    Re: New Here

    I would think if you continued to pump the same amount of time or a couple min longer as he gets older you should do great, b/c he could start taking a jar of baby food at 6 mo plus the...

  7. Re: So Mad!!!! Pl Help Me Think Straight...

    Oh and one other thing that has helped dd is to take a stool softener myself. Just seems to soften his play-dough poo if YKWIM.
  8. Re: So Mad!!!! Pl Help Me Think Straight...

    I will be following your thread b/c your dd's poop and feed schedule...
  9. Weaning 8 mo old and need formula tips

    On baby number 4 I just knew I would nurse until his 1st birthday, and I still may, but only time will tell. However, I am ready to start cutting a few feedings out and using formula or milk.

    Re: constipation and solids

    You could try prunes mixed in with what you give him or even waterted down prune juice in a bottle. The main thing is to incorporate liquid through out the day through extra bfing or diluted juice.

    Like the pp, what always worked for me was to break the suction and (by doctor's advice) poke the inside of their cheek just firm enough to make it unpleasent and firmly say "no".

    Re: Tanning?

    All I can say is that I got the ok from my doctor, and so I did. I never had a problem. I just kept my nipples covered and never let them touch the bed.
  18. Re: The return of Stupid Lefty (silly)

    I had a cousin that quit producing milk completely on her left side and only had the right side to nurse on. She wore a "dummy" on the left in her bra, but I never asked her what she did at the...

    There are tons of creams that they recommended for your nipples (that are anti-fungal) when you have thrush, so I would assume that most of the common athletes foot creams are safe for your feet as...

    You don't think it's thrush do you? Any shooting pains in breast or white patches in DD mouth? Sometimes, there are hardly any symptoms, sometimes, there are a slew.

    Re: Snack ideas

    I'll be watching this post for ideas too!

    Maybe you could send cut up fruit or veggies and one of those mesh net food holders to put them in.
  24. Re: When did you (or did you) stop offering only one new food at a time?

    Any food he's had can be mixed with other new foods. (Like if DD has had bananas then you can try bananas & peaches.) If allergies don't run anywhere in your family then it's not that big of deal,...
