    Re: One year and counting :)

    Happy birthday Ethan! It seems like just yesterday I was lurking on the pregnant mamas thread ;) How time flies!
  2. Re: Sleep Nursing and nursing for a long time

    I had a quick read through of your other thread, and I would say that if you're still concerned about supply, go ahead and let him nurse for as long as you're able/willing to sit with him. All that...
  3. Re: WE DID IT! 1 year of exclusive breast milk

    I have no advice on pump weaning, but just wanted to say congrats on nursing TWINS for a full year! What an achievement! :D

    Re: Journey till now...

    I agree with mommal - you've done an amazing job! And for myself, around 4.5-5 months was when I finally started to really enjoy breastfeeding too - so hopefully the enjoyable part is in sight for...
  5. Re: 12 month old refusing expressed milk-please help!

    It's not uncommon for toddlers to start refusing breastmilk from a cup or bottle at this age. I think my own DD was around 13 or 14 months when she wouldn't drink it anymore. There's no reason you...

    You're in the right place for support - many of us are actively nursing toddlers! For anyone that tells you she's too old, you can always let them know that you're backed up by several well-respected...

    Re: Working 3rd Shift

    First off, I want to reassure you that it's perfectly normal for your 5-month old to still be waking up at night, and you cannot spoil a baby by 'holding her too much' or by responding to her needs...
  8. Re: Lip Tie/Fast Letdown? Please help me sort this out!

    I'm also really voting for thrush here. In the beginning with my DD, it was a toss up between thrush and lip/tongue ties. I had been told by a couple different doctors that it wasn't thrush, so I...
  9. Re: IUGR baby not gaining - Doc says wean him

    It's not unusual in and of itself for weight gain to slow down. I'm not so sure about height though! Hopefully you can get in to see the pedi and get a second (and hopefully more breastfeeding...
  10. Re: Lip Tie/Fast Letdown? Please help me sort this out!

    From reading your post, it sounds to me like there might be a couple issues going on. You could be right about the fast let down and maybe frustration between letdowns. Have you tried doing breast...
  11. Re: IUGR baby not gaining - Doc says wean him

    I don't really know anything about IUGR, but I fail to see how formula would be more nutritious than breast milk! I have a couple questions though - which growth chart is your doc using? Is it the...

    Re: Thrush/milk supply

    I've never read anything about thrush in and of itself causing low supply - only if you're nursing less due to pain, I would think. Is baby having enough wet and poopy diapers? You can't rely on the...

    Re: Weaning 21-month-old

    I'm glad I was able to help, and that it looks like you might be able to still nurse while taking the meds you need to feel well! Isn't it funny how your nursing expectations change over time? I...

    Re: Weaning 21-month-old

    So sorry you're going through this, mama! I don't have any information to offer about weaning, but I'm wondering if you've contacted infantrisk at all about breastfeeding while taking Topamax? Here's...

    Re: conflicted about night weaning

    I was thinking about your post last night as I was in bed nursing my almost 19 month old. I was remembering how she was still nursing multiple times/night at 15 months, and how much better it is now....
  16. Re: How to transition from bottle to sippy cup

    Has your LO used a sippy for any other drinks, like water? I would try that and see how he likes it - at 15months, my LO could use a sippy with a straw, and she loved it. Then you could maybe try...
  17. Re: Having such a hard time on one side!!

    If things feel good on the left breast, maybe try positioning him the same way while he nursing from the right. Ie., use a pillow for support and have him lying as if he's going to nurse from the...

    Re: Very new mom with engorgement

    Congrats on the new baby! I take it your milk has come in! I remember when mine came in, I felt so engorged that my breasts got in the way of putting my arms down. It did get better with time. In the...

    Re: Help! I've created a monster!

    Sorry, I'm not going to be able to give you any good advice, because my LO was the same way! She really didn't tolerate being put down for naps until she was well over a year. I'm talking, like 14...

    Re: Feeling desperate

    I just want to point out that investing in breastfeeding help NOW, even if you spend a little more, is likely to be waaay cheaper than buying formula for a year! Keep working at it, don't get...

    Awe, Sylvia, that's so sweet! Toddler nursing is such an enjoyable experience, isn't it? I love that my busy LO isn't too busy to come cuddle and nurse :love

    And you're so right, it's such a nice...

    Re: Help! Vasospasm? Thrush?

    Thrush vs. Raynaud's can be tricky, since thrush in and of itself can cause painful vasospasms. Are you having any pain in the right nipple? Being that baby has a yeast infection currently, thrush...

    Has your baby been checked carefully for tongue and lip tie? Posterior tongue ties seem to be missed a lot, and can really cause issues with latch. Here's a good page to look for pics and...
