To Breastfeeding Moms

I have two sons that I chose to use formula with, I'm at peace with that choice. I'm very uncomfortable, however, about doing any breastfeeding in public. No offense, but I think it particularly offensive when ladies choose not to cover up while breastfeeding in public, like at a resaraunt. With that said, I am pregnant with baby number 3 and would like explore the option of pumping only so that my baby has the benefits of breastmilk without having to breastfeed in front of anyone. Walk me through it- how big of a pain would it be to just...

Introducing Solids to Daughter, Digestion Is Tough

I have a 5 month old daughter just starting out on some solids. We prepare fresh fruits, veggies, oatmeal and rice. She also enjoys cherrios and graham crackers. Obviously her digestion has changed, but should she labor with bowel movements? I think this may be the reason she was up crying every two hours tonight. Anyone have the same experience and any suggestions? I will discuss with our family doctor next visit.

Target Timeout Questions

Hi! I have a 23 month old son and a 3 1/2 year old son. We do timeouts at home (for the older son) and they work great, but today while shopping at Target, my older son was acting up. I warned him a few times but he kept on. So I tried to give him a time out at Target but it didn't work. I had my other son buckled into the cart, and I sat my older son in the red chair that they have in guest services by the computer monitors for job applicants. I told my older son he was in time out for 3 minutes just like at home. However, he just...

Caffeinated Replacement for Soda?

Hi there, I hate coffee, but...I need a little caffeine in the late morning / early afternoon to give me a little jump. I know, I know - it's terrible to do, to me again when my kids are consistently sleeping through the night! ;) So, I have been having one diet soda over lunch. I know how terrible it is for me, and my 3-yr-old son is asking me about what I'm drinking, so I'm wondering if you knowledgeable mamas out there might have suggestions for me to change to something healthier - for both my benefit and my son's -...

13 Month Old Not Interested in Solid Food

Hello I have a 13 month son who has very litle interest in solid food. I have tried feeding him solids since 6months. He mostly spits everything out or will eat a few bites and then lose interest. I thought at first it was just the texture of purrees. He will eat Cheerios and graham crackers. Sometimes I can get him to eat bananas, scrambled eggs, beans, and cut up string cheese. And that's about it. I nurse him exclusivly and it seems that is what he prefers. But I know he is hungry because he wants to nurse frequently. My pediatrician...

HCG Weight Loss Program

Has anyone heard of or tried this new weight loss diet? It is supposed to help you loose up to 30lbs in 30 days. I am really considering this, but I am kind of scared with trying something new. I have had 3 children and my youngest is 8 months old. We are not having anymore kids and so I really want to get back down to what I was 5 years ago. I tried the salads for every meal diet along with some excercise for almost 6 months and did not drop one pound. Everyday is a struggle for me. If anyone has ideas or knows anything about this...
