    Re: night weaning question

    Thanks, Meg. It's great to hear what has worked for other people. That makes sense about his learning to fall asleep on his own for naps first. Napping for us is problematic. DD won't fall asleep for...

    night weaning question

    For many reasons, I have decided that I need to night wean my 3.5 year old in the next few months. She is very resistant to the idea. When I even mention that sometime she won't be able to nurse at...
  3. Re: The Truth About Breastmilk and Ear Infections

    There are some herbal eardrop (actually, I think it's just garlic in olive oil), and you could try putting that in her ears as soon as she gets a cold, and see if it makes any difference. Have you...
  4. Re: Pediatrician advice on solids incorrect?

    I would suggest that you look into the safety of flouride, depending on how natural you want to go. I don't use flouride for myself or DD bc it competes with iodine for the thyroid and can cause...

    Re: How do I know if she's ready?

    Ok, I think the title may have thrown people off. I meant, "How do I know if she's ready to fall asleep without nursing," not, "How do I know if she's ready to wean!!" Neither of us is ready for...

    How do I know if she's ready?

    Hi all,

    DD just turned 2 and still nurses a lot, day and night. Last week while I was nursing her at bedtime, she bit me really hard and took a (tiny) chunk out of my nipple. :yikes She has...

    Re: necesito ayuda urgente!!

    Hola, me parece que no es muy tarde para que reaprenda a tomar el pecho. Lo mejor es llamar a una leader de la Leche League. Habla ingles Ud.? No se donde vive pero si no a lo mejor hay alguien que...
  8. Re: Help: Baby's 'gape' not big enough

    I had this exact problem and called a local LLL leader. She told me about the asymmetric latch. You have the baby latch on so the nipple is pointing at the roof of their mouth. When they start to...

    Re: seeking weaning advice

    I really doubt that the problem is your milk - usually that is the best thing for LO's stomach upset! And most people wean very gradually. It's a process, not an event, so you don't have to worry...
  11. Re: getting through the night; Dr. Gordon vs. Dr. Sears?

    I have a hard time taking his help because when I can hear her screaming, after a few minutes, I give up and go to her. It's probably better to give them the chance to get used to him putting her...
  12. Re: getting through the night; Dr. Gordon vs. Dr. Sears?

    Hmm...so you did night wean? I'm thinking of using the part from Dr. Gordon where instead of picking 7 hours, I start with say 3, from 12 to 3. we can gradually increase the stretch.
  13. Re: getting through the night; Dr. Gordon vs. Dr. Sears?

    It seems like maybe 50% of the people on here say night weaning helped with waking and the other 50% that it didn't. I'm hoping that when I do try it, she's in the first 50%!! :D
  14. getting through the night; Dr. Gordon vs. Dr. Sears?

    Hi everyone, after a year of breastfeeding and cosleeping, I'm really exhausted and want to get more sleep! DD is pretty irregular, some nights nursing twice, others waking every hour or two! It...
  15. Re: How do you get up the courage to nurse while you're teaching baby not to bite?

    Thanks everyone for the ideas and support. I don't know if I'm brave enough to try pushing her in toward the breast - it seems like that might make it hurt more! I've just been watching her like a...
  16. Re: How do you get up the courage to nurse while you're teaching baby not to bite?

    I'm not exactly sure what the trigger is...I was thinking it was because she has a cold and can't breathe through her nose right now. At first, I was thinking she had to open her mouth to breath and...
  17. How do you get up the courage to nurse while you're teaching baby not to bite?

    Ok, so DD (10 months) started biting a lot a few days ago. I thought it was because she has a cold and can't breath through her nose, but now I'm not so sure. Whatever the reason, she's bitten me at...
  18. Re: How many ounces do I need to pump?

    Thanks everyone! I'll plan to store 1.5 oz per hour just to be safe.
  19. Re: How many ounces do I need to pump?

    oops. Meant to say she's 3 months!
  20. How many ounces do I need to pump?

    Hi everyone, my DD has been EBF up to this point, but I want my DH to try to feed her using a cup or syringe. It seems like she can't figure out how to use the bottle, because she takes my milk just...
  21. Re: green poops, but no oversupply issues....

    I'm not familiar with testing the poops for allergies. Is there a name for the test? Can they test for all allergies?
