    kla2200~I too have decided to only breastfeed upon waking and sometimes in the evening, with formula during the day. We have been doing this for almost a month and seems to be okay. Maxx is almost 10 months and isn’t drinking a lot of formula during the day so I think he is getting at least 5 ounces from me in the morning. I really hope to keep…[Read more]

    Maxx has given me a Christmas present…he is nursing much better yesterday and today! I hope it was just a phase. Merry Christmas and Happy 2009 to all!

    I finally got my period this week after 9 months and I did notice a pretty big drop in my supply. I started taking this supplement that has fenugreek and blessed thistle but it hasn’t helped much yet. Anyone know how long it will take for my supply to get back up if at all? Does it drop every month? I have only 5 ounces left in my freezer as…[Read more]

    HELP!! Maxx is on a bottle strike and isn’t really nursing great either! Today at daycare he only drank 4 ounces all day and didn’t eat his solids either. He does have a cold and had croup over the weekend but is better now. Should i worry yet? Our daycare provider sid he had really solid poops so i worry he is dehydrated….

    Maxx is almost 7 months and breast feeding seems to be getting easier and easier!! The only thing that worries me is that he seems to eat for only 10 minutes total but then seems satisfied for up to 3 hours….does that seem normal? He doesn’t seem to want to eat after 10 minutes…

    I think my son is trying to wean himself 🙁 Could that be possible? We made it 7 1/2 months and he has been nursing well up until this point but now he fusses at the breast, even though I know my supply is okay (I can hand express milk out). He will take a bottle so I have been pumping and feeding, but I only pump 2-3 ounces at a time (alwyas…[Read more]

    skjunior~we started some water in a sippy at about 5 1/2 months. Maxx is very sloppy with the sippy and likes to play with it more than drink from it, but I always give him one with his meals (he is almost 7 months now and has 2-3 meals a day) of water but I haven’t tried milk in it yet….I can’t bear to see him waste the milk!! I did take the…[Read more]

    I am sad…Maxx and I are weaning. We made it 9 months though! I nearly stopped at 6 weeks and we made it to 9 months. I was hoping to go for a year but I got my period last month and my supply never rebounded after that. I tried Fenugreek and pumping and nothing! I am still breastfeeding for first thing in the morning and I hope I will be…[Read more]

    Ok, so I do think that this nursing strike is related to the fact that Maxx has started to crawl and that is all he wants to do! He only drank 2 ounces at day care today (half a day) and barely nursed after that, though I put him to the breast every hour! I am going to try to increase my supply some and was going to take Fenugreek and Blessed…[Read more]

    Leah from what I read the best way to ‘try’ for a girl is time your cycle perfect. You want to ovulate 12 hours after you have sex because male sperm are fast but die quick and female sperm swim slower but live longer. So…if the egg is already there you will likely have a boy, if the egg drops after you have sex a girl. Good luck with that…[Read more]

    Hi ladies, I have a question. We have been trying for 3 months now and last month i started my AF early with dark brownish -> normal flow but lasted 19 days!! Wasn’t a miscarriage because my blood was tested and even had an us. Well, that period ended 11/19 and now I am starting with the same crap again! Has this happened to anyone? If it did,…[Read more]

    Ozbaby~have you tried sweet potato? I pureed it with some breast milk at 6-7 months and Maxx loved it. Also banana is a big favorite in this house. Sometimes if you thin it with your breast milk your baby might like it more.
