  2. Re: Help weaning 2-year old who LOVES nursing

    Just wanted to add that I am ready to stop nursing. We've had a wonderful relationship but I feel its time for me and time for her (she is so big and beautiful!).

    Re: no idea on how to wean 2 yr old!

    thanks all for the great advice!! I feel much better for what's ahead. I think I will keep to status quo and start talking to LO about mommy's milk going away soon. It's good to know most women will...

    Irregular cycles from nursing?

    Hi -- AF returned last month (when baby was 14months) and is very late this month. I'm going to get a pregnany test but wondering if toddler nursing can throw off ovulation? I was home the last 2.5...

    Wow thanks for this thread. I am having the same issue. Hubby wants me to wean but I don't want to (and neither does LO). I've realized how arbitrary age 1 is and how much baby still wants to...

  14. Calcium intake and mama's weight loss from nursing...

    Hi all,

    This is probably too late in asking but how much calcium should we be taking if we are nursing? I don't eat much dairy and often forget to take my calcium pills :( Also, I've lost a lot...
  15. Re: Obsessed w/ maintaining supply at 10.5 months

    we're in the same boat! our LOs are the same age and mine is super distracted too. my hubby has also made similar comments about weaning at 1 which i hate b/c i love our nursing sessions and don't...
  16. Re: 10-months, should I stop worrying already?

    thank you for the assurance. yes, she is very distracted during the day, crawling everywhere. i'm just not going to sweat it anymore. i think i just needed a veteran mom to say its alright ;)
  17. 10-months, should I stop worrying already?

    Hi All,

    I recently discovered I had excess lipase but after a week of scalding milk, baby still is a finicky milk drinker. Sometimes she drinks the whole 2 oz bottle, sometimes not (whether it's...

    Re: Back to work

    I went through the same thing -- NUK latex nipple worked for us! Like PP said, takes time and persistence. LO will eventually drink from the bottle (took about 2 weeks for us until she took bottles...

    Re: Lipase? I'm crushed :(

    Thank you Auderey :)

    Baby is almost 10-months so I probably don't need a large freezer stash anyway. I was hoping to pump wean at a year and have caregivers use up the freezer stash for day time...
