    People that don’t do their research drive me crazy. I believe it is abuse as well. I have a sister that does it too and we butt heads about it. My month is starting to calm down because we’re all past these things but I’m sure there will be another parenting style that’ll I’ll get frustrated with. People wonder why we get so heated about it…who cares how others raise their child. Well I care because I do thing CIO is abuse.

    Off topic, but Zoey has started this annoying grunting thing when she;s even the slightest bit unhappy. Please tell me it’s a (short!) phase. Aaaaaah,

    deeyore – I used to have an oversupply in the begining too, but nothing close to your output. We did freeze a lot of it but never used it. Then we tossed out a bunch because it was over 3 months old and that’s about the time it lasts in the freezer. So question…. I keep reading that milk changes to better meet the needs of a growing baby. I’ve also read that because of this you shouldn’t store more than a few days worth (this I don’t agree with)… but my question is this: If I pumped today and stored it and lets say 2 months later I dip into that supply how will it affect Alyssa who is needing different milk now? I realize that one meal of this type of milk may not be a big deal but I’m just curious as to what can possibly happen? She’ll still be hungry afterwards? It’s not as nutritious? What? Also… how does this affect tandem nursing? Does the milk change to meet the NEW babies needs? If so, do you then have to supplement the older baby with something else on top of BM so s/he’s getting all the nutrition they need? I’m just a curious cat I guess! 🙂

    shirls – I get sleepy too. I wonder whether it is actually a chemical/hormone thing as it does wear off again quickly.

    Ok… I’m a little stumped on what to do. Alyssa started eating solids a few weeks ago. It started off great. She got up to eating about 1-3 tbsp’s 2-3x a day and still drinking about 30oz of BM a day. Then slowly she started eating less. She only nurses for about 10 minutes now and gets fussy at the breast. The daily bottle she gets used to be about 6oz and now she may only take 2.5oz. Her solids started to decrease as well and when this happened I figured it was due to teething, but we’ve noticed that she’ll eat just about as much solids (sometimes not as much as before, but it hasn’t been affected the way her nursing has). She is still producing about 6 wet diapers and 1-2 dirty diapers a day. Anyway, we’ve stareted to cut back on solids. Now she gets about 1-1.5 tbsps w/ about .5 – 1oz of BM mixed about 3x a day. So far her nursing has increased… but not dramatically. It’s so hard for me to guage how much she is drinking because I nurse her most of the time. When she only takes 2.5oz through a bottle it makes me wonder how much she takes in through the breast, especially since she fusses and isn’t latched nearly as long as she used to be. What I thought was an increase in supply when pumping, I’m starting to fear is just milk she didn’t drink at her previous feeding. This has been going on for about a week… maybe a little longer. Any ideas on what to do? I’m afraid to cut out solids completely since her doc actually has advised us to increase them (prior to this problem) because she was still waking up 2-3x a night. I feel so conflicted. It seems like everyone’s LO’s on this forum wake up several times a night. Her pedi says if she does, it means we’re not feeding her enough during the day and she should be sleeping through the night. I feel if I feed her more eventually she’ll be on more solids than BM and I don’t want that! Sorry for the long rant. Any advice, suggestions are appreciated. TIA! 🙂

    You ladies don’t leave. You’re defeating the purpose of this forum. If you go who will be her to help all the next up and comers? Besides, I’m not sure what Bri will say. I’m certain at some point she mentioned that we weren’t allowed to post bfing photos.

    Egads, I just need to vent momentarily. First, let me say that I really try not to judge parenting styles and am a believer that we all need to do what we can to survive the early days with our little ones. That being said, in the past few days, I’ve encountered three different sets of parents who are putting rice cereal in their baby’s bottles. The first baby is 1.5 months old. His parents have been putting rice cereal in his bottle for weeks. His mom turned in her breast pump so she could get more formula from WIC. Her little (ok, not so little) baby will eat 12 oz of formula in one sitting! The second baby is 2.5 months old; he was spitting up, so the pediatrician recommended that his mom put cereal in his bottle to help keep his milk down..at least she is giving her son breast milk and exclusivally pumping, but guess what, he is still spitting up! The last one is about 3.5 months old and a few weeks ago the mom told me she was going to start putting cereal in the night time bottles so her daughter will sleep through the night when the dad has to take care of herâ€the mom is a night nurse at the NICU here in town. At least she too is giving breastmilk. With all the research out there, I just can’t believe that people are willing to start introducing solids at such an early age…aren’t experts agreeing that you should wait until 4 months at the EARLIEST, but 6 months or later is better?! Furthermore, aren’t waking up at night and spitting up NORMAL parts of development for babies? I just feel like rice cereal is a non-nutrishous filler…sure, baby is feeling full longer, but that means they aren’t getting the protein and other good stuff from BM or formula as frequently. I know the children will turn out just fine, but I just wish parents would do the research before attempting such unhealthy methods….Ok, that is all. Thank you for listening (reading).

    jennfinn411 – your supply wont decrease, your body will adjust. my baby will sleep from 730pm until 7am sometimes she eats @ 4 or 5 sometimes not. i wouldnt worry about getting up and pumping, if you really wanted too then if your baby did wake up you would still have plenty for him your body makes more while hes nursing.

    Luv – I was really scared to get the first one. HAHA! I thought it was going to be horrible. I got it back when Kekoa was 9months old. It last 1 day!! I was so excited the second one came six weeks later and it only lasted 2days. I just got done with my third one and it lasted 3days but the last day was hardly anything. I did get really moody and my supply dropped right before and during. My face broke out like I was in high school again. My lower back hurt a little but nothing too bad. Pretty much it was a lot easier then expected. I wish it would have stayed away longer. Both my sisters didn’t get theirs back until they weaned.

    I’ve been BF for 14 months (way longer than I ever thought I would due to supply issues at the beginning). I believe in baby-led weaning, but I thought that my son would have weaned himself by this point. All the other babies I know have weaned themselves prior to 12 months, but it was my goal to BF until 12 month. I’m only feeding in the morning and before bed, but I would like to encourage my son to wean. Has anyone been successful in encouraging their babies to wean themselves? How did you do it? I’ve tried offering milk before BF and he absolutely refused it. Should I just keep trying that? We’re going on a trip in a couple of weeks that it will be difficult to BF, so I’d really like to have him wean before then. The problem is that if I can’t be there when he goes to bed, I don’t want to give him a bottle at this point since he hasn’t had a bottle since a little past 12 months. I don’t want to reintroduce bottles, only to have to take them away again. SO I feel like I can never go out at night since he wants to BF before bed.

    Congrats Brie!
    By the way thanks for all your comments that helped me 🙂 when I was tired of breastfeeding.

    Matthew will be 6 month on Saturday so far he is solely breastfed (with little rice fore reflux) and he is 19.5 lbs.
