  1. Re: Newly Pregnant with 2nd child~need to wean 1st?

    I second reading Adventures in Tandem Nursing. In my case, I decided I wanted to wean DS. But I never really got around to it, because it was winter and he kept getting sick, and I was exhausted and...

    Re: Pressure to wean from hubby

    You know, I don't understand how men think. My DH was also convinced that night weaning would help him get more sleep. I am not sure how he came to this decision since I was handling all of DS's...

    Re: Growth Spurt or Supply Issues?

    Sorry, I shouldn't write posts after midnight. I am 9 weeks pregnant.
  4. Re: How much EBM do you send to daycare for a 16 month old?

    When DS was 15 months, I was still sending 3 3-oz bottles, so 9 oz. As he approached 16 months, he started not finishing 2 of those, so I tried 2 3-oz bottles, and he still wasn't finishing them...

    Growth Spurt or Supply Issues?

    DS is almost 19 months old. He is generally a good eater, with occasional days that he lives on air. He gets 5oz of EBM at day care from my freezer stash each day, nurses at pick up, once in the...
  6. Re: Freezing milk after a few days - is it safe?

    I used to freeze milk that was a few days old and never had a problem. But the other thing that I did was for instance on Wed, I would use any extra Mon milk before using Tues milk. Then on Thurs,...

    Re: Make the Pain Stop

    I don't think so. I don't see anything like that. Heat does help a little bit. (Chocolate seems to help too :eye) This evening, it only hurt while nursing, so hopefully that is a positive sign.

    Make the Pain Stop

    DS is 17 months old and appears to be teething. In the past, I have noticed that his latch tends to get bad when he is teething. It has always corrected itself after a couple of days.

    Re: Baby resisting bottles after vacation

    DS went through something similar when we went on vacation for a week when he was 9 months old, but it wasn't quite a severe. It's been a while, but I think he started taking 9 oz instead of 12. It...

    Re: pumping and security inspections

    My company also does random security inspections. I have only gone through it once while pumping. I made sure to hand my pump bag to the female guard rather than male one. She peaked in, jumped back,...

    Re: talk to me about pump weaning

    I know this is a little late, but I wrote an almost identical post 2 months ago as my DS was turning 1. He was taking 12-15 oz a day, and not eating much solids, and I was pumping 3x a day.

    Re: What does a "good"stash look like?

    I think it really varies from woman to woman what you will need. I had 25 oz in the freezer when I went back to work. I haven't needed it yet. DS is 14 months now.

    Re: Pump is starting to hurt

    I had never heard that. But thank you for posting. I had noticed that the flanges didn't fit the same as they used to, but for some reason it never dawned on me to try another size. After seeing...

    Night weaning without STTN?

    DS is 12 months old and sleeps in a crib in his own room. He has recently dropped from about 5 wakings per night to 3. I always nurse him back to sleep.

    The last few nights, he has been waking as...

    Have you thought about getting a new pediatrician? It sounds like you are getting a lot of advice that does not match how you want to raise your son. I can't imagine feeling anxiety over just having...

    Re: 1 year - no end to pumping in sight

    Actually, no. He reacts to my breastmilk when I have eaten milk or soy. My husband does sometimes add cheese and such to his plate. But I agree, milk is not too hard to avoid. I do miss ice cream,...

    Re: Food into Breast Milk

    I think I read somewhere that it's usually 1-24 hours. With my LO, we have seen him react to something I ate up to 3 days later. Usually he reacts the next day though. We think he had a first hand...

    Re: 1 year - no end to pumping in sight

    The blood and diarrhea appear to have been a milk and soy allergy. The vomiting does not appear to have been a food allergy. I keep pretty detailed food logs for both him and me, and I never saw a...

    DS turns 1 year in a couple of weeks, and I am not sure what to do with pumping.

    Currently, he gets 4-5 bottles (12-15 oz) while I am at work, and I pump 3 times a day to provide that. He is...
