"Hi Aby's Mom,It is very common for babies to eat at the breast all night. Some people would say not to let the baby do that. I believe it is up to each mom. I co-slept and fed my daughter on demand. Meaning if she wanted it, I gave it to her.As…"
"I nursed and co-slept with my daughter for 12 months. I started weaning and putting baby to sleep in her own crib at 10 months. It took about two weeks of giving her small bottles of milk at night when she woke up. We put her to bed with a 9 ounce…"
"I started weaning at month 10 and it continued until month 12, but we introduced a bottle with either formula or whole milk.
I gave my last pumped milk at 12 months. Eventually when your supply is very reduced your son will not longer want to breast…"
"The advice I was given was to buy one of each kind- pocket, hybrid, cover with prefold insert, and then see which one you like best. And buy used to start.
For a newborn you don't want to waste your money buying diapers for newborn and then…"
"P.S. I was sleep deprived and nonstop for the first 10 months. It will get better every month. You're amazing and doing amazing. Don't stress. Relax. Take care of yourself and keep that baby drinking milk every 1/2 hour to hour. The more…"
"I remember when I would get sick it would take up to two weeks to get my supply back up even with a common cold. You're doing everything you can. If you want to continue to breast feed exclusively then continue your current routine- your supply…"
"I think you're fine. It's a good schedule you have. Someone told me once that we don't eat the same amount every day. Sometime we eat a lot and sometimes we eat a little. Babies do the same. You could always breast feed after feeding…"
"Another reason is that your breast wont feel as full because the skin of the breast stretches. After a few months of breast feeding my breast werent so bulgy any more and by the time I finished breast feeding completely and my breast began to shrink…"
"I do not have a sanitary cycle. I did three washes with detergent, bleach, tea tree oil and vinegar. Overkill. Then a double dry in the dryer.
I think she was not getting changed often enough at daycare since they're used to changing…"
"My daughter got her first yeast infection, she is one.
Is there anything I need to do with the cloth diapers to clean them better?
Do you think she is not being changed enough and the moisture caused the infection?"
"My daughter didnt sleep through the might until she was one.
She slept in the same bed with me and dad until 11 months and then we moved her to the crib. Then dad would get up in the middle of the night for 1 month until she learned to sleep…"
"You should def. try to pump on your breaks because your milk production will decrease or you might stop producing at all. In most states you are permitted to pump during breaks. Check the La Leche Laegue website for your states laws.
"The car, dressing rooms, bathroom (though, hardly ever), in the open if I have someone to block me and my nursing cover, & the airplane with the blanket between my seat and the seat next to me.
I stopped nursing recently and I miss it very much."
"My daughter just turned a year. A week before her birthday she started walking and the week after her birthday (last Monday- today) she has slept through the night every night.
She now sleep in her crib, I am no longer breast feeding, just putting…"
"i agree on the tiring them out!! i can get my baby on a full tummy turn on some yo gabba gabba and she falls asleep on us now. at 8mths. she will wake up around 11:30 hungry so i BF and she'll sleep the rest of the night. till 6;30 ish. if she…"
"that happened to me as well we moved around 3mths and i think just a different environment they dont knwo. i want to say she did that for like 1 1/2 - 2 months. then she woke up every 2hrs at night time. at 8mths now im just now getting her to…"

Your biggest parenting challenge so far
Both of us adapting to her new toddler class. There are so many demands on her to drinkfrom a sippy cup, to eat finger foods and for me to to go see her at my lunch hour. ;) I miss our lunch time play date.
6 Months Old- Getting all of the chores done. Bottles and Diapers need cleaning as well as the laundry.
She is so mobile it's hard to keep her still to eat and sleep even when she is exhausted and starving.

i already stopped for about three days now I don't think my milk is still being made... but i never thought of that because i work at a catholic nursing home and the nuns don't believe in woman having children... they gave me a hard way to go in my last trimester
I think I'm going to get that tea that you're talking about. I am pumping every two hours, and the supply has gone up definitely from the beginning. I don't pump when I get home though, and I think I'm going to have to start doing that after he's done nursing, or at least do it in the middle of the night consistently, which I currently don't do.
The pumping at work is going well. I have my little room to go to and can remote into my own computer when I'm in there to still be productive. --I have to say, it's the weirdest thing to be getting basically topless at work every day!
I'm getting about 12 ounces a day, which was as much as he was drinking at daycare, so I am holding steady. He's kicking it up though, so I'm going to have to try to pump more often to keep up with him, since they want to start trying 4 oz at a time with him instead of the 3 oz that he's been taking. They said that he still seems hungry now...
