In this post I mentioned that I use water to hold Samuel off for awhile, before his next feeding. Some of you commented saying, you didn't think this was a good idea and asked who told me about this.
Well, no, my pediatrician didn't tell me to do it, but my 3 sisters, who combined have 7 children, and my 85 year old mother, who raised 8 children, all recommended that I use it. The water is from our Brita Water Pitcher, so it's filtered, and it's warmed slightly. He only gets, maybe, 2 ounces a day, but it lets him suck and keeps him from screaming. Sometimes it will put him back to sleep for a few minutes, so I can stretch out his feedings.
