  1. Re: Weaning after super extended nursing

    I stopped nursing my 3 year old daughter last August and my breasts are still big. I was hoping that I would dry up and they would shrink. I actually have pain in my left breast on and off and...

    Re: it might be over..

    My DD weaned at 3 as well. It was more my choice than hers but she was plenty ready for the little nudge I gave her. I don't judge anyone for going later but really, 3 is a wonderful age to stop. ...

    Re: HELP BLS'ers! She choked!

    Please do not give apples to babies with no teeth. Dangerous. And a general rule of thumb, I believe, is to make sure that the pieces of food are the size of half of your pinkie nail.

    Re: Post-weaning periods

    It's so strange, isn't it? I feel like I can't get any answers from any doctors so I just have to keep asking around. I hope this calms down soon because I don't know how much more I can take!

    Post-weaning periods

    Hi all. Anyone else have absolutely cuh-razy periods after weaning? We weaned in August after 3 years and every time AF arrives, she arrives with a crash! Awful, crazy-feeling PMS, bad cramps,...
  6. Re: About to give up, please help my baby latch!

    I know this is not specific help so I apologize but I will tell you something my cousin told me - which I didn't believe, btw, until it happened with MY db - but some babies don't really "get" BFing...

    Cramping

    Just a question for people who weaned after 3 or so years: My daughter stopped BFing after 3 years at the beginning of August. My periods since then have been quite dramatic. I usually have PMS...

    Re: My darling daughter has weaned

    I just weaned my 3 year old daughter as well! It's been 2.5 weeks and although I feel bad physically, I feel very accomplished. We tried 2 other times before and it wasn't the right time so we went...

    Re: Day 3 of no BFing to sleep

    Thank you for the support! It's been 2 weeks exactly. I still feel full and somewhat crabby/weepy but overall, it's not too bad.

    I haven't felt less pain/weakness in my muscles yet. I'm still...
  10. Re: pediatrician says don't nurse earlier than 2 hours?

    Terrible advice. How awful. I'm sorry your doctor is so ignorant but guess what...SO MANY OF THEM ARE! No one seems to understand BFing. Our pediatrician AND my ob gyn admitted that they knew...

    Re: Day 3 of no BFing to sleep

    Thanks, Karen. It's been a full week so far and I'm not feeling as full but I'm in a terrible mood. It does feel like hormones crashing. I try my best to be pleasant but I want to scream at people...

    Day 3 of no BFing to sleep

    Hi all. I wrote an earlier post about trying to wean my 3 year old for the 3rd time. Fingers crossed, it's not going too badly. I am really hoping it will take this time because I'm having...
  13. Re: 3 week old and lots of BF issues for first time mom

    Congratulations on your baby! I'm sorry you're having a hard time BFing and it sounds like your situation was a lot like mine. I have a big chest and my baby was extra small so I had to hold part...
  14. Re: Trying my best to wean for the 3rd time...

    We do a version of that. My husband frequently works late but when he's home, he puts her to sleep. But I end up nursing her to sleep about 4-5 times a week. She and I have been talking about...
  15. Re: Trying my best to wean for the 3rd time...

    Thanks for your responses. Since we only BF once a day, I'm not sure how to do gradual weaning. We've been gradually weaning for the last 1.5 years since it took us such a long time to get down to...
  16. Trying my best to wean for the 3rd time...

    Sigh...(I actually sighed out loud trying to think about how to say this)...but I think we're weaning and it's all my idea. I'm a big believer in child-led weaning and had always reacted with horror...

    Re: So, SO disappointed with LLL.

    You and I basically said the same thing but you said it better. Let's not worry about LLL's reputation. Let's turn our attention to a baby who won't feed well.

    OP, if you can stand us anymore,...

    Re: So, SO disappointed with LLL.

    A person who has just given birth is different emotionally and hormonally than other people and is especially prone to frustration and anger/fear when it seems that her baby is not getting enough...
  19. Re: Does this sound like a growth spurt/cluster feeding

    Okay, that wasn't a helpful reply - sorry. To expand on my last post: yes, sometimes patterns change during growth spurts. You may find your LO sleeping more. And then at the next growth spurt,...
  20. Re: Does this sound like a growth spurt/cluster feeding

    There is a growth spurt at 6 weeks - a big one. Just feed on demand and watch your LO grow!

    Ooof. I don't like this answer (no offense, poster - you may say what you like, of course).

    To the OP: I had a very similar experience to yours: inaccurate and surly support from actual LLL...

    Congratulations on your new baby! I understand where you are coming from. My LO was in the NICU for 10 days and has a physical problem that gives her a low appetite so she had to have an NG tube...

    Re: Finally, wean at 34 months.

    We're at 34 months now and BFing once a day, every few days. I only offer it at bedtime if she's beyond tired and freaking out. But I sense she is forgetting to even ask for it most days.

  24. Re: 2.5 weeks, still won't maintain latch

    My daughter had a weak suck and that can happen. She actually has low muscle tone. That may not be the problem with your LO but it is possible.

    A cousin wisely told me once that it actually...
  25. Re: Failed at BFing my first child, but desperate to succeed with second.

    Hi there. Boy, do I know what you're talking about! It took me FIVE weeks to get BFing down. I asked for help in the NICU, where my daughter was for 10 days, and no one would help. Our ped...
