    Re: 21 month old quit nursing

    Have you considered the possibility this is a nursing strike?
    I am not sure what you mean about normal behavior? No need to worry about your child wanting to touch and cuddle your breasts. That is...

    Re: 9 week old constantly detaching

    Has it been a while since the last prior nursing session? When you say first morning feed, what do you mean- Isn't baby still nursing overnight?

    The timing would indicate fast/forceful letdown to...
  3. Re: One week without breastfeeding... How to restart

    The way to increase supply is to increase the frequency with which milk is removed from the breast. That means 1) nursing more often and 2) Pumping more often. Galactagogues like fenugreek may help...

    Re: Nursing 13 month old

    I knew you did not want to make your child feel punished. Unfortunately moms are told to do this type of thing a lot and with all this push it is very hard to trust ourselves and our babies and know...

    Re: Breast pain

    Maybe it is time to stop block nursing? Three weeks would typically be more than long enough to decrease milk production. Nancy Mohrbacher suggests block feeding for no more than one week, although I...

  7. Re: Painful Latch On At 3 1/2 Weeks...

    What latch techniques have you tried, and what nursing positions? There are many ways to latch and/or position a baby to nurse and finding what works best for you and your baby may take lots of...

    I am so glad our words have been helpful. I am sorry if my last post sounded a bit fed up. I am not annoyed with you. You have a scary situation of a baby not gaining well and are doing the best you...

    Re: How do I get my period back?!

    If your period has not returned yet, and you are normally fertile (not in menopause or other wise have fertility issues) it almost certainly will return by 18 months to 2 years even if your child...
  10. Re: One week without breastfeeding... How to restart

    I thought it might help to have some information from doctors and breastfeeding experts about weight gain/formula/breastmilk to help you and your family understand that what we are saying is not only...
  11. Re: One week without breastfeeding... How to restart

    Look I am not a doctor I cannot tell you to go against your doctors orders.
    I can sure tell you what I would do and I would absolutely not just be giving my baby formula.
    Your breastmilk is not...

    Re: Nursing 13 month old

    This sounds not only normal but as if your child eats quite a bit.

    Not in my opinion. I am sure you do not mean it this way, but in practice wouldn't that be a bit like punishing your child for...

    Re: Nursing 13 month old

    My experience has been a little different than djsmom. I have nursed three kids well past this age. The oldest started solids at about 5.5 months. The youngest at about 7 months. They ate little at...

    Re: Sleepy baby - slow weight gain

    poops every diaper change with a few 'huge ones" in there as well as the squirts only ones sounds normal. When Baby is pooping that much, no need to even worry about pee dipes. So poops are telling...

    Re: No Weight Gain

    I am not sure if this was asked yet- When did your supply "drop?" Were supplements given before this 4 month appt that showed no gain? Was there some issue prior to this 4 month appt that caused you...

    Re: No Weight Gain

    Please see my post in your new thread. Slow or stopped weight gain is not going to be the result of an overabundance of milk, foremilk or otherwise.

    I am not sure what qualifies your mil or mom...
  17. Re: One week without breastfeeding... How to restart

    It sounds as if you are assuming this is what your doctor means. I would suggest asking your doctor if this is really what he means. Yes sometimes supplements are needed, and if those supplements...
  18. Re: Struggling with weight gain / supplementing

    Of course this is very good. Also, breastfeeding - nursing at the breast- has benefits aside from the milk.

    The early days supplement may have played a part in the slow gain, of course, but it...
  19. Re: 36 hr business trips and a night-nursing toddler.

    Hi!

    My first suggestion is to question the idea your child is a lazy eater because he can nurse all night. Children nurse all night for a variety of reasons and it is pretty typical at this age,...

    Re: Sleepy baby - slow weight gain

    The good news baby is gaining. And this IS very good news. Traumatic birth can cause a slowdown in milk production at first and babies ability to nurse well at first too. So baby getting a bit of a...
  22. Re: Struggling with weight gain / supplementing

    I agree with mamawin. I am confused how a weight gain issue was diagnosed.

    My daughter was in the 85th% for height and 15th for weight at her last checkup (age 2.) I told my pediatrician that...

    Re: No Weight Gain

    I strongly suggest getting a second opinion. The first thing I would do is make very, very sure there was no scale error. Does your baby seem to you as if he weighs exactly what he did 2 months ago?...
