    Great news...I have definitely started to "dry up". Bad news...I have a couple of plugged ducts. I guess this is what I get for waiting too long to pump a bit off. Now what do I do? Will the...

    My son is now almost 13 months. As soon as we hit the 12 month mark I started working on the weaning process. I could hardly stand it any longer and can't wait to put that pump away. Ill feelings...

    Re: Pump weaning :(

    If it's an infection you can start to wean now, but if it's a plugged duct only then keep on pumping until it resolves. This is how I've been weaning and I've been pumping exclusively four times a...

    So it's been 72 hours since I last pumped (and I was only down to one pumping/day about 4 oz total), how long will it take to dry up? Any suggestions on how to handle the engorgement? I have been...

    Re: what do you put in the bottle/sippy cup?

    Re: Best way to wean?

    If you're still breastfeeding the other meals of the day and it's just the one meal at daycare the allergy issue shouldn't be one! The antibodies that you are giving to her during the meals are...

    Re: Reaction to Milk?

    Glad to hear the rice milk is working for you. There is one more thing to consider....he might be just lactost intolerant. You can try lactose-free milk to see if he can tolerate the milk too. But...
  10. Re: Baby refusing bottle...but time to wean!!

    Since she's 10 1/2 months you may not want to go through the bottle route, but if you do, then try lots of different bottles/nipples. Sometimes it takes a cart full just find the right one. That...

    Re: comfort booby?

    This may not be the answer you're hoping for (because it just replaces one comfort measure with another), but my son has a lovely/cuddly thing that is his thing. It's like a soft, silky bear...

    Re: I know im going to get alot of grief but....

    You may have already tried this, but I thought I'd put it out there, just in case. Have you tried having someone else give her the bottle when you're out of the house and away? And that person is...

    Re: Final feeding, now what?

    this is for gearhartsx4.....you probably can't get much out because you are so engorged. At least for me it takes a couple of days (3-4) for my body to adjust. I was pumping 4 times a day and last...

    Weaning to what?

    Hello all! I am looking for some suggestions on how to wean my son and what to wean him too. Here's the situation. He self-weaned (yes, I am completely positive it was not a strike, I lived on...
  15. Re: 10 mo baby and decreasing feeding frequency and length

    I haven't had to supplement with formula yet, but am probably going down that route. So far I have been able to keep up with some very vigorous pumping. When he doesn't want to nurse I have broken...

    Sorry, I should have added that before determing that my son was on the path to weaning my LC, ped and LLL consult suggested that the following could be reasons for his decreased nursing (in addition...

    Hi, wanted to let you know that I've been going through the same thing with my 9.5 mo for the last 4 weeks. I was thinking it was a nursing strike, but perhaps it is weaning after all. I've tried...
