Schedule for Breastfeeding?

EDIT AFTER READING SOME RESPONSES: My baby WILL NOT take a bottle/sippy cup/etc. Absolutely WILL NOT. I have tried - believe me. Also - he was eating 5 jars a day when he was 6 mos old - but he had to stay in the hospital for 6 days and didnt feel like eating solids. After that stay - he went down to two jars a day and just will not eat anymore. It is a fight to get him to eat the two jars! I am afraid to give him anything like puffs because he wont eat anything with texture and everytime i try puffs, etc. he chokes because he...

Gerber Baby Food Plastic Containers

I noticed over the weekend that Gerber Baby food comes in plastic with a recycle code of 7 - which has been reported to contain BPA. I've emailed the company and for the time being have switched to brands (Earth's Best) that come in glass containers - but really miss the variety that Gerber offered.

Generic vs Name Brand Formula

What is your opinion on generic vc name brand formula? Unfortunately starting 2 months ago I could no longer breast feed (medical reasons) my now 4 month old. I have been using Enfamil, but it's just so darn expensive. I was looking at the generic brands at the store and they are less than half the cost of the Enfamil. I would love to switch to one of the generic brands, but not if they are not as good or are lacking something the name brands have. Am I just paying for the "name" or is there really a big difference between them?
