I think nursing every 2 hours day or night is pretty standard for a newborn. I hear most babies settle down around 4 months. Mine never did and still wakes every 2 hours to nurse at 8.5 months. But he's always been a chubby baby and I'm certain he gets enough. As long as your babe is peeing and pooping enough there is no need to supplement!
After DS spit up choked and turned blue one night due to reflux and back sleeping we started sleeping him on his side (he was probably 2 weeks old?) he slept on his side until about 5 or 6 months when he started rolling onto his tummy.
Hanging out waiting for the return of AF at 8.5 months PP here. Baby is still nursing a zillion times at night so I think that's helping to delay her return. I'd happily trade a horrendous AF for a full night's rest . Oh well, I don't miss her.
I covered up with a blanket until my DS was 6 months old at which point he would just pull it off and refuse to nurse covered up. So now we don't. No one has ever said anything negative to me about NIP.
We offered DS cereal at 6 mos but he was totally uninterested. He didn't eat solids at all until around 7 mos and still doesn't eat as much as 'they' recommend at 8 mos.

[QUOTE=Belia;13217554]. We leave the house and do something EVERY SINGLE DAY. We go to Target... we go to the mall.... we go for a drive... I'll go to Noodles & Company for lunch. I don't actually buy much, but we get out of the house. I can't imagine trying to entertain him at home all day, every day. QUOTE] This. When my DS (8 months) was brand new and it was warm out we went out everyday. Now we still go out more than not but some days I let myself take a...

Rather, that is how they think it is best to parent. I think in many areas, these attitudes are shifting. It is cultural...

My 8 month old DS LOVES songs with actions- wheels on the bus, hokey pokey, if you're happy and you know it, and the green grass grew all around. He just loves them all. I also love to put on music and dance with him .
