    Thanks for your replies! It's good to know I'm not alone with this. I'm finding it challenging to navigate this whole concept of setting limits. In general, it feels strange to go from acting on an...

    nursing for HOURS in the morning

    My 21 month old has fallen into a pattern over the past couple of months of nursing more or less half-asleep from about 4 am until we get up at 6:30 or so. We co-sleep (at least the second half of...
  3. Re: Breast milk + extra nourishment before bedtime

    I have a toddler who is older (19 mos) and from time to time she seems a little restless before bed (even though I know she's tired). She can ask for a snack now, so that helps me to know what she...

    Re: Transitioning to cows milk

    My daughter is 18 mos old and I was pumping 3x per day until she was about 11 mos old. We introduced cow's milk at 12 mos and I started dropping pumping sessions at around 11 mos because I had a...

    I just found out I need to go on an overnight business trip in January. My baby will be 19 mos old. I have no desire to wean her. Assuming she is still nursing then, and I imagine she will be, should...

    Thanks for all of your replies. This is very helpful. Meg, your perspective is very helpful. I think a big part of my concern is about her sleep. I have been worried about how she can possibly be OK...
  8. Re: wanting to reduce or eliminate toddler night nursing

    Thanks... this is actually very reassuring :) I will try to ride it out.

    Re: Where did my milk go?

    I noticed at around 10 months I felt like I had no milk, too. It was fairly dramatic. I started pumping less (at work) and my breasts felt empty a lot. I thought something was wrong but there was no...

    Re: When do I use frozen milk?

    My understanding is that the main advantage of a chest freezer over a regular fridge-freezer is that chest freezers are not frost free, ie they don't have an auto defrost cycle to melt the ice...

    I am suddenly having moderate nipple pain while breastfeeding my 14 month old. Is this normal and will it go away? Is it more likely to be something going on with my body or is it the way she is...

    Re: When do I use frozen milk?

    Great that you are pumping plenty of milk! I have a couple of thoughts--

    I am not the expert that some of the other mamas here are, and I'm sure others will chime in but I wanted to quickly reassure you that you almost certainly did not completely lose your milk supply...
  16. Re: Pumping post-supplementation question.

    when I was supplementing when my baby was first born, my IBCLC told me to pump for 15 minutes after each supplemented feeding (I was using a hospital-grade pump). And it worked--within a couple of...

    Re: Stopping BFing.

    I just have to chime in on the bra issue, too ;)
    I'm nursing a 14 month old and I probably only wear a nursing bra 1/2 the time. The rest of the time I'm back to my favorite pre-baby bras. These...

    Re: Is my 8-month-old weaning?

    Sounds about right. At that age my daughter was not handling most fruit or even cheerios well (we never tried puffs but I imagine they are similar). She did really well though if I roasted a sweet...
