My 6mo had his first tooth erupt on June 11. The second one came soon after. He now has both sticking out and slowly growing. During the eruption stage he was cranky in the day and sometimes waking more often at night. But now that the teeth have erupted, he’s happy in the day with his teethers and wash cloths, but he is waking literally every hour at night. He doesn’t want to feed - not even c... More
My baby will be 6 mos soon & we’re preparing for his solid food. Any recommended items like feeder, food storage, spoons, plates / bowls, etc? There’s so many products (& brands) out there that we don’t know where to start. Also if you know any websites, social media groups or books that’s all about baby solid food. Thank you!
I gave birth 6 months ago via C-section and I’m exclusively breastfeeding and haven’t gotten my period back. For like a month now, I noticed that I’m again unusually more thirsty, whether I’m breastfeeding at the moment or not, & I’m getting hungry more often like I haven’t eaten anything all day. I feel little flutters in my belly and had 2 or 3 separate occasions of stomach cramps 1 or 2... More
My son is one and a half and is still drinking out of a bottle. Granted, it's only at night and before his daytime nap. Other than those times, he drinks solely out of a 360 cup. I tried getting him off bottles at 1 and sent him to bed with a sippy, but omg that was the worst bedtime fiasco I ever experienced and my resolve lasted maybe an hour before I caved and gave him his bottle. I am r... More
Our lactation consultant just diagnosed my 7 week old with lip and tongue tie. He has been on the bottle since first 3 days of life (breast milk only). He has never breastfed successfully due to latch issues. We have the option of either taking the laser route or the scissor route. Does anybody have personal experience/recommendation of one over the other? How was the recovery?
My youngest is now 12 months. About 5 weeks ago, I stopped breast feeding. About a week later, I got my period. Symptoms were pretty crazy, migraines, cramps, pain, and what seemed like a low grade fever. Fast forward 2 weeks, and I’m ovulating. Super painful, and once again, what seems like a low fever. Lasts a day then gone. Now 2 weeks later, I’m getting my period again. Some minor headaches... More

Honest answers...when did you wean?? My baby is 10.5 months and I feel like I’m ready some days and not others. She stopped breastfeeding and only drinks pumped milk from bottles so she’s been ready for awhile now;). She tolerates formula fine. I just have a hard time knowing “when.” Part of it is the tremendous pressure I feel from doctors and lactation consultants to go for “at least a year... More
Just recently my LO suddenly stopped taking the bottle and only drinks milk directly from the source. She had bottles 3-4x a week since week 2 so I'm not sure what changed but she outright refuses all bottles now. I've tried giving her different bottles and even different flow nipples but she immediately rejects them before even trying them out. Even tried leaving the apt and having dif... More
I have an almost 3 month old who will not sleep earlier than 9:30pm. I start his bedtime routine at 7pm. He is usually wanting to feed for this whole time. Sometimes he won’t settle till 10:40 or later. He might sometimes sleep for a five and hour stretch. Sometimes only 3 and will sleep for 1.5 to 2 hours again. Any suggestions on how to get him to sleep earlier?
My 2mo absolutely despises tummy time! I’m trying to do it 3x a day for just 10min and even that is a struggle. We’ve tried it in various places—crib, play mat, laying on me, changing table— doesn’t make a difference. We’ve incorporated toys, music...thoughts on things to do to make this easier? It’s a struggle for a lot of little ones I’ve heard. I’m told she should be up to an hour of tu... More
My baby is 9 months old (so we are well-adjusted to breastfeeding) and lately, nursing her has been painful due to something causing the top part of my nipples to crack. My baby only has teeth on the bottom right now so I have no idea what could be doing this. Any ideas?! It hurts so bad!
