    My son weaned after he turned 2.5 years. It was a...

    I used a carrier that was a long piece of cloth with a ring. I forget what it's called now :P It worked well for me as it allows me to carry baby in many different positions, and continued to serve...

    Re: new Mum at a loss!

    Hi, just wanted to chime in and say you're doing a great job! It does take a while for baby and mummy's body to get in sync, and when they do then things change again! :lol

    Re: Cracked/Sore NIpples

    I had really sore nipples for 6 weeks even though baby's latch was ok. I think my nipples were just not used to being worked so hard!

    I used Lansinoh (medical grade lanolin) before and after each...

    Re: C-Section Moms

    I had drug-free normal labour, then an emergency C-section. They gave me baby in the recovery the moment I came to. Baby started nursing right away. No problems.

    I kept him with me always unless...

    Re: Just can't produce milk?

    Six weeks could be time for a growth spurt when baby wants to drink much more than usual.

    Remember that baby is the most efficient at removing milk from the breast, and the more baby empties the...

    Re: Sleeping Through the Night

    My baby slept thru the night after he turned 1. Just before that, he was waking so often I wondered if I would ever make it! :lol But it just happened automatically. One of their milestones I hear.

    Re: 5 month old is constipated?

    Breastfed babies are rarely, if ever, constipated. Constipation is when it hurts them to poo, and when you can pick up the pellets of poo with your fingers. I second the other posters' suggestion...

    Re: Every 3 OR 4 hours?

    Agree with the previous posts. Watch the baby, not the clock. Sometimes baby will want to eat more (growth spurts) and sometimes less. Just like adults. The body will adjust the supply according to...
  17. Re: When do I start more than one solid a day?

    Usually, for the first year of baby's life, his main nutrition comes from mother's milk. The solids are for experimentation and learning.

    The baby-led approach says that as long as baby is able to...

    Fussy at the breast sounds like some kind of discomfort while nursing. Could she be starting to teeth? Sometimes it hurts when they suck if they are teething? I know my son started drooling and...

    Re: sore nipple

    If it's sore, it should be a clogged duct.

    Sometimes it goes away on its own because baby is able to 'unplug' the clog as you carry on breastfeeding as usual.

    But if it doesn't go away, I...
