    Medela Bottles

    I'm preparing for baby #2, and trying to decide which bottles to use. The Avent bottles we used last time are out b/c of BPA concerns. I have a ton of Medela bottles that I used for pumping, but I...

    My sister is planning on exclusively pumping for her child, and she is due in June. She mentioned to me that she planned on pumping the week before her scheduled induction so that she would have...

    Re: 2 naps or 1?

    My LO put herself on 1 a day naps when she was 8 months old. I think when they are ready, they'll let you know.
  7. Re: Give me ideas to motivate my friend to carry on nursing her toddler

    I agree with the pp's. There's no reason she has to NIP. We never do, and we are out and about a lot. And I have no intentions of weaning any time soon.

    Re: toddler nursing positions?

    We do a semi-cradle hold, although her legs don't really fit on the chair anymore. She sort of stradles the leg opposite the side she's nursing on. She is pretty petite though. And she definitely has...

    Re: What do you call it?

    My LO signs milk (also with both hands!) and says chee-chees. When she's done she always says MMMMM! :love

    Re: Nursing Strike

    I was thinking the same thing. I'll definitely ask if she's gone that route yet.





    Thank you! That's one of my favorite pictures of her.:love

    Re: Nursing Strike

    Thanks for the tips, I'll pass them along. The only things I could come up with were bathing together and laying in bed topless. My dd has never had a *true* nursing strike where she wouldn't nurse...

    X-posted in bfing infants

    I know this is a q about an infant, but this is where I usually post and I know you mamas here have quite a bit of experience here so I thought I'd ask.

    Nursing Strike

    Anyone have any tips for getting a 10-month-old to end a nursing strike? A friend of mine has a ds who has not nursed in 8 days and though she's been pumping, her morale is getting pretty low. He...

    Re: Does she need cow's milk?

    Thanks for the awesome links ladies! I've never been a big fan of cow's milk, I guess it's just the mainstream mama in me that just won't go away. They need SOME kind if milk when they're babies,...

    Does she need cow's milk?

    I am working on slowly weaning my 18-month-old. We've been on 3x a day sessions for 6 months or so, and just in the last week are down to 2x a day. I wonder if she's getting enough milk from those...

    Re: How long have you been

    We are going strong at 16 months with no signs of slowing down. In fact, she had been down to 2-3 times/day, but now she's actually wanting to nurse more often. Our current goal is 18 months, but...

    Re: length of feedings?

    She is done after about 3-5 minutes on each side, tops. Although she often hangs around to comfort nurse for much longer.

    Re: Breast names

    My dd calls them chee-chee. I'm not sure where it came from, maybe because I'd always ask if she wanted to sit in our nursing chair.

    Re: 18 months old and 19 lb. Too small?

    As long as there wasn't a sudden stop in growth or major decline, I'd say he's probably just small. Was there some kind of change that concerned your doctor? He really doesn't sound extremely small...

    They cannot MAKE you work lunch duty. You are required, by law(at least in my state), to have a certain amt of time each day for a break- and that has nothing to do with pumping, it's true for...

    Re: Grabbing at shirt

    We use lots of baby sign language, including nurse. She will usually sign nurse, then say it, then start reaching down my shirt. She's just a very impatient little girl!

    Grabbing at shirt

    I always swore that as soon as my DD (now 15 months) started pulling on my shirt or lifting it up, I was done nursing.

    Well, now she is. Not very often (she only usually nurses 3 times a day-...

    Re: How much water?

    She probably drinks 6-8 oz a day, more if she acts really thirsty. She doesn't drink anything else though besides bm. And she absolutely loves water.
