    Re: Still asking

    Re: Still asking

    :hug It's been 7 months since DD weaned (and it was totally mutual) and she still asks from time to time. She went a couple months before she started asking, though, and by then she had completely...

    Re: nursing at night

    My DD (now 4.5) was a constant night nurser. She would ONLY sleep while latched on, and I finally night weaned her at 2. She STILL needs lots of night time parenting - it's just how she is. When I...

    Re: Logistics of BF and Babywearing

    I'm a big chested mama, too, and I always found it challenging (at best) to nurse in a wrap. BUT, nursing in a one shouldered carrier such as a ring sling, rebozo, or pouch was easy for me. You can...

    Re: Baby won't eat solids for me

    Re: dry nursing?

    Yes. I'm pretty certain that I was empty for the last nine months my daughter nursed. (She nursed until she was nearly 4.) she would go days or even a week in between sessions and I would feel no...

    You are not alone! My daughter just weaned in October - a month shy of her 4th birthday. Despite having nursed for nearly 4 years, and being ready to move on from this stage in so many ways, I still...

    Re: Senna and breastfeeding

    Re: It's been a week!

    It was kind of gradual. Some time around the time she was 3 and a few months, she tapered off to nursing twice a day from 4-6 times. Then slowly after that she would skip a boring session or a night...

    Re: It's been a week!

    Re: It's been a week!

    It's been two weeks this time, and while she's made casual mention of having milk a couple times, she's not been adamant, so I've politely declined. The last time I nursed her was two Sundays ago,...

    Re: eating while bf?

    :its with the PPs, and if you notice that your baby is gassy after you eat spicy foods, you can always cut back then. I always ate whatever I wanted and never had any problems.
