  8. Re: Can you please show me what your nursing "schedule" looks like for the day?

    All babies are a little different. My youngest is 2, but when he was 12 mos. old, he was just transitioning from being an every 2 hour nurser during the day to spacing his feedings out a little...

    Re: Now she wants a bottle?????

    I think it is normal play, and it won't do any harm.

    However, with my own kids, I noticed that my DS#1 started to get really curious about baby bottles after he had weaned at age 2....maybe he...

    Re: weaning at 6mo?

    Re: tasting "non-baby" foods (like cake)

    Well, I think we're all different as mommas on this issue. For dh and I, we didn't allow processed sugar and junk past their lips as long as we could control it. No cake, no candy, no frosting, no...
  14. Re: Why cow's milk is better then formula????

    I agree and disagree with this I guess. Organic unpasturized cow's milk could be seen to be more natural and untampered with, however, regular pasturized cow's milk might suprise you in just how...

    Re: Is this child-lead weaning?

    If you're having a hard time weaning, you could try just limiting a session here or there. If you're due in November, you probably have 7-8 mos. left in your pregnancy, and actually, I think the...

    Re: Is this child-lead weaning?

    As long as you aren't refusing him at other times of the day if he asks, then its his decision. 15 mos. is young, but some babies truly do self wean at that age.

    Re: Bottle larger than 5oz?

    More than likely, the doc is confusing formula feeding with breastfeeding. Lots of breastfed babies never actually move beyond the 4 oz. mark on the bottle. It doesn't mean they're getting less...
