  1. Re: Has anyone had sucess with giving formula to BF baby who doesn't like it?

    Re: Bottle during the day/BF at night

    My son will only nurse at night and I'm thinking about letting him drink some pre-mixed soy formula in the day since it is the only formula I have found that he will take. Glenn is 10 months old...
  3. Re: 10 month old grinding teeth--I can't stand it anymore!

    Yeah, I went out to the car to get the biter biscuits out of the diaper bag. He doesn't really like them but I thought I'd give them a try. I don't like the biter biscuits either because they make...

  5. Re: Has anyone had sucess with giving formula to BF baby who doesn't like it?

    Update:
    I've scrapped the idea of trying to get him to take formula or expressed milk. I'm just nursing him approx 5 times at night and not pushing it on him at all during the day because he just...

    Re: Help - bleeding cracked nipples

    I had the same problem and did eventually supplement because the pain was real bad. I had his latch checked out over and over again and they said it was fine. I just think some of us have more...
  10. Re: Keeping milk supply up when Baby starts self-weaning

    Here is my experience:
    My now 10 month old does the same thing. He only nurses 2-4 times--before his nap, before bed and once or twice (occasionally more) during the night-time. He still wakes up...

    Re: Milk Supply going down.. mixed feelings

    You shouldn't worry unless your son wants more than you can provide. Just give him what you are able to pump for day care and then let him drink water or water/juice if he wants more to drink and...

    Re: Terrible teething pain

    He had an ear infection last month and finished his meds. He hasn't shown any definite signs that his ear is bothering him again. I wonder if I should take him in to make sure.
    Thanks

    Re: Is my 10 month old trying to wean?

    Amy,
    I tried expressed milk and he doesn't drink hardly any of it so I end up throwing it out. I don't pump well most of the time so I'm discouraged to pump. I can only pump when he is sleeping and...

    Just an update:
    By continually offering a sippy cup at meals with formula instead of a little water he has started to drink a little--about an ounce. He likes the cheap plastic disposable sippy cups...

    Re: Time between feedings?

    At 5 weeks I was lucky to have an hour between feeds even at night. You are lucky if you have 3 hours. My son is refusing to nurse now and he is only 9 months old. At 6 months he went every 3-4...
