  1. Re: Cracked and bleeding breastfeeding a 2 year old

    I had a crack that just wouldn't heal a couple of weeks ago. A couple of days of gentian violet and it was fine. I wish I had considered thrush earlier.

    Re: Thrush while extended bf

    She is still refusing to nurse on that side. She'll lift up my shirt, look at it, and then put my shirt back down. I did pump yesterday mainly because I was starting to feel uncomfortable. Hoping...

    Thrush while extended bf

    I'm pretty sure I have thrush, so I've started gv for it this morning. (I had a crack that just wouldn't heal and now I've got shooting pain, but no fever or hard spots that would make me think it...
  4. Re: Questions about starting to wean 10-month old

    So, by the time you go back to work, your DD will be a year old? You should be able to make it work without too much trouble at all.

    I nurse in the morning, when I get home from work, and...

    Re: late start nursing

    I am definitely proof that it can work. There were very few days that my dd didn't get at least 1 bottle of formula and most days she got two. What worked for me was to pick when the most...

    Re: late start nursing

    I had about this same situation. I gave up nursing from day 7 until day 11 and didn't pump. My baby had both bottles and nursing every day after day 11 (and we are still nursing at 18 months). I...

    Re: Number of nursings - cows milk?

    Our dd nurses 2-3 times a day. She gets 1-2 cups of milk and 1 cup of watered down juice and water the rest of the time. She's growing fine.

    I'm in the don't ask, don't refuse, stage.

    Re: severed nipple

    Does she have any new teeth? Every time my dd gets new teeth, I get sore spots on my nipples. Funny thing is it only happens in the cradle hold. So, I nurse her lying down for a few days, things...

    Re: Is this wrong or just weird?....

    I do this, too. One big reason is because if she decides to turn it over and shake all the fluid out, I'd rather have a puddle of water on the floor than milk or juice.

    Re: AGH! What could be wrong?!?!

    I was thinking the same thing. My dd loves her pacifier and she used to get mad if I tried to nurse when what she really wanted was to suck. Odd but true. If she wanted to nurse, she would nurse...

    Is this wrong or just weird?....

    My 17 month old dd sometimes likes to nurse with a pacifier in one hand and a sippy cup of water in the other. She will go back and forth between the 3 things and sometimes unlatch to take a drink...

    Re: supplementing and trying to resume BF

    I thought a pound a month was within the range of normal at that age. My doctor told me that anywhere from a half ounce to an ounce a day was fine. A pound would be a half ounce a day.

    Re: How long is to long to feed?

    I'd guess it's a growth spurt and I'd go with it for now as long as you know milk is being taken in. My lo used to love to nurse for an hour and a half at that point. Once they get a little older,...

    Re: Is this normal

    To be sure, I would contact the local early intervention agency and have them do an assessment. It may be nothing, but if it is something, the earlier you deal with it, the better the outcome.

    Re: How does this work for others...

    I still nurse my 17 month old at bedtime unless she flat out refuses. She doesn't nurse to sleep, per se. We sit in the living room and nurse. Then, when it's bedtime she walks into the kitchen,...

    Re: I can't pump enough milk

    It could be your pump. What kind do you have? Some women are just lousy pumpers. I was one of them. I knew that, in order to get enough milk for the next day, I needed to pump a couple of times...

    Make up my mind....

    Is it common for older nurslings to drop a nursing and then pick it back up a day or two later? My 17 month old did this last week with her first thing in the morning nursing. She skipped it for 2...

    Re: It's Official But Is This Normal?

    I never pump any more. DD generally nurses during the week once in the morning (if she remembers) and then again at 4 pm and at bedtime. But, on the weekend, it's open season. She'll nurse all day...

    My general answer is "she didn't get the memo telling her to quit."

    Re: in pain need help

    It seems like every time new teeth start coming through, they have to learn how to keep them out of the way.

    I've never been bitten, but Katie had a sharp tooth that left a hole near one of my nipples. One thing that really helped was changing nursing positions so that her sharp tooth didn't end up in the...

    Re: Dental work and breastfeeding?

    I just had the first part of a crown. They used nitrous oxide and a local anesthetic. I told the dentist I was still nursing and he said it was no problem.

    I had a two and a half year old who had never nursed (well that she can remember, we tried for a few days) who wanted to try when her baby sister was born. I let her. She got as close as putting...

    Baby knows when you're not around. I would just do what you're doing and then expect that, when he's in daycare, the first thing he's gonna want to do when he gets home is nurse. If he's thirsty...
