    Bri Well done great effort! Well as of this week I have decided to stop pumping. I work full time and was having to pump twice a day just to get one feed for Hayley at daycare. She is nearly 9 months old and I have been back at work for 4 months.. and to be honest I am just over it!

    I have every intention of still breastfeeding morning and night.. and mid night when she occasionally requires it. I also BF on weekends.

    I am just so happy to hang up the pump. Keep up the good feeding girls xx

    kla2200 – I know many moms start early but I am totally against food before six months, five months at the earliest. There are too many problems that it can lead to. I suppose if the baby has reflux then the risks outweighs the solution but for a baby without it I would stay away from solids. I don’t think it will confuse him. Plus, if he is feeling better then it won’t matter to him. He will be happy again. Good Luck!

    mommyxs3- I know it can be exciting to give baby food so just watch out for tummy aches. Their guts aren’t fully closed until they are 6 months old. I fed my first earlier then 6 months with no problems except she had problems with corn syrup. Just wanted to give you alittle heads up incase your LO starts getting tummy aches.

    Well, Gabriella just hit 9 months and Dr. says we should stop night feedings. :o( I’m only sad because I’m really not sure how I’ll get her to wean. I’ll enjoy the sleep (one the engorgement is over..lol) but I don’t know how well she will take it. She LOVES breastfeeding. I thought about trying her on a cup when she fusses but thats just another thing to wean so…..any suggestions? We use the Nuby soft nipple sippie cup. She only chews so she has figured out that this one will let stuff out that way. We’ve tried SEVERAL and she won’t suck so we’ll go with this one for now. It’s kinda leaky from all her chewing so I hope she masters it soon. LOL!

    bri thanks for responding to my oatmeal question. I originally bought the old fashioned oats but then I was reading the back and it said to add boiling water and its ready in a few minutes which is what confused me I guess since you all say you soak the oats overnight. So I poured some oats and added water and put in my fridge for the morning.. =) Thanks!

    Hi all! I miss you guys and breast feeding too! My son is now 11 months and we totally weaned at 10 months due to a few events. My son was not feeding well (similar to Ozbaby), my supply was dwindling, I was back at work for more hours and we were moving all at the same time. My question is, I only started getting my period in January, had a normal cycle in February (about 29 days and this is when we weaned) and this month I am 7 days late. I took a pregnancy test and it was negative. Is this normal? How long will it take for my cycles to return to normal? We want to start trying for baby #2 in the summer and I worry that my cycles won’t be back to normal yet. Any info would be great! Keep going girls! I miss it so much!!

    jacq, I would use lanolin. I had a horrible cracked and bleeding nipple when I first started due to having an incorrect latch. The lactaction consultant at the hospital came in the morning after my son was born (he was born later in the day after they were gone.) she looked at it, helped with latch and gave me the lanolin and with in a week it was healed. It has also helped with sore nips from pumping with me. Good luck and keep up the good work.

    Kym, I took Reglan for a day! I couldn’t handle it. I was shakey and couldn’t sit still. I just wanted to cry. it sped my heartrate up where I couldn’t catch my breath. I’ve heard it works great if you don’t have a history of anxiety or depression.

    I also take brewers yeast and have noticed an increase in my supply. I have also noticed that I feel like I have more energy which is a plus (guess it’s the vitamin B). I take 3 3xs a day.

    Cereal in a bottle is a bad idea because solid food (unlike breastmilk or formula) needs to be able to mix with saliva in the mouth, to begin digestion. Bottles put it right to the back of the mouth, and it’s swallowed straight down. That’s dangerous. But I agree with Ash5388 that a little cereal and certainly a warm bath – maybe even a massage – might help calm her for a good nights’ sleep. Emmaandtwoboys we’ve all been there – you know what’s right for you and your baby, but it can be confusing and even traumatic to be told something you’re doing is wrong. Especially when it’s coming at you from many different people. But yeah, take it slow; introduce solids when Baby seems to want it, not before. Mountainmomma, I use cow’s milk on Baby’s cereal because I don’t pump, and will give her more as a drink from 12 months, but they don’t actually need it as long as you’re still breastfeeding.
