    Re: Going straight from breast to sippy cup

    You could try a straw cup. We started DD on the Gerber Soft Straw cup at about 5 months and she picked it up right away. It is spill proof so it doesn't allow here to suck up more than she can...

    Re: Starting water when starting solids

    We give 8 month old DD sips of water with her solids (I would say less that a half an ounce.) We introduced her to a cup around 6 months that had breastmilk in it. We use the Gerber spill proof...

    Re: My dd only nurses for 5mins

    You are doing great! My DD has never nursed for more than 10 minutes in her whole 8 months! She is O/C in height and 95% in weight! I have a fast let down and she can't be bothered with nursing...

    Re: Mastitis Help

    Glad that you are feeling better! Don't dump! Make sure to keep your infected side flowing! Even if you have to pump.

    I feel like a dairy cow sometimes too!

    Re: 7 month old not nursing enough

    I know exactly what you are talking about. DD is the same way and she is 8 months old. It took me awhile to relax and to trust that she was getting what she needed. I don't think that 5 hours is a...

    Re: when to introduce cherios?

    If she is ready for them, go ahead. However, Cheerios contain wheat so hold of if there is a family history of allergies. (I think that kellymom.com has a "when to offer wheat" guideline.) We are...

    Re: Nursing frequently at night

    I don't think that there is a "normal." My 8 month dd goes to bed at 7pm. Somenights she wakes to eat at 12am, 2am, 4am and then is up at 7am. Sometimes she will just do a 2 and 4 and then there...

    Re: Could it be Teething?

    It certainly could be teething or it could just be a phase. We went through something similar when my DD was around 6 months. Before things got crazy, she would nurse around 6pm, fall asleep and...

    My 7.5 month old does similar things. I have chalked it up to distraction and her being a busy body! Sometimes, I think that she is going to break her neck trying to see what DH is doing in the...
