Another day, another refused feed, but then she doesn't actually want me anywhere near her at bedtime at the moment anyway (hysterical screaming fits, writhing, hitting me in the face, pushing away), so not a lot I can do there :(  Sad that it's happened like this, but glad it's ultimately been her choice as I always wanted her to self-wean.  I just kind of hoped it would be a bit more gradual than this :'(

I think she's just picking up on all the stress at home right now and doesn't know what to do with it.  Sadly that gets taken out on me :(

Just a couple of questions... I'm going away for work in march for 3 days. I should still be BFing then, and don't want to stop.. do you think i'll need to express once a day for the 3 days- or just leave it.. it's only 2 nights away.. but i'l probably have to leave too early in the morning to feed H before i leave... I'd prefer not to pump- but don't want to lose supply (although i did just pump off 120 mls then as i missed both feeds today for various reasons... so i may need to for comfort!!)

Also- can you DF a toddler? I was really tempted tonight as i was FULL as a goog and didn't want to bother with the pump.. i get all precious about the milk- even though i need to pump or i;m just annoyed- i still don't want to tip it down the drain!! ::)

Obviously Audrey is younger but I spent 48hrs (two nights) away in December. I was surprised that I got really engorged (usually feeding 3 in 24hrs). I tried to pump but couldn't, hand expressing in the shower just enough to ease the pressure. So I'd expect to need to do something just so you don't explode!

And yes, you can DF a toddler :)

I definitely had to pump while away for a weekend. Even then I was engorged between pumping sessions as I couldn't full drain the breast with the pump. I was feeding 3-4 times a day and had to pump 3x each day as well.

Yes you can DF some toddlers at least. I know one BW who did this to reach their goal age for BFing after their LO self weaned while awake :)

Mamas, how does BF fit into your evening wind-down. At the moment I brush Aud's teeth (at least, I try) after her bath, then she gets nappy/PJs on, has BF, then into sleeping bag and into bed. I can't remember with Stan when I moved teeth to after BF - or if I didn't until he had stopped that last feed  :-[ :o

We do similar to you Anna. What I used to do with Cadan was to brush his teeth before the feed but as long as he didn't fall asleep feeding I would give them another quick brush again after the feed. At least then if he did fall asleep we didn't worry about brushing his teeth as he had done it before hand. If there is only breast milk on the teeth it is not actually that bad. This link has great info that really put my mind at rest. http://kellymom.com/health/baby-health/tooth-decay/
With Colby I only brush his teeth beforehand. If he doesn't fall asleep feeding which is about half the time, I still just pop him in bed

We did/do the same with teeth, so brush and then BF.  I'm sure the kellymom link says the place in the mouth where the milk is delivered in a BF baby is different to that for a FF baby, so there's less contact with teeth.
