  1. Re: Nearly 11 mo.: distracted nurser or just nursing less

    Seattlemama, feel free to hijack this thread and tell us some more about your situation -- or start another thread if you'd rather. You've nursed you baby for 9 months already!! That deserves a round...
  2. Re: Nearly 11 mo.: distracted nurser or just nursing less

    I count a letdown as a feed for us.
  3. Re: Nearly 11 mo.: distracted nurser or just nursing less

    Thanks, you guys. I'm just worried because I read somewhere that 10 months is a prime time to accidentally wean (baby gets distracted, doesn't nurse enough, milk dries up...), but I guess I should...
  4. Re: Help! Baby is completely dependent on my breasts!

    Normal, yes. But exhausting! There were some weeks for me, right around 5-6 mo. when I thought I'd lose my mind. And then she'd get a tooth and things would be better for a bit. Or she's sleep well...

    Re: Nursing to sleep acrobatics

    Exciting Update:
    The go-with-the-flow approach that you all recommended has lead to Baby eventually falling asleep WITHOUT A NIPPLE IN HER MOUTH twice in the last week. She nurses and flings and...
  6. Nearly 11 mo.: distracted nurser or just nursing less

    Hi. My now almost 11 m.o. is gaining well, etc.
    She's eating more solids & during the day nursing far less. So, that all seems normal. But I also know that this is the prime age for distracted...

    Re: Nursing to sleep acrobatics

    Thanks for all the suggestions! The past couple times now I took your suggestion to move some of the bedtime routine to the bed & that seems to work. She's flinging around while we're reading stories...

    Nursing to sleep acrobatics

    When I lay down next to my 10 m.o. to nurse her to sleep she often spends 20 minutes or so happily flinging herself around the bed. She babbles and rolls and twists and tries to engage me in smiling,...

    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...
  13. 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...
  14. 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...
  15. 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...
  16. 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...
  19. 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."...
  20. 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...
  21. 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...
  22. 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...
  23. 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...
  25. 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?
