  1. Re: therapist recommends weaning at 6 months????

    I have never read anything that supports what your therapist has said. The opposite in fact. Everything I have ever read says that breastfeeding strengthens the right facial muscles which then means...

    Re: rice cereal

    Hi Courtney,

    There is a growth spurt at about 18-20 weeks, which is no longer widely recognised (probably due to formula use and early weaning habits over the last 20 years or so). But it is just...
  3. Poll: Re: How long after one year have you continued to pump?

    DD2 is allergic to dairy so I shall be pumping for some time yet. She is nearly 14 months now, I'm guessing I have another 6 months to go, time will tell. DD1 had no dairy issues and I stopped...

    DD2 has a nasty chest infection, she's been poorly for about 4 days, on antibiotics for 3 days now, and is almost completely off her (solid) food, and has been for about 4 days.

    Re: Do you agree with this?

    No, I think this is rubbish. I think there is no need for rice cereal, you just wait until your baby is 6 months old, can sit upright in a high chair and can pick things up easily. Then you give them...

    Re: Any Advice from Former "Pacifiers"?

    I completely agree, I was a human-pacifier for the first 12-18 months of DD1's life, I didn't start to "wean her off" until she was nearly two.

    I think it's great that you co-sleep, we didn't do...

    Re: Any Advice from Former "Pacifiers"?

    Hi,

    Does she actually stay latched on all night or just pop on and off as and when she wants?

    My DD1 used to want to stay latched all night, to stop this I began to wear a long t-shirt to bed....

    Re: MRI and breastfeeding

    I work in Radiology and do MRI scans all the time. There is no reason why you can't bf after an MRI scan, even most contrast media are safe as they are excreted pretty quick. The only scan that...

    Re: sudden nipple soreness

    LOL I think you could be pregnant!! I had sore nipples for at least a week before I had a +ve test!! Unless you get sore nipples before your period is due normally I'd say you may have got lucky.
