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
Here is the situation. We've been struggling with a constipated baby, per the last few posts i've made. We've added probiotics, gas drops, gripe water from time to time. The pediatrician approved prune juice to test so we've been doing one ounce of juice added in two half portions throughout the day. It's been helping - but not without struggles! Poor girl cries and cries a... More
My baby has been drinking formula for 2 weeks now. Similac pro comfort (purple container). He’s been good with the formula but now when he eats, he starts crying and pushing out the bottle when it gets to about half way of the feeding. I try and burp and hold him to give him a little break and continue the feeding but as soon as I put him in the position to feed him, he starts crying franticall... More
