    Re: Weaning 2 month old

    Hi, I can't comment on how to wean, but I will say that at that age I had oversupply and was with my baby 24/7, and nevertheless my baby wanted to nurse all.the.time. Wanting to nurse every hour is...
  2. Re: breastfeeding in a society that sexualized breasts

    I understand your feeling about not wanting your breasts touched; I feel the same way since I have been nursing (almost 3 yr), but it has gotten a lot better over time. I think in my case now it is...

    Re: forceful let down

    you can unlatch the baby when letdown is coming, and let the milk squirt into a towel (or a bowl, cloth diaper, etc.). After a month or two baby will get better at handling the fast let down and...

    Re: Air dry vs lanolin

    To keep a good latch I used to have to keep making sure baby was tummy to tummy with me, otherwise she seemed to swivel around and the latch would get worse.
  5. Re: Foremilk/Hindmilk Imbalance Help.

    one other thing - even after my baby has finished nursing I can always squeeze out more milk - the breast never completely empties. But when we talk about emptying the breast it means that the breast...
  6. Re: Foremilk/Hindmilk Imbalance Help.

    I can only speak from my own experience. My breasts were hard, full of milk, and did not ever get soft. Milk sprayed everywhere when I nursed, and baby choked on the letdown. She was gassy and fussy...
  7. Re: Cow's Milk: Necessary or Optional?

    Re: Air dry vs lanolin

    I found in those early days my nipples were just so sensitive to everything! Definitely had to wear a bra because couldn't stand nipples accidentally rubbing on anything (like the air, ha ha). I...
  9. Re: Cow's Milk: Necessary or Optional?

    My DD didn't have any drinks other than breastmilk until she was about 15 or 16 mo. Then she started having some water. She didn't like cow's milk until about 2 yo but now (2.5) she loves it....
  10. Re: Outing with breast milk bottle?

    This doesn't answer your question because I've never taken a breastmilk bottle anywhere, but can't you take a pillow with you in public? Do you mean a regular pillow or a special breastfeeding...

    Re: Human Pacifier

    :ita with everything mommal said. My baby never went to daycare but at 4 months she was nursing at least every hour. I carried her in the Ergo or sling all the time, and she was entertained by...
  12. Re: Nursing to Sleep and Dental Care

    fwiw, I just took my daughter to the dentist. she is almost three. I brush her teeth before bed, then she nurses at night, several times. I did not tell dentist I am breastfeeding still. Dentist's...
  13. Re: How many times for a 1 yr old

    Will just chime in along with Meg that being the mom of a nursing toddler is a lovely lovely experience. My daughter still nursed a lot from 1 to 2, but then I never tried to reduce the nursing...
  14. Re: What happens if you don't night wean?

    Hi there, sounds like there is hope for me then. thanks ladies. Yes we are leaving my parents house this week….but will still be "travelling" for the next month.
  15. What happens if you don't night wean?

    Hi ladies,

    I'm wondering how it goes if you just don't enforce night-weaning with your toddler. Do they eventually stop nursing at night on their own?

    My daughter will be three in october. We...

    Re: Disagreement w husband re:BLW

    I usually let my daughter fool around with food whenever I was eating, if she was awake, from about 7 mo. It kept her busy and participating in what I was doing, and allowed me to eat in peace (kind...

    Re: Disagreement w husband re:BLW

    [I think watching her "struggle" is also a challenge.
    I just hate being a nag & I feel like there are only so many times I can say "let her try it herself" before I'm slipping into that...

    Re: Disagreement w husband re:BLW

    Their motor control improves quickly with blw and then it is not so messy. Of course we don't have carpets so clean-up is easy at our house, but long before age 2 we had lost the bibs and didn't need...

    Re: Mastitis?

    yes a lot of us have had mastitis. What you are describing sounds exactly like what I had, including longer shifts and busier than usual; red mark on breast, chills and fever, ill and breast pain....
  20. Re: conflicted about my attachment to my baby

    Your feelings sound completely normal to me.

    My baby never really took a bottle and I also felt kind of horrified at the idea of her drinking from a bottle so we didn't try hard. I never left her...
  21. Re: How often does your 2-3 year old nurse?

    My DD is also 2.5 yo and nurses almost exactly the same frequency as yours (6-7 times during day and maybe 2-4 at night), unless she is sick or we are on an airplane, in which case it is much more...

    Re: How do I do this?

    I would work on nursing lying down, so you don't have to wake up so much. For us, nursing positions have changed a lot as my daughter grew, but night nursing did not start to decrease until about 2...

    Well, I can offer my experience of making the choice not to go.

    I had a really exciting opportunity (and somewhat of a commitment) to visit one of my students in the field when my daughter was 20...

    Re: solid starting q's

    I really liked the book "baby-led weaning" about introducing solids as chunks baby can gnaw-on, rather than purees. Mine continued to bf many times a day, probably once per hr? at 6-12 mo, and she...
