    Re: Is it so bad to Nurse to sleep?

    I think there is nothing wrong with nursing to sleep. My daughter is now 2 1/2. We nursed to sleep until it stopped working, and we never let her cry herself to sleep. She learned to sleep through...

    Re: how do you define extended bf?

    "Extended" bf is when LO and I are all stretched out on the bed, nursing. :D

    OK, stupid pun. But to me at some level, calling it extended seems to imply that we're doing something that's not...
  3. Re: Wondering about nursing to sleep in the long run

    I can't answer your question in its entirety since dd hasn't weaned yet, but I can share our experiences. She is 21 mo and we still nurse before bed and (on weekends, since I work during the week)...

    Re: Question on WHO charts

    Ooops---just reread your post--if your son is between -1 and -2 SD then his weight falls in somewhere between the 3rd and 15th percentile . . .

    Re: Tantrums and nursing

    Overall I think it would be OK to nurse to end a tantrum, but when the tantrum is BECAUSE you've told her "no nursing right now", that's tougher . . . can you share more specifics about these...

    Re: Recurrent clogged ducts due to teething

    I'm not exactly sure how lecithin works . . . as far as I know, it makes the milk less "sticky." I assume this happens because the lecithin changes the viscosity (?) I would think the tablets and...

    Re: Water consumption?

    Hi,

    I think as long as you make water available, she will drink it when she's thirsty. Also, if she makes wet diapers, you probably don't have to worry that she's dehydrated. Since she's...
