    Re: lime green poop?? Help!

    Thanks. He has been fine, so I think it was just a reaction to the detergent on the diapers. I was just freaking out briefly!

    lime green poop?? Help!

    My 10-month old is still exclusively bf (we've tried solids occasionally, but he's not interested, and has barely digested any, and none in the past week.). Today, his diaper was a mix of yellow and...

    Re: If they self-wean before 12 months?

    Babies will sometimes go on nursing strikes at that age. This is not true weaning, and there are several things you can do to get through a strike.

    Most babies I know of who supposedly "self...

    Re: What do child psychologists say?

    I also recommend Our Babies, Ourselves. Great book. If you want to give him something really heavy-hitting to read, try Attachment by John Bowlby, the father of attachment theory. At the very least,...

    Re: When did/will you stop NIP?

    I don't NIP 2 1/2 yr old ds anymore. Mostly, he just stopped asking because he's more interested in everything else that is going on. I have told him a couple of times that he has to wait until we...
  6. Re: Do you have an age set in your mind you wont nurse past?

    I don't have a "set" limit. I'm thinking I might like to be done bf ds1 shortly after he turns 3 (he is 2 1/2 now), but that's not set in stone. I'm committed to gentle weaning, but not necessarily...

    Re: The relentless FUSSY topic

    Hi!

    I'm no expert, but those "clues" that you're not producing enough milk sound bogus to me. Is the LC you talked to board certified? Have you thought about getting another opinion? I've never...

    Re: Ugghhh I am so frustrated...

    I hear you! It is so frustrating to deal with the criticism! At some point, you just need to lay down the law: "This is what we've chosen to do because we feel it is best. You've made your opinion...

    Re: Why isn't he pooping?

    He had a poop explosion this morning! He must've been pooping for 5 minutes straight! Started with a little mec, but was definitely seedy after that. So all is well. Thank you very much for your help!

    Re: Why isn't he pooping?

    The poops were all meconium. His color has been great, and certainly wasn't an issue when we saw the doc on Friday. I haven't noticed a change, but I'll look again when he wakes up next.

    I haven't...

    Why isn't he pooping?

    My ds was born naturally at home early Wed. morning. He was perfectly healthy, and latched on like a champion right away and began nursing. He also pooped right after birth. His latch is great, and...

    From what I've been told, there isn't much you can do about the soreness, except try to get comfortable and make sure your dc's latch is good. I was sore at the very beginning of...

    Re: Ready to quit! Too much Stress!

    HI! I battled thrush, and it was difficult. My ds was older at that point (10 months), so I had a solid bf background, and knew how important it was to ds, which helped me make it through. I got it...

    Re: Breast Milk Decreasing at 2.5 Months?

    Re: Weaning and sleeping

    Hi!

    My advice is not to stress yourself out about weaning on a certain time frame. Your toddler will change so much in the next several months, that it's almost impossible to predict how your...

    I don't know if this is exactly bf related, but I thought I'd ask here to see if anyone has any experience with this, or has ideas of where I could go for more information.

    Re: Advice needed re: EBF past 12 months

    My ds had a very strong gag reflex. He would choke on cheerios at 9 months old. He never really got into trying solid finger foods until close to a year, and then at about 13 months he really took...
  22. Re: seeking EBF advice: skinny baby refusing solids

    Breastmilk has cholesterol, and all the "good" fats. It has more fats than any solids you can find. Breastfed babies do not follow the same growth pattern as ff babies. They tend to grow faster in...
