  1. Re: Weaning a very stubburn 3-year old???

    Thank you for all the suggestions. The thing that disturbs me most is the night-nursing. I really haven't slept for almost 7 years (my son and daughter- both night-nursers) combined. Setting limits...
  2. Weaning a very stubburn 3-year old???

    Hi all,
    I am still BF my 3 year-old daughter. I BF my son until he was 3.5 years old and I initially thought I would do the same with my daughter. The problem, however, is that my son was very...

    Re: End of the road for me ?

    Let down is a psychological reflex in my experience, when I think about it and worry about it it doesn't happen, try to relax. Fenugreek tablets also helped me a lot.

    Re: I hate breastfeeding

    Things are pretty much the same but we are hanging in there. She is nursing about 25-26 times a day which is wearing me out but I am hoping that once her reflux improves her BF will improve as well...

    Re: I hate breastfeeding

    Things are going kind of horrible. She completely stopped sleeping probably because she is constantly hungry. She takes 30-minute naps during the day and she just won't go to sleep at night. I have...

    Re: I hate breastfeeding

    I am as desperate as can be. It is going horrible. I think I finally figured out what is going on but there is nothing I can do about it. She just doesn't know how to suck. She sucks the first let...

    Re: I hate breastfeeding

    Thanks for all the responses. We are doing a little better. Actually there isn't much change in her behavior but I am much more calm:)
    Here is my theory on her behavior: She has reflux all right...

    Re: I hate breastfeeding

    OK I just wrote a long post and then the forum kicked me out and everything is gone so I am even more frustrated!

    I hate breastfeeding

    The title of the thread probably will give a clue about the extent of my desperation and I find it hard to believe myself since I breastfed my first for 3.5 years and really enjoyed the last 2 years...

    Re: nursing strike or weaning?

    It is very unlikely for babies under 18 months old to self-wean. It is probably related to teething. My son had a nursing strike that lasted 12 days once. I pumped through it and nursed him at night...

    breast milk for 4 year-old

    I BF my son for 3.5 years and then he weaned himself once I was into the second trimester with my daughter. Now that my daughter is born I have plenty of milk and I thought I will give some pumped BM...

    breastfeeding pillows

    I have been trying to find a nursing pillow that has a strap around the waist like My Brest Friend and machine washable like Boppy. I used Boppy with my first and I didn't find it very user friendly....

    Re: Dr. says not to nurse after one!

    The doctor is stupid. Baby's interest and ability to eat solids/different textures have nothing to with BF. Babies know when they are ready and they eat when the time comes. My son was not interested...

    Re: Breastfeeding and vaccines

    Even if you decide to get the vaccine, I wouldn't get the spray version since it contains the live virus.

    Re-reflux at almost 2.5???

    So my 27 month-old is still BF and we are both very happy about it:love He still wakes up once at night (a couple of times when he is teething).
    About a month ago, he started coughing terribly after...
  19. Re: Will it ever be enjoyable? Sorry about the long post.

    It WILL get better. Once the baby gets better at controlling her head she will latch herself without any help and they always do it properly since it is the best way for them to get the milk out. You...

  21. Re: breastmilk,solids,cows milk at a year?

    I wouldn't give cow's milk unless you really have to cut below 3-4 nursing sessions simply because it may be really hard on little tummies. The proteins are very hard to digest. I started giving my...

  23. Re: Unhealthy nursing relationship-need some serious help

    I had the exact same trouble with my son when he was 3-4 months old. It continued on and off until he turned 1. I think it was related to teething (we have not seen any teeth until he was 8.5 months...

    Re: breastmilk in a cup?

    It won't be weird at all and it will be good for them since they can still benefit from the antibodies in your milk. I am planning to do the same thing if I have another baby within a year or two.
