Weaning 12 Month Old

My daughter is 12 months old. I have breastfed her exclusively since birth (no bottles) and she has been drinking water from a sippy cup very well since about 7 months old. I am eager to wean her from the breast. I offered her whole milk after her pediatrician gave the go ahead at her 12 month well visit. She has since refused every attempt at drinking milk. She pushes the cup away and shakes her head. I initially offered her milk in the same cup she drinks water from. She has also rejected milk in other types of cups---different sippies...

Avent or Born Free Bottles???

I am due to have my 2nd baby in January and I can't decide which bottles to use. I will be breastfeeding as long as possible but will still need bottles. I used Avent with my 1st daughter and liked them (that was before the info on BPA came out). I was going to switch to Born free but Avent now makes BPA free.

Introducing a Bottle or Exclusive Breastfeeding

My little man is almost 7 weeks old and I am trying to decide if I want to introduce a bottle.

I'm hesitant to introduce a bottle mostly because of the special bond created by exclusive breastfeeding. I also can wait 10 months to date my hubby, as we will have another 30-40 years to do that, and I can't get back these 10 months of my baby...

Question About Born Free Bottles

I recently started using Born Free bottles with my 6 week old twin boys. Several times I've noticed that the nipple kind of collapses during a feeding - which is something the manufacturer says isn't supposed to happen. I can't see that it's causing a problem - it just seems weird since it's something they say specifically shouldn't happen. Has anyone else noticed this? Did you continue to use the bottles?

Born Free BPA Free Plastic Bottles

Has anyone used the Born Free BPA free plastic bottles? Do you like them and if you switched after using another bottle, how did your baby take to the switch? Have you had any physical problems, like melting, with the bottle if you used the microwave to warm up the formula while in the bottle?
