Baby is 15 days old. Due to bf-ing troubles, we have been feeding him pumped milk from a bottle. Friday night we switched to all breast. Now he doesn't drop off to sleep immediately after a feed like he did for the 1st two weeks. [more inside]

I'm confused about how to go about providing health insurance for my unborn baby upon it's birth. I am on Medicare, so the child is not covered. I do not qualify for Medicaid/SCHIP, and most individual plans will not cover a newborn from day one. [more inside]

Yet another my-baby-can't-sleep question. We've tried every recommendation we've seen online or got from the pediatrician and nothing has worked. Need more ideas or reassurance that it's normal and will pass someday. [more inside]

When the time comes, I'd like for it to be possible for me to stay at home for at least a year after a baby is born (I am not pregnant yet).
I guess this is two questions. First, how much should I have saved up to care for baby for the first year and secondly, how much should I have saved up to cover myself for the year? [more inside]

So many great pads available to soften hard mattresses, but nothing seems to go the other direction. What are some creative ways to make our cushy pillowtop mattress firm enough for safe cosleeping with a new baby? [more inside]

Our 21 day old daughter is tongue-tied (ankyloglossia). The doctor wants to do the clip (lingual frenectomy) under general anesthesia by default, and we're uncomfortable with that. Is general anesthesia appropriate by default for this? Should we be concerned?

My nephew/niece is due any minute now. I'm planning a "do not open until 2019" sealed box. Besides newspapers of the day and screenshots of a few websites and bearing in mind that I live in Belgium, what would you put in his/her time capsule ?

We have a healthy 6 week old girl. We've come to a point where the quality of life for Mom isn't very pleasurable in terms of breastfeeding. We both wanted to breastfeed our child but we're approaching 'last resort' and transitioning to formula. I would like to help Mom as much as possible so I'm looking for some advice from others.

I'm flying tonight from Boston to Pittsburgh with a one month old baby. I know not to bring any liquids in my carry-on luggage with me, per the news today. Will they let me bring the car seat on with me, or will I have to check it? What else should I expect, in terms of flying with a newborn?

We have a 3 week old son. He's in good health and is pretty even tempered but sometimes he doesn't seem to sleep well. If he's in my lap, or lying on my chest, or whatever, he sleeps like, well, a baby. Same goes for my wife. Any techniques to get him to sleep by himself? [more inside]
