  2. Re: Hesitant about doing full fledged solids

    I'll be honest, I'm a little selfish and love the nursing time. I don't push solids and encourage dd to breast feed when she's hungry. DD is 10 months and eats solids mostly as snacks (cherriors,...

    I personally haven't had issues, but I could understand overfilling leading to leaks. Water and water based liquids expand as they freeze.

    introducing cereal

    The box says to add one Tbs cereal to 4-5Tbs milk. This doesn't look much like "solids" to me. I feel like I'm just spoon feeding milk.Is this the way other moms start out? How long/often to you...

    Re: Nipple shield

    The ns never impacted milk supply. I'm at 5.5 months using it with dd. It is a pain to wash it, but with flat nipples it's been less stressful latching. Occassionally if we're running an errand...
