  1. Re: Need some reassurance re: dwindling supply

    Thanks for all of your replies. I was feeling somewhat better, and then I read on another thread how someone's toddler's weight gain plummeted when their milk dried up during pregnancy. The toddler...
  2. Re: Need some reassurance re: dwindling supply

    I just nursed her down to sleep and she really barely swallowed at all. I know mamas often down feel letdowns and have soft breasts all of the time, but I can hear when she swallows and she's...
  3. Re: Need some reassurance re: dwindling supply

    Thanks for your reply. I guess part of my concern is that she doesn't really eat a ton of solids. It could just be because there's always been plenty of milk, but I always offer solids first, then...
  4. Need some reassurance re: dwindling supply

    I haven't posted here in a long time, but my daughter is about 14.5 months old now and still nurses 6-7 times a day. I love our nursing relationship and hope it continues as long as she wants. ...

    Re: Complicated situation - please help!

    Thanks for your thoughts, alphawoman. My preference is definitely for her to nurse longer, so I've considered exactly what you're suggesting. I'm going to need to reevaluate and make a decision...

    Re: Complicated situation - please help!

    It's been a bit of a stressful day, in terms of my supply reducing. It's taken her longer to get to letdown and when it finally comes, her active swallowing is over so quickly. I'm feeling worried...

    Re: Complicated situation - please help!

    Thanks for the reassurance on her diet.

    I'm not sure why her doc didn't test her iron. He wasn't overly concerned about her growth, but did say that if she continues dropping percentiles (again,...

    Re: Complicated situation - please help!

    Finally, I offer her a straw cup with water with all solids. She doesn't drink much - less than an ounce, for sure.

    Also soft cooked green beans and sweet peas. Toss these with butter to add some fat.

    Re: Complicated situation - please help!

    Sorry - forgot about the other question. She routinely is offered scrambled eggs, ground turkey, smashed avocado on whole wheat toast, whole fat yogurt (which she often will refuse or only take on a...

    Re: Complicated situation - please help!

    Thanks mommal!

    No, her iron has never been tested. Do you see a reason why we should? Her doc has never mentioned it, even knowing how little she eats.

    Re: Complicated situation - please help!

    Another question - should I stay on Dom (keep my supply good) until she naturally takes more solids - and tolerates them better with less constipation? Or is it a matter of making her hungrier so...

    Re: Complicated situation - please help!

    When I said "sometimes - gradually switching over", I meant I'm gradually switching from nursing first to solids first. We still nurse as often as before.

    Complicated situation - please help!

    My daughter just turned one and, though we began solids around month 7, she has very little interest. I recently (last week) started offering solids first, then nursing (some of the time - gradually...

    Re: Decreased BM and solids intake?

    I should add her wet diapers are ok, maybe a little drier than usual, but still 5-6 per day with a really heavy one overnight. Her poopy diapers are sort of like playdough and she does strain a bit...

    Decreased BM and solids intake?

    My daughter will be 1 next week and the past several days has decreased her nursing and solids intake. She's never been a demanding nursling and I've always proactively offered nursing to her. ...
  17. Re: Dropping overnight feedings, but not nursing more during

    Bump!

    Should this be worrying me? She's still almost completely refusing those three awake daytime feedings, but not picking up extra calories anywhere else...
  18. Re: Dropping overnight feedings, but not nursing more during

    Now we're having the opposite problem. She's back to her normal 3ish wakings at night to nurse, but now she's all but refusing three of her daytime feedings. Our usual routine has been:

    Nurse at...
  19. Re: How to transition from "food before 1 is just for fun"?

    Thanks for your reply! When I said I was done orchestrating her nursings, I meant I want to be done with that at one. And move to a more child-led, on demand nursings. (What I wish we could have...
  20. Dropping overnight feedings, but not nursing more during day

    I posted yesterday in the toddler forum about some transition questions I have about how to go from food before one is for fun to life after one...

    And I have a somewhat related question today. My...
  21. Re: How to transition from "food before 1 is just for fun"?

    Thanks. We started today with breakfast (yogurt and tiny bites of toast with a straw cup of water) at the table with the rest of the family. She ate very little (like one bite of yogurt and one sip...
  22. Re: How to transition from "food before 1 is just for fun"?

    Should also add that many of those nursing sessions are very short, or distracted or both!
  23. How to transition from "food before 1 is just for fun"?

    My daughter will be 10 months old on Sunday and I'm starting to think ahead to when she turns one (sniff, sniff!). I know food before one is just for fun, but how do you transition after the first...
  24. Re: When to start antibiotics for mastitis?

    Thanks Meg. I'm feeling much better this evening. I can still feel a small plug, but it's hardly painful at all and I'm able to hand express thickened milk out each time after she nurses. I've also...
  25. Re: When to start antibiotics for mastitis?

    Also, those two times when it happened right when others were sick - I never felt a plug. Just woke up overnight with severe pain and redness and had a fever and aches by the next day.
