  1. Re: 2.5 year old - weaned but still asks for nurse

    Thanks, the glitter bottle has promise!

    I actually saw (I think your?) response to someone else's thread that you would let your child have the breast when he needed it... I actually have been...
  2. 2.5 year old - weaned but still asks for nurse

    I weaned my 2.5 year old a few months ago (32 months old now). He would probably have liked to keep nursing, but I am pregnant again and nursing was starting to be excruciating for me, so it had to...
  3. Pregnant and Pumping while away from Toddler

    Cross-posted from the pregnancy forum, as this one gets more traffic...

  4. Re: Pumping for toddler while away on business trip?

    My son was a bit older (around 24 months) when I went away, and we were usually down to nursing just at night (but with several night-wakings, not sure how many as we also co-sleep). I was mostly...
  5. Re: Setting limits on nursing for a 13-month old

    Thanks, this advice is helpful.

    Regarding teeth, he's definitely teething right now (front teeth actually, he's a late late teether, too! Sooo not looking forward to molars... ). But usually we...
  6. Setting limits on nursing for a 13-month old

    My DS has always nursed on demand. I work, so during the day he gets milk in a sippy cup, but when I'm home he nurses whenever he wants. He's 13 months, eats solids really well and has no problem...
  7. Re: Going away for 2 nights, when/how to pump?

    So if you are going away, or have gone away, for a few days around 15-16 months old... how did your spouse and toddler handle it? I'm trying to decide if I want to go on a business trip in a few...
  8. Bedtime and separation anxiety for 1-year old?

    Kiddo just turned 1, and we are still co-sleeping and night nursing. No plans to stop that any time soon.

    The problem lately is bedtime. I nurse, sing, and rock him to sleep in my arms, then...
  9. Re: Help!! Baby not gaining enough at 6 mo check

    Are you nursing at night also, or just during the day? I would think that you could increase the number of feedings, rather than the total oz at each feeding. Your feeding pattern sounds like mine,...

    Re: Return to work - not keeping up with baby

    Joe's Mom, yes, I'm doing all those things, and using an Ameda Purely Yours pump, bought new when DS was born. Suction is fine.

    Re: Return to work - not keeping up with baby

    Thanks, tinismom, that's an idea we hadn't thought of! We use the Tommee Tippee bottles and the slowest nipple they have, stage 1.

    Lilpats-mama, its good to hear someone else's experience at the...

    Re: Return to work - not keeping up with baby

    Tracie, 11 hours (but I nurse about an hour before I leave, since he's always hungry when he wakes up at 6).

    Your Beatrix has the same B-day as DS!

    Re: Return to work - not keeping up with baby

    Yeah, it's an 8-hour day + commuting. I feed him at 6am and again when I get home at 6pm. In between he's been taking 3 bottles (bottle every 3 hours). Yesterday his average bottle was 5 oz! DH...

    Re: Help with side-lying position

    Thanks - I'll be trying some of these tonight!

    The co-sleeper actually has a bit of a rim around it, so even if we raised the whole thing there would still be that bump to get him over. It's an...

    Re: Best positions as baby gets bigger?

    I am also starting to need new BF positions. My 4-month old started to get really fussy in our usual cross-cradle position on the Brest Friend (like screaming at my boob, screaming while burping)....
