Weaning Between Formulas

Weaning Between Formulas

How did your baby react when you first introduced formula into his/her diet? Chances are there was a bit of gassiness, diarrhea or constipation. This is more common than you think due to the natural fact that our bodies need time to adjust.

Transitioning off of the Bottle

Transitioning off of the Bottle

Transitioning off the bottle begins early. You might be wondering why it’s necessary to ditch the bottle.

The Best Baby Bottle

The Best Baby Bottle

Whether you are breastfeeding or formula feeding, there’s a good chance you’ll need a bottle at some point.  Even though my first baby was a champion breast feeder, I had to pump and leave bottles for his nanny, when I went back to school.  Unfortunately deciding on which bottles to use is not easy with so many in the market. Since I wanted only the best for my bundle of joy, I knew that I wanted to use glass bottles.  Not only are glass bottles better for the environment; it does not contain any harmful chemicals such as s BPA,...
