    Re: Looks like we're weaned!

    Thanks everyone!

    I might have jinxed myself a little by posting this prematurely. I did nurse this morning very briefly when she woke up upset (this round of teething is a real killer), but it...

    Looks like we're weaned!

    Well, I made it to 14.5 months. I haven't breastfed since early Friday morning, so it looks like it's all over. As much crap as breastfeeding brought up for me, I feel a little wistful

    Basically,...
  3. Re: Pumping - what to do on the weekend?

    On the weekends, I generally didn't pump at all and just nursed as per usual. I didn't have any problems with supply. I just used whatever I pumped on Friday as her milk for Monday. If you're not...

    Re: Ow! Not sure what this is

    Well, the pain has migrated over to my right side as well. It's not as severe as my left, which is just too painful to nurse from without crying at this point, but it's definitely there.

    I called...

    Re: Ow! Not sure what this is

    I really, really, really don't think so.

    The other thing is that this isn't so much an aching, sore feeling as it is a sharp, stabbing pain. I haven't seen anything that I thought was yeasty,...

    Re: Ow! Not sure what this is

    I really haven't noticed any changes. And it basically looks the same as the other side. When you say yeast infection, do you mean in the diaper area or elsewhere? She does have a slight diaper rash....

    Ow! Not sure what this is

    So over the past few days, I've been getting gradually worse pain in my left side when nursing. Here's the gist:
    --pain that's causing me to jump, wince and grit my teeth until I can switch her to...

    Re: Breast feeding and booze

    Hey,

    This isn't about the alcohol, but I wanted to let you know, that in your scenario, I am basically your own LO. I'm the product of my dad's second marriage. His first wife passed away when my...

    Re: Bringing milk to daycare

    I don't think there's any sanitation advantage to putting the milk in freezer bags. That would just be an extra step for you. I think taking it in bottles would be fine, and that would cut out any...

    Re: Nutrition while weaning

    Ah, I had forgotten about the go-gurts. Thanks for the tip.

    As for throwing in the towel, I did honestly try. She wouldn't take formula. She wouldn't even take breastmilk from a bottle or cup. I...

    Re: Nutrition while weaning

    Thanks mommal,

    I had thought about cheese and yogurt. We did yogurt today, although she wasn't so sure about it. Mostly I think because she likes to feed herself with her fingers and you can't...

    Nutrition while weaning

    Hello all,

    D just turned one and is on the mend from her second in a series of two surgeries 10 days ago. All went well, and once she gets past the recovery stage, I'd like to work on weaning. My...

    Re: Update--almost to a year!

    Thanks for your input Meg and everyone else. I appreciate it. I was reluctant to talk about it, but I do hope that others can learn and be aware of this potential issue.

    Sprocket--yes, I know...

    Re: Update--almost to a year!

    Momma,

    I did look into that book, but forgot to order it and couldn't get it through my library. At this point, I'm not sure that I could actually get the book and read it before I'm ready to...

    Update--almost to a year!

    Hello,

    I had a thread on here a little while ago talking about some problems i was having with nursing. I'd mentioned things like wanting to vomit when I nursed, feelings of disgust, etc. I've...
  17. Re: I'm about to give in to formula, please help!

    In my experience my daughter has gone through phases where she's not wanted to stay on the breast for very long at a given feeding. I think it especially happened when she was about tje.age of your...

    Re: Pressure to give up :(

    Hi beaubaby,

    I'm sorry that you're having to deal with this. You could present the facts that every major medical organization recommends breastfeeding for at least a year (AAP) and in many cases...

    Re: Pressure to give up :(

    I'm sorry. My family isn't anti-breastfeeding, but as I'm the first to really do it for any length of time, they're just not really people I can turn to for support.

    I know that it's hard to...
  20. Re: 1st time mom-to-be... electric or manual pump?

    Yes, totally agree with amysmom on the manual. My lactation consultant recommended holding off on investing in a pump until it was closer to the time I was going back to work. Many stores have...
  21. some insight into what's been going on

    I've had a few threads about some issues I've had with nursing, mostly that it makes me pretty unhappy for a number of reasons and I'm doing my best to hold on to the year mark. At first, I had...
  22. Re: 1st time mom-to-be... electric or manual pump?

    If you're going back to work a double electric pump is a must. Lots of people, including me , like the medela pump in style advanced but there are other models too. You definitely don't want to heat...
  23. Re: nervous about bottles and sitters

    thank you both.

    I think my main concern about the sitter isn't so much the sitter's credentials. We put an ad on care.com and I've had responses from lots of what look to be good people so far,...
  24. nervous about bottles and sitters

    D is 10 months old and was in daycare from 10 weeks until she was about 8 months, and during that time she got pumped BM through a bottle when she was there. I've been at home with her for about the...

    Re: Feeling ashamed about this...

    Mymp, I don't look at sex as dirty or perverted, that's the thing. I'm a very sex-positive person. My point in this thread is that I'm experiencing very irrational emotions in reaction to this.
