Two part thing. Finally started the bottle weaning process today with my 17-month old (preemie). Went cold turkey and it was absolutely miserable for all of us. Trying not to stress myself out about how little of liquids he drank compared to normal. He was screaming his head off for over half the day.

Bought the Ergo 360 for my firstborn and hated it; felt like it was putting a huge strain on my lower back even on short walks. Have been trying it again with baby #2 but am still not a fan. I want to avoid shelling o... More
