  1. Co-sleeping and nursing 2-year-old...should I wean?

    Hi ladies,

    I just want to apologize for posting the 1,000th thread asking a similar question, but some of the posts were a little older and I didn't know if anyone would respond.

    My son turned...
  2. Re: Want to wean 2-year-old co-sleeper

    Honestly, I've been wanting to wean for about 6 months but haven't so as not to disturb the peace. Between being bitten, him tweaking the opposite nipple while nursing, flip-flopping over me,...
  3. Want to wean 2-year-old co-sleeper

    Hi all,

    I might have the opportunity to go away for a few days late this summer with my husband. This sounds fantastic, except for one thing: my 2-year-old still nurses to sleep at night and...
  4. Re: No schedule...setting us up for misery??

    Thank you all...I would hate to stop co-sleeping right now- it sounds funny but I take comfort having his little fingers holding mine at night. Plus he is so cuddly after "tubby time"...hard to...
  5. No schedule...setting us up for misery??

    I took my little man to the pedi for his 4 month checkup last week and she was a little shocked that we have zero schedule at all (as far as scheduled naps and feedings). We do have a bedtime...
  6. EBF, 6-wks PP, Mirena insertion, anyone BDTD?

    Hi ladies,

    This is my second Mirena IUD but my first was about 11 years ago, so I'm basically starting all over again.

    Just had the Mirena inserted this morning and I've been having some...
  7. Re: Need advice on spacing out feedings, co-sleeping.

    I don't blame you!! When we returned all the ones DS didn't like, we bought a crapload of Nuks. Still have the receipt in case we have to try yet another brand!!
  8. Re: Need advice on spacing out feedings, co-sleeping.

    MumtoThomas, you might have had the Soothie if they gave it to your son at the hospital (just a guess). We tried that one, to no avail. DS seems to like the orthodontic ones, which we only found...
  9. Re: Need advice on spacing out feedings, co-sleeping.

    Ladies, I love all of you. I don't even know why I post questions on other sites (ahem, Babycenter)...I always get THE BEST advice and the most support from this one. God love every single one of...
  10. Need advice on spacing out feedings, co-sleeping.

    Hi mamas...

    Took DS to the pedi yesterday for his one month check-up, and accidentally admitted that we are co-sleeping (I hadn't told her before because I didn't want to hear the lecture). She...
  11. Re: Is there an end to...well...endless feedings??

    I honestly am dying to introduce a bottle at this point, just so my husband can join in on the fun. I know it's a little early for that, but it would be nice so that I can get through a whole shower...
  12. Is there an end to...well...endless feedings??

    My DS is just over 2 weeks, and I swear since we left the hospital I have been feeding him nonstop. There have been a couple of nights where he has gone 3-4 hours between feedings, but of course I...
  13. Re: Second post, LOTS of questions, new to BFing, 6-day old

    Maybe this is just my hormones talking, but I could cry right now at how helpful you ladies are. This is such new territory to me (BFing) and I feel like every minute there is a new "what if." You...
  14. Second post, LOTS of questions, new to BFing, 6-day old baby

    Ok, here we go. I have found this site to be so much more supportive and knowledgeable than any other, so I feel confident asking all my stupid questions now. Please excuse my obvious cluelessness in...
  15. Re: Sore nipple - ok to pump one side?

    That's ok, I just wonder if these sessions are normal. He will only nap in my arms with my nipple in his mouth, and if it falls out he wakes up and starts rooting all over again. Sometimes he is...
  16. Re: Sore nipple - ok to pump one side?

    I love that position- it is the only way my husband and I get any sleep, since baby only falls asleep at the breast. The pain has started to subside a little, and my lanolin just arrived so I'm going...
  17. Re: Sore nipple - ok to pump one side?

    His tongue extends below the gum line. I notice the pain much more at the beginning of a session and it typically subsides by the end. If he goes a couple of hours without nursing on that side (which...
  18. Re: Sore nipple - ok to pump one side?

    It's not really more misshapen than the right one...sort of just a little elongated and flattened out, but the right one looks like that too and I have no pain on that side.
  19. Re: Sore nipple - ok to pump one side?

    Thanks ladies. :)

    When he latches onto my left side, it feels like a stabbing, pinching pain. I saw my doctor yesterday and she showed me how to improve the latch, so I have been working at it,...
  20. Sore nipple - ok to pump one side?

    New mom and totally inexperienced BF'er! :)

    I am having serious pain in one of my nipples due to poor latch- can I pump that side and nurse LO on the other until the pain gets better? If I do...
