    Re: Weaning a 2 1/2 year old

    Good for your DH! It's wonderful that he is showing this kind of attentiveness and flexibility -- I guess he saw how much this means to you. And I'm so glad for you that it hasn't ended quite yet. ...

    Re: Child-led Night Weaning?

    We decided to night-wean at about 26 months, after I decided I just desperately needed the sleep. We adapted the Dr. Jay Gordon method. First we decided he could nurse at bedtime and then again...

    Re: Weaning a 2 1/2 year old

    Just saw your last post -- oh, I know I'll be very sad if my DS stops that suddenly! Hugs to you, but glad that he's so thrilled with this new stage.

    Re: Weaning a 2 1/2 year old

    Hi there -- just wanted to let you know that I'm also in the exact same situation. 31-month-old, nurses bedtime and on waking, still sleeps with us, we're about to try to transition him to his own...

    Re: How often does your lo nurse?

    We're at 22 months and nursing morning, bedtime, and 1-3 times a night. We also nursed at naptime until he started daycare in August; now he nurses naps only on weekends. He definitely still really...

    :welcome I'm glad you've found this forum. If you read through some of the threads around here, you'll find lots of mamas who are happily breastfeeding well past age one (e.g., check out the "How...

    Re: nursing to sleep - teeth concerns

    If you're brushing his teeth 2-3 times a day, and especially before the last nursing of the day, he should be okay -- recent studies seem to be showing that breastmilk in itself doesn't cause decay,...

    Re: the big one!

    :lol That's really hilarious, Laura. Do you think he associates "big" with having more milk? Jeremy now always asks for the "other nu-nu" whenever the flow slows down, so I know that he's looking...

    Re: do you still have a freezer stash?

    I stopped building a stash when I dropped my evening extra pumping session at about 12 months. I still had tons of milk in the freezer but ended up throwing it all out as it was too old (+3 months)...

    Re: How long have you been

    We're at 22 months, still nursing morning, bedtime, and a couple of times at night. I plan to nurse until at least 2 and then we'll play it by ear. :)

    Re: weekend nursing -- low supply?

    Yeah, its possible, I did get my period this weekend, so that may have contributed to the supply drop -- but this has been happening just about every weekend so it seems like a pattern. I usually...

    Re: weekend nursing -- low supply?

    A snack before bedtime on weekends is a good idea, the only problem is that we eat dinner right before bath/bed anyway, so there's not much time for a snack. I guess I could offer him a treat like...

    Re: weekend nursing -- low supply?

    I know that pumping would bring it back up, but I pumped until he was about 18 months, and I'm done now. There's no way I'm going back to regular pumping, except maybe if we're going out for the...

    weekend nursing -- low supply?

    I've been having a frustrating time trying to nurse on weekends. On weekdays, we're now down to just morning and nights. He dropped his naptime nursing session when he started daycare in August,...

    Re: Am I giving her too little solids?

    I agree with the PPs, when your DD turns one, you should probably switch to offering solids before nursing, but don't stress it too much at this age. My DS wasn't eating much solids around this...
  16. Re: How big of a deal is it to miss a feeding....

    I agree, don't worry about it, especially if she doesn't eat that much at that feeding anyway.

    Re: Thank You For This Year

    Happy birthday Olivia, and congratulations Mama! I remember how emotional -- and proud -- I was when DS turned one. I hope you all enjoy the day!!!
  18. Re: For those of you who have LOs in child care

    I'm in central NJ and I'm paying $220 a weel at an infant/toddler center (relatively small scale, 16 children total). That's considered a very good deal in this area.
  19. Re: White Spots on Teeth- Should I night wean??

    I'll be interested to hear what she says -- we have a couple of white marks near the bottom as well. Could you update after you talk to her? TIA!
  20. Re: ear infection/nursing strike: should I pump?

    Happily, Jeremy seems back to normal! The fever finally broke yesterday and while his appetite has been slow to return, today he seemed to be eating more solids and nursed like usual at nap and...
  21. Re: White Spots on Teeth- Should I night wean??

    If the spots went away, I wouldn't worry too much, since it sounds like you are being very conscientious with tooth care. How old is your DS? At around 12 months we saw some white marks on Jeremy's...
  22. Re: ear infection/nursing strike: should I pump?

    Thanks, I did decide to pump last night, mostly on my right side (which he's been refusing), and I'm glad I did as he refused any suggestion of that side last night. Or rather, once or twice he...

    Re: Changing Peds?

    Normally I'd say stick with the ped if you like them otherwise and shrug off the bad breastfeeding advice. But the part about stopping nursing during the flu is worrisome, kind of a red flag. It's...
  24. ear infection/nursing strike: should I pump?

    Right now Jeremy has an ear infection (daycare :sigh ), and he has been eating and nursing very little for the past three days. Yesterday I took him to the ped, who put him on antibiotics, although...

    That's a beautiful story! I agree with the PPs in that your experiences and stories have helped me a LOT. So congrats and thanks! :)
