    Re: 3 day trip

    I can't help with the SAHM leaving for the first time part, but I routinely travel for work and my 1 yo DD always wants to nurse when I get home!!!! I am sure each child's need to nurse is...

    Re: Best supplementation for 1 yo?

    Interesting points to try rice, almond, or oat milk or juice. I am going to follow up on all of them. Thank you!

    I just wanted to share that I talked to my DH and we were trying to see if she...

    Re: pump & dump?

    May I ask a related question?

    I supplement iodine in my diet. What is different about the iodine that was (or may have been) used for this test?

    Best supplementation for 1 yo?

    I WOH, BF on demand when I'm home (including nights--we cosleep). I have only been able to pump once a day at work lately and for quite some time I have noticed a decrease in supply (even before I...

    Re: Rotavirus- will only bf

    We weren't diagnosed with rotavirus, but had something similar for a week (took another week or two to really be able to eat solids again). We nursed and offered water as much as possible. She...

    Poor latch at age one

    My DD is one (YEAH I MADE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!) and sometimes, particuarly at night, has a poor latch, causing her teeth to chafe my nipples. It's usually just irritating, though sometimes it hurts. She...

    Spoon usage?

    My 1 yo is primarily self-fed and has been for a few months now. The exception is yogurt, oatmeal, and applesauce. If given a bowl, she will smear it all over and eat a little...forgetting that...

    Re: gagging

    I would back off on offering thick foods by the spoon and let him self-feed those. At first my DD would just play or eat one piece, now she eats everything within reach! She was not a horrible...
  10. Re: all solids giving baby gas, waking him up repeatedly at night!

    Is the gas only at night? I found that my DD had to have dinner a GOOD 3-4 hours before bed or there was SERIOUS gas. No solids after about 3:30 pm for us till after 10 months. I also stopped rice...

    Re: ?? Pumping while on a trip

    I travel for work a lot, but it sounds like this is a car trip, so that's good (airports+BM=PITA). Based on kellymom.com, I read that once BM is frozen and thawed, you need to use it within 24...
  12. Re: WOH and transitioning to "nursing after age one"

    I have to chuckle at "three meals and two snacks." My DH is a SAHD and he thinks all she does is eat when he feeds her breakfast and dinner. LOL When he heard we were going to be adding lunch in a...
  13. Re: WOH and transitioning to "nursing after age one"

    Thanks so much. I'm not going to switch to cows milk. I am going to offer her a little as my stash of frozen BM tapers in a few months, but I'm pretty sure she's lactose intolerant. At least that...
  14. WOH and transitioning to "nursing after age one"

    I have a question I didn't see answered on here. My DD (11 mo next week) drinks only BM (from "the tap" or a bottle) and water (from a sippy or non-sippy cup). I WOH so she drinks two 5 ounce...

    Re: Feeling sad today

    I still feel that way some days. It's especially hard as I drive to work.

    You are a GREAT mommy...the fact that leaving her makes you sad proves that! Only you know what you need...

    Re: Expectant mom: Does pumping work?

    I really echo what everyone said on here.

    1. If you have to work (at least for a bit): sacrifice for a GOOD pump (preferably Medela PIS)...that is one way to keep your supply up.

    2. While you...

    Re: Do solids cause nightwaking??

    Oh, and one more thing. If you visit the "sleep or lack of it" thread, it seems like 8-10 months is a huge step backwards in sleep generally. LOL

    It might be a coincidence that you're increasing...

    Re: Do solids cause nightwaking??

    We have had a similar circumstance. Our DD has "mild reflux" and is not treated for it. We find that we need to give her solids a GOOD 3-4 hours before bed. We also avoid oatmeal, bananas, etc at...
  19. Re: 4 day business trip - worried about drying up!

    Maybe you can rent a pump to take with you or rent one from a hospital at your destination. Pumping is going to be key. On one business trip, I actually slept all night for the first time since...

    Re: No milk after ovulation

    I'm finding not only the same thing, but that DD (nearly 10 mo) doesn't seem to LIKE the milk just before or during AF. She sort of went "on strike" last time until my period was nearly done. My...

    Re: Balancing solids and breastmilk

    Thank you. She's back to nursing for now. I started to think that limiting water might be bad, so I have allowed her to have some. I did ask DH to keep the paci away from her when she wasn't...

    Re: how to ship and travel with dry ice??

    Beru:

    Just a sideline for you.

    1. When you travel, dry ice is hard to find
    2. There are Rules for the package (see TSA site) regarding ventilation holes, etc.

    I have found that frozen BM...

    Re: Nursing Strike

    I'm in a semi-nursing strike with my nearly 10 m.o. as well. And when she does nurse she bites or scrapes my nipple when she latches on or pulls off.

    I'm watching this post anxiously for advice!...

    Re: how to ship and travel with dry ice??

    I found that the "overnight with dry ice" for 10-15 pounds (because you need a hard-sided cooler with 5# of dry ice) was over $100 to ship from CA to MN. I chose not to do that (of course, if you...

    Re: Balancing solids and breastmilk

    Thank you. I will get that. It seems she might even be on a nursing strike on top of things. I do about 50% BLS and am easing into doing mostly that. My husband is a SAHD and wouldn't cooperate,...
