    Re: About to cry

    I never supplmented, but I did exclusively pump for about 3 months. Those were the worst 3 months of my life, constant mastitis. I felt like it would never work, and I would have to give formula. ...

    Re: Nursing Actually Going Well

    Good luck! My labor was wonderful and everything was going great. When it came time to push, the cord came out before the baby (cord prolapse). There is a 1/100,000 chance of this happening. So,...

    Re: Won't take bottle, sippy or cup

    My DD completely refused cow milk until we were close to being weaned at about 16 months. At that point, we were down to only a couple of nursings per day. As long as you give other calcium rich...
  6. Re: Pediatrician recommends to stop nursing 18 month old

    My doctor told me my milk was "non-nutritious" after a year, and insisted I quit breastfeeding. I nodded "yes" and did what I knew was right for my child. Your doctor is not a part of your family. ...

    Re: Ped suggested to wean

    This is obviously not a pro-breastfeeding doctor. I would change doctors.

    Re: baby falls asleep

    Mine was able to nurse and sleep at the same time. I let her nurse just about all the time, and she always did very well with weight gain.

    Increased Nursing

    My daughter has always been an avid nurser. I remember at about 10 months, I was worried because she seemed to be nursing more often. Then, it started to decrease, and I thought she was ready to...

    Re: 7 mos old hates avocado

    The entire first year is for taste and texture only, not for nutritional purposes. So, I would offer it once per week, but I wouldn't push to hard.

    FYI: My baby didn't like any pureed foods. I...

    Re: Why pump ?

    I agree with leecee 100%. It is a horrible thing to go through. And, it is so hard hearing your baby cry because they want the bottle and you want to breastfeed. You almost feel like a bad mother...

    Re: 8.5 month old doesn't chew?

    My daughter didn't show much interest in any foods until about 10 months. Then, she went right into actual foods. I think every baby is different. I wouldn't worry yet. But to be safe, you may...

    Now at the age of 1, she mainly only nurses around nap and bed time. So, we don't nurse in public much anymore. The only time I do is if she is hurt and nothing else will calm her.

    This sounds normal for the first couple of months. Feedings start spacing out more at 6-8 weeks. Hang in there. It's worth it! Put a few movies in the VCR, grab a lot of water, and enjoy the time...
