I’m having a problem getting my 16 month off of a bottle when it comes to milk. He will drink water from a sippy cup/contigo water bottle but when it comes to milk, he refuses to drink it out of anything but his bottle. Any suggestions? I’ve tried about 5 different sippy cups and nothing seems to help. He also refuses to drink his milk if it isn’t warmed up... any help with that as well?
For those of you who found that changing baby’s formula helped with bad reflux, what formula worked? My 6 week old has terrible reflux and is upset most of day and night. We’ve tried the usual fixes like sleep on an incline, burp, keep upright after feeding, etc. but it hasn’t worked. I’m going to see if the pediatrician thinks a Rx is necessary, but I’d like to fix it without medication. He i... More

My son who is now 8 months old, has always ate 3 to 4 bottles a night. I read something on google about night weaning and how I should start at 6 months. Anyone have any suggestions? He usually only goes back to sleep with a bottle. I’ve tried feeding him more throughout the day but every night he wakes up at the same time to eat. More of a routine then hunger. Is he old enough to sleep without... More
My LO is 4 months old and she was consistently eating about 30-31 oz of formula a day, usually four 7 oz bottles and a 2-3 oz bottle before bed. The past couple days she doesn't seem to want to eat, even when she wakes up (she sleeps about 12 hours without eating). Today has been an especially low intake day, as she has only had 19.5 oz and it is almost 5pm. She is acting normal and doesn... More

My 2 year old son stills wakes up in the middle of the night. The ONLY way I can get him to go back to sleep is to give him a bottle. I also have a 1 year son and they share a room, so I end up bringing the 2 year old in my bed because the 1 year old will wake up when the 2 year starts crying. My husband hates when I bring him in our bed. Please help. I need tips, advice, etc. On how to get him... More
My baby is 2 months & was doing good with the bottle & breast. But randomly 2-3 weeks ago she just stopped taking the bottle & always wants my breast only. I tried using dr.Browns bottle, tommee tipee bottles & the preemie nipple like the dr said but it didn’t work out. I need help getting her back on the bottle for I can be able to leave her while I’m at work again.
Anyone have any experience with this formula? My son will be one in less than two weeks and we are trying to transition him to cow's milk. I heard using this for a couple of weeks or so eases the transition. Thoughts? Oh, he has been drinking Enfagrow Toddler Transitions since he was 8 months or so and tolerated it a LOT better digestively than Enfamil Infant Premium (Gentle Ease).
Just found out I'm pregnant and really don't want to tandem nurse, any suggestions? Hes a boobie fanatic and I know this will be hard. He doesnt like whole milk, ive tried mixing it with a yogurt drink to make it a little sweeter but still no luck. He feeds to sleep still and comfort nurses a lot during the day.
We've been buying our child (17mos.) organic milk pretty much since she started drinking milk around 1yr. Has anyone else made the switch to something else like nut milks? It's just getting expensive, I got laid off and I can't imagine I'm the 1st to think a child could go completely off the cow's milk and on an alternative.
My son will be 10 months in a couple weeks...when should i start introducing almond milk? I'm not going to be giving him cows milk. He's not shown any intolerances, i just prefer him to drink almond milk..it's what husband and i have. He's still EBF with table foods for his meals in between nursing.
So I have a three month old whom I’ve been breastfeeding and nursing. I exclusively nursed her the first month and then started pumping soon after. I know it’s pretty soon, but nursing hasn’t been as productive as it was at the beginning. My supply seems to have slowed and I feed her more formula now than breast milk. I want to nurse as long as I can, but the formula has been a big help since ... More
So I started feeding my son almond milk. I’m giving him less formula. Only once in the morning and at night. Sometimes one in the afternoon/evening. He is 10 months old. And he is loving the almond milk! No side affects, everything seems to be going great! I was nervous at first but he will be 11 months in two weeks so I think he will be fine . Our Pediatrician actually wanted our goal to be on... More
