    Re: Twiddling

    After reading posts with moms of older nurslings voicing frustration about the whole twiddling thing, I made it a point to cover up on the unoccupied side. That has helped tremendously because DS is...
  2. Re: 5 month old STILL nursing all night

    My LO, who is 9 months, will do something like this at night: nurse, then down for bed. I stay next to him until he's out and then leave. He'll then wake up every 45 minutes (every sleep cycle) until...

    Re: getting her to eat her veggies

    I'm encouraged when reading the previous posts. I was given a lot of grief from family recently because my LO really likes sweet stuff like pears, apples, bananas and sweet potato. I thought we were...

    Re: Teeth!

    Totally depends on the kid! My LO got his bottom two teeth at about 6-6.5 months (they appeared within days of each other). There are babies in our mom group who are almost 9 months and haven't cut...

    Re: best pacifier for bf baby

    We use the MAM brand, but the latex ones. They are much softer than the silicone ones. LO definitely prefers the latex over silicone. LO never used it in the early months (made a face like you were...
  6. Re: sleeping like she's in a mosh pit

    I agree that it could be teething. For fussiness during the day, I have found that giving baby washcloths that have been tied in knots, dampened and frozen are really soothing chew on. Just make sure...

    Re: why, oh why am i sore?

    Thanks so much for the replies. That last link was particularly helpful . . . I don't think it's a bleb or blister, but I'm going to try to take it easy and offer to nurse as much as LO will take....

    Re: why, oh why am i sore?

    I did POAS and it was negative. I'll retry in a few days just to be sure. What else could it be??? No visible signs of teeth, yet, but there is no shortage of drool and toy/finger chewing at our...

    why, oh why am i sore?

    LO is now 6 months old and we have been exclusively BF since day one. I struggled to get the hang of things in the beginning. I dealt with clogged ducts on my left side at about week 2 and lingering...

    Re: teething

    I haven't tried it yet, but someone shared this: tie some knots in a washcloth, wet it and put the washcloth in the freezer. The baby can then chew on the washcloth and knots for comfort and some...
  11. Re: How long until breastfeeding doesnt hurt as bad?

    My nipples were tender while nursing up until about the 5 week mark as well. I wish someone had told me how much it would hurt! I kept reading that BF shouldn't hurt if you're doing it "right" and...

    Re: upset in sd

    I just wanted to add that it takes practice! Practice for you--to learn your baby's nursing style and gain confidence in yourself and your body AND practice for baby--to learn how to latch, drink and...

    Re: running on empty please help

    So happy to read that you were able to get some sleep! My LO has done the same for me on a few nights -- slept for good chunks of time just when I thought I would lose it. Babies are amazing little...

    Re: Sleeping thru the night

    Your body will adjust. It just takes some time and patience on your part. I was wondering the same thing when my LO starting sleeping for longer stretches (then he started sleeping for shorter...

    Hi everyone,
    First post from first time mom here. I have a question about nursing at night, but first some facts about me and my almost 10 week old: we exclusively BF. Birthweight was 8 lb 7 oz, 11...
