Both of my older children (now with kids of their own) used good old fashioned, 4 castor wheel walkers. My son walked at 11 months and has no back, hip, or tendon problems. My daughter walked at 9 months old - yes - and used the walker ALOT, before she walked unattended at 9 months. She is an elite athlete and also has no tendon, hip problems. She did have ...

Myself and my two brothers, according to my parents, all tugged our ears when we were tired. I actually still find myself doing it once in a while if I'm exhausted and I've caught my niece and nephews exhibiting the same behavior. IMO, it's a telltale sign that they're doneski : T-minus 30 min until complete meltdown; get the story book out or you'll ...

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 ...

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, ...

I wanted to add that babies, while they should sleep on their backs, they may be laid down on their side. This too will seem as if they are still being held in cradle position. This of course after you have verified that the baby is on deep sleep or almost there. It works both ways for me and Yes, it does depend on the baby's mood for that night.

I looked at one manufacturer's recommendation for storage of their formula products to get this answer. For unopened cans of Similac® infant formulas, most desirable storage temperatures are between 13°C [55°F] and 24°C [75°F], but between 0°C [32°F] and 35°C [95°F] is also acceptable. 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 ...

the last time this happened to me i called my mother on the phone. just having her presence helped the soul-wrenching that his crying causes me and i was able to focus on the road and tune him out. i couldn't hear her very well over speakerphone with him screaming, but just knowing she was there, singing old macdonald with me to try to calm him, left a ...

Actually, there is no special diet to follow for the nursing mothers if their eating habits are healthy. There is no particular food to avoid. But sometimes babies will be fussy at the breast after eating a particular food; you need to avoid such foods for few days and re-introduce them to confirm whether there’s an effect. Still there are certain foods you ...

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 ...
