If i was allergic to milk as a baby and had to drink pre-digested milk will my baby be the same way because i want to breastfeed.
?

Not necessarily: You should not assume your baby will be this way. In fact, if your baby is cow's milk sensitive/allergic, breastfeeding is the best way to go as long as you avoid dairy in this case. Watch the baby for signs of allergy like vomiting, bloody and mucousy diarrhea or bad eczema. ...Read more

Though unusual, you can go into labor, the baby's heart rate can drop, your membranes can rupture, and more. If you don't want to do it, your doc will want to do a c. Section, most likely, but that is your choice. ...Read more

Is there anything I can do to be able to breastfeed my next child with my hypoplasia? I couldnt make enough milk this 1st time around :(

Yes: Many women fail at breast-feeding because they are not adequately prepared. For example, you can avoid sore nipples by regularly tweaking them between thumb and forefinger to strengthen them in the months before delivery. Please contact the La Leche League, a non-profit devoted to helping women breast-feed successfully. The size of a woman's breast usually has no relationship to the amount of milkproduced. ...Read more

When should I put my 22 month old in a toddler bed? How can I get him to drink from a sippy cup instead of a bottle?

About now..: If your child is getting to big for the crib and has tried to get out, it is time to get him out of there! consider moving the crib mattress on to the floor so he can learn not to fall and if he does he will just roll off. As far as the bottle, its is way past due to take him off it. Remember kids learn by association, teach him to drink from a regular cup or from a straw. ...Read more
