  1. Re: Self-weaning at 11 months, now trying to EP until--??

    Happily I am now making just enough milk to get by from day to day, with six or seven sessions. Thanks again for your encouragement!
  2. Re: Self-weaning at 11 months, now trying to EP until--??

    Tried a bath this morning--fun, but not successful in this respect. I think we need to take a day off trying, she bit me again pretty hard the one time she approached me when I offered. This is...
  3. Re: Self-weaning at 11 months, now trying to EP until--??

    Hi, thanks so much for your response. I have been offering a few times throughout the day, very casually, and especially when she is nodding off before naps/bed. Skin to skin cuddles before bed too....
  4. Re: Self-weaning at 11 months, now trying to EP until--??

    PS I am aiming for 8 sessions a day. I will pump in the middle of the night for a few days if need be. I am not ready for her to be done with breastmilk, even if she has decided she is done with...
  5. Self-weaning at 11 months, now trying to EP until--??

    It seems my 11-month-old self-weaned, abruptly but happily, five days ago. We've been through many nursing strikes where dream feeds saved us, but it hasn't worked this time. She just silently arches...
  6. Re: What does pumping routine look like at 11 months?

    Thanks so much. I wouldnt' have thought so many sessions were necessary, so that is good to know. Looking back over the past couple months, the truth is that I may have been inadvertently encouraging...
  7. What does pumping routine look like at 11 months?

    My 11-month-old has started refusing to nurse, even to latch in her sleep, since yesterday. We had been going on 2-3 months of pretty blissful nursing (no bottles, I stay home) after a long rough...
  8. Re: Baby latches for 20 seconds,kicks and thrashes

    Well done! So glad to hear.

    Re: OS finally gone!!!

    Well done! That was exactly the time it finally seemed to go away for me (with a few random flare-ups here and there). Of course then I freaked out that my supply was dropping, so good job being...
  10. Re: aYUDA!! Quieren que le quite la teta a mi beba!

    Hmm, a mí me haría enojada y confundida también. No soy experta para nada, pero sí que hay pedíatras (aunque no estén dónde tú, por desgracia) que afirman que la lactancia prolongada está bien, y que...
  11. Re: 7-mo has never liked nursing: can anyone relate?

    Update...pretty much two days after I wrote that last post, out of the blue baby has been contentedly nursing every three hours, while fully awake, and sleeping 6+ hour stretches at night without...

    Re: Distractible baby

    Very similar experience here with having oversupply, then having days where I feared my supply was dropping due to extreme distractibility (no older siblings, just...ANYthing around her was more...

    Re: Reverse cycling?

    Oh my, eagerly awaiting a response to this...your son sounds exactly like my daughter, only she is #1, distracted by anything and everything rather than a sibling, and hates nursing in the dark. I...
  14. Re: 7-mo has never liked nursing: can anyone relate?

    You know, I shouldn't complain, because really unless she's tired AND ravenous my baby is pretty distractible with things like you mentioned---music, change of scenery, etc. In fact I think her...
  15. Re: 7-mo has never liked nursing: can anyone relate?

    Oh man, thanks so much for your post. I recognize my baby in a lot of what you wrote, including the mystifying 4-6-month side-lying only phase! Now she won't do that at all--she thinks I'm trying to...
  16. Re: Baby latches for 20 seconds,kicks and thrashes

    Hm, okay. How many wet diapers in a 24 hour period? Is her weight gain good? I have only been at this for seven months myself so I'm hoping someone more experienced comes in to help, but I've learned...
  17. 7-mo has never liked nursing: can anyone relate?

    So objectively breastfeeding has gone very well for both of us: baby has been more than amply nourished (6 lbs 12 oz at birth, 18+ lbs by 6 months!) and I have never had any pain or infection issues...
  18. Re: Baby latches for 20 seconds,kicks and thrashes

    Sounds to me like oversupply or overactive letdown, not too little milk, if you say you can hear her gulping... Is she pulling off crying after letdown (if you can feel/tell when that happens)? Are...
  19. Re: over a month of on-and-off nursing strike(s)

    Ugh, I kept meaning to come back and update and look where the time has gone...update below.

    squirmama, thanks for the suggestion. I saw three different IBCLCs in the first week and none of them...
  20. over a month of on-and-off nursing strike(s)

    I'm really sorry for the length but am wondering if anyone can relate, or help me to stick it out for one more day, or encourage me about moving onto pumping exclusively. I know it will be a royal...

    Re: How long does your baby nurse for?

    Sounds fine to me. I had oversupply the first three months and when a feeding went well, five minutes of gulping could very well be all she needed for a couple of hours. Of course she had terrible...

    Re: 4.5 Month Old Frustrated at the Breast?

    Thanks for the bouncing trick, Elisa. I will have to try that with mine (also 4.5-month-old, fussy, reluctant nurser)! I sure hope this doesn't last that long. It's very frustrating for many reasons,...
  23. Re: 4 month old only eats while laying in bed...

    I too have a four-month-old who is extremely particular about positioning right now, and has been for about a month. You'd think I am trying to poison her if I dare offer the breast sitting up---same...
  24. Re: Oversupply and sleeping through the night

    Btw in the meantime if he's really worked up and seems just to want to suck, try offering your clean pinky finger, nail facing down. I use it all the time to calm my daughter during fussy feedings.
  25. Re: Oversupply and sleeping through the night

    I don't think 3-3.5 hours is frequent enough. For oversupply it is almost always best to be feeding frequent, small "meals," both for baby's sake and yours--think more like every 2 hours at least. Or...
