    Re: No Longer Soothed by Nursing?

    That's useful to hear - sounds like it may be a new chapter that we need to find a way to settle into. I feel like I should be seeing it as a good thing to move past nursing to sleep, but losing that...

    No Longer Soothed by Nursing?

    My 15 month old still enjoys nursing - it calms her when she's hurt, and helps her sleep when she is very tired - but at times when she's not exhausted, it doesn't seem to soothe her to sleep the way...

    Re: Pumping…but nothing is coming out

    The more your daughter breastfeeds, the better your supply will be. Right now your body is still trying to figure out how much milk to make, and your daughter will give those cues. If she's drinking...
  4. Re: Best Way to Pump (to build stockpile) and Breastfeed?

    You can also try pumping on one side while baby nurses off of the other side. Awkward but it works! When I first started pumping, this was the only thing that worked for me, in terms of logistics,...

    Re: Sudafed

    Thanks for the suggestions!

    I bought a neti pot the other day with very high hopes, and didn't feel like it was doing much. I only ended up using it twice since it seemed like nothing was...

    Sudafed

    I'm guessing I should steer clear of it?

    I have been having intense sinus pain for close to a week now, and I am getting desperate. My doc suggested that I take it only when things are at their...

    Re: That Moment When...

    That is a relief to hear! I guess I can be a little less paranoid for now.

    She is definitely teething - she's had a couple of molars slowly coming in for the past two months.

    That Moment When...

    ...you realize you have a plugged duct!

    My LO is almost 15 months, and we've been nursing about 4 times a day for a little over a month since I pump weaned, and I thought maybe this kind of thing...

    Re: Handling requests to nurse in public

    Right - definitely not a weaning conversation. I only recently started reading/posting here when my daughter turned 1, as I have no plans to wean and thought hearing others' experiences/support would...

    Re: Handling requests to nurse in public

    Those last two replies were a bit harsh! It's between a mom and a child when they are going to nurse, and it's disheartening to feel like no matter what you do, you'll have someone condemning your...

    Re: Handling requests to nurse in public

    That was a great, thoughtful follow-up that expresses a lot of the big-picture challenges involved with nursing a toddler! My LO is way younger, but I can already relate to bits and pieces. It sounds...

    Re: vitamin question

    At 14 months, I've started cutting back. I still take them but not every day - a few times a week as I remember just to fill the gaps. I'd probably get more if I ran out, just because while we're not...
  13. Re: BF my 2.5yo and unable to get pregnant

    Did they check your prolactin levels? If they are still high it could impact fertility. I was extremely regular but had high prolactin before getting pregnant with my daughter, and didn't get...
  14. Re: work travel around age 2 - what will it look like?

    I worry about this too! I've been lucky that I haven't had to travel overnight yet, but I imagine that it will happen sometime before she's two. I've never not been home at bedtime to nurse her to...

    Re: 12 Months and Deciding What's Next

    Thanks - she has her one year appointment next week and I believe they will test her iron levels. I'll look into the Floradix if her levels are on the low end - I know the more standard stuff can be...

    Re: 12 Months and Deciding What's Next

    Great advice! I'll see how the pumping goes once I start tapering down. Once a day a lunch might be doable for a while longer - we'll see.

    As for the fertility stuff - you're probably right that...

    Re: 12 Months and Deciding What's Next

    Thanks for the reply - that is really helpful. Does her daycare balk at her not having milk? My husband said, half-jokingly, that somebody would call social services if we don't give her milk.

    12 Months and Deciding What's Next

    My daughter just had her first birthday, and I am agonizing over what to do about breastfeeding into the future!

    Currently, she breastfeeds when I'm at home, and I pump three times a day while I'm...
