    I need help setting limits

    I haven't been to these forums in a while, but I need help! Ellie is 19 months and wants to nurse constantly when we're home. She's also nursing a ton at night, but she's teething so I don't mind...

    Is it safe while breastfeeding?
  3. Re: Could this be the beginning of the end?

    You can also put breastmilk in her eye; that usually works better than the drops! I hope she's feeling better soon.

    Re: if okay with jar, then okay fresh

    Flavor and spices are ok as soon as you give them solids, but don't add any extra salt to their food. Babies' kidneys can't handle a lot of sodium and they're getting all the sodium they need in...

    Her iron levels are normal!

    I'm so relieved. After being anemic for 3 months, Ellie's iron levels are finally normal. The doctor asked if she was still taking Poly-vi-sol and was surprised when I told her I was giving her...

    Re: Iron rich foods? Hemogloben low.

    My LLL leader recommended I give this to Ellie. I just couldn't do it.:o Lentils are high in iron too; Ellie loves them. Oats are great too; I add them to my homemade bread and granola. Granola...

    Do you still nurse on demand?

    I've always nursed Ellie on demand. Recently another mom expressed surprise that I still nursed Ellie on demand and so frequently. She said she fed on demand till about six months, then started...
  9. Re: I think we should have started solids earlier

    You have a good point! I try not to worry, but she just doesn't care about food. Although she does love her O's cereal.:rolleyes: I've noticed she's more interested in eating something that I'm...

    Re: Is DS's behavior typical?

    A lot of your DS's behavior sounds like teething and separation anxiety to me. Ellie recently cut her first tooth, and she would start to nurse, pop off, and scream like she was in such pain.:( ...
  11. I think we should have started solids earlier

    My husband said that last night.:( Ellie is a year old now, and there are many days when she eats absolutely nothing but breastmilk. Even if she plays with it or puts it in her mouth, it usually...

    Re: Gasping/Heaving in Sleep

    Has your baby been diagnosed with reflux? Ellie's reflux actually interfered with her breathing. She made horrible gasping noises while she slept (and occassionally she'd wake herself up). I...

    Another momma shared a great finger food idea! Whole Foods and Trader Joe's sell dried, unsweetened fruit (normally dried fruit is loaded with sugar). It makes a great finger food, especially for...

    Re: Airborne Supplement ok w/ BFing?

    I don't know how it would affect breastfeeding, but Airborne has a lot of Vitamin A. One tablet of Airborne has 5000 I.U. or 50% of the "Tolerable Upper Level Dosage" of that form of Vitamin A. Two...

    Re: When did your LO's eat 3 meals a day?

    Until last week, Ellie would wake up around 6 or 7, and we'd cosleep and she's nurse on and off til 10 or 11 am. But she seems to be dropping those last couple of hours of sleep, so she'd actually...

    When did your LO's eat 3 meals a day?

    Ellie is only a couple of weeks from being a year old, but she's only eating two meals a day (lunch and dinner). Sometimes we skip one of those meals and she doesn't even seem to notice. She still...

    Re: Question about strikes

    Ellie started having nursing strikes before she ever had solids. She had severe reflux and figured out it hurt to eat. I had to feed her with a cup because she would go 3-4 days without nursing. I...

    Throwing up while eating?

    For the last several weeks, Ellie has been vomiting while eating solids. It doesn't seem to matter what it is (even happens from drinking sips of water from a sippy cup). I usually nurse her right...
  20. Re: 6 month old still nursing 10+ times a day

    Welcome to the forums!:o

    My DD is 10 months old and she still nurses that often. When she was the same age as your LO, she preferred to "snack" frequently so she ate even more. I wouldn't push...

  23. Re: What would I do without breastfeeding?

    I completely agree, DJ's mom, breastfeeding is as much for me as it is for Ellie... I really hope she nurses for a while longer.

    I love your new avatar pic too!

    Fezzik, thank you for that...
  24. What would I do without breastfeeding?

    I don't know how I would function as a mom without breastfeeding. What would I do if I couldn't nurse:

    When my DD falls down while trying to walk?

    After those horrible shots?

    When she's...
