Hi everyone, First time mom here.. working mom.. My little one just turn one a couple weeks ago we have switched her to horizon cow whole milk. And she has been doing great. She still wakes up once at night to have one 4oz feeding. Now that we are giving her cows milk... it’s so hard to wake up warm her milk in the middle of the night since both my husband and I work full time jobs. I was wond... More
My LO will be 1 on Wednesday 😍😍😭😭😭😭😭 I have been slowly reducing her formula and putting more milk in her bottle to get her used to milk. My goal is to also stop the bottle at 1 and just do sippy cups, but it just dawned on me that she may not go for that. I tried giving her 1 of her bottles today in a sippy cup and she wouldn't take it. When I put it back in the bottle, she drank it. Any ... More
It’s like my 6m old knows and does everything to avoid sleeping and/or bottle feeds when it’s before bed time. Also when we put her down for the night she will cry for what seems like forever. Once she is asleep she will randomly jolt into a whine, do that and cry. And than go back to sleeping. I’m worried and frustrated I’m not doing things right. Should I just let her cry wen I know she’s fed... More
My daughter turned 4 months on the 5th of April and at her 4 month appointment our pediatrician suggested we start solids. She’s a rather big baby, 17lbs and 24.5 inches long (her dad is 6’7 and i was a big baby at her age too). Our daughter doesn’t last very long in between bottles and our pedi said it will help her feel fuller for longer. I’d love to start her on solids so she can last longer... More
My daughter just turned one and I’d like to start weening her off of her formula slowly. What’s the best way to do this while still making sure she gets all the nutrients she needs. Also, she’s very attached to her bedtime bottle, but I’d like to put a stop to that too because I’d like to start brushing her teeth before bed but I don’t want to start until she is done with her bed time bottle....

Hi! I have a 15 month old girl and she has been given a bottle in her crib to help her fall asleep. I’m trying to get away from that. I’m thinking of trying a new routine like a bath then a bottle and read to her then brush her teeth and put her down but I’m curious as to what everyone else does. I really want to incorporate books because she won’t let me read to her unless she has a bottle
My daughter has been bottle fed since she was about 6 weeks old, and lately it seems like she’s struggling with drinking her bottle. she grunts and squirms and acts like she’s choking. We use the Dr. Browns bottles and she hasn’t had a problem with them until lately, we’ve tried feeding her in different positions and nothing seems to work. Any tips?
When do babies learn to hold the bottle by themselves? I feel like he should be doing it by himself by now, but he won’t touch the bottle if I’m holding it. He won’t take it out of my hand, and he gets frustrated when he can’t figure out how to drink it. Is it too early? If it’s not, what do you suggest? He’s 8 1/2 months.
My daughter is 4 months and has been exclusively breastfed. We are having trouble with getting her to take a bottle now that I'm back at work - she basically plays with the nipple with her tongue or else puts up her hands to push the bottle away. So the past few days she's essentially fasted for 9 or 10 hours until I'm home again. Our first child had no problems nursing or using a p... More
As of a couple days ago, my LO is refusing her bottles at times and drinking around 15oz a day. She is on the highest nipple size, so I know it isn't that. She is a bit constipated, but we are giving her prunes to help. She is eating her regular foods. She may be teething, but this is the only sign at the moment. She is sleeping through the night, so at least I know she isn't hungry. Co... More
We are at 10.5 months, and baby is very independent trying to feed herself and drink herself. The funny thing is...she doesn’t realize she needs to tilt back to drink! She finally started drinking from her sippy cup at home (used to only drink from a regular cup), but she still has not realized the “tipping” required for sippy is the same for bottle...she grabs her bottle and then gets frustr...
