Has anyone had a tough time with this?? I feel like I am ready to stop, but every time my son “asks” for it, I can’t bare to see him sad and I cave. I know it’s his biggest comfort and I feel really depressed every time I think about stopping.
So my LO is almost 15 months and still breastfeeding. I was in the ER this weekend and diagnosed with Shingles. Since then she won’t nurse from me. She will take a cup or bottle but when I offer her to breastfed morning or night she just sits there and refuses. I don’t want to force it because honestly I’m hurting and exhausted but still heartbroken this might be the end of our journey. I was h... More
I just wanted to know if there’s anything I can do to help boost my supply back up? I tried mother’s milk tea and loads of water already. Is there anything else I can do? I thought women (moms) can tandem feed? I also EBF so baby refuses a bottle of almost every kind and sippy cups too. Is there a formula that is going to taste like breast milk? I just don’t know what else to do. Thanks in ad... More
I thought I was sure that I wanted to wean my son at 12 months, and from 8 months, I weaned him off night feeds- giving him water instead- and reduced nursing to twice in 24 hours. I barely feel any let down, if at all in one breast, and my breasts have considerably reduced in size etc. Now I’m on the way out, I really wish I was could continue. Could I try again? I still nurse him twice a ... More
He mostly likes to have a good 10 minutes on it once or twice during the day, but at night he has to have it to go to bed. Also during the night he has some 3 to 4 times. I’m afraid of him crying all night since I’m staying with my grandma at the moment. Any advice would be great thank you.
My daughter is one and although we are not weaning yet I have no clue how to start when the time comes! She is sooo dependent on the boob, she would nurse all day if I let her 😩 & she still nurses 6 times a day. I’ll try to redirect her with food or a cup but she knows what she wants. I know it’s a bad habit but it’s the only way I can get her to sleep as well. I tried to night wean but she... More
If my baby sleeps thru the night, does she consume more per feeding or does she start to eat more often? I can’t figure our what to do if she night weans or I decide to night wean. I pump a little more than she eats per day, and I nurse her evenings and weekends. I’m so afraid of losing supply, even though I have a huge frozen stash (almost 11 gallon ziploc bags). Thank you!!!
I want to stop breastfeeding and I want to teach him to sleep in his own bed. Any tips?
My almost two year old (in 8 weeks) still does not sleep through the night. Wakes up 5-10 Times a night. Wants to nurse and if I’m out of milk then he’s up for a few hours. He has never slept through the night! It’s tiring. Any tips are welcomed
Apologies in advance if this is inappropriate. I’m due to have my first baby soon and would like to breastfeed, however I have very small breasts (barely an A Cup pre-pregnancy and now actually fit it) I’m worried my baby won’t be able to latch or we may have other difficulties. I was just wondering if anyone had the same experience or any advice on how to make breastfeeding achievable?
My baby is about 4 and a half months and initially, I tried to breastfeed, but I just couldn't lactate. I even tried pumping and it seemed like I pumped for nothing. I feel I lost a bond with my baby because I didn't breastfeed and I was even shamed for it! I really want to know if anyone has tried to relactate and what worked. My baby has a cows milk allergy that is found in normal fo... More
My daughter will be two in a few days. She is my fourth baby. My older three were weaned successfully at 16 months each(they're all boys if that matters) . I am still nursing her around the clock, in addition to regular three meals a day, snacks, dairy milk. She will throw the BIGGEST tantrums until I nurse her. I admit , I am very weak with this one. It really has become the only time my l... More
I’ve been trying to have baby number 2, but I can’t get pregnant. My son is 14 months and I just now stopped breastfeeding him.
