    Re: Baby Prefers to Nurse At Home

    This was totally my daughter and I (now 20 months old) until she was about 7 or 8 months old, even 9 months old! She would only nurse lying down.

    The only thing that I can suggest is to never...

    Re: Low magnesium

    I take blackstrap molasses as a magnesium/calcium/iron supplement, and it has always worked well for me. I think the calcium/magnesium ratio is ideal for best absorption, too. Once you get used to...
  3. Re: Feelings about weaning from nursing to sleep night time

    Thanks everyone. Things are going better, I've accepted that me helping get her to sleep is faster, and it's just as fast if I just sit on the end of her bed or if I nursed her to sleep. As long as...
  4. Feelings about weaning from nursing to sleep night time

    My daughter is 19 months old, and for the most part my husband has put her to bed for months. Until we went on a family vacation for 1 week where I nursed her to sleep each night. She was out like a...

    ...your toddler bursts into song about "boobies" and "babies" (her word for nursing most of the time).

    "Baby all done, booby all donnnne, Babies outside, boobies outsiiiiide..." Repeat for about...
  6. Re: Long-winded new mom seeks guidance and help (sorry)

    I just wanted to chime in that I had sore nipples the first few weeks too, and my daughter was gaining weight fine, etc. I realize that your baby needs to gain weight back as you said, so it's not...

    Re: Can I really do this?

    I went through exactly what you are discussing with my first child. I still regret giving up, but I also had post natal depression (severe).

    I hope relactation works for you! Either way, this is...

    Re: Toddler feeding on demand?

    If your daughter is feeding on demand, I would say it's very unlikely that nursing is causing her to be thin. Maybe she's just naturally thin? My 17 month old eats very much like you describe....

    This is a great support group on Yahoo, for moms overcoming issues like yours. I went there and found so much support. http://www.mobimotherhood.org/mobi-support-group.html I attempted relactation...
  10. Re: Still up 4+ times a night to feed.....

    I would say it absolutely depends on your baby. Is it realistic for a baby who takes a pacifier and sleeps in a crib all night? Possibly and possibly not. For a baby who sleeps next to Mom and nurses...

    Re: How fatty is your milk?

    I think what you are saying makes a lot of sense...your son still prefers your milk and toddlers need a lot of fat, especially active ones...so it makes sense your body is upping the fat content....
  12. Re: Zinc deficiency and breastfeeding

    This is such an interesting study...I had no idea that zinc was important for helping cells to die at the right time. Good motivation to stay properly nourished!

    Re: Don't touch me!

    This is a totally normal feeling! I have a 3 year old and 16 month old and it seems like between them and my husband someone always wants my body or my attention. The only way I get past it is to...

    Re: plugged duct

    I know, it stinks to be someone who gets plugs all the time. Same here, I skip the bra sometimes because I am just so sick of the whole bra situation.

    Re: plugged duct

    Thanks for responding, the plugs seem like they are always there but no mastitis as of right now. I've had that twice so I would definitely know if I were sick. It did look pretty red but it's not...

    plugged duct

    I have multiple plugged ducts under my breast from wearing an underwire bra for a few days (I won't make that mistake again), and I can't seem to get rid of them. I feel like it's getting worse, is...

    Re: Playing with nipples

    My daughter is the same way. And I'm sure that it's the milk flow thing. I don't think it's quite as fast as it used to be, and by that I mean a garden hose, so it's probably average but she started...

    Re: conflicted about night weaning

    Night weaning will likely do nothing in terms of having him eat solids. And honestly, my daughter was not iron deficient at her last checkup, in spite of the fact that she really didn't eat any food...
  19. Re: 2.5 year old wanting to nurse ALL THE TIME?

    and this increase in nursing could be a way for your son to confirm that he is still loved if he does something he's not supposed to, like color all over the brand new furniture with markers (like my...
  20. Re: 2.5 year old wanting to nurse ALL THE TIME?

    My friend and I were just talking about this the other night over dinner...that with your first child, they turn 1 year and you think they are huge and so grown up. Then with your second child and so...
  21. Re: 2.5 year old wanting to nurse ALL THE TIME?

    I agree, it seems like weaning/nursing the whole experience can be very circular at times, definitely not a gradual linear process as I expected.

    And it is totally normal for a 2.5 year old to be...

    Re: conflicted about night weaning

    You are all so nice and helpful...I love these forums because I don't even know a person who nursed a toddler. Ever. And I know a lot of people. Let alone nursed a toddler all night long...
  23. Re: looking for the perfect breastfeeding relationship

    This really jumped out at me. It sounds like you still want the connection with her that nursing provides but you don't want to nurse at night? Once a day at this age just might not be realistic,...
  24. Re: looking for the perfect breastfeeding relationship

    Your post sounds so much like my post from about a month ago.

    We started having my husband put my 16 month old to bed, and she accepted it without tears. We also gave her a pillow, previously she...

    Re: 3 days old, few questions.

    Just wanted to say (as a former oversupply mom...that lasted like 6+ months), that even if your baby was drinking loads of less fatty milk, it could still be plenty of calories. It sure was for my...
