    I have no advice, but my 8.5mo is doing this as well. All of a sudden, he nurses only 3 times per day (and 2 x at night). However, he does seem to eat more at these times (wake up, second nap time...
  3. Re: Breastfeeding and the "I hate Cow's Milk..."

    I couldn't help chiming in. This will be controversial, but cow's milk (especially pasterized and processed) really isn't a health food anyway. The calcium is not very absorbable and more and more...

    Re: Tips for returning to work please

    I think everyone cries the first day back :-)

  8. Re: Drinking less milk at daycare since solids

    Thanks for the idea. I will ask about the timing (milk first, solids second). At home we always nurse first, then feed and he drinks and eats well.
  9. Drinking less milk at daycare since solids

    We introduced solids at just past 6 mos (2 weeks ago) and now find that instead of drinking 15-22 oz at daycare he drinks only 11-13 oz. He is eating only a small amount several times a day. The...

    My daycare provider informed me that they began offering my son (almost 6 mos) a pacifier to get him to nap during the day. At home, he usually falls asleep at the breast during the day. He is able...
