    Is he weaning on his own?

    My ds is 11 months. My goal for breastfeeding is one year at least. We're very close but I was thinking that if he wanted to, I would nurse him longer than a year.

    But here lately, it seems...

    Re: I need a pep talk DESPERATELY!!

    Don't feel bad, I'm in the same boat. The most time I get to myself is the bubble bath I take right before bed at night. The rest of the time, I'm on call, 24/7. My hubby is gone 5-6 days a week...

    Re: WEIRD positions while nursing!!!

    LOL My son does that same thing!! It started like 3 months ago and he is still doing it. At times it's cute, other times it's annoying. I have made the joke that he thinks he's part horse or...

    Argh!
    They never called me back, so I called them. The doctor had written on his chart that the results that had come back so far were normal and reassuring, but I was still instructed to wait for...

    Re: Devastated

    Ok, wierd. I'm looking at the height/weight list they gave me and according to THEIR records, he was 15 lbs 1 oz on 4/25/07. I have 13 written down here, not 15. Could it just be a mistake?

    Thanks for the encouragement, ladies. I'm just so upset. I spend so much time nursing, and advocating it, it just makes me feel like a failure when my own child is not gaining weight.

    Devastated

    I feel like a total and complete failure, not to mention a fool.

    My son had his checkup today. He's 10 months old and way below the 5th percentile in both height and weight. He's been exclusively...

    Re: Jasmine rice (aka white rice)

    Every time we eat chinese, LO gets jasmine rice. We've been doing that since he was about 7 months or so. He loves it. It's very messy but so cute to see him gobble it up. :)

    Forgive the bluntness, but here's what I think:

    She's full of it and you should keep doing what you are doing. She's getting much SO more than just milk from you by comfort nursing. It's not...

    Re: Is it supposed to hurt this much?

    Hi there, congratulations on the birth of your baby!
