  1. Breastfeeding Beyond Infancy
    <p>So this is a frustrating, mystifying situation to me. We are military, living in South Korea. I stay home with my 3 yo son, who I am still nursing. We live on the side of a mountain, kind of far from everything and it has been very isolating. The other mothers at the nearby base are more...
  2. Breastfeeding
    <p>How long is it *physically* necessary to night nurse? I plan on breastfeeding until she's ready to stop/hopefully 2ish/wait and see kind of thing.... but I have friends who have kids who complain to no end about being pawed at in the middle of the night by their toddlers who are still...
  3. Breastfeeding Beyond Infancy
    <p>So, the story is that I gave birth in September 2011. I've had gnarly oversupply since the get-go, and returned to work when Kai was 4 months old (re: he took a bottle and pacifier from 4-12 months...and we were, and still are, separated for about 40 hours a week). Now, we bedshare, and I...
  4. Breastfeeding
    <p>My son just turned 1. I exclusively breastfed and pumped for about 7 months. After that, I BF + he would have 1-2 bottles of formula at daycare. Now, he is only BF at night. I enjoy nursing, and didn't used to mind that he wanted to nurse several times a night. I didn't feel that we were...

  6. Breastfeeding Beyond Infancy
    <p>I have no problem breastfeeding infants, but when they get to be about 18 months or so it starts to become unpleasant and I get some hormonal reaction like nails on a chalkboard or something every time they breastfeed, and it gets worse and worse until I'm tearing my hair out around the time...
  7. Breastfeeding
    <p><strong>I am looking to see if Chaste Berry will balance my hormones although I am not TTC, I am nursing a 35 month old (who nurses like an infant! :P). There doesn't seem to be a whole lot of studies but I checked out reviews on amazon and some people said it made them depressed and...
  8. Breastfeeding Beyond Infancy
    <p>I'm proud to be breastfeeding my gorgeous 14 month old boy.  We've been through some difficult challenges lately, but now that we've figured out the problem breastfeeding is a joy again!</p> <p> </p> <p>Once he turned 12 months the questions began..."when are you going to wean him?".  From...
  9. Breastfeeding
    <p>I am sure I want to wean ds who i 23 months old now, but my question is: does gentle weaning includes crying? like a lot of crying? I mean everytime I try not to nurse him he breaks into crying and that breaks my heeart!!! what should I do???</p>
  10. Breastfeeding Beyond Infancy
    My DS (turning 2 this week!) paused his nursing today to tell me "yummy nursies, is good"! I am tickled at how good that felt! Nursing an increasingly verbal kid is hilarious.
  11. Breastfeeding Beyond Infancy
    Anyone else?<br> I have been tandem nursing for 18 mos and he seems to survive on milk and not much else.
  12. Breastfeeding Beyond Infancy
    We are currently ttc, and I am nursing our youngest. For my past two pregnancies, I had extreme difficulty nursing due to the feelings it would cause me...the only way I can describe it is "ick"...I would like to continue breastfeeding all the way throughout my pregnancy and then tandem nursing...
  13. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    Hi all,<br><br> This is a very strange post. I'm not really looking for advice, but just a space to offload.<br><br> A dear dear friend invited me to her hen party yesterday and it's location couldn't be better for me ... my hometown. But I lied and said I have a wedding that weekend in another...
  14. Breastfeeding Beyond Infancy
    I am tandem feeding an almost 2 year old and a 3.5 year old. The little one is now complaining if he gets a wet nipple. Sad cries of WET and motioning for me to dry it off. Too funny!
  15. Breastfeeding Beyond Infancy
    <p>Hi, I'm wondering if anyone has any experiences letting a nursing toddler go with an ex-dh for a two week visit?  DS will be turning 2 during this time frame.  We divorced when he was only 5 months old, and since then he has only seen him maybe three times- for 5 hours at the longest.  The...
  16. Breastfeeding
    <p>I thought <a href="http://www.mothering.com/community/t/1383720/does-breastfeeding-make-travel-easier">this conversation on breastfeeding on the road</a> was really interesting. For many, breastfeeding does make travel easier...plus, it's so neat to nurse in new and unusual places. ;) </p>...
  17. Breastfeeding Beyond Infancy
    My dd just had her 12 month checkup today, and despite her excellent health, her pediatrician told me to stop breastfeeding "as soon as possible, because it will ruin her teeth". She described kids she'd seen whose teeth were badly eroded by breast milk. She was adamant: "you should stop by 15...
  18. Life with a Toddler
    <p>How do I teach my 1yo teething toddler to BF w his gums and not his teeth?  Unfortunately, I still have not been able to meet with my local lactation specialist, so, at this moment, sadly, I'm on my own, and I need kind caring help and support.  The local WIC office gave me a plastic nipple...
  19. Breastfeeding Beyond Infancy
    <p>Our beautiful DD was born a week ago and so far tandem nursing with my 2 yo DS has been a better experience than I thought it would be, except that I'm not sure I can keep up with both of them.  It seems like whenever DS nurses he takes a lot of milk and I feel soft and empty for hours...
  20. Breastfeeding Beyond Infancy
    <p>I have a week old little boy and am still nursing my 27 month old daughter.  I am getting so frustrated and emotional because she is not dealing well with the baby nursing.  This morning she FREAKED out when I had to nurse him first and she had to wait.  She only nurses first thing in the...
