Is First Years or Evenflo Breast Pumps Any Good?

I know that Medellas are sold in Target but I also seen other brands. Is there an "off" brand ie, Evenflo, First Years, etc. that is comparable but without the price??

Won't Drink Milk from a Cup

My 13-month old daughter will not drink milk from a sippy cup...only a bottle. Her doctor said she doesn't need to drink much milk as long as she's getting dairy from other sources during meal times.

Around 2.5 he was trustworthy enough to lose the cups with lids and go to regular cups with only an occasional accident. ...
