    Re: Hardcore Hair Loss!

    Totally normal. Mine started falling out this time around 3 months pp. It also had that horrible pp flat dullness to it. Nothing like nice pg hair! But I got 4 inches cut off and that really helped....
  2. is it realistic to start pumping at 11months?

    I didn't pump a whole lot with #1 and almost never now with #2. Only when he refuses to eat and I'm uncomfortable. But, I'm thinking of picking up an evening class in the fall for a little extra...

  4. sick baby screaming at the breast - any ideas?

    My 4 month old hasn't been eating well since last night. When he gets tired, I try to start our usual nap routine - swaddle, rocking & nursing - but he screams and won't take the breast. I don't...

    Re: any advice on intro of cow's milk?

    We tried for months to get DS to drink cow's milk. Didn't matter what we called it, whether we served it warm or cold. I don't blame him, really, it's gross. What worked - chocolate. I give him those...

    Re: I wish I were here.

    I think it's bittersweet any time they pass a major milestone. I felt a little sad when DS weaned too, but he was clearly fine with it. Sometimes, I imagine he only hung in there to make me feel...
  8. Re: Is 3 - 6 months normally this hard? venting

    Briefly, yes! Only I think it was months 4-7 with DS1. He was a very active baby and I didn't understand his sleeping needs - I was so wrapped up with feeding him, I didn't understand sleeping is...

    Re: Worried won't be able to breastfeed

    You're going to do great! Try your best to stay confident and surround yourself with supportive people. A nursing mother's group, whether LLL or a community one, is a great place to practice nursing,...

    Re: stuffy nose - but only at night

    stuffy nose - but only at night

    My two month old is having a hard time sleeping and nursing at night due to a stuffed up nose. Poor thing is snorting away all night long and waking himself up because of it. The toddler has a cold -...

    Re: My family's "Breastfeeding Intervention"

    well, sleeping "through the night" is relative. If you mean straight for 12 hours without waking, that's a little much to ask of an 8month old. If you mean one good long stretch at night, I would say...

    Re: Need help badly ... too early to call??

    Lansinoh also helped me out this time around. With my first son, I also had such nipple pain it made me cry - and there wasn't anything wrong with the latch, either. I don't care what people say,...

    Re: demand feeding - can't remember

    Thanks - I don't see the need to wake him. Last night, he did just fine waking me when he was hungry. He's a bottomless pit! But that's not a bad idea about day time. It wouldn't hurt to start gently...

    demand feeding - can't remember

    When it's OK to stop waking baby for feedings and just feed on demand. My gluttonous 4 day old has already regained his birth weight plus some. I had oversupply last time and already seem to be...

    Re: Just figured out a trick for cow's milk

    That's interesting. I gave up trying to get mine to drink it. I figured he just didn't like it for the same reason I don't - because it tastes gross. But the ped did want us to start trying cow's...

    Re: Do you still mix cereal w/ BM?

    Once he got used to it, I made the cereal with water. It took forever to pump what I needed for cereal and pumping made feeding time such a lengthy chore. After 12mo, I started making his cereal with...

    I made it from fresh sage and added honey, which helped with the taste. It doesn't taste great, but I was in too much pain to care! It really helped me. Peppermint just didn't cut it. But you could...

    Mine won't touch cow's milk either. The first few times we tried (when he was still nursing), he would take a sip and look at me like "this stuff is for cows mom, I want the good stuff!" Last time I...

    Re: How do you sneak the veggies in?

    meatloaf is a good one. I add some combintation of carrots, zucchini and spinach. (I hate zucchini myself, so it's good for me too.:) ) I also add ham & peas or spinach to mac & cheese.
