  1. Re: No LASIK? Really? Any BF mamas experience vision changes

    Yup, my optometrist told me this. I had perfectly fine vision for a long time but developed an astigmatism after years of being pregnant and nursing.

    Re: Breastfeeding and sanity

    Do you do any baby wearing? Your baby might be old enough that you could nurse in an Ergo while walking or something.
  3. Re: Introducing a paci for airplane flight?

    I don't think it would cause a problem, but it might be really likely that she won't take it at all if she hasn't had a bottle or pacifier in her first 4 months. If she won't take it, at least you...

    Re: pump weaning a little early

    I actually pump weaned really early with DS2 and DH just offered solids and some water during the day. For us it was because he pretty much refused to take a bottle after 6 months anyway (long story)...
  5. Re: Do any blw babies develop any eating problems at all?

    I agree with the others that it's personality. We actually went to BLS with DS2 because he didn't want to eat from a spoon. We did BLS from there and wasn't really interested at all until 9 or 10...

    Re: Being a one-sided nurser

    Yup! I nursed DS2 off of one breast since he was 2 months old to now (almost 3). He just started refusing the other one, and I really tried all the tricks I could to get him to take it, but in the...

    Re: toddler not nurse as much

    We occasionally give coconut or almond milk. We opt not to give them a lot of milk because if Levi had his way he would only eat dairy all the time. He eats plenty of cheese, yogurt, etc. I don't...

    Re: weening

    8 months is prime time for highly distractable nurslings! You can try to find a quieter environment to nurse for now, but it will likely pass after a couple of months. A lot of mothers think their...

    Re: Breastfeeding friendly eating/recipies

    If you are not sticking to wheat free that might be causing the dairy issues as well. Do you have Celiac? If you have Celiac or a non-Celiac gluten intolerance your digestive system might be out of...

    Re: cold turkey??? 19 months

    I agree with others that weaning will not necessarily solve any of the problems. DS2 was on medicine for reflux until he was 2, he's a really picky eater, and at 3 he does not STTN, even though he is...
  12. Re: EPing as a choice after returning to work

    :ita Exactly this. All of us just want to make sure you have the right information and that you aren't deciding to do it based on a false assumption, like that your bottle fed baby slept better...
  13. Re: EPing as a choice after returning to work

    It sounds like you are equating good sleep to bottle feeding and I just don't think that's true. I EPed for one (not by choice, never latched) and nursed the second. I think some kids are good...
  14. Re: Pediatrician told me my baby is too fat...

    I definitely recommend the Johns Hopkins plan if it's convenient for you. Everybody I know has really loved the Johns Hopkins primary care, I have heard nothing bad. We go to the one in Odenton, but...
  15. Re: Pediatrician told me my baby is too fat...

    I agree with others about finding a new ped. I see that you are in Maryland, do you have a Johns Hopkins practice down that way? I'm in the military (Ft Meade) and we did US Family Health Plan with...

    Re: Anemia in my 15 month old

    DS2 was anemic and we did Floradix for awhile, but his iron levels actually went down while we used it. :( He also wasn't very much into eating solids, and I couldn't get him to eat anything that...
  17. Re: Still eating every 2 hours at 6 months... any suggestion

    Babies have different sleep/REM patterns, and it is normal for them to wake up a lot. At this point I wouldn't worry about what "good sleep" is from your perspective, because it's quite different for...

    Re: embarrassing question

    :ita We tell my almost 5 year old to keep penis play to his room all the time. I don't feel like it's shaming him, but I do feel like he absolutely needs to learn the time and the place for those...
  19. Re: Breastfeeding baby Maggie - creased nipples, ouch!

    I hope the ENT works out! You said this is one recommended by the LC? Levi had his tongue tie clipped at 4 days old and I'm so very much thankful for that wonderful ENT. A different ENT from the same...

    Re: Over eating and reflux

    Yeah, DS1 actually spit up WAY more and DS2 swallowed a lot down. DS2 was so miserable that we only got him off the meds at 2 years.

    Good point, I thought I read something about the baby seeming uncomfortable, but I don't really see that reading back. If milk is just coming back up but the baby isn't suffering, then there is no...

    Re: Over eating and reflux

    Yes, he had reflux. If your supply is adequate and you don't think you have oversupply, then cutting back on nursing is probably a bad idea. You could find yourself with an inadequate supply. Nursing...

    Re: Over eating and reflux

    Your Levi sounds a lot like my Levi. He had reflux, and he was a big eater and a fast gainer, but I'm pretty sure it's because I had oversupply and overactive let down. It caused him to be fussy and...

    I'm curious about some of the answers Meg asked. Was the weigh and feed before or after the frenulum being clipped? Both my boys were born with TT and DS2 had his clipped at 4 days. Before the...
