Wow MNMommy3, you are lucky.. the Depo shot caused me to have fertility issues as well as a HUGE weight gain, now I loved not having a cycle while on it but I would never use it. I only have one LO and we are hoping for more so for now we are not using any BC but when we are done I will have my tubes tied and be completely done with it.View Thread
My doctor has never said that there is any reason that you can't change formula, I have tried my little girl on all but the Gerber, that is next to see what works best for her. The Similac made her terribly gassy and the Enfamil works but the Good Start was a sample so I figure I will give it a shot. Really they are gonna have to learn about different foods and everything too. I have started my little one on baby food, and that is going to change from day to day once we make sure she isn't allergic to anything so what is the difference?View Thread
She might be hitting a growth spurt, my daughter did at that age, I gave her 6oz for one bottle then 4oz for the next and that seemed to satisfy her, as long as you are not forcing her to take 6oz you should be good.View Thread
I am so happy to hear that they came and were able to put your mind at ease! Just remember that all children learn at different rates and that by getting the help you need you will be helping your child too!View Thread
My daughter is a little older than your son and is only 13lbs 9oz, she is 15 weeks old, I don't think your son is small, people don't realize how small babies really are when they are this age!View Thread
My daughter is breastfed as well, now she gets angry if you take her away from the breast even if you are switching and you stop to burp her, she gets angry so now she is so funny that she will be feeding and she burps on the breast, the first time it happened I was worried that something was wrong but now it happens with every feeding so I just let it go, as long as she isn't in pain and it isn't causing any problems then we are good is the way I feel about itView Thread
Ok just a couple of things to ask about... when the baby is whimpering in the crib is she actually awake or is she just making noise? I used to jump and run everytime my LO would whimper but then found if I wanted a little bit most of the times she would go right back to sleep. Just remember that babies have dreams like we do and sometimes the sounds they make are because they are "dreaming". Good Luck!View Thread
I was actually having the same issue with my DD, I talked to the Doctor about it, She said most likely they are going through a growth spurt and you need to give them extra, not necissarily baby food, have either of you tried to give them formula? That worked for DD, she is only 3 months old and now I give her a bottle in the evening and she generally only wakes once at night to eat, it turned out that she needed so much from me that my milk didn't have time to get the full fat in it so it wasn't as filling. Just a thought.
