If you wean your baby prematurely, will the baby's growth and development be abnormal?

Not because of early: weaning. Don't beat yourself up. Don't do anything with a bottle that you wouldn't do with your breast;i.e, don't let your baby schlep around , lie flat on his back or fall asleep with it. Hold him during feeds, even if he holds the bottle. Give water from a double-handled, open-mouthed cup at 10 mos., so he'll hold it by 1 yr. when you wean him & switch to whole milk, 2 cups/day maximum. ...Read more

If you're pregnant will the baby dad eat as much as the mother ?

Depends!: There is no physiologic reason why the dad would eat as much as the pregnant mom, however some dads do gain wt during the mom's pregnancy! Some people have called this sympathy wt gain, but it probably has more to do with seeing the mom eating makes them hungry, or if she is snacking, he'll snack too to keep her company or because seeing the food makes him hungry too! ...Read more
