Question

How long should you breastfeed?

I am pregnant with my first child, who is due in August, and I plan on breastfeeding him. I'm very nervous about it, but I know that's what's best for the baby. I only get a 6 to 8 week leave from work. How long should I continue breastfeeding him?

As long as you, realistically, can. Breast feeding is great! To know, even weeks after your baby is born, that every cell in his/her body came from/and was nurtured by you, is SO satisfying! The more you nurse, the more reliable your milk supply will be. Filling one bottle & storing it in your workplace fridge in the middle of your work day should be feasible. Take it home each night for the caregiver to warm up the next day. It can be challenging, but give it a good try, anyway. Good luck, & enjoy!

Congratualtions! The first thing you should do is not set yourself up with expectations. Yes its great to be able to breastfeed, if you can, but its not a big deal if your not able to either. Let your baby tell you and just see how it goes. My first baby was never breast fed and was never sick till she got into daycare. My second baby was breast fed for a couple of weeks and then I stopped because he was jaundice. The doctor said that formula was better for him to flush it out of his system. Both my children are happy and healthy. So good luck on either choice you make.

Congratulations on your little one and on the decision to breastfeed! The American academy of pediatrics recommends breastfeeding for at least 1 year and as long as you desire after that. That being said, you should do it as long as you have a desire to. A great website for information and support is kellymom.com. Also, I went back to work after 6 weeks and my son is now 5 months and we are still nursing. You can pump while at work to continue your breastfeeding relationship as long as you would like!

I use Palmers everyday especially right after bathing as soon as you dry off, this helps retain moister in your skin. I can't say that I don't have any stretch marks however the Palmers lotin helps to fade them and makes your skin very soft. Use it everyday, twice a day works even better. Also Stivectin SD is a miracle worker however expensive. Use sparingly, it REALLY works.

I personally started using Palmer's cocoa butter as soon as I found out I was pregnant and used it faithfully twice daily until my scheduled c-section. I didn't get a single stretch mark anywhere until 2 weeks before birth. After that, they seemed to pop up daily until my stomach was practically covered. I did ask several doctors and they all recommended Palmer's but also said that stretch marks were genetic and it may not prevent or even help them. I've since tried several other products and haven't been real satisfied with those either. Everyone's different so maybe they would work for you!

answer 7
That's not true. Anyone who researches this topic will learn that stretch marks are genetic. Your skin type alone determines wether or not you will get stretch marks. Using lotions such as Palmers will improve your skin's elasticity but will not guarantee you to not have stretch marks. If you do get them the best way to get rid of them (without laser surgery) is to use Vitamin E oil or Mederma. This still is not guaranteed to get rid of the stretch marks but it will at least diminish the appearance.

When my wife first became pregnant, she worried about the stretch marks. After being told this a few times I finally got the clue to do some research. I found that palmers make lotions just for pregnant women. When it was time for our next doctor appointment, I asked the doctor what type of lotion she recommended and she said Palmers. I went to work that night and picked up some of the Palmers lotion found in the health and beauty aids section and my wife loves it. She has yet to get a single stretch mark at 8 and a half months and loves the smell and feel of the lotion. I hope this helps you in deciding which kind of lotion to get.

I used Palmer's cocoa butter and I have limited stretch marks from my pregnancy. Most of my stretch marks are in places that I hadn't been putting the lotion on, like my inner thighs and butt(go figure!) But my belly is completely stretch mark free. If you are going to use it to prevent marks, you must use it faithfully, everyday, and make sure you cover all areas that might stretch. In getting rid of stretchmarks, Most of that is just time. They will fade to silver, but never go away completely. You can use the cocoa butter to help speed the process.

When my boys were infants, I would get in the tub and lay them on my legs.The water was not high enough or hot enough to hurt them. I would cover the bottom half with a wash cloth just in case. I washed them that way and their dad would come in and get them, dry them off and dress them while I finished my bath. Or you can lay them on a thick towel on the counter, cover the bottom half to keep them warm, wash the top half and then cover the baby up at the top and wash the bottom. Just have everything there before you put the baby up there.

easy, buy a plastic dish pan and fill with warm water, add a little johnson baby soap and just let them sit in it while you hold the head. they love it. I did all my 4 kids like this. also getting them use to having water run over their head teaches them to control their breathing. When ready for the family pool just blow into their face and then emerce. they know to hold their breath automaticly. My peditrition taught me this, and now all my kids swim like fish and I dont have to worry.

When I was in the hospital, the nurse gave me a lesson on bathing before we went home. We were told to give a bath by washcloth until the umbilical cord came off. Soaking in the bathtub can make it take longer to come off and difficult to get dry, which could harbor bacteria. Used one of the cheap tubs with a sling with no water until it came off, then submerged her. I still use the sling to help keep her from slipping. I just attach the foot end to the side of the tub rather than the other end.

I have two little ones. When my first was born my thought process was 'bathe and lotion everyday.' What I learned from my pediatrician and from experience is that many people overbathe their newborns. When they are very young once or twice a week is more than enough and you can skip the lotion. You will see that their skin is still baby soft and they still smell great. Babies have different systems from adults. They are not excreting the same odors that necessitate daily bathing for adults. Spongebathing is also a must when they are first born. Those plastic tubs are not made for newborns. And if you do follow this advice, still wipe their face, and of course private areas, thoroughly every day. You will need to bathe him or her in the sink or baby tub until they are able to sit well. You will probably switch to the bathtub when they are close to walking. My daughter is 9 months and I am switching her now. You should consider a tub with a sling. I've found a sling or mesh area holds the little ones better. Some tubs have a built-in themometer.

Honestly, I bathed my newborns with sponge baths lying on a waterproof pad until they were about 6-8 weeks old. Then I bathed them in an infant / toddler tub. If you have a big enough counter, you simply place the tub on the counter or a large table and you're good to go! Sinks can work too but since they are slippery you will need a rubber maid pad or a thick folded towel to place under the baby. Keep in mind that babies can't be submerged in a tub until the umbilical cord falls off. You may need to experiment with several different ways until you find the one that works for you and for baby. My son wouldn't get into a tub until he was 5 months old! My daughter was easier and had no issues with it. Everyones different and has different likes and dislikes. Good Luck!!!

I've raised 4 kids and have tried everything. The sink is too slippery and bending over the bathtub is back breaking. I found that a rubbermaid/sterlite type tub (the ones you use for storage) makes a great baby tub for baby. It can be set up in the kitchen away from drafts and is the perfect height to not hurt your back.

The higher sides keeps baby warm and when the baby is old enough to sit up, he/she can not fall out and the sides are a perfect baby hand hold.

My youngest is 15 now and the same tub I bathed her in now stores her baby keepsakes.

To be perfectly honest I bathed both of mine in the tub from the start. I just got in with them. I never used one of those plastic mini tubs. When they got older and could sit up I bought the ring with suction cups and used the tub or kitchen sink. i liked the sink because it was big, at my level and it had a sprayer which was very convenient. Oh, and fyi, you don't need a diaper genie. They don't really contain the smell and a nightly trip to the garbage with a shopping bag is just as convenient. Good luck!

This might be a little late, but I have a plastic baby tub with a "shower". It is just a spray attached to a hose. The plastic is easy to clean and has non-skid surface and comes along with a sling for newborns to lie in. Once baby is lathered up, you can drain the water from the bottom and use shower to rinse. This way you are not rinsing with the same dirty water that you just washed with. Loved it, and will be using again soon!

I never used the sink. I've always used a plastic baby tub. For the first little while, you are only going to sponge bathe him until his umbilical cord falls off and heals. Also, if you are circumcising, you will need to wait until it completely heals before setting him in an actual bath of water. Make sure to ask your pediatrician when he/she thinks they look healed enough. After that, the most important things you want to remember is to never ever leave your baby while he is in the tub, keep a hand on him at all times for the first few months, and watch the water temp. You might have to play with it a little bit to find out what he likes. We thought our son hated baths, but we just had the water too cold. He prefers 97-98 degree water. I would definitely recommend getting the book "What to expect: The first year." It has helped me a lot and will give more details on how to bathe. Good luck and congrats!!

Some of the best deals I've seen are on Black Friday - but I'm not a crowd person myself... So I'll be waiting until "Cyber Monday" (the first Monday after Thanksgiving - or in this case, Dec 1st) to see what deals I can find online.

I don't think you'll see much more of a reduction in prices despite the economy. Retailers are expecting a rougher holiday season and so they're setting prices fairly low as it is to try and spur holiday spending.

But if you do go out, definitely make sure to wear comfortable shoes and to spend time in lines!

I think Black Friday is going to be your best bet... the deals are notoriously sweet. However, do your homework and make sure your are getting the lowest price (check store ads store to store). Walmart will price match black Friday ads too! If you are looking to buy seasonal items wait until after the holiday. That's when holiday items go on DEEP discount. That is the time to stock up on lights, decor, wrapping paper etc. for the following year.

I'm personally not planning on going out shopping on Black Friday. Not unless there's a crazy deal that I can't get online. If there's something that you see in the ads on Thursday, and you think it's worth it, I'd go for it.
If you're worried about prices dropping closer to Christmas, make sure you save your receipts! Check the return policies of the stores that you plan on shopping at. Many of them have at least a 14 day return policy that allows you to bring your receipt in and get the price difference back. I'm sure there will some great deals closer to Christmas, but they may or may not be on the same products that are on sale for Black Friday.
There are a lot of great deals out there already! Hope you find what you need!

I hate dealing with crowds on Black Friday, but my experience is that you can't count on prices going lower. If you really want something that's on sale on Black Friday, you should go out and buy it now.

If the store you're shopping at has a price protection policy (meaning the store will refund you the difference if the price drops in a certain time period), you can sign up for a price change alert at www.priceprotectr.com, and they will email you if the price goes lower.

One last option is to check the store website before you go out to shop. Many Black Friday deals are also available online, and shopping from the comfort of your own home sure beats facing the crowds!

majority of the stores will have sales starting at 12:01 am. Hot items will go on sale at 5am. the queve lines for the hotlines will open at midnight they will hand out wrist bands at 2am and you will have to be back in line at 5am to pick up your merchandise. It is best to call you local store thought to make sure they they have not had to make any changes to the basic plan. Also you should be bale to go onto walmart.com to get a map of your local store that shows where all the hot items will be located and to see they ad and what time certain items will be on sale. I hope this helps

Hi SunnyState1983 - There's actually a cool event happening this year for Black Friday called the Open House. Most stores will be open on Thanksgiving, so starting at midnight on Nov 26, our stores will host the Open House, where you can shop for toys, video games, apparel and home goods. Then at 5am, you can shop HDTVs, laptops, gaming systems and cameras. Hope this helps!

Question

Walmart.com PayPal cash back - for real?

I got an email which appears to be from PayPal, claiming that if I make a $50 purchase from walmart.com using PayPal with my specified account, I will get a $20 cash back into my PayPal account. How do I verify the validity of this offer?

Yes the is for real and it is going to only selected Paypal customers and be sure you read it carefully and click on their link to shop. I used mine to buy a PS3 game and saved the $20.00 it took a week or two to get it and they sent me an e-mail saying that they had deposited the money in my account. So I checked it later and it was their.

The offer is legit. My offer was for $20 cash back when you make a $100 purchase. I made the purchase using the link provided in the email and I received the $20 cash back a few days later. If you login to your Paypal account and click on the special offers link, you will see all the cash back offers available to you.
The "Walmart Associate" above is in error.

I received the same email & tried to make a purchase today; however, Wal Mart wouldn't accept my paypal payment, any of the paying options. I've sent a query to both paypal & walmart to notify them of the issue. It would have been nice to use before Christmas.

The offer is legit, I received it too. It's only going to select Paypal customers. You can always contact Paypal's customer service if you ever have concerns.

Please read the email carefully! The offer is legit, but you have to follow the steps to receive the credit (no purchasing gift cards, you must receive an invitation to get the credit, you must use the email address that received the email, etc etc). Also, PayPal is not going to credit your account until sometimes around January 15, 2009.

Yes, it's probably a real offer. It worked for me. Just remember to pay through your paypal account.

Make sure the link in the email has a URL that starts with something like this:

http://email1.paypal.com

I have Paypal and never heard of such a thing. There are companies that pretend to be Paypal out there trying to get your information by sending "official" looking emails, etc. If in doubt, contact Paypal directly. If it was me, I'd delete it.

Question

Is it okay to start giving my baby cereal at almost 4 months?

My son is almost 4 months old (he was born 3 weeks early though) and I breastfeed and supplement sometimes with formula. Is it okay to start giving him a little bit of cereal in his bottle at his night time feeding? He is always hungry and still wakes up several times a night.

I know a ton of poeple who have given their babies cereal from birth for just the same reason. The only "no, no" with this is to never leave him alone, especially not alone in his crib, with a bottle! And i'm sure you know that... just make sure the cereal is not a thick oatmeal or it will make him sick. and as stated before, make sure the nipple is big enough for him to drink out of but not big enough for him to choke.

My son is 4 months old right now and he gets up a least one time in the night. I have made a routine for him. I give him a bath about 7:00 or 7:30 let him play for a few mins. Then get him dressed for bed and play with him a little more. Then we sit and I rock him while he eats. I have also had to learn to not jump up everytime he cries at night b/c sometime he will cry just a little but will go back to sleep. My son doesn't eat like he should he eats about 4oz every 2 to 3 hours. I tryed to give my son cereal to help him sleep through the night it didn't work but I do give him cereal(rice) a couple time a week to get him really to baby food. I hope this helps.

I forgot to add that breastmilk has far more calories and nutrients than cereal does. Solids during the 1st year are for practice only, so that when they need to start taking in most of their calories from solids instead of milk, they won't balk at the textures/flavors. But for the first year, a baby gets the majority of it's nutrition from milk. If your baby is hungry, nurse him more. This will fill him up more than a tablespoon of cereal.

I was told as a rule of thumb that its ok when ur baby can sit up on their own... but enfamil has a new formula thats especially for bedtime. It helps the babies sleep through the whole night. I would try that first if ur baby isnt sitting up yet.

I gave my now 2 1/2 year old rice cereal at 3 months with a spoon before bed. It did not help him sleep any longer. After a while his Dr. suggested a bottle of water during the night. They don't like it as well and will realize it is not so great to wake up. My son would have slept longer if I didn't keep waking him to make sure he was ok.

I think it's ok. Just make sure you don't add too much. The milk should still be able to flow through the nipple. You may have to make the hole a little larger, but not big enough that the little one chokes. If you don't think your baby is getting enough from the milk, go for it. People have been doing it for years.

It is ok to give your child cereal if he can hold his head up and sit up, however; with that said, it will not help him sleep any longer at night. And pediatricians do NOT recommend putting cereal in bottles because it is a serious choking hazard. I have a 8 month old and I have put cereal in her bottle just to slow the flow of a nipple that goes too fast for her but never without holding her to make sure nothing happens and not until about 6 months old. At 8 months old she still wakes up at least once a night. And my nearly 3 year old woke up throughout the night until he was 2 and we had to find a method that worked for us to put a stop to it...BUT at 4 months old they are not expected to sleep through the night. On WebMd.com's parents board you can find that the expected sleep time for a 4 month old is approximately 4-6 hours. It will pass...I promise, but your baby is too young for you to force it to happen! And when it does happen you'll still wake up anyhow and wonder why he hasn't woken up, then panic thinking something happened and have to get up to check on him anyway!! Haha, I still do that. Good luck and I hope he starts sleeping better for you, welcome to motherhood!!

I've heard that you're not supposed to put cereal in the baby's bottle. I would call your pediatrician to see if its OK to start rice cereal early - but not in the bottle.

Maybe your son wakes up a lot at night because he can't self-soothe and relies on being fed in order to fall back asleep. Establishing a bedtime routine and teaching him to self-soothe might help. I recommend the book "Sleeping through the Night". It really helped me with my 4 mo old.
