    Re: 10 month old, weaning already?!

    I am home 6 days/ week. I wear "booby shirts" (LOL), so him not being interested in nursing during the day is surprising and sad to me. The day I work, he has pumped milk in a straw cup. Sometimes...
  6. Re: Milk supply almost non-existent. NEED HELP!!!!!

    I admire your dedication! I relactated after losing milk supply with my oldest son. I remember feeling ashamed about how little I would pump, at first drops, later 1/4 ounce. I should not have...

    Re: 10 month old, weaning already?!

    Adding that he is not in a distracted while nursing phase. We went through that phase already, I forget when it was exactly, perhaps 7 months old.

    This baby is doing everything other than...

    My 10 month old son is on a path to weaning, and we're over the hill - meaning m supply has dropped off so I need to decide to let this continue or fight it. Practically I'm leaning towards letting...

    Re: Fatigue? Is this normal?

    I'm trying some advice from Kellymom.com. Nursing every 2 hours during the day, every hour in the evening. Hoping that more daytime nursing will begin to limit the night nursing.

    Re: Fatigue? Is this normal?

    I'm not going to my doctor. I heard enough "6 months old is crucial age for babies to learn to self-soothe" BS from him.

    oh! but now I remember there is a nurse practitioner who mentioned she...

    Re: Fatigue? Is this normal?

    I made some notes of sleep. Last night, he only nursed once during the day near 5 p.m. We slept 5 - 8 p.m. uninterrupted (OMG, bliss!!) Up for 3 hours, I was too tired to stay up, and somehow...

    Fatigue? Is this normal?

    My baby is 7 months old. He nurses on demand and eats A LOT of solids - to the point of occasionally replacing nursing. He typically sleep 5 hours at night, and then 5 hours in the morning. He has...

    Re: I'm so confused...

    Everything Maddieb said! Do whatever is comfortable for you and baby. My oldest nursed 40 minutes out of every hour at that age. My second nursed 5 minutes every 2 hours at that age. Go figure. ...

    Re: Boob or Bottle?

    Benefit of feeding from breast only: MORE SLEEP! Mothers who bed-share and breastfeed get the most sleep and the highest quality sleep (in spite of more night wakings). Do you research on bed...

    Re: 4 weeks old, new latch problem

    I pump in the morning for comfort If I feel a "lump" of milk baby didn't get out overnight. That's happened twice in the last 2 weeks. I haven't been feeling engorged though.

    I just started work...

    Re: When is it okay to quit?

    Have you tried expressing milk by hand? It's so much more gentle than a pump! It was faster for me too, because I wasn't having pain affecting let-down.

    I second the suggestion for your baby to...
