  2. Setting limits on nursing for a 13-month old

    My DS has always nursed on demand. I work, so during the day he gets milk in a sippy cup, but when I'm home he nurses whenever he wants. He's 13 months, eats solids really well and has no problem...
  3. Re: Going away for 2 nights, when/how to pump?

    Are you nursing at night also, or just during the day? I would think that you could increase the number of feedings, rather than the total oz at each feeding. Your feeding pattern sounds like mine,...

    Re: Return to work - not keeping up with baby

    Tracie, 11 hours (but I nurse about an hour before I leave, since he's always hungry when he wakes up at 6).

    Re: Return to work - not keeping up with baby

    Yeah, it's an 8-hour day + commuting. I feed him at 6am and again when I get home at 6pm. In between he's been taking 3 bottles (bottle every 3 hours). Yesterday his average bottle was 5 oz! DH...

    Re: Best positions as baby gets bigger?

    I am also starting to need new BF positions. My 4-month old started to get really fussy in our usual cross-cradle position on the Brest Friend (like screaming at my boob, screaming while burping)....
