Re: Crawling!

Mine is crawling, but not very well. She does great for about the length of one room, then runs out of steam. I'm pretty much baby proofed, or so I think, until she does something like pull the door...

Re: Pumping

I hate pumping so much that after 7 months, I find myself skipping a few and my milk is drying up. I made it my goal to pump extra today and try to reverse the cycle. I have a freezer full, and have...

Re: standing?

My little one started standing with support at about 4 months, and pulling herself to standing at about five. She just started crawling at 7.5 months, and isn't very good at it. She is obsessed with...

Re: handling massive bad habit

I'm sort of the in the same boat. My hubby left for Afgahnistan and I'm still nursing. She's becoming more and more dependent on nursing. Sometimes she refuses the bottle and keeps looking for the...

Re: One thing you would change

She was two weeks late, and I had to be induced due to that. I wanted so bad to not have an epidural. After TWO DAYS of real contractions, and not an ounce of sleep due to 5 minute apart contractions...

Re: Baby Sounds

Mine says all kinds of nonsense. It does often sound like "hi" and even "daaaaa deeeee" but I know she's not actually saying anything. I've noticed she will sometimes mock my pitch and number of...

Re: Punchy baby.

My LO punches my boob. I think it's some sort of frustration with a low milk flow or slow let down. She doesn't do it when things are flowing well.

Re: Decreasing BM for cereal and baby food?

The problem is that my daughter will eat anything we give her. I'm absolutely certain we could give her a 10 ounce bottle and she'd down it and then throw up massively.

The first foods have VERY...

Decreasing BM for cereal and baby food?

Do we keep giving the same amount of breastmilk, or what if I give 60 calories worth of baby food, do I need to decrease BM by 3 ounces (20 calories and ounce?).

I don't know what I'm doing, and...

Re: Bottles and sterilizing

We sterilized EVERY use for the first two months due to stupid thrush. Now we wash in the sink, and sterilize only about every three weeks. I don't want to raise her with no exposure to germies.

Re: What's baby eating? How's it going?

Still mostly BFing, one formula bottle before bed, and occasional tastes of food. We let her chew on carrots for her teething, but she doesn't ingest any. Loves it though! We gave her a piece of...

Re: Maternal diet for pregnant women

The best thing is to take prenatal vitamin. This is VERY important. Many studies show a lack of Folic Acid can cause many birth defects.

Re: Core Tips

I do a "boat" pose every morning on the side of my bed after my shower. It has really helped. Also, I have been doing traditional sit-ups. We have a "Captain's chair" and I do leg raises with that....

Re: Baby Food?

I was just reading our handbook, and it basically just says that all means are served in accordance with the USDA, so somewhere the USDA must have recommended the solids and 8 months thing. Argh.

Re: Baby Food?

OK, well, I feel kinda stupid. I guess I was thinking she'd go mainly to food. I'm a FTM, and I have done research, but info is spotty. We have a doctor's appointment next week, and I was planning on...
