    Poll: Re: When did your period come back?

    Mine came back last week. We had been nursing 2x/day since DD was around 13 mos. At 15 mos, she weaned herself. It was SO nice not having to deal with AF for two years!

    Re: Weaning is here... so is AF!

    Hi! Just a note to say I can relate. DD has decided she isn't interested in nursing anymore. Kind of breaks my heart a little. But at the same time, I'm proud we were able to nurse for 15 months, and...
  3. Re: My LC (an LLL leader) told me DD is weaning!

    :) Thanks Shannon.
  4. My LC (an LLL leader) told me DD is weaning!

    When I called my LC to talk about what my 15 mo old DD is doing ... wriggling away when I try to nurse her, gently biting my nipple, smiling and playing with my nipple ... I was really surprised that...

    Re: Baby not drinking much whole milk?!

    Try yogurt, cottage cheese, and watered-down OJ with calcium.
  6. Re: 12 month old still nursing 4-5 times each night

    If he's eating solids and nursing every 3 hours during the day, I don't think he's waking because he's hungry. It sounds like he's just used to nursing 4-5 times a night. You can try to change that...

    Is my 15 mo old weaning?

    DD is just about 15 mos. Since around 12 mos, she's nursed twice a day (in the morning and before bed). In the past few weeks, I've felt like I've had to chase her and get her to nurse in the...

    Is my 15-mo-old self-weaning?

    DD is just about 15 mos. Since around 12 mos, she's nursed twice a day (in the morning and before bed). In the past few weeks, I've felt like I've had to chase her and get her to nurse in the...
  9. Re: If I'm still having problems BFing at 5 1/2 mos, do you think I always will?

    When we're not nursing, she sticks her tongue out and it looks like my tongue when I stick it out. And both LCs I saw say she doesn't have a tongue tie problem. One LC said she may have a high...
  10. Re: If I'm still having problems BFing at 5 1/2 mos, do you think I always will?

    I'd LOVE to hear how she fixed the latch.
  11. If I'm still having problems BFing at 5 1/2 mos, do you think I always will?

    DD never had the best latch. And I really tried to correct it -- with the help of two LCs -- but haven't gotten a better latch. Her two bottom teeth came in about a month ago, and I really think...
  12. Re: Help! Recurring milk blisters/blebs. Very painful.

    I've actually wondered about my bra. I don't use underwire. However, my nursing bras press my nipples down. Does that mean my bra is too constricting?
  13. Re: Grapefruit seed extract for recurring milk blisters/blebs

    Thanks again, Carol.

    Should I rinse my nipple of the olive oil/GSE before nursing?
  14. Re: Help! Recurring milk blisters/blebs. Very painful.

    Hi Carol,

    Do you really think it's positioning versus latch from what I said above? We're good at the cradle hold and I can nurse lying down. I can't get the hang of the football hold though....
  15. Grapefruit seed extract for recurring milk blisters/blebs

    I believe the Dr. Sears web site says massaging the nipple with GSE and olive oil can help to heal and prevent recurring milk blisters/blebs. The web site says mix "a few drops of GSE" with olive...
  16. Re: Help! Recurring milk blisters/blebs. Very painful.

    Thank you both for commenting. I have a few theories on the underlying cause. I'd love to hear what you think ...

    Theory 1:
    I had an IBCLC come in to help us in my daughter's 3rd week. (The IBCLC...
  17. Help! Recurring milk blisters/blebs. Very painful.

    This is SUCH a frustrating problem! My daughter is 15 weeks now, and for the past month or two, I get a *cluster* of milk blisters on my left breast. It feels like nails being driven through my...
