  1. Re: 23 lb. 4 month old EBF.. Is this normal?

    I had a very difficult time with pants for my child when she was an infant. She was too big for the infant sizes, but almost all toddler sized pants were just longer and LEANER, which is not what we...

    Re: Thoughts on breastfeeding

    I think it is very hard to know for sure if your low libido is 100% due to breastfeeding. What I mean to say is, yes, the decreased estrogen levels of a nursing mother may be associated with a...

    Re: We've hit 3 years! :D

    Congratulations! What a wonderful new milestone to have reached!
  4. Re: Emotionally difficult time pump weaning

    My long term goals are essentially to let her lead the way. I have no end date or end game in mind, I have no nursing aversions or desire to limit her nursing in any way at this point in time. I...
  5. Re: Period Return and Low Milk Supply

    How many times over the work day are you pumping? Whether it's due to your period, a pump slump, or something else entirely, the best way to get over a hit in supply is to increase your demand. Can...
  6. Re: Emotionally difficult time pump weaning

    No issues nursing at home. The usual post-work nursing session, the usual very frequent evening nursing. A lot of extra overnight nursing, but she had a fever last night and I believe that to be...
  7. Re: Back to Work and Reverse Cycling?

    So she's still drinking 8 ounces over your work separation. That's not too dramatically low an intake. How long is your total separation, again? If it is 8 hours, that's actually right on target. ...
  8. Emotionally difficult time pump weaning

    I don't really know exactly where to take my concerns, as I don't really know anyone that's been quite in my position!

    My daughter is 23 months old today. I've kept a lunch pumping session at...
  9. Re: 3 month old bad latch sore nipples?

    I am sorry you are having such a painful time, mama!

    So, what I will say is that if you are experiencing pain, that is a sign that perhaps the latch is NOT fine, despite what the two LCs you saw...
  10. Re: Back to Work and Reverse Cycling?

    How much is baby drinking in the bottles you are leaving at daycare? Any chance the bottles are just a bit larger than baby needs, and that might be contributing to the infrequent demand?

  11. Re: 23 lb. 4 month old EBF.. Is this normal?

    I'm late to this party, but my daughter was also about this size at 4 months of age. She was always above the 99th percentile for height and weight until quite recently--at her 18 month well baby...

    You get home from work, and your 23 month old sits you down for your post-work nursing session. She takes the breast in your hand and says, "Niiiiiice. White. Pretty! Like it." :lol
  13. Re: Stress and breastfeeding 5 month old.

    Aw, this all sounds really, really hard, mama. :hug

    So, it sounds more like this is a problem of life circumstances and sleeping more than it is a breastfeeding problem. Baby is healthy and...
  14. Re: Dr Told Me to Stop Nursing my 12 Month Old at Night

    I've been back to work full time since my baby was 5 months old, and she was a 12-15+ times a night nurser from roughly 7-13 months of age. How I personally did it was bedsharing and nursing on...
  15. Re: 4 mo spits up lots and eats often and naps short...

    Is it possible you just have an infant who is a short napper? Mine was! I don't think her naps lengthened to anything more than 20 minutes at a stretch until she was 9 months old, and even at that...

    Re: Nursing to sleep acrobatics

    My daughter did this a ton from about 11-16 months, with some evenings taking up to an hour to finish getting all the wiggles out while nursing in our dark room. And then, it just sort of tapered...
  17. Re: Fussy baby, refusing to eat much when I am at work

    Lipase is not only an issue for frozen milk--it absolutely can be an issue with refrigerated milk, too. Depending on the mom and the severity of the issue, some moms find that their expressed milk...
  18. Re: Pumping output has majorly decreased- working mom

    Just clarifying here--you say that you are using a hospital grade pump, but then mention that you are using the PISA for work. The Pump In Style is actually not a hospital grade pump, so if that is...
  19. Re: Worried about supply; different with different babies


    How many hours a day are you separated, mama? 5-6 oz feedings are very large, particularly so if baby is getting many of these bottles a day.

    3-4 oz over a pumping session is very normal...

    Re: Low supply help

    Also, forgive me if I'm misinterpreting, but it also sounds like you might not be pumping enough if you are exclusively pumping. Are you making it to about 8-12 pumping sessions a day? I'm guessing...

    Re: Nursing all night....help!

    I have definitely experienced upticks in night nursing for a week or so on and off throughout this last year with my now-22 month old. Hopefully you are just going through a quick developmental leap...

    Re: Cutting out a pumping session


    Definitely don't try waiting until the end of the day to accumulate! You might get a bigger bottle for a couple of days, but then you're likely to wind up with a much smaller bottle over...
  23. Re: Am I leaving enough milk for when I'm at work?

    I have always interpreted that 1-1.5 oz/hour rule as per separated hour. So if I were away from my daughter for 9 total hours, even if I'd nursed right before leaving and immediately upon returning...
  24. Re: Nursing at night causing growth delay?

    Well, if you'd like anecdotal evidence that does not support this theory, I can give you some: my 21 month old was one of the heaviest night-nurslings I have ever heard of. She spent months 7-11 of...

    Re: Nursing and sleep. !

    I do not have the same problems you are having with sidelying nursing, so nightweaning has never been a good idea in my mind because night nursing is the bringer of sleep in my household!
