this. But I know that Lily...

My DD is about the same age and is doing the same thing.

We don't use jarred foods and usually puree our food or a veggie or

Milk after breastmilk

My baby is sensitive to cow milk, so won't even be an option. Which is
a good thing, in my opinion. Since coming off of milk products due to
nursing, I've found myself to be much more healthy...

It's weird, I think, how someone would give Prevacid to their baby for
GERD, but have a thing about giving a known, safe tea.
