    Re: Chewing on clothing

    Babies that age will put EVERYTHING in their mouths. I personally would not worry. For distractibility, if you aren't already, try a very calm, perhaps dark, quiet, boring place.
  2. Re: Another 10 month nursing strike question

    Usually the recommendation is not to start cow's milk until after a year, but you might want to check with your pediatrician.

    It is really common for babies this age to strike and/or be...
  3. Re: You know you're nursing a toddler when...

    Today I walked into the living room to find my 3-year-old sitting on the couch, little legs straight out in front of her, a very serious look on her face, holding up her shirt and nursing her doll....
  4. Re: Weaning before traveling without toddler - 18 months

    I don't see any reason to wean. I've been on plenty of trips without my toddler (now 3 year-old) without needing to wean. For me, the easiest thing was to pump while I was away - morning and night...
  5. Re: Pump weaning and breastfeeding at home

    Glad to hear things are going smoothly! I think it's wonderful that you've reached your goal of "one year without formula."

    Re: Weaning off the pump

    Hi mama, welcome to the forums!

    There are different ways to "pump wean," but as with any weaning, gradual is best, along with listening to what your body is telling you. The way I did it was to...
  9. Re: Ideas for adding in pump time at home?

    Sounds like things are going really well! Yes, you can use the same medela nipples with those 2.7 oz freezer bottles. As for the flange size, I guess a risk with going down to the smaller size is if...

    Re: Pump when you feed? Why?

    This is so true, and I think is true both amongst breastfeeding mothers AND their healthcare providers. A friend of mine had a baby about a month ago, delivered around 37 weeks because of IUGR,...
  11. Re: Advice needed please-work and away and BFeeding

    Typically once baby is a year old mom does not need to pump as much at work as she would for a younger infant. Some mothers cut back on workday pumping at around a year, others taper pumping off...

    Re: Milk Going Everywhere

    I really wish someone had told me about the leaking before my first - I just had no idea! Lots of washing of bedding!

    Re: Depression

    Hi mama, I'm glad to hear that you are getting help for this. I haven't personally taken anti-depressants while breastfeeding but there are definitely others who have posted on here who have,...
  16. Re: Pump weaning and breastfeeding at home

    I think another factor for many moms is that many babies can start tolerating cow's milk at a year. Of course, some babies are sensitive or outright allergic to cow's milk, and some families choose...
  17. Re: Talking to 3.5 year old about weaning

    Mine is toying with getting rid of her nap. She does get tired and cranky in the evening when she doesn't nap, I guess one solution to that would be to put her to bed earlier, but that's hard in our...
  18. Re: Talking to 3.5 year old about weaning

    Too cute!

    So... why can't you tell her the boobs are tired and it's time to stop nursing and go to sleep at naptime?

    I know what you mean about feeling like she will never be ready to stop. My...

    That's good news! Maybe it was a pump thing that time, then.

    Re: Suddenly losing my supply

    It's common for moms to have a relative oversupply early on - nature's way of making sure baby has enough. Then, supply regulates over time to more closely match baby's demand. Mom may notice less...

    What is a reasonable time frame, for you? Because of course she WILL wean, eventually...

    Re: Weaning before i want to :(

    First, why tell the doctor you are still breastfeeding? It is not unhealthy in any way to be breastfeeding when pregnant, therefore I don't think it's information your doctor needs to know.

  24. Re: Advice for when pump output is low

    Sometimes even when it seems like there's suction, the pump is actually not working properly - so maybe it was the tubing not being pushed in all the way, know what I mean?
  25. Re: Advice for when pump output is low

    Getting 3-4 oz in a pumping session is perfectly normal - that is definitely at the upper end of what baby would be getting at the breast in a typical nursing session. Also normal to get less as the...
