    Re: Roll Call...

    Re: Do babies nurse even if not hungry?

    Remember that breastfeeding is supply and demand, so even when your baby isn't hungry, they are still helping to produce more milk.

    Re: Twiddling While Nursing

  12. Re: Do you tell your kid's ped about nursing?

  14. Re: nursing position changes for growing toddler?

    As soon as Konur and Mali could sit up they were nursing like that with one leg on either side of my leg. Even at 5, Konur still nurses that way.
