    Re: your choice of blenders for baby food

    I've used:

    - Kidco Food Mill - Good for on-the go. Didn't work for peas or green beans, the skins got stuck.
    - Cuisinart Mini Food-Prep - worked okay. Stuff stuck to the sides and was hard to...

    it's best to give bm first if you ebf. cereal has little nutritional value, so we also opted for veggies first. when we do give her cereal, it's usually either rice cereal mixed in to thicken...

    Re: Does it get better?

    For me, it got better with both of my dd's only when we stopped co-sleeping. I think that co-sleeping was great with a newborn, when there was no consistent daytime/nighttime schedule. My 1st dd...

    Re: dwindling freezer supplies

    My 1st DD drank her bottles like a champ, never a drop left, so I did 3/4 EBM w/ 1/4 formula to start, then 1/2 and 1/2, then 1/4 and 3/4, then 100% formula. Be sure to not just add a scoop of...

    Re: Pumping-like a short straw...

    I think it's a little early to be judging what your output will be. I started pumping when dd was a few days old, only because my milk came in with a vengance and dd couldn't latch on. I ended up...

    "Fibers" in Poop after solids

    DD had little fibers in her poop yesterday. It looked like little 1/4 cm black threads. She had carrots, cereal and bannanas yesterday. It was the first time she'd had bannanas. Is this normal?

    Re: how to pump inbetween nursing sessions

    Pump about 45 min after your morning session. Your milk will be completely replaced within 45 min to 1 hr, so baby should have plenty to eat.

    Re: Won't Take Bottle!

    I found that the Avent nipples were very long and hard. Neither of my dd's would use them. A lot of moms are happy with the Playtex Premium Nurser. I also had success with the Dr. Browns bottles...

  21. Re: May have to stop bf! Vaeh's not gaining much weight...

    It sounds like dd is just below the low end of normal on weight gain. Infants gain 5-7 lbs per week with girls being at the lower end. Supplementing may only compound the issue if you want to...
