    Re: Some advice

    My son is 2y9mo, cosleeping and breastfeeding ~6-8x/day lately. We just traveled to visit my parents, who have a house almost 4 times larger than our loft and a large yard and pool. DS has been...
  2. Re: How did you get your toddler in his/her own bed?

    My son is now 2y9mo. Around 2.25, we bought a double mattress and put it directly on the floor in his room. I nurse him to sleep around 10pm, spend a few hours with DH, then rejoin DS for the night...

    Re: Need Advice-baby won't eat solids

    My son ate maybe 1Tbsp of food per day other than breastmilk until he was 18 mos, and he only started being willing to eat meals around 2.5. He's now 2.75 and is still probably 40-50% breastfed.

    Re: thoughts on breastfeeding

    Well said. Life gets so much more fluid (pardon the pun) with an older toddler, particularly.

    I'm nursing DS2y9m and am much more relaxed about our nursing relationship. He can eat meals and...
  5. Re: weaning a toddler that has history of delayed eating sol

    I'd urge you to look back on some of my recent posts, as my son only really started eating more than a few tablespoons of solid food around 2.5. Really...2.5. He's now one of the heartiest, least...

    Re: Learning to Trust

    Frequent nursing and pretty, comfy bras will be your best friend.

    Re: Learning to Trust

    My best "trick" was to nurse frequently--every 1.5-2ish hours and to co-sleep. Knowing DS had full access helped me accept that my body was getting sufficient signals to do its thing.

    That was...
  9. Re: What happens if you don't night wean?

    I hope you don't mind my chiming in, as my son is just shy of 2.75.

    Logistics-Around 2.25, we bought a double mattress which is placed directly on the floor in his room. I co-sleep with DS in his...

    Re: Involution and discomfort

    I agree. This is what I'd do, given the information you've provided:

    1. See endocrinologist and get prolactin test. Pump sparingly if breasts painful in the meantime.

    2. Send a sample of the...

    Re: Stopping day feeds

    As a benchmark, I'll add that DS2.8 nurses probably 5 to 8 times during the day and 2-3 times overnight in addition to his solids. So, lots of nursing. :)

    Re: Stopping day feeds

    Please check out some of my recent posts. My son is 2y8mo and has only truly begun eating more than a bite or two of solids about 2-3 months ago.

    My approach was to support nursing as often as he...
  13. Re: How can I wean my 2.5 year old!?!

    The first thing I'd do is stop giving him alternate milks. If you're nursing at least 3-5 good sessions daily, his dairy needs are covered, and the milks are just crowding out other foods from his...
  14. Re: Does BFing cause tooth decay? How to find pro-BFing dent

    My child's dentist recommended stopping night nursing and I laughed in his face. Literally.

    Poor hygiene, weak enamel, and a sugar-rich diet cause cavities, not breastfeeding. The KellyMom links...
  15. Re: Been advised to stop breastfeeding 2yr3month old daughte

    It sounds like the doctors are presenting their social opinion on weaning and not an informed medical one. I would decline the script for drying up milk.

    The Hippocratic oath states, "first, do no...

    I'm using a dataset from the 2012 Canadian Community Health Surveys, which is the major input into our Health Canada data (the equivalent of the US National Institutes of Health). The cumulative...

    Re: Pregnant and nursing

    Just a thought--and probably an OT one--if VBAC applies to you. (If not, then stop here with my saying: CONGRATULATIONS!)

    If I were giving birth again, given my last experience with an emergency...

    Re: Anyone nursing a 4 year old?

    No advice, as I'm only nursing a 2.5yo, but I have lots of sympathy and love. Hugs to you both. You're an amazing mama!
  20. Re: How often does your 2-3 year old nurse?

    We're at basically the same frequency at 2.5. I suspect LLL mothers' children represent the right end of the social distribution as cultural norms impede child-led weaning, but are on target...

    I love that m11612!

    Today DS2.5 learned that not all mothers nurse their children or cosleep. He had a horrified expression when he discovered that fact, ran over to nurse, and then said, "I have...
  22. Re: Underweight 2 year old. Allergies? Mal-absorption?

    Hunger is hunger. It's a signal the body needs food to grow and develop. If I woke hungry, I'd eat!

    If you want to nurse at night for hunger, go ahead! My DS (2y7mo) still nurses about 3 times at...

    Re: want to make it to two

    Congrats on a year of nursing!

    In response to your question, I don't know that there is a "typical" breastfed child. Some, like mine (now 2y7mo), are very slow to solids and are lactivores to a...

    Re: night weaning backfired

    If her morning waking time was tenable when she nursed at 2am, and she was getting enough total sleep then, I'd just revert to that schedule and try again in a few months.

    Also, if she's like my...
