    Re: When did your cycle become regular again?

    I second you on the moodiness. Pre-pregnancy I was rarely bothered by any symptoms of PMS, and often times I could contribute those I did have to lack of sleep or some other source. Now PMS...

    When did your cycle become regular again?

    I've been getting my period for about 6 months now, and DS is only nursing 1-3 times a day, and more on the weekends (I'm a WOTH mom). My cycle is all over the map, both in the length of the cycle...

    Ds is ONE today!

    We made it, we are still nursing at one year! And I wanted to give a big :hug to LLL and this forum for helping us make it! Living in a rural area, with the nearest LLL group 30 miles away, it is...

    Re: What is your 12 month old eating?

    My technique for getting my DS to learn to feed himself is to just keep offering. First he'll play, then he'll start using the tool himself. This is what I did with the cup, and what I'm doing with...
  5. Is DS weaning himself, and should I be cocerned about calcium intake?

    Hi all, I am thinking DS is self-weaning from what I've read here, but I am unsure (both denial and first-time mom insecurity). For the past month to six weeks DS, who just turned 11 months, has had...

    Re: Which pump?

    I have THREE PIS! I work full time, so I pump on a regular schedule, and the PIS is worth every penny. For someone pumping at work, double pumping is essential. AND, the PIS is completely...

    Re: Delightful Surprises!

    Oh my gosh what a great idea! I get terrible cracked lips (I chew my lips when I'm bored or nervous) and I've tried every lip balm under the sun to heal them. I'll have to try some lansinoh on them...

    Re: dr recommended weaning???

    I live in small town Minnesota, and my Ped. said almost the same thing! He told me that child-led weaning is a "bad idea" because I'll dry up and my DS will just be using me as a pacifier. I...

    Re: snotty nose

    I agree that it sounds like his little nose isn't feeling too hot too. My DS also was a noisy nasal breather for the first few weeks. A good test I was tipped to was if they can nurse, don't worry,...

    Re: Why am I gaining weight?

    Your body is still in a state of hormonal flux right now, so it's not time to be alarmed that you haven't started "melting" those maternal stores away just yet. Give your body a chance.

    I agree...

    Re: Doesn't like solids--what should I do?

    Those first few weeks of solids aren't really for nutrition, but more for experimentation. Baby is still getting all his nutrition from the BM, and at this stage of the game the solids aren't yet...

    Re: Pediatrician's advice versus my research

    Remember, all of the things out there on feeding babies are "guidelines," not rules. You are right, follow your heart and your baby's lead.

    As for the MIL, it's an argument you'll never win. ...
  15. Re: When do I start thinking about introducing the bottle?

    Five weeks is a great time. By then your supply should be well developed and you and your baby should be relatively secure in your nursing relationship. Here's a couple of tips about bottles:

    Re: Trouble with Latching

    Couple of ideas here. First, your baby's tongue should be over his lower gums and somewhat between your breast and his lower lip. This is why babies with teeth can't bite while they are actively...

    Re: how much EBM does she need?

    That calc. is a pretty good guideline. My LO is at daycare from 8-5, which is 9 hours, and he takes 2 7oz. bottles and I nurse him at noon. Initially we started with 5 oz bottles, but he started to...
  19. Re: Daycare says breastfeeding over lunch will be an inconvenience

    I also live in MN, and when I was interviewing I asked if they would support me coming to nurse at noon. I tossed everyone that said no.

    BTW, all providers in MN were sent a notice by the Dept....

    Re: breast shields

    Nipple shields have their place and can be an extremely useful tool, like to protect severely cracked nipples or to draw out flat or inverted nipples. But like a PP said, don't use them without a LC...

    One way to gracefully handle the situation is to ask your doctor about it. Simply say the nurse retracted the foreskin and you were under the impression that this was not a recommended practice. ...
  22. Re: Having a life...............and still breast feeding?!

    I would agree with the PP that up until 4-6 weeks it's tough to get out because of how long baby nurses. After that things are a bit more predictable and the length of the nursing is starting to...

    My first thought here was growth spurt! You haven't said if you are nursing more, but if she does seem to want to nurse more frequently than normal I wouldn't rule out a growth spurt. As far as...

    Re: Sleeping Through The Night

    PS

    Hold off on the bottles for a bit too, until your baby is again, 4-6 weeks old. Nursing at the breast is different from sucking from a bottle, and you want to be sure your baby has learned how...

    Re: Sleeping Through The Night

    Congrats on the new LO!

    If you aren't painfully engorged, eating on one side should be fine. Pumping the other side would be a great option as well.

    I haven't ever heard of anyone having a...
