    I didn't wake DD and I never had a...

    Re: 7 week old not sleeping, please help!

    Have you tried a bath and a swaddle before nap time? My daughter loved swaddling. It was what finally got her to take naps in her crib instead of on me!

    Re: How much longer...ready to wean

    Hi Molly:

    DD must have read my mind. We haven't nursed since Friday. On Saturday morning, she asked and I put her to my breast, but then she started crying "no boo boo". She hasn't asked since.

    Re: 1 yr old - SLOW growth - advice??

    Re: High needs and Breastfeeding

    I never knew "high needs" to relate to a feeding schedule. I was told and came to expect DD would feed 8-12 X per day for the first few months.

    Re: am I eating enough?

    I found in the first few months after DD was born I didn't have much of an appetite. Plus--I was so busy nursing that I rarely found time to eat. To counter this, I'd set-up a healthy snack station...
