  1. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    Week 1 of Dom taper

    After a session with my doctor and IBCLC last week, I'm beginning my taper off domperidone this week. Yesterday was my first day of 110mg/day (40mg/40mg/30mg) and I am pleased...

    Re: Weaning a 3 year old

    First, congratulations on 3 years of nursing! That's an outstanding accomplishment.

    I would also like to reassure you that your daughter will, indeed, self-wean. If you went around and counted the...
  3. Re: When co-workers bash on breastfeeding

    Not responding to his comment doesn't have to mean agreement. :) I am a vocal advocate of full term nursing, but I save my energy with the troglodytes.
  4. Re: pressure from outsiders to wean 12mo

    Try this one on for size, "We'll wean sometime before college, not necessarily before puberty. But enough about me! Tell me, how are your reproductive organs faring?"

    If you can deliver this...
  5. Re: Over 3 years without menstruating regularly?

    My son is 3 years 3 months, also, continuing to nurse, and my cycles haven't yet resumed. We cosleep and typically nurse ~6-8 times in 24 hours. (Though, due to a short term change in care, he has...

    Re: Flu shot for 12mo

    I am firmly in the pro-vaccination camp. Herd immunization is a primary source of community health when it comes to communicable diseases. I have had DS3 immunized for all routine flu shots and...

    Re: Weaning and depression

    My mood is noticeably lower on days where DS3 skips one or two feeds. We took a train trip on holiday recently and he went 8 hours without nursing, whereas he normally would have nursed 2 or 3 times...
  8. Re: You know you're nursing a toddler when...

    Hilarious! We do ear and eye nursing, too, but no butt yet (though he likes to do what he calls "buttles", which are battles in which he unlatches and whacks my boob with his bum).
  9. Re: # of nursing sessions when period returned

    OMG, yes! We just returned from a 2 week holiday at my parents' house, and DS was the perpetually latched child for large parts of our day. How many "sessions" does this sequence constitute?

    What mommal said, 100%.
  11. # of nursing sessions when period returned

    Hey Ladies!

    Just wanted to poll the veterans here. How many nursing sessions were you doing overnight and in total for 24 hours when your period returned?

  12. Re: Two years of breastfeeding! Woo hoo!

    Congratulations on two years of special bonding together! The joy in your post is evident, and I wish you a happy breastfeeding journey as you embark on your third year! :)
  13. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    What a beautiful thing to say! :)

    After reading your thoughtful post--and others' (thank you to everyone who replied!)--and giving myself some time to process the points you've made, I'm starting...
  14. Re: Nipple Pain, Not teething, not poor latch

    Illness from a cold or flu can cause unusual latch and changes either way in nursing frequency in a child feeling under the weather. The first sign I usually get that my son is coming down with a...
  15. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    Can I just say that you ladies are awesome? Really. I was feeling extremely unsure of my decision, mired in fear, and quite alone, and you have all given me so much love and reassurance. I love...
  16. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    In my faith, natural family planning, broadly speaking, is the only form of birth control permitted.
  17. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    Mommal, you are a total doll. I think you will turn out to be right and, in the unlikely event that you aren't, I have no plan to hold you to your crow-eating promise (though, if you have a penchant...
  18. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    Thank you so much for everything you shared, sonogirl. It helps so much to get feedback and commiseration like yours. This decision has been so isolating IRL that it is a balm to my weary heart to be...
  19. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    You have me intrigued! Would you mind sharing your dose (am I right to understand you are no longer taking domperidone at all now?), your nursing frequency on and off domperidone, and the timeframe...
  20. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    Thanks for sharing your story about your children maintaining nursing during pregnancy, anaduralia! Nursing through pregnancy is a great analog that I hadn't considered! I am feeling more reassured...
  21. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    Thanks tclynx! I think some of your well wishes have come through, because a wave of peace of mind has helped me calmly decide to move forward. :)

    Domperidone is a wonderful option for mothers who...
  22. Re: Help: 3year old sleeping on breast

    My 3yo is currently asleep with his arm draped happily over my breast.

    DS' best friend (also 3) cosleeps with his mother, though doesn't nurse. His mother is just weaning his 6 month old baby...
  23. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    You actually wrote two things that are a BIG help!
    - I was reassured to hear that you've been able to maintain supply off domperidone! That gives me hope!
    - Your thoughts and prayers will give me...
  24. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    This is EXACTLY what I needed to hear, particularly the bolded part. I think your points to let go of are apt. I really am borrowing trouble from the future by worrying about this.

    I've done some...
