How often does your BF baby poop?

As Fletcher is getting older he seems to poop less often. It was of course a few times a day, then 1 a day, then every other day. Now he hasn't pooped in three days? Did the same thing happen to you? I am paranoid, I keep checking his diapers thinking there is going to be a huge load, but nothing. I wish he would do it already so I can go about my business instead of waiting for this massive explosion which is bound to happen!...

Help/Suggestions for Breastfeeding & Solids!

For the past week or so, Sunniva has only been properly breastfeeding in the morning and at night. She will breastfeed a bit during the day. But, for the most part, it seems like she doesn't want to.

And though I've done research, I've found a lot of conflicting things as to how much solid food she should be eating. And there seems to be some discrep...

Teeth and BFing

So I know a couple of babies here have cut teeth. I think Fletcher has some under the gum, which is why he has been gnawing on his hands and fussy. Yesterday I felt sore after feeding him, and when I looked at my nipple there were 2 purple, small bruise looking spots. And one even have 2 small indentations in it. Could this be from teeth under the gum? I am not complaining, I plan to tough out teeth and keep BFing as long as we wants unless he is a boob crazy 5 year old or something heh...

Other than Ben and Echo....

...any other LOs still nursing??? Catherine, Shawn, and any other nursing mom's, how often is your LO nursing? How do your sessions go? Are they all over the place? Do they sit still and do their thing? Do they pop on and off/are the easily distracted? On Bailey's half birthday I made the decision to no longer offer Bailey as feedings were a fight more often than not.. And man... I cannot believe she has not asked once! Of course it's only been 3 days, but I am so happy to say I have no...
