My daughter is barely taking a bottle since she started crawling. I think she just wants to be on the move vs sitting and drinking. Any tips on how to get her to drink already?
My son was sleeping for 12 hours a night from 5-7 months, but then he got the flu and it’s been a little over a month now of sleep problems. When he had the flu, he was waking every two hours for about 5 days. Now he is down to 1-2 wakes per night, and occasionally will sleep through the night. But it’s so erratic. Any tips on how to get my guy back on schedule??
Teething question: My son popped out the bottom front two teeth with no problems, but the top front two are taking their time. He’s in pain and very fussy. But my real problem is he’s got very loose BMs. He blows out at least twice every day for the past almost week. I’ve always heard at my daycare that I work at that loose stools is normal for teething. But a google search said that’s not true. Has anyone’s child had diarrhea from teething? Any remedies to help thicken the poop or keep him from blowing out and messing up all of his clothes and stuff around him?
Any advice on weaning when prone to plugged ducts? I had plugged ducts in one of my breasts every other day for two and a half months starting when my son was 5 months. It was hell! I did showers, massage, pumping, cabbage leaves, herbal teas, lecithin etc. What finally helped me was changing my diet (which was already healthy) drastically. I cut all meat, dairy, processed foods, any saturated fats, coffee and basically just ate steamed veggies, legumes and beans and after about 5 days I didn’t have anymore plugged ducts. The following two months I only had two which was heaven in comparis... More
How to Wean from Breast? I breastfeed as well as bottle-feed. I’ll be enrolling my baby in daycare soon. The problem is she isn’t broken from the breast, yet. Sometimes it is the only thing that calms her. How did you wean your child? I’m anxious, knowing that if she cries nonstop away from home she may be mistreated by daycare teachers.
Every once in a while, my daughter will be completely not interested in nursing but when I give her a bottle with breast milk in it, she kills it. I hand express and have milk coming out but she just isn’t interested. I do pump (but don’t enjoy it) and I know she needs to be sucking from me most of the time to keep my supply (I’ve had supply issues). Any advice?
My 6m baby keeps straining like she wants to poop but i think shes having fun with it. It happens when shes getting so excited or boring sometimes while shes eating solids. I have to do stuffs to distract het otherwise it makes her coughing and vomit. Anybody on the same pages, is it normal?
My son has this random red splotch on his face. I don't know what it's from and he woke up with it this morning. usually a little red spots that he wakes up with go away because it's how he slept, but it's been a few hours and this one has not. I can't get it off with water or soap, but it doesn't seem to bother him. does anyone have an idea on what it might be?
Hey parents, so my son is 11 months old and is attending daycare 🤨, he picked up diarrhea I’m guessing last Friday because he had his first movement sat morning around 11am. The rest of Saturday was horrible! I lost count of how many he had that day but I do know he went through 4 outfits. His poor booty was as red as a strawberry and was very painful because he would start screaming bloody murder as soon as I laid him on the changing table😢. Sunday was better. He only had about two and then I took him to school Monday and he only had two bm’s all day. His booty was looking a lot better and... More
My 20 month old HATES having her diaper changed. She had urinary issues that required frequent catheterization. She has surgery to correct the issue in October and ever since changing diapers has become a full on battle. Recently, it’s become almost impossible to change a poopy diaper. We are looking at putting her in school for socialization but they will not take her like this. Any suggestions will help.
My daughter is 4 weeks old and is breastfed. We had some difficulty in the beginning with staying latched and staying awake long enough to get enough food. For the last 2 weeks, though, she’s been doing great. But now, for the past 3-4 days, whenever she latches, she eats for maybe 5 minutes and then begins to squirm around, even thrash until she comes off. It’s really difficult to get her back on when she’s thrashing, so she hasn’t been getting full meals. I don’t know what to do. It’s getting to the point where I want to quit breastfeeding. Any reason why she may being doing this or t... More
My baby has just started pulling to stand and I cannot get him to nap anymore! I put him down drowsy like I have always done but now he pops up when I lay him down. Then he stands and cries in his crib and will not settle. I try to pat his mattress to get him to come off the bars but no luck and he screams even more when I place him back down. Any advice for getting naps back?
Anyone else's baby seem to not care for reading? Literally as soon as I have a book in my hands to try to read to him, he's already trying to grab it away from me and play with it (put it in his mouth, bang it on the floor, etc.) I literally cannot get through a single book with him. He has zero interest in me trying to point things out to him on the pages, he'll be way more interested in just looking at me talking. His older brother was completely different, since 3-4 months he'd be fine and dandy on my lap going through our whole library of books in one go and was pointing... More
