    Re: wean to morning night?

    You should be ok. My DD is 2.2 yrs old. I work FT so we nurse just in the morning and at night on weekdays and anytime she feels the need on weekends and we have no shortage.

    Re: What do all you working mamas do for a living?

    Wow! What interesting careers you all have! It's great to see all these working moms who BF too. In terms of the general population, I don't think there are a lot of us. It's so great to find...

    Re: Did any of you have to convince your dh...

    I have never tried to convince DH that extended BFing was right for DD...because I never talked to him about it. I'm not sure that was the right thing to do - exclude him from the decision to...

    About three weeks ago, my DD who will be 2 on 9/19 stopped feeding completely from my right side. She will only take the left side. Even prior to this, I had a hard time convincing her to take the...

    Oh - I forgot to ask this question...has that Dr ever breastfed their child? Is he/she speaking from experience?
  9. Re: Pediatrician recommends to stop nursing 18 month old

    I must respond from a practical point of view - I am sure others will respond from a scientic point...How can that so called Dr say there is nothing beneficial about nursing past 18mths? There is...

    Re: Do you tell your kid's ped about nursing?

    At DD's 18mth well visit, they didn't even ask if DD was nursing. They (DR and asst.) just started talking about what kind of milk she should be drinking. I had to inform them that we were nursing...

    I am so sorry you & baby have to go through this - I know how hard a fussy baby can be. Both of my children cried almost every waking moment from birth to two months. In our case it was due to...

    Re: Anyone ever get positive criticism?

    Other than my own mom, I don't personally know ANYONE who has nursed as long as I am doing. My DD is 22 1/2 mths, still going strong and will wean when she is ready to. The only positive comments I...

    Balancing Act - EBF and Career?

    Anyone out there struggling with EBF and climbing the corporate ladder? I work FT as a corporate department manager and still BF my 20 mth old. I feel I am about AP as a working mom can be (we EBF,...
  18. Re: What to do after a reflux episode mid-feeding?

    For the most part, the medicine was worth it. After they started taking the medicine, it was rare that their breath smelled acidy so I knew that the burning in their chest was minimal. It does not,...
  19. Re: What to do after a reflux episode mid-feeding?

    I am sorry to hear your DS has reflux. I can empathize as both of my children had it and did exactly as you are describing. Both of my children were put on meds (zantac for DS and pepcid for DD)...
