BG9F52 replied to topic Breastfeeding into the second year

Don't know if I'm the most experienced person to give advice, but I have just weaned a 26mth old (which was driven by me, but it was so easy I think she was ready). I have read mixed things about ...

I haven't read it myself but my friend did the classes and had a wonderful empowering birth experience - totally drug free. She puts it down to the techniques she learned. It made me very interes...

BG9F52 replied to topic Breastfed Babe sleeping thru at 6 weeks,full boobs!!?? Help

Hi there! Don't worry, your boobs will adjust, but it will take a few nights for them to get the message. If you have to express a little to ease the pressure that is OK too. I know it is frustra...

BG9F52 replied to topic Did you baby suffer from Reflux?

Hi there, My bub had reflux too. The medication stops the burning but not the spewing. It stopped at around 6 months which for us co-incided with eating solids and sitting up-right. I remember it ...

BG9F52 replied to topic STILL NOT WALKING AT 16MTHS???

The 'normal' range for walking is 9 - 18 months. My daughter started walking just a little shy of 18 months. She saw an occupational therapist who said she had low muscle tone. It is hereditary and...

BG9F52 replied to topic Switching from Breast milk to Formula

Melissa, that's a pretty good suggestion (because I did that!) Not because my baby wouldn't take to formula, but because I didn't get around to weaning her off her midday feed in time for me going ...

BG9F52 replied to topic Switching from Breast milk to Formula

Hi Catherine, How old is your baby? The reason I ask is that my friend had the same problem but her baby was over six months so the carer was able to offer yoghurt or other food in place of breast...

BG9F52 replied to topic biting and breast refusal

My daughter did this too. It is awful! I agree with the other posters..basically every time she goes the chomp (or looks like she will) stop the feed. She will the cry and carry on a bit, then put ...

BG9F52 replied to topic good point... breast vs. bottle

Ok! I have read all the posts now - what an interesting discussion. I thought I would add this extra piece I heard about toddler formula recently. I believe it was a radio interview with Robin Bar...

BG9F52 replied to topic good point... breast vs. bottle

I've only skimmed all the other posts so forgive me if this response is a repeat...but from what I have read the main reason to stop bottles at 12 months is because the child can drink a lot of mil...

BG9F52 replied to topic do you ever feel a tad guilty

You don't need to feel guilty! I struggled for years to get pregnant and ended up with an emergency csection(but had a great pregnancy). Now I'm stuggling to conceive again, but at least I have on...

BG9F52 replied to topic Feeding your baby someone else's breastmilk...

Absolutely all for sharing breastmilk - but personally unless I knew the other mother really well, I would want it to be screened through a milk bank. Just my paranoid mind!! I had my baby as the ...

BG9F52 replied to topic Funniest thing your child mis-pronounces

My daughter is a real Wiggles fan and calls 'Henry the Octopus' 'Hegri'. She also calls 'Anthony' 'Amoney'. I've taking to calling Henry 'Hegri' too as I think it's cute.

I was feeding my baby every 2 to 3 hours during the day but like you was very fortunate and got a break at night. If in doubt, feed. You can't over feed and all that regular sucking is doing good ...

Yep, totally normal! They are called 'milk blisters'. They just go away by themselves.

BG9F52 replied to topic Getting ready for childcare

Don't feel guilty! I'm certain it is all about the age. My DD was happily going off to daycare from the age of 9 months. She hit 18 months and that's when the tears and extreme clingyness started....
