    Re: Causes of nipple pain

    Has the latch changed at all? Around this age my lo was a gymnast at the breast, tugging and pulling me every which way. Or teething? This can cause a bit of irritation, too.
  2. Re: New here- needs advice weaning two year old

    Ugh. That happened to me. We were working on night-weaning when the flu struck. Every time dd "regresses" though, and nurses practicaly like a newborn, it has been temporary. If you were making...

    Re: How to get toddler to sleep

    I have been there, and am still fighting this battle. I know how hard it is. My 27 mo has been fighting sleep since she was born, despite my best efforts. I do think it was helpful for me to...

    Re: Weaning help

    I agree you don't sound really ready to wean. I just wanted to add,though,that itsn't necessary for toddlers to drink milk. There are other dietary sources of calcium that can meet his needs, with...

    Re: Is this weaning?

    It could be teething, she may have a bug (like my daughter), she may just be temporarily more interested in toys or whatever new skills she's working on, or she may be weaning. There is so much...

    Re: How to wean to cow's milk?

    And, of course, you need to be sure you're still making time for the snuggles and bonding that occur with nursing.

    My DD, almost 2, also gets very inconsolable if she can't have her "nuk" right...

    Re: Help with night weaning

    What about trying to transition to him nursing as part of bedtime, but not fully to sleep? That's what I started doing with my DD around this age. While it was initially harder, she is now able to...

    Re: having trouble with a bottle

    My daughter wouldn't take a bottle. Luckily I don't work full-time. DH ended up having to spoon-feed her until she was old enough to handle a sippy cup.

    This is obviously not practical in your...

    Re: leaking

    I still leak (at 21 months) if I don't wear a bra. I remember the days of having to change shirts 5 times. As though I had all kinds of time to be doing laundry. I found my cheap cloth pads to be...

    Many, many moms have dealt with flat, inverted, short, wide, etc. nipples and gone on to breastfeeding success! As the Womanly Art of Breastfeeding states, it's just a matter of figuring out how to...

    Re: Weaning and night waking?

    Wow! I wish my DD went to sleep that easily! I agree about possible separation anxiety. As an alternative, could there be any new molars or premolars in the works? The horrible teething between...

    Re: decrease in poop so late?

    :lol This reminded me of DD's excitement and pride a couple weeks ago when she pooped on the kitchen floor when my back was turned. Clapping, pointing... yeah, close, but no cigar. :gg (We're...
  13. Re: 8.75m old and balancing nursing and solids, very frustra

    :ita My 20 month old still hardly eats breakfast (or anything else, for that matter). I can only get her to eat eggs, sometimes oatmeal, and only if she really feels like it. I really worried about...

    Re: just venting...

    This happens to me occasionally. I'm always relieved when it's just food. (Not cat food, crayon, chunks of pencil eraser, etc.)

    Good for you for nursing in public with your toddler, especially...

    Re: Annoying Habits!!!

    DD started doing doing these things, too, around your LO's age. She still does when she's fighting sleep (naptime, bedtime). It helps to have a toy or read a book while nursing. My DD was never...
  16. Re: Damaged nipple, continuing to feed, advice?

    Regarding pumping: I tried this when baby was having a hard time latching and my nipple was really damaged. My midwife advised pumping and bottle feeding for a couple days to let my nipple heal. ...
  17. Re: Damaged nipple, continuing to feed, advice?

    One of my nipples got so damaged in the first few months, it has completely (probably permanently) reshaped itself. But we made it through just fine nursing on damaged, very painful nipples. I...
  18. Re: Baby using me as teether -- ouch!

    I agree, just be very consistent. I would try also to be gentle about it so you don't scare her. The association should be bite=no more milk, not nurse=mommy unhappy.

    I did have the experience...

    Re: only feeds from one side

    Are you trying to wean him from the breast? 5 month olds will not wean on their own, though they will increase in efficiency, making it seem like they aren't getting as much milk from the breast. ...

    Re: EBF 15 month old

    Thanks for the reassurance. DD ate a couple bites yesterday, and hopefully the Christmas feasting will entice her from her fast. She still seems energetic and healthy, so I guess she's fine.

  24. Re: Engorgement with chills now no milk?
