1 month old has painful gas and bm. Drinks both formula and breastmilk. Any advice to help ease the pain?
Practicing attachment parenting so feeding on demand and having great success with night time sleeping/feeds. 2.5m old and at least one 5-6 hour sleep cycles. Problem is... I get engorged when baby sleeps longer (I am not complaining lol) but then wonder if I should: -get up and pump -stir baby for a brief dream sleep if it’s close to when they wake -have my body adjust to feeding less frequently. I am exclusively breastfeeding so will save the milk if pumped, but there are nights I’d rather sleep... I have had mastitis, so also nervous to go that route. Tips and tricks or experience... More
Hi mamas, My baby is 7 weeks old and has been breastfeeding just fine, until recently. Her latch has become much narrower and she falls off very easily. It’s almost like I have to keep my breast sandwiched in my hand and holding her face up into it in order to ensure that she’s eating. I introduced a bottle a day at the 4 week mark and she rarely ever takes a binky. Has anyone else experienced something similar? Any suggestions?
I need some advice on ways to slowly help my son with his obsession with me Lol, All though I believe babies should always have their mother around Especially at 2 months of age, It's to the point where I can't even get up to do dishes or really even do anything without him freaking out. Has anyone else dealt with this?
Advice for 3mo old that hates his stroller and car seat?! Will sometimes cry himself to sleep in the car or on a walk but when he wakes up again he SCREAMS and becomes hysterical to be taken out. We’ve tried different car seats and strollers and doesn’t seem to make a difference. It’s affecting naps and our ability to get out of the house!
Is it too early to start giving a 3 month old a set bedtime of 7/8 o’clock? Ours goes to sleep around 1030 but it takes a few times before she stays asleep and some nights up awake past midnight. I’ve read that sleep training is pointless until 4 months old but I’d love to get her asleep earlier! Thoughts??
I am a little anoyed...I have a 2 month old baby, I breast feed during the day and at night I leave her bottles ready for night feeding. My husband agreed to help me taking a shift during night but every time is his turn to get up I have to wake him up and then stay awake during his shift because he cannot stay awake while feeding the baby!!! What is the point of him getting up if I'm going to be awake too? I am going back to work in a week and am thinking what is the benefit of having 2 tired parents? Ughh, I'm really anoyed! Help!
Traveling overseas with a newborn... it can be done! Lessons learned: We’ve been making friends with strangers through strategic baby positioning (face out in carrier). Wish we had left our stroller at home- see pic of stroller and me barely fitting in an elevator. We ended up deciding that parental leave was the only foreseeable time in the future to head out of town... if you’re considering, I say go for it! We’ve been in France and Italy, both have been super family-friendly places (like people insist you go ahead of them in line kinda friendly).
Since we had our daughter, I feel like my husband and I are strangers. Were all of a sudden on different pages. Shes 1 month old now. When we finally do have some time together, he's on his phone, totally checked out, I always have to repeat myself because he doesn't hear me I don't know what to do.
My youngest (2months) has been fussy from day 1. I think it’s upset tummy troubles, but don’t know for sure. My mom has recently heard about gripe water and is insistent I should try it with the baby. Has anyone used it with heir children? What are some positives and negatives?
Anyone have advice for a 2.5 month old babe to nap more independently? He naps on me for almost every nap with the exception of stroller or car seat for short cat naps. We haven’t started sleep training yet but plan to soon... he just hates being put down so much! Especially on his back... will rarely just “chill” on the floor, bed etc..
Best pacifier for a three month old? Have used soothies 0-3 up to this point which he likes. Curious what other mamas do. My guy is pretty easy going. Wondering if anyone has experience with rubber or other brands. Has anyone tried the smileo? I saw ads on Facebook and was intrigued. Thanks!
