    Re: Rotavirus- will only bf

    We had something awful like that before xmas last year. I was also told that pedialyte gets them hydrated a little faster than breastmilk, but mine wanted nothing to do with the pedialyte, so I just...

    Re: Still waking at night!!!

    One of my twins has always had trouble sleeping, and it got really really bad over the winter. She was sleeping with us and wanted to wake up and nurse every hour on the hour. I work full time so...

    Re: how long did you nurse

    My twins are 13 months and we're still nursing on demand. I'm leaving it up to them, don't really have any plans. They're the babies, they know what they're doing.

    Re: Fussy eater/frequent nurser

    Mine are younger but they're doing this b/c they're teething. Yesterday I nursed 5x in the am and 4x in the pm, and I went to work for 9hr between! It all made sense when I felt a couple molars...

    Re: Is this normal

    Have you asked your doc about it? Some babies don't start getting teeth till 1 yr, and don't walk on their own till well past 1 yr. If he was born premature or SGA, which I'm guessing he may have...

    Re: DH's ultimatum

    Wow, that's awful, here you are doing some of the most selfless things a mother can do, letting her decide when she's ready to wean and sleep on her own, and he thinks you're being selfish?! I hope...

    Re: Comfort Nursing??

    One my twins is like this, she sleeps with us at least half the night, and she's getting her first sets of molars now so she wants to nurse ALL the time. Her sister sleeps better at night but is...

    Poll: Re: It makes me mad!

    I think extended does imply that somehow breastfeeding beyond 1 isn't normal, so I voted yes. Many people associate "normal" with "right" and assume that because we're doing something outside the...

    Re: Lumpy, hard breast

    Pumping won't get a clog out, but if you pump a little right before LOs nurse it may encourage them to drink down to it. Keep ice on it as much as possible between nursing to decrease the...

    Re: in pain need help

    I get that every time they have a new tooth coming in, they both leave indents on my nipple. After a few weeks I get used to the new tooth and it doesn't hurt anymore. I can usually tell if they're...
  11. Re: Nursing a toddler in public/around others...

    I haven't changed my NIP practices because they're older, but I don't NIP as often b/c they get so excited when we're out and about they don't usually ask. If I know they need to nurse and don't...

    Re: driven near insanity via twiddling

    Good lord, I can't believe some of these LOs have pulled skin off! Mine were both biters from an early age so I have a very low threshold for any kind of bad nursing etiquette. I broke them of the...

    Re: plugged duct for over a week

    I've never found a pump to be very effective at getting a clog out, maybe it you tried to remove some milk right before nursing with hand expression or pumping that would help your LO pull it out. ...

    Re: Reverse Cycling?

    I work too, and have stopped pumping, so we aren't going to nightwean anytime soon. One of mine still sleeps well at night, the other is wanting to nurse ever 2hrs like your LO. It's VERY stressful...

    Re: Can I change to exclusive breastfeeding

    Mine nurse more now than they did a few months ago. They insist on having their own spoons and often their own bowls, it's a huge mess, but I'm glad we're still nursing while they sort this out. I...

    Re: Confused about toddler feeding at night

    LOL, in case you hadn't noticed, breastfeeding isn't purely about calories. Sure a LO this age doesn't NEED to nurse at night for nutrition, but WANT to for comfort. There's nothing wrong with...
  18. Re: WOH and transitioning to "nursing after age one"

    Trust your instincts, you know what you're doing! We just gave water as I was weaning from the pump, and they are offered water at every meal and snack now. I didn't see the point to getting them...

    Night nursing

    How much does your LO nurse at night? I counted last night and Gwen nursed like 5x. Jules is a better sleeper so she doesn't much. Gwen refused to eat her dinner last night. I know toddlers get...

    Re: Upping fluid intake.

    There's nothing wrong with it IMO, you're doing a good job keeping an eye on his diapers and finding solutions to a problem before it starts, he does need to drink a certain amount of fluids a day. ...
  21. Re: WOH and transitioning to "nursing after age one"

    I think he's full of it. Breastmilk will continue to benefit your child past 1 yr in the same ways it benefits now, there's no need to reduce any kind of breastmilk intake if she's eating solids...

    Re: nursing laying down and ear infections

    We always nurse laying down at night, and reclined during the day. One of my LOs has had 2 ear infections, the other 1, no problems with chronic. I don't think it's related to bf, maybe your LOs...

    Re: Membranes

    Most women don't experience a dramatic supply dip when their cycle resumes. But I did, and if you do, take calcium. The longer you've had your period back the less effect it has on your milk.
