    Re: Stop pumping at work?

    I stopped pumping when my DS was 10 1/2 months old. I just couldn't do it anymore. I absolutely dreaded pumping. I was pumping less-would pump for 20 minutes and only get about 3 oz. I was pumping...

    Re: Well, I was only over here for 19 days=(

    Nothing changed whatsoever. I just really think he was ready to wean! I wasn't going to "force" him to nurse if he didn't want to. I'm just glad we made it to a year!

    Well, I was only over here for 19 days=(

    My DS turned one on February 21st. We were still happily BFing in the morning, before bed, and if he woke up at night. He started taking a little bit of cow's milk with breakfast and dinner.

    Re: how long did you nurse

    My DS turned one 2 weeks ago, and we are still nursing in the morning, before bedtime, and if he wakes up at night.

    I noticed just before 12 months that he didn't seem to care if he nursed or not...

    Re: Thoughts on pumping at this point...

    I also stopped pumping just before 12 months (I had/have a freezer stash too). If it were me, I wouldn't start pumping again. I was so happy to get rid of the pump. I agree with PPs-maybe try rice...

    Question about teeth and BFing...

    My son will be one this month (which is why I thought I would post over here). His two top front teeth are coming down. I can feel them when he nurses; it feels like they are grazing my nipples.

    Re: Need some help--several issues

    It sounds like you are doing great!

    My son is 11.5 months old, and he has always nursed off one side per feeding. You do not have to nurse from both sides at each feeding!

    My son nursed every...

    Re: Need ideas for 10-month-old

    If your baby has shown no signs of allergies by now, he should be fine. At DS's 9 month appt. his doctor gave us the go ahead with all foods except honey, egg whites, fish, chocolate, peanuts, peanut...

    Re: How scared of oranges & potatoes should I be?

    I send my son's food with him to daycare, and she feeds him only what I send. That way I know what he's eating, it's easy for her to prepare, and it's very healthy.

    By a year your baby should be...

    Here are a few ideas...

    crackers (saltine crackers-I buy the saltless tops)
    steamed fruits and veggies-if the fruit is too slimy to pick up, you can roll it in crushed cheerios
    black beans...

    Re: Timeline and amounts to bf?

    The length of time you'd like to pump really depends on you. My son will be one year this month, and I plan to stop pumping then. I have a huge freezer stash, so he will continue to get that in a...

    I BF my son to sleep every night, because I didn't know how else to get him to sleep without stressing both of us out! I BF him to sleep until he was 6 months. Suddenly at 6 months he started pushing...

    Re: How many oz of BM in bottle?

    At 5 months we were giving about 5oz. in an occasional bottle. If your baby seems to want more, then you can give more in each bottle. If your baby doesn't drink it all, then I would give slightly...

    This is what was happening with my son around 6 months. He was nursing so frequently and never getting full-which is why he had to nurse frequently. As soon as I was able to stretch the time in...

    Re: Help!!!

    She can start up again with BFing. Some moms will disagree with what I'm going to suggest, but if she really cannot get the baby to latch on, she may want to try a nipple shield. I used one for a...
  18. Re: Does anyone have any advice on breastfeeding an older infant

    If you go to the solids board, there's a lot about BLW/BLS on there. Basically it means that you do not offer your baby pureed food from a spoon. You give them "regular" food and let them feed...

    Re: milk supply low!

    It's normal for BF babies to decrease the number of times they poo. My DS's pedi had warned me that he could go 5-6 days without a poo. He went from going several times a day to going about TWICE A...

    Re: practice day success.?!?!?!..

    That sounds really good. If you are concerned that you are not pumping enough for her, then you can always add a pumping session at home. I pumped twice at work and once in the evening before I went...
  21. Re: Does anyone have any advice on breastfeeding an older infant

    Your baby definitely will not wean herself at 8 months. She is probably just distracted and more interested in the world around her.

    Could it be possible that she didn't take very much BM from...

  23. HELP! Is nasal decongestant ok while nursing?

    I just took some a few minutes ago without thinking to check if it's okay.:shrug

    Hopefully DS will STTN, so I won't be nursing him again for about 7 hours.

    Thanks.

    Re: Question about breastshield sizes and pain

    I would try bigger horns. This helped me a lot. I was in pain and the horns left marks around my nipples too. I haven't had a problem since I bought bigger horns. I bought them at Target for the PISA.

    Re: Pumping, Decrease in Milk Production

    I would recommend taking Fenugreek. It's similar to Mother's Milk Tea, but you only have to take capsules rather than drinking something. Fenugreek helped me. I took 3 capsules 3 times a day.
