3 months yesterday. I've started supplementing, but only when I want to have a few drinks and he wakes up before the alcohol is filtered out. For the most part, we're going strong.

Don't forget, if you're under the legal driving limit then you can Breastfeed!

Oh, I know but thanks for the reminder. I actually use the test strips to see if I'm good to drive home. Obviously I feel good, but I really can't take any chances with probation.

we are at 7 months today! :D



My little man is miserable though and refusing to nurse at times because his top teeth are coming in. He will chill if I give him some infant advil but I only do that if he gets feverish... which has been on and off for the last week... just pop thru already!!! Anything help your LO's thru this? He's the first of my kids to refuse to nurse, the others just nursed more...

Supply is limited....




After 18 month (and being 17 weeks prego) I think my breast have had enough for now. It kills so much to nurse my DS right now and honestly I don't think he's getting much if any ( which freaks me out a little). I wanted to BF until he was two to help him with all his allergies hoping it will help him out grow them, but I don't think that will happen. I just hate nursing now and I can't just stop :( any encouraging advice/words

Mamas, how soon after birth did your periods return? I've been to my ob because I've had cramping, like I'm going to start a period, but have yet to have one. I'm six months pp, and still breastfeeding exclusively. I realize it's normal to have a delay in menstrual cycles returning, but I'm getting anxious to get them started back and over! I had my tubes tied, and have heard they are going to be hell when I start them, and would rather know what I'm getting into ASAP!

I'm sorry! I've not been in your shoes, but a friend of mine weaned during her pregnancy and after baby was born she started tandem nursing them both. Maybe that's an option?

How has the time changed affected (effected? I can never remember which is which) your baby's feeding schedules?



We finally had a pretty good schedule down (his lead, I didn't enforce it) and then the time change and March Break messed it all up.



I'll be happy on Monday when Adria's back in school and hopefully we can establish a better routine.

We haven't changed yet over here, and it is affected :-)
