I'm planning to pump when I go back to work, but I can't seem to get the baby to take a bottle. I have a few more weeks to get this sorted out - any advice for getting him to transition?

I just sat down to create our family budget for after the baby is born and I'm really shocked at how everything adds up. Anyone else feel like having a child is insanely expensive?

My baby is getting sick so often in daycare that I'm beginning to think I'll have to get a nanny...even if my DD has a few sniffles they won't let me drop her off.
