    Re: 16mo. AND DONT HAVE A CLUE HOW TO WEAN

    Have you looked into any of the newer meds for your arthritis? Some of the newer biologics are really great! I'm on Humira (for psoriasis, not arthritis) and my dermatologist had no issues...

    Re: I'm really upset...What should I do?

    Dentists just treat teeth- you're looking at his health holistically, and taking everything into account along with his dental health, it sounds like you've decided that weaning is not in his best...

    I can make a very reasonable-sounding argument for something that's dead wrong. I could make a whole scientific-sounding thing about how if you drop a bowling ball and a marble off a high place, the...

    Re: More nursing than eating solids

    Frankly, I think it's well within the range of normal. Most mainstream parents spend their second six months rushing their babies onto 100% solids, because they have to in order to wean them on...

    Re: My mom's the BOMB!!

    Two thumbs up to both your mom and your ped!

    12 months isn't such a big boy, when you think about it. Take time to enjoy his littleness while it lasts.

    Re: I Think I Have Become A Human Pacifier

    At one week old, your milk is still coming in. Your baby is stimulating your supply with all that comfort sucking. What takes some time now will pay off with a better supply later.

    So rent some...

    Re: Co-Sleeping

    If it comes up (I dont' bring it up, which avoids about 90% of the flak) I shrug and say "It works for our family." If they respond with horror stories, I make sympathetic noises, but don't validate...

    Re: Child Led Weaning

    My older son is 3.5 and nurses 1-3x a day, sometimes for 30 seconds, sometimes for a long time. His main nursing time is in the mornings when he crawls into bed with us.

    I'm not in a rush to for...

    Re: sudden nipple soreness

    It could very well be hormonal! It wouldn't be the first time sore nipples preceded a + on a HPT, or it could be your cycle about to show up.

    Re: I need to wean my DD @ night....

    She's only three months old, right?

    She'll probably still need to be fed at night. If you want her to be fed breastmilk, you'll need to pump for the nursing sessions she's missing.

    I know...

    Re: 9 hour flight with LO,any suggestions?

    I flew several times with my little guy, and it was very simple. He loved being in an all-you-can-nurse zone! I brought a book and we mostly nursed and slept.

    I don't usually wear nursing...

    Poll: Re: What's the longest you bf your child for?

    I'm currently nursing my 3.5 year old, so I answered "more than three years" but I'm planning to nurse him until he's done, so I could easily wind up in one of the other categories by the time we're...

    Re: did you PLAN to nurse past 1 year?

    I'm an odd duck- I planned on nursing my children until they were done before they were born. So here I am, tandem nursing a 3YO and a newborn!
  17. Re: Help--can't nurse my nightnurser for 3 nights!!!

    Ditto on getting a second opinion on the medications. Doctors are often quick to dismiss nursing as unimportant, especially after a year. Toddlers are also better able to metabolize drugs than...

    I agree- I don't understand why you would take some of your children, but not the baby.

    It doesn't make sense to me to cut back on such an easily digested, calorie and nutrient rich food to help a child gain weight. :confused:

    My period didn't return until 2 weeks after DS's second birthday, and six months later, on our first try, we're pregnant! Try not to get discouraged- the longer your cycle takes to come back, the...

    Re: definition of extended BF

    For me, extended nursing is when DS decides to check out what's going on on the other side of the room while he's nursing, and doesn't unlatch. Now that's extended nursing! :eek:
