  1. Re: Can BF really interfere with food consumption?

    Thank you, both! So eloquently put. Such voices of reason. And so exactly what I needed to hear. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! :clap
  2. Can BF really interfere with food consumption?

    My 2.4 yo daughter has always been at the bottom end of the weight chart. Now, though, she's started climbing the height chart, too, so basically she's getting taller and skinnier, which concerns the...
  3. Re: Chemicals in lotion affect nursing toddler?

    Thank you! I'm not sure how they'll feel about working with coconut oil, but we'll see... ;)
  4. Re: Chemicals in lotion affect nursing toddler?

    Thank you, Debbers. We actually use Honest's dishwasher soap and sun screen. :)

    And, thank you, Lllmeg. I'm not sure what I'm thinking. I guess I've always viewed a fever as a sign of the body...
  5. Re: Chemicals in lotion affect nursing toddler?

    Thank you! I needed to hear that. The coincidence is so uncanny, though.
  6. Chemicals in lotion affect nursing toddler?

    I'm going to call the pediatrician tomorrow, but I'd love any thoughts someone on here might have.

    Because of skin issues of my own, I've only used water, coconut oil, and vegetable oil soap (only...

    Re: weaning questions

    I'm sorry. I didn't mean to cause harm. Hummingbird seemed pretty desperate, so I thought I'd share something that a friend had had some success with. I didn't mean to suggest burning her child's...

    Re: weaning questions

    I am so sorry you're going through this. My health is a bit of a mess at the moment for the same reason -- the medications suggested aren't knowingly safe for breastfeeding. I applaud you for having...

    Re: Moisturizers safe?

    Bummer about the Aubrey products. It's a shame when companies do that. *sigh*

    And, yes, I have tried pure coconut oil. I've also tried aloe directly from the plant (although perhaps that's not...

    Re: Moisturizers safe?

    Thank you!

    I wish they'd say on the packaging how much penetrates the skin. I called the company. They haven't tested the product for either pregnancy or breastfeeding. And, I certainly wouldn't...

    Re: Moisturizers safe?

    Thank you!

    I never know how to read the results. There always seem to be so many unknowns ("data limited," etc.). Do you just look at the number?

    And, wouldn't you know it? The moisturizer...

    Moisturizers safe?

    Hello!

    Thanks to this wonderful forum, I know there's Infant Risk Center to find out if prescription drugs are safe, but do we have to worry about over-the-counter moisturizers/shampoos, etc.?

    Re: Frequent waking during naps

    In my experience, weaning and sleeping through the night or continuously during naps are not related. I have found, though, that our 14-month-old often wakes up and cries out for a minute or two and...

    Re: Ear drops safe while breastfeeding?

    Thank you so much for all this information.

    I do see that the eczema comes and goes. I had an eczema flare up when I was breastfeeding my son, too, but it was between my legs and behind my ears...
  17. Re: Ouch! Not biting, per se, but more "latching with teeth"

    I've had a similar experience with our 14-month-old daughter, although my nipples haven't gotten to the point of bleeding. FWIW, I just grinned and bore it and eventually (after about two weeks), my...

    Re: Ear drops safe while breastfeeding?

    Sorry to alarm you unnecessarily. I just called and they are definitely still around.

    Just in case anyone else is interested in these two medications, I spoke with dd's pediatrician. She wasn't...

    Re: Ear drops safe while breastfeeding?

    Yes. I called at 10 am eastern time (9 am central). There was no answer at all, no machine, nothing. I'll try again this afternoon during dd's nap. Perhaps I misdialed. I'll post either way after...

    Ear drops safe while breastfeeding?

    Hello!

    I'm still nursing our 14-month-old and plan to let her self-wean, so I haven't a clue when I'll stop. I've just been diagnosed with ear infections and eczema in both ears and have been...
  22. Re: Clogged duct this late in the game?

    Thank you, everyone! I'll give the treatments a try.
  23. Clogged duct this late in the game?

    Hello!

    Not to give too much information, but my left breast is really sore whenever it touches anything or moves too much. It came on suddenly yesterday, and the first thing that came to mind is a...
  24. Re: Factors affecting breastmilk quality

    Thank you, everyone, for all the reassuring and helpful info.

    Our daughter's growth is just about average in height, around 30% for head circumference, but in the last 3 months she's dropped off...
  25. Re: Factors affecting breastmilk quality

    Thank you, both. Very encouraging. :D

    I'll give coconut milk a shot ...

    Thanks again!
