    Re: Thrush? *scratches head*

    Thanks Karen! I have only had one yeast infection ever in my life I think, and I haven't had antibiotics since baby #2's birth. But since smearing it with lanolin and switching to disposable nursing...

    Re: Pressure to wean from hubby

    Thank you, everyone! Great ideas and suggestions and things to think about.

    I did remind my husband that night-weaning doesn't equal sleeping-through-the-night, but it didn't make a difference. He...

    Re: Pressure to wean from hubby

    Thanks djs.mom! I would also love any experiences/ideas about how the separate sleep space could work with an older child involved as well - my hubby isn't big on bedtime, so I generally do it...

    Pressure to wean from hubby

    I'm wondering if anyone has any tips or particular resources to suggest in this case. My husband was very supportive of breastfeeding inititally and really helped me succeed with our first child, but...
  6. Re: 4-day workshop when baby is 16 months old

    Thank you both! She is usually unhappy with Daddy both when I am there and when I'm out, but I think it's worse when I'm there! Apparently she does look for me when I'm not home, and is sad that she...

    Hi everyone!

    I haven't posted for awhile. Things have been going well. :)

    Re: Sore nipples!!

    In your shoes, I think I'd suspect my period coming soon. Or what about thrush? Or possibly baby is about to get some more teeth, so her mouth feels different, so she's latching a bit differently? I...
  9. Re: painfully nursing my toddler w/mastitis

    Aw, I feel your pain :( I've been dealing with recurring mastitis for 4 months now, so I've tried everything. So I have suggestions: tons of vitamin C and maybe echinacea, hot baths that you massage...
  10. Re: Enamel defect_is night weaning necessary? PLEASE HELP

    I'm not sure if it was exactly the same thing (I don't think they used the words "enamel defect"), but when my first daughter was 21 months old, I took her to a pediatric dentist because she had...

    Re: Leaking

    Oh, OK, I think I was thinking of breast shells. I was just thinking of using something like this on the breast that my baby doesn't use - it doesn't produce any milk to speak of, or get infected,...

    Happy Birthday to baby!

    My little baby is 1 today!

    We are going through a rough patch of recurrent mastitis at the moment, but I'm still so glad to have made it once again to a year of breastfeeding! Despite all the...

    Leaking

    What's the best way to go braless if you leak? Do those Lily Pad things work - are they those plastic sort of cups that stick on and catch the milk and you can dump it later?

    Thanks! :)
  14. Re: Help, I'm considering weaning at 12 months but don't wan

    Hey mamas, I saw a doctor today who was filling in for a breastfeeding expert doctor. The usual doctor is highly recommended and is a member of the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine; I'm not sure if...
  15. Re: Help, I'm considering weaning at 12 months but don't wan

    Thanks for the great link, lllmeg. That was super helpful and gave me several new ideas.

    I should probably ditch the nighttime shirt or nightie entirely, but I get a bit too cold in the shoulders...
  16. Re: Help, I'm considering weaning at 12 months but don't wan

    Thanks andie, good thought. I'd never thought of asking to get a culture done in case it's recurring because of a bacteria hanging around. It only happens when I have been sick, stressed, or...
  17. Re: Help, I'm considering weaning at 12 months but don't wan

    I've only had antibiotics for it once, the very first time I had it with my first daughter at 3 weeks old when I wound up in hospital with it, so almost 4 years ago. It was IV antibiotics and I don't...

    Re: Advice for final stretch

    Gotcha. I totally get it - I hate pumping and only do it when I absolutely have to! Good on you for doing it for so long. I'd stop pumping and keep nursing, personally. :) And like auderey said, it...

    Re: Advice for final stretch

    Hi there!

    I get the impression that you're in a hurry to wean after the 1 year mark - would you say that is true, or am I misreading a bit? If so, I wonder if you have considered just continuing...

    Re: Uva ursi topically?

    Thank you! Infantrisk doesn't list it; LactMed does, but with very little info. Basically "not enough info known at this time"!

    Maybe I'll ask my midwife. Thanks again!

    Re: Lecithin

    Thank you ladies!

    Unfortunately I'm allergic to eggs. I have a lot of these dietary restrictions right now - egg, dairy, soy, and gluten.

    That was me who posted previously about submerging and...
