    Re: How do you answer these comments?

    Glad you got some good info here by these posters.

    Re: stuck in rut??

    Ahh, got it. Well, if you're able to nurse evenings/night plus 3 full days, I wouldn't really worry about "replacing" the EBM bottles if she can make it with eating and water. There is no reason to...

    Re: How to get baby to sleep w/o bf

    The title of your post indicates that you regret initiating weaning, which to me sounds like you still have a desire to nurse. It sounded like your reasoning for weaning was because you felt like...

    Hi Oscar's Mom,
