    Re: Veggies First??

    We were told that, too, by the nurse at our pediatrician's office, but it never made sense to me; my son was used to breast milk only, which is sweet, so I couldn't see how fruits vs vegetables would...

    Re: Aspartame and breastfeeding???

    I'm not sure. I'd say be careful, just in case. My son is 14 months old and never had aspartame before yesterday, and he broke out immediately upon eating syrup with aspartame in it at someone else's...

    Re: Switching to level 2 nipples?

    We never switched either. I figured my nipple didn't get any faster, so why change the other one lol.

    Re: just had a checkup - discouraged!

    I am no doctor, but that sounds crazy to me (and by the way, your baby weighs more than my 13.5-month-old, if that makes you feel any better, and my pediatrician says he is perfectly healthy). I...

    Poll: Re: Poll: After a year

    I actually pump-weaned around 10 months due to inability to let down with the pump. By that time he was eating solids well and continued to nurse 5-6 times a day. Around 12 months we introduced...

    Re: Will she hate me

    If you and your husband are comfortable with it, that's the main thing. There will always be people who won't support your decisions, but it doesn't make the decisions theirs, know what I mean?...

    Re: Mangos

    I don't know of any reason not to. :shrug We found the mix-it-with-avocado thing very helpful too. I say whatever works! :)

    Re: what kind of cottage cheese?

    We give Thomas the 4% because he still needs the milkfat. He's been eating cottage cheese since he was about 10 months old, and my understanding is that it's not considered the same as plain dairy...

    Re: Should I bring my pump to the hospital?

    I say yes. Due to some unforeseen medical issues, my son wasn't able to nurse for a couple of days, but I pumped and had no problems. If you don't need it, no big deal; if you do need it but don't...
  13. Re: need help ASAP quick its important !!!

    I don't know about what brand, but when we talked to our pediatrician she said to make sure it was lactose-free. I'm not sure why, as we have no family history of allergies, and he has no allergies.
  14. Re: need help ASAP quick its important !!!

    Are these teeth new, as in recently came in? Sometimes when Thomas gets a brand-new tooth, I feel it, but normally I don't feel his teeth when he nurses unless he's not latched correctly.

    And I...

    We use the Nuby with the soft spout--we haven't tried the straw, but this one has worked well for us. :)

    Dang. I have several unused things of tubing for a Purely Yours, and I won't need them, because I don't pump anymore.

    Re: Baby led solids, anyone?

    We started when he was 6 months old, with avocado. He wasn't terribly taken with it, but LOVED it mashed with banana and breast milk. We did some purees (applesauce and prunes), and he loved baby...

    Re: C-Section--Delayed Milk--QUESTION

    I would definitely run it by my OB/midwife/etc. Some of those things may cause contractions, and it sounds as if you don't need that to happen. FWIW, I had a c-section and had no trouble with my milk...

    Re: lump in armpit...please help

    I ended up seeing a breast surgeon for this very thing! It has gotten better, though sometimes I notice it again.
  21. Re: Introducing the bottle ... but which kind?

    We used the Breastflow bottle and Playtex with the drop-in liners (this is what we actually ended up using consistently). As PP said, be sure to use a slow-flow nipple so that he still has to work....

    Re: Stop pumping at work

    I stopped pumping around 10 months not because I wanted to stop, but because I was unable to let down with the pump anymore. We have no trouble nursing nights, weekends, mornings, etc. PP is...
  23. Re: Anyone have diminishing supply after MANY months of pumping at work?

    I had the same problem around 7 months. I took fenugreek and saw an IBCLC, ate oatmeal nonstop, and still couldn't get my pumping production up. For me, it ended up being a problem letting down with...

    Re: How often does your 9-12 m old nurse??

    My son just turned 12 months, and nurses 4-6 times a day as well as eating 3 meals of solids and sometimes 1 snack (he always has access to his sippy cut with water in it too). I noticed a big...

    Re: Hospital wants to give formula

    I was in a similar position when my son was born, and we got other opinions (from other doctors). We did end up giving formula a few times, but it did not affect my or his ability to nurse at all....
