    Re: So how often do you nurse?

    My 15 month old nurses every 2 hours or more often when home, and will sometimes go 3 to 4 hours if we are out and about or she happened to eat a lot of solids for a meal (rare). She wants to nurse...

    Re: 16 months old, 16.5 pounds

    My 15 month old is tiny...about 18 lbs. We see 6 month olds in stores who are bigger than her. Her ped was concerned too, b/c she fell off the charts. I wasn't too concerned b/c she is very...
  3. Re: Confused about nursing and whole milk

    Thank you for these wonderful thoughts! I have been giving a little cow's milk in a sippy cup to have as a snack, or along with food. I know cow's milk is not needed but it is nice to be reminded...
  4. Confused about nursing and whole milk

    Well, my DD had her first birthday a few weeks ago! I am planning on letting her nurse as long as she likes (provided it is still going well) but I would like to add whole milk to her day-time...

    Re: we started solids

    Absolutely! I thought my DD would devour food when I finally gave it to her...nope. What I have found is she plays with food in the high chair, but if she sits on my lap during meals she wants to...

    Re: Clarification on size please

    I'm having a hard time with that too. I offer a food, then maybe a day or two goes by when I don't offer b/c she was grumpy, or sleeping, or just not interested. Then I'll offer it again, and...

    Re: Clarification on size please

    What a great idea! I think that is wonderful b/c she definitely likes eating off my plate vs. putting the food on her high chair right now.

    DJ's mom...thanks for all the info! I was in a hurry...

    Re: Clarification on size please

    OK...I guess what I'm wondering is what is more hazardous as far as choking? Tiny pea size pieces or large pieces that they bite off a hunk? I know she'll gag and stuff, ok with that, just don't...

    Clarification on size please

    I hope I'm not asking something that's been answered a million times already, but...I'm doing baby-led solids with DD and she is 8 months old. She has only eaten a few things (really a few bites)...
  11. Re: Can you fix a snacker? (and some other questions)

    Welcome to LLL!
    I just wanted you to know my DD was like that...nurse for a short time then again every hour. It was hard, but we found out she had reflux and nursing often kept her tummy from...

    Re: a broken boob?

    From what you are describing I wonder if your LO has reflux? Mine does and she has an awful time when I lay her down to eat from lefty. Try lefty with a different hold like football or laying on...
  13. Re: I think little man is ready to eat...wwyd?

    If you try baby led solids then you'll know when he's ready, because he'll either put the food in his mouth, or he won't! I thought my DD, 7 mo now, was ready a few weeks ago, but she won't put the...

    Re: Question???

    Sounds like your LO is comfort nursing. Mine does that all the time. If I can I let her stay that way...but if its the middle of the night and I want to go back to bed, I gently break the suction...

  21. Re: help! any strategies for breastfeeding with reflux?

    I agree about the elimination diet with a food journal. Mark down what you eat and when you notice the reflux bothing your LO. My DD's reflux is 100 times worse if I eat any citrus, including...

    Breastmilk is all they need for the first year. Solids are for learning taste, textures...basically they are for fun. If he is refusing them, then I wouldn't force him to eat. Let him eat his...
