• Should my 7 month old be drinking more water? Also how much solids does your baby eat a day?

    She’s been eating solids for over a month but I haven’t really been giving her water along with it. She only eats solids usually once a day. Should she be eating solids more then that? I just breast feed her before the solids and as normal throughout the day. Is that enough or should I be getting her used to... show more

I just breast feed her before the solids and as normal throughout the day. Is that enough or should I be getting her used to drinking some water also? I don’t want to give her to much because I heard it could throw off there electrolytes.

  • 22 month old boy hitting his 4 month old brother (very hard) in the face. Is a 22 month old too young to understand consequences for bad?

    behavior? He is being spoken to firmly about the hitting but it doesn't seem to be working. He will sneak up on the baby and hit him very hard in his face.

  • How to get 8 month old daughter to say "Mama" before wife's birthday?

    Best answer: If you try to practice with her, she won't know it refers to her Mom. That would be confusing. It will happen at the right time, and it will be special, then. You can't make a baby perform, on-command. Find or take some nice pics of her with Mom, and make a cute photo frame with them. Then, give Mom some... show more

    You can't make a baby perform, on-command. Find or take some nice pics of her with Mom, and make a cute photo frame with them. Then, give Mom some time to herself, time at a spa, etc.

    Whatever you do, she will appreciate it.

  • Baby waking up hysterically crying?

    hello guys, my little brother who is almost 6 month old is waking up at night hysterically crying. I did a little bit of research and found out that it can either be from illness of just baby missing parents. But I recently saw that baby is waking up sweaty. Can it be that the baby sees some kind of nightmare?

  • I am so scared about having a baby. My body?

    Best answer: Your body will go back if you want it to. It just requires diet and exercise to lose the baby weight. Your body is specifically designed to do this. Do the epidural and it's not the big deal that popular culture would lead you to believe. And stop watching other women give birth. You're just causing... show more

    And stop watching other women give birth. You're just causing yourself unnecessary anxiety.

  • How can I get my ten month old to sleep?

    We have tried everything! We slept in the same room as her, we have a bedtime routine, we even tried the cry it out method in desperation and that didn't work.

    We have tried everything! We slept in the same room as her, we have a bedtime routine, we even tried the cry it out method in desperation and that didn't work. She's a wonderful baby during the day, barely cries or fusses but when it's time for bed (she rubs her ties because she's tired) she has the most horrific screaming meltdowns I've ever seen. She screams so hard she makes herself puke. We've tried nightlights, no lights, lullaby, co-sleeping, using the bottle to put her to sleep, everything we can think of. It is so horrible for all of us that I've decided we won't have any more kids because I truly can not handle this a second time. I don't care about her sleeping through the night, I care about getting her to sleep without the screaming. Please, does anyone know what to do? Any advice?

  • Why are most baby carriers front facing when traditionally women carried their babies on their backs?

    Traditionally Inuit, Africanans Asian women carried their babies in slings on their backs. This makes me wonder why it seems most baby carriers are forward facing. It’s seems having a baby on your back would allow for greater movement

Now another week later according to my home scale, he is 11lbs. Our two month checkup is in two weeks and I’m afraid he’s gaining too fast and will be close to 12lbs. He is exclusively formula fed. Anyone have experience with this?

  • Should I be worried? Will it resolve on it s own or should I take her to the doctor?

    Best answer: I get why you're worried, as an adoptive mum of a newborn exposed to drugs. But when I read your description of her behaviour, I went back to where you said how old she is, and then I went, 'oh, that explains it'. Around 6-8 weeks there is usually not only a physical growth spurt, but a pretty big... show more
    Best answer: I get why you're worried, as an adoptive mum of a newborn exposed to drugs. But when I read your description of her behaviour, I went back to where you said how old she is, and then I went, 'oh, that explains it'.

    Around 6-8 weeks there is usually not only a physical growth spurt, but a pretty big developmental spurt. More awake time, more aware of surroundings, more conscious control of limbs, starting to anticipate familiar routines, first social smiles but also often more crying than at any other time, even improving eyesight.

    This is when it's normal for the predictable routine of feeding-changing-sleeping to get shaken up for the first time. That's not due to drugs or autism. Baby simply becomes capable of being distracted!

    Just one thing: 3.5-4 hours between feeds is actually pretty long for this age, and crying is a late sign of hunger. You could try to feed at earlier hunger cues, when baby isn't as agitated yet. This may or may not help, but certainly doesn't hurt.

  • Baby has bumps with red rings on her legs !?

    Baby has bumps with red rings on her legs !?

    She had a vaccine on her left leg but she developed what appear to be bumps with a ring around it on both legs 10 days later. (Two have already disappeared). Are these bug bites or something associated within the vaccine? (The vaccine was almost two weeks ago)
