When to Stop Breastfeeding

I am looking for opinions on when it is ok to stop breastfeeding. I nursed my 1st child to 11 mo, second didn't work out so well, and was only able to nurse for 7 weeks. My third child is now 8 mo, and I would really like to be done. He takes a bottle fine when I pump, and has also had formula, and doesn't seem to mind it. Everytime I think about stopping, I have so much guilt. I think if I made it to 1 year, I would be ok with stopping, but I'm wondering if it is really that important or beneficial to keep nursing these last few...

Rash on 6 Month Old's Bottom

Our six month old has a rash on her bottom. We noticed a small couple of spots so started putting on A&D Ointment and change her every couple hours, whether really wet or not...(more frequently if needed...) and everyday the rash has gotten worse. We haven't really changed her diet, but she is fighting a cold and teething. We did (on recommendation of her ped)give her some plain yogurt about 5 days before the rash appeared. Since then, I have only given her cereal, formula and baby food that she is used to. Do you think she could be...

Severe Diaper Rash

Hi everyone. I have a problem. My son, who is 2 1/2 came home with this god aweful diaper rash with blisters from daycare. All weekend we tried everything, neosporin, triple paste, A&D and nothing helped because he is holding his bowel movements and screaming in pain because a little will come out at a time from him trying to hold it. I took him to an after hours clinic last night and they gave me burn cream for it. But the problem is, it is not having a chance to heal because he won't "poop" He just squeezes his cheeks together and...

Baby Won't Take Formula

I am looking to start weaning my 8 month old son, but am having problems getting him to take formula. He will take a bottle, no problem, but he won't take formula. I've tried Similac Advance, Enfamil, and just bought some soy formula today to see if that will make a difference. It doesn't matter if its me trying to give it, or my husband. I even had my husband try to mix half formula and half breastmilk, and he refused. I know he can smell the difference, and the taste is obviously different. It's not looking good. Any advice?

Do Baby Vitamins (With Iron) Really Stain Their Teeth?

My 9-mo-old son has recently begun rejecting baby cereal. It's the age - he's trying out finger foods. He eats solids several times a day and is breastfed (with one formula bottle a day). I had previously been giving him Tri-Vi-Sol vitamins, because his pediatrician said breastfed infants need a Vit. D supplement. But since he stopped eating the iron-fortified infant cereal, I started giving him the Poly-Vi-Sol w/ Iron to make sure he's getting enough iron. But I just remembered having read somewhere that iron vitamin drops can stain...
