angelag3girls - Wednesday, 10 December Hopefully it is a growth spurt and will be over it in about a week. Just keep offering the breast and if she slows down to much maybe take one of her solids away and see if the nursing picks back up. Solids are mainly for practice anyways so its not really a have to have kinda thing. It could also be upsetting her stomach. Did you notice if the fussing picked up after a new food introduced to her? Just some ideas here as the fussing can come from many reasons.
angelag3girls - Tuesday, 9 December How often is she getting solids during the day? She could be doing this for a number of reasons. sleep strike, hungry, too much going on. Can you nurse her in a quiet room to see if she will settle down for a nap? I don't think my post will be much help since I don't really know but hopefully it will give you atleast one new idea. Good luck

adriennella - Monday, 1 December Thank you for your Santa Baby photo comment.
You absolutely made my day! I am trying to find a contest now, hehee!
You and your husband are adorable. You look so much in love!
ladobruk - Saturday, 15 November Ya, I know what you mean...life's hectic ways have crept back! My Shay is doing great. She sleeps like it's her job, lol. We are very lucky in that dept. Yes, I was breast feeding but actually just weaned this week. I did it very gradually. Over the past couple months I started mixing formula & breast milk and gradually increased the formula to breast milk ratio and this week I stopped pumping all together and the past 2 days she has had formula only. I feel a little sad about it. But, I am ready to move on! She was such a big feeder! I am happy to be at 3 hr feeding intervals and am excited to hit 4. That was never happening while breastfeeding. Yes, I started her on solids at 5 1/2 mths. She is doing great with them. Like I said she is a feeder! So far the only thing she doesn't like is peas and even then she still eats them, lol. She just makes funny faces and does the shiver with each bite. I am still pretty much just on veggies, the only fruit I have introduced is bananas so far. I am making her food so for some reason boiling fruit seems foreign and I just haven't tried it yet. I will have to get on that next week!

momoffive - Saturday, 1 November well, I actually only have 4 now. The 5th was our foster daughter. I need to update my page on that. We ended up not being able to keep her. As the year progressed, she was not thriving with us. She had a lot of issues stemming from severe neglect her first two years of life and a lot of drug and alcohal exposure........We just finished the transition to the amazing couple that want to adopt her so it's a little raw still. For the best for everyone but hard. I have lost weight pretty easily after all of them. I had some pretty bad depression after my second so I didn't gain quite as much weight due to that I think but for the other three I've gained and dropped at pretty much the same rate.
ladobruk - Saturday, 1 November She is doing awesome! 6 mths is such a fun age isn't it? Ya she is pretty sparce in the hair dept plus it is so light you can only see it best when the light is shining on it, lol. I am so happy she can sit up on her own now. I was waiting for that milestone to come. Now I am perfectly content and want her to stop growing, lol. She is really interested in her toys now so it is great to sit her down and let her play and I can clean up breakfast, make dinner etc. HOw is your little one doing? I bet she is learning quick with 2 older kids in the house. Do they just love her? We plan to have another when Shay is close to 2. Hopefully all goes as planned!
mommyinthesky - Friday, 31 October Hi, You know, I started running in July and my milk started to go away. I stopped and it came back. I just started running again about a month ago and although my supply has gone down a bit, it's OK to me now because he is 7 months, he has some formula when I'm at work, and he has some food now too. But for me, it did change my milk supply. Also, no matter how much I run or no matter what I eat, I have not lost anything else. My doctor said to wait until I stop breastfeeding and that it will come off easier. I hope she is right.
momoffive - Friday, 31 October Excersize while breastfeeding is fine as long as you make sure your keeping up your calorie intake and drinking pleanty of water. I personaly hold on to ten extra pounds until I wean, then it just magicly disapears. I am down to 139 which is the smallest I've been in 2 years and with the last three dropped ten so I am really hoping that I'll drop below 130 when I wean Sam. That would be the lowest I've been since I got pregant with my first 9 years ago!!!
ladobruk - Friday, 31 October I breast feed also and all my trainer said was to try not to breast feed for about an 1-2 hours after exercising. The lactic acid in your system can make your breast milk taste bad. But that is all. I have breast fed after exercising and she hasn't refused or made any funny faces. Exercising shouldn't effect your milk but do not try to restrict your calorie intake also. That could effect your supply. As long as you are eating healthy foods and exercising moderately, you will lose weight safely. P.S. your kids are adorable! And, I think we previously established this but I also named my daughter Shayla!
lizzie287 - Thursday, 16 October hey, just saw your question about feeding. personally i feed on demand and that works beautifully for us. my doctor and lactation consultant both agree that this is probably best for babies, but as you said, everyone seems to have different opinions. But personally i think breast babies should be on demand.

ladobruk - Saturday, 19 July Some advice that worked for us was to go by a 90 minute sleep cycle. So, around this time after she wakes I pay close attention to catch her sleep cues and immediately get her ready for a nap as soon as I see one. If I catch it perfectly, she is sleeping within 5 minutes, other times it takes 15-20 mins to get her down. But, it has worked really well for us. She is now napping 3 times per day. She is still only napping about 45 mins, occasionally longer, but the extra nap has made a difference. She is waking up happy and is much happier throughout the day so it must be all she needs.
yummy mummy2010 - Monday, 7 July hiya everything is fine cameron goes for his first jabs on wednesday poor thing i carnt belive my son is 2 month old allready lol he wakes up twice threw the night but hes awake most of the day making funny noises and smiling lol xx
Jadens*MaMa - Sunday, 6 July i love the poll you did.. i thought her name was chole but o was wrong!!
ladobruk - Tuesday, 24 June She is now feeding about 8-10 times throughout the day. What an awesome program. I would love something like that here. It is exactly what I need. I try to start her first nap at her first yawn, but it is such a battle. She fights it so hard. I have to rock her or nurse her to sleep and lately, she won’t even stay sleeping when I do that. I even went and purchased another swing that moves more like the glider; that worked for about 4 days and now it is like she is use to it. So frustrating!
ladobruk - Monday, 23 June Shayla is breastfeed. I know, strange she can do such a long stretch on just breast milk, but she must be so exhausted come the end of the day! I don't think they have such a thing as sleep school in my area. Maybe, I have never heard of it. How does it work?
ladobruk - Monday, 23 June My daughter is the same way and oddly enough her name is also Shayla! She is 8 weeks old and since week 2 she stopped sleeping well during the day, but she now does an 8-9 hour stretch at night; feeds and goes back down for another 2-3. I am lucky to get her to take 2 45 min naps throughout the day. By the end of the day and evening she is usually cranky.
weenerh - Sunday, 1 June Michelle, my son had an umbilical hernia also from the time he was born. When it started getting bigger, I took him to the dr who in turn referred me to a specialist who set up an umbilcal hernia repair for the following week. It was pretty simple, all they did was make a little, tiny incision and removed it or popped it back in (however they fix it) and that was it. The recovery time was about a week for him. It wasn't as dreadful as I thought it was going to be.
