Congratulations, that's great! Keep it up and hopefully Sophie will be your daughters new best friend! Max used to say Num Nums (so sweet!) but now he says Milk at bed time when he's ready to sleep!

Yeah I don't want him to stop, I'm willing to go as long as he wants within reason...no nursing an 8 year old thank you very much...I agree it's a bit outrageous. Max is so smart for his age and I know a lot of it comes from all the great breastmilk! Let me know how Sophie works for you!

Sophie is wonderful. My daughter did not become interested in her until she was about 4 months old, but now (at 6 1/2) she is the favorite.  I didn't realize before I bought it that it was a soft toy (kind of like a dog chew toy, it even squeaks!) but that is actually a good thing, because my daughter can't bang herself in the head with it! I would definitely recommend it to anyone!

Madison got that teether for Christmas and she loves it.  She is 5 months old and its by far her favorite toy.  Def. worth the investment!

My Daughter LOVES it. It's the best teether I've found...it's also fun in the bath! The price is definately worth it.

I bought sophie today! I really hope she loves it!! I want to nurse her for at least the first year so there is no way I'm giving it up.I've talked to a few people that nursed only at night time until the baby was 3. i am just going to wait until the time seems mutual. It's such a loving experience i think it will be harder for me to give up opposed to my baby giving it up. The stabbing happens most when im in the shower! I guess its the water that causes the let down. did you see on 20/20 women that nursed until the baby was 9? there is a woman on youtube that nursed until the child was 8! i think that may be a little outrageous!! Do you have a code name for you little boy, or does he ever ask for it before bedtime???

Oh no, I'm sorry she is chewing...that should pass, I am actually still nursing Max at 21 months old, but just once a day at bedtime! He went through a short biting phase, but it didn't last, he's a great nurser! Sometimes when the let down occured I would get a horrible stabbing, almost itching feeling...that could be what you're feeling. Stick with it, now that she's beginnig to teeth nursing will help to comfort her and make her feel better, you're doing the best thing for your daughter!!

i have tried the teething tablets once,a friend had a few and suggested them and she did stop this fussing thing that she does, that im guessing is because of teething?? but i have been using homeopathic drops, and they seem to be ok, although i think it taste gross from the face she gives me. and it seems lately she has been chewing on my nipple sometimes when she eats, its not the greatest feeling in the world, thats why i need sophie =] how long did you breastfeed you son? do you ever remember you boobs itching uncontrollaby sometimes?

Yeah, I bought it for Max when he was around 5 months old, I was desperate and had tried all kinds of "teethers" from babies r us...wood, plastic, cloth, someone told me about Sophie and I ordered it from Ebay (new) with shipping it was like $20 but worth every penny, she'll be able for her to grab on to her because it's so light and it makes just a tiny squeek, cute (I saw Nicole Ritchie's daughter in a magazine holding Sophie..kind of funny!) Good luck with teething, it's tough. If you haven't tried the teething tablets give them a try too!

thanks! it does seem a little expensive, she is 4 months old and if she loves it as much as your son and he is 21 months old, im sure its well worth its money, and it looks like it would be easy for her to grab on to.

Yes, We love Sophie! My son is 21 months old now and is getting his 2 year molars & still uses sophie, she's a little expensive, but worth it, no harsh plastics or PVC either! Between Hyland's Teething Tablets, nursing and Sophie...that's what got us through teething! Hope that helps!
