  1. Re: "No milk in it" says my nursing a 2.5 year old

    My doctor has zero knowledge of breastfeeding and I had to tell him what birth control pill and dosage I needed. He was not one bit concerned with my cycles when I saw him last. I did have a blood...
  2. Re: "No milk in it" says my nursing a 2.5 year old

    A few months ago I went 92 days without a period. This past month I had light spotting when I expected a period....and that was it, it's been 2 weeks since and no bleeding. Generally I'm between 28...
  3. Re: "No milk in it" says my nursing a 2.5 year old

    Occasionally I will nurse at night if he asks. He is to the point where he rarely asks now and I like it that way. I have not had regular cycles yet since he was born and I would really like them...
  4. "No milk in it" says my nursing a 2.5 year old

    Hi and thank you for the great resource.

    My 2.5 year old son loves to nurse, but I try to limit to just bed time and nap time. I make exceptions to that, however.

    Lately he's been telling me...

    Re: Dropping our last session

    Thanks, it's not my first time to consider weaning. I know he's old enough and whatever choices we make are okay and our own business. I remember a time before I had kids where I thought nursing a...

    Re: Dropping our last session

    We night weaned by using the don't offer/don't refuse for the first week or so and then the "nursies when the sun shines" and it was magically easy. I try to be more respectful of people than my...

    Dropping our last session

    I am nursing my 2.5 year old. I think I'm ready to be done. He loves to nurse, however. He was telling my mom on the phone yesterday "I love nursies!" just randomly out of the blue.

    I get...
  8. Re: Too much going on! I feel resentment towards my son

    I wanted to post an update since it's been four months since I made this post. Wow, it's good to be able to look back on how I was feeling then. My son has cut down his nursing significantly. We...
  9. "Extended Breastfeeding" Statistics?

    Are there any statistics available for children breastfed beyond the first year? I have had no problems finding percentages of children breastfed at 6 months or 12 months, but beyond 12 months and...
  10. Re: How often does your 2-3 year old nurse?

    My 2.3 year old only nurses 1-2 times in a 24 hour period. I led the night weaning process just very recently and only nurse him if he asks and always before bed. I think if I didn't offer before...
  11. Re: Underweight 2 year old. Allergies? Mal-absorption?

    We have gone back and forth from giving him snacks in the night. Albeit, never a "meal", it has mostly been quick things and carb loaded (dry cheerios/piece of bread). He complained he was hungry...
  12. Underweight 2 year old. Allergies? Mal-absorption?

    This is really only breastfeeding related because we still breastfeed and recently night weaned but I want to know what you guys think.

    My son turned two in March. I took him to his wellness...

    Re: Night-weaning questions

    Yes, exactly this. I am wondering if it needs to be consistent always.



    So yes, I don't know! Maybe....depending on how far it would set us back.

    Night-weaning questions

    I think I've made the decision to night wean my 26 month old son. About two weeks ago I started really making an effort not to nurse him in the middle of the night, then he got sick and was having a...
  15. Re: Very small toddler - 21 months/18lbs

    Update: our 2 year exam went just fine! Our pediatrician showed me that he grew more from 18-24mo than he did from 12-18mo (by 4oz)!!

    He scored around the age of a 3 year old on the developmental...
  16. Re: Very small toddler - 21 months/18lbs

    I actually just started reading "kiss me!" off of another recommendation, I'm hoping he touches a bit on that in that book!! Thanks!
  17. Re: Very small toddler - 21 months/18lbs

    Oh, and our pediatrician uses the CDC charts which makes my boy even farther off the charts than he actually is. I have come to terms with the fact that he will not end up on the charts for height...
  18. Re: Very small toddler - 21 months/18lbs

    Just wanted to update, as I am feeling the anxiety of his 2 year check being only one week away.

    He has grown since I last posted: At 24mo he is 30.3" tall and 19.5lbs (which is about 1lb and...
  19. Re: Too much going on! I feel resentment towards my son

    Just want to say thank you.

    We are no longer talking of weaning him, which was my decision. It makes me so sad to think of taking his nursies away from him. We are still having a difficult time...
  20. Re: Too much going on! I feel resentment towards my son

    I agree!! It's also very difficult not to get frustrated, and then I get even more upset with myself for feeling that frustration! He's just a little kid. Boundaries are good. We started...
  21. Re: Too much going on! I feel resentment towards my son

    I know it won't improve his behavior. His nursing is just obnoxious most of the time - he wants to latch and unlatch a trillion times and get down and play and then come back. His nursing manners...
  22. Too much going on! I feel resentment towards my son

    There are changes going on in our lives right now. My almost-two year old is potty learning and he has become very defiant towards us and sometimes mean. He hits us and talks back - typical two...
  23. Re: Very small toddler - 21 months/18lbs

    Thank you both for your input. I will likely ask for a referral if he doesn't have a good growth spurt in the next few months :)
  24. Re: Very small toddler - 21 months/18lbs

    Thank you all! We still have three months until his 2 year check. His pediatrician said at his 18 month check that he expects him to be back on the (bottom of the) charts by his next check up....and...
  25. Re: Very small toddler - 21 months/18lbs

    Thank you for your response!! He's very well on track emotionally and developmentally. He's speaking well and is very strong and has good motor skills, etc. He was kind of a late walker (14 months)...
