  1. Re: Doctor wants me to reduce breast feedig

    All great ideas, and I would just add that if you did wean, or reduce your nursing sessions, you run the risk of her getting that many fewer calories overall. There's no guarantee that she'll make...
  2. Re: seeing a specialist tomorrow, looking for support

    Also, my LC said that in rare cases there can be a tiny "microabrasion" in the milk ducts and/or channels in the nipple itself, which can cause a little milk to leak and harden, potentially causing a...
  3. Re: seeing a specialist tomorrow, looking for support

    Thanks, Mommal. I should have mentioned that I don't have a bleb going on, at least now. I had a possible blister earlier on, maybe at about week 2-3, but I tried gently breaking it with a needle...

    Hi Moms!

    Re: Complicated situation - please help!

    Hi! I just wanted to add about the iron / constipation issue: adding iron supplements or more iron-rich foods can be constipating in itself. I would add mango to your mix of fruits, and like...

    Good, I'm glad you got another opinion and that you're finding the support you need. Phew!
  7. Re: 13 month old wants to nurse ALL. THE. TIME.

    Hello! It's also very normal for babes at that age to become clingier and get separation anxiety. They're gaining independence quickly (cognitive awareness is growing by leaps and bounds, and...

    Re: Wow, we've made it HERE!

    Yay! Congrats!
    We're in the same boat, and I remember you from almost 5 years ago with OUR son, and then last summer with OUR DD.
    We'll be at one year on Tuesday, completely formula free,...
  9. Re: Advice needed:Advised by Endocrinologist to shift to for

    I agree with Meg and Audrey (and YOU!) - it doesn't make any sense to take away her breastmilk. If anything, offering more and also offering more variety at mealtimes makes way more sense to me. ...

    Re: 19 months--still no period?

    Mine came back at about 6 or 7 months postpartum. I agree with mommal, I'd bet it was the IUD, especially since you did have a period at 9 months. When did you get the IUD?

    Re: decongestant recommendations

    Lehall, I've tried phenylephrine in the past and it didn't work as well for me, but it would be worth trying again. Because of the problems I have I took pseudoephedrine every day for many, many...

    Re: Bedtime woes...

    Meg, the 4 year old has a really great bedtime routine, in his own room, and can fall asleep by himself (books, etc, kisses, say goodnight, and I can leave him in bed awake).

    The now-almost-6...

    I tried bringing her to the bedtime routine with my son a few times early on, but she would not tolerate it. She was super squirmy and fussy and crying. I'm thinking as she gets older it will be...
