Okay moms...Little help here. I'm on baby #4 and more confused than I have EVER been when it comes to kids.
First 3 kids were weaned off formula by 12 months and given milk around 10 0r 11 months.
Been reading (maybe too much) and EVERYTHING I see says to NOT feed my daughter milk until 1 year or later.
BUT, and its a nice sized one, Her pediatrician is saying to give her a little milk. As well as table foods (just cut up and mashed very well).
So what would you do in my situation? I'm scared to hurt my baby in any way, so I don't wanna give her something I shouldn't....but if her doc says she can is it time for a second opinion??
Any help at all ladies is appreciated.. thanks!!
If all three of your older kids are healthy and happy, why not just keep doing what you're doing? Don't stress over it, mama! You're doing a good job!
This! You really CAN get TOO informed about stuff like this and just end up confusing and irritating yourself. This momma hit it right on the head here. If your 3 other kids are good then just stick to what you did with them. By #4 you're supposed to be MORE confident, not LESS!!! Don't second guess yourself honey. You know what you're doin. Believe it!

I don't read parenting books and "experts" and stuff like that. I do what works for our family. My 4 older kids started drinking small amounts of milk at around 6 months and were having cups of it with dinner by 8 months. They were weaned off of formula and bottles at 12 months.
All 4 survived and are healthy and normal kids (they are 10, 9, 8 and 4). I plan to do the same with my now 2 month old when he gets to that age.

How can get my toddler to stop biting, slapping, pinching me?
