Will Weaning Make Me More Fertile
Whatever works: Most breastfeeding moms find that making a plan of cutting down one breastfeeding session each week or two until you are left with the one feeding that seems to be most important for the baby's overall day/well-being works best. Cut out this feeding last. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Several choices: I have had some moms cold turkey(put baby on a bottle and bind with a prepregnancy bra)& everybody in the house is miserable but a week or so later its done, i don't advise this. Some will start each feed and interupt baby after 3-5 minutes per breast (take off enough to feel soft) switch then bottle till full.Some will drop one feed every few days.All seem to work, the sweat equity is what varies. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Amitriptyline: The proper way of weaning off depends upon the dose. If you are taking a full anti-depressant dose of Amitriptyline (200-300 mg), then reduce by 50 mg every week. If you are just using it either to sleep or for relief of nerve pain, cut down by 10 mg a week. You will not get a specific withdrawal syndrome when you stop; you are more likely just to experience a possible recurrence of prior symptoms. ...Read more
Joint decision: The nutrition & nurturing benefits of breast feeding are well accepted, with some drop off in the nutrition aspect after kids are well into solids @ 8m.The nurturing aspect varies with the kid. If baby makes short work of the feed, 10min/side & wiggles to get down they are showing they don't value the nurturing as much as others. These kids can be weaned as you desire. Those that linger need longer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
The body will wean: off Amiodarone all by itself. The half life of Amiodarone is in the range of 57 days so if you stop it today it will take two and a half months before 60% of it is out of your system. There really is no specific weaning process. Just stop and it will wean itself over several months. ...Read more
Depends: On how long you've been taking it and how much you've been taking. If a pain management doctor was prescribing it, it it best to have him/her work with you and develop a plan to get you off. Withdraw symptoms can be severe and you need a physician by your side to help you through it. ...Read more
Get ready, get set: In seven days, no more pacifier; in six days; in five days; etc. Then, when they wake up on the day it is to be gone, make sure it is absolutely gone. Nowhere in the house. Even if in the trash, they'll find it. It'll only take a day or two and it'll be a non-issue. Honest. (yes, your child may not count or know what days are, but they'll get the countdown concept.). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Keppra (levetiracetam) weaned down?: So you're taking keppra (levetiracetam) and you want to stop taking it. Have you discussed this with the doctor who is prescribing the keppra (levetiracetam)? Have you asked your doctor the post question? Please repost and state your doctor's answers to your questions; or, if you haven't asked your doctor, please state why not. ...Read more
Work with baby: A pacifier can be a babies best buddy or of no consequence at all. If it is closely held, adult thinkers need to be creative helping baby give it up. Take it away or cut it up and the kid may cry & hate you for months+.I encourage a ribbon clip as they begin to walk, so they don't use the mouth as a pocket.A ziplock bag allows possession with a barrier for use. A clear case preserves the prize. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
