  • Ugh some people are awful! I'm sorry that someone was so rude to you. No matter what the cause for your choice, people should keep their judgements to themselves. Still, your situation is even more sympathetic than most. Forget the rude jerk who said that to you, don't let her have any power in your life. You are obviously stronger than she.

  • I'm so sorry. Some women are simply rude and believe the only way to do things is THEIR way. I suppose there's only one road to california, but on my map, the last I checked, there were dozens, so you have to find what works for you. Not everyone can or will follow the same path. If something works for you and you and baby are happy, then that's what you should always do. :)

    Ok, now for the real question...what was it by the way? :)

  • I'm sorry you had to experience that. I often see people that should really think before they type.

  • Because some women think whats best for them is best for everyone. Their way or the highway. Anyways what was the apple juice question?

  • We were told to give sugar water or Karo syrup with water. Juice isn't really good for babies because of the sugar. Both sugar water and karo syrup worked great for my son. He was constipated a lot and had a lot of stomach problems. Finally at 6 weeks we switched to Enfamil Gentlease and he never had a problem again. At 5 months we switched by to Enframil Lipil and now at 9 months he's been fine!

  • it should, 1 oz a day is not much at all. you could also try baby suppositories, I had to keep them on hand for my son b/c he had a lot of trouble going until he was a few months old.
