    Post breastfeeding cysts?

    I weaned my 18 month son a month ago. I found a lump in my right breast a week ago and had an ultrasound on it today. It's apparently a cluster of cysts which should go away in a couple of months. ...

    Well, we're done

    My son will be 18 months next week and I'm both happy and sad that we are done breastfeeding. It was actually an easy wean. At 17 months, we cut down to once daily (before bed), and a couple weeks...

    Re: help weaning at 16 months

    Thanks ladies! I was really uncomfortable this afternoon so I ended up hand expressing a little. I hope to just nurse at bedtime for a little while, and then be done by 18 months. Good to know the...

    Re: help weaning at 16 months

    We took out the morning feeding today. He had no problem going to the kitchen for milk in his sippy cup. But wow, I haven't been this full in a while. Does it really work to nurse just once a day?...
  5. Re: Don't know how to start weaning this time

    I'm still nursing my 16 month old morning and night. I'm ready to wean, but I don't think he is. I feel like a closet nurser as our society seems to think a person is 'weird' if they nurse over a...

    My LO just turned 16 months and has been nursing before bed and upon waking in the morning for the last 3 months. I'd really like to work towards weaning now. I was planning on taking out the...

    reducing feedings

    My son is 13 months now, and nursing early am, before an afternoon nap when at home, and at bedtime. When I am at work (4 days/week), I pump during his nap time. I'd like to cut out the afternoon...

    Re: breastfeeding at 12 mo

    Thanks for all the quick responses! That makes me feel a little better. My LO still nurses about 5-6 times/day. Now that he's almost a year, I'm feeling the pressure to wean. I'm just not sure...

    breastfeeding at 12 mo

    How many times/day do other 12 month olds nurse?
  11. Re: 7mo BF baby - No antibodoes?

    I asked the same question a few weeks ago. My LO goes to daycare and seems to get sick with some sort of virus about every 4-6 weeks. Someone explained that they get the antibodies you have...
  12. Re: Baby not pooping.. is this normal?

    My LO pooped many times/day in the beginning, but then started going up to 7 days without pooping. When he did go, it was normal. Apparently this is normal for breastfed babies. Even if you are...

    Re: breast vs bottle amounts

    My son started out taking 4 oz bottles at daycare every 3 hours, then 4.5 oz, and now takes 5 oz every 4 hours or so. But he eats solids too now. I would recommend increasing amounts by just a 1/2...

    Re: only nurses for 3-5 min

    Yes, my son does that too. Especially if he has somewhere to go. I refer to it as his 'power nurse'. (He is 11.5 months).
  15. need help, starting to wean

    My LO is just over 11 months now, and I'd like to start pumping less at work. My question is, if I reduce from two pumps to one on work days, what do I do on days off and weekends? Still nurse...

    Re: where are the immunities??

    There are 7 others that come on a regular basis. One set of parents take their kids EVERYWHERE on weekends and are probably the ones that bring in all the crud. If one of their kids isn't sick, the...

    Re: where are the immunities??

    That makes sense. Maybe I should snuggle up to all the other kids at daycare. There must be thousands of strains out there because so far the immunities I've given him haven't protected him that...

    where are the immunities??

    It seems my LO (11 months now) has been sick constantly since starting daycare at 10 weeks. So far he has had 3 colds, the stomach flu, a month of 'weird' stools, hand-foot-mouth virus, and now has...

    Re: Mastitis Questions

    I have had mastitis three times in the last 11 months. If you are red and feverish, get some antibiotics. I made the mistake of letting it get out of hand the first time around and ended up in the...

  22. Re: Green and sometimes mucousy poops

    My son had green/clear mucousy poops when he was 8 months or so. I had them tested, cultured, etc, but everything came back fine. It mysteriously went away after about a month. You might want to...
  23. Re: How often does your 11 month old nurse?

    My LO nurses 5-6 times/day. Usually 6.

    Nurses sometime during the night (usually 2 am)
    Nurses in the morning before leaving
    Solids and two 5 oz bottles EBM at daycare
    Supper when home (5:30...

    Re: support at 11 months

    Thanks bunny. These were actually comments from other mothers with small children who breastfed as well, just not as long. So I took their opinions a little hard.
