    Re: nursing a 22 month old too much?

    My 20 month old nurses 3x a night or so still. I have her trundle bed right next to my side of the bed, and she's up-down, up-down, up-down during the night. It can be a little disruptive to my...

    Re: Family Criticism

    My MIL was the same as yours, with comments about it being disgusting to nurse toddlers or to tandem nurse. She also wanted to bottle feed LO. I think being around her first grandchild triggered all...
  3. Re: Any of you working moms pump for your kids over 1yo while they are at sitter's?

    My LO is 13 months. I pump once a day at work, about 3 ounces. She has it in a cup with her lunch the next day. She added an extra night nursing session a week after I started back.

    Re: when to start beans?

    We did beans at eight months. No problems with blank beans and her favorite, refried pintos, but edamame were a whole different story! We haven't tried them in a month or so because they gave her the...

    Ouch! I feel for you!

    I use lemon juice and salt to get the banana stains out then wash the meshes with regular dish washing soap.

    LO would rather get her hands directly on her food, so we mostly use the feeder for...
  7. Re: Not sleeping through the night...

    Cosleeping in the same bed works for us. The night I learned to nurse lying down, I had the best night's sleep since lo had been born. Woke up feeling actually rested, it was great. Now I sleep...

    Re: a few questions

    My LO does this gumming thing too before she latches, or sometime's she will pop on and off a few times before gtting down to it. It seems to induce a letdown.

    Mama, you are having a hard time. :hug Pumping around the clock is tough! I did it for three months before my LO would latch on. TG that's behind us. It sounds like your LO is nursing as well as he...
  13. Re: Gas... could it be Fenugreek? Exercise? Try Gripe water??

    I don't think exercise would cause gas. It sounds like he's still at the age when he needs some help to get the gas out and is starting to think of it as uncomfortable. One thing that helped us was...

    Re: Rejects Left Breast

    You know, I've been thinking about this. My sister has OALD too but then she went back to work and wasn't constantly breastfeeding and so it lessened a bit. I've read that after the first few months...

    Re: hot weather nursing

    The heat waves can be scary. We don't have air conditioning, so we played in the tub a lot to stay cool. I also would give LO a bottle with BM in it to play with and suck on in between the naps....

    Hi, my LO had a similar aversion to my right breast but because the milk didn't let down as fast in that one. She refused to take it except while she was sleeping, so the supply in it went way down. ...
