    BG Kids Thread!

    I've noticed that there seems to be a lot of parents on BG now so I made a thread for people to post pics of their kids, have discussions, ask questions, etcetc. Even welcomed to post pics of your nieces/nephews and... grandkids. (Is there any grandparents on BG?)

    I'll start off with a pic of our daughter !



    And a question:

    Is it normal for a 2 month old to eat nearly 40 ozs of formula a day? It seems like we feed her every hour if she's not napping/sleeping. We've read that babies who sleep a lot cluster feed when they wake up. At first it was about 30 ozs but it's been slowly increasing. We would love to get her on solids but she cant hold her head up steadily yet.

    Such a nice big brother, passing along my original DS to his lil sis once he got his 3DSXL for xmas.

    My wife's not a gamer, so this kills her.

    Daughter just turned 2 last week, son turns 5 in June. Crazy how time passes- I quit FFXI when the first came along.

    Cassalot, 40oz seems very normal. She should be drinking about 4-6oz every 2 hoursish with a longer break between feedings at night.

    You wouldn't know that though because you've demonstrably never picked up a book nor educated yourself on the matter. Let me guess, overweight housewife?

    Pretty sure that's normal for a formula baby. They tend to go through growth spurts in threes (3 weeks, 6 weeks, 3 months, 6 months, etc.). So you will see a lot of cluster feeding. Corben is going through the three months one atm and my tits are so sore. ;_;

    I wouldn't rush to solids btw. I know when my daughter was born they said to use the cereal at 4 months, then start solids at 6. Now I am reading to just skip the cereal and start solids at 6 since cereal has like zero nutritional value. They initally had people do it to help kids learn how to eat with the spoon and the cereal is easy on their tummies. But kids don't really need it to train so might as well skip it.


    Plus it's a lot messier...lol

    A growth spurt makes sense.. I did a little research and I read that sometimes when a baby is going through a growth spurt they get real fussy at meal time. Has issues latching, or just cries while trying to eat. She been doing that a lot lately. Guessing she's going through the 6-8 weeks spurt. Makes so much sense because she did do this the first month. We're very fortunate she's still sleeping through the night and not waking up to feed.

    I can't imagine breast feeding when she's eating this much. Much props to you ksandra. And honestly to anyone who breast feeds. It's such a dedication and i really give it to people who can do it with no formula. I am not one of those people lol. I tried but having a c section-- the cramps during breast feeding it really hurt my incision.

    @Galois: congrats! :D

    As others said, the amount of formula is appropriate, I wouldn't be concerned about over feeding unless she starts having issues keeping it down, but it is too soon to introduce solids.

    Thanks, I am going through this issue atm where he now refuses to take a bottle. I used to have to supplement, but then I was able to produce enough so stopped with the formula. Went out for a bunch of hours while the in laws were watching him and gave them pumped milk. He wouldn't take any of it. We're trying to reintroduce it so I can go back to subbing, but so far he just screams to high heaven.
    Whenever we do I think I may throw some formula in there at night. I hear they sleep better that way, and so far he still wakes up like 3 times at night.

    hahaha that would be so awesome!

    I gotta figure out what I am doing for halloween this year for the two of them. Initially I was planning on her picking what she wants, but she may not be able to express herself enough for that. Friend wants to do a pair costume with her so we'll see. I was thinking of making my boy Willy Wonka, but I am going to wait another year to do it so I can make the costume look better since he'll be bigger (plus standing up).

    hmmm how the fuck would I make that recognizable...

    Also, that may piss the friend off if I do a pair with my kids and not his. He asks me about it all the time, he really wants her and his kid to match, I promised if she doesn't pick something we would do something together. hmmm too bad howard hughes isn't really recognizable either.
