  1. Re: Reduced supply on one side

    Thanks so much, you always have great advice and make me feel better. Yes, he's eating more solids (although it varies day by day) and doesn't nurse nearly as much (between 3-5 times a day depending...
  2. Reduced supply on one side

    Lately when I pump, I get hardly any milk from my left breast. They've always been fairly even, or maybe one produced slightly more, but not like this. For example, the last time I pumped I got 3 oz...
  3. Re: How to transition from bottle to sippy cup

    Yes, he uses a sippy cup and a straw cup for water. He's been using it for probably about 5 months or so. I like your idea of sending the sippy cup and the bottle as a back-up. I'll ask his daycare...

    My son is 14 months old and we still nurse 6-7 times a day and 3-4 times a night. My period returned just 8 weeks after giving birth, but since then it's been very irregular. After that first period...

    Re: Night waking and nursing

    Thank you for this! It does help a LOT. You're right, a change in perspective is probably the most effective and least stressful way to handle this. Anytime I try to change my son's sleeping habits,...

    Re: Night waking and nursing

    Thanks for sharing! I always like hearing about people who outgrew sleep issues. It helps me remember that whatever happens, it will eventually stop.

    Re: Night waking and nursing

    Most nights I do try this, but he's so persistent I give up, lol. He's one determined little dude. It's funny, because he gives me no trouble going in his crib at the beginning of the night or naps,...

  12. Re: Transitioning to cows milk

    Thanks, I will definitely take that into account. My son loves nursing, so I definitely don't want my supply to drop. I can keep pumping twice a day as much as I can, then slowly back down to once a...
  13. Re: Transitioning to cows milk

    Thanks so much! That definitely helps to know.

    Yes- I nurse all the time (evenings, morning, night) just not when I'm working (Monday-Friday, 8-4).

    When did you baby STTN?

    I'm just curious to hear from other breastfeeding and/or co-sleeping moms, when did your kid or kids sleep through the night? And did you do anything to encourage it or did they do it on their own? ...

    Re: Sippy cup

    Good idea, I'll try that. There's a little language barrier with our DCP, and she doesn't seem to understand why I don't want them feeding him right before I get there. She knows I breastfeed so I...

    Re: Sippy cup

    Thanks, that makes sense. I guess there's no need to rush.

    As for work, I'm gone for 9 hours from the time I leave to when I pick him up. But he hasn't seemed hungry when we get home anymore. I've...
