Regressing with Baby Food

We started my 7 mo old on cereal right before 5 mos and she loved it. a few weeks later on veggies and she loved it. now at 7 mos she all of a sudden stopped and will not let anything we try to give her into her mouth. even when hungry she just tightens shut and turns her had and gets mad. she'll put a biter biscuit in her mouth so it's not that she doesn't want the food--i really think it's b/c we're trying to give it to her. i read on a peds website that this is uncommon and she should be evaluated! has anyone ever had this happen? ...

Nursing in Public

Hi ladies! I'm looking for tips on how to nurse discreetly in public places. I have a 4 1/2 month old little boy and nursing at home is going great but I have the hardest time whenever we go out. I just dont know how to do it! I have a nursing cover (The Mommy Cover by Joia) but it doesn't seem to help much. My belly and/or back are always showing and trust me that is not a pretty site! On top of that, my little boy is so squirmy and he's always popping on and off the breast and I have to help him latch on again which isn't very easy...

Transitioning from Nuby Sippy Cup to Hard Spout

My son(11.5 months) has used a Nuby sippy cup since he was 6 months old to drink water and juice. He holds them well and loves to drink from them. I have been a bit disappointed, though, because all of his sippies have started to leak like crazy over the past month, so I figured it would be a good time to transition to another cup since I can't stand the leakage wanted to transition him to a bigger cup anyway. I purchased the gerber sippies with handles and a harder spout(still a bit soft). It has a valve to control leaking, but my son will...

Switching Daughter to Solid Food and off of Bottles

My daughter will be a year old on Monday and I'm trying to get her used to solid food. She will eat just about anything off of our plates for as long as you will feed her. However, if I put her in the highchair and feed her solid peas, then she gets tired of eating them before she is full and then she chows down her baby food. I'm guessing this just takes time for her to get used to eating solely adult food? My other concern is that I'm not sure she should still be having bottles. I am still on formula until I go to the doctor and he...
