    Re: She fell off the chart

    I didn't read all the other responses, but my daughter gained very slowly in her second year. Around 18 months, we switched to offering solids (meals) before nursing. If it was close to meal time...
  2. Re: Worried if getting enough milk? Give water?

    I'd give her some water, especially along with her solids. Is there a reason you're worried that she'll fill up on water? Is she eating solids?

  4. Re: Weaning when neither mom nor bub wants to

    :hug I'm sure you're going through a really hard time right now. Getting the treatment you need is the best thing for your son. The first thing he needs is a healthy mom. You've done a great job...
  5. Re: Do you hide the fact that you are still nursing?

    DD is 22 months, and I don't hide it, but no one has criticized me either. I'm sorry you're getting that. You're doing the best thing for your child. Don't stop just because other people are...

    Re: Completely Touched Out

    Night weaning really helped me. You can probably find a lot of night weaning threads in the weaning section. I posted one there maybe a month or so ago. It's hard, especially when they're getting...
  7. Re: OK so you talk about weaning from a paci,,,,

    My DD (21 mos) sucks her lower lip. I can't put a sock on that, I suppose. :) I can already see it's messing up her teeth, and she sometimes gets a sore on her lip too. I pop it out sometimes, and...

    alcohol?

    DD is 21 months and night weaned. Will there be any effect on her if I have 1 or 2 glasses of wine in the evening after she goes to bed? It would be 8+ hours before she nursed again. Is it ok to...
  10. Re: Suggestion for night weaning a high need LO

    DD (21 mos) is getting her canines now, and they're actually much easier than any of her other teeth were, even though (because?) she's night weaned now. They all react differently.

  12. Re: Suggestion for night weaning a high need LO

    I would go slowly and see how she's handling it. Check out the Dr. Gordon method and also the No Cry Sleep Solution for Toddlers. Is she able to understand ideas like dark and light and that...

    Re: We're night weaning

    We had a few nights when there was some crying, but in the end, it was so much easier than I thought it would be. I think working gradually towards it made it a bit easier. I'm also convinced DD...

    Re: We're night weaning

    It's going so well. She's sleeping through until it's just starting to get light and the birds are singing. Not sure what time, because we don't have a clock in the bedroom. She nurses then and...

    Re: Frustrated by family (long)

    It sounds like you're in a hard situation. I think you should try to surround yourself with likeminded parents. You're doing the best for your baby, so try not to let MIL wear you down. I think...

    Re: How often do your toddlers nurse?

    It's probably for a lot less time each nursing. You could ask your friend, but sometimes a toddler only nurses for a few minutes. If your friend and her child are both happy with that number of...

    Re: How often do your toddlers nurse?

    DD is 20 months and she nurses about 5 times per day, but I don't nurse on demand anymore. We did mommy-led nightweaning a couple weeks ago. I also don't nurse if it's almost mealtime. We also...

    your daughter names your left breast, which produces less milk, "baby" and the right breast, which produces more, "big", and then asks for them by name.

    I wanted to lose a bit of weight in the first year of nursing, but I also wanted to eat healthy and not feel hungry. I cut out sugar, white flour, milk fat, and ate a lot less meat. I also started...

    Re: Breastmilk for my 3 year old ?

    Are you freezing some? I wonder if since you're exclusively pumping if it might be a good idea to have a freezer stash in case you have any supply issues in the future. Not a pumper here, but I was...

    Thanks, ladies. Hopefully everything is fine here too. I added in a bedtime snack today, and I was really surprised when she ate a lot of it, only an hour after eating a good dinner. She doesn't...

    Re: Doctor advice to b'feed every 3 hours

    I think you should just keep feeding on demand. Lots of babies get fussy in the evening and it doesn't mean you're overfeeding. It sounds like you're doing a great job. Does it help at all if you...

    Re: Must pull my hair with her feet

    I cut all my hair off. :o Well, not just for that reason, but it helped. Would a ponytail help to keep it more under control? Or a braid? I hope you find a good solution.
