    Re: cow's milk? vegan mommies?

    Ditto. We've also found that almond and oat milk are both delicious alternatives to cow's milk or as a delicious drink to fill some nutritional gaps.

    Re: how to night wean?

    We used the Dr. Jay Gordon technique for night weaning and had a lot of success with it. It's designed for cosleeping babies over 12 months, so if DD is old enough I'd google it and give it a try.
  5. Re: HELP!! Dont want to give 7month old formula

    I would avoid giving anything other than breastmilk or formula at that age, since they need the nutrition. Is baby on solids yet? Perhaps you can try to encourage him to eat more in the evenings in...

    Re: convincing hubby

    I had always planned on BFing for a year and DH was on board, but wasn't keen on extended nursing. I didn't really discuss it with him as my mind opened to nursing a toddler, but by the time DS had...

    What a wonderful gift for you to give your sister and her child! Preemies deserve nothing but the best, and breastmilk is certainly that! I am currently exclusively pumping for another baby in...

    Re: Dr. Jay Gordon method-it works!!!

    DS had been waking every hour if not more frequently wanting to keep the breast in his mouth the entire time he slept. He had no skills at soothing himself to sleep or even allowing me to sooth him...

    Re: Alcohol and 2 month old

    Yep. If you pump and dump, all you're doing is throwing away milk. It doesn't cause the alcohol to be metabolized any quicker, or lower the alcohol content of the milk that is being produced. The...
  10. Re: Anyone start solids at 4 months? Why or why not?

    We waited till 6 mo because of the reasons explained in those links. I think most people who start solids before then are mistaking normal develpmental interest for actual readiness. There are a...

    Re: EBF at 11 months

    He's not at all interested in finger food or self-feeding, and the gagging leads to vomiting 9 times out of 10. We offer solids 5-6 times a day in various forms and situations to try to get him...

    EBF at 11 months

    I know this isn't technically extended BFing yet, but close enough and I didn't know where else it might belong. DS will be 1 in a couple weeks and has recently decided that he doesn't want solids...

    Growth spurts can hurt, afterall, they're GROWING. Having your muscles and bones doing all that stretching can't feel good. Also remember that growth spurts are developmental as well as physical,...

    Re: WHITE poop?????

    I know it's not really what you asked about, but I would strongly advise against giving sugar water, sprite, or anything else besides BM to a baby that young. It's normal for babies to stop making...

    Re: NICU won't allow me to BF.

    I agree with the PPs. When my son was in the Level II nursery they had me nurse first (since it's more work) and then finish the feeding by bottle or feeding tube.

    Your schedule looks pretty good to me (I almost exclusively pump, with a daily BFing session), but is your baby sleeping through the night already? 7 total pump and nurse sessions in 24 hours is...

    Re: Green BM's, is it normal?

    My understanding was that green BMs aren't a cause for concern in and of themself unless the poop is green and frothy. Since the consistancy is still seedy, it sounds likely that the color is due to...
