    1 yr old - SLOW growth - advice??

    Ashelyn had her 1 year appt today and the new Pedi (we just moved from CT to MD) is concerned about her lack of growth over the past 6 months. Frankly, I am too.

  2. Self weaning? Need some advice, please!

    Re: Night Time Nursing

    That's tough! I also have an 8 month old and she has been sleeping in a travel crib in our room (right next to my side of the bed) since she was born. I had tried to move her into her room at night...
  6. Re: Is everyone lying about sleeping throught the night??

    My daughter is 8 months old and still wakes several times a night to nurse. I am sure this is not because she's starving, but because she wants the comfort of mommy and she's just in a habit now. ...
  7. Re: Home Remedies/Suggestions for my case?

    I do hope you feel better soon.

    Do you think it may be a plugged duct? I had that problem a few weeks back where my entire right breast hurt (badly) for about 5 days...then it cleared up after...
  8. Does it take a while to start flowing?

    I really don't pump too often because even though I am on domperidone, I still don't produce much milk when I pump. We are going away overnight next weekend and leaving the kids with my inlaws, so I...

    Ashelyn had tried applesauce about a month ago and she didn't show any sign of wanting more than that initial taste. So I tried it again yesterday evening and she took about a teaspoon or so then...

    Summertime & Nursing

    I am wondering if Ashelyn will nurse more in the summer time with the weather getting much warmer (it's over 90 degrees today). My (nearly) 2 year old is drinking a lot more, especially today. ...

    Re: So does the nursing necklace work?

    Mine doesn't capture Ashelyn's attention and she just keeps pushing against me while pulling her head back. It happens at every feeding....even the ones where she's half asleep. ;)

    Re: No poop for 4 days

  15. Re: Does the mini pill affect milk supply?

    I hate to say that I think mine was affected a little (but it could have been compounded by losing weight fairly quickly and being sick for a little while).

    My Lactation Consultant advised me that...

    Re: Refusing solid foods!!

    What did you do to resolve this?

    ETA: Ashelyn does put toys in her mouth all the time, so maybe she doesn't have an aversion. Oh well, we'll keep trying. We tried banana again this AM but it was...

    Re: Refusing solid foods!!

    My DD won't eat either (she's 6.5 months). I have tried a few things (cereal, apple sauce, carrots - in the jar) but she still thrusts her tongue out. She gags on mashed banana. So, I try for a...
