  1. Re: Grapes and Poop-This is Gross, So Read at Your Own Risk!

    My mom warned me the first time I fed my son bananas not to freak out - many moms freak out thinking their child has a parasite or something. It's not. Totally bananas. :)

    Re: Looking ahead: mother-led weaning?

    I did exactly what you're talking about. I pumped up through 9 months, and after that I was nursing 3 times a day up through a year, at which point, I was ready to stop. I usually come home for...

    Re: Share your leaking stories here!!!

    In the beginning, I also leaked at work, though a military UNIFORM shirt, no less, and it was terribly, terribly obvious. Same as you - I teach (college math) and was pumping twice a day. It got me...

    Re: Still waking at night!!!

    See my post on the sleep forum - we recently had a breakthrough which involved DH. Once he started putting DS to bed, all of the sudden, the night-waking stopped. Maybe a coincidence...maybe not. ...

    Re: drying up

    Wow - same thing here. I weaned gradually, and went for a few weeks of before-bed nursings before finally stopping 11 days ago. After 5 days of nothing, all of the sudden one of my breasts (my main...

    Re: You gave her WHAT?

    Oh, I hear you! My MIL lives with us, and I've had to do this often. She just grew up on a different diet - I've tried explaining the difference between whole wheat vs. enriched flour, fresh fruit...

    I'm sure many people will probably disagree with what I ended up doing, but for what it's worth...

    I started giving whole milk at a year and my DS wasn't having it - I was still nursing 1-2 times...

    Re: Can I get my period back without weaning?

    I'm working through this same thing. I'm about 13 months into nursing. I stopped pumping at 9 months and was breastfeeding 3 times a day until 11 months, when I went to two times a day. As 12...

    Re: Interruptions While Pumping

    I pumped for about 8 months before I gave it up...I share an office with a (male) collegue, so I would pump if our scheduled allowed for that to happen (I'm a college instructor). I would close the...

    Re: Question about teeth and BFing...

    My son's teeth started coming in at 6 months (bottom two), quickly followed by the top two at 8 months. It was the top two that really bothered me - I found two things:

    1. I just had to keep...

    Re: Need ideas for 10-month-old

    About apples - I just discovered those steamer bags in the grocery store, and microwaved an apple in it for about 2 minutes - voila! Instant soft, hot (gotta let it cool), sweet apple to cut up...my...

    Re: How much BM for 10+ month olds?

    I'm not sure how much my son is getting, since he started refusing bottles about 1-2 months ago. So we nurse in the morning, lunchtime, dinner, and before bed, with each nursing session followed by...
  14. Re: Loving Solids, but now refusing the bottle

    Sounds like good advice, everyone; thank you! He's been off and on for the last few days...yesterday he finally took EBM in a bottle, after yesterday refusing it entirely. I think he's just being...
  15. Loving Solids, but now refusing the bottle

    I'm at my wits end. My son, 9 months old, is very into solids...loves feeding himself little pieces of broccoli, cheerios, and pasta, and will take most purees that I spoon feed him.

    Currently,...

    Poll: Re: When did you eliminate nighttime feedings?

    At 8 months and DS started sleeping from 8 pm until 5 or 6 am. From months 0-5 we were doing a 9 pm, midnight, 3 am, and 6 am feeding. From months 5-8 we dropped everything except the 3 am feeding,...

    I would take a different approach than many listed here. Sounds like a direct approach might be called for. I'd recommend doing a face-to-face, and in all sincerity, tell her exactly what you told...

    Bleeding Nipples from Biting

    The good news: we're at the 9-month mark. Yay!
    The bad news: we have 5 teeth, and are starting to bite. Hard. Boo.

    I could post this under "Dealing with Criticism," "Sleep (or lack of it!)" or the "Parenting" boards, but since it's all categories in one, I'll try here:

    Re: Please help, teething is terrible!!!

    Regarding teething tablets - we REALLY like them, too. I only give them to DS when he's really hurting, but he hears the bottle rattling, and immediately starts to calm down, they're that effective.
  25. Do I need to introduce water now that we're starting solids?

    After starting Jack on Avocados and bananas, his bowels slowed WAAAAY down. Grunting, straining...no poop. I introduced Gerber prunes, which he gobbled up, and pooped about a day later (finally!)
