    Re: Period back :(

    If I remember correctly, the mini pill is the same pill all month long right? You don't have 3 weeks of hormone pills and then a week of placebos, right? If that's the case, then you can actually...

    Re: Which session do I drop next?

    Boy do I remember those days well. I was in the exact same boat as you. The day my little girl turned one, I was SO done with the pump! If you really want an opinion on which one to cut out next,...

    Re: Weaning a 21 month co-sleeper~ Help!!

    Re: Wean the "least important feed"

  21. Nursing to sleep now that she has teeth?
