    I did it!!!

    I did it. I nursed (partially) for a year.

    My goal was 6 months, then, by the time LO was a few weeks old, we were having so many problems that I cut that back to three months. Then we reached...

    Re: Thank you

    No offence taken :) Just making sure that I didn't offend anyone by giving the wrong idea about what she was saying.

    Re: Thank you

    Thank you both. Meg, your post just made me cry, but in a good way!

    Mommal, I know that my mum's views on breastfeeding are waaaaay off the mark, but I don't think she really meant "only women who...

    Thank you

    I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to everyone on this forum, and to the La Leche League and their wonderful leaders. I've found so much support and helpful advice since I've found this community....

    Re: ....aaaaaaghhh!

    Thanks, Meg. I worry about obesity and overfeeding, too, especially since DH's family are all either overweight or obese. How can I tell if I'm overfeeding her, though? Again, this is where I'm...

    Travelling, and stressed? I just moved from the US to the UK, so that takes care of the first, and the second... Ha. I love LO with all my heart, but all the problems we've been having have had me...

    ....aaaaaaghhh!

    It seems that I am destined to not breastfeed my child.

    This afternoon, I had a nasty pain in my left breast, a lot like when you press on a buise, except that it was constant (but made worse if...

    Re: Baby will only nurse in motion

    Yep, we've tried swaddling :( Usually she loves to be swaddled, but if anything it makes it worse when she's in a "nope, you've got to keep moving" kind of mood.

    Zaynethepain, I don't think I...

    Still having cramps?

    LO is 3 months old (actually, 3 and a half today), and I'm still getting terrible contractions/cramps every now and then when I nurse her. It's getting less frequent, but I'd say it's at least three...

    Re: Baby will only nurse in motion

    Thanks for your help, everyone. I'll answer questions the best I can:

    I can't nurse her in a carrier or sling because of my neck and shoulder. We've tried multiple carriers and slings but I can't...

    Baby will only nurse in motion

    I've created a monster. My 3 month old went through multiple nursing strikes lately, and I coaxed her back to the breast by nursing in motion. Now, it's the only way she will eat. She won't let me...

    Re: What the......?

    I worry about that, too, but when this happened she would not take a pacifier or her thumb. When DH tried to rock her to sleep she turned her head to his chest and rooted. Whenever he took the bottle...

    What the......?

    So, today started out GREAT. I nursed LO for 40 minutes early this morning; pain-free; without her protesting (or, rather, without any protesting that nursing in motion couldn't solve). About three...
  15. Re: Still hungry after nursing, big babies

    I know, right? But the way they put it to me (the referral came from an LC at LO's paediatrician) is that while they of course specialise in speech, a large part of that is tongue and cheek and...
  16. Re: Still hungry after nursing, big babies

    *Screams with frustration*

    I asked the speech therapist weeks ago (we've now stopped going, by the way, because it was completely unhelpful and in fact she even told me we'd exhausted all options)...
  17. Re: Still hungry after nursing, big babies

    That is very interesting. We usually find that when we give her a bottle, the teat comes out of her mouth completely pinched together to the point that it forms a seal. Is this a sign that the same...
  18. Re: Still hungry after nursing, big babies

    Thanks for your help and support, ladies. I figured that what my family have been telling me about big babies was probably wrong, but since they've raised big babies I thought I'd check. Is there any...
  19. Still hungry after nursing, big babies

    I just nursed LO for an hour. Other than her latest 'thing', which is spitting the nipple out and then taking it again after every ten sucks or so, she ate well and was happy. She was the one to end...
  20. Re: Building a stash QUICKLY & baby dropping the nipple

    We're still having the same problem with her dropping the nipple. If anything, it's getting worse; and I'm close to quitting after all the other problems we've had. DH thinks it could be something to...
  21. Building a stash QUICKLY & baby dropping the nipple

    LO and I are finally getting on the right track after all our problems, but we're still not quite there.

    First of all, unfortunately DH has lost his job, so I could be starting work very soon. If...

    Being treated for PPD? Not... Currently, no. I would really rather not go into finances any more than this, but DH is about to lose his job (and with it, our health insurance) and we still don't have...

    I'm so lost. This is just getting worse.

    All weekend, I had my husband on duty to do everything for me so all that I had to do all day was pump every two hours. I STILL couldn't do it. I feel so...
