My son is EBF,I feel like my milk might not be enough for him anymore,he is waking up more to feed during the night.He is 4 months,I have been thinking to start him on some solid food. I know some pediatricians recommended to wait until 6 months. When did you start solids? Did you notice a difference in sleep after ?
I'm still 20 pounds over my pregnancy weight. I'm 4 months postpartum. With my first I lost most of the pregnancy weight within the first 6 months. This time around I feel like my body is holding on to the extra weight. My struggle is that I'm still breastfeeding and I don't want to compromise it by dieting. Is it possible to diet without affecting my milk supply? When did you ... More

Wondering if anyone has some tips or tricks to try to stop breastfeeding my 21 month old. She’s still stuck to my boob, mainly for nap/bed time. I’ve tried all cows milks she doesn’t budge, I’ve said no and she just gets really upset. Probably my fault I may give in too quickly, so she’s not screaming the house down and going to bed upset. But willing to try anything that has worked for anoth... More
My 10 week old son is refusing the breast for his last feed at night and I'm not sure what to do!!can't get him to latch on he will fight and screams and will attach for a few sucks and then pull off and screams! He also does this sometimes during the day when he is not hungry enough to feed. Any advice?
So my 10 week old recently started sleeping longer stretches at night and feeding less,I usually wake up with my breast so full,he will have the morning feed from one breast and I pump the other breast and what ever is left. I usually offer that to him in a bottle couple times during the day,would my supply get affected since I'm basicly skipping a feed?
Day 3 after birth. We were discharged last night from the hospital. My breasts are so engorged as I have chosen to not breastfeed I am reaching out for HELPFUL suggestions to relieve pain other than ice/heat compresses and pain medicine as I have already been doing those.
We welcomed baby no.2 about a week and a half ago, I was looking forward to ebf since it’s what we did with our first, but things have been a little different this time around. First of all we had problem getting baby to latch at all. She would just scream (not cry, scream!) whenever I brought nipple close to her, it was really bad at first but it’s gotten better. Except that then she started... More
My son turned 2 this August and i am worried as he doesnt eat anything sometimes whole day. Also he keeps coming to me to breastfeed and if denied screams at the top of his voice. We are having difficulty explaining to him that this is lunch/ dinner time and that he has to eat. Any suggestions on how to discipline toddlers.
My son will be one in a couple of weeks and I am looking forward to start the transition to no longer breastfeed him. Right now he nurses about four or five times a day for about five minutes. He is great at eating solid foods and does not nurse to sleep. I am not sure how to transition him to cows milk (has never really taken a bottle) and stop breastfeeding him. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
