Go to your local WIC office they will help with formula, baby food and cereal for the infant, depeding on the age of the other children they may also help with that. Go to the food stamp office for help with other food, also ask for a referral to a local food bank, all of these services are in place to help when you are in a position as you are. It is hard to swallow your pride but you have to do it to take care of the family. I have had to do this and it kills me but I know that I have to take care of my little one more than anything. Good luck and HTHView Thread
Stop feeding him in the middle of the night, at this point this is becoming a habit, try to leave him in his bed, pat his back, make sure that he isn't hurting or anything and let him go back to sleep. If you continue to feed him in the night he will not learn to go back to sleep on his own. HTHView Thread
Right now my daughter gets a bottle in the morning for "breakfast" then she gets a bottle around 9 or 930, then "lunch" which is baby food, around 3 or 4 in the afternoon she gets another bottle, then she gets a bottle at night before bed.View Thread
it could just still be her body getting rid of the hormones or if you are breastfeeding it could be those hormones but remember that peach fuzz isn't hair it is pretty normal, even if you look at a little boy he will have peach fuzz on his face from a very early age.View Thread
Ok so my SO thinks that a 3 hour nap in the afternoon is too much for our 7 month old... what do you think? Generally she will only nap like this if she doesn't take a good morning nap, like yesterday she only napped in the morning for about 30 minutes but then took a 3 hour afternoon nap. How do I get him to understand that she needs lots of sleep to help her grow?View Thread
