    Hi there!

    Per my pediatrician's OK, I have started to give my 11-month old small amounts of cows milk (whole, organic) with her meals in order to let her tummy start to adjust to it and prepare...

    Re: Confused..don't know what to do!

    My daughter is 11 months, and if I recall, it was not until about 4 months that I started to feel "easy" with the nursing. I know many moms who quit within the first 4 months, and I remember saying...

    Re: cow's milk vs. toddler formula

    I agree with the poster who said, "you are so close," I am in the same spot, and feeling ready to wean, but I know I need to hang in there for one more month.

    In the meantime, I have been given...

    Re: Finger foods

    Baked sweet potato cut into squares, steamed zucchini or broccoli tops cut up small (these are favorites of my 10-mo-old). Whole grain waffles with a little butter are also a big hit with her.

  7. Re: When can I start giving table foods?

    I am with pp - as soon as my daughter started directing her own spoon to her mouth, I started with table foods. Herbs and spices are fine, but watch out for salt. It is in most of the foods we eat...

    OMG, Freeze it!! It is so nice to have a back-up supply - you never know when you might need to get out for a few hours, and it is lovely to be able to leave hubby or nana in charge without worrying...

    Re: night - Pump or wake him up?

    Oh my God, definitely PUMP!

    I say, NEVER wake a sleeping baby. Pump once, and then once you have a freezer supply built up, try not to pump at all and YOU sleep through the night as well. Get as...

    Re: nursing to sleep...bad for teeth?

    God, I certainly hope not. I know that letting babies go to bed with a bottle of milk/formula is bad for their teeth, because it sits on them all night as they suck. I guess the same could be true...

  18. Re: How can I tell if it is a plugged duct, or what?

    Looks like this is old news now, but I had something to add. I got a plugged duct several weeks ago, I believe from wearing an underwire sports bra while working out.

    I put a heating pad on it...
