I was so excited to see some activity on this thread! But I'm afraid that macbump has replied in the wrong place.
I bought a gallon of organic milk on it's sell-by date because it was 50% off. So I saved $2 but we only drank half of it before it started to turn. I am too frugal to be happy about pouring out organic milk, even if it was half off. The only thing I can think to make with sour milk is biscuits, but I'd have to make about 8 dozen to use up all this milk. Any ideas? Can you freeze milk?
Try not to worry about it too much. My dd was hardly eating any solids at one year. I remember this because I stressed that she might not eat any of her birthday cake (you know, the cute cake-all-over-the-face picture for the grandparents?) Are you spoon feeding him entirely or letting him feed himself? My 8 month old has gone gangbusters with feeding himself - cherrios, pieces of banana, well-cooked carrots, etc. Are you giving him jarred babyfood or mushed up...
Hi Larastheme, You have done a great job to use the Lactaid or SNS for 3 months. Your dd is probably long past having any potential for nipple confusion. If you do at some point decide to use a bottle then you can BOTH bf and bottlefeed. I was able to do this for 16 months with my son. The hardest part for me is always dealing with what I just KNOW others are thinking of me when they see me doing both. My almost 8 month old ds nurses and then follows up with a...
We just bought a '98 Honda Odyssey and I love it. It will fit 2 in the third row and 3 in the second row. If you are going the economical route then a used Honda is a great choice.
Hi Steph, I just got back from vacation so that's why I haven't responded. If I am reading your question right... my ds usually bfs for about 10 minutes before he has drained the breast and then I give a bottle. I try to bf before every bottle, but the last two weeks vacation kinda screwed with that.
I have CD all three of my children and the only one left in diapers is 6 months. We are leaving today for a 2 week trip to the beach. My dh and other two kids just left in the car to drive there, the baby and I are flying down tonight. The diapers and the pail would not fit in the car! I can easily take the diapers with me in a bag and check it at the airport, the pail will have to stay at home. But then I thought it would be so "easy" to buy some disposables and...
It sounds like she really took that doctor's advice to heart and is now convinced that she can't do it. Maybe if she went to a lactation consultant before the birth, who could give her some good advice, not just a 'no'. Then she might feel more confident. One negative comment, from a doctor or family member can take a long time to get over.
since I bottlefeed and breastfeed (usually one immediately after the other) I think that there are some folks who just don't know what to think about me. But no one has EVER commented or asked. It is a real blessing to finally have the confidence to not care what anyone thinks and just do what I need to to feed my baby, but I couldn't tell you exactly how it came about. My ds just got over an injury to his mouth that he got from a fall. For a day and a half he would...
It has really made my day to read all of this positive energy! soccerchic, for the woman who said that she was only planning to nurse for 6 months, I would say, "But at 6 months is when it really gets easy!" For the woman who said she didn't have enough milk at 6 weeks, "Good for you for doing it as long as you did. I was only able to nurse my son for 16 months by supplementing with formula about half the time." (This is true for me.) It's good to read about the...
