  1. Re: Weaning -- what's the next after don't offer don't refus

    Update: not only did the nursing taper off slightly (ever so slightly, but it's enough because...) the kid started sleeping through the night and walking in the same week. Of course "through the...
  2. Re: Weaning -- what's the next after don't offer don't refus

    That's helpful! Thanks. I just got her hooked on a lovie a couple weeks ago & while she likes it, I'm not sure it's giving her comfort yet. But it's a first step.

    We also got a new sippy cup that...
  3. Re: Weaning -- what's the next after don't offer don't refus

    Thanks, alphamom.
    Typical nap time: we get in the big bed (at bedtime we nurse in a chair & I lay her in her bed after about an hour)...
    Back to naptime...
    We both get in the big bed. We nurse...
  4. Weaning -- what's the next after don't offer don't refuse?

    My 18 mo old nurses all the time. If I count I get irritated so I'm not sure, but I bet it's 12 or more times a day. We've been doing don't offer, don't refuse for months. To be honest, I've been...
  5. Re: Night nursing a kid with teeth

    Update: 3 days in to my period my supply is back to normal (I think). I took some fenugreek over the past few days, too, which may have helped. I agree that whatever "latch issues" we may have been...
  6. Re: Night nursing a kid with teeth

    On non-nurse-all-night nights I'm able to sit up, get her really well nursed, lay her down and go back to sleep. But lately <more on that> she nurses, I lay her down and then she continues to want...
  7. Re: Night nursing a kid with teeth

    Colomom, I think you're exactly right. Her lazy night latch is only now a problem with those darn top teeth. AND I had a little bleb. AND her even-more-than-normal nursing through the night lately....
  8. Re: Night nursing a kid with teeth

    Ideas? :/
  9. Re: Nursing to Sleep and Night Weaning

    Everybody suggests Dr Jay Gordon's gentle night weaning plan, but I'm following with interest to see if there are other suggestions. You've got a lucky boy to have a mama who is thinking ahead :)

  10. Night nursing a kid with teeth

    Talk to me about getting a good latch with teeth. My 14 m.o. has 4 top teeth now & her latch is less good. But during the day I can focus on latch basics & though I getting tooth impressions on my...
  11. Re: 13 month old nurses a million times a day

    Sonogirl, this sounds about right. Let me tell you, it's SO encouraging to hear I'm not the only one! I really think she'd be latched just about all day if I'd let her. And because I'm mostly a SAHM,...
  12. Re: 13 month old nurses a million times a day

    Oh gosh, rucciccio, I'm so sorry about your pregnancy loss. What an emotionally complicated experience. So many of us have been there, which only allows us to know that no one has been exactly where...
  13. Re: 13 month old nurses a million times a day

    It's so nice to hear I'm not alone! I definitely have a smaller capacity – she nursed every 1-2 hours before solids. I guess I'm wondering when solids will start to make some significant portion of...
  14. 13 month old nurses a million times a day

    My lovely, great-gaining 13 month old is an avid nurser. She nurses probably 8-10 times a day and (I'm kind of embarrassed to admit) through both naps and from 3-6am many nights. It's good. Sometimes...
  15. Re: Help my 11.5 mo old is biting when latching on

    My one year old occasionally nips me just as she's latching on. What's worked for us is to make sure that she is positioned well below my nipple so that she has to tip her head way back and reach up...
  16. Re: Hand pump or hand expressing

    Thanks, folks!
    Tclynx, I'm not really looking to increase supply & I did do mega-pumping when my baby was new, but now I'm just hoping to maintain the trickle I have in my left breast (and insure...
  17. Re: Hand pump or hand expressing

    3littlesprouts, you have me thinking I might not have my technique exactly right -- there's definitely areola involved here. I might need to check YouTube to get some tips!
  18. Re: Hand pump or hand expressing

    A bowl definitely beats the pump flange! Thanks. Now any thoughts about how to catch all the dribbles? I'm only pumping about 1/2 oz from that breast at night and it's not really coming out in...
  19. Hand pump or hand expressing

    Hi! I'm an infrequent pumper, but as my 1 year old sleeps longer stretches at night I've been pumping on my low-performing side to try to maintain a supply. I have a Pump In Style but it's not nearly...
  20. Re: my baby eats a lot at night every 45 minutes. he is 10,

    Oh mama. I remember those days. 10 weeks is so hard. Waking to eat every 45 minutes is exhausting, to be sure, but not unusual. You're doing a great job of responding to your baby's needs. Our milk...

    Re: Sometimes I hate nursing

    If nursing to sleep is the problem, can you use a little nursing as part of the wind down, but not as the last step?

    Of course, if anyone has ideas about what to substitute as a last step...I'm...
  22. Re: 5 month old + I have hives while breastfeeding. Anyone e

    Sometimes I get hives from warm sweatiness (actually I get hives at the drop of a hat, but this warm sweatiness seems most relevant here). If I put a blanket between baby & me while nursing it takes...
  23. Re: Too Many Vitamins - Do I need to pump and dump?

    I bet the infant risk hotline can help with this (I really doubt you would have to, but that's a baseless hunch) -- but if you do bottles of pumped milk, you could also dilute the extra-vitamin-milk...
  24. Re: Very rapid weight loss while nursing

    I was also going to mention thyroid issues -- but Mommal beat me to it. My thyroid is only now settling down at 1 year ppd. From what I understand, it's not all that uncommon and pretty easy to...
  25. Re: New and desperate--waking every hour

    Oh, this sounds so hard! You are in the trenches, Mama. For us, 8 months was the very worst because I couldn't see the light at the end of the tunnel. She didn't sleep and didn't sleep and didn't...
