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
Hi moms! So I have a 7m old son who REFUSES to drink from a bottle. I have been breastfeeding him since day one.. he gets the concept of how to suck a bottle but he won’t drink breastmilk from a bottle. He will take a tad bit of water or juice, and just a few tiny sucks at that. He mainly just chews and bites and pulls the nipple. I have tried the tommee tippiee Breast like bottle, nano baby , ...

My LO is 3 and half weeks old and we just transitioned him to full formula from being full breast milk since he was born. With breast milk, he pooped almost every single feeding but now with formula he poops maybe once a day. During feedings though he is constantly pushing which frustrates him because nothing comes out. Is this normal? When he does poop it’s not hard. Is this his tummy getting ... More
Newborn has just started to eat every 1 and 1/2 to 2 hours from the start of the feeding and is eating between 2 and 1/2 to 3oz of breast milk. Anything we can do to stretch this out? Is this temporary?
I can only produce one ounce of breast milk per pump so I add some formula to the same bottle to feed my 1 week old. I feed her at 45 degree angle and make sure there’s enough in the bottle . It seems she makes the squeaking gulping noises so I’m worried she takes in a lot of air- and she gulps down super fast. I hope that’s normal?? She seems super hungry and can gulp down 1.5 oz in 10 mins... More
We switched to formula on Wednesday to supplement since I couldn’t breastfeed the appropriate amount, per the hospitals recommendation. Since Wednesday my baby hasn’t pooped. No signs of distress really, she’s definitely gassy and we feed her 1oz every two hours. Still waiting nervously . Anybody go thru something similar in the early stages?
We are currently struggling to get our (almost) 14 month old to drop her bed time bottle. She’s down to a bottle of whole milk in the AM (due to our schedule to get to daycare) and the same after dinner but before bed. I’ve tried offering more solids at dinner, moving dinner later, and even offering warm water instead (thinking she just needed that suckling/warmth combo for her final calm dow... More
My LO turns 1 the end of the month!! Right now our feeding schedule is as follows: 730am breakfast 930am 8oz bottle formula 12pm lunch 2/230pm 8oz bottle formula 430/5pm dinner 730pm 8oz bottle formula Maybe 1 or 2 small snacks in there somewhere Should I continue this same pattern when she turns one but instead of an 8oz bottle of formula make it 5oz bottle of cows milk? Thanks!
She’s my second. She was introduced baby food at six months and it seemed as if right when she was getting used to baby food she started teething and wasn’t all for baby food anymore. Any suggestions on when and how to wean off the night feeds?
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
