Hello, I'm Emily. I am 30 years old and became a mom in December. I am a stay at home mom, which is really new to me. Thank you for introducing yourself. I am looking forward to getting advice on here.

have you spoken with a lactation consultant? unfortunately, a lot of pediatricians don't support breastfeeding or don't have enough current knowledge to be much help, they are likely to take the easy way out and recommend you switch to formula. My son was born on December 20th at 8.5 pounds, he's now 17 pounds. The pediatrician recommended I start cereal at the end of February, I did for a few weeks until I read more online about how hard it can be on their bellies. So I held off until the past few days when he was showing me more signs of being ready. Applesauce and rice cereal and bananas could probably help with the BMs, just a couple tablespoons a day. If you're worried that she's not getting enough milk, perhaps you could pump for a few days in order to measure the amount... my little guy went through a spell recently where he wasn't latching on right any more, I ended up with sore sore nipples and he wasn't getting as much food (like drinking out of a squeezed straw). Getting fed frequently on demand and making sure you empty one side before switching (screw fifteen minutes per side scheduled feedings, I usually let my guy nurse for about half an hour on one side and make sure to compress towards the end until he lets go (unless my nipple is too sore), then the next feeding i switch sides). One of the most common causes of breastfeeding problems is a foremilk/hindmilk imbalance, which can hinder proper digestion. I feel so bad for when you finally have a diaper to change, if my guy skips one day, the next BM is usually a pretty bad mess, I can only imagine one week!

Hi Bekah. Firstly may I apologise for not responding earlier. I haven't been able to get online.

Really nice to hear from you.

I have a little boy, Jake, who is now going on 10 months old. It has flown by! Already thinking about what to get him for his 1st birthday. I don't know about your baby, but Jake has so many toys so it's hard to find something he hasn't already got!!

Hi! My name is Colleen and I am a mommy to 2 kids and to my baby girl who is an angel.

I had a baby girl Lacie May 9, 2005 but she became my angel two days after she was born. I had a placenta abruptio when I was 39 weeks and had to have an emergency c-section, we both lost alot of blood and my baby girl just couldn't take it.

I have my son Colby who was born dec 12, 2006 and is now 2.5 years old. He is very energetic, cares alot for others, full of smiles but at the same time hes in the terrible twos :)

I also have my baby girl Kylie who was born dec 29, 2008 and is now 7 months old. She is such a girly girl! Full of smiles, an additude, determination to try to do what everyone else is doing (like walking..she tries) and she loves her big brother so much!

The thing is for both Colby and Kylie's pregnancies I found I was expecting near my angel Lacie's birthday. For Colby I found out right on her 1st birthday I was pregnant and for Kylie within her 3rd birthday. I do believe she is watching over both my kids.

But anyways....I am on maturnity now but I do work at an old age home for the city as a dietary aid. I am 28 years old, engaged and just enjoying time with the kids. We hope to have two more but not just yet lol. Hope to talk to you all as we all go through the same things ;)
