    Re: When can a baby eat cherries?

    DS first had cherries at about 13 months (basically, the first time they were in season after he was starting solids and had already had a number of fruits with no problem). He is now 25 months, and...

    Re: How do you nurse lying down?

    It took me a while to figure this one out, too.

    Some things I did:

    Step one: I sent my husband out to get a ton of cheap pillows and pillowcases (for nursing in general, not just side-lying)....

    Re: Solo very long Road Trip

    How old is DS? What is his nursing pattern like now?
  4. Re: Need info on how EBF does NOT lead to food=comfort

    I think it's less of a topic that you can find research about, and more of a philosophical paradigm shift you have to make.

    From the very early days, the way breastfeeding works is supply and...

    Re: how much does a 1 year old need to nurse?

    I am glad you asked this question! So many extended-breastfeeders complain about how much their children nurse/how little their children eat. I worry that my DS is not nursing enough!

    My DS...

    Re: Cow's Milk Before 12 mos. Question

    Would it have to be milk? I give DS drinkable yogurt in a straw cup when we're pressed for time and he seems to need a meal rather than just a snack like a cracker or some fruit. MY DS occasionally...

    Re: Does it get better?

    The first few months are very strenuous. I remember being sooo tired. It DOES get better!

    DS is now 13 months. He actually used to give me 4-hour stretches pretty early on, but when he was 3...

    Re: How does time change affect milk supply ?

    Your milk supply will "automatically adjust" in that milk is made according to "supply and demand."

    I just came back from a two-week vacation in France, and I never noticed anything odd (either...
  9. Re: need help with solids - what to give?? 8.5 months old

    As long as you nurse before offering solids, your baby can usually be a good guide to how much solids to give as long as the choices you're offering are nurtient-rich and healthy. I gave DS mostly...

    Re: Watermelon!?!?

    How funny to find this post. Watermelon is definitely one of my 13-month-old DS's favorite foods. He would have it at every meal if we let him! LOL

    Thanks to the PP who suggested freezing chunks...

    Thanks! That is something to think about. I happen to have GSE around for my cloth diapers, and I wonder if some Jack Newman's ointment could stand in for the antifungal cream you mentioned.

    Recurrent clogged ducts due to teething

    Ds is 13 months and still nursing strong!

    However, whenever he has a bout of teething (DS has 8 teeth so far, and a canine tooth just pokeded through) I have a variety of nursing issues. He...

    Re: sling recommendation for 30 hours air travel

    I like my maya wrap ring sling for travel (DS is 13 months and we have flown 6times). Pouches are handy, too. With both of these styles you can easily pop the baby in and out (for example when you...

    Re: how often to feed beginner?

    I tried to keep this in mind, too. Another way of putting the same thing: solids are like dessert/ for socialization, etc.

    Re: More milk or better milk?

    We never used the 8 oz. bottles for BM. DS always took about 3-5 ounces per feed, which we would give via multiple bottles, so that if he only took a few ounces, all that milk wouldn't be wasted.

    Re: air travel

    I've always just taken my regular vitamins (Prenatals and Omega 3s) since I had DS. Pre-DS I used to take extra vitamin C before flying.

    Oh, you can/should keep nursing.

    Interetsingly, I'm not sure DS has ever caught a cold from me (which makes sense, because the antibodies would be in the milk). I, however, have caught several...

    Re: Fussiness while nursing

    My DS started doing that at about 12 weeks. A lot of developmental stuff happens around 4-6 weeks. Also, DS got his first tooth at 4 months, so Ithink teething might have been a factor for us.

    Re: air travel

    During DS's first year, I flew with him about 6 times. He's not a huge comfort nurser, so sometimes I'd be able to time it right and nurse him on take-off/landing, sometimes not. I would think...

    Those kinds of poops are a classic sign that your baby may not be getting enough hindmilk. Hindmilk is the richer, fattier milk towards the end of the feeding. From The Womanly Art of...

    DS is 13 months, and there have been a couple of times that he's been teething and I have gotten milk blisters due to poor latch, which have then resulted in a tender clogged duct.
