Sippy Cup for Weaning from Breastfeeding?

Hi moms, My daughter has been exclusively breast fed for the past 11 months and I am preparing to wean her in a month and am wondering if any nursing mothers can recommend a good sippy cup to wean with. She drinks water from an Avent sippy cup right now with meals, but she doesn't really like this cup all that much. Thanks in advance for your help!

BPA In Bottles?

Have you all been hearing/reading about the research they're doing on BPA found in baby bottles and infant formula cans? Haven't we turned out fine and aren't your kids ok? I'm just not sure wether to go to Babies R Us and buy all new bottles or not. You know, I'm on a tight budget right now. How serious are you all taking this?

Does anyone know of a paci that is good for "gaggers" and breastfed babies?

Feeding Solid Foods

I am curious about people's experience in introducing solids to their baby. I have a seven month old who is not really interested in food. I have been trying to feed him since he has been 4 months old, quit for a while and am back trying again. He has been waking up for about 2 months to eat in the middle of the night, but doesn't open and close his mouth when we eat (a sign I was told to wait for). Dr thought maybe he has problems swallowing since we had to teach him to nurse and never did get the hang of breast feeding and is...

Breastfeeding with an Illness

After 4 kids, I should know this, but have never run into this issue before. I am currently breastfeeding my 3 week old. oday, she started to get very fussy, which is unlike her. She acted like her belly really hurt her, and I assumed it was gas. Around noon, I started having really bad stomach cramps, and had an upset stomach afterward. I've thrown up a few times and feel a little better afterward, but have also had diarrhea. I don't know if it's just a bug or whatever, but should I still be nursing my daughter? I looked on the website for...

What to Do About My Breastfeeding Piranha?

I had wanted to nurse our son for one year, but if we can't resolve this soon I will have to wean him to stay sane. My son is ten months old this week and has been biting my nipple when breastfeeding on and off for several weeks. He has eight teeth and is getting a molar, so this is very shocking and painful to me every time it happens. Our pediatrician swears that it is not his desire to be weaned, but instead there is something he doesn't understand & or he is teething. I do what the she recommended- I say "no biting me" in a sharp...
