Re: Some questions?
Yes. And as Phi said, this is one area where many docs are not shy about overstepping their knowledge base. It would be fine if the average doc did what mine did, when I was have trouble nursing: say "I don't know how to help you, so I will refer you to a specialist," i.e. a lactation consultant!

Regarding solids, DS has gotten really interested in watching us eat for the last month. He gets especially excited when I am eating apples. Sometimes I have let him lick the apple just to get a small taste of the juice. He likes doing this....is it wrong to do this? He really just sticks out his tongue and touches the apple and then gets all giggly and excited.
