http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HT1h2tNNxQY Its my son and I think he has Sandifers syndrome which can be from severe GERD. Anyone see this before? He is very happy, loveable, wonderful baby. After he eats, he almost always postures, not always this severe but pretty much everytime he eats. He is primarily breastfed but it is bottle fed expressed milk because he has this extension thing so he pulls off the breast as soon as my milk comes in.....I gave up, but pump 5 times a day and can keep up. I give 1 bottle of Nutramigen formula at night with some cereal in it, per pedi recommendations. He has been allergy tested, no allergies. I have tried giving up milk and soy in my diet, no results. I tried no caffeine, no results. He is on prevacid and we periodically do chiropractic, we also elevate his head when he sleeps at night. He doesn't usually puke a lot, sometimes a little. he's in the 98th percentile for weight so sometimes I think doctors don't take me seriously but I did convince one doctor who is going to do an endoscopy on April 12, I think he thinks I'm crazy and he's just appeasing me. Unfortunately I didn't have this video to show him but will show him next time I see him. He wakes often at night because will only eat a little at a time, postures, then falls asleep again. Its exhausting!!!! Also posting on 1 year board.View Thread
Hi guys. I am a first time mother of a 5 month old little girl. She is such a good baby who is very pleasant and sweet. BUT when she gets tired, she will let you know. She will start getting fussy and rubbing her eyes, so I will pick her up, cuddle with her, and then lay her down in her crib with her mobile on/music playing.
As soon as I lay her down (i lay her down on her tummy because that is the ONLY way she will fall asleep), she starts the loud, non-stop crying unless I pick her up. She will roll over on her back crying even louder wanting me to pick her up. I just keep turning her over, rubbing her back, putting her pacifier back in her mouth, etc until she falls asleep. She WILL eventually go to sleep, but it takes anywhere from 10-20 minutes to get her down for a nap, and up to 30 minutes at bed time! Is this normal?? I let her cry it out sometimes, and I feel so guilty!
P.S.- she is on a routine and it's the same old stuff. I give her a bath around 7:30-8pm, a massage, a bottle, i cuddle with her, etc and then she is in bed by 9pm, 9:30 at the latest. she is also a very good sleeper...once she goes to sleep. she will get up around 7-7:30am every morning for a bottle and then go to sleep 10 minutes later and sleep until her next feeding at around 10:15am. Is she getting TOO much sleep? she takes 2-3 more naps during the day, one being 2 hours and the others being 45 minutes to an hour.
I need some help....I am a mom to 2 healthy little boys both normal height and weight and developing prefectly like they should..I know someone who had a child 5 months ago and baby(boy) was born normal on time at 8lbs 1 oz. Since birth the baby has been in the hospital 3 times and only weighs 11lbs. The mother has been feeding baby boy baby food since he was like 1 1/2 to 2 months old. Not a little baby food but a whole thing of baby food. She gets wic and was told to stop feeding him it and hasnt..I just found out that she wont tell the peds that she is giving him baby food. @ 4 months my boys were on cereal and at 6 months baby food per our peds. Lately her baby has been throwing up more then a sick adult would throw up....Need some advice as to what I should do. She wont listen to me so I dont know what to do.....PLEASE HELP.View Thread

I have been trying to get my baby girl to take a bottle since she was 2 weeks old...she would sometimes but then started to completely refuse. She is 4 1/2 months old now and i am thinking should I just start trying a sippy cup and skip this bottle thing. This is my thrid baby and I feel like she is my first....she is so different than my boys who took the breast, bottle and pacifer with no problem. But she refuses a pacifer and bottle and I feel like I dont know how to go about this. Do those of you that just nurse do eat, play. & sleep and if so how do you get your babies to sleep...rock them or nurse them? I guess I need some advice of sippy cups and some sort of routine to get her on for me and her. Thank you
By now, we are aware of the ongoing devastation caused by Japan's whopping 8.9 earthquake and resulting tsunami. I live in Southern California and do not feel prepared. Are you? Do you have a plan during a disaster or after to connect with family and friends? Do you have extra supplies including DIAPERS and WIPES!!!
Here's some information to share that may help you prepare:
Hi moms! Thought we could do a check in to see who is on this board with a few fun questions:
Kids age(s)/location: 2.5 and 6 year old girl, we're in Los Angeles Fave Dr. Seuss Book? Hop on Pop What do you think of Charlie Sheen's antics? I feel scared him - I think there's some mental issues outside of the ego and drugs. I had such a crush on him in the 80s!
Any new baby developments? I'm potty training my 2.5 year old - doing a lot of laundry! If you could do ANYTHING this weekend, what would it be? Babysitter, sushi with my husband! Spa treatment too?
Just wanted to introduce myself and Lo. Makayla turned 3 months Jan 23rd. We have been really busy with family issues so haven't been able to come on. She is doing wonderful and weighs about 14 pounds and 23 inches long. We keep tell her she is trying to outbet her sister who was 9.4 at birth and weighed the same at 3 months. (Makayla was 7.11 at birth) Makayla is coming into her own. Smiling , giggling, cooing. It is just so cute. I was worried that it wouldn't be so cute the 2nd go around but it is. Milla (big sister) is going great, No issues at all with bringing a baby into the house. She is a little mommy herself. Look forward to talking with all of you. Have a great day.View Thread

Our daughter is currently sleeping in a cradle swing in her nursery. I've tried to get her to sleep in her crib and she will sleep for 30-45 then she's wide awake. I have swaddled her, used a wedge, just a blanket, pacifier, etc and nothing seems to make her happy. I think she likes the cradle because its cozy but I REALLY want to get her in the crib. She's moving around so much and is almost rolling over, I think the crib would be better for her. Any suggestions? She is only 3 months old, so I think she's too young to let her "cry it out"??View Thread
My DD is 3 months old and is drinking 5oz. of formula at each feeding. She's satisified after each bottle but lately she seems to be hungry 2 hours later. We just increased her formula to 5 oz about two weeks ago. I'm not sure if she's ready for 6 oz because she seems to be full after eating? And I'm sure feeding her every 2 hours isn't good. Is it too early to put a little cereal into her bottle?View Thread

My daughter will be 6 months old this week. She goes down for her naps great...she gets tired i put her in her crib, turn on the mobile and cd player with classical music, and she falls asleep. at night same thing but she is up 30 minutes later and fighting sleep for over an hour! A couple of times I have even given in at put her in her swing to get her to fall back asleep because by 11:00 I am so desperate for sleep that I will do just about anything (except put her in bed with us that is one habit that we do not want to start!) Any suggestions would be greatly appriciated, I am desperate to get to bed at a decent time!!!!!View Thread
Hey everyone! My 4 month old daughter is 15 pounds and 7oz. She has about 30 oz of formula a day and just this week started a cereal feeding in the evening of a little more than a teaspoon of rice cereal. Im just wondering if any of you other parents ever have the problem with your baby's not seeming to want their bottles. For example my daughter got up this morning after sleeping all night and only had 4 oz. (Normally she has 6) I just called the Daycare to check on her and they said that she only wanting about 2 oz at a time. This is unusual for her, although she has done this before. I guess being a first time mom, any time she does anything out of the norm I get paranoid. What do you parents think? Thanks a bunch!!View Thread
Ever since Brylee was born she has always spit up when I fed her. She is now 4 1/2 months old and still spitting up. at her 1st check up her doctor said that it was fine and that she should stop around 3 months. But it hasn't slowed down at all. She was breast fed until about 3 months and now I do breast and bottle. Even if I give her solid food and a bottle she still spits up. Is there anything that I can do to help it? I think its the reason why she still eats every two hours.View Thread
My little boy is 5 months and is on stage 2 solids for about 2 weeks now. I have only been offering him veggies and fruits. Is it o.k to offer the stage 2 with the meats in it or do I have to wait till he is older. He is doing very well with all the fruit and veggie combos.View Thread
I hope I can describe this so you understand what I'm talking about. The other night my baby who is just 5 months old now, was sitting in her little bouncy seat in the kitchen while I cooked dinner. All the sudden she started moving her head side to side and kind of letting her eyes go while she did it. She did it twice. Then she was fine. I mean she seems fine so I don't know if she was just doing it or if maybe something isn't right. I don't know it weirded me out a little because when she did it, it just seemed off. She sort of does something like that when she's tired or falling asleep but I don't feel like she was either of those. Any advice or anyone have something similar like this happen?View Thread
My daughter is almost 3 months old and I have not BF in almost 2 months and last weeking she started bleeding from her right nipple. I tood her to her Dr and she has never seen this before. She was my Peds Dr so I know she had the experience. She is now sending us to our local Childrens Hospital. I was wondering if any other parents have expierenced this before and what was the out come? FYI the dr did order blood work and the hormones levels came back normalView Thread
My DD will be 5 months on the 14, 3 and 1/2 months corrrected since she was 7 weeks early, and for the last 4 nights at exactly 7pm she turns into a nightmare. She starts screaming blood murder like someone is killing her and we have a hard time getting her to calm down. I'm pretty sure she's past the colic stage and it only lasts about an hour but it's a hour of pure torture. We've tried gripe water, gas dropps, rocking swinging in her swing, putting her in her bouncy seat and walking around the house. This has only started in the last 4 days so we are at a loss as to what her problem is. Has anyone else had this occur and if so what did you do to help the LO? Our next step is to put her out in a snow drift in the back yard...lol just kidding. Just look at my profile pic at that cute little face. So cute.View Thread
My five month old son has excema and cradle cap. He scratches all the time and we try to keep his hands covered but he manages to leave scratches on his forehead and body. It has gotten to the point that he has little pimples/sores all over him and the products we have tried seem to have no effect. We have tried aquaphor, aveno baby, three different types of lotion, jojoba oil, baby oil, petroleum jelly, natural goats milk soap, dove, etc. We used a steroid hydrocortisone cream to great effect but we cant keep using that b/c too much use is bad. The pimples/sores look really terrible and scares my wife and I greatly. He seems to be happy enough but we are very concerned. additional factors? I have some food allergies and others in the family have pet allergies (we have two dogs and one cat) Both of our families have a history of excema in babys/children. He is eating baby food and similac formula. He is already taking an antihistamine and benadryl Does anyone have any suggestions? Anything that you may have tried or heard of? Thank you.View Thread
I have an 11 week old. He sleeps pretty much all day and fortunately, all night. How much should he be sleeping during the day? Is this normal..our routine looks like this: wakes up at 6-7am - eats, stays awake till about 9-9:30, sleeps for 2 hours, wakes, eats, stays awake for another hour, sleeps again...and so on....I try to have play time and am trying to get him to start grabbing toys but thats not going so well...please tell me this is ok...View Thread
So I have a 5 1/2 month old Son. Just wanted some feedback about how he is sleeping an whats normal for his age.
We got to the point where he was sleeping pretty much through the night, But he has been teething since he was 3 months. We put him down for the night anywhere between 8-9:30pm. He is on solids now which is really nice..not feeding him every minute. So the past few weeks now he has been waking up anywhere from 2am-4am for a night feeding an a change. He does eat an I change him and he goes right back to sleep, He waking ups in the morning between 6am-7am. I feel that he should be sleeping through the night but he still wants to wake up and eat. So is this normal for his age or am I doing something wrong. ThanksView Thread
My daughter is really healthy weight wise and we started rice cereal and fruit at 2.5 mo of just a bite or two and have slowly introduced a few more fruits and now squash. We are really careful to wait in between introducing new foods to watch for reactions. What can I say, she LOVES to eat and the food has had NO bad reactions at all. Would giving her a little fruit or veggie and cereal 2x a day be too much at this age? She still gets enough formula, drinking about six 6oz bottles in 24hrs (sometimes more rarely less). She is a chunky monkey so there is no concern with lack of nutrients...at 3 mo she is about 15lbs and was 8.5lbs at birth. Thanks for your ideas, suggestions and input. My older son is 12 so it's been a loooong time since I've done this!!! View Thread

My 3 1/2 month old gets fevers about once a week, They can range anywhere from 99.8 to 102..(and she does run a little high for her base reading but not that high) she does sleep alot when she has them but otherwise she acts pretty normal- she eats, is smiling.. you can tell that she is not 100% but it is nothing extreme. I have brought her in a couple times to a Childrens ER and they were not too concered because she appears bright and still alert. I brought her in to her regular doctor and she said that next time she has a fever she wants to check her bloodwork but she did not appear that concerned either. She is not teething (that i know of) Has anyone else had issues like this? (i may be overreacting as i am a first time mom) THANKSView Thread
