    Re: Question about Extended BF

    My two year old has had water from a sippy cup from about one year of age. Before that, she didn't want anything but breastmilk - her solids, however, did have water added to them. She only used a...

    Re: Breastfeed first, even after age 1?

    You probably weren't asking me, but I've never offered my two year old daughter cows' milk as a drink except for the occasional 'fluffy' in town when I'm out for coffee. After she turned one though,...

    Re: Rice cereal Ok before 6 months old??

    That's correct...babies' intestines mature somewhere between four and six months. It's because internal readiness doesn't correspond to external signs of readiness that six months is recommended -...

    Re: Breastfeed first, even after age 1?

    After my daughter was 12 months, I just followed her lead on whether she wants solids or breastmilk first. She's two and still has a breastfeed first thing in the morning - I need time to wake up...
  5. Re: Night weaning affect length of bf'ing?

    I haven't used the method you describe, but my daughter was night-weaned from a young age (<12 months). She's still having two feeds a day at 25 months.

    Re: 3 yr old nursing frequently

    Yes! It is perfectly ok! :) My two year old is capable of understanding things like 'boobie soon' or 'boobie later', so I'm sure your three year old can ;)

    I would go as far as to say I think...

    Re: Rice cereal Ok before 6 months old??

    Oh, absolutely! My daughter is two, and never had commercial rice cereal. She began on banana, then avocado, slowly followed by other fruits and homemade vegetable purees. When I did start her on...

    Re: Rice cereal Ok before 6 months old??

    paint-the-moon has given you some excellent advice and links, which I just wanted to second, really. You see a lot of infant food promoted as being suitable from 4-6 months. In short, this is because...

    Re: Okay, now I really feel discouraged...

    Is it possible that she has silent reflux? I wonder too, if she's getting enough sleep. It helped me to watch a video showing tired signs in infants, because I was making the mistake of trying to...

    Re: 3 yr old nursing frequently

    Ouch...it's perfectly ok to place limits on breastfeeding with a child of this age without weaning. I really feel for you! My two year old has cut herself down to two feeds a day, over time - I found...
