    Re: I have milk again???

    Re: Why these pains??

    Maybe your hormones are extra crazy this month? Some months I would get real sore from ovulation through to AF. Other months my breasts felt just fine. I'm not sure why the variation.
  5. Re: Are there any more nursing older toddlers?

    Didn't get to read all the posts, but just wanted to say "I'm still here!!"

    Re: 11 months old not using sippy cup

    My sil had luck with the straw cups too.
    I think I started with a soft Nuby cup for my ds. He didn't figure out the hard plastic sippies for a while.

    Re: Breast Shield weaning - Help? tricks?

    My situation was kind of different in that he was hooked on bottles and not the shield. The shield was so big he would gag on it, but he liked the feel of it because it felt like the bottle nipple....
  9. Re: BF for more than a year - people judgment

    Just want to :clap for you! I still worry some about what other people think. My baby is going to be 3 in a couple months and shows no sign of wanting to wean. It makes him so happy to nurse and of...

    Well, mine shrunk down back to my AA :cry size after I night-weaned when my ds was about 2 1/2 yrs. He still nurses once a day and I'm scared that I'll be A- or something when he quits :lol I began...

    Re: really want to breastfeed

    I couldn't get my milk supply to go up with pumping alone (I may not have been consistent enough though) You might do just fine with it. My baby was always better at getting the milk out and when he...

    Re: Not too late?

    Wow, kim. I'm sorry you all are having such a rough time!

    I'm not a doctor but.........I would think it is the formula and not your breast milk that is causing the bleeding! It may be a good idea...

    Re: One boob bigger than the other

    Hey,
    I would say that sounds pretty normal. My right breast was larger and has always produced more milk than the left. Also, it is normal for your breasts to become soft after the first few weeks...

    I had never really thought about this until I saw this post. I thought the stories were really cute and funny, but didn't guess my lo would ever do that. He is 26 months old.
