  1. Re: Daughter favors on breast over the other.

    I think this is pretty common. I know my DS has a preference. I don't see a need to pump unless you're having supply issues.
  2. can LO have occasional cow's milk w/o triggering weaning?

    Has anyone given LO cow's milk while baby is BFing without triggering weaning??

    My almost-13-month-old still nurses really frequently and he stopped taking bottles of EBM awhile back. I've...

    Re: Almost a year

    You're not getting ahead of yourself; 12 months will be here before you know it!

    As with babies of all ages, nursing frequency can vary a lot after 1 year. I hear a lot of moms mention 3-4...
  4. Re: bottle or sippy cup for older baby - time for cow's milk?? :(

    DS just turned one. He can drink out of a cup but he spills a LOT. I have a hard time watching all that hard-pumped BM dribble down his shirt! I've never had very good pumping output and frankly...

    Thanks to everyone for the feedback a couple of weeks ago. (Sorry for posting in the old thread and then starting a new one... I tried to change the subject line from the old thread but it didn't...

    Re: Difficulty with Letdown?

    Sorry I can't offer much help... I have always had slow letdown but I only had to worry about one baby! I commend you for your effort and hope you find a solution. What worked for us was just lots...

    Re: fussiness after feeding

    We went through this too. It does get better! We tried gas drops, which seemed to help. We also had him on meds for acid reflux for awhile. I was never convinced that was it, but it's worth...
  8. Re: bottle or sippy cup for older baby - time for cow's milk?? :(

    Thanks to everyone for the feedback a couple of weeks ago. Things have been crazy so we haven't been working too much on getting DS to take BM from a sippy, but based on what we have done it's not...

    Re: Super Clingy

    She's "officially" a little young for separation anxiety, but we went through a very similar phase at that age. Hang in there! DS is now a year, and the separation anxiety comes and goes. I think...

    Re: Human Pacifier

    It's hard because comfort and food are so intertwined at the breast! You should be able to tell if he's getting anything if you hear swallows and your breasts feel emptier. Is he eating a lot of...

    Re: 9 Weeks and Refusing Breast?

    I hope things have been going better for you! Babies can make big jumps in efficiency and need less time at the breast. If she is not showing hunger signs and is having regular diapers, you should...

    Re: nursing strike - help

    We haven't had an official strike but for us the cases of nursing refusal have always seemed to involve teething, so I would suggest running through all the options for teething comfort. It's just...
  13. bottle or sippy cup for older baby - what do you do?

    My DS turns one tomorrow (eek!) and has been refusing the bottle for quite a few months. This has not been really problematic for us b/c I'm a WAHM, but it WOULD be nice to get away for a couple...
  14. Re: 6mth old is nursing 5+times a night

    this is really common i think. i went through the same thing at the same age, and i found lots of threads on here about it! so at least you're not alone. i too was unwilling to let baby cry. i...
  15. Re: yet another thread about TEETH

    there have been phases where i've used motrin once or twice a day. i worry too about overdoing it! but if you're trying other things first and reserving it for when it's really needed, i think it's...

    Re: Need opinion, FAST!

    Just don't get too caught up in the numbers. Guidelines are really helpful but every baby is different, and their needs can vary daily too. There is no magic number for exactly how many ounces a...

    Sorry if I sounded like I was pushing formula. I did not mean that at all. I was under the impression that it was one of few options under the circumstances. I agree formula should be a last...

    Please please please don't feel like a failure. You're dealing with a short-term mini-crisis, not failing. I do remember that feeling... I had a traumatic birth with some minor complications...

    Adding rice cereal to her bottle is NOT recommended and there are several reasons why; there is a good summary here: http://www.kellymom.com/nutrition/solids/solids-sleep.html

    how much food is too much?

    My 11-mo DS eats 3-4x/day and can eat 1/4 cup of food or more per sitting. Is this too much?!

    He eats a nice mix of fruit, veggies, grains, beans, and meat. He still nurses frequently (about...

    I don't know about stages and all that b/c I've been making my own baby food, but I would suggest thinking about what your goals are generally and what's appropriate for your baby specifically. For...

    the birthday cake debate

    My DS's 1-year birthday is coming up and I'm sure the family will expect the whole let-baby-rub-cake-all-over-his-head routine. I'm not particularly tied to that tradition but I don't feel like...

    Re: Which veggie to start with?

    I think it's a matter of picking one and seeing what baby prefers. My LO loves squash, and he hasn't turned orange yet. :) Green beans he could take or leave. I don't know if it's a taste issue...
  24. Re: 10 1/2 months and doesn't want solids

    I know the idea of a speech therapist referral seems a little off the wall... we got one 3 months ago when DS was gagging on everything and I thought it seemed a little far-fetched and unnecessary,...

    delays in finger feeding

    I seem to have the opposite problem of most people on here! My DS loves purees but is not on finger foods yet (though at 10.5-mo old he's "supposed" to be). Can anyone tell me if they had a baby who...
