What do I do if I want to wean my baby off of formula?

Gradually or at once: After a baby is 12 months of age, and is eating a variety of baby foods, he can be weaned off formula and start whole cow milk. The weaning can be gradual over a week, in which more and more cow milk is mixed into the liquid formula each day. By the end of the week, the baby's drink will be mostly or all cow milk. Or one can wean suddenly, by making the formula disappear and just offering milk. ...Read more

You're male, right?: If the concern is premature ejaculation, and you have some reason to think this will happen, then wait for the most special time -- perhaps your wedding night -- so even if it does, it doesn't matter. Bring her to completion with your mouth and hands. Put a bit of an anesthetic on your glans. Have her squeeze you if it's about to happen. Talk with her about the possibility, and with your doctor. ...Read more

Nursing: Well, there's cold turkey. Just stop, he might be ready, too. but it can be tough. Introduce a cup, at traditional nursing times. Like, don't nurse in the morning, just get up and give breakfast. Have dad put baby to bed, if possible. I hope you're still not nursing at night. If so, then have him go in, too. If you cut back slowly, you'll make less milk. Cold cabbage leaves, on the breast, help. ...Read more

Engorgement: Abrupt discontinuation of breast feeding can result in engorgement, or congestion of the milk ducts with milk. Some techniques to reduce this pressure include hot showers, cold compresses, breast pumping and wearing a tight bra. NSAID medications such as Advil (ibuprofen) or Motrin will likely also be somewhat helpful. Infection can develop if engorgement is long standing, and a doctor visit may be needed. ...Read more

My baby is 9 months old now and I am supposed to be giving him new foods. Where do I start? What is okay to try? I don't want to give him stuff he's not ready for.

My baby is 9 months old now and I am supposed to be giving him new foods. Where do I start? What is okay to try? I don't want to give him stuff he's not ready for.

Check it out: From profile, sounds like baby has big tendency to allergy (nut allergy, eczema, runny nose, enough wheezing to need xopenex). Check w/ md to be sure he's not allergic to what he already eats. I always recommend trying all vegetables first (baby food or cooked and pureed) then non-citrus fruits. Try 1 new food every 3 days & watch for reaction. Leave off corn, cow milk, nuts, choking risks. ...Read more
