  1. Re: 10 months old and won't nurse when the sun is up :-)

    I agree, the reverse cycling makes sense to be because (a) he is very alert/aware/exploring/distracted during the day and (b) 4 days a week I am away at work in the daytime
    However I am EXHAUSTED...
  2. Re: Anyone Pump at work past the 12 month mark?

    By the way, I kept up a pump at work with my first son until he was 18 months, however in that situation my coworkers were not really aware that I was doing it. Only some unrelated-employees saw me...
  3. Re: 10 months old and won't nurse when the sun is up :-)

    Hi Auderey thanks.

    Currently the nighttime situation is that Baby goes to sleep about 9pm, in my bed, and proceeds to wake up with crying, approximately hourly but sometimes more/less. When he...
  4. Re: 10 months old and won't nurse when the sun is up :-)

    Thanks! i am TRYING to go with the flow but I am SO EXHAUSTED it's ridiculous. And exhaustion leads to so many other issues...
  5. Anyone Pump at work past the 12 month mark?

    I don't feel any need to "leave milk" behind after my baby turns 12 months, however I have it it mind that keeping 1 pump during my workday will allow me to continue a nice little supply to keep up...
  6. Re: 10 months old and won't nurse when the sun is up :-)

    P.S. I am not TOO panicked about his lack of eating because he is a big fella:-)
    But I want to support a health nursing relationship and it seems too soon for it to go away.... do some babies...
  7. Re: Distracted 10mo and difficult let down

    Whats this about nursing in the Ergo? With the baby in a sitting up position? Doesn't that hurt if you are walking around and baby's head is moving around?

    I also have a 10 month old not...
  8. Re: Nursing 7 1/2 mo old and going to work part time

    My advice is: Wait and see what happens, and then work from there.

    Some babies refuse the bottle at first but then warm up to it. There are many options, so many types of bottles, sippy cups,...
  9. 10 months old and won't nurse when the sun is up :-)

    Any creative ideas? It's been progressing in this direction for weeks/months but this past weekend my 10-month old son was basically REFUSING to nurse during the daytime (other than before one of...
  10. Re: Pumping at Work (Moved from 0-3month forum)

    Hello, just to add another reply:

    Nothing boosts milk output like adding in another pump session-- that could be another pump at work, or at home.
    I find that pumping in the morning before work I...
  11. Re: Breastfeeding in Public: Why is it still so taboo??

    YOU ROCK.

    And think of what you wrote here:

    "I RARELY ever see another mother nursing in the park"

    Just think of how another new mom would feel to see you nursing!-- she'd think (as I have...

    Re: Back to work and pumping amount.

    p..s I also add in a quick pump before I leave the house-- I find my supply is often best earlier in the morning, and I can get a nice bottle pumped at 7am before I dash out the door.

    GOOD LUCK!!

    Re: Back to work and pumping amount.

    Just to throw in my experience for reference-

    after I returned to work , with my first, I started finding that nursing would lead to him being frustrated and pulling off soon.

    I feared that he...
  14. Too many feedings... too LITTLE sleep!! (help!)

    Ladies, I am exhausted. I don't even have the energy to night-wean although I suspect that is what I need to do.

    I work 4 days a week (up at 6am and back home at 6pm those days). Sometimes I am...

    Re: What do I say?

    It's fine if it's thawed and warmed up. Biggest risk there is that if the baby does NOT eat it and it's been warm & 6 hours has passed... then might need to toss it. But it's probably worth that...

    Thanks ladies!!!

    I agree, 16 oz is awesome, I feel blessed to bring home that much. 19oz had me feeling like Super-Milk-Mom. :-)

    I have a pretty good day care provider (my husband) so he...

    4 month old... nursing much less...

    I was wondering if it could be normal for a 4 month old to shift (lower) how much milk he wants/needs? I was not expecting any decrease in the overall milk consumption until much later.

    I think he...

    Re: need help pump and bottle weaning

    Two comments... I don't know if you'll get to see this but I hope so :-)

    #1 - you are smart to think about avoiding plugged ducts. That would definitely be a risk if you started pumping like...

    Signs of readiness at 4 months old??

    I know many pediatricians give the green light to start solids at 4 months, but I had no intention to :-) The guidelines I felt comfortable with indicated 6 months was a good age for introduction,...
  22. When can you (or did YOU) go on Demand?

    When can you (or when did you personally) switch from watching the clock for feedings to feeding on demand.

    I was nursing a LOT (18 times a day) but as soon as my son's weight gain looked good I...
  23. Re: 3 day old baby. Boobs rock-hard and painful. Baby losing weight. ?!*@!*

    THANK YOU LADIES for your encouragement especially!

    I am so happy to report that after a weekend of nursing-like-a-wild-woman (18 times a day) I was able to see "normal" amounts of pees and poos...
  24. Re: 3 day old baby. Boobs rock-hard and painful. Baby losing weight. ?!*@!*

    Thank you!

    I am so frustrated right now - just offered an ounce of pumped milk (right after nursing) at 2:30am and he would not take it!
    I am LOATHE to throw out this entire ounce :-( I pumped...

    Thanks Karen!

    I am still having engorgement problems but the situation improves daily ,with less rocky areas and more soft areas-- so hopefully if I keep up my efforts with that, it will continue...
