I was missing something. It seems like he already does nothing but eat and sleep, because he's...

    Re: Squishy foods?

    Ahhhh! I never thought of that. I've been so intent on him picking up chunks of food by themselves. Good suggestion, thanks! :ita

    Squishy foods?

    My DS 13 months won't pick up anything that isn't toasted and crunchy!! :D So this means chunks of fruit, vegetable, meat etc. he won't touch it. He will allow me to feed him scrambled egg, but he...

    Re: cottage cheese

    My DS makes a funny face for every new food or flavor - even if he loves it!

    kci, try the cc again for a couple of days and if your LO is really pushing it away or refusing it, then she probably...

    Re: Starting more than one meal?

    You can start adding another meal, or increasing the amount of food at the one meal, at any point. The starting "suggestion" for a few teaspoons is really to see if the baby is able to keep the food...
  11. Re: DH and I feel so guilty to eat infront of DD...

    Don't feel guilty! Your LO is showing you she's ready to try new things, and that's a good thing. My DS is just over a year old and still only has one tooth, so I've been through the issue of...

    When is snacktime?

    I keep reading that you should offer 2 snacks in addition to the 3 meals. When do you all have snacktime? My DS's schedule is:

    6:30 wakes up and nurses
    8:00 breakfast
    10:00 nap until noon
    12:00...

    Re: New & Scared: hellp, c-section, preemie...

    Congrats on the new baby and on your decision to BF. I know just how you feel about that -- when your LO is in the hands of all the doctors and nurses you need to do SOMETHING.

    I think an ounce...

    Re: Growth Charts Question

    After DS was born we had visits from a public health nurse and she gave us a chart that starts at 26 weeks, so it does exist. I just don't think it's widely available since let's face it, most babies...

    We frequently visit WDW and I'm just curious as to why you're leaving the youngest at home? I could see if you're planning a special trip for the older two -- I know we sometimes feel like our other...

    Re: Doc says baby is anemic?

    If you were anemic during pregnancy, it's possible. Most babies get enough iron in utero to last 6-12 months depending on the baby. Some babies run out faster than others and may not be able to make...

    My nipples did exactly what you're describing, but I didn't notice until after my milk had come in. I think when my boobs grew again that it really magnified the problem.

    Re: Nipple Shields vs No Shields

    Welcome!

    From what I understood when I used a shield with my baby, the shield prevents your breast from getting stimulated as much, which can lead to supply problems in the long run. So it's not a...
