  1. Re: 15 month old self-weaning daytime feeds?

    Yes, that does make sense regarding the replacement milk/foods. I've started giving her a multi-vitamin which might just be a placebo but it can't hurt.

    Thanks for your advice about the hormonal...
  2. Re: 15 month old self-weaning daytime feeds?

    Hi again,

    Sorry I did not reply. Things have been really tough around here. I am on a hormonal roller coaster.

    bfwmomof3 - I just cannot pump anymore. My daughter sleeps very little, I am a...
  3. Re: 15 month old self-weaning daytime feeds?

    No, she hasn't been sick. And she just had her 15 month check-up and the doctor said she was in great shape.

    I inspected her mouth and saw a tiny (very tiny) chip on the bottom of her front...
  4. Re: 15 month old self-weaning daytime feeds?

    Yes, she has been off of all dairy (other than breastmilk) for 4 months due to GI upset. So she doesn't get a lot of calcium/vit D from other sources.

    Something is going on. She's not really...
  5. Re: 15 month old self-weaning daytime feeds?

    I would say she latches 3-4 times in 24 hours but I would't always call it nursing. I no longer feel a strong let down (which I know is normal) but sometimes before sleep it really doesn't seem like...
  6. 15 month old self-weaning daytime feeds?

    Hi ladies,

    As you can see from previous threads, I've had a hard time nursing my daughter but have persevered and was happily nursing her 4-5 times a day until about a week ago. One day she when...
  7. Re: Sudden intolerance to lactose in breastmilk?

    So the plot thickens… My daughter is still drinking breastmilk and had a whole day on Thursday with NO poops, then a normal poop this morning followed by two mostly solid poops, giving way to watery...
  8. Re: Sudden intolerance to lactose in breastmilk?

    Thank you so much, emmamama - that means the world to me. I know only other mothers understand how heartbreaking it is to finally get something IN your child only to see those hard-won calories exit...
  9. Re: Sudden intolerance to lactose in breastmilk?

    And yes, I have a scale at home too so that weight drop is accurate.
  10. Re: Sudden intolerance to lactose in breastmilk?

    I will ask for the breath test. That's a good idea.

    I can't believe she's embarking on yet another nursing strike in the midst of all this. She totally refused me most of the day and I only...
  11. Re: Sudden intolerance to lactose in breastmilk?

    Diarrhea has lasted 4 weeks. She will have 2 bouts on a good day, 5 bouts on a bad day (seems in proportion to the amount of food she's consumed). It's always very copious and stinky and has loads of...
  12. Sudden intolerance to lactose in breastmilk?

    Hi ladies -

    I am really struggling here and I thought I'd come to you (again) for your wisdom.

    I've been on the forum before mostly for issues having to do with my indifferent nursling. Since...

    Re: Shorter and shorter nursings

    Thank you so much for your thoughtful replies, everyone.

    I took a day off away from my computer to celebrate my daughter turning ONE!

    I can't believe we made it. I really can't. But I know I...

    Re: Shorter and shorter nursings

    You guys are so helpful, thank you so much. Explaining things this way helps me a lot.

    And yes, I do think she's been teething. That must be part of it too. There is an incisor that just broke...

    Re: Shorter and shorter nursings

    I thought that offering any liquid - especially other milk - does indeed hasten weaning. No?

    Their thirst is quenched and, if they've had milk, they've gotten that sweet protein hit... so if they...

    Re: Shorter and shorter nursings

    My pediatrician is not very BF-friendly, especially after 1 year. They want me to push solids, solids, solids.

    Lunch and dinner today went uneaten. On the floor immediately. For breakfast she had...

    Re: Shorter and shorter nursings

    Hi bfwmomof3,

    Thanks for replying.

    It seems she has gained about 1 lb. over the last month, give or take a few ounces based on time of day for weigh-in.
    She actually gained more than that,...

    Shorter and shorter nursings

    Hi mamas -

    I posted on here a couple months ago about my daughter's disinterest in nursing and my concern that she was weaning. It's been two months and we're still hobbling along. And I mean...

    Re: Where did my milk go?

    Thanks ladies, it really does help to know I'm not the only one.

    I get stuck in a loop of worry when it's just me and LO and I feel so much better (though not for your sakes!) knowing others are...

    Re: Where did my milk go?

    Ahhh, katieperry, we have very similar babies!

    Even as a newborn she only nursed 6-8 times a day. I feel like I've been worried about her nursing "enough" for her whole life.

    I do think I had...

    Re: Where did my milk go?

    And now she's just biting me every time I try to nurse her.

    This is so devastating. I don't know what else to do. :cry

    Re: Where did my milk go?

    There's a MAJOR slowdown going on.

    Not only has she reduced overall time on the breast, in the past few days I can barely get her to take the right breast at all (it's always been the slower,...

    Re: Where did my milk go?

    It's me again.

    I am trying really hard not to worry but the past two nights she's had a large amount of solids for dinner and has refused her bedtime nursing.

    That means she's down to 4...

    Re: Where did my milk go?

    Hi auderey -

    She nurses approx. every 3-4 hours during the day and 1 time overnight. She's never nursed more than 6-7 times a day even as a newborn and now it's more like 5.

    It's not...
