Yes, we're still BF. She gets about 1 small bottle of formula a day (4oz or so)

No baby food yet.

No bottle propping when she has one. She doesn't really hold her own bottle. She can but she doesn't really.

are u still BFding? never did - boobs didn't work after a reduction13 years ago ... we tried ... DRY as a desert fart
bottle feeding? Nutramigen 4oz about every 3 hours when awake
baby food? testing the waters with this now ... Dr said not necessary until 6 mo
a mix of 2? see above / sort of

does ur lo hold their own bottle? if it is the plastic one she tries ... the glass ones are a little to heavy I think
do u prop? prop the bottle up with her ? no
mix cereal with food? we tried cereal twice ... she didn't like it ... that was a while back ... going to try again next week on my days off ... going to mix it with the food and see what happens

does ur LO eat fruit/veggies? whats their favorite? we have tried applesauce, bananas, peaches, sweet potatoes, carrots, and sweet peas ... she has liked the veggies more, especially the sweet peas. I LOVE raw veggies and ate lots with preggo ... maybe this is why she likes appears to like them better so far

Bottle feeding. Daddy is feeding her right now and it sounds like she's kissing it, not drinking it.

We just started with sloppy solids this week. She's had pumpkin and loves it. Smacks her lips.

Lucy prefers to smash the side of her bottle than hold it. I love feed time. Perfect time for cuddles. Propping is just far to dangerous to even think about doing.

are u still BFding? yep!

bottle feeding? echo has zero interest in bottles. i've tried different ones, having other people feed her, leaving the room. nothing works. she's a boob kid.

baby food? i've let her taste a few things but she's not really super interested. i'm not going to force the issue.

a mix of 2? not really.


does ur lo hold their own bottle? i bought her a sippy cup thinking she might take pumped milk that way. no go. she does like to chew on it though. chomp, chomp, chomp.

do u prop? n/a

mix cereal with food? i tried to give her organic brown rice cereal. she hated it so i tried it. i hated it too! no more of that yucky stuff! she'll get her iron from bm and pureed leafy greens.

does ur LO eat fruit/veggies? whats their favorite? she's had little tastes. so far she doesn't hate any of them but she doesn't go bonkers for it either.

bottle feeding? He gets EBM at daycare
baby food? yes he's been having 1st foods for about a month and a half
a mix of 2?

does ur lo hold their own bottle? They told me he tries at daycare, can't really hold it, but gets his hands on it like he's trying
do u prop? no
mix cereal with food? His food is always mixed with just a little bit of cereal

does ur LO eat fruit/veggies? whats their favorite? He eats both. I haven't been able to notice a favorite yet. He really sucked down the squash tonight and I know peas are NOT his favorite. He seems to like all fruit but sometimes has a hard time eating banana. Sometimes he's fine other times he makes awful faces and gagged a couple times.
