    Re: Definitely a rant....kinda long

    What a jerk! Sorry that happened. Please write a letter as others have suggested, and also please let it roll off your back!
  2. Re: Breastfeeding uncomfortable before period

    Thanks, ladies. I need to remember it's just for a few more days!

    I'm totally PMS-y, too, which doesn't help. As a matter of fact, my menstruation symptoms (cramps, irritability, bloating, etc.)...
  3. Breastfeeding uncomfortable before period

    Does anyone else find bf'ing uncomfortable (and almost annoying) a few days before their period starts?

    My 14 month old son nurses 4x a day, and usually it is such a sweet time for both of us. But...

    Re: Soy Milk?

    Thanks, ladies. I decided not to go with the soy milk, and he seems to have been okay with cow's milk the past few weeks. He really only drinks a minimal amount, anyway (prob just a few ounces a day).

    Soy Milk?

    My son is almost 14 months. We nurse 3-4x a day. I had been giving him a cup of cow's milk with his meals (he'd drink very little of it) up until last week when he had a stomach bug, and he went...

    Re: How often does your toddler nurse?

    My 12.5 month old nurses 4x a day (and that has been his schedule since 8 months old -- in the AM, before both naps, and bedtime).
  7. Re: Breasts have gotten way smaller ... normal?

    Thanks, ladies. So it sounds like my body is just regulating and getting back to "normal" and that I shouldn't be concerned.
  8. Re: If you've had your period, please respond...

    I just got my period again today (sigh), and DS is almost 10 months old. I was concerned b/c I didn't think I'd get my period again at all while nursing, but after reading this post and others, it...
  9. Re: Breasts have gotten way smaller ... normal?

    On another note, I started my period today (for the first time since I've given birth). I'm just wondering if my newly smaller boobs and getting my period mean that I'm not producing enough milk for...
  10. Breasts have gotten way smaller ... normal?

    DS is almost 10 months. He is down to nursing only 4 times a day (his choice!). He is very healthy and is gaining well.

    My question seems silly :o, but my breasts have gotten WAY smaller in the...

  12. Re: Does anyone else get annoyed at your hubby?

    From one sleep-deprived mom to another -- of course, it's natural to get annoyed sometimes! My son also refuses a bottle, and he's 8.5 months now, so feeding duty always falls to me. He also has...

    Re: Sex & BF...?!?!

    I had the same exact problem. I got a prescription for Estrace estrogen cream. I was so scared to use it -- afraid it was affect my supply -- that it sat in my medicine cabinet for weeks. I finally...

    Re: In need of a "pep talk"!

    Thank you, ladies. You are right -- I think the ups and downs help make this experience so very special. It is a relationship that can't be described ... you just have to have experienced it...

    In need of a "pep talk"!

    My son is just over 8 months now. We've been through so many ups and downs with breastfeeding.

    The "downs": unplanned C-section, too many bottles in the nursery leading to nipple confusion,...
  16. Re: HELP - baby is refusing breast - 5 months today!

    Are things any better? This has happened to me before ... my son is 8 months, and we've been through many ups and downs with bf'ing (including the overactive letdown, just as you describe it).

    Re: 8 Month Old Biting

    Thanks for the response. I'm actually back on here tonight because he has been biting a lot today. He bit me at his 4 p.m. feeding (I took it as a sign he wasn't hungry ... he only nurses about 50 %...

    DS is 8 months, I stay at home with him and EBF. We've got a lot going on right now -- I have mastitis (again!), he is teething, and he has a slight cold. Yesterday morning he bit my nipple for the...

    Re: 8 month old not nursing enough

    Thanks for the info -- good to know! He nursed at 4 p.m. yesterday, which made me feel better. I think every day is just going to be a little different, and I'm going to have to go with the flow. I'm...

    Re: 8 month old not nursing enough

    Let me know if the doctor has any advice!

    As I mentioned, he is quite healthy and seems to be gaining weight, but I am just concerned b/c he isn't nursing as often (or as much), and my milk...

    8 month old not nursing enough

    My 8 month old isn't nursing as much anymore, and I'm concerned.

    He will nurse first thing in the morning, before his 9 a.m. nap, then again before his 1 p.m. nap, then he will not nurse again...
  22. Re: 7 month old refusing late afternoon feeding

    Just a quick update in case anyone is having this same problem ... I cut back on solids some and that did seem to help some. He will nurse in the late PM (even though he seems to only nurse about 5...

    Re: Dumb sweet potato question

    I concur ... generally in America you will find "sweet potatoes" and not "yams." I actually just read that last night in the book Super Baby Food. I make sweet potatoes for my 7 month old all the...

    Thanks. You're right -- this condition does make intercourse unbearable! Like trying to make love to a cactus. I think I will try the cream (I may not use the full prescribed dose, though). May try...

    Estrace cream -- have you used it?

    I am EBF my 7 month old son, and I've been very dry and raw feeling "down there" since his birth. Definitely puts a damper on intimacy with the hubby. We basically can't have sex b/c it is so...
