    Re: I think I'm ready to wean

    So I thought I'd give an update. Last night went pretty well. After a lot of soul-searching yesterday and a lot of research, My husband and I developed a plan for a modified cry it out. We put her...

    Re: I think I'm ready to wean

    So last night was the worst yet. I put her down at eight and she went into the crib without a problem. She woke up really early, at 10:15. I fed her and lay down with her. She woke up again at one...

    Re: I think I'm ready to wean

    I'll try anything. So tonight I put her down at 8 (she's passed out in my arms now, chances are good she'll transfer to the crib ok). Next awakening I give her Motrin and try to put her back in the...

    Re: I think I'm ready to wean

    It makes sense that if something is making things worse instead of better, it's probably not the right thing. However, I am pretty sure I don't want to cosleep indefinitely. So my gut tells me that...

    Re: I think I'm ready to wean

    She doesn't really like Tylenol so I'm not optimistic about her taking it in the middle of the night. Her wakefulness between one and six has been ever since I started trying Jake Gordons method. So...

    Re: I think I'm ready to wean

    Interesting thought about the molars. I almost gave her Tylenol last night because she had shoved her finger way back in her mouth and was chewing on it. I didn't think about it again. Decided to...

    Re: I think I'm ready to wean

    I like the idea of dropping the dream feed. I'll try that for the next few nights. I'm in a blur right now. Just so exhausted. I'm getting anxious too b/c we are going out on a houseboat for Labor...

    LO turns 1 on August 14. I am starting to feel ready to either completely wean or cut back significantly. Right now LO eats every 3-4 hours during the day, sleeps from 8-1am in her crib (after waking...

    Re: What is this pain?

    Thanks for the reply. I would've written back sooner but I've had trouble with my login.
    LO is teething. No trauma though, I don't think. I keep waiting for fever and body aches b/c this feels like...

    What is this pain?

    So I started two days ago with pain nursing on the left side. It feels like she's trying to pull glass through my nipple instead of milk! It is getting worse instead of better and through the night I...

    Rotavirus and solids

    I think LO has rotavirus. She's had several big, loose green stools with mucus that have that rotavirus smell :( My question is, should I hold her solids right now and just let her nurse as much as...
  12. Re: Nasty smelling/tasting bm...lipase to blame I suppose?

    So sorry mama. Lipase is a bummer!! There's nothing you can do after the milk has that rancid taste. From what I've read, it won't hurt baby if she will drink it. Mine wouldn't though so I threw out...

  15. Pump weaning a week or two early??

    So I, like many others, can't wait to get rid of the pump. My LO turns a year on August 14. I have a really bad week at work that week and I am wondering about weaning a week or two early. It is...
  16. Re: Milk amount with Lunch time nursing?

    I go to daycare and nurse LO at lunch. Our ever changing schedule for the moment is that I drop her at 8, go back at 11 to nurse and she gets a 3oz bottle around 1:30 then I pick her up at 4:15ish....

    My LO refused for a long time and still only takes an ounce or two when she is really hungry. I did find that she preferred the latex nipple that you can use with Playtex drop-ins. We also...

    Re: Lipase and evaporation

    @Vegan- Good bought that lipase may not still be an issue. I'll try to pump a bit extra and see this week.

    Lipase and evaporation

    I have excess lipase and have to scald my milk every night. I use a small sauce pan and heat the milk just until I see bubbles around the edges. I'm getting really frustrated because I'm losing...

    Thanks for both replies. I thought LO was "off" this week. Definitely nursing less. I think it must be teething which I thought was supposed to make babies nursed more?!?!? Today was the worst. I...

    How wet is wet enough?

    Happy Saturday mamas! Quick question...my LO has been nursing less over the last 3-4 days for some reason. Teething maybe?? Anyhow, I know to watch output and I think I remember wanting to see 5-6...
