Can I join in here? I've just received my pack to start my counsellor training :D Really excited but a bit nervous as I haven't done anything outside the home for over 9 years now. Just going over the guides and trying to make head and tail of it all, and joining all the email lists. Looking forward...

I find this really interesting because for me, when we switched to exclusive expressing (with my 4th bub) I actually found it way more stressful knowing/measuring DS's intake! I loved the days of just feeding whenever baby seemed to need, for as long (or short) as baby wanted and trusting they were ...

What bugs me is there's all these healthy eating rules for lunchboxes, but then every special celebration day at school involves a sausage sizzle, or pies and hot dogs or some other equally junkie 'food'. Such mixed messages. And don't get me started on the options at our canteen.... :?

Teaching an older baby to latch

My 17m old has been fed expressed milk in a bottle since about 4 months. We had attachment issues, a tongue and lip-tie snipped but we just couldn't get him to latch happily and feed well enough at the breast to gain weight. Now he is older, he is very interested in boobs, understands what they're f...

Thanks for the suggestions :) It's funny, he totally gets that milk comes out, I do regularly express a bit straight into his mouth, but he just can't work out he needs to suck. I've tried sucking on his finger to show him the difference and getting him to suck on mine, but he just bites it. He also...

And Jenny - you are my inspiration to keep on pumping!! Whenever I think I can't do it anymore, I remember that you had 4 kids too and you did it, so I can too :) You really are amazing!

I've only pumped for my 4th child and I exclusively express for him.

I've always pumped for a set amount of time - 20mins a session. Then I do a hand express at the end to get the dregs out, and do that till the milk stops flowing (only a minute or so)

My kids loved being at the birth of their siblings, and I loved having them there. We did have a very close friend come to be a support to the older kids if necessary and so that DH didn't have to worry about them and could enjoy the birth too. It's such a special family time, wish I could do it all...

I have breastfed 3 children, and am now exclusively expressing for my 4th due to insurmountable attachment issues. I've been told many times 'oh well you were lucky with the others' the implication being that by now I'm bound to have problems. The whole 'lucky' thing totally rubs me the wrong way. I...

I found when my kids dropped to one sleep, they slept early in the day and went to bed early. They also woke early in the morning, but have all always been early risers (bummer that!) So my 16m old gets up around 6-6.30, goes down anywhere between 10 and 11am, sleeps for a couple of hours (sometimes...
