  1. Re: doctor's visit left me angry and wondering...am I wrong?

    That sounds like utter nonsense your doctor was spouting.

    As for needing 7-8 hours of continuous, uninterrupted sleep to process information, she might like to avail herself of a text discussing...
  2. Re: Poorly 1 year old only wants breastmilk - is it enough?

    Breastmilk is THE PERFECT food for young children. My son was extremely slow to warm to solids--he only really began eating a solid meal a day or more around 2.25. Almost his entire sustenance was my...

    Re: Still nursing my 3 yo

    Congrats Lisa! That's outstanding that you've been able to meet your daughter's needs on her own schedule!

    My son will be 3 in October, and he still nurses 6-8x/day, sometimes more often, with a...

    Re: Nursing and sleep. !

    I strongly endorse getting a separate mattress for your daughter's room and sharing sleep there on the single surface. My son is almost 3, and we've had that set-up for 9 months successfully. Prior...
  5. Re: Prenatal vitamin + Toddler multi-vitamin = ???

    She's probably responding badly (as all healthy people will) to a dye or additive in the product. I'd discontinue, personally, and find a more natural vitamin. Genuine Health generally has good...
  6. Re: A six year old's thoughts on breastfeeding

    Beautiful interview!

    My almost 3-yo nursing son and I were reading a book about expressing love last week and, out of the blue, he commented, "I say "I love you" by nursing." Nursing really does...
  7. Re: Mother has hit the wall after natural weaning.

    I just wanted to speak up and lend credence to perceived mood shifts during weaning. I'm nursing my son, who turns 3 in 2 months, probably 6-8x/day still, if not more, including overnight. We were...
  8. Re: Night wean 17 month old not eating solids

    I wouldn't night wean.

    Here's a thread where I discuss my DS 2.75's eating pattern. You might want to look back at some of my past posts from the last 6 months.
  9. Re: playing with other boob while nursing. frustrated!

    Be a goof. Pretend to eat her fingers or toes, make faces, sing silly songs, talk in a funny voice, etc. Make something else more interesting than getting a rise out of you and the behaviour will...

    Re: Some advice

    My son is 2y9mo, cosleeping and breastfeeding ~6-8x/day lately. We just traveled to visit my parents, who have a house almost 4 times larger than our loft and a large yard and pool. DS has been...
  11. Re: How did you get your toddler in his/her own bed?

    My son is now 2y9mo. Around 2.25, we bought a double mattress and put it directly on the floor in his room. I nurse him to sleep around 10pm, spend a few hours with DH, then rejoin DS for the night...

    Re: Need Advice-baby won't eat solids

    My son ate maybe 1Tbsp of food per day other than breastmilk until he was 18 mos, and he only started being willing to eat meals around 2.5. He's now 2.75 and is still probably 40-50% breastfed.

    Re: thoughts on breastfeeding

    Well said. Life gets so much more fluid (pardon the pun) with an older toddler, particularly.

    I'm nursing DS2y9m and am much more relaxed about our nursing relationship. He can eat meals and...
  14. Re: weaning a toddler that has history of delayed eating sol

    I'd urge you to look back on some of my recent posts, as my son only really started eating more than a few tablespoons of solid food around 2.5. Really...2.5. He's now one of the heartiest, least...

    Re: Learning to Trust

    Frequent nursing and pretty, comfy bras will be your best friend.

    Re: Learning to Trust

    My best "trick" was to nurse frequently--every 1.5-2ish hours and to co-sleep. Knowing DS had full access helped me accept that my body was getting sufficient signals to do its thing.

    That was...
  18. Re: What happens if you don't night wean?

    I hope you don't mind my chiming in, as my son is just shy of 2.75.

    Logistics-Around 2.25, we bought a double mattress which is placed directly on the floor in his room. I co-sleep with DS in his...

    Re: Involution and discomfort

    I agree. This is what I'd do, given the information you've provided:

    1. See endocrinologist and get prolactin test. Pump sparingly if breasts painful in the meantime.

    2. Send a sample of the...

    Re: Stopping day feeds

    As a benchmark, I'll add that DS2.8 nurses probably 5 to 8 times during the day and 2-3 times overnight in addition to his solids. So, lots of nursing. :)

    Re: Stopping day feeds

    Please check out some of my recent posts. My son is 2y8mo and has only truly begun eating more than a bite or two of solids about 2-3 months ago.

    My approach was to support nursing as often as he...
  22. Re: How can I wean my 2.5 year old!?!

    The first thing I'd do is stop giving him alternate milks. If you're nursing at least 3-5 good sessions daily, his dairy needs are covered, and the milks are just crowding out other foods from his...
  23. Re: Does BFing cause tooth decay? How to find pro-BFing dent

    My child's dentist recommended stopping night nursing and I laughed in his face. Literally.

    Poor hygiene, weak enamel, and a sugar-rich diet cause cavities, not breastfeeding. The KellyMom links...
  24. Re: Been advised to stop breastfeeding 2yr3month old daughte

    It sounds like the doctors are presenting their social opinion on weaning and not an informed medical one. I would decline the script for drying up milk.

    The Hippocratic oath states, "first, do no...
  25. Re: 8 Months Pregnant--To Wean or Not to Wean my 22 Month Ol

    I would definitely keep it up. :)
