    Re: Final feeding, now what?

    I also weaned very slowly, and stopped completely a few days after her 1 year birthday. It’s been 2 ½ weeks and I never got engorged or uncomfortable at all, since I cut the feedings out one by one...

    Re: Ways to celebrate end of breastfeeding?

    I've just weaned and I am hoping to have a "spa day" - a massage, pedicure, and eyebrow wax. And new bras are definitely in order.

    Re: pump weaning

    I pump weaned a couple weeks ago. I had gone from 3x a day to 2x a day, then to 1x a day. I then made that session a little bit shorter, from 15 minutes to 10. Then I just cut it out cold turkey...

    Re: weaning help

    I would take my pump (electric) and use it in the a.m. and p.m. at the hotel. During the day at Disney, I would take a small manual pump (I have the Avent ISIS) in my backpack or tote and just go...

    I got my period at 5 months PP and have been breastfeeding successfully for several months beyond that! I do have a little dip when I get my period, but nowhere near needing to wean.

    I also get...

    Re: baby food storage

    Me too - trays with lids at BB&B. once they are frozen, I put the cubes in quart-sized freezer ziplock bags marked with what kind of food and the date, and then put 2-3 bags of food in a gallon...

    Re: Being ok with baby needing less

    True - your baby will still need you just as much, just in a different way.

    I'm sad and also feel guilty because the reasons I'm looking forward to it are selfish ones. But you're right about...

    Re: Being ok with baby needing less

    Today is the first day I'm cutting down to pumping 1 time at work. I was doing it 3x a day until a couple weeks before Christmas, and cut one out then. I have been incredibly busy at work, and am...

    Re: Baby changing his mind about weaning

    I don't have much weaning experience because I'm in a very slow process of weaning also, but when reading your post I thought that maybe he is coming down with one of those illnesses, or fighting...

    Re: Weaning at 20months and breast pain

    It sounds like a plugged duct. I had one once but luckily it resolved itself pretty quickly.

    There's a weaning forum here too - maybe...

    Re: I don't WANT any Mommy!!!

    My daughter goes through phases, sometimes she is just not as interested in food as other days. The time that she really didn't want any was when she was congested - she was totally disinterested in...

    Re: I don't feel a let down....

    Perfectly normal! I had one week at about 7 months (?) where I felt it, and it was painful. Before and after that - never felt a thing, although I did leak from the breast I wasn't nursing on for...

    Re: 6mo old sick - best position for nursing?

    I found the best position to be to keep her as upright as possible. When she would lie down to nurse, the snot would pool at the back of her throat - who likes post-nasal drip?! So I tried to prop...

    Re: She weaned me cold turkey! HELP!

    I haven't weaned yet but have been reading about it, and one thing people area always cautioning against is the binding breasts thing (small bra). You might cause plugged ducts this way.

    Re: Mother-led weaning question

    Lisa, thanks for the advice! I was going to ask you what you gave your DS when you dropped the nursing sessions from 10-12 months, and see Mommie of 2 has the same thoughts.

    Re: Thrush

    One of the midwives at the place I go, who called me back when I called about our thrush and needing medication, said that technically the baby has thrush and I have "nipple yeast."

    Re: Bottles or other feeders for use with EBM
