honeyspider replied to topic 11 week old baby not poohing

Diluted pear juice is much more gentle on a baby's stomach than prune juice. My DD would also only go every 2-3 days from 5 weeks old even though she was fully breastfed, and even now at nearl...

honeyspider replied to topic Help with training for 'number 2'

Hey there, I'm toilet training my nearly 3 yr old DD and have similar issues as you. She has often taken herself to the toilet in time to do no 2's but just as often just goes in her pant...

My 3 yr old DS was recently constipated for the first time ever, and it was due to him not drinking enough as it suddenly became hotter and warmer. We got Parachoc from the pharmacy, it is a stool ...

It's a well known fact that most birth plans do not go as planned, so you're doing the right thing by informing yourself on all your available options. With my first child I also hoped fo...

honeyspider replied to topic Excessive crying when baby. How wat is not that he/she's older? Like maybe 6months, 1year, 2years old

Some babies just cry more than others, it's nothing to do with how you behaved during pregnancy. My DS is 3 now and he cried a lot as a baby, and it went beyond the 3 month mark so don't ...

honeyspider replied to topic Being bombarded by people admiring baby while out??

That happened to me with both DS and DD and DD still steals the show now when I go out with her (she's 19 months old). It's mostly old people though and I'm glad she can be cute enou...

My DD was like this from newborn until a few months ago (she's now 19 months and was breastfed). Some babies just don't need to go every day and unless it seems to bother them you don...

honeyspider replied to topic So lost regarding TT!

How old is she? Sounds like she's probably not really ready yet. Consistency is the key though, When I tt my DS we stayed home for about 3 days and I put him in undies. I let him choose the un...

honeyspider replied to topic Was a great sleeper till now!

I agree with what Kazzav has said. Does your DS get enough energetic play during the morning? Maybe also try and shorten his nap so that he is tired by bed time? My 3 year old DS also still has a n...

honeyspider replied to topic bananas and chai seeds?

I assume you're talking about CHIA seeds? They do need to be soaked first before you eat them otherwise they can be a bit dehydrating, hence why you're having problems. It is common to be...

honeyspider replied to topic breastfeeding my 5 month old

Breastfed babies can't go as long between feeds as formula fed babies, so yes it's normal for a 5 month old to feed every 2-3hrs and to not sleep through the night. Once babies are used t...

Don't forget your baby is a newborn still and NEEDS to be held most of the time in order to feel safe and secure. Of course it's hard when you feel like you're tied to your baby all ...

honeyspider replied to topic baby led weaning - what is your experience?

I would wait until she is able to sit by herself as she should be concentrating on the food and not on trying to stay upright. You can start at 6 or 7 months, there is no rush as every baby is diff...

Hi, my DS was 8.9kg at 4 months old, he was soooo chubby. He was also fully BF and just a greedy guts I think. He was 3.5kg at birth and on his first birthday was about 10.5kg. So don't worry...

Don't worry too much, she will do it when she's ready. Just be patient and definitely don't force her or use bribes. Some kids just take a little longer so just keep encouraging her ...
