    Re: How much BM for 10+ month olds?

    Until a year, they should be getting at least 24 oz of breastmilk per day. That's roughly five or six nursing sessions, I think.

    I plan to do self-weaning with my son. BFing seems to be going so well for both of us, I just don't want it to end when he turns a year. But I would like him to start taking cow's milk during the day...

    Re: strange urine smell

    As a person who gets UTIs whenever the wind blows wrong, my money's on that. It sucks for your baby, but the good news is that they're easy to fix with a few days of antibiotics. Poor baby. Poor...

    Re: fenugreek

    I used it, and it worked very well. I didn't see any reaction in my son other than his pee (and mine) smelled like maple syrup. If you take it, however, talk to a lactation consultant about the...

    Re: Is it ok to go that long?

    I would say 6 hours is too long during the day. Even at about 10 months, they usually only go about 4 hours. If she won't take a bottle, has the sitter tried a sippy cup?

    Re: Where does you baby look?

    Sometimes Esai looks at me. Sometimes he sleeps. Sometimes he tries to look around the room.

    Re: help with constipation/ frequency

    You've probably tried this, but when Esai's having poop problems, I give him some apple/prune juice. About 2 tbsps usually does the trick.

    Our pediatrician encouraged BFing, but offered no support to do so.
