  1. Re: Wanting to nurse more often after they turn one?

    My son has nursed what seems, nonstop since turning 1! He is now 15 months, and I would definitely say he nurses more than he did before. He already has his molars, so maybe it's eye teeth. I'm...

    Re: Am I Losing My Milk?!?

    Thanks so much for your words of encouragement! This evening I feel like my milk is starting to increase. You are probably right . . . the combination of having no fluids for MY body and stressing...

    Am I Losing My Milk?!?

    :cry

    I am not sure if I am overreacting, or if my supply is drying up! I had the stomach flu (and it was AWFUL!) Sunday evening. I ate lunch on Sunday and then ate only a few bites of what I...

    Re: avent bottle

    We started at 5 weeks with an Avent nipple and used the 1 flow with no problems. We switched to the 2 after only about a month, and that is what we stuck with. It might be the nipple, and you might...

    Re: my baby does not have cradle cap

    My lo didn't get it until he was about 2 months old . . . and then he only had it in two spots. It looked like a buildup of yellow skin. You could scrap it off with your fingernail . . . it wasn't...

    Starting Cow's Milk

    For those of you that give your kiddos cow's milk, how exactly did you go about starting, and when? My little one will be a year, and I have not yet given him milk, but will. How much do you give...

    Re: Using Flax - need some advice

    I don't use flaxseed oil, but we do use ground flaxseed. It has a nutty taste, and my son loves it in cereal, yogurt, etc. I give him about 1/4 - 1/2 tsp a day. It is rich in good fat and fiber. ...

    Re: What do you do at the sitter's?

    I wish I had a LLL group, too!! Thanks for your input, and nice to hear from someone in Nebraska! You are probably clear on the other end, but it seems closer when you're from the same state. I...

    Re: What do you do at the sitter's?

    Nope . . . the nearest LLL is over 100 miles from us AND it's in another time zone, so that makes it nearly impossible. So that isn't really an option, even though it would be a perfect one! :(

    What do you do at the sitter's?

    I'm ordering some books about extended breastfeeding, which will perhaps answer my question, but I wanted some ideas now to put my mind at rest. :D

    I don't have any additional info about the feeding, because my ds ate quite a bit - and there was no mistaking the cues! But, he was awake what seemed like ALL day. He slept long stretches at...

    How old is your lo? When I started my ds at the sitter he was 15 weeks. I was pumping 20 ounces a day and sending it all, and she was feeding him 12 ounces. I had no idea how much to give him. ...

    Hello! Congrats to your new little one - what an exciting (albeit tiring) time!

    Re: Freezer stash

    I pump 3 days a week at work, and send the milk the next day to the sitter. If I pump extra on the weekend, or he has a bag he hasn't used at the sitter, I throw that in the freezer.
