    Question on co-sleeping: how do people deal with the startle reflex while sleeping? i've talked to other moms and they don't know what i'm talking about. our only answer so far has been swaddling....
  4. Re: Weaning off nipple shield... Need some reassurance.

    I used a nipple shield with my little girl for about a month or so. It all seems a blur. I was very concerned that we would never get to the point that she didn't want/need it. I wasn't even using...

    Re: Daytime drama

    Thanks spygirl! Being outside definitely breaks up the fuss. Unfortunately, it's ridiculously hot and humid out these days. We take short walks as much as we can. I bet you're enjoying that dry...

  12. Re: Moving/Driving Cross Country with a 2 month old.

    Yes, plan for it taking much longer. We have a 6 week old girl and at 4 weeks we took her on an 4.5 hr drive that took six. After a couple shorter drives that same afternoon, she was beyond done. ...

  15. Re: how soon after each feed should i pump?
