    cosmomama – I know the feeling! My first son is 28months and my second will be 2months tomorrow. It’s crazy busy in our household. Going to the grocery is a massive undertaking! HAHA! It’s getting easier and I think having my boys two years apart will be lots of fun in the coming years.

    phatbaby – I am going through the night-weaning process as well. My nearly 9 month old daughter sleeps in a crib in our room (sometimes in our bed too when her Dad is gone as he travels alot for his job and it’s easier to nurse that way). Anyway, I have been trying to just walk her (just for a couple of minutes while singing very quietly) when she wakes instead of feeding her. It’s been working for most of the wakes but she still insists on at least one bout of nursing. I usually give in too because at that point I know she has a pee diaper and I don’t have the heart to put her down like that. She freaks when I change her and don’t feed her first, so that is one of the reasons that I relent. The other is that I know I am thirsty in the night and can drink a glass of water at any point, so I believe that she may be parched as well and don’t want to keep it from her. However, your dentist’s comment about the tooth decay now has worried me too. Anyway, have you tried walking your son? I know you are probably wanting him to fall back asleep on his own and if I had the answer for that then I would be a well-rested mom writing how to do it, lol!

    4thandlast – Congrats on giving it one more shot. Many moms wouldn’t in your position. As for engorgement, it’ll settle down. It usually takes a few weeks and around 3months your milk will be completely adjusted to your baby’s needs. Keep up the good work. Eventually you’ll want to try it without the shield. The only negative side effect is that it can lower supply if used for too long but in the beginning it’s a great tool.

    momofcash – That was my first. He went once a week and only when it went over did it bother him. My second tends to poo daily. If he goes 48 hours without a poo he gets cranky. But he is always gassy.

    Bri- that is awesome. I don’t ever see anyone BF here! If I did I’d almost want to go up to them and say ‘good for you!’ because it’s pretty rare around where i live.

    Help! I am flying out tomorrow and don’t know to travel with my breastmilk. I will be leaving at 7 am on Thursday and will get back home on 7 pm on Friday. ANyone familiar with traveling with breastmilk? I didn’t want to check a bag, but there might not be any other way… or what about shipping it overnight to me in dry ice?

    Bri: My old apartment was up on ridgetop, until we bought our house in Bremerton. That’s so funny!! I wish there was a way for those of us that are close to get together… None of our friends have kids, so we don’t get out much anymore.

    hannah, this is not to judge ur friend but given that she has signed her kid up to be babysat by u without having him at least meet u first, is kind of an indication that she prob isnt one to mind too much about details like u nursing infront of her son.

    actually, my sister doesn’t even have any kids yet. They’ve been trying for almost a year now, with no luck. When I talked about pumping at work, she just told me how it wouldn’t work. My sister and I have never seen eye to eye on anything though, and she always thinks she knows best. Who knows, maybe when she finally has kids of her own, she will actually listen to me for once. hehe, I’m sure I’m dreaming! As for the standing and nursing, it is getting hard. my own little man is turning into a superchunk too! Not quite as big as yours, but he is only 4 months old and 17 pounds. I don’t know how much longer we’ll be able to do it, but I suppose the older he gets, the longer he will go between feedings, especially once he starts solids in a couple months, so the NIP will probably slow down… maybe! lol

    Mileysmommy08 – I know exactly what you mean. Because Chris didn’t latch on in the beginning last time I had low supply. It sucked but I was able to bring it up. This time around I was prepared with fenugreek and MMT. Had my oatmeal ready as well. Even though Super Chunk is growing like a weed with fertilizer I still can’t get over it. I know I have enough milk but in the back of my mind I still think, What if?

    Bri: that’s happened to me a couple of times. It’s like Levi gets lazy. Right now we’re having a hard time though. She has a yeast infection, a virus that also causes a rash, and she’s teething. Her first tooth is poking through and she’s only 3 months old… I can’t help but feel sorry for the poor girl. Yesterday was a rough day for both of us.
