Hi Ladies, I have a few questions. The first is about cereal. My DS is now getting 4tbl spoons of cereal for breakfast and 4 for dinner. I just returned to a new part time job and began pumping for while I'm away. I have been mixing the cereal with breast milk but am using so much that I am afraid I will run out. Can I mix the cereal with water or does it have to be breast milk or formula? If I mix it with water, can I use Brita filtered water or does it have to be bottled water?
On a different subject my LO nurses every two hours which is ok with me but he tends to use me as a pacifier also. How can I break him of this habit? He does not like a real pacifier. He tends to chew on them instead of sucking. This is very difficult at night because he wants to be with me if he wakes up and doesn't know how to put himself back to sleep. His doctor wants me to let him cry it out but I don't believe in that. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance for the help.
