    Re: 8 months of pumping and freezing.... Gone

    The LLL literature (Womanly Art of BF etc) says it should be okay for 6 months so long as it's...

    Re: 8 yo DD wants to try BM

    :ita Agreed. Your infant's needs will vary from day to day/feed to feed any way. If you give the BM in increments you won't have to worry about waste. In my experience however, my LO would tend to...

    Re: oatmeal?

    I find porridge helps, as does anything else that's warm and damp (soup, stew etc).
