Sleeping through the night

My LO just turned 7 months old and usually gets up once per night to feed. She will however toss and turn (she’s teething) so we’ll give her back the pacifier if she didn’t find it and sometime we have to hold her for a few minutes just to comfort and she’ll go back to bed. Some nights she will sleep from 8-6 without waking up for a bottle. What’s the best way of keeping it like that? More nigh... More

Sleep issues

Our daughter just turned 6 months and we started her on baby food. She hasn’t taken to it too much still just trying little bit at a time however we do sometimes put baby cereal in her bedtime bottle and she seemed to have no issues. Ever since she’s started having baby food (about 2 ounces a day) her nighttime sleep has been awful. She’ll have an ounce of baby food around 5-6 and then she’ll ... More

Rash near mouth

Is there anything I can or should put on this? It doesn’t seem to be bothering her but she’s had for the last 3 maybe 4 days and it hasn’t gotten and better or worse. She is teething so her hands and pacifier are in her mouth all day

Hair troubles

About 3 months ago I stopped breast feeding and ever since my hair has become extremely knotty and which leads to ALOT of hair loss. My hair isn’t color treated and I just recently cut 5 inches in hopes that would help. Anyone else have the same issue and if so anything help?

Bedtime bottle

My LO had a 5 ounce bottle at 630. I want to put her down for the night at 830 should I give her another 5 ounce bottle or is that too much for a 4 month old?

Weening off pacifier

How did you get your baby to not want/need their pacifier? Our child is almost 4 months old and sometimes, when putting her down to sleep, we think she’s out. However, after 15-30 minutes, she starts to fuss because she’s looking for her pacifier.

How much formula?

My LO is 3 1/2 months old. How much formula were you feeding your LOs at this age? She gets about 4 1/2-5 ounces about 6 times a day. Is that average?

Showering with baby

So my LO is 3 months old and doesnt like bathtime. I was considering bringing her in the shower with me. What are people thoughts? Too early? What are some good practices when showering with babies?

Naptime

So my 3 month old usually sleeps 7-10 hours a night. How many naps should she take and how long? She’s usually up from night sleep at 7-730am and doesn’t go for last bottle until 730-8pm and is asleep around 830-930pm.

Crying it out

So some days my baby (3 months) CONSTANTLY wants to be held the entire day (even during naps)!! We try and let her cry it out for a little bit however after 2-3 minutes she’s hysterical and starts chocking on her saliva. I mean she’s been fed and changed. What do we do since we can’t hold her all day and get stuff done.

Exclusively pumping

I have been EP for 11 weeks. My supply has started to diminish (12oz to 2-3oz a session). It’s getting very discouraging and so time consuming to produce so little so I decided to stop (that was 36 hours ago). However, I think I want to start again and give it another chance or atleast until my freezer stash runs out, which should be a week. I am wondering if what I just pumped is colostrum o... More

Keeping baby entertained

Looking for some ideas to keep two month old entertained during the day.

Is my baby getting enough milk?

By all means I am not complaining or anything but my 2 month old sleeps a good 6-8 hours a night. Usually goes down around 9pm and up anywhere from 4-5am. She only feeds 5 times a day and her bottles are only 4 oz. She’s gaining weight and isn’t fussing during the day for food. Do you think she’s getting enough or should I up her bottles or wake her for feedings whether during the day or night?
