Hi everyone. I just wanted to know how you transitioned your 8 month old to a sippy cup? Right now I’m trying the munchkin gentle transition sippy cup, but my little guy hates the texture. Help!
I’m 5 days post c-section and seriously struggling. My baby is a great eater and my milk came in on day 2 so I should feel incredibly lucky, however, she has a very painful latch so I need to use a nipple shield, which is annoying, I struggle to find comfortable breastfeeding positions that don’t hurt my incision and I’m just. So. Tired. I am lucky enough to have help from my husband and family... More
I work at home (Data Analyst) which is great because I can easily drop the child off or pick up from daycare, doctor appointments, emergencies, etc. This is our first child (expecting mid/late June) and I know there’s a ton I don’t know. Working at home I’ve become accustomed to doing the laundry, cleaning, cooking, and errands during my workday. Just little things in between meetings and what ... More
I have an 8 month old boy and i have been told by his pcp to try and start giving him water and maybe on a sippy cup... but he cant even drink without choking even if i try to give him water with a baby spoon... am i the only mom scared..? Is my son the only one who chokes on water? Am I doing something wrong? What did you moms do when giving water for the first time? Need some help....
Hi everyone, I have a 21-months-old toddler, still breastfeeding but does not take breast milk in a bottle or cup (I hear this is common for toddlers) nor as a popsicle. I have some frozen breast milk from pumping on a trip, and would like to use it for her. Before I go through the trouble of baking with breast milk or making other things, I'd love to hear if there's a reasonable chanc... More
I had my first baby via c-section yesterday, and despite everyone saying babies tend to be sleepy in the first 24 hours she cries nonstop and my husband and I are going insane. The nurses and pediatrician tell us she is completely healthy and this is normal but I just can’t believe this will be our new normal. We try swaddling, shushing (all the 5 S’s really!), I feed her constantly, but she ju... More
My daughter just turned one on Monday. She was doing great going to sleep on her own and staying in her own crib. Lately she wakes up crying and sits up. She won’t go back down until I pick her up and take her to bed with me. She is getting her first tooth. I don’t know if it’s just a new thing and is teething related or some stage. Any advice would be welcome
Hi all! I just wanted to share some of my experiences with having a baby. My daughter was born in December and is now 4 months old. She’s a very easygoing baby (which I am forever grateful for!). However, in the short time I’ve been a mom, I have gotten a LOT of advice. Both good and bad. I’ve been told to sleep when the baby sleeps, which is a great idea up to a point. You can’t be expected to... More
Hi! I have a 15 month old girl and she has been given a bottle in her crib to help her fall asleep. I’m trying to get away from that. I’m thinking of trying a new routine like a bath then a bottle and read to her then brush her teeth and put her down but I’m curious as to what everyone else does. I really want to incorporate books because she won’t let me read to her unless she has a bottle
My 8 month old is able to turn on his side, and general advice is to stop putting him in things that restrict movement, such as the Halo sleep sacks that wrap the arms down and close to the body. He still needs the cozy, snug feeling of his Halo to fall asleep though. With his arms free he will. Not. Sleep. What can I use now that he's supposed to transition out of his Halo wrap position bu... More
My daughter is 9 months, she don't have any teeth yet but has been eating Gerber baby food for about 4 months now. I want to start giving her more solid type of food and not just puree but I am nervous. Can anyone give me some recommendations on how to start giving her more solid foods? Thank you in advance for any advice.
For about a month now, my 6 mo. old babygirl is waking up every night about an hour after we put her to sleep for the night in her crib in her own room. She won’t stop crying unless we bring her into our bed (where she’ll then sleep mostly the rest of the night...sometimes waking to breastfeed around 3 am). She takes three great naps in her room during the day everyday and we have a pretty soli... More
I always try to stay super hydrated, but recently I thought, I need to gulp extra water before bed because I don’t wake up and drink water for 7+ hours while I sleep? Therefore, wouldn’t I have low supply in the mornings? But then I remember that night is when we produce the most milk due to some chemical stuff I don’t remember... so then does that chemical stuff basically create more milk pro... More
Our 11 mo old has out of the blue gone from extremely independent and generally a good sleeper to a total crying tyrant at bed time. She has always been a relatively good sleeper and needed almost no sleep training (using the 3/5/7min method she was usually down by the 7 minute bout). Her top two teeth are coming in, and she just dropped to one nap at daycare (she was already 1-a-day at home ... More
My daughter has been bottle fed since she was about 6 weeks old, and lately it seems like she’s struggling with drinking her bottle. she grunts and squirms and acts like she’s choking. We use the Dr. Browns bottles and she hasn’t had a problem with them until lately, we’ve tried feeding her in different positions and nothing seems to work. Any tips?
