  1. Breastfeeding and Sleep Training woes

    I have recently started sleep training my 13 and a half month old lg with great success as far as her night time sleep is concerned. She generally sleeps right through now from 7pm - around 6am....

    Re: Favourite breast...

    Yes I have, and generally that's the worst time as she gets very moody when tired! Lol

    Up until recently I still managed to feed her on the left occasionally, but now she just flatly refuses. It's...

    Favourite breast...

    My 10 and a half month old baby girl has been favouring my right breast for months now, which means the milk production on he left is considerably less than on the right. She usually throws herself...

    Re: Strange nursing behavior...

    Not yet, but sounds like that might work! Thank you. :ita
  5. Re: Baby getting a little violent when feeding

    I can definitely sympathize! My little one likes to grap my nose, lips, hair or necklace, and pulls and scratches me when nursing. Luckily no kicking or slapping... :yikes It's safe to say that the...

    Re: Strange nursing behavior...

    Thanks for the feedback! I'm definitely going to try a quiet darkened room to see if that helps, and try to make some time to pump on the left only. It's rather frustrating having less milk (and a...

    Strange nursing behavior...

    My 8 (nearly 9) month old baby girl has recently started with rather strange behavior when nursing. She'll latch, drink happily for a short while, then let go and bolt upright for a look around and a...
  8. Re: 8 month old: Number of milk feeds per day.

    Thank you for all the advice! Baby's granny is offering more bottle feeds (expressed milk) again, and most of the time she will drink some if not all thereof. I do find though that if I offer her the...

    Re: Do I cut down on nursing??

    Amen to all of the above. This was my concern as well as I was given the same advice - more solids NB because milk no longer sufficient! Wish doctors would stop giving such bad advice... :huh
  10. Re: 8 month old: Number of milk feeds per day.

    I agree. Seems the best way to go is to just go with what feels right and what makes baby happy. And when in doubt ask other breastfeeding mommies! :thumbsup Sadly these days there aren't very many...
  11. Re: 8 month old: Number of milk feeds per day.

    Just shows you how things differ from one place to the next. Some books here advise the reduction of milk feeds after 7 months to avoid an over full baby refusing solid foods... The concern being...
  12. Re: 8 month old: Number of milk feeds per day.

    Well I want to continue breastfeeding past a year, preferably until 2 years. Baby has never taken to the bottle, so it's been quite a struggle getting all her milk feeds in after I started work again...
  13. 8 month old: Number of milk feeds per day.

    I read in my Baby Sense book that from 7 months baby should be nursing 4 times a day, and the solids should be increased accordingly.

    What would be the general guideline as to number of milk...
  14. Great advice given on baby that won't take bottle.

    A huge thank you to the fantastic advice given to me a while ago regarding my little one who didn't want to know anything about taking a bottle. She is now nearly 6 months and is happily (though...

    Re: Some questions?

    :clap

    I will also be sure to do that in future with my pediatrician and his crap advice!
  16. Re: Drop in milk supply when expressing

    @esthervegan: Thanks for that! :) Yes, I think as long as one tries to do the best you can and shower your baby with love every step of the way all will be well. :love
  17. Re: Drop in milk supply when expressing

    Lol mommal, I completely understand! As I said I wouldn't do it with a 2nd child. Feel bad now that I started baby so early because of misplaced advice... Just hoping there's been no damage done. So...
  18. Re: Drop in milk supply when expressing

    Little one is 5 and a half months old, not 4 and a half. Typo...
    Well be it as it may baby has been on solids now for a while, and I can't undo that. I will say that with baby number 2 (in future)...
  19. Re: Drop in milk supply when expressing

    Our pediatrician said she should start on solids at 4 months. I'm a first time mother and it was a tough decision to make, but I did feel that it would be best to follow the specialist's advice?...
  20. Drop in milk supply when expressing

    I have recently seen a drop in my milk supply on occasion when expressing. My pump seems to be working fine, but the past couple of days I've only managed to express around 50ml at a time, which is...
  21. Re: Suddenly unable to express milk

    I did manage to hand express a bit, but only to see that there was milk, then put the pump back on. It felt like it was sucking the same as usual... Will have to give it another try tonight to see if...
  22. Suddenly unable to express milk

    I have been successfully breastfeeding my 5 month old little girl since birth, and for the past month (back at work) expressing milk twice a day, and going to her for a midday feed. All has been well...
  23. Re: Won't take the bottle, only breast!

    Thank you! I will buy one this weekend and give it a try. I'm thrilled that she loves breastfeeding so much, but sadly I can't stay at home with her forever. Will continue to express for her though,...
  24. Won't take the bottle, only breast!

    Hi there, I posted a question regarding my little girl's reluctance to take the bottle a while ago. We still have the same problem. She will sometimes take the bottle if I
    offer it to her, after...
