Playtex Drop Ins

Hi, I recently started using Playtex Drop In bottles for my 3 week old daughter and am having trouble measuring the ounces on the bottle. When I put the drop in in the bottle and pour the liquid in, it isnt the same amount measured on the side as if I were to measure the ounces in a measuring cup and then pour it in. Has anyone else had this issue and how do you do it? I have been measuring the ounces outside the bottle and pouring it in. Also, I am breastfeeding and supplementing with 2-4 ounces of formula per day, depending on her...

Infant with Reflux

I have a almost 5 month old baby boy with reflux. He was born 13 weeks early. The doctor has him on previcid and it has not seemed to work. We have him on the Similic Advance formula. He does ok the first half of his feed, then the rest of his feed he will fight eating. Sometimes after he burps it gets better. He spits up after almost every feed. He is gaining weight. I was wondering if anyone else has had these problems and what worked for you. I am thinking of calling the doctor and putting him on a different formula. He also will cry...

Non-stop Nursing Then Not Interested Once He's There - Help!

I'm a first-time mom who has been breastfeeding my beautiful new son for the last three weeks. Lately, he seems like he wants to nurse non-stop but then doesn't seem interested when he's actually on the breast, so I take him off and then he fusses and wants to go back on. Some nursing sessions have lasted more than 90 minutes! He will nurse for a while and then just suck and screw around, so I will take him off only to put him back on in a few minutes when he starts crying and rooting. I go back and forth between breasts and never know...

How to Clean Playtex Sippy Cups?

Hi moms! My almost 16 month old son has been off the bottle since 12 months and is doing great with a sippy cup. We use the Playtex brand and they have been wonderful. However, we have noticed recently that no matter what we do to clean them, the milk and juice tends to really stick to the hard to clean areas. We do not have a dish washer. Do you have any advice for a safe, effective way to clean them? Thanks!

My 13 Month Old Is Picky, picky...picky!

My 13 month old little guy is ALL boy, except for his eating habits. Ever since he's realized he can eat what mommy is eating (to a point), that is all he wants. But then when I sit him down in his high chair, he sometimes puts the food in his mouth, then spits it out. He will drink his bottles like they are going out of style as many times as he can during the day and will throw tiny fits unless he doesn't have his bottle (whole milk of course), or get whiney until we give them to him. He will eat some foods (cheerios, pastas of every...

7 Month Old Refuses to Eat from Bottle

I have a 7 month old daughter who will not eat from a bottle. I have been breastfeeding. Up until about 2 months ago, she would occasionally eat a bottle of pumped milk fed to her by her dad or grandma. Now, she absolutely refuses. I was gone all day yesterday, and she went without milk for 12 hours because she wouldn't eat from the bottle. We did start feeding her some solids in the past couple months, but I'm not sure that has anything to do with it. It seems like she forgot how to eat from the bottle. She will kind of chew the...
