I had a mom friend tell me to just pay attention to what my son seemed to need re: solids, and not worry about what others thought.  My son ate less than 2 jars (I assume you mean the medium-sized ones?) per day at 11mo, and had only just been consistently having 2 very small solids meals a day since about 10mo.  Soon thereafter, though, I had a feeling he wanted to have a solids lunch, too, so I started giving it to him most days.  Around the same time, he started...
We're in a similar position.  My son has always had some amount of oral motor tone issues (we had a lot of trouble/soreness latching after birth, later we had problems again as he got his first teeth, etc.).  He's now 18 1/2 mo and basically not talking.  We just had the general evaluation today, and the lead evaluator (developmental specialist?) tried to equate his continued breastfeeding as being as bad for his oral motor tone etc. as bottles (which he won't take...
My son is over 18mo old.  He had a beautiful stretch of time from about 10wks until around 5mo when he fairly consistently slept 5-6hrs in the first stretch at night.  After that for a while, he was up every hour for the rest of the night.  And then for the best period of time - 4-5mo - he would usually only wake up twice (around 3am and 6am).  And.... then it stopped.  He got a respiratory bug, and his sleep really never recovered.  We now are fairly sure he had...
At 13mo, especially since she's a fast crawler and cruising and pushing a push toy - I wouldn't worry about it.  That's still well within the normal range.  My mother was just telling me yesterday how while I turned over both ways at normal times, I was very, VERY slow to sit up unsupported and in starting to crawl.  As in I was 9-10mo before I did either one!  But then I was pulling up shortly thereafter, and cruised until I walked at 15mo.  My sister sat up, crawled...
My son goes through periods of time where he farts all the time.  When he was a little baby, he would explosively fart and poop all the time - sometimes people across a large room would hear it!  Then it lessened in frequency (which is normal), but got to the point that he would clearly be in pain if he didn't poop once a day, and was on average only going ever 1.5-4 days.  It was not a good time for any of us.  Then, almost as inexplicably as it started, it got better...
I think it's highly variable.  I've known people who were exclusively nursing who got their periods back at 5-6mo PP, and some not until past 24mo.  I myself just got mine back (YAY!!!!) last night - my son is 18.5mo.  I have PCOS, am almost 35, and we did IVF to have my son, so I was particularly anxious to have my period come back (a necessary but not sufficient first step toward hopefully getting pregnant with a second child).  A friend of mine had no fertility issues...
Hi all -   (I hope I'm posting in the right place!)   I'm still nursing my 18.5mo old son a number of times per day (5-10+ times/24hrs, of varying durations).  I FINALLY just got my first postpartum period last night - since I'll be 35 this summer, we'd like to have another baby, but I have PCOS and we did IVF to have our son, I'm THRILLED to have at least my first postpartum period.  (I haven't been this excited about getting a period since my first one!)  I had...
I am FURIOUS about this! Does anyone know how to complain to the right government entities about this?!
Dr. Coryllos is retired. I e-mailed with Catherine Genna about my 15-month-old son, and she agreed that his pics definitely show a lip tie, and a possible posterior tongue tie. She suggested we go to Dr. Linda Dahl in NYC. She said he definitely does have a posterior tongue tie, in addition to the lip tie. I really like her and would like to go with her, but we have no insurance coverage in NY state. My husband wants us to try to find an option in NJ or PA, where we...
I am pale-American , and my husband is South Indian. He's on the less-dark side for South Indian (he's one of the palest in his family), shaves his head and has a mustache & goatee. He is frequently mistaken for African-American, Middle Eastern or Hispanic (usually Mexican or Puerto Rican), depending on context. Living in the NYC area, there are lots of people of all different backgrounds - most frequently people have assumed African-American around here. We were...
