I know this is going to sound terrible, but I have a hard time leaving my LO (still a newborn) with his dad,my fiancé. He isn't as patient as I am with him and gets frustrated so easy and it sucks to see him talk to my baby in a mean tone. I find it hard to let him take the baby somewhere without me or leave him with my in laws to baby sit.. I mean with my family I don't feel bad saying... More
So my two month old use to always fall asleep when she was in the car. She'd only fuss when we stopped at a light. But recently she doesn't really like the car anymore and will scream and cry and works herself up till she's bright red and sweaty and even loses her voice. I've had to pull over and calm her down and put her to sleep if I'm alone and need to go somewhere, or ha... More

She did this last night, usually wakes me up sooner. Are my boobs okay to last that long? At 1 month her weight was in 85/90th percentile
She’s fine putting her in her car seat and even the stroller. Just happy. But once she is placed in the car, she screams all bloody murder! It kills me but I can’t stay trapped home all day. Has anyone else dealt with this?
Did anyone’s baby spit up way more than usual during their first leap? My baby is 5.5weeks old and she’s fussier than ever: screaming, crying, scratching, on the breast all the time but unlatching and screaming at it, falling asleep for 5min to do it all over again, and on top of everything spitting a lot. I’m wondering if the spitting up is part of the fussy period of the leap or if there’s so... More
So, my newborn has a very weird sleep habit. She’s fussy and refuses to go to sleep in her bassinet or on the bed with us at night but sleeps well on daytime. I have to hold her if I want her to sleep or calm down at night but once I put her in the bassinet she’ll cry. But around 7-8 AM in the morning she’ll easily fall asleep for about 3 hours without problem and it will go on until 8-9 at nig... More
Sleep training. Any methods that don’t use “cry it out?” LO is 15 weeks and sleeps 10pm-7am, eats then sleeps again until 10-11am. However last few weeks she hardly goes down for a nap and if so with a fight. Can also tell she’s tired at night and would like to put her down earlier but she wakes up if we try (after nursing her to sleep).
Hi mamas. I’m a FTM and my little boy was always so good about taking a bottle of breast milk in the morning while I slept. My mother would watch him from 5am-8am so I can get some sleep. Then suddenly a week before turning 3 months he STOPPED taking the bottle. He just plays with it and maybe takes 2 sips. I’ve tried different bottles and different nipple flows but nothing is working!! He goes... More
My 9 week old son has it terribly. He is prescribed to omeprazole and zantac 2x a day. We tried similac alimentum and it made him worse, like scary symptoms. We went back to similac pro sensitive for a while without any issues. We saw a pediatric GI doctor on April 20, who gave us samples of elecare formula, and said if we need to start it to try it. About a week ago, he pretty much refused a f... More
Tips on teething for a little one that can’t yet hold a teether herself? She’s 3 mo and I feel/see a bottom tooth coming in. She’s super unhappy and I feel so bad for her since I can’t really give her a teether to chew on. Thoughts on the freezing of breastmilk for pacifier popsicles?
Help! We're headed to the beach soon, and I am having trouble finding a *small* beach hat to help shade our *small* baby. I'm looking on Amazon, searching specifically for NB sizes, but just getting "0-6mo" which are just huge on her. - Looking for something on Amazon - The "size 0-6 mo" hats don't cut it; they're too large. Baby is not preemie, but a preemi... More
Have anyone experienced teething at a young age? My baby just turned 2 months and she's become more irritable and sleeping less and not as consistent as before. She's also rubbing her face a lot and biting on her hands even though she's already been fed or rejects food.
What helped your milk supply? Im exclusively pumping right now for my baby in the nicu and im not getting much. Im eating lots of oatmeal, greens, water, milk, and granola as well as taking upspring fenugreek+blessed thissle supplement. Not really doing much...any other suggestions?
3 week old goes ballistic when pulled off the breast! She is been feeding more often and after she is done eating and is just sucking (and hurting me) I unlatch her and she starts crying, shaking, scratching her face and scratching me. WTH is going on? She only stops when she is back on the breast and this time she loses the deep latch as soon as I put her on and goes on to that shallow and pai... More
