  1. Re: My 13-month-old hates solids. Need help with a picky eater!

    I'd concentrate on finding a protein that he likes, since I imagine you are trying to have solids be the majority of his diet. What have you tried besides tempeh? DS is crazy for veggie burgers.
  2. Re: Yet another "ped pushing foods at 6 months" thread

    But it still has more iron than most other food, so if it is a choice between rice cereal and other food, rice cereal is better in terms of iron. You have to start foods sometime, and rice cereal has...
  3. how do i get my LO to eat off of dishes without throwing them?

    DS is starting a new daycare after the holidays. His old daycare didn't expect him to eat off of a plate at his age (he'll be 13 months when he starts the new place), so we didn't. His old daycare...

    Great Eater does a 180 at 12 mos?

    My son has been wonderful, pretty much from day one. Everyone comments on what a great temperament he has.

    He was a GREAT EATER when we started solids at 6 mos. Ate everything. Now, right at 12...

    Re: Please Help! Ouch!!!

    K, I bought an ace bandage and wrapped it around my boobs last night when I went to sleep and that seems to have helped.

    I can't pump as often as I normally would because the test administrators...

    Re: Disturbing reality check.......

    It's not like we let him go hungry. When he likes to eat is how we set the schedule. He gets hungry every afternoon between 4 and 5, so our schedule includes a 4:00 feeding. If he was getting...

    OK, slow down.

    First, I did NOT say that anyone else should be doing the Ferber method. The original post asked if people's babies were sleeping through the night in their own cribs and how...

    Re: Disturbing reality check.......

    DS (almost 8 mos) sleeps in his own crib from 8:00 to 7:00 without getting up.

    We did the Ferber method. This is more than CIO, especially if you have an LO that does night feedings. DS wasn't...

    Re: help with starting solid foods

    I started letting DS play with food around 5 1/2 months, but not actually having meal times or anything. He didn't eat any of it.

    We tried to do baby led solids, but my day care provider wasn't...

    Re: Starting a new job and need to pump

    I would expect a large law firm to be reasonably accommodating. I would probably talk to HR on the first day, because they may already have a policy of which your particular boss may be unaware.

    Re: Self-defense!

    I have this sort of problem with my day care provider, who is my aunt. She supports BFing, but wanted to add rice cereal at 2 months and mentioned it every time I picked up DS. I was more...
  13. Re: Help with the end-result of breast feeding

    Put them in the sun. It sounds weird, but I'll swear by it. As long as your baby is exclusively BF, the stains will come out if you just put them in direct sunlight for a few hours or so.

    Re: Pulling head back

    Your LO is also getting to a more distractable age. DS did this starting around then. See if she focuses more if you go into a quiet, dimly lit room, or throw a blanket over you while she is...

    Re: Advice on Birth Control Methods While BF

    I can't stand condoms, the regular hormonal BC was bad for my milk supply and the estrogen-free birth control didn't work because it is not strong enough, so we are using spermicidal inserts. But...

    Re: Traveling w/o LO. What to do?

    No, it is not CA; most states have a 3 day bar exam. I am taking the Ohio bar.

    No, there is no walking back to the hotel. We only get an hour for lunch and it takes me at least 30 minutes to...

    Re: Traveling w/o LO. What to do?

    I looked at this, but they want me to find a donee, get an agreement signed, get bloodwork done, etc., etc.

    As I mentioned, I have a baby and I am studying for the bar exam. I don't have that...
  18. Re: Running out of ideas... Please give me advice!!

    Have you considered that there may be an overproduction problem? Maybe his is done after 8 minutes. I'd recommend trying block feeding for a week or so to see if that makes it better.
