Why Are You Still Breastfeeding?

**I'm not bashing either formula feeding or nursing just a discussion** Are you bottle or breastfeeding? I answer "breastfeeding" and I always get "Why!?" or "How are you still breastfeeding?" I only know a handful of mothers but all with the exception of my aunt (different generation) never nursed past 3 months. Same thing as women I meet or speak with in the baby aisles at the store. It really seems as if most women hate, can not, or will not breastfeed. But why? If you can breastfeed (no medical conditions) why then choose formula?...

5 Year Old in Trouble!

Hi Moms, I am writing again regarding my daughter who is five and started K5 this year. If you read the previous post this is a continuance of that one. My daughter is not doing any better in K5. I spoke to another mom who is our neighbor and has a child in the same class and this mother has been in the classroom more than once and shared with me last weekend that she observed my daughter having difficulties in class. She said my daughter seemed very distracted, not focused, not interacting much with the other kids, being called down for...

Schedule for Breastfeeding?

EDIT AFTER READING SOME RESPONSES: My baby WILL NOT take a bottle/sippy cup/etc. Absolutely WILL NOT. I have tried - believe me. Also - he was eating 5 jars a day when he was 6 mos old - but he had to stay in the hospital for 6 days and didnt feel like eating solids. After that stay - he went down to two jars a day and just will not eat anymore. It is a fight to get him to eat the two jars! I am afraid to give him anything like puffs because he wont eat anything with texture and everytime i try puffs, etc. he chokes because he...

My 5 Year Old Has Excema

My 5 year old daughter has excema. When she was an infant, it was so bad that she has scratches all over her face. She was reffered to a determatologist. He gave me some cream w/a prescription in it. This does not help her at all. We have controlled the dryness on her scalp by using T-gel ut her skin is still very dry. Last time we couldn't control the dryness, the doctor put her on steriods for 7 days. I hate the fact that the only way to help her skin is to put her on steriods. I have heard lots of bad thing about steriods. The doctor...

Breastfeeding While Sick

Hi out there! I have a quick question for all of you moms that breastfeed. Tessa (my little girl) is 4months old and I am still breastfeeding. I am starting to come down with a cold. Every year around this time I seem to get bronchitis. This is actually a 2 part question. Question one: is it ok to continue to breastfeed while I am sick (it is just a cold right now, but I am starting to get a sore throat). Question 2: does anyone have any suggestions on anything that I could take while I'm breastfeeding to help get over my cold. I'm...
