My daughter is 3 1/2 months old and we moved her from the bassinet to the crib 2 weeks ago. At that point I stopped swaddling because she moves all over the place at night, so the blanket doesn't do any good because she just wiggles out of it. I was also afraid she'd suffocate herself. We just put her in pajamas now because the weather is warm. In colder weather I might start putting her in a zip up sleeper in addition to her pj's.View Thread
Thank you for posting this. My daughter is 11 weeks old and she has been crying and pulling at her ears while I feed her her bottle. I asked my husband last night if he thought it could be her ears. Now that I read this I'm going to atleast bring her to the Dr to get checked out. Had you not posted this I might have just continued to think I was making too much of it. Atleast there is no harm in checking.
Something you said is alarming to me though on a side note. Do people often give you a hard time for not breastfeeding? I feel horrible that you felt you had to add that comment to the end of your post! It's no one else's business whether you bottle feed or breast feed, I can't believe how many people out there feel the need to give a pregnant woman or new mom a hard time about their choices! Grrrr.View Thread
