I am currently supplementing for 3 week old cause my breastmilk is not enough. How much formula are you using for this age? I feel like he’s eating to much or gaining to much weight. Currently giving 3 oz every 2ish hours. He’s already been back to birth weight since week 2.
Has anyones LO not poop for more than day and half almost two days or more? My LO is eating normal, he’s peeing normal, sleeping normal and stomach doesnt feel hard. Ive tried massage stomach, warm bath, switched formula and thermometer in rectum but still hasn’t had bowel movement. He does keep farting but no output... feeling worried. I am currently pumping but not much so he gets supplemente... More
My son loved eating food since we first introduced it to him, but now he’s not even wanting to drink his formula anymore! I know he should drink it until his a year old but he won’t take it in a bottle or a sippy cup. He’ll drink a little but after a few seconds he gets up or pushes it away. We’ve tried changing the nipple size but he still has no interest (we’re at the biggest size now). Shoul... More
My son is EBF,I feel like my milk might not be enough for him anymore,he is waking up more to feed during the night.He is 4 months,I have been thinking to start him on some solid food. I know some pediatricians recommended to wait until 6 months. When did you start solids? Did you notice a difference in sleep after ?
Hi first time mom here. And I’m having a hard time getting my 16 month old baby girl to eat anything all she wants is a milk bottle all the time. I’ve tried different foods different sipping cups fruit and she is determined not to eat or drink anything other than the milk. She will literally sit in the high chair for maybe 20 minutes at the most and still eat nothing. How can I get her to eat a... More
I have been breastfeeding by my 5 week old and she has been a strong sucker since birth. Occasionally I have had to give her a bottle (when my milk ducts were completely plugged early on I had to pump and feed her, also there are times I am out of milk and she is screaming because she is still hungry). When I feed her with a bottle she sucks so hard she either chokes or she starts to just nibbl... More
My little one will be 23mo Jan 4th and was still getting a milk bottle before bed and when he gets up in the morning. Lately all he has pretty much wanted is milk bottles during the day, he cries when I put it in a sippy cup or if I try to give him juice in a cup... he insists on milk in a bottle. He was doing good with sippy cups during the day. Has anyone else experienced this? Is this norma... More
Day 3 after birth. We were discharged last night from the hospital. My breasts are so engorged as I have chosen to not breastfeed I am reaching out for HELPFUL suggestions to relieve pain other than ice/heat compresses and pain medicine as I have already been doing those.
Anyone else?? I feel like such a crap parent for letting this continue. She drinks milk and water from cups all day long. I know all about the dental risks of letting this continue. I’m going to take a 4 day weekend and just end it but I’m chicken. I keep putting it off. I feel like we’re the only ones still drinking bottles at night. Ughhhh.
... nor does he look like he even wants to. He would cry before he puts his arm out to grab it. Which is why he still isn’t on solid foods yet. Helpppp
My daughter is almost 14m and still takes a bottle to sleep - 2 bottles total a day since she’s down to 1 nap. I’ve been wanting to start to wean her off but we just decided to take our first family vacation. It’ll be a 6hr flight and her first time on the plane. When we leave she will be almost 15m and we are going for a month. I’m torn on keeping her on the bottle and weaning when we get back... More
My MIL keeps saying low key remarks about me not wanting to breastfeed my twins this winter.... I’m perfectly content in my choice and it mostly just irritates me that she isn’t, I’m not going to change my mind. Anyways- just wanted to say.... if you don’t want to breastfeed, then don’t and you’re still a bada$$ mom.
My baby is now a toddler, just turned one this summer. He still drinks breastmilk supplemented with formula (trying to use up our stash) through a sippy cup. Occasionally, perhaps once every few days or weeks, he will spit up. Not much at all, and he doesn't seem bothered by it at all but still: Is it normal for him to still be spitting up at his age? If so, then at what age can I expect sp... More
