But my toddler only nursing 1-2 times a day, even though he asks for it more like 6-8 times a day.



Yes please!



Yep, my boys think nursing is what everyone should do. One of them in particular is very sensitive to the things I do differently(cloth diaper, baby wearing, natural cleaning products) I hope he marries a sweet woman who has been raised similarly because if she tries to feed his baby "poison" (formula) he isn't gonna stand for that. lol.

My Ergo came yesterday. How in the world it came so quick, I do not know. lol. I have to say it's much more comfy than my mei tai(though I still prefer the mei tai for back carrys, which I don't do because I find it uncomfortable) but it's SOOOOOOOO huge and bulky. I might be too small for it. So I'm going to give it a try and use it on our trip and see if I love it, if not I'm returning it and getting a beco. But it was super simple to nurse in. LOVED it! The only thing visible was a little white and only if you were trying to look into the side of the hood. And Ellie loved it, especially nursing in it. She was peaking out the side of the hood watching everything go by while getting her milk on.
I'm 5'2" and about 125lbs and the Ergo fits great on me. Did you get organic? I bought mine used and it was nice and broken in. Once you get a few miles on it, it should soften up and seem less bulky!! I hope it works out for you. We love the Ergo. In fact DD was trying to do back flips out of it tonight while we were in Target. We were doing the back carry and she was shopping on the clearance rack behind me!


Oh and december, I'd have killed somebody if they dumped out all of my liquid gold. Sadly though it DOES sound like something my in-laws would do. I can just imagine them saying "It didn't look right, there was creamy stuff on the top and looked like water on the bottom" um it's called separation of the milk fat...shake it and it's all good.

Hello All!

What a great thread - hoping I can join you?

We are travelling to WDW from England in Sept for first family holiday and DS will be 13 months and probably still be bfing.

I wasn't too sure whether it was 'allowed' or not - I didn't want to make a cultural **** (pun intended ) and offend anyone so it's good to know there are other nursing mamas out there

Can I just ask if it's OK to bf at a sitdown restaurant. We will be on DDP so have several table meals planned - chances are we won't need to but would be glad to hear anyone's experiences

I totally agree with the need to 'normalize' bfing. I was lucky when DD was born as both my elder sisters had nursed 3 children so it was very normal and natural. We women definitely need to learn how to support each other and make it the 'normal' choice.

Byee!!

By FL law you have the right to breastfeed your baby anywhere! Be discrete, but don't let anyone make you feel bad about feeding your baby.

The laws are pro-breastfeeding in MS, too. Dh is parks director, and before this baseball season started ds12 asked me not to nurse the baby at his games. I told him that if she was hungry she would have to eat. Dh made a crack about calling the cops on his own wife. I had to inform my own husband that he would be embarrassed if he did so, because I had the legal right to feed her anywhere! He had no idea. I guess it is better that I told him, and he didn't find out from a less friendly mama!

I do. If a baby can have a bottle at a restaurant, than a baby can breastfeed.

I fed Everett at sit-down restaurants at WDW, and I didn't get any weird looks or comments. I think most people would rather have a baby breastfeeding than screaming at the table.

The only problem is that I have to have DH cut up my food!

Has anyone ever tried using these baby bonds (formerly known as slurp and burp) http://babybondnursing.com/main/ I'm thinking of getting one because DS is getting to the age where the nursing cover is more interesting than the nursing itself. I'm still not the best at discrete public nursing, so I'd like some sort of help, but its getting so darn hot and with DS pulling on the cover, I'm ready to try something new.

I've got some slow weaning tips though, if you're interested.
Yes, I was joking - I would welcome some weaning suggestions gladly!!

I nursed at a couple of sitdowns and it was fine as far as looks, etc. Didn't really work out so well at the character meals, though, because dd was so distracted by the characters.

Some restaurants seemed pretty crowded to me, so it was harder to nurse there just due to the lack of space.

Talk about 'normalize' bfing - One of my favorite Bfing memories is when I would bf the baby, my oldest daughter (3 yrs old at the time) sitting next to me bfing her baby doll!

Thanks Eeyore! I've always thought he was super cute, but I might be a little biased

rose- thats awesome! She is starting off on the right track! I wonder if there are any statistics about how many breastfed daughters grow up to breastfeed their babies. My mother breastfed all her children, so growing up it seemed like the most normal thing in the world, and when I had my own child, I never considered doing anything else.

Thank you! I haven't tried slipping the strap off of my shoulder.

You will get the hang of it. My BFF is about as small as they come, barely over 100 lbs and she wears hers daily with her DD who is 20 months & not even 20 lbs.

We are also raising our children to know that BFing is the best. In fact my DD who is not yet 3 has been trying to pump for the last few days to get milk for her dollies.

I am so glad to find this. My son is 20 months old and still nurses. I figure he will still be nursing when we go to Disney, though he mainly only nurses in the mornings and at bedtime. But sometimes he does during the day also.

That looks neat, ds is forever pulling at my cover as well! drives me nuts!! I only use it once and awhile but do need it as I am a very large girl and well they do not make feeding freindly shirts in my size and I like to cover myself up a bit!!!

That is so neat! I hope I remember that if I am blessed with another one. My DD self weaned at 2.
I was a shy momma, so I would have loved that! I got alot of negativity when bf'ing in front of people. What a great product! I wonder if it works as well as it looks like.

My 2 year old(son) does this all the time. Sometimes he even nurses two at a time sometimes. He randomly walks around the house with a baby doll under his shirt.


I love that babybonds cover, but it's so expensive. I can't figure out how to make one myself, so I'm out. lol
