    Re: Really struggling...

    Hi,

    I completely understand!! I just got over being sick (again) and was very worried that I just can't handle it all. The biggest thing that helps me is keeping things as simple and routine as...

    How do I drop a session?

    Hi everyone,

    I am looking to drop our 530 pm nursing session. That is the one that happens almost as soon as I walk in the door from work. My DS is 32 months old. He nurses then, before bed,...
  3. Re: Close to being weaned - suggestions on dropping morning session

    I've been wondering about something similar, only for us it would be the 530 pm session I'd like to drop (and it is nowhere near the last one). I've been thinking about snuggling while reading...

    Re: Please get your toe out of my ear...

    And on the flip side at our house I wonder sometimes if DS is thinking--"hey, stop rubbing my head, stop patting my back, stop trying to play with me, mamma! I've got work to do here and you are...

    Re: Sigh...

    Wow, that is a big milestone! It sounds like the two of you are doing very well--you meeting her needs and your LO growing up.

    I agree it is so very hard. I keep wanting to drop a feeding (DS is...

    Re: couple of questions

    Hi,

    A year ago I went on a business trip for 3 days. DS was 18 months old and resumed nursing right away. Be sure to bring a pump with you when the time comes.

    Poll: Re: Poll: After a year

    Hi,

    I got rid of the pump at about 13 months. DS would have some yogurt but mostly drank water during the day. He'd make up for that when we were together, believe me!

    Now at 31 months (where...

    Re: Help! Weaning my 2.5 year old...

    Maybe ease into it by limiting the time you let her nurse during the night for a little while? Count to 20 or something?

    I've been thinking about trying Dr Jay Gordon's nightweaning technique...

    Re: how much milk does he need?

    Hi,

    I don't think you need to give him cow milk. Here is a helpful reference from kellymom. There is an italicized sentence precisely about your question.

    Re: Need a hug....

    Oh yes, this will pass. I think my DS had a vocabulary spurt around 20 months and was waking up many times during the night. Now, at 30 months it is more like once or twice.

    I really admire you...

    Re: Low suction when pumping

    I used a Medela Pump in Style at work, and one time the little white flappy things weren't attached quite right. This ruined the suction until I took them off and put them back on again. I've also...

    Re: When to add a pumping session?

    Hi,

    I'd vote for as soon as you get to work in the morning. Pumping before you leave home (I kept a manual pump at home for just this reason) in the morning would also work, I imagine, but I...

    Re: Traveling w/o LO

    Hi,

    I would think she would eat some of those times but not all. I think I traveled to a board meeting for a couple of days when DS was about 10 months, and what I remember from that first trip...

    Re: 11 mth refusing milk at daycare

    I seem to recall that my guy started drinking a lot less around this time, maybe 1 serving (3 or 4 ounces) of expressed milk a day. I think he also drank water, maybe enjoying the novelty of it. I...

    Re: Anna asked her nanny to nurse her

    My guy asked at daycare in the fall! They didn't know what he was saying because he says 'opposite side' or 'opposide' when he wants to nurse. I told him that just like it is only Robert that...

    Re: Pump weaning question

    Hi,

    I think it will depend on how much she is nursing during the day at that point. You might not have to pump at all, or you might want to pump once in the middle of the day for the first week...

    Re: cows milk allergy

    If you scroll way down on this board there is basically a food section--feeding your family, weight loss, and allergies. Let's see if I can make an internal link work.

    We noticed that my guy had a dairy allergy after he turned a year old. We started introducing cow's milk mixed with BM at daycare so that I could stop pumping at work. He was unusually...

    I am afraid I don't have any BTDT advice for you. Lately I've been thinking how great it would be if DS weaned all on his own in the next few months but I see no evidence that is happening any time...
