    Re: Will I want to BF my next baby?

    I can relate to your post so much - I too wonder this same thing. I was so sad when my dd stopped nursing, but now that she is done, I am so happy to be done with it and be able to leave her with...

    Re: Have I Made a Huge Mistake?

    I agree with pp's that breastfeeding did not cause this - my dd stopped nursing at 9 mos. and we still had the separation anxiety issue when she started daycare at 11 mos. I am curious, however, how...

    Re: Going back to work at 10 mos.

    I too was worried about my dd's transition, given the age. I think it went easier than it would have at an earlier age, honestly. To ease the transition, I would just start leaving her with your...

    Re: PMS from Weaning?

    Just anecdotally, I can tell you that I was a wreck while my dd was weaning. I do think it was more than just the sadness at moving on - I think it was hormonal - very similar to crazy pregnancy...

    Re: Going back to work at 10 mos.

    Amber - your situation sounds a lot like mine was. I was going absolutely nuts because my husband was gone for such a long time each day, and since we had recently moved, I didn't have any friends...

    Re: labeling of bottles

    I like the blue multi-purpose tape for labeling bottles - it doesn't make them all sticky like scotch tape does.

    Re: Going back to work at 10 mos.

    I just want to post that I chose to go back to work (at 10mos.) and I am glad I did - it was a really healthy decision for me and my daughter seems to be doing well as well. I almost wish I had gone...

    Re: Cries to eat, falls asleep!

    According to the Happiest Baby on the Block, a newborn's "fussy times" peak at 6 weeks, so what you might be seeing is the worst of it.
    So, if you don't have 2-4 hours of unconsolable screaming to...

    Re: Regretting weaning

    Hello ladies,
    Thanks for your thoughts - I appreciate them. I have come to terms with the weaning now, and I think it has been a real learning experience for me.
    My dd did get sick a week ago,...

    Re: % of Working Moms who BF 1 year?

    I just read in BabyTalk magazine that 90% of working moms stop breastfeeding by 6 mos., so the percentage that make it to a year has to be really low.

    Regretting weaning

    This will probably be my last post (until next bb) - my dd hasn't latched at all in almost 2 weeks, and I am pumping next to nothing for her, so I guess she is just about weaned. She is 9 mos. old...
  12. Re: Tips for getting baby to take formula?

    When my dd had a nursing strike I pumped for her, but couldn't pump enough, so I gave her some formula (probably not the best decision in hindsight). But, she originally didn't like it and the way I...
  13. Re: Baby looks to be in pain sometimes? HELP!

    My dd did this at this age. I found that bf while walking around and singing helped calm her down and then she would fall asleep. I think with my dd it might have been an overtired thing too. I...

    Re: Do you wear a bra to bed?

    I have always worn a bra to bed - at first because of the leaking. I've tried sleeping in a glamourmom tank, but I would wake up with really sore areas of my breasts - they really just didn't...
  15. Re: Can she return to nursing after a week break?

    I took my dd to Vegas with my dh and I and we had a lot of fun!!! We have also taken her on long visits to family and she does great there too. You won't have the same freedom as if she doesn't go,...
  16. Re: I'm getting extremely frustrated

    eyeagnes,
    I'm sorry I'm not a been there, done that'er, but I can sympathize. My dd battles me at sleep time (today for nap, I actually had to "catch" her taking off for the edge of the bed, coax...

    Re: What is going on with my daughter?

    Hmmm. . . not necessarily a credible source, but my dentist told me that my bm might taste different after a root canal because of me being stressed out during it.
    I'm sorry you have so much stress...
  18. Re: What helped you most in the early weeks?

    I like the idea of water, and I might even throw in a few snacks - man, was I hungry in those first weeks, and my dd wouldn't let me out of the chair! Also, a good DVD is nice - when I was tired of...
  19. Re: Will I ever NOT have to use Nipple Shield??

    My dd is 8 mos. and we still use the shields 100% of the time - I too wanted her off at an earlier age but after a ton of soreness that just would not go away, I have given up trying and think we...

    Re: 10 month old - nursing strike

    I just dealt with a nursing strike with my 8 mos. old dd - if you look back a few days, you will find the thread. She is back to the breast, though, thank goodness!
    My dd is a little different...

    Re: Every 2 hours???

    It will get better soon! My dd did that at that age - cosleeping saved us! Also, try to offer to feed more during the day (even if your butt is glued to the couch and you don't get anything done). ...

    Re: Nursing Strike

    srshannon - My dd starts stirring and I just sit up and feed her. During the night it takes her a couple minutes to wake all the way up, she is so sleep drunk. So, I have that time to get her up. ...

    I flew when my daughter had an ear infection at 7 mos. - I had a memorial service for a close relative to attend and there was just no option but to go. I originally thought it was a cold but took...
