I agree. Some babies are just more pukey than others. Feed her whenever she wants to bed fed. She is establishing your supply, developing her immune system, gaining weight, managing her stress and...

I found all the washable breast pads leaked. I used disposables, pigeon brand but I'm in Australia so not sure if you have them in the US. I didn't need them at all for the first few days either.

Does he not like the food or not want to be fed from a spoon? I'd also try finger good as itzj suggested.

I wouldn't offer unlimited options. Apart from anything else, I think little people find...

What test did you have done? How old is your baby? Women who have a history of GDM do have an increased risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.

How do you manage when day time sleeps end?

So it looks like DD2 (aged 2yr2mo) is semi-ready to give up her daytime sleep. I say semi-ready because she will still sleep and is much happier if she does sleep but then won't settle for the night...

How old is your DD? The oversupply should settle eventually. Can you try feeding in a laid back position to let gravity help regulate the flow?
