    Re: weight issues

    Hugs to you mama.

    First of all, it sounds like your son has always been on the lower end of the bell curve. Are you and your DH small people? Genetics play into this too, so if you're slender...

    Re: breastfeeding only from one breast

    Yep, think of women with twins! It averages out to one breast per baby ;)

    I had slower let down on one side so my DD always preferred one over the other depending on mood. I was a bit lopsided...

    Re: Doesn't Like Cereal

    We started with sweet potatoes and pear, which are far more yummy than cereal :) When we did oatmeal (around 9 or 10 months as a breakfast food) I Ojust put regular Quaker oats in the food...

    Re: He gets mad at the spoon anymore!

    Cheerios are also a good finger food, and they help to develop the "pincer grasp" They melt really quickly on contact with saliva, so they're pretty safe... just watch him like you would with any...

    Re: When did your child start solids?

    About six months. We started with sweet potatoes, then pears and peaches I think. She was eating them once a day until around 10 months, at which point we stepped it up and added a meal (based on...

    Re: Go with the flow??

    Hi there,

    Babies have tiny stomachs, so they need to eat small meals often. Your daughter sounds like she's doing what is comfortable for her, and as she gets older and her tummy gets bigger she...

    Re: My baby is a beggar and a snatcher!

    OP, it sounds like you have a lot of good advice here!! Trust your instincts and your baby will be just fine.

    I agree with some others though on the cereal. I have read that infant cereals can...

    Re: Pain with Breastfeeding

    Hi there!

    Ouch, that sounds painful! Please don't think you're overreacting! If it's painful or uncomfortable you need to change it.

    Re: Time between feeding

    Hi there!

    Have you tried waking her for a feed right before you go to bed? I coslept with my DD so I would rouse her getting into bed enough for her to want to nurse, and then she'd do her longer...

    Re: 4 month old..amount and often

    Hi there!

    It sounds like you're doing everything right. Babies nurse for many reasons aside from nutrition. Many babies prefer mom over a bottle, and while they can go longer stretches between...

    Re: Two month old trying to wean?

    Re: Two month old trying to wean?

    Hi there,

    First off, hugs to you. The first weeks are such a tough time when you're both new to breastfeeding, and it takes time to get your "style" down pat!

    Re: Cries at the breast

    Do you have a very strong letdown? My DD used to pull off and cry once the letdown started because she was getting choked. I could tell because it would spray everywhere, so keeping a towel handy...

    Re: Should I be worried?

    I would keep watching him as the pp said and make sure he's not going more than 2-3 hours between feedings. Could be that he's not feeling well too. Is he fussy at all when you nurse him? On one...

    You got some good advice here already, but just wanted to add some words of encouragement. The first weeks are the toughest, especially when both of you are new to breastfeeding. Give it some time,...
