  1. Re: How old is your toddler and how often do they nurse?

    My DS is almost 17 months. He usually wakes up around 4 am and nurses on and off until he gets up for the day around 7. Then he usually won't nurse again until 4 pm. Though in the past few weeks,...
  2. Re: How do I get my son to sleep instead of BF

    At around 14 months, I wanted my son to be able to fall asleep without nursing too, since the times that it happened by chance, he seemed to sleep longer and more soundly. First we worked on getting...

    Re: is it happening, if not when?

    My son is 16 months old, and within the past month or so, he's cut back a lot. The only nursing session he really insists upon is nursing when he wakes in the morning (usually around 4-6 am). Other...

    Re: Child led weaning/nursing to sleep

    My son is 14 months, and until recently he was nursing to sleep for naps and at night (and during the night). But he's been teething for about a month, and as a result, there were a few nights when...

    Re: Size of finger foods

    Thanks for the tips! I'll try all the suggestions. He really loves all his finger foods lately, so I'd like to find new (and more efficient) ways of introducing them.

    Re: 7 months, where do we go from here?

    I struggled with the issue of balancing solids and breastmilk too. From 6 months until 9 months, my son loved solids, and I worried that he because he loved solids so much, that he wasn't getting...

    Size of finger foods

    I started giving my son some finger foods when he was 8 months old (Cheerios, and fruits and veggies diced up into Cheerio-sized pieces). Now that he's older (almost 11 months), I'm thinking I can...

    Re: Losing interest in solids?

    I just posted about this on another thread too. My son lost interest in solids right before his first teeth appeared. He used to love them, now it's a struggle most days. I just feed him until he's...

    Re: Solids, or lack of!!

    My son popped his first 4 teeth within the past few weeks, and since then he's been refusing most solids. He'll still have a day or two here and there when he'll be happy to eat, but usually he'll...

    Re: What do you think of this?

    My son loves plain whole milk yogurt too - though sometimes I'll mix in a little fruit puree with it, or some mashed bananas. Sometimes I'll sprinkle in a little cinnamon too. I get the big tub of...

    Re: Refusing solids during teething

    I do try to offer more often - he'll take one or two sips, then he's done, ready to move on to something else. He just started crawling, and he's very eager to walk too, so I think between those...

    Re: Food Strike

    I just posted about this issue too. My 10-month-old has been hating solids for the past month or so (since his first teeth started coming in). I'm a little worried about it too - especially since he...

    Refusing solids during teething

    My 10 1/2 month old just started popping his first teeth within the last few weeks (4 all at once - poor guy!). Before that, he loved solids - he'd gobble up everything I gave him, either off a...

    Re: How much solids at 8-10 months?

    That sounds like A LOT of solids to me. My son (8 months old) loves, loves, loves his solids, but even he wouldn't eat that much I don't think. I bf 6-8 times a day, and recently added a lunch of...

    Ick - yes, banana diapers are awful! I freaked the first time - it looked like there were little worm-like things in his diapers (ewww!) - but then realized it was the little seedy strands from...

    Re: best high chair and first food?

    We started with banana (mushed up with a fork then thinned out with some breastmilk) and he loved it. He's had lots of new foods now too (and likes them all), but still seems to love banana most.

    Re: help!

    Wait until you have an 8 month old! I'm so scared to nurse in public lately, because not only will he pop on and off, but he'll lift my shirt way up in the air, wave it around... there's nothing...

    I've only had two periods since my son was born (in early January, then just last week). I'd never thought about the connection, but I definitely noticed a bit of nipple tenderness shortly before and...

    Re: How long?

    My son never spit up a lot (usually only a little if he had the hiccups, or was bounced too much by daddy after eating), but it pretty much stopped altogether by 5 months or so. He's 8 months now,...
  20. Re: About to start cereal. How do I mix w/BM?

    I've never warmed the cereal for my son, and he likes it just fine that way (I give him a little rice cereal or oatmeal every 2 or 3 days). If I have any breastmilk in the fridge, I just mix the cold...

    Re: Starting sweet foods later?

    I started my son on banana, then sweet potato, pear, peas, squash, green beans and peaches. So far, he actually likes peas the best! Surprised me. I don't think it makes much difference whether you...

    Re: I feel like a failure...

    The first 2-3 months are so hard! I remember feeling the same way you do. What helped me was having people tell me that sometimes babies just cry (and it seemed to peak between weeks 4-8 for my son)....

    Re: Will This Turn Into A Habit??

    My son went through his worst fussy period between 5-9 weeks old - so maybe that's what yours is going through now too? During that time, nursing was the only thing that would make him happy. Now (at...

    Re: Chuck the Clock

    It took me a few months to stop looking at the clock. My son was born at 5 lbs 8 ozs. He had dangerously low blood sugar after birth and needed a high-cal formula (which I hated!) in addition to...

    When my son was about 4 months old, he started sleeping longer stretches at night (4-7 hours at least once most nights)... but it didn't last! About a month later (at 5 months old) he started getting...
