    Re: Daycare "Issue"

    :ita Agree that it sounds like your best option is to get a carseat and insist she use it. I wonder if someone has one you can borrow, though? This was not an option with my first two (nearly 20 yrs...

    Re: Difficult mornings! Time to wean?

    This sounds similar to something I go through off and on with my 19mo DD, and have for several months now. She will take spells where that morning nurse goes so long I start getting impatient, and...
  3. Re: Small cut on areola will not heal! H

    :o Aww, heck. Thanks for catching me on that!

    I question their info on the possibility of overdose amounts of a vitamin in breastmilk. Whether they're right on that one, though, you're absolutely...
  4. Re: Small cut on areola will not heal! H

    I love the advice in the KellyMom link. And, as with PPs, my skin seems to heal more slowly than I expect it to these days. I sometimes wonder about my Vitamin E and Vitamin A intake when that...

    Re: *sigh* Tooth Decay

    It's probably not the breastfeeding; here's a great article on that: http://www.llli.org/nb/nbsepoct02p164.html . Type "dental caries" (without the quotes) into the search box to find a whole lot...

    Re: Finding a Pedi

    :ita :ita :ita



    I may only partially agree with this. While "supportive of breastfeeding" may not be a top priority, I might need a pediatrician who is more knowledgeable about breastfeeding...

    Re: borrowing trouble?!?!!?

    Oh, Mama!

    I would like to reinforce some of the main points already made, while offering a slightly different perspective.

    My first two children were each in daycare by 13-14 months. Late Son...

    Re: cup feeding a toddler

    It sounds like your DS is getting enough liquids that you don't have to worry, but I would be offering a cup now just as training. My solution was to offer water most of the time, with watered-down...

  12. Re: I want to stop breastfeeding my todd

    Mama, I am so very sorry for your loss. I have had to deal with the loss of a child, and I have had to deal with a demanding toddler who wanted more nursing than I could give--but not both at once! I...

    Re: Muscle Shakes

    I don't see anything in here that would hurt LO, unless LO happens to be allergic to sulfa. (In that case, the "acesulfame potassium" MIGHT pose a problem; I'm not sure. You'd need to check with a...
  14. Re: Haven't found the right pediatrician

    Interviewing some of the other docs is a great idea! You might also try asking the office staff or your favorite nurse there about the attitudes of the other docs; they may be able to give you an...
  15. Re: Breastfeeding and Independent Toddle

    Agree (of course! :)) that this is general temperament, and nothing to do with the breastfeeding.

    Wanted to add, though, that it's okay to start introducing "nursing manners" when you need to,...

    I don't have the book, but Dr. Hale's InfantRisk Center in Texas now has a hotline you can call: (806) 352-2519.

    You might also want to run it through LactMed.

    Ash, just wanted to let you know you're not alone; I'm in a similar situation.

    Fortunately, my DH is cool with me nursing up through age 2, but he does think that anything beyond that is kind of...

    My LO was about like this, and now at 15mo she still wakes up in the night. Now, though, that first stretch of sleep is usually around 2 hrs, so I'm able to get back up out of bed and get a few more...

    Re: no bowel movement -4 days

    Some breastfed babies can go a week to 10 days without pooping. As long as she's gaining enough weight, I wouldn't worry.

    Re: 6wk not sleeping enough???

    Several things come to mind here:

    1. Are you certain that's all she's sleeping? Some babies get their sleep in catnaps, instead of in long stretches that look like "real" naps.

    2. Are you...

    Re: tongue tie

    Hi, ML!

    Forgive me, but I can't quite tell whether you're using a medical term I don't know, or have just spelled things a little differently.

    Do you mean an unattended tongue-tie? One that...
