    We use Avent bottles-- good but sometimes leaky. I hated the medela ones! The gas and discomfort might well be something other than the bottle. Head on down to the allergies forum and check out the...

    Re: Help with a nursing 3 yr old

    My DS will be 3 in March and he's still nursing in the middle of the night or right when we wake up. Strangely, he has started to go a day or so without asking for milk (I think he either forgets or...

    Re: Did you or lo ever have surgery??

    DS has had surgery twice (ear tubes). The first time at 10 months was hard- the second time at 2 years was much easier. He didn't bf after about midnight but the bf was realllllly helpful as he was...
  9. Can you night-wean and still nurse to sleep?

    DS is 27 months- still nurses in the AM, after work, before bed and through the night. I'd like to cut down on the night time nursing but nursing to sleep is our reliable standby. He doesn't ALWAYS...
  10. Re: Open Space Office, where will i pump??!

    I pumped in the bathroom-- not so bad since it was a one-person room (no stalls) and I could set the pump on the counter by the sink. I've also pumped in the storage room (small but a lock on the...

    Re: Stop pumping at work

    Yep- easy peasy. I dropped down from 4xday to 3x, then 2x then nada. My lo was about 20 months at that point but my supply was dipping by then anyhow. I LOVE not pumping!!!!!! Supply adjusted within ...

    I guess as a young'un, I had some health issues and my mom had some supply issues and, once she got me out of the hospital, she had to go to the LLL ladies for some wet nursing help. It was 1972 and,...

    Re: DH's ultimatum

    My dh hasn't helped with the nights from day one. Once I realized, when ds was about 9 months, that this meant I would never sleep again, I took to co-sleeping with ds in a twin bed in the baby room....

    Re: driven near insanity via twiddling

    My 23mo DS is a hair puller. Some nights, I'll pull it back or braid it to keep it away from him. Most days, I just give in and let him grab a clump-- it's easier. I've tried dolls with hair or...

    Breakfast Ideas for 2 year old

    My ds is 23 months and is less interested in his oatmeal for breakfast these days. He can't do dairy or soy and he hasn't eaten eggs yet either. Any breakfast ideas for working mommies on the go? We...

    I'm encouraged by the support of the DHs on this board. Mine was very PRO-BF at first but at the year mark, he thought we should wean. DS is milk/soy allergic, so we agreed to continue but now with...

    Re: rice milk

    We do oatmeal with rice milk all the time. DS doesn't like the vanilla kind, so we use the plain rice milk from rice dream. I put it on my cereal too. Yummy!
