    Re: Falling alseep on the breast

    Don't all breastfed babies fall asleep at the boob? (I am holding a sleeping 16 month old right now who is on the boob.) I definately don't see anything "wrong" with it at all.
    Are you worried that...

    Re: Returning to work - sad

    Honestly I don't know how any of you in the US do it. We get a year mat leave in Canada and that was tough going back to work! I couldn't imagine 3 months! I would be a mess.
    I have the upmost...
  4. Re: 1yr old baby still BFing, but how much is enough?

    My 16 month old has never had milk. He BF when I am not at work and drinks water and juice when I am not around.
    There is no reason to stop BFing. Just do what you want. The World Health...
  5. Re: Can you please show me what your nursing "schedule" looks like for the day?

    This is pretty much our schedule too. I work full time during the week but weekends he is nursing 3-6 times and still wakes at least 2 times to nurse.

    Re: Just wondering....

    She sounds fine to me. My DS is 15 months and 20 lbs. He is tall and thin. Pretty normal for BF babes I think.

    Re: Weaning without cow milk or soy?

    I am in the same boat. My DS is being 'weaned" during the day while I am at work but he refuses whole milk, soy milk or rice milk from a sippy. I have never pumped so I don't know if he'd take pumped...

    Re: Cannot wean my 1 year old

    I have a 1 y/o and my plan was to wean him before I go back to work (we have 1 year Mat leave in Canada). But as we got closer to a year I found it too difficult and emotional to try to cut out...

    Re: What do you call it?

    I always call it "boob" or "nurse". My DS does the sign for milk which to us means nurse. Or he just grabs my top and looks down it! I always know when he wants it anyways!

    Re: What contributes to early weaning?

    It has to be bottles. My 12 moth old nurses 10x a day and 3x at night. He is not even close to stopping and would never loose interest. I guess if he had the choice from day one to have a boob or a...

    Re: two career families how do you do it

    I am going back to work next week so I am sure I will be in the same boat trying to find that balance. In the last year the only "me" time I have had is about 4 baths to myself and 3 haircuts that I...

    OMG I feel so sorry for you. I know my in-laws have the same opinions but they have never verbalized them to me.
    Just be firm and tell them that THIS IS THE WAY WE DO IT! You sound like you are...
  14. Re: Why are health care professionals so ignorant sometimes?

    It always baffels me how pro-breastfeeding the medical profession pretend to be. It is just crazy. The World health Organization says 2 years is beneficial. That nurse needs to read up on that. ...

    Re: BF after a year - people judgment

    I will be BFing after I go back to work too (at 1 year when mat leave in Canada is up) but just in the morning and at night. I am sure my supply will be next to nothing but I am sure my DS will need...
  19. Re: Can we clear up this "sleeping through the night" term?

    OMG I hate this question! Why does everyone ask if your baby sleeps through the night!? I just say no and they seem shocked that an 8 month old wakes up. My DS nurses about 2-4 times between 10pm and...

    I don't see a problem in using the breast as a pacifier. The more sucking done at the breast the better the milk supply whether it is for comfort or for nurishment. There is more to BFing then just...

    That is so great! It is amazing to think that your body gave your baby everything he needed to thrive. You should be proud. You are giving your son a wonderful gift.
