  1. Might need to remove an amalgam filling

    I have this one amalgam filling that my dentist's been telling me needs to be replaced since I saw him while pregnant. Of course, we decided that we'll wait until I give birth and stop...

    Re: Cuisine Art Hand Blender?

    That's what I have. It does the job. It's a bit big. I wish there was something that would work with really small amounts of food. Plus, it splashes around a bit.

    Re: Am I giving too many solids?

    My 9.5 months old eats more solids than that. In part because he won't nurse or take a bottle during the day - before or after solids, or in between.

    He nurses twice (sometimes once, sometimes 3...
  4. Re: Almost 6 Mo Baby's Not Eating!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    RE: #1 Just make sure whatever makes it into her mouth is something she can "chew" with either her gums or her tongue. Be careful, for example, with raw apples - she might "bite" off a piece while...

    Re: Still constipated

    Forgot to answer about whether I told the doctor.

    I did. She just tells me to try to feed him more solids to make up for not drinking. I am going to get a second opinion. I don't think he has...

    Re: Still constipated

    The only fruit he likes are avocados and bananas. The latter we had to stop because of constipation though it doesn't seem to make a difference. He does eat real dried prunes soaked in water off...

    Re: Still constipated

    Well, I breastfed my eldest too and he had "normal" bf poop - loose but with substanse to it, not watery.

    As for the mesh bags, are those the ones sold at BabiesRUs, called "Safe Feeder" or...

    Re: Still constipated

    We haven't tried popsicles. They sound like a good idea as long as I can convince my Russian mother and aunt (who are watching him) that he won't get sore throat from eating anything that is not...

    Re: Still constipated

    He's been off formula completely for the last two weeks. My family actually thinks it's my breastmilk that doesn't agree with him. They keep reminding me how before solids he always had kind of...

    Re: Still constipated

    Nursing more is not an option. First of all, I work during the day. Second, my son refuses to nurse during the day and has been doing that for months now. He just prefers solids. I've tried...

    Still constipated

    After a few days of normal stools, then a few days of constipation, a couple of glycerin suppositories, and a few more normal days, my 9 months old is back to his old constipated self.

    We've long...

    LOL! From your name I am guessing you are of Russian background. I am of Russian-Jewish background myself. There is something about our mothers and grandmothers and force-feeding. :) I was the...

    Re: Constipation

    Well, he was pooping 5 times a day for two days (normal poop, not loose), so yesterday I gave him a banana again - he just loves them so-o much, can eat 1/2 of a banana with a 4 oz bm based cereal. ...

    Re: Constipation

    Hi everyone,

    Thanks for your responses. Sorry I didn't respond for so long. Had a brain fart and forgot my ID. Kept trying to log on with what I thought was right and it wouldn't tell me what's...

    Constipation

    My 8.5 month old has been constipated for weeks. The poor thing strains and strains only to produce a little piece or nothing at all. He eats three solid meals a day - whole grain cereal, grated...
  17. Nursing strike - has anyone ever recovered?

    I saw it coming for nearly 2 months. Between my very unreliable letdown (and stressing about it) and my son's apparent fondness for cereal (knock on wood) I guess it was bound to happen. Last night...
  18. Re: Feeling let down with NO LET DOWN

    I've had the same problem on and off for the last month and a half. My son is 6.5 months now. What helps me are nipple twists - take each nipple between your forefinger and thumb and gently twist...
  19. Re: Help! 10 week old not eating much, sleeping lots

    My son did the same thing. I've actually have been seeing a lot of posts like that here. I can't explain it. Just saying - us too. And I was doing the same thing you were doing - weighing him,...

    Re: SO SCARED, anyone else?

    Don't worry about weird faces. I just started giving my son sweet potato and he makes faces but then eats 1/2 of a jar anyway. A co-worker told me the same thing about his son and avocados. When...

    Thanks everyone. Our doctor and we all come from the same culture (old Soviet Union) where babies were given foods other than breastmilk from like 1 month old (carrot juice at 1 month, egg yolk at...
  22. Vegetables - before or after nursing

    The doctor said to feed them before nursing, but my son is such a finiky nurser that I am afraid he won't take as much milk if I give him vegetables first. They have significantly less calories than...

    Re: My milk "digests" cereal

    My son is only 6 months old, so, no he is not self feeding. :) And cold cereal is not an option because he won't eat it if it is not warm enough - and that means very warm.

    He's actually been...

    My milk "digests" cereal

    Does anyone else have this problem? When I mix cereal with my milk, it starts out thick but within minutes becomes very thin. My son likes his cereal thick, not to mention it is easier to feed.

    Re: The days of low appetite

    His diaper count OK in terms that it is not below the minimum, but I know he gets more/heavier when he eats better. But here is the thing - he still eats almost the same quantity of his cereal...
