This kid has learned how to hold his bottle when I feed him, and at times he’ll push the bottle away, and then pull it back in. Back and forth and back and forth! He’ll also eat in pieces, 1 oz at a time. And then he’ll gnaw on the bottle nipple instead of eating. It’s just all over the place! He hardly ever eats a whole bottle in one go. The only time when it’s easy to feed him is during his n... More
My 11 month old has been EBF until now. I’ve had some work transitions and haven’t been able to keep up my supply. This week, we will need to start supplementing with formula (I confirmed with his pediatrician who doesn’t want us to go whole milk until we actually hit 1 year mark). So we thought we’d take the opportunity to start him on it over the weekend to make sure that he liked. We did the... More
I’ve been strictly breastfeeding my son since he was born anyway he’s 4 months now and I’m fed up with breastfeeding. It’s been a constant struggle to maintain my milk supply and I don’t know what to do anymore to stop fighting this constant battle. I want to keep breastfeeding but it’s making me feel like a terrible mother for not giving my baby enough milk and I’m going insane trying to find ... More
My son just turned 1 & his doctor is wanting me to start trying to get him off of his bottle. does any one have any tips/tricks as too how I can make it easier on him. Because his bottle is definitely a comfort thing for him in the middle of the night more than anything.
I have a 4 month who still feeds every 2.5-3 hours during the night. I heard that formula makes babies sleep through the night easier cause it’s more filling, or something. I feed him breast milk at 8pm and when he wakes up around 11:30pm, I feed the formula (3oz), but the Baby was still waking up as usual (2:30ish). I’ve only tried a few nights, but is this something that develops into longer... More
Hi mamas. I’m a FTM and my little boy was always so good about taking a bottle of breast milk in the morning while I slept. My mother would watch him from 5am-8am so I can get some sleep. Then suddenly a week before turning 3 months he STOPPED taking the bottle. He just plays with it and maybe takes 2 sips. I’ve tried different bottles and different nipple flows but nothing is working!! He goes... More
Right now I e been fortunate enough to take her to work with me for a few hours here and there but soon I will need to be more committed. We have Avent natural bottles and have tried several others including Nuk. She doesn’t even try to suck them she just sort of pushes it around with her tongue
We’ve transitioned our little meatball from formula to whole milk. He’s used his sippy cup for water for a few months now. But he refuses to take milk from anything other than the same Dr Browns baby bottle he drank the formula from. We’ve tried a few different styles of cup and bottle with no success. Any tips?
Hi Families! So I'm pregnant with my 2nd. My 1st did NOT take the bottle which sucked big time for me. I'm determined to have this next one take the bottle. Any advice and bottle suggestions would be appreciated and life changing..you guys rock!
My baby girl will be 3 months old May 13. Curious as to how much formula she should eat in a feeding , right now she's eating 4oz every 2 hours. She's on gerber gentle, but she acts like she's still starving. She has acid reflux and does not take medication for it, so I don't wanna give her to much formula and trigger it. Please help me out, first time mom here. Thanks in advance!
Help! My baby who’s turning 4 mos next week & he started to decline on his feedings just this week. He’s a big boy so we’re used that he can finish a total of 40 oz a day (6 oz X 8 feedings) based on his weight. But just this week he slowly would not finish a bottle or even not drink one. He drinks more milk during the day as he sleeps longer at night now. Btw, I give him breastmilk & s... More
When introducing powdered formula to babies, some mothers talked about mixing breast milk with the formula. Do they mean they use breast milk to replace the water that’s suppose to be mixed with the powder? Or, make the powdered formula with water, and then add breast milk? Thanks!
Ok so my baby just turned six months and he has gotten constipated. The thing is he has been on the formula since he was born which is simulac neosure because he was a preemie. All of a sudden now it makes him constipated. Why? And how can I keep his stools soft? He is afraid to go because it cuts him and that can be painful. Did his digestive system change??? Help!
