    Wow, sounds tough. I didn't wean till my LO was older, and on food, but I dropped a session per month. So when I started to wean, she was doing about 4 nursing sessions per day, and I cut it down...

    Re: If I have to wean...how? (long)

    If you find you HAVE to do it, and that you must, go as slow as you can. My little one was drinking 3 bottles of EBM a day in addition to nursing, so that helped because she wasn't getting ALL her...

    Thanks very much for the articles and the answer, the NY times one won't let me read it though!

    My little one is 10.5 months. She got a rather slow start to solids but is good with them now. In fact she is all about the pincer grasp, and loving the mommy-daddy foods much more than she likes...

    Re: How's my output?

    Alexa's mom, you may not end up needing to supplement. I have been working full time for the last 7 months and still feeding breastmilk exclusively - I give my baby a bottle in the morning and I am...

  22. Re: Just started pumping; baby is 6 mo old....

    Yes, I think you can do it and it is worth it. Once you get used to the pump and more "practiced" you can probably make quite a difference even if you just pump once a day! It will help your supply...
