    I don't have a lot of advice, accept to say that I used a nipple shield for 6 months with DD1, and one day she just nursed fine without it. It does take a leap of faith because you are right that...

    Re: I need milk for at least year

  7. Re: How do your LOs manage things like rice or beans or peas??

    I was giving those much younger than 13 months, so personally I wouldn't worry at all. If they are cooked and can be mashed easily in your fingers, it should be fine:)

    Re: 5 minute nursing sessions?

    I agree with PPs. My first daughter was a 40-minute nurser, but my second was just like yours. She would not scream after though. That makes me wonder if there may be some reflux going on with...

    mammals nursing

    I was looking through a baby encyclopedia of animals to M2 and she was fascinated by a picture of a horse nursing. She kept wanting me to show her all the baby animals nursing but I wasn't seeing...
  14. Re: Does this sound like oversupply?

    I agree it does sound like your flow is fast right now. But, at 6 weeks, your supply has probably not regulated yet. I would wait it out longer but if you are finding that this continues, there are...

    Turning head while hanging onto the nipple may actually be signs of him not being satisfied with the flow of milk. I went through a very similar experience when my first...
  20. Re: Conflicting feelings about weaning (kinda long)

    I haven't read each response closely, but I agree with PP who said it is okay to set limits. I don't think it is too much to expect him to remain in your lap and calm during nursing sessions, or...
