Congratulations and welcome! I am also new to this community and my name is Olivia. I live an hour north of Houston...sorry you had to go thru all of the heat. My daughter Madelyn Renee is now a month old and is also doing well with breastfeeding. If you ever have any questions on breastfeeding go to the breastfeeding community. I had a few questions when she was a week old and I was able to find some answers and reassurance.View Thread
When my daughter was constipated my doctor said I could use Karo Syrup. I put very little at first (half a teaspoon) in the bottle and shook it up to mix it to see how well it would work. It helped alot but I did have to use it for a period of time. If I stopped, a few weeks later I would have to start using it again. I did this until she was potty trained. With DD2 I have been bf exclusively and have not had to suplement as I did with DD1. She is only a week old, so I will have to see how things go with her.View Thread
