    Re: Comfort Nursing??

    Thanks so much for all of the supportive feedback. Knowing that change may be on its way, or that his latest bout with a viral infection may have left a more lasting "need" than I realized are good...

    Comfort Nursing??

    My 20 month old is a devoted, loyal nurser and we've been able to make it work despite day care and pressures to wean. Lately, he's taken to long nursing stints. He wants his Happy Feet on in the...
  3. Re: How are they going to get him to nap?! (nursing + starting FT daycare)

    HI,

    My faithful little nurser went to daycare fulltime when he was 14 months. He has never taken a bottle and has feeding issues, so I was pretty angst filled about naps, eating, etc. in a new...
  4. Re: My baby won´t accept the bottle and I need to get back to work.

    When do you have to head back to work? Any chance you could work out arrangements to nurse him during the day (leave work)? I know the proposition seems like a bit much, but it is what I had to do...

    Re: Do you give vitamin D?

    Our ped was VERY pro the vitamin, but our LO detested the taste so much that we were lax the first months. The ped advised he have it every day. Since he's been slow to eat solid foods we were...

    Night weaning, co-sleeping inquiry

    Hello,

    We recently took our LO to a feeding clinic (posts are in the Introducing Solids forum) and one of the suggestions/goals they had for us was to stop nursing during the night, and to get him...

    Re: need suggestion/help

    Have to echo the cluster feeding info. Around the time my DS was 6 weeks old, and Dad left for a week to go fishing:), baby would nurse for roughly an hour and a half in the evening before bed. I...

    Re: Is it because she is nursed?

    My DS has been almost exclusively breastfed (aside from a teaspoon here or there of solids, and some recent interest in crackers, etc.) and is at the 97% percentile for height, weight and head...

    Re: He's sick again

    I remember feeling that same sense of "Seriously, what gives?" when my LO had what seemed to be a string of colds from month 4-7. I constantly had to reassure myself that in the long-term, both baby...

    Post-feeding clinic update

    A few weeks ago I posted a semi-frantic, and certainly emotionally charged note about my son's upcoming visit to the feeding clinic at one of our local children's hospitals. I lamented his biting...

    Re: Referred to a feeding clinic!

    Indeed! Wouldn't it be nice if the amount of worrying we did corresponded to our milk supply? I say that only because mine has gone done considerably since I've had to return to work and naturally,...
  12. Re: just started maternity leave-need to occupy my mind

    It sounds silly, but I'd watch a bunch of movies with the volume at its regular level. Since our DS's arrival, we only watch things on mute with subtitles- that, and it usually takes us more than a...

    Re: Need help/moral support (long)

    First and foremost, loudly and firmly tell yourself that you are working miracles by working the hours you do, and providing for your daughter in a caring and attentive way. The first month I was...

    Re: increasing supply

    I hear you.

    I returned to work with a great stash, but now that I've been back to work for 4 months, my supply (body) is dwindling, and so is my energy and ability to pump. That, and I find that...

    Quinn will occasionally eat a bit of pureed food, say, 1/8 tsp. or on a miracle occasion 1 tsp. When we eat as a family, he'll take what we...

    Re: Water?

    Hi there,

    Your username caught my attention and though I don't have an "expert" opinion, the water quality that I use to mix with juice is one of the things I've had to let go. Believe me, I...

    Re: Referred to a feeding clinic!

    Thanks for the kind words and support. Yep, 26 pounds at 9 months. He's 31 inches tall (half of my height, by the way) too. On one hand, I marvel at and adore his full figure, but that's also...

    Is it really 10-15 times?

    Just checking to see if the advice about solids and having to introduce them 10-15 times before a baby might take to something is really true? 10-15 seems like an awful lots of times, and tends to...
  20. Re: one-year-old nursing almost exclusively still

    Wow. I can relate to the ebb and flow nature to baby's adventures in solids. My son has had decent ventures into rice cereal or oatmeal, though it seemed to constipate him. I think we have also...
