Anyone experience their baby acting hyper active during or after an early (1 am-5am) feeding? My partner & I just had twins (3 months old) and the only way to calm one of them is breast feeding her after her feed. SN: I do offer extra breast milk in her bottle but she doesn’t take and cries for her moms teet (milk boob). Since I am back at work, Early mornings is my only shift to help my p... More
My five week old baby only sleeps on my chest. He’s still eating every 2-3 hours so he naps on my chest in between feedings all day and night. Loves tummy time though and has even fallen asleep on his stomach (I didn’t leave his side, nobody panic). I love the snuggles and how peaceful he is, but would also like to be able to get up and eat... or use the bathroom or change a load of laundry! We... More
Newborn son was just tested for this disease and it came back with him having 2 markers. The doctor then said could be false positive and needed to get blood work done. Now waiting for results. Has anybody dealt with this before or currently? What should I expect or be doing as I wait.
Our LO will be 12 weeks on Friday and for the last few days he has begun to really really fight sleep for naps and bed time. We follow a feed, wake, sleep schedule. Lately when it is time for sleep he will start winding down and seem to come close to falling asleep but right when he is about to surrender to sleep he starts fighting it (kicking, fussing, arms) and then it just goes downhill from...

I have an 18 month old and I need help teaching him to be nice and gentle with his new brother. Little brother is only a week old. Today big brother threw his sippy cup at little brothers head. Thank goodness he is ok, but I really want to avoid anything like this in the future. Please help!!
Hi, Parents! I’m still pretty new on here but really do appreciate that I’ve only seen positive discourse between parents unlike what’s unfortunately seen on other platforms. A couple of weeks ago my son slept 5.5 hours one night and then...that was over 🤦🏻♀️ It seems he’s developed colic so the schedule I was trying to introduce during the day has been temporarily put on hold. Any suggest... More
Any advice would be more than welcome
Our doctor said that our son should be eating 24 ounces in a day. He is almost 2 months and is eating around 34 ounces! We try and hold off feeding him, but he is always hungry!! I feel like he eats too much, but I read it’s almost impossible to overfeed a baby and if he wants it give it to him. Anyone else have this experience?
Anyone else have a newborn that for some reason isn’t sleeping well during the day? This is a more recent phenomenon. She’s about 5 weeks. She isn’t super fussy during these times, has had enough to eat, is just...awake. She had some small stretches of sleep this morning, but has been awake all mid-morning to afternoon and this isn’t the first time. Help!
My 1 month old hasn’t pooped in almost 2 days now. (breastfed) She’s in pain 😞 makes grunting sounds when attempts to push. She has pooped everyday for the first month and this is the first time she cannot go (she’s 6 weeks tomorrow). This is the third time within this week it is happening. Each time it finally does come out it’s so thick and sticky like silly putty/peanut butter. We did a Qti... More
My daughters just over a month old and still screams bloody murder when she’s in the car seat. Red face screaming to where I have to blow in her face to get her to breath and she is just SO mad and won’t stop. Then she puts herself to sleep after because she’s exhausted from screaming. Does anyone else have this problem? Or know why it may be happening? I feel so bad and it breaks my heart to ... More
My baby is almost 4 weeks old and since 1 week old she would sometimes laugh out loud in her sleep. This usually only happens after I finish feeding her and she’s nodding off (fighting her sleep) into sleep. What does this mean? and is this something normal that happens ?
Since my son was a newborn I always held him and let him fall asleep on me until he was about 10 months old I started putting him in his crib for naps and bedtime. He had started to fight me for sleep if it was on me. Turns out he likes his own space now. Wondering if it is because I over cuddled him and if he will ever want to cuddle with me again. He is sick right now too and I tried to get h... More
