    Re: extended nursing and the law

    My favorite Anthropologist Kathryn Dettwyler has an actual letter that she will sign and send to a judge. If you 'Google" her name you can get her website, and then find it from there.

    Re: my mother-in-law...

    Well, your friend-the-nanny babysits for kids who are not really AP'd. I mean, is she watching infants? By definition, if they are with a nanny they are not with their mother, so they are not truly...

    Re: coming up

    I hope one of the moderators will reply to this, but from what I know about how much 10 months old babies should nurse, that does not seem like enough. The American Academy of Pediatrics, and LLL,...

    Re: Help!!! Re: Nursing 2 Year Old DD

    I can really sympathize with you and your lack of sleep. I am sure nearly all the members on this list have had many years of interrupted sleep.

    I have a feeling that the night nursing is your...

    Re: Does my baby weigh enough?

    I have to agree with the other posters who recommended that the only problem here seems to be with your Pediatrician. I too had a slow-weight gain daughter, who I believe did not reach 20 pounds...

    Re: Breastfeeding past the age of two.

    Great question,' Summer Rain'
    As you can see, many people on this list have nursed well past 2 years.
    My daughter weaned 3 weeks ago (I think for real this time) which made her 1 month past her 4th...
  7. Re: Looking for "proof" for extended breastfeeding?

    Boy are you planning ahead!! I have to agree with all the other posts that recommend La Leche League meetings! LLL meetings are a place where you can meet other moms who are nursing toddlers (or in...

    Re: i couldn't believe

    Don't get me started about doctors who (think they) know it all!

    Yes, drinking the milk of another species is odd. In many cultures today, it is still unheard of. Humans have been evolving for...

    Re: Grieving

    As anyone who has been reading my posts under the "I think she's weaned" thread knows, my just-turned 4 year old (Mar 29) has nearly weaned. She did try to nurse for about 30 seconds yesterday (April...

    Re: I Think she's weaned

    Well...
    She nursed on her birthday (Wednesday), and the next day(Thur), and then not for 4 more days, but twice on Sunday, and not since (Tues). So it could be anytime now.

    How do I feel? Good...

    Re: Desperate Housewives?

    I haven't seen the show, but in general I find that any depiction of nursing anyone other that an infant in the media is generally not positive.

    Re: Really extended

    Ivy,
    I am curious; is it Westerners or Chinese who say the 'breast milk has no nutritional value after 6 months'. You hear that quite a bit here in the states, although usually the time frame is...

    Re: Anyone b/f 19 months or older?

    I have heard of the "boobies are asleep" strategy before, but usually for older children. I don't think I have known it to work on a child under 2.

    Re: Your first exposure to ENing?

    This is a great question!!

  21. Re: seeking EBF advice: skinny baby refusing solids

    Your daughter sounds a bit like mine was! She was born over the 95 percentile, but by 9 months was below 5th. She only gained 5 .5 pounds in 9 months.

    I attended the LLL International...
