  1. Re: SO ready to WEAN almost 3 year old!

    You're right, your situation is different than mine. If it helps, while my husband was there to help, my son and I didn't separate when we weaned. He still slept with me and went to sleep with me. ...

    Re: Has anybody weaned a 3 year old?

    It went perfectly. The whole house helped and it only took 2 days. There were actually days that were months later (I think it's been around 4-5 months?) that were tougher than those first couple...

    Re: Has anybody weaned a 3 year old?

    We've gotten through two nights now! Last night, going to sleep was tougher than the first night but after he had a snack, he laid down and crashed next to me. The middle of the nights were just...

    Re: Weaning a 4 year old?

    I went during the day first, when he was much more agreeable. He completely dropped napping for quite some time but eventually, decided he was sleepy enough to take the occasional nap on his own...

    Re: Has anybody weaned a 3 year old?

    I'm so tempted to leave for a weekend. My husband knows how done I am, and he's willing to help, it's just so tough right now. We're all really exhausted from a demanding life. Yes, I'd like to...

    Re: Has anybody weaned a 3 year old?

    Thanks so much. It's comforting to know I'm not alone. I tried a couple of months ago to get him a special weaning cup and stuffie but when night fell, he didn't give a crap about either one of...

    Has anybody weaned a 3 year old?

    I have no idea what to do. I've wanted to wean my son, who turned 3 in August, for quite some time. And it's actually bothered me to be nursing for several months. Now I'm getting resentful and...

    Re: When should I night wean?

    This is all very personal and individual. There is no "should." I never found the need to night wean my kids because nursing at night doesn't bother me. My nearly 3 year old still nurses at night...

    Re: Question about honey.

    That's interesting how it says corn syrup is also a contaminant. I wonder why that's not big news? :rolleyes: If big agriculture found a way to profit from honey and put it in everything, I'm sure...
  11. Re: Is BM and Solids Enough (And I can't believe I'm posting here.)

    This was so interesting to read, I looked it up. What I found was that cows have just one stomach, but it's sort of divided into four sections. Nowhere could I find the 8 stomach thing. Am I...

    Re: Why, after 8 mos am I still sore?

    If it's lasted the entire 8 months, I would look into something like tongue tie or an unusual palate. Soreness is not normal after maybe the first few days or weeks, after that it's most likely...

    Re: In need of some advise

    If your little one is gaining and has plenty of wet/dirty diapers then you have plenty of milk. If he seems like he's unusually hungry, then it's probably a growth spurt, which will last a couple of...
  16. Re: Lots of milk except at 9pm-Midnight??? Help!

    Both of my kids did this. Babies cluster feed in the evenings and it can get pretty intense and pretty tough to handle a couple of times a week up until maybe 3 months? My youngest nursed himself...

    Re: Breast Pain

    If I were to take a guess, I would say that's what it is with what you describe. That website I linked made a few simple suggestions that may help:

    •Avoid cold. Apply dry heat to the breast when...

    Re: New Mom With Questions

    It sounds like your baby is going through a growth spurt, which almost every baby does from day of life 10-14. Give it another day or two for your little one to stimulate your milk production and...

    Cross cradle may be difficult to maintain through a feed but I heard some great advice about it. Once you get your little one latched on well, then put your other arm underneath baby's head to...

    No, not too young for chicken. In fact, soft cooked meats are often recommended as a great first food. And again, if it were me, and the food weren't too heavily salted, I would just go for it with...

    Totally agree with all of this. The worst part is that most pedis are giving information based off of personal experience rather than fact. That's the biggest, most common problem that I hear...
