Annoying eating habits by Akuvikate
My sweet wonderful 6 week old DD has picked up a few annoying eating habits. I'm posting in hopes of getting some insight into either why she does this, what to do about it, or both. 1. Towards the end of a feed, sometimes she'll start contorting and twisting her whole body around while keeping...

Bottle mention in folksong by Akuvikate
In O Brother Where Art Thou there's a wonderful lullaby (track 10 on the soundtrack, called "Didn't Leave Nobody but the Baby") that I like to sing to the Bug. After the CD had been missing for a while I just found it and was able to listen to all the lyrics. There's one verse that says "Honey in...

AFand sore nipples by al
AF returned last month and was accompanied by very sore nipples. It was almost as bad as nursing a newborn (pain wise...but there was no rawness). Poor little guy wasn't happy with the decreased output, which didn't help. It just made him want to nurse more frequently. And from the return of...

18mo wants me to nurse her bears! by Al Bell
My 18-month-old daughter, who nurses on demand when she's not in daycare, now wants me to nurse her toy bears and put shoes on them. I couldn't find any references to this type of thing in the baby books and was wondering if other toddler parents out there are experiencing this sort of thing.

nursing and ergo carrier? by Al Bell
Nursing and Ergo Carrier: When my daughter passed 20 pounds, I had a hard time fanning the shoulder of the Maya Wrap, so I got an Ergo baby carrier, which is sort of like a Baby Born with a waist band. The Ergo is great, but it's really hard to breastfeed in it. I have to hold my breast up almost...

Sore breasts by aldee
I'm 15 weeks pg, and it honestly feels like my breasts are on fire. They are so hot, so sore, so *heavy*, and anything - even air - irritates them. The idea of DH touching me or of breast feeding in 5 months time is enough to make me scream. They've been sore for over a month now, and I kept...
