  1. Re: 3 years, 3 months and going strong

    Thank you three for your kind words here. This really is a tribe like no other! I'm so grateful.
  2. Re: What happens if you don't night wean?

    Such a good question, one that I've wondered off and on myself. My DS is 3 years and 4 months old, and I've never tried to night wean or really alter his nighttime nursing. I think it's different for...
  3. 3 years, 3 months and going strong

    Mamas, I have been reading these forums (and posting occasionally) since my DS was a few months old.

    This afternoon, after a bumpy morning with my in-laws visiting and DS having lots of big...

    Re: Anyone nursing a 4 year old?

    Nodding my head at what the others have said! My DS is 3 years, 3 months, so not quite a 4 year old, but he is also very sensitive and I can't imagine him being ready for a solo class any time soon....
  5. Re: Moving to a new house and 18 month old to own room?

    I completely understand the desire to have your room back after bedtime. For at least 18 months my clothes ended up in a pile on the floor because I didn't want to wake our DS with the creaky closet...
  6. 3 nights away from nursing 2-y-o - first time advice?

    I can't believe it, but I'm finally ready for my first overnight away from my nursing toddler. He'll be staying with his daddy while I'm away on a work trip for 4 days/3 nights.

    Here are the key...
  7. Re: "Big boys don't drink milk anymore"

    joshuas.mommy - I know, it seems strange but unfortunately this kind of situation happens more than you'd think in immigrant families. DH and his mom immigrated to the US when he was a few months...
  8. Re: "Big boys don't drink milk anymore"

    Thank you all for your support and indignation. It feels good to know that my massive irritation isn't completely unfounded!

    Mammi, I'm sorry that you had that negative experience with the other...
  9. "Big boys don't drink milk anymore"

    I need a long-term perspective check.

    I'm pretty sure this is one of those parenting moments when it would be best for me to chill out and trust the strong bond between myself and my son. He's...

    (After seeing what happened at the rest of the Oscars (especially the boobs number), I feel like I should elaborate on my DS's Oscar commentary! His exclamation was purely gleeful, as if he was...
  11. Re: You know you're nursing a toddler when...

    When you watch a little bit of the Oscars with your almost two-year-old and he points at the screen and says with giggling delight, "Nyuks!" (milks). I realized that he was commenting on some of the...
  12. Overactive letdown, still?? (20 months)

    In your experience, is it possible to have an overactive letdown at 20 months? I've always had a strong flow of milk (plus oversupply in the beginning), and it seems like my LO still has to manage a...
  13. Re: You know you're nursing a toddler when...

    That one-two pupple line is so amazing - what a cutie!!

    Still no names from my nursling, but he has started to interrupt nursing sessions to push my breast up toward my face, indicating that I...
  14. Re: First case of thrush at 15 mos.?

    Thanks so much, you two. It's great to have reasonable advice - so many sites are addressing early thrush cases and therefore recommend all the really intense solutions.

    I'm continuing this...
  15. First case of thrush at 15 mos.?

    Y'all. Seriously. This sucks. DS is 15 months old, and we've never had thrush... until now.

    I'm hoping it's not thrush, but it sure seems like it.

    Here's why I think it's early thrush:
  16. Hormonal roller coaster with shifts in nursing

    My 14 mo is spending more time with a sitter these days, but we're not on a regular schedule. Some days it's 9-1, some 10-1, some not at all.

    Yesterday, DS was at the sitter's 9-1, then fell...
  17. How much water for a 13 month old?

    I am such a first-timer. It's kind of adorable. Even though my DS is now 13 months, I still get nervous and over-cautious when relatives give him water when he's thirsty instead of BM. I have no...
  18. Re: You know you're nursing a toddler when...

    When your 13 month old tries to twiddle the other nipple... With his toes.

    (I tried so hard not to laugh! This is one nursing manner that I'll have to say no to.)

    Re: Pressure to Stop Nursing

    I remember reading a story in "The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding" in the early months that has haunted me for a full year. A mother was talking about how her entire community had pressured her to stop...

    I can't believe I'm posting here! I've been reading this thread joyfully since month 2 or 3, and now I'm here.

    Year Two, here we go!

    Yesterday was my DS's first birthday, and my first birthday as a mom. Yippee!!!

    These forums were an enormous part of my first year of mothering and breastfeeding. I came here when I was worried...

    Re: What would you do?

    I have heard that breast milk applied to the eyes is actually very efficient at curing pink eye. You might give it a try as well, since it is certainly compatible with breastfeeding!

    The bank to which I donate included that guideline in their info - maybe the rules vary from bank to bank. It looks like the guideline in that PDF about washing twice with hot water is the substitute...

    Re: Donating Milk?

    So great of you to consider donating! I've been donating through the local HMBANA bank and have really enjoyed it. As the PP said, you do have to sterilize your pump gear daily, which is really the...
  25. Never knew I'd be sentimental about poop

    DS is 10 months and 23 days old, and just in the last week has he really started chowing down on some solids. So much so that his poops have gotten more and more solid and, well, grown up. (It is a...
