    Re: How to wean almost 3 year old

    I weaned my DS just after he turned 2 by putting bandaids on my nipples and saying i had boo boos. He understood and wasn't happy, but also didn't get as upset as i thought he would. We still cuddled...
  2. Re: feeding to sleep plus frequent night wakings

    My almost 4 year old son was a terrible sleeper. We didnt want to sleep train, so I did a variation of cosleeping. He didnt sleep thru the night until the month before he turned 3 years old.

    Re: Nipples & Itching

    I'm using coconut oil to help with the dry skin and eczema.

    What kind of doctor do I see for thrush? My OB and the pediatrician?

    Nipples & Itching

    For a few months, I have had horrible eczema (in various places including my breasts). I saw a dermatologist who prescribed a steroid cream that I'm too nervous to use on my breasts. The areolas...

    Re: Period already?!

    This is so strange. I think that must be what happened to me. It lasted a day, super light, and was gone. I'm crossing my fingers it wasn't real!!

    Re: Dairy-free suggestions

    I'm dairy-free (DD was having blood in her stool and projectile vomiting). I don't worry a lot about calcium (maybe I should!), but I really wasn't consuming a lot of true dairy beforehand (I don't...

    Period already?!

    I can't believe it and I need to vent! I think my period just came back. I have super light spotting today. This would definitely explain my uber grumpiness, lack of patience, decrease in pumped...

  9. Re: Does BFing cause tooth decay? How to find pro-BFing dent

    I BF my son until he was 2 years old... ALL NIGHT LONG (lol). I didn't take him to the dentist until he was 3 (oops), but he didn't have any cavities. From the research that I have done, it seems...

    Proper way to freeze milk?

    Okay, I am being dumb. I have been freezing the extra that I pump each day (in small quantities) in breast milk bags. I didn't have the luxury of extra milk with my son, so this is new to me. I've...

    Re: Give what I pump?

    If she doesn't finish a bottle, they have to toss it after an hour. I filled them with 3 ounces, so the last half ounce from each had to be tossed. It's a licensing regulation. :-/

    Yes, I read...

    Re: Give what I pump?

    I'm glad I didn't give the extra today, because she only ate 2.5 ounces at a time, for a total of 10 ounces (with 2 ounces down the drain, sigh). And I miscalculated yesterday - I pumped 5 ounces...

    I don't see a problem with freezing it. No bacteria from his mouth and not previously frozen - I would definitely save it!

    Re: Want to wean 2-year-old co-sleeper

    I got the idea from someone here to put band aids over my nipples and tell DS that I had "boo boos" and couldn't nurse. It worked amazingly well when DS was 2 years old. I wonder if yours would buy...

    Re: Give what I pump?

    Thanks so much!!! Yep, about a 9 hour separation, so I will stick with the 12 ounces. I'm excited that 3 pump sessions might be enough - I hope that will continue to produce enough. I was having to...

    I day weaned first, since I work, so I'm not sure if it'll be the same, but... When I weaned my son just after he turned two, I think it only took about four weeks of occasional asking before he...

    I'm so excited! My insurance is completely covering a Medela Advanced Personal Double Breast Pump (ML) 57081! Medela told me it's the same motor and parts as the PISA. Sweet! :clap

    Re: Pump life

    Ohhh right! I actually forgot I would even need some for day 1, haha! I'll probably wait another 2 weeks or so. I am really dreading pumping. :-(

    I'll get a new set of flanges just in case. :-)

    Re: Pump life

    I tried it once last week for maybe 7 minutes and pumped 3 ounces. With DS, I had low supply issues and got about 3 ounces in a 20 minute session, so I think the pump is okay? I'm not really sure...

    Pump life

    I have a Medela PISA that I used with DS about 5 times a day for a year (2011-2012). It still functions, but I am not sure if it'll really do a good job this time. I go back to work in about a month....
