  1. Re: On-demand Nursing=Demanding Child?

    :ita I couldn't agree more.

    You haven't made your child demanding. The nature of all children is to be demanding. And all children, no matter how they are fed or parented, are more likely to...
  2. Re: Unreasonable restrictions on pumping from HR

    If possible, go in to HR with a solution in hand instead of presenting them with a problem they need to solve. If you can find an empty office, or suggest a way to make the pumping set-up more...
  3. Re: Distorted sense of self, breastfeeding

    :hug So much of what is written about infant sleep is toxic, and insidious. It's full of loaded language about how "dependent" a baby can become on nursing, and nudges about how you can foster...

    Re: to wean or not to wean

    If you are so concerned about lead, why not get yourself tested? That way you know whether or not your milk is likely to be a significant source of lead.

    Re: Red Flaky Nipples

    The red, flaky patches aren't painful now, but that could change. This really does sound like early thrush, and I personally would be very vigilant about it. If it spreads, if cracks develop, if...

    Re: Memory loss after weaning

    I've never heard of anything like this being associated with weaning. If you really feel like it is a problem, I think I would see the doctor. Make sure you get a test for thyroid function, since...
  7. Re: 4 months- doctor wants to start cereal

    How was your iron during pregnancy? Normal, low, or borderline? And was your baby born within 2 weeks of her due date, or was she early? If your iron was low or borderline, or the baby was born...

  11. Re: 7 Month old constipation - Suggestions and when to worry

    :ita Nurse, then sit upright in the warm bath. It worked well for both my girls. Not so much for me- I always ended up being the one to scrub the tub!

    Are you avoiding the BRAT foods (bananas,...

    Re: Temp Pumping One Side - How Much?

    I totally understand. Just keep nursing on that side in your arsenal- like if you come down with a plugged duct or mastitis or are engorged and the pump isn't cutting it. I know it's excruciating...

    Welcome to the forum!

    Re: Introducing liquids

    OMG, yes!!! It's a pet peeve of mine that a "complete breakfast" still seems to include juice, when we know juice is basically just sugar water. When I was a kid, my mom was always mixing up...

    Re: Temp Pumping One Side - How Much?

    There are no hard and fast rules for this situation. But here is what I would do:
    - Pump the damaged side every time you nurse. Nipple damage puts you at increased risk for mastitis because it's...
  16. Re: 8 WO - Shallow Latch, can it improve?(LONG!)

    When healing finally started for me, it looked as you describe. Pale tissue at the edges of the wounds, gradually filling in so that the cracks became more shallow and shorter as time went on.
  17. Re: Preparing to night Ween 18 month old

    Just stay strong, mama!!! When you're transitioning away from one reliable way of getting your baby to sleep to some new way, there's a very good chance that sleep is going to get worse before it...

    Re: Introducing liquids

    If you nurse when she asks or when you think she's thirsty, you are offering liquids in between meals. A 14 month-old is generally still more than capable of getting all her needs for liquid met by...
  19. Re: Weaning and psychological trauma in the toddler

    Welcome to the forum and congratulations on making it to 18 months of nursing!

    Thanks for answering those questions!

    Based on your answers, here's what I'm thinking: single long cracks, blanching, and having cracks that sit on the crease that appears post-feeding- that...
  23. Re: Freezer stash gone, start solids early or supplement for

    I think you have a very clear view of your options! I would definitely start by allowing unlimited nursing all day long and especially in the evening. It's pretty common for a younger baby to have...

    Re: Frustrated and ready to quit!

    How your baby's latch looks doesn't mean diddly. It's how it feels that matters.

    Questions for you:
    - Has baby been checked for lip or tongue ties?
    - Have either of you been diagnosed with...
