    EllasMommy23 – I got pregnant while nursing but my son was 17months. Because your baby is 7months already then she is probably on solids, right? This means you’ll ‘probably’ get your period back soon. I got mine back at 9months. So, I would recommend trying. Just have lots of sex. You may get pregnant before you actually get your period. Of course there are women that don’t get it back until their babies are completely weaned but most come back once solids are started.

    Wyattsmommy your family need to do a bit of research! Weening at 3 weeks???!!!! If you can breastfeed then good for you and baby. If you look world wide, breastfeeding for WELL OVER A YEAR is more than normal!!! In New Zealand there is quite a bit of pressure to breast feed as long as you can ‘breast is best’ is the mantra and if you don’t then the nurses etc frown apon you a bit! You stick to your guns! You are doing really really well!

    So my daughter turns 1 in 7 days…I mostly give her BM, but supplement w/ Formula when I don’t have enough BM. (She weaned a long time ago, but I refused to not give her the BM, so I pump). Is it ok to start giving her Cow’s milk 1 week early? She eats cheese and yoghurt w/ no problems. I will only be giving her like 1 bottle a day that I am short.

    act004, have you tried expressing by hand after pumping? Often you get way more out that way. Massage the ducts where you can feel the milk, and then express by hand, and I’m sure you’ll be able to get at least an oz or two more. Someone once posted a link about it here, but it was a long time ago, and I don’t remember the site…

    Congrats ladies for making it to your goals. That’s awesome! A year was always my goal with my first but once I got there I was so used to pumping daily and wanting to let my son to self wean that I just kept it up. I pumped until he was 15months when I stopped working and didn’t need to anymore. This time around my goal is 2 years minimum. I would be sad if he self weaned before that but the way he’s going at it I doubt he will.

    pinkish – Yes and it will go away. It’s a type of jaundice. If it’s warm head outside for some natural light. Vitamin D drops also helps.

    I can’t stop my life as well. But going out with a small infant is soooo much easier then with a toddler or both! I find myself dragging to get ready to go to the grocery! After getting myself ready, clothes on both boys, feed Alex, diaper bag ready, children in carseats, I’m exhaustd! We take the boys everywhere. Much easier when Dad’s coming along. Means I just have to one child.

    Just a question – how many of us ladies co sleep with their babies? I found a really interesting article how North American culture is one of the only cultures that puts babies in a separate room to sleep….most cultures keep the baby in the same bed or room.
    It also discusses how in this ‘forth trimester’ after birth (being a newborn) co sleeping helps babies learn to breathe while sleeping by mimicking the mother’s breathing. Very interesting. http://libaware.economads.com/sleepwithme.php

    I’m spoiled now cause I co sleep with Jacob, and I never really have to fully wake up – neither does he. He starts grunting and turning his head rooting in the night and I just pop the source in his mouth and he drinks what he needs and goes back to sleep.

    I have him on one of those wedges with velcroed ‘bumpers’ on either side so he is slightly elevate and won’t roll under me or daddy – but I’m always aware of him and just love having him beside me. I feel he is safe, and I feel at ease knowing he is safe. Anyone else just loving it too?

    here is the article I read if you’re interested in this study: http://libaware.economads.com/sleepwithme.php

    Ladies can you recommend a good book(i think it was posted previously) for babies who have seperation anxiety and how to deal with that without being traumatic and or causing a lot of crying…

    i express every night so ollie can have a bottle. I use the tommee tippee closer to nature. Every night it is a battle he hates it. He wont take it off me or my hubby. My oldest refused to take one also, but i really want ollie to take one. I want to on the off night have a meal out with hubby or friends. I don’t even know what position to hold him in properly when feeding a bottle. Any advice please?
