My LO is turning one (!!!) and he has already started weaning off BM. Any advice or strategies to help complete his breastfeeding phase? looking for which feedings to drop, how to deal with potential soreness, how many days or pace, etc. Emotionally, i have been getting ready for this for several weeks. It sure is hard but he’s showing me the way already and i want this to go as smooth as poss... More
My son has a cows milk allergy so he is on Nutramigen. He is turning 6 months in a free days and I just want to put him on straight almond milk or supplement his formula with it since the formula he is taking is getting out of hand pricy now that he is consuming more of it. Anyway. Question is has anyone done this transition and noticed any reactions being it good or bad?
Baby had last bottle at 3pm, and now it’s 10pm... I pumped at 9pm to be safe.... and baby is still not interested in eating... 🤷🏻♀️ words of encouragement, similar stories, etc.?
My milk supply is crashing. I can either feed my five month old with: - Frozen breast milk from when he was 0-4 months old. Maybe add vitamin drops. - Formula. Maybe add vitamin drops. I want the most nutrients for my child. On one hand, breast milk for a younger baby supposedly isn't as nutritious for an older baby. On the other hand, formula supposedly isn't as nutritious as breast... More
My daughter is over a year now and I want to transition her to whole milk. Question is did you do cold milk, warmed it up? Did you add any sugar or anything?
My newborn baby is a week old and whenever we feed her, burp her for 15 minutes and put her down she spits up milk through her mouth and nose. How can I resolve this issue? What are good remedies, or over the counter medicines for this? The doctor recommended burping the baby very well, using a cool mist, and do not put the heater on in the room. Thanks!
My milk supply is dwindling and I’m almost out of my frozen stash so I’m looking into transitioning my daughter to formula. So far no allergies to solid foods she’s eaten - oatmeal cereal, apples, avocado, bananas. When I was breastfeeding I ate dairy and peanuts so I am hoping she won’t be allergic to those when she is introduced for real. Formula is expensive! So looking for your recommendati... More
I just switched my 7 month old to formula from Breastmilk and even since then she just gets so tired out of the blue and will lay over on you or anywhere and fall asleep. She has never done this before so I was just wondering if formula could cause that? She has been on formula for about 2wks.

Currently my son is drinking Enfamil Enspire formula. When we chose this formula it was because he was a breastfed baby but as my milk supply decreased I had to begin supplementing, we chose Enfamil Enspire because we were told it was the closest thing to Breastmilk. He is now exclusively formula fed. Anyways, we recently bought a container of Enfamil NeuroPro bc he's 6mo old and goes thro... More
My 7month old was on breast milk and only pooped 2x a wk. which is ok for breast feed babies. But As of Saturday She has been strictly on formula and hasn’t 💩 yet.

Any other mommas who dislike this part of motherhood? I am due with baby 2 soon and am completely dreading breastfeeding and pumping. I know it’s best for my baby but I had a bad experience the first time and felt like I was chained to the pump trying to get my supply up 12 hours a day. Eventually we were forced to supplement which did wonders for my emotional/mental health as well as finally a... More
After today my frozen breast milk stash will be gone, and my baby will need to just have formula all day.

He is currently eating solids he gets a little fruit and cereal in the morning, some veggies at lunch and a little more fruit... More
