    Re: Feel rejected by by son

    Hey momma, I do not have direct advice, but wanted to offer encouragement. Drinking from a bottle is much easier than nursing, and your LO has most likely just decided that the bottle is easier. ...

    Re: I am going insane -- is my LC crazy?

    I want to chime and and point out that the first 6 weeks or so of a baby's life nursing can be demanding, but it gets soooo much easier after that. It may seem daunting right now, but if you can get...
  3. Re: Daycare pushing for more bottles / low pumping productio

    PP have great advice. I would like to add a comment about daycare wanting you to maintain their schedule.. that is beyond ludicrous. Daycare should be more interested in mimicking YOUR schedule if...

    Re: Night waking and nursing

    I understand completely :) Being a parent is inherently stressful. After all, you are responsible for a little person. Don't beat yourself up too much (I say this as I remind myself of the same...

    Re: Night waking and nursing

    I thought I would chime in as my son is close in age to yours. I think another poster hit the nail on the head about sleep... society has a very skewed idea of what normal sleep habits for babies...
  6. Re: What is "normal" for nighttime waking?

    I agree with PP. My first woke every 1-2 hours for long time.. I think it was about 18 months or longer? My second gave me nice long stretches of 4-5 hours for a couple of months and now sleeps...

    Re: Washable nursing/breast pads

    I agree with PP. Also, I made my own reusable pads. It was super cheap, but the cutting out part was a little time consuming. The good part is that you can customize the thickness for your needed...

    Re: FTM EBW questioning myself

    I'm a little late to this party, but wanted to offer some encouragement. When I was pregnant with DS1 I was so focused on the pregnanacy and birth I gave so little thought to what it would actually...

    Re: Preparing baby for pump weaning

    djs.mom is exactly right. I would, at this point, start offering 2-3 meals a day and snacks. If you want to prepare him for no more bottles, then that routine will need to be replaced with a...

    Re: Night Nursing, too much?

    My DS1 would nurse every couple of hours at night until he was almost 2. He ate solids well and still nursed the same during the day. DS2 is nursing a little less at night and eating solids about...

    Re: How does your baby "ask" to nurse?

    I was just thinking Saturday that my current nursling doesn't really give me a good clear sign like my oldest one did. DS1 would "pant" at me. No clue where he got it from but he started around 6...

  14. Re: Toddler Toys EVERYWHERE! ***for New Beginnings***

    Great idea. We do this for holidays for DH and I, and occassionally for the older kids. But really, we could apply it to any age. I'm keeping that in my "file" for this year.
  15. Re: Toddler Toys EVERYWHERE! ***for New Beginnings***

    We have approached this pretty simply. We keep large toys to a minimum (and no LARGE toys in the house), and use baskets, ottomans and such to corral all of the toys. I regularly go through a toy...

    Re: Weaned? A Little sad

    I agree, it's a very emotional process. I had originally decided that I did not want to tandem nurse, but just kept putting off weaning. We scaled it back, but just couldn't drop that last session....

    Weaned? A Little sad

    So my 2.5 yr old is basically weaned. We had cut down to only the morning session by the time I had DS2, but he kept waking in the middle of then night thinking it was morning and asking to nurse. ...

    Re: Help - No dirty diapers

    Even then that sounds like bad advice. My DS1 went 14 days or so without a poop. He usually followed those up with massive poops too. lol
