No, nothing is too late. I sense some very important things in your favour: Your milk supply matches her needs. Two weeks is pretty early, even in "standard" cases BF is still not that established at that age. You seem determined to make this work and willing to ask for help -an excellent attitude. Without more details, it's hard to give precise advice, ...

It may very well be helping her, and it's (probably) very helpful for you to have something to do during these stressful times. I presume when you say "directly into her ear", you mean that her ear is perpendicular to your mouth. If this is the case, you have nothing to worry about. The decibels of her crying are likely to be higher than your singing, and ...

My first baby was 4 weeks early. He had a hard time latching, since his mouth was so tiny. He was also VERY small and skinny, and we were only allowed 15 min of breastfeeding as it wore him out. He had a much easier time with a nipple shield for the first few weeks. It was recommended by a nurse, though my nipples are not flat. I would say go ahead and ...

Storage at extreme temperatures compromises the quality of the ...

I have a 7 month old baby girl and the thing that helped the most for us, besides having someone sit in the back with her, is to have one of those mirrors mounted on the headrest of the back seat so I can see her face in my rear view mirror. This eases my anxiety about driving with her and I'm not sure if it will help you but I did not see it mentioned here ...

I have an eight month old who used to do this same thing. What worked for me: Give him five minutes or so before going to him. A lot of times, my baby would be at a light point in her sleep cycle, and start stirring and crying, but would still have her eyes closed. If I would let her fuss for a few minutes, she would often move back into a deeper sleep ...

My baby girl who is now almost 2.5 years old have been taking "swimming" lessons since she's 3 months old. We bring her to a private pool in the surroundings each Saturday and she gets a private lesson during 15 minutes, without us being in the pool. In the beginning, the goal is "survival": teach the baby to fall in the water from various heights in ...
