    Re: Will I ever dry up?

    No, family is complete. I'm 39, and it took a lot of effort and artificial reproductive tech to get my little one. I'm all done.

    So, if I'm doing nothing to remove milk now, what's happening to...

    Will I ever dry up?

    I nursed DS until 3 1/2. We were down to only quick before-bed sessions once a day. Last nursed him 2 months ago. I still have milk.

    Seriously, I just now leaked a bit onto my shirt. I'm...

    Re: Boobs after weaning

    I know this is an older thread, but just thought I'd add my experience. I was a 34D before pregnancy. At the height of newborn nursing, with an oversupply issue, I was a 36I. Yes, "I." I tried on...

    Re: embarrassing question

    We often left DS out of diapers to air out periodically through the day, from maybe 8 months or so. He sometimes touched himself while nursing even then. It's not sexual, and not a sign you've...

    Re: 16 month old using me as a pacifier

    Sorry you're having a hard time. I just want to say first that that phrase, using you as a pacifier, is a pet peeve of mine. A pacifier, or thumb, is a substitute for mom, a diversion of a child's...

    Re: Not nursing after tonsillectomy

    I guess what bothers me the most, too, is that we've always been attachment parents, very devoted to DS, cosleepers, gentle discipline, everything. And now, since DS is so little and doesn't...

    Re: Not nursing after tonsillectomy

    So, off to bed for another night, no nursing. This time, he just said "nahs hurt," and then pointed and said "no milk." I've tried expressing, he still won't suck. I've been hand expressing a bit,...

    Not nursing after tonsillectomy

    DS is 2 yrs 5 months old. On Monday, he had surgery to remove his tonsils and adenoids. He had severe obstructive sleep apnea (at its worst, he'd stop breathing every 2-3 breaths, for up to 20...

    Re: Positioning with large breasts

    At one point I was a "J" cup when nursing my son, and I'm now back down to "only" a DDD. I always had to support my breast. I still do when he nurses in anything other than side-lying position - if...

    Re: Vanilla extract for teething?

    We got a 3-pack of liquid Advil at Costco, we went through so much of it. I was kind of uncomfortable about medicating DS every night, but teething is very painful, and the pediatrician stated that...

    Re: Dilemma: BFing or formula

    I hate to say this, but my son is a toddler and I'm still tired all the time.

    So long as you are nursing on demand (when baby wants and for how long baby wants), there's no reason your milk...
  12. Re: First "toddler" post & reflecting on

    I NIP'd until DS was about 15-16 months. I still tend to nurse him on airplanes. Otherwise, my DS doesn't need to nurse out of hunger, and we don't spend hugely long stretches of time out of the...

    Re: What do they call it?

    DS calls for "nah-nahs." When I pick him up at daycare, he's grabbing at my shirt and yelling "NAH-NAH," but since toddler nursing is pretty much unheard-of in that world, everyone assumes he's...

    Re: Milk supply and peeing frequency

    Regarding the sippy cup, my DS always did better with a straw cup. He can "latch on" and suck from it, more like nursing.

    Re: night terror??

    Ah, the night screamies. We have a lot of experience with them. In my experience, there seem to be multiple causes. One night ds was screaming every 10 minutes, and we figured out it was probably...

    Local radio DJ and pumping

    This is somewhat random, but one of the local radio stations has a female DJ who recently had a baby and pumps at work. They've created a contest where you guess, in CCs, how much she pumps during...

    I guess I should also say that DH and I both work outside the home during the week, and on the weekends we tend to organize outings of no more than 4 hours at a time, just to minimize meltdowns and...

    Re: NIP 20 month old

    DS is 20 months next week. The only place we really nip is on airplanes and at airports, when DS is worn out and out of his element. Otherwise, I distract. I absolutely nip'd when DS was younger,...

    Re: Twiddling

    My son has never twiddled (he's 19 months). I only expose one breast at a time. Now that his arms are longer, he does tend to have a roving hand. He has been known to pat or rub my arms, pat my...

    Re: I don't know what to do next...

    We introduced a straw cup to DS when he was about 6 months old. By 9 months, he'd taken very well to it. There's an element of sucking associated with the straw cup that makes it a more natural...

    . . . when DS realizes that he has nipples, too. DS was rubbing his tummy and chest after his bath, and in his meanderings found his nipple. Swear to god, he looked at me, looked down at his chest,...

    Still very stuffy and not feeling great, but he actually let me suction his nose without much of a fight and was able to...

    I think we're going to end up weaned

    By the time he turned one year, DS had dramatically cut back his nursing. He stopped nursing when we got home from daycare, and in the morning when he woke up. He's been only nursing to sleep at...

    Re: I don't know what to do next...

    I stopped pumping at work when DS was 11 1/2 months. He's 17 months and still nurses before bed, during the night, and in the morning during the work week, sometimes also before naps on the weekends.

    Re: overfeeding/nurse on demand?

    After a rocky start to breastfeeding, we got the hang of things and DS gained a TON of weight. At some point around 3-4 months, he was almost perfectly round. Like Cartman on South Park. It was...
