    Re: Pump options

    Re: DS hits himself in head while nursing?!

    I think the best way to stop your son from doing anything you don't want him to do is not to react too much. You can gently redirect him to do something else by encouraging him to hold your hand or...

    Re: Refusing bed and the breast!

    I'm so sorry you're having a hard time! We rely so much on the "Num Nums" curing everything--it's really alarming when they don't. Luckily all these things pass. Best of luck and strength while...

    Re: Allergies? Go to formula?

    So sorry you're going thru this! Maybe gas? My son had GAS like crazy! We were up with him seemed like all night sometimes. And at 23 months, he's still pretty gassy, tho there was a big...
  8. Re: May have to stop bf! Vaeh's not gaining much weight...

    I'm so sorry you have to deal with yet another uneducated (in bfing!) doctor. It seems that there are few out there that know anything about it at all! I would speak to the Lactation Consultant...

    Re: Breastfeeding past the age of two.

    I was so very moved by the responses to this post! Rebecca, your words about your child's "future inner child" were just lovely. And Anne, you are so right--our children are so little and for such a...

  11. Re: nursing position changes for growing toddler?

    My 22mo old son has a new one this month. He straddles my lap facing me, which puts him at just the right height. He wraps his arms around me and hugs while he nurses. It's really sweet. But...

    ...and as far as fat intake, your breast milk is still supplying him with most of the nutrients he needs as long as he stays at one breast long enough to get the rich hind milk. He just needs those...

    Re: i couldn't believe

    Glad it's going so well for you! I introduced cow's milk at one year. My 21month old is just starting to drink it willingly! But a little at a time will get baby used to the taste. Hope you...

    Re: 15-mo old won't eat, can't sleep

    Sleeplessness sounds like teething to me, too. Especially since it's hard to get her back down. When my son has fallen asleep before dinner, he wakes just to nurse--doesn't want to stay awake. As...

    Re: getting through teething

    I totally agree with the 1st post. My son had 2 teeth at 5 mos. Unfortunately, the top 2 came in 1st. You hardly notice the bottom teeth if you have a good latch, but babies really dig in with the...
