    No need to wean or to stop night feeds. I did not give my children juice or water much at this age. They did eat table foods of their choice. I brought them to the table for each meal and...

  13. Re: My kid doesnot leave BF even after 2 yrs

    For your sore nipples try lots of Lansinoh as suggested, no need to wash it off since it won't hurt your baby or your milk. Nipples are self cleaning so soap is not necessary. I would use cloth...
