  1. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    Can I just say that you ladies are awesome? Really. I was feeling extremely unsure of my decision, mired in fear, and quite alone, and you have all given me so much love and reassurance. I love...
  2. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    In my faith, natural family planning, broadly speaking, is the only form of birth control permitted.
  3. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    Mommal, you are a total doll. I think you will turn out to be right and, in the unlikely event that you aren't, I have no plan to hold you to your crow-eating promise (though, if you have a penchant...
  4. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    Thank you so much for everything you shared, sonogirl. It helps so much to get feedback and commiseration like yours. This decision has been so isolating IRL that it is a balm to my weary heart to be...
  5. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    You have me intrigued! Would you mind sharing your dose (am I right to understand you are no longer taking domperidone at all now?), your nursing frequency on and off domperidone, and the timeframe...
  6. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    Thanks for sharing your story about your children maintaining nursing during pregnancy, anaduralia! Nursing through pregnancy is a great analog that I hadn't considered! I am feeling more reassured...
  7. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    Thanks tclynx! I think some of your well wishes have come through, because a wave of peace of mind has helped me calmly decide to move forward. :)

    Domperidone is a wonderful option for mothers who...
  8. Re: Help: 3year old sleeping on breast

    My 3yo is currently asleep with his arm draped happily over my breast.

    DS' best friend (also 3) cosleeps with his mother, though doesn't nurse. His mother is just weaning his 6 month old baby...
  9. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    You actually wrote two things that are a BIG help!
    - I was reassured to hear that you've been able to maintain supply off domperidone! That gives me hope!
    - Your thoughts and prayers will give me...
  10. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    This is EXACTLY what I needed to hear, particularly the bolded part. I think your points to let go of are apt. I really am borrowing trouble from the future by worrying about this.

    I've done some...

    Re: Is he just done nursing?

    Great news!!! Go snuggle that little treasure! :)
  12. Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    Hey Mamas,

    I'm writing because I'm feeling quite vulnerable and need some emotional support at a crossroads in my nursing relationship. My son is 3y2m old and nursing 6-8 times night and day,...
  13. Re: Dropping pump to introduce formula

    I agree that your pump output is phenomenal, and I would urge you to push on to find an IBCLC to assist your child in latching. You have many good factors on your side, and I really think you are a...
  14. Re: You know you're nursing a toddler when...

    ...when your 3 year old traps your arm in a technically correct figure-4 hold whole nursing and says with a mouth full of nipple, "Figure 4!"

    Re: self-weaning

    Thanks maddieb. We're big on cosleeping and nursing on request. I'm treasuring this time, but am still curious how the next year will unfold. It's crazy to think that we're probably well past the...
  16. Re: 28 month old won't chew food and only drinks from the br

    I can sympathize because my son, who is now 3, was very much like your son in his strong preference for my milk until a later than usual age. He only began eating a meal of solids a day, in addition...
  17. Re: Supplementing with homemade formula

    The Infectious Diseases group at the American Academy of Pediatrics has published a policy statement on consumption of raw milk that you should read:...

    Re: self-weaning

    Good to know. DS is a frequent nurser at 3 years-- probably about 8x over a 24 hour period. I think we're going to be in for an extended child-led weaning process.
  19. Re: Supplementing with homemade formula

    I strongly recommend that you not use a formula recipe that includes raw liver and unpasteurized milk as its foundation. Doing so would potentially expose your child to harmful bacteria and...

    Re: self-weaning

    At what point were you ladies down to 3-5x per day and 1-2x per day?

    Re: Depressed after 8pm..

    Nursing my 3yo son and cosleeping/nursing overnight. Take heart! I have a relatively simple fix for you.

    Whining has always been a non-starter for me, so I made it a priority to teach DS the...
  22. Re: 2 Yr Old only bf'ing, refuses all other liquids!

    First, I feel for you. My son (now 3y1m) only started eating foods after 2.25. He was in excellent health when effectively EBF at 2, and is thriving now. Before that, he self-selected to be...
  23. Re: Feeling attacked by husband, dentist, and doctor

    My 3yo son also nurses for naps, cosleeps and nurses at night, and pretty much nurses whenever he pleases during the day. He's the happiest, healthiest child I know. I make a point of confidently...
