    Re: How do I drop a session?

    :ita Your ds is probably very attached to this nursing session and is unlikely to give it up happily. He has been away from you all day and wants to reconnect.

    What about this nursing session...

    Re: Solids and self Weaning...Help!!

    That sounds to me like a lot more solid foods than a nine month old typically needs. What are some typical meals/snacks your baby is eating? How much food is it? Breastmilk is still supposed to be...

    Re: Tell me weaning hasn't started

    :ita My son has also gradually decreased how much he nurses over time. At the age of four, he is nursing once or twice a day max, usually at nap or bedtime.

    This is how weaning is supposed to be....

    Re: DH want me to wean...

    I was breastfed until I was 2 and I don't remember nursing, nor did I turn out socially "wierd"...at least I don't think!:lol

    What I do remember is having a very close, trusting relationship with...
  5. Poll: Re: Are outside influences encouraging you to wean?

    (((HUGS))) That's really a shame. Did you know that LLL has a legal department? Maybe they could help.
  6. Poll: Re: Are outside influences encouraging you to wean?

    I voted NO.

    Nobody says anything to me anymore, because they know I don't care. I'll keep nursing my kids until they are ready to wean...which probably means that I'll be nursing 3 come September...

    Re: Sigh...

    Awe:hug,

    I understand where you are coming from. I have been there. I think you might make it a bit easier on yourself if you don't look at nursing as an all-or-nothing thing. At this age, you...
  8. Re: Can you please show me what your nursing "schedule" looks like for the day?

    Schedule, what schedule?:lol At 12 months, my babies were still nursing on demand.

    The schedule you describe is closer to how I nurse my 2 year old...but we still don't have a schedule. If she...

    Re: Almost 2yrs, cycles have not returned.

    Sounds pretty normal to me. With baby number one, my periods returned at nine months, although very irregularly, and I became pg when ds was 14 months. With number two, my cycles didn't return until...

    Re: Side effects from Reglan??

    I've never taken Reglan, but I have a good friend who has. She said that it made her feel very tired and depressed. It also only helped her supply temporarily, and once she stopped taking it, her...

    Re: Milk Supply Varies

    I've heard of a lot of pumps, but never this one. Is it a double electric? Can you change the speed and suction levels? If it's not a high quality pump from a reputable company, that could be your...

    Re: It is true? HV says.....

    This sounds doubtful to me. Breastfeeding, even if we're only talking about nutrition, is about a whole lot more than calcium.

    Re: Child-led Night Weaning?

    My son just night-weaned himself recently, and he is almost 4. It does happen, but I doubt most 16 month olds would night wean themselves.

    OTOH, my experience may be a little different than...

    No real advice, but I just wanted to say that my son is almost 4 years old and just started sleeping through the night, so no, not every other child on the planet is doing it.

    I tried night...

    Something else occurred to me that you might want to think about.

    You are going to need to be able to express your milk somehow when you are on your trip. If you are unable to remove milk from...

    Re: not sure what else to do

    Isn't there any way you could bring your baby with you? Breastfed babies are really portable, especially if you use a sling.:) I can fit everything I need for a weekend with a little baby in my...
  19. Re: Has anyone ever weaned half a tandem pair?

    This was a big thing for us, too. My dh, bless his heart, is from a family that employed the bottle-in-the-crib method of parenting, so this whole extended nursing thing is pretty foreign to him. He...

    I actually find my oversupply is easier to manage when I'm tandeming. I was always making enough milk to nurse two anyway:lol.
