    Re: Why isn't he napping?

    My daughter tried to stop her napping at about the same age (she's 5 1/2 now). While I didn't force her to go to sleep, I made her stay in her bed and allowed her to "read" her books. Usually, I'd...

    Re: Best supplementation for 1 yo?

    One more thing that we use is Coconut Juice. It's very good and milk can sometimes become too much.

    We use coconut juice by O.N.E you can get it at any health food store.

    Re: Best supplementation for 1 yo?

    I had to supplement my son because of being preggers. I use either Almond Milk or Oat Milk (he prefers Oat Milk).

    I would really advise staying away from cow's milk. Cow's milk is notorious for...
  4. Re: Weaning a co-sleeping 18mo from night feedings - can it be done?

    I weaned my DD when she was 18 months. She was practically nursing all night long and I couldn't function. I got a calendar and decorated it on the day when we'd all start sleeping thru the night. ...

    Re: First time mom going crazy...

    I'm so sorry you're having this issue. OALD is never fun in the beginning (although baby will be more able to handle it without issue as he gets older). What always worked for me is pulling baby...

    Re: how long did you nurse

    I nursed my daughter for 27 months. I would have gone longer, but lost my supply (I think she was mainly comfort suckling and not really full out nursing).

    My son is 14 months and still going,...

    Re: DH's ultimatum

    It's totally possible. I do it with my son (but mainly because he sleeps better in his own space). Although, I do bring him to bed if I need to.

    I don't remember how old you said your daughter...

    Re: HELP, my new born baby doesn't tinkle

    Oh, you weren't stupid...you simply didn't know.

    Some babies are just sleepy babies. My son had no real interest in nursing for the first 24-36 hours after birth. He just wanted to sleep. Then,...

    Re: Taking turns on each breast per feeding?

    Neither of my kids would ever allow me to pull them off to switch sides. They would start screaming so loud that it would take a while to calm them enough to nurse. I just fed them off of one...

    Re: Plugged Duct?!

    I would be a bit more concerned with the swelling of the lymph nodes. You do have those in your breasts. It means that your lymphy system is backed up a bit and you are immuno compromised. If you...

    Re: 9 wk old - sleep issues

    I would turn off the TV. It is way too much stimulation for babies/toddlers. My son used to take really short (but frequent) cat naps during the day and then sleep hard at night. Each child is...

    Re: Partial Engorgement or Plugged Duct?

    I had this! It's no fun and I'm sorry you're going through it. Drink some more water and when you nurse your daughter, lay her on the bed (it's more comfy for you) and you lean over her. Have her...

    Re: Sis told to top-up with FF

    I had lost a lot of blood with the birth of my son (I couldn't deliver the placenta). My milk came roaring in on the 3rd day, like clockwork. Blood volume doesn't really have much to do with milk...

    Re: Need advice on sick baby PLEASE!

    Well, most babies who are 4 months old do not sleep through the night.

    I wouldn't worry about it...and I wouldn't give Tylenol to him. Let the fever do it's work and if baby is too warm and...

    Re: organic vs. homemade food

    From what I've read...it depends on the food you're making.

    So, if you are making applesauce...then you should only use organic as the apples have thin skin and the pesticides, etc can seep into...

    Re: Is my Pediatrician right?

    Sleeping all night for babies is usually different than sleeping all night for adults. Most babies are considered to "sleep all night" when they sleep for 5 hours in one shot.

    I think that when it begins to affect the family like this, that it's time for a change. Sometimes these night wakings are due to habit more than need. But, you have to do what is best for your...

    Re: Tons of criticism

    You could always wink and say, "Well, what can I say? I'm crazy about my kid." And change the subject.

    I don't offer the info, either. I'm not going to wean my kids because someone thinks...

    Re: Dr. Jay Gordon method-it works!!!

    I'll just say this from my experiences with my daughter.

    When she was 18 months old, she was still nursing every 2 hours. I was absolutely exhausted because I'd been being woken up every 2 hours...

    Re: Wont Eat!!!

    My daughter refused to be spoon fed. She wanted to do it all herself. So, we cut up Avocados into the smallest pieces for her and let her do it herself.

    Don't worry about it, though...it's a...

    ^ Hopefully they've been exposed and just aren't getting outward symptoms of it. Wouldn't that be nice?

    Re: Help! I had to stop, now what?

    Grab the cabbage leaves, toss them in the freezer and stuff them in your bra for the day. You'll smell pretty ripe later, but it really does help relieve pain/engorgement/etc.
