    Re: why has to be BF or formula for 1st year?

    re. biting / I agree - don't stop just because your child grows teeth! My sister told me the best thing for this - I love it and everyone I've told has said it works for them (how many parenting...

    Re: bf is beginning to ANNOY me!

    My first reaction is to say that remember that your baby senses all of this - when you're lying there nursing her just itching to get up that's a cue to her to stay a little bit alert so she's aware...
  3. Re: Chances of weaning after 1 week seperation

    I don't know your child, but at 20 months, she probably needs to know what to expect - that you'll be away for several days and then you'll be back, that when you're apart she'll stay with so&so and...

    Re: Weaning my toddler

    I think whenever you give yourself (or your child) a hard deadline, it's a setup. I say focus on the needs. It sounds like you're doing great, actually, in that she can go several days without...

    I have been working full time since my son was bitty tiny. I was fortunate enough to be able to wag him around with me in the sling for the first 6-9 months (about 7 months in his dad quit his job...

    Re: Bottle during the day/BF at night

    I am curious why you are eager to cut back - is there something specific that bothers you about him nursing all day? I know that for some people it's the issue of sitting still, for others there's...

    Re: Questions with weaning...

    I don't want to second-guess your need to wean, but I just always wonder when I hear of a situation like this about the child's needs. I mean, children at 15 months don't manipulate, and I'm...

    Re: nursing and sleep

    My son always has nursed to sleep when I'm with him, but he spends a LOT of time with his dad, who is a stay-at-home dad! They had a different nap routine (and rarely nighttime) - I know that Dr....

    Re: I stopped b/f for almost 24 hours

    Get yourself some mommy's milk tea and drink plenty of it! And keep your little one nursing as much as you can, on both sides.

    Re: toddler nursing with chipped tooth

    I don't know if this is common or not, but on the topic of thrush, we just went through a serious bout of it earlier this year. I never did see any "signs" of it in my son's mouth, but I...

    Re: Does my baby weigh enough?

    Aren't there supposed to be different weight-height charts for formula-fed and breast-fed babies? Maybe your doctor was using the formula ones exclusively. At any rate, it's good to use this as a...

    Re: my mother-in-law...

    Maybe I'm crazy, but I've been breastfeeding for 4 years so far and I have never felt like I've lost my body or identity or anything. For me it has been the most normal thing in the world.
