Quoting Brittany and Armajo Baby:" Oh I was just told that most women don't have the time to breast feed and babies get started on solid ... [snip!] ... now so I'll see how it goes with my little girl but as long as I can I suppose that I will do it longer if my body permits!"Tons of women nurse into the toddler years. Not having enough time is myth. If you had the time at 4 months you have the time at 6 months. Formula is expensive and smelly no reason to switch if your doing good with breastfeeding.
Quoting Brittany and Armajo Baby:" I bought that diaper pail through arm n' hammer, I had to use one with my friends kids awhile ago, and ... [snip!] ... tell you what it cut the smells by a lot, and my nose is even less keen on stinky smells right now so I did waste that bit lol"
Quoting Brittany and Armajo Baby:" What would you recommend for a good stain fighter? I kind of figured I wouldn't have to buy Dreft. I already uses All that's free and clear of dyes and fragrances and the same for Downy! "
Quoting Brittany and Armajo Baby:" Eww. Yeah I haven't even thought about buying formula, probably never will! I heard you have more throw up too if they are on formula! :/"Not always true but overeating happens more with formula kids which causes the spit up. Plus if you have a kid with a sensitive tummy or other issue you can spend months trying to find the "right" formula. Baby needs either BM or Formula as their primary nutrition for the first year. Usually by 6 months your are into a routine and its just second nature. I had one kid that was FF and one that was mixed fed due to supply issues. BFing was tons easier even with all the issues I had.
Quoting Brittany and Armajo Baby:" Thank you for the advice I'm glad to hear that BF is easier, it seems less time consuming too...without all the bottle troubles and what nots!"Someone asked me once why I BF. Im simply to lazy to use formula unless necessary. BFing takes 1 hand formula takes two until they hold their own. Baby cries pull out boob latch and done. You can even sleep and nurse. Formula- Baby cries get up grab baby make bottle while holding fussing baby (who is now more awake from the crying) stay awake while feeding baby burp lay down then you have to try and get yourself back to sleep.
