  1. Re: Dry Nursing during Pregnancy - Ouch!

    Good point, i hadn't thought of it. This is a stupid question, but who do you see to diagnose that? I have an OBGYN appointment tomorrow. Do I need to see a lactation consultant, or just a general...
  2. Re: Dry Nursing during Pregnancy - Ouch!

    I was just about to post the same exact question!! My son is also 20 months, and is dry nursing a few times a day and a few times at night. It is painful! My left nipple has cracked a little and it...
  3. Re: Nursing all night....help!

    Thanks ladies! I'm not sure moving him out of our bed would work, because unfortunately I think he's gotten accustomed to sleeping in our bed. I put him to bed in his crib at bedtime, but he usually...
  4. Nursing all night....help!

    My 20 month old son has been nursing constantly at night, and as a result I'm getting no sleep. I'm currently 17 weeks pregnant, and since the 2nd trimester the sensation of nursing at night makes my...
  5. Re: Estrogen Dominance after Extended Nursing?

    Yes, I agree. You should talk to your doctor about the breast tenderness/fullness. Maybe it's a side effect of the Hashimoto's or the medications. I just googled "hashimoto's and breast tenderness"...
  6. Night weaning while pregnant

    Hello, I know this topic has been covered many times, but I thought I'd ask for your thoughts because you ladies always have great advice. I'm thinking of night weaning my son, but don't know if it's...

    Re: Pregnant and nursing

    Thanks for all your help! I'm sure everything will work out and I should stop worrying. I will certainly encourage him to keep nursing and hopefully he'll stick with it. He's very attached to...

    When to stop pumping

    I posted a little while ago about when to stop pumping. A few people pointed out that if I stop pumping at least once a day at work it could affect my supply since my son still nurses frequently...
  11. Re: Reduced supply on one side

    Thanks so much, you always have great advice and make me feel better. Yes, he's eating more solids (although it varies day by day) and doesn't nurse nearly as much (between 3-5 times a day depending...
  12. Reduced supply on one side

    Lately when I pump, I get hardly any milk from my left breast. They've always been fairly even, or maybe one produced slightly more, but not like this. For example, the last time I pumped I got 3 oz...
  13. Re: How to transition from bottle to sippy cup

    Yes, he uses a sippy cup and a straw cup for water. He's been using it for probably about 5 months or so. I like your idea of sending the sippy cup and the bottle as a back-up. I'll ask his daycare...

    Re: Night waking and nursing

    Thank you for this! It does help a LOT. You're right, a change in perspective is probably the most effective and least stressful way to handle this. Anytime I try to change my son's sleeping habits,...

    Re: Night waking and nursing

    Most nights I do try this, but he's so persistent I give up, lol. He's one determined little dude. It's funny, because he gives me no trouble going in his crib at the beginning of the night or naps,...

    Re: Transitioning to cows milk

    Thanks, I will definitely take that into account. My son loves nursing, so I definitely don't want my supply to drop. I can keep pumping twice a day as much as I can, then slowly back down to once a...

    Thanks so much! That definitely helps to know.

    Re: When did you baby STTN?

    Thank you everyone!! This is very helpful. It's good to know that he WILL sleep at some point whether it's 18 months or 3 years old. And that I may have to night wean him at some point or maybe not....
