How are you doing? How often is LO eating per day? Is he/she sleeping through the night? Are you supplementing at all? What about sippy cups?
We're still going strong at almost 7 months! I was supplementing by now with my last 2 babies due to supply issues but this time my supply is still strong YEAH! He's usually not sleeping through the night but can go 6-8 hours. I think he just doesn't want to LOL! I did do a sippy cup of juice the other day when we were at the mall and he was screaming. There was no where to really nurse so we used a cup which he drank fine out of. He usually eats about 5-7 times per day still.
shes doing well, eating every 2-3hours still, sometimes we get a 4hr gap in the day. Still basically 100% EBF I keep trying solids she will eat (lately) 2-3bites then be done, and I usually try once every few days with solids. She will sleep anywhere from 3-6hours at night now she did sleep through the night till we all got sick last month(she was up alot then) and shes starting to get back into her night pattern. No supplements, no pumping and no sippys or bottles, all boob
Elias eats anywhere between 6 and 8 times a day. At daycare he takes 2 5 oz bottles of BM. While we are together I bf on demand. I have never supplemented. He does love to drink water from my cup. I gave him a sippy today with 1/2 an oz of water and he just played, which is totally fine. I wanted to see what he would do. h does get any where between 3and 5 oz of food over two meals. I do not press him he eats what he wants. This has not changed the amt of times he nurses. I am still trying to pump more than he needs for daycare. I would like for him to still get bm after he self weans when ever that is.
Thank You Justine *SandKmommy* for an awesome siggy
Spencer is still BF. He does eat solids about once a day and has had a sippy for a while now. I put juice in it but he usually just plays with it! He still BF's every 3 hrs or so and is not even close to sleeping through the night! Some nights I feed him 6 times between 11 and 7
Jacob is still nursing!! He is eating solids 3 times a day, but he nurses before his solids. He nurses probably every 3-4 hours throughout the day and night. Every once in awhile, he will get a bottle. (like this morning) But, usually I try to avoid the bottle. He will drink water from a sippy cup and a regular cup (with help).
Ana still nurses on demand. I have tried to give her bm in a bottle, but she´s not having that!! So its just boob.
She is just starting to eat her solids, she messes and plays around and eventually eats some of it. She has a sippy cup of water as her special cereal makes all her food a bit difficult to swallow and she gags. (If I make it any runnier she just blows it off the spoon!).
At night she goes from 8-3 and 3.30-8.30 so I cant complain.
Avery is always eating ...she still nurses about 6-7 times a day and she also eats 3 solid meals a day. She sleeps from 8pm until 4 or 5 in the morning hen she needs to eat, so I would consider that STTN. I do think that she's going to be a bear to wean though because she's a comfort nurser and she is completely addicted to boob!
Aiden is still nursing 5-7 times a day and eats some solids maybe once a day at this point (usually some cereal around dinner). I have not supplemented and he doesn't drink water yet as I have given him a sippy cup but he doesn't have much interest in it other then to play with it. Around the time when he turned 6 months he started only waking up once to eat so he goes to bed around 7:30 and would wake up anywhere between 10 and midnight. In the last 7 days he has only woken up to eat twice and the other nights he has slept right through.
Daniela is still nursing too. She eats solid food 3 times a day, I don't force her if she doesn't want to eat, so sometime she eats tons of solids and sometimes she refuses (she refuses jar food and she eats a lot if I make her meal myself).
I would say she never goes past 2 hours without nursing, so she's attached to me all the time. At night she nurses probably about 3 times. But she got a cold a few days ago and she nurses all night long.
We're still doing really well. Even though we started solids at 6 months, he is still nursing every 3 hours 24/7. No supplementing and don't have any plans to do so. We haven't tried a sippy cup yet but probably will once I start giving him water.
Angelica - Mommy to Dominic (Sep 11/07) and Alexander (Apr 20/09)
We're still BFing over here. It's still almost exclusive. I try to give him one meal a day, but he's still just playing with it or gagging. I made some sweet potatoes and last night he actually liked it!! I still pump every 3 hours at work and he takes 4 4/5oz bottles at daycare (7a-5:30p). When we're together we BF on demand, which I look forward to. I hate pumping =( He sleeps most of the night. When he was sick last week he wasn't but he's back to sleeping from 7:30p to 5:30a and then back down til 7:30.
besides that, Nicola is doing well. We still ration, so I pump 100%... which is why I am so confused about the Mastitis. But anyway, ya, she has 4oz every 2 hours.... at night she goes about 6 hours then she wakes, has a bottle then back to bed for about 4 more hours. She eats rice cereal, and loves veggies, chicken & beef.
sippy cup, we have one, but have not tried it yet.
