    Re: I miss chocolate

    I think you should be safe to try some chocolate in moderation. (I know sometimes that's hard with sweets!!) If you have just a little bit here and there you're LO should get used to it. It might...

    Re: 6 Months!!

    Congrats! We just hit the year mark, and boy does it feel good! I was planning to be done at a year, but he's having some issues with dairy products so we'll continue until we see the allergist on...
  4. Re: What to do if allergic to milk/dairy?

    I'm fortunate that my LO doesn't nurse before bed. He nurses first thing in the morning around 7 or 7:30, at lunchtime around 12, and at dinner around 6. He goes to bed around 7:30 or 8:30 and...
  5. Re: What to do if allergic to milk/dairy?

    Thanks everyone for your input. I know that he doesn't have to have milk, but he does need calcium and he seems to have that reaction to any dairy product (milk, yogurt, pudding, Gerber's cheddar...
  6. What to do if allergic to milk/dairy?

    My goal with nursing has always been one year, and my son turned 1 yesterday :cry . For the past month, we've been nursing 3x per day. My plan was to drop a nursing session per week until...

    Re: It's been 72 hours...

    Brittan - my LO's name is Thomas, too! It sounds like we're having similar feelings as well. He's currently nursing 3x per day, but he'll be a year on Saturday (amazing!). My plan is to drop one...

    Re: opinions on co-sleeping

    I was also against it at first and when I'd heard about others doing it. However, when I went back to work, I knew I would never be able to function getting up every 2-3 hours, going to his room,...
  9. Re: Got my period today, should I be preparing for any changes with BF'ing?

    Everyone is different. I know some notice a change during AF's visit, but I didn't. I got mine back at 10.5 months and didn't notice a difference. My LO didn't seem to notice, either!

    Re: Milk Questions?

    My LO is almost a year old. My breasts have been soft for awhile now. (First thing in the morning, they are harder b/c he does not nurse from 6p.m. to 8:30 a.m., but other than that, they're softer...

    Re: supplement question

    You should definitely be able to still introduce a bottle at 6 weeks! We started at about 4 weeks to prepare for my return to work. You mentioned this already, but I HIGHLY recommend having your DH...

    Re: Do you wake them overnight to eat??

    My pedi says to "never wake a sleeping baby." I agree! Let her sleep! She's past the stage where she NEEDS to eat every 2 hours. When she's hungry, she'll wake on her own. Enjoy your sleep,...

    Re: weaning soon...questions

    Yep, Tigger74, we seem to have a bit in common! Is your DD your first?
    I agree, I do not want to BF while pregnant, also. I, too, would like my body to focus on one thing at a time. Besides, I...
  14. Poll: Re: Did you have a goal on how long you wanted to bf?

    My goal was a year, but I told myself that if it didn't work or was too hard, I would not beat myself up about it and would stop. Well, my DS will be a year old on Aug. 11, only 2 weeks away, and...

    Re: Miss Lisa, why don't you feed that baby?

    Maybe you can ask the children's parents what they would like you to tell them? Or maybe the parents would like to tell the children in their own way?
    They know their children best, let them help...

    Re: weaning soon...questions

    I'm in a similar situation. My LO is 11.5 months (Aug. 11), and I want to wean. We currently nurse at 9a.m., 12p.m., 3p.m., and 6p.m. He just recently started sleeping until 9 so our 6:30/7:30...

    Re: She's getting her teeth...

    Oh, I feel your pain! My 11 month old has 8 teeth and has had them for awhile. Fortunately, he's only gotten me a few times. What worked for me was pulling him off, telling him "No!" very firmly,...

    Re: how much EBM per feeding?

    I would leave 3 oz. bottles since that's what you're LO has done before, but leave extra in case your LO is still hungry when the 3 oz. is finished. Whoever is taking care of him can always give him...

    Re: breastfeeding classes ??

    I took the class and found it very helpful. It probably depends on where you go. I was VERY disappointed in the lactation consultants at the hospital so I was grateful that I had taken the class.

    Re: about to deploy

    It might be a long shot, but would your ob/gyn or pedi be willing to write a letter stating that you need to be with your baby? I know it's not the same thing (you're dealing with our government),...

    Re: about to deploy

    You've gotten some great advice. I also wanted to give my thanks for serving our country and making such a huge sacrifice. Come home soon and safe!!!
  22. Re: Please help: any alternative for EBM and formula?

    Just be careful with the yogurt. You might want to give her a little bit on the weekend first when you can watch her to make sure she's not allergic. My DS got red blotchy marks on his face when we...

    Re: Is this true

    My baby has 8 teeth and rarely bites me. He's gotten me good a couple of times, but when I say "ouch!" and "no biting" he looks frightened for an instant and then latches back on without a problem. ...

    I haven't done any research on this and am not sure if it helps with fat in breastmilk, but I know that WW recommends 3 teaspoons of healthy oils for pregnant and nursing moms instead of two for moms...

    Re: BM in a sippy cup?

    Thanks for the link! I'm not concerned with his wet or poopy diapers so I think he's fine. He is the happiest baby so I'm sure he's not starving. I was just concerned with the scale, but the dr....
