    Re: Complicated situation - please help!

    Thanks for your thoughts, alphawoman. My preference is definitely for her to nurse longer, so I've considered exactly what you're suggesting. I'm going to need to reevaluate and make a decision...

    Re: Complicated situation - please help!

    It's been a bit of a stressful day, in terms of my supply reducing. It's taken her longer to get to letdown and when it finally comes, her active swallowing is over so quickly. I'm feeling worried...

    Re: Complicated situation - please help!

    Thanks for the reassurance on her diet.

    I'm not sure why her doc didn't test her iron. He wasn't overly concerned about her growth, but did say that if she continues dropping percentiles (again,...

    Thanks mommal!
