    Re: It is true? HV says.....

    My daughter got LOTS of calcium.. cow milk, enriched soy milk, broccoli, cheese, yogurt... These were her favorite foods/drinks. And she liked blackstrap molasses added to cow and soy milk. And...

    Re: MLW...who is easier to wean?

    You're right both times. I have no experience even attempting to wean a baby. But I do know that the older dd got, the easier it was to limit her. She could be reasoned with. She could wait. She...

    Re: I hate BF

    While we're chatting here. I recall starting my dd on solids at about 5 months.. I probably would have waited a little longer if I were to do it again, knowing what I know now. I'll admit I'm...

    Re: I hate BF

    Hm. That is frustrating. Sounds like five months of real work just to feed the baby. It's good that you're co-sleeping. You're doing great.

    My dd still nursed frequently at that age.. but...

    Re: I hate BF

    Are you relaxed when you offer the breast? I've seen babies refuse to nurse because mom is nervous/tense.. but of course mom's tense because baby is refusing the breast. Baby picks up on stress so...

    Huh. My daughter also had some talks with me about death... kind of like that one.. right after weaning! But the neighbor's cat had died shortly before that.. and we also thought her baby cousin...

    Sometimes it's OK to be inconsistent and sometimes not. We can't consistently give our kids candy but it's OK sometimes. You know when the child needs firmer, more consistent limits when you run...

    Re: Help! new mom (2 week old)

    Yes it's normal. Why can't you leave the house? Maybe you and little one should get out together. I was very happy to have a baby in April so that I could get out with her and go for walks, get...
  11. Re: would you go into temp debt to stay home with LO longer?

    My mother was terrible with money. She had a job but worked the schedule around the kids and didn't make much. My dad worked a LOT and there were times we didn't see him as much as we wanted to. ...
  12. Re: Teetering on weaning really need help (long, sorry)

    I was thinking ibuprophen as well. Not too often, but only when you really need it. And switch sides as little as possible. I had to go 4-6 hours on one side to get it under control. Are you...

    Re: Just don't know what to do.....

    I think you nailed it; growth spurt. If you've been making enough milk for her up until this point, then you should still be making enough. I mean, you've taught your body so far to supply what's...

    A thought:
    Unlatch him before he gets into a deep sleep. He may fuss for a second and go back to sleep.. this will keep him from biting you unconsciously. It MAY also help him learn to...

    Re: What will happen when I wean fully?

    What a beautiful and graceful weaning. Nice bedtime too.

    As gradual and this has been, you will probably not feel anything. Mine was gradual and I didn't feel much.. maybe there was a brief...

    Another gradual method is the No Cry Sleep Solution... it was a joke for me, but it has helped some families and the book has information in there that you could apply to your own method. Really any...

    Dd and I were down to that for quite a while. I tried cutting out the waking sessions first but she was such a crabby waker. What worked better for us was for me to tell her she could nurse when...

    If you say yes, you will make it happen. It sounds like you REALLY want to do this. Go for it! It will be a little stressful working out child care, but even if it is a pain, you can make it work...

    Re: Doctor told me to stop

    This helps clarify things. Here are the things it sounds like you want/need:
    More sleep
    more food choices

    Very basic needs. The doc sees weaning as a solution to this. It may be. But if you...

    Re: Doctor told me to stop

    If you decide to wean, that's OK, but do it because you want to stop, not because the doc recommends it. I swear docs have no idea what they do to us when they say things like that!!

    Yes, all children are different.. and all families are different. Lots of kids do wean around 20 months. Mine didn't.

    Before having dd I just thought kids naturally started weaning as they ate...

    Re: how long before baby forgets nursing?

    That is a really hard age to wean. (duh, you know this.) I don't know how long before they forget (I'm sure someone else will chime in), but if you can get the milk to dry up it will help a ton,...
