A weaning discussion by Irene
Well, I'm starting to discuss weaning with dd. :) She's still nursing a lot, and, frankly, I'm getting tired of it. So, we've been talking a lot lately about whether she's a little girl, a big girl, etc. Right now, she seems to think she's a Little Big Girl. ;) (She turns 3 yo in April, btw) ...

Allergy meds for bf *and* pg? by Irene
Hey, all you meds experts out there - I have a question for you! I seem to remember that when I was pg with ds, my OB didn't want me taking Claritin for my seasonal allergies. However, we found out it was ok for bf. Well, I just had my two lines show up, and now allergy season is coming. I...

Completely OT Poll: How long have you waited at a hair or tanning salon? by Irene
Sorry to post something so completely OT, but you guys are the biggest group of women I know! The basic question is: When at a hair salon, how many people have you had to wait through to get to your haircut? In other words, no wait would be 0, waiting for the person in the chair to be done would...

We may be almost done...toddler weaning by Irene
I'm not sure if this is it, or not, but ds (28 months) seems to be heading towards self-weaning. Now that I'm almost 5 months pg, there's hardly any milk left. About once or twice a day, he asks for mommy milk, tries for a moment, and then declares "all gone." Fortunately, I've been explaining...

Question on Avent Isis manual pump by Irina
I plan to use this pump at work, but it says in the instructions that it needs to be washed and sterilized after each use!!! I need to pump at least twice while I am at work, and of course there is no way I can sterilize it or even wash as the "breastfeeding room" at work is nowhere close to the...

Indirect support :-) by Irish Marie
My friend and neighbour was telling me today that she met an previous neighbour yesterday whilst visiting her parents who has a 2 week old baby and is bf but is finding it difficult and tiring because he is feeding every couple of hours. So she told her about how I was the same at the start but...

Ab Fab BBC by Irish Marie
Anybody else see Absolutely Fabulous on BBC1 tonight? Quick bit of Saffy using an electric breast pump and then Eddie looking at the bottle of EBM and saying that she reckoned she could get more from one 'titful'. Very funny! -- Marie Mum of 3 DD born 03/98, DS1 born 11/99 DS2 born 08/03

Isn't this just WRONG! by Irish Marie
https://www.handybaby.com/index.php?content=gallery.php I saw an article on this 'great' new product in the Irish Independent Mothers and Babies Supplement today, and all I can say is that I am shocked! There is bf, ff and then this which is the most uncaring, bad parenting tool in the world...

No teeth but biting! by Irish Marie
Liam doesn't have any teeth yet but lately he is biting down with his gums and twisting as he comes off the breast. OWW!! He thinks this is fun because he grins at me when I wince in pain. What do I do, he's only 5 months so I don't think telling him no, or removing him will get the message...

Repost: Vent, advise and understanding requested by Irish Marie
It appears my posts were appearing but were dated 5 days ago so I have to repost a post i made last night. ------------------------------------------------- Over the last few days I have been having debates in my head over whether or not to give up bf. Liam is getting about 4-5 5/6ozs bottles of...

Follow up by Irish Marie
I can't remember what I called the thread but I just wanted to let those who helped me out with advise recently. I have been giving less formula this week and nursing more to get the supply up again. Liam has been very well settled and all thoughts of spoon feeding are well and truly at the back of...

Q's I've been meaning to ask by Irish Marie
Once I defrost ebm in the fridge overnight how long is it good for? If I defrost it in a jug of hot water do I have to use it straight away or can I refrigerate it? If I offer ds bottle of ebm (after heating it up, he won't take them room temp) and he either refuses it or only takes a little bit,...

Nursing established by by Irish Marie
Just wondering when you all felt that you had your nursing established by? Is it generally not established until after the 6 week growth spurt or can it be established beforehand? -- Marie Mum of 3 DD born 03/98, DS1 born 11/99 DS2 born 08/03

Poop Lol! by Irish Marie
I have to laugh at Liam, he almost always poops when I'm feeding him or at least he'll always choose to poop when feeding rather than at any other time. And everybody else in the room can hear him. He'll have us poor with the amount of nappies he is going through..........might be time...

Best advise for bf after c-section by Irish Marie
A friend of mine has just had a baby girl today by c-section (I am so upset for her, they sectioned her because they thought the baby was too big, it turns out she was 8lb 10ozs, her last baby was 10lb 2oz so I reckon this was unnecessary!) Anyway, before she had the baby she was intending on bf so...

Not co-sleeping by Irish Marie
I just wanted to take a straw poll of those that did/do and didn't/don't co-sleep. My dh is a barman so he always stinks of passive smoke after work, he also smokes the occasional cigar so he sometimes smells of smoke even when not working. So based on that I don't think that it would be wise to...
