So for my first son I made his food when he started eating now I have a 6 month old and when he started eating I made him his food also but the convenience side of me says to buy it and I also don’t have the time like I did with my first and he’s had it only because my husband bought it but I feel bad since I didn’t do that with my first. I know there’s nothing wrong with it but I want to do th... More
My about-to-turn 1 year old is having a lot of trouble pooping. Her poops are big and hard and she is screaming in pain while pooping. I've been trying to feed her extra water and high fiber foods like pears, blueberries, and whole grains but she will not eat prunes or prune juice for the life of me. Any other ideas? It's been a week of her suffering when pooping and the doctor says if ... More
Started my baby on foods (BLW) about a month ago at just over 6 months. Since we started, he’s had a rash on his stomach that comes and goes, can’t really find a pattern or specific food that is the cause. He doesn’t seem to itch or be bothered and the pediatrician said it was just sensitive skin. I put aquaphor on it daily. I’m worried this is just the beginning of some sort of allergy (like I... More
My 7mo baby eats solids 2-3 times a day. She is EBF .. so she drinks less milk than before , i mean before she used to drink for 30 mins.. now she drinks for 15 mins n sometimes even less than that.. i feed her milk first and solids after that so that she drinks milk more.. but its still the same.. but her weight growth seems very good..
My daughter turned 4 months on the 5th of April and at her 4 month appointment our pediatrician suggested we start solids. She’s a rather big baby, 17lbs and 24.5 inches long (her dad is 6’7 and i was a big baby at her age too). Our daughter doesn’t last very long in between bottles and our pedi said it will help her feel fuller for longer. I’d love to start her on solids so she can last longer... More
My daughter just turned one and I’d like to start weening her off of her formula slowly. What’s the best way to do this while still making sure she gets all the nutrients she needs. Also, she’s very attached to her bedtime bottle, but I’d like to put a stop to that too because I’d like to start brushing her teeth before bed but I don’t want to start until she is done with her bed time bottle....

Hi everyone, My son is 10 months old and he is such a picky eater, it almost seems like he doesn’t like anything. In the beginning he only liked sweet potatoes and now he eats it but some days he hates it. I’ve tried giving him everything and he won’t eat. I have to force him to eat and it just feels like we aren’t getting anywhere by me doing that. All he loves to eat is his milk (i bottle fee... More
My daughter is 9 months, she don't have any teeth yet but has been eating Gerber baby food for about 4 months now. I want to start giving her more solid type of food and not just puree but I am nervous. Can anyone give me some recommendations on how to start giving her more solid foods? Thank you in advance for any advice.
My daughter has always been breast fed. She would sleep long periods through the night up until 2 or 3 months ago. Now she wakes up to feed every 2 hours most nights. Sometimes it’s only an hour between feedings...sometimes she’ll make it 4 or 5 hours before needing to feed again. She eats some solids...she’s not a huge fan of much other than her cereal. We try to make sure she eats that before... More
When baby sleeps/naps through a feed which takes precedence? The formula or the solids? We are just over 9 mo and I’m getting confused what to give her...our doctor (Kaiser) does not have a checkup between 6 and 12 months if your baby has been on track, gaining steadily, and meeting milestones. I hate to bother the doctor (and wait the requisite 48 hour turnaround time) with a question I’m s... More
Hi parents, hoping to get some advice for my 1 year old. He refused the bottle starting at around 9 mos and will only take the breast. At daycare, he’s moved to solids and takes milk/water occasionally by spoon. Recently, when he’s home and not at daycare, he only eats a few bites before screaming to get out of the chair. I tried feeding him in multiple places thinking it might be the high cha... More
