  1. Return to work, sleep, and pumping...

    As of 3 weeks ago I'm back to work (baby is 5 months old) and so far I've been managing to pump about as much as the baby eats while I'm gone. He is a very hearty and eager eater and takes about...

    Re: Thrush?

    Anybody else has any wisdom?

    It's been 5 days since the diagnoses my pediatrician made, and I still cannot decide how to proceed, since my son's symptoms are confined to his tongue and there are...

    Re: Thrush?

    Yep, found it!

    "There is no need to treat just because the baby has thrush in his mouth. The reason to treat is the mother's and/or the baby's discomfort. Babies, however, only very occasionally...

    Thrush?

    Thrush or not?

    My pediatrician diagnosed my 2 month old son with thrush and prescribed Nystatin. However, I'm not sure I agree with the diagnosis.

    My son only has white coating on his tongue...

    Re: Milk protein sensitivity?

    Thanks so much for responding. I did block-feeding for 24 hours and it seemed to help (or maybe it's a just coincidence since the little guy has turned 5 weeks last Thursday and it's about time the...

    Re: Milk protein sensitivity?

    I think I have both. We left the hospital with him weighing 6 pounds and at 4 week check-in he was 9.5 pounds, which is definitely on the high end of the gain.

    I did block-feeding all day...

    Milk protein sensitivity?

    My 4-week old baby is having stringy poops (no blood, at least not that I've seen). He gets gassy, but nothing that would be outside the normal newborn gassiness. He used to spit up quite a bit, but...
  8. Re: Going away for 2 days - Do I need to pump?

    Just wanted to update the thread in case it's every useful to anybody. I brought my pump along but I didn't end up needing it, which was pretty awesome. That and a full night sleep alone.

    Re: Going on vacation- time to wean?

    If you are OK with the possibility of weaning (and I'm sorry if my previous post implied that you shouldn't be, it's none of my business!) then you won't have to pump as much but you should bring...

    Re: Going on vacation- time to wean?

    Honestly I can't imagine going away for 7 days when my daughter was that young. Not just because she would have had a hard time without me, but also because I'd have to pump-pump-pump while away to...
  11. Going away for 2 days - Do I need to pump?

    My daughter will be 20 months when I will be going away (2 days and a night) for a work trip.

    She nurses 2-3 times on days that I work (first thing in the morning, first thing when I come back...
  12. Re: Dr Jay Gordon sleep method - did it work for you?

    I successfully night-weaned my daughter using Dr Jay Gordon's method, though I went more slowly at first. I started when she was around 16.5 months and we were more or less done when she turned 18...

    Re: Do I need to wean my baby?

    My period didn't return until after I night-weaned my LO (at around 17.5 months). I stopped pumping when she was 13 months, so there were 8+ hour breaks in nursing/pumping sessions, but that didn't...
  14. Re: Going away for 2 nights, when/how to pump?

    Happy to report that DH and DD got along just fine, he used the milk from the freezer stash and it all went as well as could have been expected even given that she came down with a bad cold 2 days...
  15. Re: Going away for 2 nights, when/how to pump?

    Thank you, everybody. I guess I'll try sticking to a 2 times a day (morning, evening), one time overnight (3am) pumping schedule.


    I work full-time, so my daughter loves our sitter, so that takes...
  16. Going away for 2 nights, when/how to pump?

    My DD will be almost 16 months when I have to go away for three days, two nights for a business trip

    She currently nurses 2-3 times during the day on my workdays (9am - sometimes, 6pm, and 8pm)...
  17. Re: Lost it at ped's office, totally upset & need support

    OMG, thank you all so much. Reading all of your posts is like a breath of fresh air.
    I was so upset after the visit that I called my mom and just proceeded to bawl my eyes out while my daughter was...
  18. Lost it at ped's office, totally upset & need support

    First of all, I wanted to say that I don't know how I would have managed to get as far as I did with nursing, was it not for the support of my local LLL leader and all of you, wonderful ladies.

  19. Re: Poll: when did your toddler started STTN?

    You are really perceptive! Thanks! I feel like I'm stuck in catch-22: I just cannot (physically cannot, I get light-headed and nauseous) to nurse her in the rocker when she wakes up in the middle of...
  20. Re: Poll: when did your toddler started STTN?

    First of all, thank you all who contributed to the thread. It's helpful to hear what others experiences are like.


    In my mind, for a child above 1 year old, STTN is 10+ hours on a consistent...
  21. Poll: when did your toddler started STTN?

    If you didn't try to hasten night-weaning in your child and just allowed him/her to stop nursing at night at his/her own pace, when did it happen for you?

    My daughter is now 14 months old and we...

    Tracie, you got me thinking, thank you.... I have some ideas! But I guess this would entail baby-proofing the room a lot more methodically since she just might take off without me noticing...

    Cosleeping advice needed!

    Here's the situation:

    We've been co-sleeping with our 14-months old for a while and it has worked very well for us. However, she has now become very large and rolls around like a jolly rolling...
  25. Re: Cannot get rid of the last pumping session, help!!!

    I made it home (engorged like I've got a newborn), but no issues. My daughter seemed a little surprised by the amount of milk I had for her, but happily emptied both of my boobs in no time.

    Going...
