    Re: Uncontrollable Chills and Shaking!

    This is common, as I was told. I had it with both and was told it was hormones changing.

    Hope it eases up.

    Re: fussiness at daycare and car

    Thanks Shannon,

    I feel better knowing that what I am giving him at daycare to feed is pretty adequate. I know they would tell me too, if he was acting like he wanted more, they were good about...

    Re: fussiness at daycare and car

    I forgot to put in there, that he will not take a paci. My dd took one just fine, but he spits it out constantly. I have been working with him to take one, b/c I know this has saved us numerous...

    fussiness at daycare and car

    My five month old son (tomorrow) has always seemed like a mellow baby to me as compared to my DD, however I am getting a different story from daycare. These ladies had my DD as well and they tell me...

    Re: Pacifiers and daycare...?

    We used a pacifer for our DD at daycare. It was a necessity for her to make it through the day and through other situations in life where I couldn't be right there to soothe her through bfeeding. I...

    Re: So confused...please help!

    You are fine to wait longer if you want to. We waited until dd was almost 8 months before introducing her first food, which was bananas and that is about all she would eat (solid wise) for a while. ...

    Re: Sleep issues

    About that time in my dd's life ( she is 2 now) she wouldn't nap. I remember it well. However, it was just a phase. I found if I swaddled her or let her sleep in the swing or in a carrier she...
  8. Re: Fussy at nipple, 'snacky'-style feeding, possibly not getting hind-milk

    I had similar issues with my dd, who is now 2, she was just a higher needs one. I recommend swaddling before you feed, then as you lay your child down keep hands on him/her firmly for a few seconds....

    preparation for breastfeeding?

    I will admit with DD, I didn't prepare myself at all for breastfeeding besides the hospital course. Thank goodness I had a good latch and a supportive doula. One thing I did experience the first...

    Re: 9:30 am feeding

    From my experience, most working moms can't pump at the normal times our lo would bfeed. I, too, had the problem with DD and am sure I will have that issue once DS arrives. My advice is to figure...

    Re: Pumping Schedule -- Help!

    Are you completely opposed to nursing at night? I can't imagine what you are feeling like. I myself had to pump 4-5 times a day when my dd was that little and I felt like a guinea pig on one of...

    Can I use my deep freeze on 2nd?

    I have some leftover supply from my dd that dates back to 1/07 and 2/07. I am due in October with #2, can I use this with my new LO? This has been in our deep freezer since I pumped it. DD stopped...

    Re: Worried about returning to work...

    Like other PP suggested, I would pump before school started, at lunch and then at the end of the day before I picked up my dd. I had about a 30-40 minute drive before we were home, so if I pumped...

    Re: Refusing bottle after 7 months?!

    Could he be teething? I had a friend who had this issue, not sure what age it started. Her son never really got back on track (hate to tell you). She ended up using her pumped milk in his food at...

    Re: SAD and SCARED!!

    All I can say is that most of the time, kids figure it out. My DD is/ was the same way for me, but at daycare, they could put her to sleep without nursing (obviously) no problem. I think kids know...
  17. Re: giving baby more BM in bottle than can pump?

    Another idea that I did and got from my local leader was to make differing amounts. My dd got a smaller bottle in the morning like 4 oz., then a bigger bottle for her 2nd like 5-5 1/2 oz. and then...

    Re: Falls Asleep while Nursing, No Bottle

    I agree with the others and wanted to suggest that if you can't have your DC provider practice naptime, then try at least to practice the bottle once a day and have your husband or someone else give...

    Re: back to work worries

    Maybe I can help a little. My dd was in daycare from 9 weeks on. I teach, so she was off the summer months (10months-12months) and then back to daycare at 13 months.

    First, do what is best for...

    Re: Homemade babyfood

    Hi.

    I made most of my DD's food and really didn't use EBM to thin it out unless I was giving a cereal type of thing. My dd loved starting on bananas, in fact that is all she would eat for awhile....
  21. Re: Need help with establishing work routine...

    I forgot to add, a bottle with my husband in the morning that was 3-4 oz. before the whole daycare bottle scenario. DD got 4 bottles a day while away from me. I nursed her right before I left for...
  22. Re: Need help with establishing work routine...

    HI.

    I agree with everyone by starting with smaller amounts in the bottles. What happens at daycare is, if you child doesn't take the full amount in the bottle, then they dump the rest unless the...

    Re: being told I can't pump

    That is so absurd! I am furious for you and just would want to cry if I were you. It is hard enough to go back to work, but when your employer makes it even harder!

    I agree, I think your boss...
  24. Re: When did your baby begin to sleep through night?

    My DD is 20 months and I am 3 months pregnant. DD still gets up at least once a night, she has been doing 1x a night pretty regularly since maybe 10-11 months, but we have our weeks where she gets...

    Re: Night time feedings

    How old is your daughter? Is she now just becoming aware of her surroundings and is more interested in that than nursing during the day? If that is the case, make where you nurse her during the day...
