    Giving up on leftie?

    Hi! My baby is now 10 m.o. and doing great. She's loving experimenting with solids but not getting much in terms of calories from anything but b.m.

    She's also starting to sleep better...

    Re: Dairy-free suggestions

    We're dairy free here. I recommend trying a bunch of plant-based milks until you find a couple you like (soy, oat, rice, almond, flax, etc). Different brands taste really different, too. People freak...
  5. Re: Need a little reassurance - I know I'm being silly...

    Ok! We're headed out of town to be with family (lots of kids) this weekend, and it know she'll be really distracted. I'll definitely offer often, particularly as it's been so hot & I know she must be...
  6. Need a little reassurance - I know I'm being silly...

    My baby is nearly 8 months old now & has gained well...
    She has nursed at least every 2 hours since we figured out breastfeeding.
    Except in the past 4 days she's regularly had stretches when she...
  7. Re: Estrogen Dominance after Extended Nursing?

    So, if I'm following, the dr thinks that your newly normalized thyroid levels may be stimulating relactation? And you're feeling engorged? And you're hoping to get pg? And you're pumping just a...
  8. Re: Almost plugged duct every morning

    We were on a relaxing vacation this pAst weekend and the combo of nursing a lot, relaxing, and chain-drinking water all day seems to have fixed whatever the issue was. Maybe all the cookies & chips...

    Re: Disagreement w husband re:BLW

    Ok! That sounds good. I'd rather wait & she seems happy with the 0-1 solid meals a day + gumming on some scraps. Honestly, I'm mostly thinking of solids as something to keep her occupied while we eat...

    Re: Disagreement w husband re:BLW

    Yes, I suspect I'm making a mountain out of a molehill! She's only eating solids once a day at dinner, and not even every day. He's always home for dinner. When we add a second "meal" (not sure when...
  11. Re: Estrogen Dominance after Extended Nursing?

    Fwiw: I found it took quite some time for my TSH levels to regulate after I started taking replacement hormone for hashimoto's. And then I went & got pg which required another round of "settling."...
  12. Re: Trying to get pregnant while breastfeeding..

    Mamabusch, what is this "sleeping through the night" that you speak of? ;)
    But seriously, I've heard that frequent night wakings are a big factor in suppressing ovulation. Were the reappearance of...
  13. Re: 4 mo old baby replaced with overtired raccoon. PLS ADVIS

    OMG, 4 months was tough. It was around then that I "gave up" and let my baby nap in my arms for just about every nap. I was in these forums asking the same question that you are (namely: how will I...
  14. Re: Help with frequet night wakings in 6mo old baby.

    Oh man, I know that foot slamming move!
    My baby is about the same age as yours & also needs a nipple to fall back asleep. For the second nap, I've found that I can stretch it to two hours by making...
  15. Re: Almost plugged duct every morning

    Thanks! I'll keep those mastitis symptoms handy & hope I don't need them.
    Yesterday I had a plugged spot in the other breast! I think maybe some of those diet suggestions might be a good idea. I...

    Re: Disagreement w husband re:BLW

    Thank you ladies!! I think he's bothered by the mess just on principle. This is our first baby & he's 45 years old (I'm no spring chicken either at 36) & I think getting used to the general chaos of...
  17. Re: Almost plugged duct every morning

    Well, yesterday it was plugged again. The area has been sore for several days too. At what point is the problematic?

    Re: Disagreement w husband re:BLW

    Well, the problem is that she will eat! Given the airplane strategy I think she'd go on eating forever! But I'd prefer to let her develop the skills on her own. But that involves a lot of food flying...

    Disagreement w husband re:BLW

    Hi! My baby is 7 m.o. and we've been playing w food for about a month. We're doing mostly BLW, though I do load up spoons for her to play with & eat from. We have some concerns about iron (she was 5...
  20. Re: Almost plugged duct every morning

    Update: last night I sat up to reeeeeaaaaally nurse her before bed. We got three let downs on righty in a pretty short amount of time & then nursed as usual through the night. My nipples are still...
  21. Re: Almost plugged duct every morning

    I suspect you're right on all accounts. I think it's positioning & sleepy half-nursing overnight. I mostly sleep through nursing overnight but I'll have to make an effort to wake up, or to give her a...
  22. Almost plugged duct every morning

    I side-lay nurse my 7 m.o. on both breasts through the night. The past several mornings I've woken up with the same painfully engorged duct(s) on my right breast. I can, eventually, get it cleared...
  23. Re: Trying to get pregnant while breastfeeding..

    good question! I'm wondering about this too. My 7 m.o. still nurses every 2 hours (and sometimes all night), but I'm 36 and times-a-wastin'. Actually, my midwives suggested waiting a year before...
  24. Re: conflicted about my attachment to my baby

    I wholeheartedly agree with mommal's baby-steps idea. My husband reeeaaaaly wanted a date night and at 6 mo we went to see a musical. We were gone for 3.5 hours and it was a disaster (for me mostly....
  25. Re: Baby not eating. Lactation consultants stumped!

    What a champ you are!! You asked how long the galactagogues take to work. In my case, the fenugreek took about two weeks. Just FYI. Also, a big hug to your husband who sounds like an amazing support...
