It's common...: Even after you've stopped nursing, you're likely to be able to express a little milk. The thing is: as you continue to express, you actually stimulate milk production. So don't check for a while. Now, if you are having discharge that doesn't look like milk - or if it's bloody, see your doctor. Lgromkomd. ...Read more
My son is 1 year and 1 week old. Can i give him soy or almond milk and tofu now? I'm also still breastfeeding him. Thank you.
If you wish. Know : That he can develop allergies to soy & nuts, the same as to cow's milk. Ask your pediatrician about calcium supplements if he doesn't have 16-21 oz. Whole milk & milk products/day. Juice & almond milk aren't necessary; limit to 4-6 oz/day . He can wean to a double-handled open-mouthed cup now. Age at weaning is a personal decision.

Breastfeeding a 1 year old, eats solids and drinks milk but still nursing, mainly for pacification. Should i wing or wait till she is ready?
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

Constipation: Constipation is common in young children due to diet and behavioral factors. Limit milk to 16 oz daily, encourage pears, plums and prunes. Miralax (polyethylene glycol) powder 1-2 tbsp in a drink is a daily stool softener. Yoghurt with probiotics and whole grain breads and cereals for fiber might help also. Boiled raisins in applesauce. Wean breast and encourage table foods after 1year of age. ...Read more
