Adios Alimentum

Today, we bid Adieu, Adios, and Sayonara to Alimentum! It’s been a long, expensive journey that could make any Starbucks or crack habit look pitiful in comparison. For those of you who aren’t familiar with baby formula, well… Noob Baby had a *special* little thing called a protein allergy that required her to drink one of the most expensive formulas on the market. Well, if there’s one thing I’m doing right as a parent, it’s raising my baby to be {Read More}

A Baby Feeding Guide | Newborn – 15 Months

Life seemed so much easier back in the day when Noob Baby was subsisting only on milk. For about two months now, NB has been dabbling in solids. She’s in that purgatory transition period now where she thinks those Gerber Puffs are cardboard, can’t eat anything off our plates, and is basically condemned to a life of bland old people food – primarily, purees.

Goodbye Medela, Hello Similac: The End of an Era

Breastmilk or formula? Probably one of the most controversial topics next to the Kennedy assassination. Well, as for me, I had to say goodbye Juggernauts at 2 months. I was really lucky that Noob Baby was great at nursing. She learned quickly and didn’t have any latch problems right from the get-go. I started pumping along with regular nursing at around 2-3 weeks so that Noob Daddy could help with feeding. It was also the only way I could get {Read More}
