    Re: Wanting to relactate

    My daughter is closing on 10.5 months old- I have not breastfed in a week, and it's breaking my heart-so, I have decided to try this as well, beginning tonight. There was no real reason that I...

    Re: Ouch....

    My daughter is 10 months and has 6 teeth-she has bitten me a few times-I would just remove her from the breast and tell her "no biting" in a very firm tone. She seemed to do it mainly when she had...

    Re: Live in small community...

    I wouldn't do the cereal yet-she's still a bit on the young side. As far as the biscuits, NO WAY!!! My DD is 10 months old and needs constant supervision with these. I did not give her a biscuit,...

    Re: Sleeping arrangements

    We have gone thru many stages here with sleep. DD did well at first in the bassinet or crib-then she hated it and went in my bed- then I hated it, and she went back in the crib and was ok- then she...

    Re: Where Did My Breasts Go???

    I can feel your pain-I am small breasted as well-a 34C while breastfeeding. After I weaned my son, I noticed a decrease back to my 34B size, and didn't look or feel as full, but I think you get used...
  7. Re: Letter to Adeline On Her One Year Birthday ...

    I wrote a letter much like that to my son when he turned a year old, and plan to write one to my daughter in 2 more months when she reaches that age. I think that it was a wonderful letter, and the...

    Re: Baby wants mommy only-pls help

    I had this situation with my daughter as well-she would not accept anyone other than me to care for her until she was about 4 months old, and then I could actually leave her with her dad without her...

    Re: Time between feeds

    I would say that if her diaper output is good(6-8 wet and a few soiled) and she's gaining well, then I'd not worry about it.

    new teeth-ouch!!!

    My daughter is 9 months, and is just getting teeth on the top-4 at the same time actually!!! She already has bottom teeth, which hasn't been a problem at all. But, since the first top teeth appeared,...
  11. Re: just home from the hospital...to a barrel of problems

    Okay-it probably is engorgement-are the breasts very full and warm? If so, it's that.

    You can try a few tricks to help things keep going smoothly-

    - Express a little milk before putting baby on...
  12. Re: Discouraged, in vicious cycle, help me stay with BF

    Can you do a sports bra that is tight but doesn't have an underwire? I did these, and I even found ones that opened in the front, which was awesome-I got mine at walmart if you want to try one.
  13. Re: How do you realistically sleep when the baby sleeps?

    I would also say that a lot of it depends on the baby-that'll be the barometer for how much sleep you'll need and get.

    My advice is this- take atleast one nap during the day when baby is-even if...

    Re: Just wanted to say that it is not easy

    those first months are so tough. it does get better, but hearing that when you've had no sleep, a crying baby, just doesn't cut it.!!!!!

    Re: Can't nurse - respiratory infection is worse

    OMG-what a day you had!!! I have a dog that eats everything too, so that can be bad!! Anyhow, I'm glad that you're doing a bit better. I wanted to mention one thing- maybe you could also get a manual...

    Re: Can't nurse - respiratory infection is worse

    Sounds to me like you'll have to tough it out till the meds are gone after the 8 days. In the meantime, to keep your supply up, I'd imagine that you'll have to pump quite frequently. As far as the...

    Re: need some help.

    I would guess that she prefers the bottle, simply because she doesn't have to work as hard to get the milk out-this happens in a lot of cases when bottle is itroduced. I would get her back on the...

    Re: I can't take it anymore!!!

    My girl went thru this as well, and I swear, I really thought that I was going to die. So, instead of dying, I got "tough"(yeah, ok) I put her down in her crib at night- if she woke before 4...

    Re: Baby Not Napping!

    I'm not sure that you're doing anything wrong, as this was/is the same situation I am in with my daughter. She would wake up frequently when I put her down, didn't nap well at all, and honestly,...

    Re: Nap length?

    When my DD was a newborn, she took many long naps during the day. Now, at 9 months, her naps are very erratic-some days it's several small power naps of less than 30 minutes, and somedays she'll nap...

    Re: preparing to breastfeed for 2nd time

    I found the second time easier, since I know more, and knew more what to look for in terms of problems. I still got sore, but it wasn't too bad, and the lanolin was absolutely my best friend!!!

    My son was very colicky for the first 3 or so months- my MIL, who didn't BF either of her children, tried very hard to pursuade me to give him cereal, or just in his bottle. As a first time mom, I...
