  • The Case of the Missing Letdown
    This one is for nursing moms. Most breastfeeding moms feel a "letdown" of milk while breastfeeding, particularly for the first few months after giving birth, and particularly in an oversupply situation. The letdown sensation typically decreases, though, once the milk supply and the baby's needs get more in sync. This leads many moms to wonder if they don't have enough milk. However, realize it is completely normal to stop feeling letdown, even if you are producing plenty of milk.
  • The End of Swaddling
    Many babies love to be swaddled. If you've got a little swaddle addict on your hands, you might wonder if you'll end up swaddling a toddler or preschooler. Don't worry excessively; babies can transition easily from being swaddled, but only when they are ready. Take away the beloved swaddle too soon, and you'll be in for many long nights. How to tell if your baby is ready? Try swaddling with one or both arms out, essentially "weaning" your little one off the swaddle. If your child can roll from back to belly, though, it's definitely time to end swaddling, even if baby doesn't think so.

  • The Lessening of Gastrocolic Reflex
    Many babies have a strong gastrocolic reflex. These are the babies who poop every single time they are fed -- even in the middle of the night, unfortunately. If you have one of these babies, you're probably wondering if you'll need to take out a loan just to afford diapers for the next few years. But take heart; typically the gastrocolic reflex lessens over time, and your baby will probably stop pooping after each feeding sometime in the first several months of life. Don't confuse this change with constipation. It is perfectly normal for a baby to go from pooping numerous times a day to having only one bowel movement every few days.

  • Try a Bib, But Don't Insist on One
    Life is certainly much easier (and cleaner) if your baby is willing to wear a bib during feeding time. However, some babies just seem to hate the restrictiveness of bibs. For these babies, you'll have better luck skipping the bib and just changing to a fresh outfit after the meal. Speaking of bibs, you know those tiny fabric "drool bibs" you received at your baby shower? They don't work well for feeding. Replace them with the larger, waterproof, machine-washable bibs that are much more effective.
  • Two Spoons
    This is an age-old trick, popular for good reason. Around six months or so, most babies get extremely grabby. They'll swat at the feeding spoon (and anything else that comes within reach) and grab hold if they can. To help satisfy baby's desire to grab the spoon, use two spoons -- one for you and one for baby. This technique also becomes useful when baby begins to try to feed himself with the spoon.
