    Re: Turning One!

    I didn't know 3-4 times a day was enough! Thank you. Do I need to give any water or juice or is just the breastfeeding enough liquid?

    He is a funny kid because he loves his solids, but he...

    Re: 10 month old weaning?

    I think he's back!!! I snuck him out of bed to nurse last night right before I went to sleep. While he "slept" he sucked away! It was like he was starving, he just kept nursing and nursing with...

    Re: 10 month old weaning?

    Thank you. The liquids through fruit is a good idea. He refused all day so he had to have another bottle of pediasure. I left the house for him to have- it just makes me sad.

    Could it be my...

    Re: 10 month old weaning?

    I completely agree with the solids thing. We wanted to hold him off but he was open mouth diving for food at 8 months. He doesn't get a lot of solids anyway. He will just get some table foods now...

    10 month old weaning?

    My son is pretty consistently refusing to nurse and just wanting solids. I was planning on nursing him until at least 2 and then see how it goes from there. He will nurse at night still but now...

    Re: 7 month refusing to nurse

    We have started solids but he doesn't get them everyday and only if he has nursed. He didn't have solids for probably a week when he started his strike. Last night he nursed about 5 times and had a...

    7 month refusing to nurse

    My son has just been breastfed for 7 months. He is now refusing to nurse and not having wet diapers. He does nurse in the middle of the night and will have wet diapers when he wakes up. He will...
  12. How much milk do I need to leave?

    My husband and I are going out tonight. My son is 2 weeks from 6 months. I need to leave milk for him (we are only going to be gone 3-4 hours) but I have no clue how much to leave. He has been...
  13. Re: Breast milk storage question

    I agree with what has already been said about storage and about breastfeeding vs. pumping.

    With my first child, I didn't understand (and had no help) when it came to breastfeeding. I thought...
  14. Re: Extremely Fussy Baby... think Milk supply is decreasing.. Help!

    I am sure you have thought of this but with the weather changing could it be eczema? My 2nd son had it horribly as an infant and now still gets it this time of year. Good luck on figuring that...

    Re: Gift For Premie Mom & Baby?

    When my son was in the NICU (only 6 weeks, I can't imagine how long she has to go through):cry a group at my husband's work got together and bought us gift cards to different restaurants and gas...
  17. Re: Extremely Fussy Baby... think Milk supply is decreasing.. Help!

    It took us several days to start to really notice a difference. BUT he gained a pound 3 ounces in 10 days so it did work! He had dropped about 1/2 pound.

    I never did supplement... I offered...
  18. Re: Extremely Fussy Baby... think Milk supply is decreasing.. Help!

    I just went through something similar with my son. I was pretty sure it was my milk supply. I am the same as you- but I never pumped, exclusively breastfed. I took him in to have his weight checked...

    Re: Losing weight

    Okay, new question. I am pretty sure he is gaining weight again. He is looking chunkier anyway and I can tell my milk supply is up. He has an appointment tomorrow to be weighed.

    I actually feel...

    I think it is more brownish/yellowish/orangish...

    I will watch for the green. Any tips on how to be sure he is getting hindmilk? When do I know he is getting it? Any ideas on how to know?

    Re: Losing weight

    Same scale. I do think they are accurate. They have always used that scale and he is obviously skinnier. His length and head have continued to grow along his curve.

    He eats about 20 minutes,...

    Re: Suddenly Cranky Guy

    That sounds a lot easier. I will do that. I am trying to use different positions to nurse him because it seems to help him eat when I change things up... don't know why. My arm has been breaking...

    Re: weight gain issues w/4m old

    I am so sorry. I would also get a new doctor. To me that is just weird advice, border line creepy.

    My 2nd son had huge weight issues and I was told to add formula to my pumped milk to increase...
