  1. Re: Screaming when I try to feed her...

    She doesn't even go on! As soon as I put her into that nursing position, she starts to freak out. Getting my nipple in her mouth is impossible at that point, so I calm her down, we play and I try...
  2. Screaming when I try to feed her...

    My daughter just turned 7 months and we've had a great breastfeeding relationship until now. No problem. Nothing. I was so happy about it.

    Anyway, she recently got sick, had an ear infection,...
  3. 2 questions regarding latch and length

    I nursed my first child for over a year and thought I knew everything about breastfeeding, and then my second child comes along..... :lol

    Anyway, two questions:

    1) When my daughter (16 days...
  4. Re: Breast and baby on different schedule, what should I do?

    As long as you nurse baby when he wants for as long as he wants, your body will adjust accordingly and make exactly the amount of milk the little one needs! Just follow his lead.

    Congrats on...

    Re: How long?

    My little guy spit up after pretty much every nursing session until he was about 6 or 7 months old. After that it was once or twice a day. He would still on occasion spit up at 12 months. Rare but...

    Re: How many bowel movements?

    Just FYI for anyone interested...we switched from reg whole milk to rice milk and he's back to only a couple dirty diapers a day. Seems to me, the whole milk (either the milk protein, but I think...

    Re: Reaction to Milk?

    My guess is that it probably a Lactose intollerance, since he can have yoghurt in small quantities, and cheese in small quantities. I just think the 16-20 oz of milk he was having daily was...

    Re: Reaction to Milk?

    Thanks MamaEve. I will look into the fish oils.

    He's been on the Rice milk now for about a day and a half, and the rash looks better than it has in 3 weeks, so I'm hopeful that we have found the...

    Re: Reaction to Milk?

    If I switch to Rice milk, is there any particular vitamin/nutrient etc that I should make sure he gets elsewhere? (My biggest concern I think is the "fat" that he needs to get from whole milk, what...

    How many bowel movements?

    My son (almost 14 months) has been on cow's milk now for just over a month, and hasn't nursed in about 3 weeks.

    How many bowel movements a day is normal at this age? He used to have two, one...

    Re: Sleeping Longer at Night?

    Babies just do it when they are ready. My 13 month old didn't start sleeping longer stretches until he was almost a year. (not to discourage you....)

    He went through a brief phase at around 6...

    Re: nursing before or after solids?

    At that age, the solids are just for fun, so definitely nurse first. We did the same as the above, nursed then waited a bit then fed solids. (Sometimes I nursed again after the solids too)

    As your...

    Re: dried, frozen or canned?

    I think fresh is probably the most healthy, but I give my son canned because they are softer. (He can't chew the frozen or fresh ones with no molars). I think as long as you don't give them canned...

    Re: too much cow's milk

    I've read that toddlers should drink no more than 16-24 ounces of milk a day (depending on their size) as it inhibits the absorption of iron, and also may make them "full" so they don't eat other...

    Re: Wean the "least important feed"

    I too dropped the mid day ones first. The middle of the night one was actually the last to go in our case, but for several weeks, he'd nurse in the morning and then go all day (about 8 hours) before...

    Re: Reaction to Milk?

    Milk is the only thing that makes sense. Before I weaned him, he was eating everything. Kiwi, crackers, bread, peanut butter, most fruits...but now he has these crazy rashes (they look like a burn...
  18. Re: I just read that at 6mo that baby should me more awake...

    At 6 months, my son was taking probably 3-4 naps a day (30-45 minutes). I'd try to get him to sleep longer, but no luck. I'd try to get him to stay awake longer and he'd just get cranky. He just...

    Reaction to Milk?

    I have been dealing with an on again off again diaper rash on my son, and I can't seem to isolate the problem.

    Re: Reaction time?

    Well, he's been pooping much more frequently than usual (used to be one in the morning and one in the afternoon, now it's more like 5-6 times in 24 hours).

    We've eliminated whole wheat, and his...

    Reaction time?

    I have been fighting a nasty diaper rash on my little guy, and the last couple days I kept a food diary for him. It originally started with a violent, soppy wet poop after blueberries, so we've...

    Re: Finger foods for 8 1/2 month old?

    The Gerber puffs are great, they dissolve pretty easily.

    My son's first finger foods were cheese cubes (very small little ones) and soft apple pieces (I'd just cut the apple up into small cubes,...

    Fruit causing diaper rash?

    My son (13 months) is on his third really bad diaper rash in only 6 weeks. The first two we combatted with zinc oxide ointment and they seemed to get better, but this one is not healing as quickly....
  25. Re: Baby not drinking much whole milk?!

    I started trying to wean my son in early December and he refused to take the whole milk as well. I just kept trying it again every few days, and if he didn't want it, I didn't try to force it. I...
