    Re: Wisdom teeth removal and a nursling

    I'm a nurse, and this pump and dump for 24 hours advice is one of my personal pet peeves. They're just trying to cover themselves. I vote you look at kellymom.com. And especially at the general...

    Re: Twiddling

    I think part of what is annoying about twiddling is related to the fact that it's being done by a toddler. A lot of the cute little things my kiddos did at the beginning became annoying once they...
  3. Re: Is it true that BF babies have a "weaker" gut?

    Maybe it's just because formula fed babies are more likely to be constipated. . .:lol

    Re: 15 mo old still night nursing once

    That 4-6 am feed was the last one my son gave up before he weaned. It really is a great feed, it turns out, because now he won't sleep in. My daughter nurses back to sleep at that time too, and...
  5. Re: You know you're nursing a toddler when...

    My sweet 15 month old is not very verbal, but she gets her point across. Lately she has been very single minded while nursing. I nurse her on the couch after I get home from work at night, and she...

    Re: Do you think I'll need to pump?

    I am nursing a 15 month old who also nurses about the same number of times per day. I work 12 hour shifts 3 days per week, and I'm pretty full when I get home, but not uncomfortable (yet) most days....

    Re: Antibiotics + Breast Milk

    Just gave some medicine to my LO. She is awful to give meds to. The best trick we've come up with is to aim for the back inside of her cheek. We also wait until she is at the end of a scream...

    Re: Night Torture! Is this normal?

    Found it! That was easier than I thought it would be. . .

    Re: Night Torture! Is this normal?

    Agree with other posters, and adding one thought while trying to protect myself from a crazy 3 year old :eye. . .

    You are not a pacifier! Remember, it is not possible for a baby to use you as a...

    Re: Moving DD to her own bed

    My 3 year old sleeps in his own bed (which is adjacent to our bed in our room). He goes down all by himself after Daddy reads him a story and gives him a 3 minute snuggle. We sit out on the couch...
  11. Re: Desperate: 3-Yr.-Old ADDICTED to my Breasts

    I so feel your frustration! My 3 year old is now weaned. His favorite during that process was rubbing my arm--usually sticking his hand into my sleeve to do so. It drove me to a very crazy place. ...

    Here again!

    I can't believe how quickly a year has passed. My daughter just turned 1 on 12/21. I am proud and a little sad at the same time. My son is 3. I've been breast feeding straight for over 3 years...
  13. Re: You know you're nursing a toddler when...

    My 3 year old is weaned now, but hasn't been for long. The other day he was playing with his Thomas the Tank Engine trains. "Look mom!" he says, "the big Thomas is nursing the little Thomas." Who...
  14. Re: Help with supply and when to pump

    I agree with pp. It's fine to offer the second side. If he's hungry, he'll eat. If not, he won't. It sounds like you make plenty of milk for your baby and that he's healthy and growing well. You...
  15. Re: dd refusing to nurse at night... strike?

    You sound so frustrated. That would be really hard to deal with. Is there any chance that the house is just too busy for her taste at bedtime? She is about the right age to be really distractable....
  16. Re: Help - 8 mo old's latch is so irritating, I'm ready to give up

    It happens to me when my daughter is teething. and at the end of each nursing session, she gives me a little toothy "nip" right on the end of my nipple. Ouch! I feel your pain. I'm sorry. Hang...

    Re: Why should I stop night feeds?

    My 24 pound 9 month old daughter wanted me to chime in and say "hi" to another well fed, night nursing little girl! I work, and night feeds keep us both sane. (Kept me sane with my little boy when...

    Re: Late Bloomer?

    I have not had the same experience, but I do work with lots of newborns and new moms. One of the IBCLC's at my work (also a LLL Leader and good friend) often suggests trying a SNS. They can be...

    Re: 3 wk old biting?

    I have the same issue--though no longer a problem as my dd is 9 mos old and my ds is 3 years and weaned. I didn't feel let down with my ds at all. I learned when my let down happened because he...

    Re: Start Pumping Day 5, Not

    Not that you don't already have plenty to do. . . lots of time skin to skin with your baby, whether he wants to latch on and feed or not. And yes, every 2 hours for about 15 minutes. See an IBCLC...
  21. Re: Do you have a nursing necklace you like?

    I have a great nursing necklace. It's from laughing starfish jewelry. I think the addy is www.laughingstarfish.com. Only trouble is, my dd loves it TOO much. I can't put her down if I'm wearing...

    Re: I can't get him to take a bottle

    Not to make it more complicated, but have you tasted your milk to make sure it tastes ok? I have lots of lipase, so my pumped milk tastes AWFUL unless I scald it before storing. Some women can wait...

    Re: Breastfeeding to Sleep?

    Re: Books for expectant mommas

    At least for me, age didn't slow me down. I'm 37 (not old), and had a beautiful, drug-free birth with my second. In the hospital with an awesome ob, who just happens to be male. Much better than...
