  1. Re: Talking to 3.5 year old about weaning

    Too cute!

    So... why can't you tell her the boobs are tired and it's time to stop nursing and go to sleep at naptime?

    I know what you mean about feeling like she will never be ready to stop. My...
  2. Re: Advice for when pump output is low

    That's good news! Maybe it was a pump thing that time, then.

    Re: Suddenly losing my supply

    It's common for moms to have a relative oversupply early on - nature's way of making sure baby has enough. Then, supply regulates over time to more closely match baby's demand. Mom may notice less...
  5. Re: Talking to 3.5 year old about weaning

    What is a reasonable time frame, for you? Because of course she WILL wean, eventually...

    Mine is a couple months past 3. I don't really feel like I need to "prepare" her for weaning, because, at...

    Re: Weaning before i want to :(

    First, why tell the doctor you are still breastfeeding? It is not unhealthy in any way to be breastfeeding when pregnant, therefore I don't think it's information your doctor needs to know.

  7. Re: Advice for when pump output is low

    Sometimes even when it seems like there's suction, the pump is actually not working properly - so maybe it was the tubing not being pushed in all the way, know what I mean?
  8. Re: Advice for when pump output is low

    Getting 3-4 oz in a pumping session is perfectly normal - that is definitely at the upper end of what baby would be getting at the breast in a typical nursing session. Also normal to get less as the...
  9. Re: Pump weaning and breastfeeding at home

    I had some issues with engorgement early on after pump weaning, but I've had a lot of issues with oversupply in general. Once after a week's vacation and lots of nursing my LO (she was about 15...

    Re: Breast shield size

    Does the nipple move back and forth easily in the flange when you are pumping? That is the key, not whether there is space around the nipple but whether it is moving back and forth easily, without...
  11. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    Wonderful!!!
  12. Re: Pump weaning and breastfeeding at home

    Yes, absolutely. I've been pump weaned for about two years now (I pump weaned at around a year) and still nursing weekends, mornings and evenings - more on weekends, and definitely during the day....
  13. Re: Pregnant and desperate to wean 20 mo old

    Glad to hear that you had a smooth weaning process!
  14. Re: uncooperative work environment for pumping

    Do you want to give some more details - who you've talked to, what you've tried, ways in which your work environment is not being supportive? We may be able to give some helpful...

    Re: weaning after 3 years

    I don't think there is a right or wrong answer... If you feel like the back-and-forth is going to be too emotionally difficult for you, then it's fine to change the subject - sounds like he was just...
  16. Re: Almost 3 years nursing and not liking it

    One other thing I've been thinking about debbers - I find it much easier to tolerate the long nursing sessions when I have distraction. When my kids were newborns I read a ton while they were...

    Re: going back to work and logistics

    Yeah, sometimes it can be hard for people to understand that things change, and what they did for their babies may not have been the best idea.

    Re: going back to work and logistics

    My mother took me to her home country when I was 4 months old. She was breastfeeding me but they "identified a cow" to provide me with supplemental milk, too. Not sure whether they boiled it or just...
  20. Re: 4 month old waking up every 1-2 hours in the night.

    Yes, normal. Some people call it the four-month fussies. Some babies are starting to feel teeth at that age, others are more aware of their surroundings when they awake and want to nurse for...

    Re: going back to work and logistics

    I agree, you MUST keep the formula separate from the breastmilk. Once baby has started a formula-containing bottle, if she doesn't finish it the rest has to go down the drain, including your precious...
  22. Re: Mama has a tummy bug and nursing

    Lipase isn't bad for baby, but some babies will drink the milk and others won't. So if your friend's baby will drink the milk, you haven't hurt that baby in any way!
  23. Re: Mama has a tummy bug and nursing

    Do you scald your milk before freezing? That can help with the lipase issue. Glad to hear that supply is getting better and you are going to your LLL meeting.
  24. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    That is SOOO cute!!

    Wonderful news on DS's stats, sounds like he is doing great!
    That's interesting about the dom and GI motility.
  25. Re: Almost 3 years nursing and not liking it

    I hear you! I actually can't think of anyone I know IRL who has nursed a three-year-old. And I definitely feel like I can't complain about it on the occasions nursing IS driving me crazy because the...
