Has anyone had experience with this? I've read on Kellymom that the side effects are seen in babies under the age of 3 months...but what are the side effects? It seems like the second-safest choice for BF moms. Would really appreciate any info or experiences anyone has had with this... thanks!

I mean, sure, maybe she was offended...but I'm constantly being offended by people who are anti-BF and don't fly off the handle about it. ITA! I feel like everywhere I go not only am I supposed to defend myself against glares/stares but now also...

Thank you!!! She's really been participating a lot more happily this week...I've brought in some other resources to help us along. Got some videos, have ordered more books to read at bed time and just use Spanish a lot more around the house. I...
I actually had an amazing experience with this when my DD was 18 months old. She needed to get bloodwork done and so I talked to her about it several times the day before and the morning of. I told her that the doctors needed to get some stuff from her arm to see if she needed medicine, and that it would be a poke that will hurt, but that it won't last long. We kept talking about the "poke" and the next day while she was getting the bloodwork she looked straight at the...

The younger daughter, a five-year-old, came over and leaned over the arm of my chair, staring in astonishment as I nursed the baby. Just want to...

Thanks everyone for the encouraging replies...I think we were just having a rough few days. It seems that by using more Spanish in speaking to our newborn, older DD's more interested! Also wanted to clarify that I use Spanish with her every day, but mostly English. It was when I started to include more Spanish that she started resisting. I'm really hoping things keep improving, I've gotten some activity books and will be getting Spanish videos as well...preschool's...

I've written here before about gently introducing the language I grew up with (Spanish) to my DD who was probably around 18 mo - 2 years at the time. She's now 2 3/4 and I have to admit, I've dropped the ball with Spanish. My DH doesn't speak it and we are surrounded by English...we see my Mom once a week and she speaks Spanish only to DD. I have committed to reading her at least one Spanish book per day and try to tell her the Spanish word for things we see every day,...
Good for you!!! And lactating mamas!
