    Re: 2 year old nursing to sleep?

    After a month or so of the wake ups she suddenly stopped, and we've been nursing to sleep for the nap throughout. I think it was a phase, definitely a separation anxiety thing. We started talking...

    Re: 2 year old nursing to sleep?

    Thank you, this was really helpful and comforting to me. I hadn't really considered having my older daughter lie with us, but that's a great idea!
  3. Re: Second baby, practically a first time breast feeder.

    I highly recommend the book Breastfeeding, Take Two by Stephanie Casemore. It's specifically for mom's who did not nurse a first child at the breast (whether they pumped only and bottle fed or fed...

    2 year old nursing to sleep?

    My daughter is going to be 2 on Saturday, which is awesome and I'm happy to still be nursing her.

    What's not so great is that she nurses to sleep for naps and wakes up within 30 minutes screaming...
  5. Re: plugged milk duct (?) with toddler

    How are you feeling today? One thing that many moms find helpful is to take a very hot bath and use something like a hard comb to massage the painful lump/plugged duct. Sometimes the plug can last a...

    Re: Feeling lost

    This sounds so much like my second child, my daughter who is 23 months. She was a normal weight, but she strongly disliked solids until she was probably 18 months old. Even now, the best way I can...

    Re: Nursing all night....help!

    That's pretty much what we have...I have her crib mattress against the wall and our queen is right up against it. Her crib mattress is on little risers we found at a department store to make it all...

    Re: Nursing all night....help!

    This is what we just did with my 21 month old. It totally worked for us. She was the kind of kid who just could not sleep next to me any more (the all night buffet). I moved over to my husband's side...
  9. Re: Gentle Discipline 2yo HELP! **For New Beginnings**

    I found it helpful to actually make an effort to say "yes" to my daughter whenever possible, and I saved the "no's" for safety and health issues. For example, she had decided she wanted peanut butter...

    Re: Nursing and sleep. !

    The other thing is, it sounds like your daughter isn't able to verbally express what she wants to you? That might be really key to night weaning without a lot of struggle. My daughter seems to...

    Re: Nursing and sleep. !

    Going through this is really hard! I totally feel for you, as we just went through something similar with my almost 21 month old. I'm a follower of AP, gentle discipline, etc. HOWEVER. I do not...
  12. Re: Weaning my 27 month old toddler - help

    Thank you for posting this response, my daughter is 20 months old and I really like your night time arrangement and I think we are going to try it, too. I think all 3 of us (toddler, husband, and me)...

    Re: Baby Prefers to Nurse At Home

    This was totally my daughter and I (now 20 months old) until she was about 7 or 8 months old, even 9 months old! She would only nurse lying down.

    The only thing that I can suggest is to never...

    Re: Low magnesium

    I take blackstrap molasses as a magnesium/calcium/iron supplement, and it has always worked well for me. I think the calcium/magnesium ratio is ideal for best absorption, too. Once you get used to...
  15. Re: Feelings about weaning from nursing to sleep night time

    Thanks everyone. Things are going better, I've accepted that me helping get her to sleep is faster, and it's just as fast if I just sit on the end of her bed or if I nursed her to sleep. As long as...
  16. Feelings about weaning from nursing to sleep night time

    My daughter is 19 months old, and for the most part my husband has put her to bed for months. Until we went on a family vacation for 1 week where I nursed her to sleep each night. She was out like a...

    ...your toddler bursts into song about "boobies" and "babies" (her word for nursing most of the time).

  18. Re: Long-winded new mom seeks guidance and help (sorry)

    I just wanted to chime in that I had sore nipples the first few weeks too, and my daughter was gaining weight fine, etc. I realize that your baby needs to gain weight back as you said, so it's not...

    Re: Can I really do this?

    I went through exactly what you are discussing with my first child. I still regret giving up, but I also had post natal depression (severe).

    I hope relactation works for you! Either way, this is...

    Re: Toddler feeding on demand?

    If your daughter is feeding on demand, I would say it's very unlikely that nursing is causing her to be thin. Maybe she's just naturally thin? My 17 month old eats very much like you describe....

  22. Re: Still up 4+ times a night to feed.....

    I would say it absolutely depends on your baby. Is it realistic for a baby who takes a pacifier and sleeps in a crib all night? Possibly and possibly not. For a baby who sleeps next to Mom and nurses...

    Re: How fatty is your milk?

    I think what you are saying makes a lot of sense...your son still prefers your milk and toddlers need a lot of fat, especially active ones...so it makes sense your body is upping the fat content....
  24. Re: Zinc deficiency and breastfeeding

    This is such an interesting study...I had no idea that zinc was important for helping cells to die at the right time. Good motivation to stay properly nourished!

    This is a totally normal feeling! I have a 3 year old and 16 month old and it seems like between them and my husband someone always wants my body or my attention. The only way I get past it is to...
