    Re: Breast affection...

    Awwww..... that "breast affection" is SOOOOOO cute!!! My DS has never done that, but he is a "twiddler" with the opposite side, like a previous poster mentioned. He must always have contact with both...
  2. Re: We're all done, but I have some questions...

    I don't remember how long it takes "the girls" to shrink down, but I don't remember it being more than a month or so.

    A paci can be a hard habit to break. On the other hand, he may be needing some...

    Re: Weaning 18th month old

    My friend was doing several night feedings, too, and she still wanted to BF, just not all through the night. So, she'd nurse right at bed time, and then say, "Nummers is going night-night. Nummers...
  4. Re: I think We're finished with BF - And I'm devastated!

    I thank all of you so much for the kind and supportive words. I'm crying all over again, but your words mean so much. (And, yes, probably part of it is hormonal.) ;)

    Well, just when I was...

  6. I think We're finished with BF - And I'm devastated!

    I haven't been on these message boards in ages. For the first 6 months of my son's life, I was here several hours a day for the support and advice I so needed. Everyone here was so wonderful. I...

  8. Re: Switching sides every other suck - just playing??

    Thanks so much. I love that.

    This morning, with it being a weekend and Daddy's still in bed, he'd dive in for the right boob, sit up, dive in for the left boob, sit up, then dive for Daddy, sit...
  9. Need help preparing for a trip to the IN-LAWS!!!

    Next week I leave to go see my inlaws. My MIL has been telling me since DS was a month old that "I didn't need to BF," "Why put yourself through that?" "Formula is just as good", "You're not still...
  10. Switching sides every other suck - just playing??

    My DS is now 13 months old, and he's started a new thing - Whenever I'm BFing him, he'll take two sucks off one side, two sucks off the other, then switch back and forth, back and forth. Sometimes...

    DS won't take a sippie cup.

    My son won't take a sippie cup. Or a bottle. Or a regular cup. I'd love to supplement BFing with water during these hot, dry summer months, but it's a toy to him. He chews on them and laughs. Anyone...

    Re: More nursing than eating solids

    My son is just now going through that, too. My very supportive doctor said that it's because the babyfoods aren't as much bang for the buck with regards to calories and nutrients, and the babies know...

    Re: Raging Thrush - On baby's thumb??

    Yes, it's only on his thumb - and only on his left thumb - the one that he sucks. It doesn't quite look like Excema, and it doesn't itch like excema. I used to think it was just chapped, but...

    Irritable Breast Syndrome

    Does anyone else here have what I call "Irritable Breast Syndrome"????

    Most parents and doctors will tell you that Mylicon doesn't really do anything. Most babies are very gassy by nature... It's because they have immature digestive systems. If the gas appears to be...
