Re: My dr told me to wean my three month old!

Aww, what a sweetie!

No advice that others haven't already offered, just ! hANG IN THERE--YOU'RE DOING AWESOME!! My DDs both have followed an "unusual" curve as well, but are both happy and healthy.

I think you should be proud of how far you have gone to nurse.

I have seen that before! It is what made me ask my dr about other possibilities. Unfortunately I did take 1 more diflucan before I realized that it sounded more like vasospasms than thrush and I was reading somewhere that diflucan can make vasospasms worse and remain in your system for a week! Thanks for the encouragement!

If it is vasospasms I recommend wool nursing pads

Sometimes I wonder where some Doctors get there degrees, I had an OB/GYN (I don't ever see her but it was an impromptu trip for a situation) tell me to go on birth control and wean my 12 month old DS. Her rationale -- he wasn't getting anything from my milk except comfort and I didn't need to get pregnant again so soon. I tried to tell her that we would get more from my milk than cow's milk and I could do my only family planning, but ultimately I just decided to let it go and but her on my NEVER see again list.

Good for you for hanging in there! Sometimes the nursing isn't easy (esp. at first!) but your LO thanks you for all you do, you are her world!

Re: My dr told me to wean my three month old!

That sucks!!!!!! You would think educated people would be EDUCATED!!!!
Arrrrrgh!
Good for you for sticking it out! My favorite time nursing was nursing my toddler. But I had to nurse my baby first I am so looking forward to nursing my toddler son. Especially since we adopted him. It totally stops (and confuses) the people and their comment about if he's really mine Only MY child is allowed to walk up to me and do that

Re: My dr told me to wean my three month old!

You dont need to wean with FTT. YOu can nurse and then supplement. I kept a breastfeeding relationship with my DS until 9 months when he chose to stop nursing. We never had enough supply for him to gain weight after extreme hard work. That didnt mean I had to waean just do things differently. However, it sounds like your ped is ok with the growth now right...the only problem is thrush. get a new pcp...try the LC like another poster said.

Re: My dr told me to wean my three month old!

Your little girl is beautiful and you should be commended for sticking with it and for posting such a nice response with additional info about your situation. I don't know that I would have been able to be so composed when this thread took a bit of an ugly turn! Sounds like you are doing and have done everything that you need to. Hope you get it figured out soon!
