    Weaning feelings

    I suppose with this post I am sharing and inviting comments and discussion, rather than asking for help, as I think I am pretty much settled on what's going on, just feel the need to share a bit!

    Re: Frequent waking during naps

    I have the same routine with my son, and usually have to hold him for that second hour. I stressed about whether he 'should' be sleeping in his cot (crib) at one point, but then decided it was a good...

    Re: weird pain - any ideas?

    Think I've found it! There's a tiny bump just behind my nipple. Hope that means it's on its way out :)

    Re: weird pain - any ideas?

    Just had a look at those, and do think maybe it could be a plug. My son has (finally, at 17 months!) started sleeping some longer 6 to 8 hour stretches at night in the last couple of weeks, but...

    Re: weird pain - any ideas?

    Thanks! I'll have a look at those links. Starting to feel a slight tenderness to the touch but just around the nipple area. Still wondering whether maybe there's some bruising or something I can't...

    Re: weird pain - any ideas?

    No, definitely not pinching, but I wouldn't put that past him so i'll keep it in mind! :-). Also don't think it has to do with letdown, it starts as soon as he latches on, and is worst then, and the...

    weird pain - any ideas?

    For the last few days I've been having a sharpish pain on one side of my left breast while feeding. At first I suspected my toothy toddler's latch was to blame, but there are no teeth marks, and...
  8. Re: Won't take breast milk from sippy.

    My son won't drink EBM from a bottle or a sippy, or cow's milk. At the moment he is still nursing enough that it doesn't matter. My understanding is, however, that they don't need to have cow's milk...
  9. Re: You know you're nursing a toddler when...

    He takes a break so his foot can 'nurse' (with sound effects).

    He says 'Mama, brrrnnn, brrrnnn (balloon)', then tilts your nipple upward so you can blow it up. When you say 'It's not a balloon,...
  10. Re: Urgent advice needed, 11 mnth old bi

    Since I posted this, I read the LLLI faq on biting, which says it's almost never weaning related. I have tried all those ideas already, but will persevere! Any thoughts, advice, similar experiences...
  11. Urgent advice needed, 11 mnth old biting

    Hi there

    My 11 month old son has developed a bad biting habit in the past few weeks, which has gotten worse and is interfering with feeds now. He had 4-5 feeds day, and in the past few days has...

    Re: Reversing "Reverse Cycling?"

    I've just posted in the weaning forum about something similar in my 7 month old, who has been tending to eat a lot of solids during the day and nurse at night (leaving me full in the evening and...
  13. Re: how many feeds a day at 7.5 months?

    Thanks for the support - all sounds just like us! I've only been doing the pantley pull off for a few weeks consistently, and he went through a phase of rolling over and falling asleep after nursing,...
  14. Re: how many feeds a day at 7.5 months?

    thanks for that! I have been offering him breastmilk before his meals but I think I need to create a very boring environment somewhere where he doesn't get distracted! Since he is a very enthusiastic...
  15. how many feeds a day at 7.5 months?

    Just wondering what the 'normal' minimum number of feeds tends to be for a 7.5 month old? My son is eating three meals a day, finger feeding most of his food, and eating a fair amount (i let him...

    Re: Sleep regression?

    ps that health visitor also recommended putting him in his own room at six months and doing controlled crying, which she said would 'work a treat'. Somehow I don't think I could face him vomiting...

    Re: Sleep regression?

    i did a lot of the same reading, and asked a health visitor about it who seemed sceptical, but said my son's issues sounded normal. For a while, I was able to put him in a Moses basket/bassinette for...
  18. Re: just curious: milk coming out of baby's nose

    just returned to this post after months and saw this reply - that's great, thanks for the info, I love it.
  19. just curious: milk coming out of baby's nose

    just wondering, has anyone else had the experience of milk coming out of their baby's nose during feeding? my son is 11wks old and this has happened 3 or 4 times, whe he has coughed or burped while...

    thanks! i did some daily pumping after being encouraged by responses to my post and not only did my supply increase, my baby seems to have enjoyed the bit of extra on offer as a result!

    Re: thrashing/crying fits at breast

    no definite solution, but can express some solidarity! my lo does the same from time to time, and i have found it seems to be any of variety of reasons: slow letdown/breast being mainly drained...
  22. Re: afraid to pump between feeds and reduce supply available to baby

    thanks to both for encouragement, I'll try to put aside that worry and now just need to find a time in the morning when I can settle and do it!
  23. afraid to pump between feeds and reduce supply available to baby

    I have been attempting to expess milk so my partner can share in the enjoyment of feeding our baby, and so I can have a reserve to allow me to go out without my baby from time to time. I've really...
