    lush, I'm sorry you're feeling like T is so much more demanding lately. :hug

    Re: She bit me, now what?

    Yikes, sorry to hear your toddler bit you. An additional idea is to try different positions. Her chin area does more of the sucking, so it's possible that putting her chin away from the wound may...

    My toddlers would nurse like newborns again and that was my first sign...

  20. Re: How will I survive Child-Led Weaning?

    lovebeingmommy, I wonder if you have tried to achieve a letdown before your son latches on? Breast massage and expressing off some milk (either by hand or with a pump) before latching him on might...
