  1. Re: You know you're no longer nursing a newborn when...

    I haven't posted here in months - and I've MISSED it! My DD is seven and a half months old now, and I can relate to every one of these. My favorite is the humming while she nurses - and seriously -...
  2. Poll: Re: Poll: What age did you introduce solids?

    Am I the only one who's kind of looking forward to solids? My DD is just over four months, but I think it'll be fun to introduce her to new tastes and textures. She's nursing great, and I certainly...
  3. Re: NIP--baby doesn't seem to like it!

    My daughter occasionally has days like that. My DS would nurse whenever, wherever, right from the beginning, but my baby girl is much more particular, especially if she's tired. I noticed that it's...

    Re: Misdiagnosed as thrush?

    If you can wipe the white coating off, then it's not thrush. My pediatrician told me that thrush won't scrape off without causing bleeding.

    Re: Dry nipples or Thrush?

    I had thrush, fissures and ended up with a staph infection on my nipple, and they were painful, dry, peeling, itchy, and just looked wrong. If it's peeling, I'd assume it was thrush.
  6. Re: Clock Issues/Re-Learning How to BF on Demand

    Especially if you're having supply issues - I'd just go ahead and nurse whenever she wants. My baby is right around thirteen weeks, and she nurses pretty much non-stop. I nurse on demand, so I just...
  7. Re: how long for a cracked nipple to heal?

    1. When do you have the most pain- at the beginning of a feeding, sometime during the feeding, or after the feeding is over?

    Definitely at the beginning, but to be honest, it's pretty much all the...
  8. Re: how long for a cracked nipple to heal?

    She's five and a half weeks old, and we had thrush about three weeks ago. Treated her with nystatin and I took diflucan to clear it up. I don't think it's thrush, and the urgent care doc I saw...
  9. how long for a cracked nipple to heal?

    I've got a big crack on my right nipple and nursing is really, really painful. I'm pumping on that side, and treating it with lansinoh ointment and putting breastmilk on it, and keeping it covered...
  10. Re: Self soothing vs. Attachment parenting

    I know it's so hard when you're right in the middle of it and wondering if your kids will EVER sleep thru the night. My son will be four in July and is a great sleeper. He rarely if ever gets up. ...
  11. bleeding nipple - HELP PLEASE

    Julianna and I both have thrush, and hers is mostly gone (we used nystatin) and I got an rx for diflucan. But my left breast is still SUPER painful, and is now bleeding. Should I nurse thru the pain,...

    thrush?

    We (my two week old baby girl and I) were diagnosed with thrush earlier this week. We've been treating it with nystatin, and it's worked great on her mouth, it looks so much better. But my breasts...
  13. Re: Weaned, but that look....

    My son weaned a couple of months ago, and the other day, he came into the bathroom as I was getting out of the shower. And he looked up at me and saw that I wasn't dressed and the look on his face -...
  14. Re: Completely unsupportive family for prolonged breastfeeding

    I could have totally written your post. My son had colic and reflux and was just miserable for the first six months, I couldn't have paid anyone to watch him, let alone had anyone offer. I nursed...
  15. Re: Nursing after weaned....

    It did hurt, but I assumed it was just pregnancy related. I know I'll be nursing the new little one all the time, and am assuming that he'll have a little back sliding and want to nurse too - but at...
  16. Re: Nursing after weaned....

    My son weaned about two months ago, I think, and I've let him latch on two or three times since then - when he's woken up in the middle of the night and nothing else settles him, and once when he was...
  17. Re: And we're still nursing at 3yrs old - anyone else out there?

    I think I wrote your exact post a couple of months ago... it's SO hard when you're ready to be done, and the child isn't. My son just wasn't going to wean until he was good and ready and I was so...

    Re: Need reassurance!

    I agree with everything that she said. I'll also say that even though I nursed a lot longer than I wanted to originally - there are still times when I miss it - it was, hands down, the easiest,...
  19. Re: self weaning or nursing strike, help!

    Personally, and this may not be a popular opinion, but I'd just let it go. I have no experience with nursing strikes, so maybe this is what it is, but I do know that I nursed WAY longer than I...
  20. Re: Not ready yet! DD only 8 months old!!

    My daughter weaned when she was eight or nine months old. And I was freaking out - but then I realized that it really made no difference at all, as far as our relationship went. I was still her...

    Re: Weaning my almost 3 yo

    My son just weaned a few weeks ago, he was almost three and a half. I wanted to wean for about a year and a half before he was ready - and the best advice I can give is to wait until your child is...
  22. Re: Do you hide the fact that you are still nursing?

    I nursed in public all the time, but by the time he was two and a half or so, I'd pretty much stopped. He didn't ask that often, and if I could discourage it, I did, but if he insisted, then I'd go...
  23. Re: Share Your Weaning Stories

    My DD weaned on her own, gradually and peacefully at about eight or nine months old. I didn't know as much as I know now, and probably could have coaxed her back to the breast, but contrasting her...
  24. Re: Feeling guilty but want to partially wean now

    I had some luck setting limits around that age, nursing for nap and bed and major tantrums :-). I never actually did night weaning, but for the most part, my DS was always a pretty good sleeper - so...

    Re: Nursing my 2.5 y.o. son

    My son will be three and a half last month, and is still nursing occasionally. You aren't doing anything wrong - there's no chance that I could have weaned him a year ago without it being incredibly...
