  1. Re: How much solids do you feed your 1 year old?


    My daughter will be 14 months old at the end of the month. She is a very picky eater and got a late start on solids at 10 months. Before that she was...
  2. Re: dropped to 25th percentile from 50th- long please advice :(

    Oh man, hang in there! I agree with the other folks: a child's weight slows considerably after the first year. It's true that she may have lost some weight due to weaning and her not being that...
  3. Re: No support for weaning; feeling alone

    I think 21 months is awesome. Only 15% of folks make to age 1, much less go as long as you did, and I'm sure your child is all the better for it. Whether you're weaning for this reason or that...
  4. Re: How much solids do you feed your 1 year old?

    When she wants to snack, she literally stays on the breast for about 10-15 seconds. It's not really about nutrition. She's a busy girl and has never been one to stay on the boob for long. The reason...
  5. How much solids do you feed your 1 year old?


    My DD just turned 1 and I'm interested in weaning her slowly. I don't want to cause her any distress, but am planning on introducing more solids as time goes on, given she is amenable to...

    Re: Is she self-weaning??


    This is all excellent info. I have decided a couple of things: 1. To chill out on the solids. I'll continue to offer solids a few times a day so that she can continue to taste...

    Re: Is she self-weaning??

    I wouldn't mind going longer than a year, but I'm not sure what to do to encourage her to eat besides put her on every couple of hours. She honestly will not just nurse just because I offer, and...

    Is she self-weaning??

    Hi mamas,

    After much thought about this, I decided to come here to ask this as I trust you guys more than anybody else!

    My 10.5 month old daughter starting doing solids 3 x day when she turned...
  9. Question re: iron levels and starting solids

    Hello all!

    I have gone really slowly with introducing solids to my now 7.5 month old. Just yesterday we started doing it twice a day, once in the morning, which we've done for about a month, and...

    Re: Bad Breastmilk?

    That is a crazy myth. Woman breastfeed in refugee camps and BF through all sorts of horrible circumstances.

    Re: Breast infection?

    Yep, sounds like a plugged duct to me. I always post this, even though it sounds absolutely ridiculous: If you have a personal massager, use it to work out the plug. I swear it works like a charm;...
  12. Re: Are shorter feedings normal after 4 mo.?

    Yep, totally normal. As they get older they get more efficient at draining the breast. I used to worry about this all the time and finally chilled out when I realized that my baby was happy and not...
  13. Re: Is something seriously wrong with me????

    I feel for you! Hope this doesn't sound too crazy, but whenever I have a plugged duct I massage it out with a massager (vibrator). Sounds ridiculous but it works everytime.

    Re: baby weight gain concerns

    I have this exact issue. DD was in the 48th percentile at birth and is now in the 25th at 4 months.. The ped is not concerned at all. DD continues to grow an inch a month in length and head...

    Re: Another question...

    Hmm...I'm wondering if your supply may be evening out, since I've heard it doesn't take too long for your supply to diminish a little after doing block feeding.

    Re: Drinking and breastfeeding

    I don't think it's a big deal as long as you wait until the alcohol has a chance to get out of your system. I don't do it very often, though, because it seems the second I take a sip of alcohol, my...

    Re: How often does your infant nurse>

    I have a 3 month old and it's 7-8 times a day. I watch the diapers closely because I'm always paranoid she's not getting enough, esp since she loves going long stretches during the day.
  18. Re: OALD, Nursing strike, don't know what to do

    Ugh. Hang in there! I still occasionally have problems like this and like a lot of the other mommas said, sometimes you have to actually latch them on while standing/rocking. I did this at a New...

    Re: never let me put her down

    Oh God, I am going through the same thing. I bought Elizabeth Pantley's "No Cry Sleep Solution" and "No Cry Nap Solution" recently. On day 1 she took 2 50 minute naps in her crib--unheard of....

    Re: Latch at 3 months vs. newborn

    I have a 3 month old and my LC always talks about how the baby's latch changes at 3 months. I'm dealing with my own feeding issues with my LO, but I had to laugh when you mentioned Newman's...

    Re: I'm in sooo much pain

    I have had this, and it def sounds like mastitis to me. If you have a nice herbal remedy store anywhere near you, I would pick up some poke root. It's a great alternative to getting on antibiotics,...

    Re: Is this reflux?

    Once in awhile burping mid-feed does help, but often times it doesn't. I've also noticed that she's started to spit up sometimes mid-feed, as in spitting up on my boob. However, she doesn't seem to...

    Re: Hand Sucking

    Yea, many times it means my daughter is hungry, but other times it's just evident that she wants to jam both of her fists in her mouth. She's starting to want to mouth everything. I try her on the...

    Re: Is this reflux?

    She's normally a lovely, happy person, only crying when she's tired or when she has this feeding issue, so even though she exhibits many symptoms of reflux, I'm just not convinced that that's it.

    Is this reflux?

    I had oald with my dd from the get go and my LC also thought my baby had reflux. I did 1 sided nursing, nursed her upright with her head turned so she could handle the flow, etc. The issue kind of...
