    We've weaned

    Well ladies, this is it....after 2 years and 27 days I have officially weaned and it's been 3 weeks since our last nursing. I had been thinking about weaning due to a variety of reasons. Here's our...
  2. Re: Weaning my 13 month old (lots of crying). Tips please!!!!

    I can only share my experience with you. I have recently been doing the Jay Gordon method. I chose no night nursing after 9pm since DS has to get up at 5:45am for daycare. Of course if he gets up...

    Re: Not complaining but...

    FYI: my cousin was BF and got pregnant-she was pregnant for 7 wks (only 1 conception date) and the OTC test was still negative. You may want to ask for a blood test.

    Re: An embarrassing question

    Not sure if this would help, but maybe use a bandaid to cover up your nipple for a few days to get him out of the habit??? :shrug

    Re: extended bf and daycare

    MY DS is in daycare 6:30-4:15 each day. Good for you for saving up milk. I had saved quite a bit at home and still have it in my freezer. I did pump until DS was 16 mos-I would send about 8oz per...
  6. Re: fussy feeder whats going on Help please!

    My son wouldn't nurse when his nose was all stuffed up or if he had Hand/foot/mouth (resulted in painful mouth ulcers). You may want to try some home remedies to clear up his nose if it's stuffy. ...

    Too cute!

    Just a cute quickie:
    My little guy is 15 mo old and loves kisses. Last night he woke up at 12 to BF. Just before he latched on, he looked up at me with an open mouth and wouldn't start BF before...

    Re: Milk Donating

    I have been lucky enough to have quite the generous amount of milk-sometimes I think I can feed the whole family! :p Since my DS never took a bottle and barely took anything at daycare, I had an...
  9. Re: need suggestions for weaning a one year old

    Although I'm not an expert or leader and my DS continues to nurse at 15mo, I'm going on what I have read and what my MD has told me.

    I believe LLL suggests gradual weaning-dropping 1 feeding at a...

    Re: storing pumped milk at work

    I bought a larger lunch bag that holds 3 large bottles. I would pump (PIS, attach the bottles to the shields), then pour all the BM into one bottle-I'd always bring a 8-10oz bottle with me to hold...

    Re: Refusing to bf or take bottle, HELP!!

    Glad to hear she's feeling better.

    Have you considered using a sippy cup or even a regular cup?
    They have ones with a soft silicone spout (Nuby) that's easier to sip out of. And since she's...

    Re: Refusing to bf or take bottle, HELP!!

    Your poor little DH! My DS had this last year as a little guy but the sores went away in under a week. Here's what we did:

    I froze BM into small cubes and fed it to him like this. Or after...

    Re: Dry Ice and Breastmilk

    I know that when I've shipped milk to the milk banks, it's in an insulated styrofoam cooler (regular one will do just fine), pack the milk as close together as possible, top off with dry ice, fill...

    Last day

    (sigh) Today is the last day that my 13.5 mo DS will get EBM at daycare. Never thought I'd actually miss my PIS-quite the love/hate relationship. Of...

    Re: Baby not drinking all the milk I pump!

    I know that my DS did not drink all that I pumped. Maybe 8 oz in a 10hr period at daycare. What did help was making sure that cereal was always made with EBM. I'm not a nurse or LC, but I remember...

    Re: How do you sneak the veggies in?

    My son is a carb-o-vore. 8^) I make pancakes with whole wheat, (add flax seed/oil, wheat germ also), and 1/2 cup of whatever baby veggies pureed I have. Then if it needs more liquids I'll add some...
  17. Re: Hey Ladies, I'm hoping to find some support

    :hug to you during this hard time. If you're weaning, then perhaps to relieve a little bit of pressure you can hand express? I think LLL has some good articles on how to wean and deal with...

    Re: did you PLAN to nurse past 1 year?

    I figured at the 1 year mark he'd be weaned. My DS NEVER took a bottle-was spoon fed BM at daycare until he drank well from a sippy cup. He's just 1 year now and I think that if I weaned him he'd...

    Sore breast

    I woke up this morning and my left breast (outside lower edge and bottom) is sore. No signs of a clogged milk duct and no fever/malaise...etc to suggest mastitis. I fed my DS (1 year in a few days)...

    Re: How do you get ready in the morning?

    We do something a little different:
    -Shower the night before (I have straight, shoulder length hair).
    -Pack EVERYTHING and put by the door-I miss stuff if I don't do this step.
    -wake up at 5:15....

    I agree with Collinsmommy. My DS started rolling over from back to his belly on his own at 4mos but I still put him on his back to sleep. I would also consider using the AngelCare Monitor-it's a...
