  • Forum Thread: What are you favorite new foods to feed your baby?

    When my youngest was first learning how to eat table food, I loved introducing new foods to him. In particular, watermelon was a fun food to introduce on hot summer days.

  • Forum Reply: Re: Feeling Judged

    I too, planned to exclusively breastfeed. It seemed like when I was pregnant, many older women criticized my decision to breastfeed (especially my MIL who believed the baby would starve!). I read every book I could get my hands on and got lots of advice from friends and family. After I gave birth...
  • Forum Thread: Feeling Judged

    Hi! I'm new to these boards as well as to mommy-hood altogether. I just had my son a little over 3 weeks ago (he was born February 15th) and though my original plan was to exclusively BF, I ended up deciding to pump and supplement with formula. In the process of doing so, though, I found an incredible...

    For various reasons, my oldest children (now 7 and 5) were bottle fed. I had no success with the first and gave up after a week.

  • Forum Thread: How do you measure the time between feeds?

    How do you measure the amount of time between breastfeedings? I have been nursing every 2 hours from the time I start feeding. For Example, I start at 7am and he nurses for about 45 mins.

    I just recently gave birth to identical twin girls on October 31. We started breastfeeding in the hospital and everything was going good.
