My LO is 7 weeks, turning 2 months on Saturday. It’s been a struggle getting things done around the house and having a second to myself as my LO is only comfortable being held or on top of mom or dad. We have tried the swing and longest he will stay without crying is a few minutes unless asleep. I have tried a bouncer chair which he cries as soon as he’s put in. We also have him play on his bab...

My 11 week old won’t sleep more than 50 minutes unless she is lying next to me. I’ve tried everything, different swaddles, putting down awake, putting down drowsy, putting down asleep, rocking, feeding to sleep, giving a bottle, a pacifier, swaddling, not swaddling, spacing out feedings. using a shirt with my smell, bassinet, a warm heating pad- everything. She will not sleep in the crib at nig... More
My 3 year old has always been a mama’s boy, but these past couple months he’s been extra clingy, and now with less than a week before my due date with baby #2, he literally does not want to leave my side. He doesn’t want his dad, or anyone else, but mommy to do anything with him. He only wants mommy to change him, get him his food/drink, put him in his car seat, give him his bath, etc. Of cours...

Here is the situation. We've been struggling with a constipated baby, per the last few posts i've made. We've added probiotics, gas drops, gripe water from time to time. The pediatrician approved prune juice to test so we've been doing one ounce of juice added in two half portions throughout the day. It's been helping - but not without struggles! Poor girl cries and cries a... More
My LO is 3 and half weeks old and we just transitioned him to full formula from being full breast milk since he was born. With breast milk, he pooped almost every single feeding but now with formula he poops maybe once a day. During feedings though he is constantly pushing which frustrates him because nothing comes out. Is this normal? When he does poop it’s not hard. Is this his tummy getting ... More
Newborn has just started to eat every 1 and 1/2 to 2 hours from the start of the feeding and is eating between 2 and 1/2 to 3oz of breast milk. Anything we can do to stretch this out? Is this temporary?
I've written before about our struggle with poops. Our baby is 15 days old and has only pooped on her own twice since bringing her home. I cannot keep up with breastmilk demand so i supplement with formula (1oz breastmilk 1oz formula) and not every feed, maybe three feeds a day or i'd be glued to the breastpump which is unrealistic. So most of her feeds are 100% formula, shown below as ... More
Anyone not feel as bonded to their second baby? I was obsessed and thought she was the cutest baby with my first daughter from the moment she was born (she’s 2 years old now). Since bringing home my second (she’s 2 weeks old) I just don’t feel that same emotion as I did with the first. I am definitely not depressed- I’m otherwise totally fine (a bit overwhelmed having 2 but that’s natural). I ... More

My son starts daycare on the 20th of this month and I’m super nervous! I’m a first time mom and my son will just be turning 8 weeks old when he starts daycare. I’m looking for some tips from other parents who have been through starting daycare with an infant. How many bottles a day do you send to daycare for your child? I am breastfeeding and started pumping about 2 weeks ago. I’m getting mysel... More
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
