To eat or not to eat

     We're doing naked play time as I blog, I am once again glad I do not have a boy child.
     On the 17th, she goes in for her four month doctors visit. At this time I am going to talk to them about starting food. She has an interest in what we eat, even more interest if it's a cookie. We don't have a dining room table, so at dinner time she is either in someone's lap or in her bouncy chair.
This past week at bed time, it's been rough. She will nurse an hour and still be hungry. I give her 2oz BM bottle & then she will nurse again. At that point, she will get milkdrunk and let me put her to bed. During the day, she will be hungry about every hour.
I know 4 months is early, but my mom said that about the time we were eating our fists, she let us have cereal. Jake says no to food at 4mths, but I feel like I am going insane.
     I am on Domperidone to boost supply, oatmeal for breakfast, fenugreek and blessed thistle..yet it doesn't seem to be enough right now. At least she should be gaining weight, she's getting a milk guy on her.
....lastnight Daddy also rubbed his finger on a cherry & let her suck the juice. She LOVED it!


  1. I would wait. Honestly.
    It will not help with the cluster feeding and it will not help her sleep better.
    She should at least be sitting up unassisted and 6 months.
    It will get better, hang in there! <3

  2. Talk to your doctor or caretaker, because each kid is different. Nathan was a bigger baby who pretty much could not be fed just milk at 3 months. He needed more or he would starve so he got very liquidy baby cereal that very quickly progressed to full on food.
