    Re: Past 18 months: why?

    Well, if he doesn't nurse during the night, then you didn't need to nightwean him. Antonia needed a wee nudge in that direction. I remember vaguely that something like a regular eight hour gap...
  2. Re: Newborn help!! Falling asleep with Breast in Mouth

    You can try "Pantley's Gentle Remover", that is: unlatching baby just as she dozes off, and if she fusses, let her on again for a while, then unlatch again, let her back on if necessary etc etc,...
  3. Re: Too sleepy! Only nurses for 5-10 minutes. Help!

    Have no specific advice to give, but keep going! That seems to me to be the most important thing about breastfeeding. Good luck!

    Re: how many times per day?

    My older child fed eight times a day like clockwork and a few times at night until she was quite established on solids. With my younger...I didn't count. Just whenever. Certainly more than four times...

    Re: Baby Sleeps on me!

    Yep. Just wait till you'll have a seventeen-year-old sleeping on your tummy. :p

    Hey, don't worry, your baby will outgrow this stage, sooner or later. If you want to make it sooner, you might want...

    Re: Past 18 months: why?

    Here's my experience:

    - Nightweaned my daughter at eight months old, in order to get fertility back, fell pregnant straight away.

    - Antonia continued to nurse during the day 2- 5 times during...

    Re: Giving water?

    I have heard it from both pediatricians and health visitors that EBF babies do not need water. Not only does the water content in breastmilk adapt to the climate, but there are minerals in the...

    Re: Earliest they self wean?

    I know of two cases where a child didn't want breast any more, one at eight months and one at eleven months. Both were second babies to experienced breastfeeding mothers who had wished to continue,...
  9. Re: Do you find it creepy when they talk about it?

    I feel ambivalent about it. I am tandem nursing and have experienced some nursing aversion after baby was born, so I restrict my toddler's nursing. Otherwise I would probably be more positive about...

    Re: wanting to begin correctly

    I would say, watch the baby and the clock. That way, you can get to know your baby's feeding patterns more easily. Let baby decide when she has had enough, but note how long she has fed, and you...

    Re: are we on the right track??

    A midwife told me that if baby is a good weight (like my boy who was 4750 g at birth) then you don't need to wake him during the night after the first week or so.

    If your baby seems contented and...

    Re: doesn't seem to like my left side...?

    You can try to use a different hold that mimicks the way she lies at her favoured breast. E.g. if you have the cradle hold for the favoured breast, try the rugby hold with the other, so that baby...

    Congratulations, and it sound as if you are doing great!

    The chaos is normal. This is probably the biggest change you will experience in your life - well, it was for me, moving to a different...

    Re: Night nursing at 32 months

    I can understand your concern. I was reluctant to restrict my daughter's nursing, because, well, she didn't ask for us to have another baby! But we justified it to ourselves by thinking that in the...

    Re: What do child psychologists say?

    Here's my little point of view:

    On Freud: With all his merits, he is not exactly the cutting edge of child psychology, is he?

    On Klein: Who says that a nursing child does not relate to other...

    Re: my mother-in-law...

    This whole thing about having your body back completely puzzles me. A breastfeeding mother is just using part of her body for the function it is designed for. And sharing your body with somebody you...

    I have no advice to offer, just want to say that I feel for you and your family; what a difficult situation this is and how much anxiety it must bring! I sincerely hope all will go well and you will...
  19. Re: I stink at BFing in public... need how-to's

    And another thing:

    While there still are young (and not-quite-so-young) women walking around with bare midriffs and half their bottoms hanging out of their trousers, I won't care three straws if...
  20. Re: I stink at BFing in public... need how-to's

    I wear loose tops and when baby is finished, just let it drop down. Then I put my hand up my top and do up my bra. I didn't need nursing pads after a couple of months, you probably won't need them...

    Re: baby sleeps very less !

    Many babies breastfeed much more often than every three hours, so there is no reason to worry.

    If your baby is alert and contented during her waking time, then she is probably getting both enough...

    Re: Intro

    I think the most important conditions for successful breastfeeding are:

    - Information (which you can get here)
    - Confidence. You can feed this baby. Many women think they don't have enough milk,...
