    Re: A year in review

    BTW- Auderey. That's cool that even though breastfeeding wasn't WHY you chose to not get the reduction, it's cool that you're on the other side of this coin. :)

    I really have no plans on weaning, but plan on ditching the pump. I'm not going to worry about DS getting the minimum amount of ounces. I plan on introducing cow's milk and providing it at meals but...

    Hi mama, your story sounds similar to mine in many ways. My son had slow weight gain for the first six months. His was partially due to an upper lip tie and a posterior tongue tie which went...

    Don't know how I'm going to make it

    I write here all the time. Perhaps too much. I just never know what to do. Now is no different.

    My DS is 7.5mo old. We've struggled with weight gain and supply since the first week. If I use my...

    Re: Tricks for co-sleeping

    Re: Tricks for co-sleeping

    He's 7.5mo and nurses 9 times/ day, not including however often he nurses while cosleeping. I guess my concern is not knowing if he's doing enough eating at night. If we don't cosleep, i have to wake...
