    Re: Working moms

    We supplemented for a few days, so DD was introduced to the bottle early on... but at 10 weeks refused that particular bottle, sending us into try-every-bottle hell. If you have bottle feeding...
  3. Re: Back to work in Jan - need strategy

  5. Re: pumping vs frozen vs partial weaning

    Thanks all, I love the idea of doing yogurt vs 4th bottle as she loves yogurt (straight plain, which confuses dcp :lol ). When you say "yogurt drink" do you mean a kefir-type drink?
    Would you put...
