  1. self-weaning or nursing strike? Help!

    Hi,
    My son turned 1 this past Sunday, which also happened to be the last day he nursed. Don't get me wrong, I wanted to nurse him into his toddlerhood so this was in no way my intention. I also...

    I posted this in the 'Weaning' forum too but since there may be different people reading different forums, I am re-posting here too. I need all the help I can get. Thanks.

  4. Re: Help! LO won't take bottle, sippy or straw cup

    I am sorry for all the troubles. It's great that you are part-time and at home (at least for now) so you can rescue your DD but perhaps your DD won't take bottles or sippy cups since she knows...

    Re: weaning sooner

    Thanks djsmom for your encouraging words.

    I have a new dilemma. I just found out yesterday that at daycare, they won't give breastmilk (or formula) after 12 months. According to USDA rules, which...

    Re: Starting Work-Help

    Yes, it's never easy to leave your baby with others. Be glad you're only doing it 3 days a week, not 5 :).
    I went back full-time when my son was 4 months old. It took a while for both of us to...

    blood in breastmilk

    Hi Ladies,
    My son's been biting me (teething a couple of weeks ago) off and on and yesterday, he bit me hard enough for me to bleed. I only noticed when I was pumping though.
    Anyway, today at work,...

    Re: weaning sooner

    Thanks for all the inputs.
    I actually wasn't talking about baby wanting to wean himself. I know it's premature, I just was thinking he'd not want to nurse during the day and probably only when he's...

    Re: weaning sooner

    No, we have not done any night nursing for a long time. He sleeps through the night unless there is a big change (travel, different bed, noises). So I will be down to nursing 2-3 times a day only. I...

    weaning sooner

    Is it true that working breastfeeding moms have a shorter nursing experience than stay-at-home moms?
    I have a few working friends and all of their babies (boys) were starting to lose interest in...
  11. Re: won't take a bottle - when to introduce a sippy cup?

    I started giving my son a sippy cup (nuby soft nipple) at around 6 months with a little water in it so he could get used to it. At first, he would just play and not really drink but every day was a...
  12. Re: Baby eating more than I can produce??

    I agree with others that adding an extra session and lengthening your pumping sessions should help. I also sometimes pump in the car!
    I have been pumping at nights before bed time and I get 3-4...

    Re: 8 month old feeding

    Thanks for the replies. He has 1-3 poopy diapers and his wet diapers are normal too, 5-6 times a day.
    I tried to nurse him more often this past weekend, 5 times, and also gave him solids only twice...

    8 month old feeding

    Hi,
    I started my son on little bit of solids after 6.5 months and he loves everything. Now at 8 months, I give him table food as well as baby food (both home made and organic kind).
    Anyway, he gets...

    Re: Feeling frustrated with pumping

    Your LO is very young so your milk production is less too. I started pumping when my son was a week old and I'd get about 1-2 oz per session total. Then I'd add up the pumped milk and freeze them in...

    Re: suggestions on how to pump more

    I have been back to work full-time for 2.5 months now. I agree with PP. A good pump helps so much. I have the Medela Pump N Style and I can get about 4-5 oz per session out of it. I also pump at...

    Re: quick nursing sessions?

    Update - he's now 6 months old and has shortened his nursing sessions even more, to 2-3 min per side, and he still fusses or cries if I try to put him back on. He's also very distracted even when...

    Re: quick nursing sessions?

    Thank you so much for your inputs. I feel better about the quick sessions and the 'Monday blues'.
    I am making more milk now than when I first returned to work full-time a month ago so that means I...

    Re: Menstruating 9 weeks PP?

    That seems to be very quick for EBF. I still haven't had my period and my son is 5 months old today. Could it be still from post-partum bleeding?
    If it were me, I would call the OB/GYN's office and...

    Re: pumping sessions

    I am sure 10 minutes is sufficient for foremilk/hindmilk balance, especially if your little one is happy with the amount of milk you have. I just know 10 min is too short for me. Thanks.
    Anyone else...

    Re: pumping sessions

    Thanks for your input Isaiah's Mommy.
    Isn't 10 minutes too short? Do you get enough? I have a 2nd let down after 10 min or even sometimes a 3rd after 15 min but not always.
    Thanks.

    quick nursing sessions?

    My son would nurse for about 10-15 min on each breast and longer if he was sleepy but since about a week or so, he starts on one boob (doesn't matter which as I have tried alternating), and then...
