    Re: Renting Pumps

    syringe feeding ?

    If I'm supplementing with the syringe, is it bad to let them just suck the milk out of the syringe? Does that defeat the purpose because it is so easy to get the milk out of the syringe?

    Re: 12 mo, bls throwing food on floor

    Great, that is kind of what I was thinking but when is a developmentally appropriate time to teach her otherwise? Or when should it stop on its own?

  20. Re: Amount of milk/dairy with extended breastfeeding

    I agree on the yogurt thing, but I do give her plain greek yogurt, or natural fresh yogurt from our organic market. I would never give her the commercial flavored stuff...it really grosses me out!...
