  1. Breastfeeding
    <p>I am a FTM with a 3 month old and I'm still confused about how you know when a baby is hungry versus when they are fussy for other reasons or just want to suck. I thought putting their hand to their mouth was one hunger cue, but isn't that a big one with teething as well? Which my son has...
  2. Breastfeeding Challenges
    My 1-week old son wants to nurse constantly. If he isn't sleeping he wants to be nursing. He will nurse for anywhere from 45 mins to 2 and a half hours at a time, sometimes switching from one side to the other and back again several times in one nursing. He often gets pretty tired while nursing...

  6. Child-Led Weaning
    Hey guys<br><br> Today I took my four month old son to his well baby visit. Everything looked great, thank god. We had a brief little chat about whether I'd started solids yet, I said I intended to persue baby led weaning and thus far he's had no more than a tiny lick of peach and banana he...
  7. Breastfeeding
    I was formula fed, and my mom has very negative feelings about breastfeeding. This has made it hard to spend time with her when I had a baby or young toddler who had to nurse frequently.<br><br> How were you fed and has it made a difference in any way?

  10. Breastfeeding Challenges
    My breasts seem to hate me. I have serious supply issues. My milk came in quickly and well, but never increased with the needs of my baby. I'm still producing his one week old diet at 12 weeks and it's driving me crazy. So far this is our regimen: we nurse on demand around the clock. If he...

    <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>...
  13. Life With a Baby
    <p>My son i think is on the verge of cutting out nursing sessions. He tries to nurse t sleep but doesn't really want too so he ends up coming back to it like 45 times in two hours. Our bed time had become drastically late while he decided whether or not he wants to nurse. At the end he rolls...

    <p>I have a new nephew that I got to see for the first time today.  By new I mean he's already 4 months old.  Of course I think he's the most adorable little baby ever and I'm just in love with him.  His little smiles are the best and the way his eyes sparkle melts my heart (can you tell my...
