are you pumping your breast milk or are you giving him formula. if it's formula then it's because he hasn't had anything else and he would rather have the milk from mommy. i had that problem with my 2nd child. with this baby, he'll tried eating out of the bottle from the get go, i started pumping from when he was 3 weeks old and i just started going back to work a week ago. he's 2 months old today he has never had to have formula and i plan to keep it that way!!

my little one is going on 11 months and i stopped giving her binky to her. is it too early? i was told that as soon as they start getting teeth or a lot of teeth that it is time to stop. we've been doing good for about a week and a half to two weeks and i was at my soon to be mother in laws house and she said that it was too early. is that true? i gave it to her last night because she wasn't feeling good, will that hurt or help me? she was really fussy. if i stop her from using her binky, should i stop her from drinking from a bottle too? she's learning how to use a sippy right now. thanks for any advice!!View Thread
have you talked to a lactation consultant? maybe she isn't latching on correctly causing her not to get enough milk. i know i had troubles with my dd and after a couple of months i ended up having to just give her a bottle full time. good luck!! good milk vibes to you!View Thread
