    Re: I pumped 18 oz in one sitting

    When I first went back to work I pumped that type of volume. This did not last though. I always had to be sure to protect pump frequency but always had enough. It was a shock to me when my supply...

    Re: Vitamin D?

    We use the drops that are Bit D only rather than the additives. They carry them at GNC and most natural food stores. I keep trying to get my CVS to carry them.

    Re: re-intro and a question

    I had os with my first and it was not easy. IHowever, she loved/loves nursing! So even if you have is again it doesn't mean this baby will necessarily struggle as much with it. And having been...

    Re: Out of options..

    We did Zantac too, but it didn't seem to totally fix the witching hour problem. I remember nursing my dd while standing on one leg, holding her upright sort of along my body sitting on my bent leg,...
  5. Re: 10.5 month old still feeding very frequently

    My lo sometimes nurses out of boredom. If we are home all day and I'm trying to gey chores done she'll ask to nurse what feels like constantly but if we go to the playground, take a walk talking...
  6. Re: Why do I feel teeth all of a sudden.

    Thanks for your responses. I'm starting to think it is at least in part hormonal. Since AF came back I'm a bit sensitive at that time of the month. I'm realizing now that this may also be happening...
  7. Re: Why do I feel teeth all of a sudden.

    Thank you meg. I'm going to try holding her up a bit higher. I think it might be gravity working against us. Based on that article and what you said, I will have to watch that when I hold her higher...
  8. Why do I feel teeth all of a sudden.

    My lo is 2 years old and nurses @ 8 times a day. Everything seems to be going great. All of a sudden this week I seem to be feeling her teeth. She isn't biting and doesn't have any new teeth. I have...
  9. Re: How often does your 2-3 year old nurse?

    I have not done a night weaning process but I do the "never offer/never refuse" except sometimes I delay. That girl nurses for thirst, hunger, comfort, boredom, play (pretending she's a baby seal...
  10. How often does your 2-3 year old nurse?

    Hi- My dd is 2.5 years old and on a typical day she breastfeeds 6-8 times during the day and 2-3 times overnight. So 8-11 times in 24 hours. I've seen a few posts where people seem to think the...

    My 2.5 yo, finished nursing, sat up, licked her lips and said " What good breast milk!" Closed up my shirt and walked off to play. <3
  12. Re: Mother of 6/veteran nurser has a new problem.

    I just wanted to add that my dd was always an efficient nurser and got enough milk in 5 minute sessions. I had os/oald. If weight gain and diapers are good I wouldn't worry about length of sessions. ...
  13. Re: I know my storage bags aren't leaking!! I'm losing my mi

    It never looked clear to me on my lansinoh bags how much was in there. The bag puckers and bends. I would measure with bottles when fresh pumped then use that measurement to label the bag.
  14. Re: Pediatrician pushing formula to clear up jaundice

    I hated those heel sticks, but my lo made it through with lots of nursing, 1 day under lights and sitting by a window in New England in January. I had to wake her up a lot and ended up seeing a...

    Re: You know you're nursing a toddler when...

    My lo is 2 y.o. and really in to rhyming. She has recently taken to calling my left breast "switch sides" and to go with that she is now calling my right breast "*****sides" :D
  16. Re: How do I get my cosleeping 2 yo to sleep without nursing

    I guess I shouldn't rush it. I would just like it if she was a bit more versatile in the ways she can be comforted.

  17. Re: How do I get my cosleeping 2 yo to sleep without nursing

    So cute! You are right each child is different. I'm pretty sure she can make the connection. We have tried having my husband put her to sleep, but she just peacefully stays awake reading. She knows...

  19. How do I get my cosleeping 2 yo to sleep without nursing

    I'm looking for advice on getting my 2 year old to be able to fall asleep without nursing to sleep. I am not interested in night weaning. We co-sleep and she nurses a couple of times a night while I...
  20. Re: Onto the "beyond" phase of "2 years and beyond"

    Thank you for that post. I feel much the same way and am so happy to hear it put so eloquently. My almost 2 year old nurses @ 10 times per day :) Love it!

    Re: Feeling drained/wiped out nursing

    I feel that way sometimes too. I will be interested in what others say.
    Could it be iron or vitamin D? I take my prenatals, but sometimes wonder. I'm in New England so I know I'm not getting sun as...

    Questions First:
    Can I just not produce for the pump now?
