I was visiting my daughter. She has a 1 month old baby. There was several people visiting so, we were about to leave. Then I saw the baby's grandfather give a piece of watermelon to the baby...pushing it in his mouth. I said "he can't have that!" He said "yes he can" and continued to feed the baby I got up and left in a furry. I heard my daughter come in the room and tell them "the baby is breastfed and only gets milk". I don't know what else happen. I left.
What is going on?? Who does that?? Who doesn't know babies cannot have solid food?? I was so afraid he would choke or get sick. His poor little system isn't done developing yet. Can the baby have problems from ingesting watermelon so young?View Thread
Hi, As this article says , some babies can start to roll from tummy to back at 4 months old, but most start around 6 months . This article on development has some information on where most babies are developmentally on things like sleep, motor skills, etc at 2 months old. This slideshow outlines some of the milestones your son will accomplish in his first year, and a rough timeline on when you can expect those to occur. Hope this helps!View Thread

My daughter is having difficulty with milk supply and is supplementing her baby's nutrition. I looked at the formula ingredients and the #1 ingredient is Corn Syrup the #4 ingredient is sugar. A couple of oils are in it (safflower, soy, and coconut). I just can't believe that's good nutrition. I looked on line for alternatives and saw goats milk as an alternative but wanted to check that out. That led me to your site. I'll continue to look around but I'd appreciate thoughts on the sugar. It seems like it's the beginning of an early addiction.View Thread
Does he have plenty of wet diapers still? It might be a good idea to ask your pediatrician at what point you should be concerned so that you know what he is thinking. 2 weeks does sound like a long time, but others in here have posted that their doctors said it was normal for their children to go 11 days. Just keep consulting with your pediatrician, and please let us know how your son is doing!View Thread
I do not believe in the "cry it out" method. The child is crying because his/her needs aren't being met. If the child is hungry and crying for food and you're leaving him/her alone to "cry it out" then you're simultaneously starving the child. The child could have a dirty diaper, upset stomach, or many other reasons for him/her to be crying. Our son watches us come and go from the room with him and he knows when he's in the room alone. While I'm no expert, the child knows his needs aren't being met and that he's not being comforted.View Thread

"Up to half of very young children use smartphones and tablets in some way before their first birthday, a new study finds. But parents still worry about their children's use of mobile media, a separate study says.
By age 1 year, more than one-third of their babies had touched or scrolled the screen of a mobile device such as a smartphone. And by age 2, more than half had scrolled screens, called someone, watched a TV show on the device, played video games or used an app, Kabali found.
Also by 2 years of age, more than one-quarter were using mobile devices for at least an hour a day."
Read the article above to see when young children are using electronics the most and what (if any) the impact might be.
How young do you think it too young for children to begin using smartphones and tablets? Does your little one use electronic devices?View Thread

Are there any women who have experienced the same thing as me? I breast feed both my babies and LOVED it. Other women always said they loved it too but wouldn't go into details. Breast feeding was so pleasurable I actually became orgasmic. It was not a sexual type of orgasm but one that came from intense love, pleasure and happiness...but it was an orgasm never the less. It never felt wrong or 'dirty'....it felt right and made me feel closer to my babies. Intense love. It did not happen all the time. Never when I was out or people were around. Only when I was alone, feeing relaxed and thinking of what a miracle I was holding. Anyone????View Thread

If he is still experiencing these symptoms, I think that it would be best to have him examined by your pediatrician just to make sure that the rash isn't something that needs medical attention. Please let us know how he is doing!View Thread
Here is some information about umbilical hernias that you might find helpful... it outlines what your pediatrician is looking for and when surgery may be needed.

Had a simular problem with my son. One thing my wife and I did was put an air matress on the floor in the romm and laid there until he went to bed. Then went to bed ourselves, trying to get him comfortable with being in his own bed. We also put set an appropriate bed time were strict until it became habit. If he woke up at night we'd put him back to bed in his bed maybe with a juice cup or milk cup.View Thread

I have never posted on any sites like this but my second son was diagnosed with anal stenosis but also malformation. Unlike everyone else who has posted so far my son had to have 2 surgeries at 16 weeks old to correct. It was terrible and heartbreaking to see him in so much pain and we were very worried about how it would affect him in the future. He is now 4 years old and since 2-3 months post surgery he has been fine with no problems at all. You would never know he had a problem, so anyone facing a slightly more extreme case than the others here please know there is light at the end of the tunnel and it can be quiet easily fixed. We have just had our 3rd child and so far she seems fine. I really feel for you having to deal with it twice. We were told it's not genetic but after reading your story I wonder I that's true? My first son also had a tongue tie maybe there is a link ?View Thread

"Parents who buy breast milk online may not always get 100 percent human milk. A new study found about 10 percent of samples tested were contaminated with cow's milk.
Besides cytomegalovirus, breast milk purchased online may contain viruses such as hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV, said Dr. Susan Landers, a neonatologist in Austin, Texas. Breast milk donations at regulated milk banks are tested for these viruses, and rejected if they test positive."
Read the article above for more information.
Have you heard of online breast milk banks? What are your thoughts?View Thread
