  1. Re: '6 Months Old Now, you can do it too!'

    We now use 'cheeky wipes' which are basically terry cotton squares that come in a kit with a tub to keep them in and moist at home and a mini wet bag for out and about. Honestly tho any container...
  2. Re: How many feeds a day does a 9 month old need?

    The PP's have already given lots of advice, so I won't add any... Just wanted to say my nearly 10 month old nurses on demand and feeds at least 8 times a day - that said I don't bother to count. I...

    Re: The dreaded night gas

    I wonder if moving around gets the gas to move along and that's why it's worse at night. Have you tried baby massage and bicycling her legs? I know these are easier in the day than in the middle of...
  4. Re: '6 Months Old Now, you can do it too!'

    We went through a week or so where it felt like my DD hit her head all the time... It got better and thankfully it's rarer now. Lots of chance to confort nurse tho :)

    I wouldn't worry about banana...

    Re: nipple blisters

    The stuff inside mine was very definitely white not clear too and was solid (wasn't sure if it was milk or skin in the end)

    Re: nipple blisters

    A nipple blister is normally white I think?

    I had one this weekend and it hurt to nurse on and milk backed up behind it and I had a hard lump in my breast which hurt more :s

    Unless what you...
  7. Re: 4 mo spits up lots and eats often and naps short...

    I don't have any advice re spit up, but with the napping, is she happy on that amount of sleep? If so I would try to readjust expectations. If she isn't.... My lo would only sleep longer than 1/2...
  8. Re: '6 Months Old Now, you can do it too!'

    I guess stop pumping to improve supply when you feel your supply is ok... I'm not sure there is any hard and fast rule on it!

    (P.S from the last thread; store kirkland peanut butter upside down,...
  9. Re: doctor's visit left me angry and wondering...am I wrong?

    I have a 'friend' who is a health visitor who asked me about my 9 month old and her sleeping habits and was horrified that the feeds every couple of hours still, telling me she doesn't need it......

    Re: Still battling thrush!!! Help

    Have you tried 'breast angels' or a cheaper version would be sticking a couple of silver spoons in your bra, I have a friend who swears these helped sort her recurrent thrush.

    Needs to be actual...
  11. Re: Continuation of weight gain/supply struggle

    This is a really long thread :)

    Natural peanut butter is great and had no sugar in it. I actually try to get hold of Californian peanut butter from Costco as it's better than any British stuff I...
  12. Re: Continuation of weight gain/supply struggle

    Sounds like you are having fun!

    We did eggs at 6 months and was told after not to, but it was fine for us! We did peanut butter at 7 months as I eat a lot of it so figured she's probably had it in...

    Re: blowing bubbles in the milk

    If/when a baby learns to blow raspberries it is quite normal for them to attempt it mid feed.... Is this what you mean? :)

    Re: 4 month old poor weight gain

    Just to add to what PP's have said has he been assessed for tongue tie or lip tie or a weak/disorganized suck? You may need a dentist or speech therapist to take a look but a fellow American would be...

  17. Re: Continuation of weight gain/supply struggle

    Yay for good doctor finally! You could do with finding a way to nurse/pump that lump out :s Could you do it while he sleeps or do you have a sling that you could use in a position that would allow...

    Re: Mirena IUD and breastfeeding

    It might not be the IUD stopping your periods it might be the breastfeeding... Not sure there is any clear cut way to tell! (Unless they return at some point then it was the breastfeeding!)
  19. Re: Continuation of weight gain/supply struggle

    I guess solids will only help if he is interested... But it will happen eventually :)

    I do have 1 friend who has nursed 5 children and her 5th just isn't that bothered by eating and has always...

    Am so glad it improved for you :)
  21. Re: Continuation of weight gain/supply struggle

    Is he dropping on the chart tho? Babies gain less as they grow so while a newborn might put on an ounce a day that wouldn't be the case for the same baby at 6 months. I don't know enough about...
  22. Re: Continuation of weight gain/supply struggle

    A multivitamin shouldn't do any harm so not sure there is a downside of trying it. How much was the weight gain for the week before you stopped supplements, is there much difference?

    His feeds do...

    Re: My 3 month old prefers a bottle.

    How much and how often is milk being given in a bottle, is the teat slow flowing and are bottles being given in a paced breastfeeding friendly manner?

    Smaller bottles given in a paced manner can...
  25. Re: Continuation of weight gain/supply struggle

    Peanut Butter is what my little girls changed into around 5 months... As long as it isn't pellets it should be fine.

    I do wonder if the first day or so he was so used to having a couple of ounces...
