    I just want to share my story... To Whom It May Concern: I am an Active Duty service member and mother to an eight-month-old baby boy. I am proud to say that I have been able to provide breastmilk for my son his entire life. That was until January 21, 2017 when a package that contained close to 300 ounces of breastmilk was lost within the UPS network. I am away from my child due to military obligations, however; I made the decision to continue the breastfeeding relationship even though I cannot physically be present. I researched day in and day out the best way to ship breastmilk to ensure its safe arrival. I purchased the required supplies, I read the UPS regulations on the use of dry ice, I pumped four times a day to maintain my supply, I labeled and froze the breastmilk flat in five ounce bags. I arrived at the UPS location on January 20, 2017 ready to send the breastmilk that I produced to my husband. I paid $181.81 to have the package sent UPS Next Day Air with guaranteed arrival of January 21, 2017.

    Hi Mamas! So my little guy will be 8 months in 3 days and has just gotten all 4 top teeth at once!!! So that brings his teeth total to 6! So my left nipple has been swollen for about 3 weeks now. It swelled to I kid you not like the size of a tator tot! Went to my ob who said no infection and didnt think thrush as my other nip is fine and my son doesnt seem to have any white patches in his mouth. Well I was prescribed all purpose nipple ointment which seriously helps! Within about a week and a half my nip was almost back to normal. But last week baby boy bit me and its swollen again! Not like before but still swollen! Anyone ever have a nipple swell from biting or irritation? I have serious health anxiety so I just here thinking I have a rare form of cancer all day =( Thanks in advance for help!

    I have (knock on wood) not had problems with thrush, but I suffered from some extreme candidasis 6 years ago. I was nauseous, throwing-up, and having many other symtoms, for years. I was on the candida diet and Nystatin for 1.5 months yielding only a small improvement and it even got worse for the first few weeks, which is said to be a good thing; it's a die off reaction which means it's working. At 1.5 months I got my hands on some coconut oil (it has so easily available then). I felt horrible after I started taking it orally, I was having another, even more intense, die-off reaction. Even after the 1.5 months on Nystatin. And in a few weeks I felt dramatically better after years of undiagnosable nausea. The coconut oil actually worked better than prescription antifungal and I've read studies that corroborate this (sorry don't have time to search for them now), it's also much, much healthier. Coconut oil is identical to your body's natural defenses, it provides the raw materials for your body to utilize as an antibiotic, antiviral, or antifungal. But you need to take it regularly and in specific doses and I'd suggest starting smaller and working your way up over a week or two. And I'd suggest the diet, though I could see it being a lot of work with a little one. Keep in mind any treatment for yeast/candida takes a long time to work. I was on it the diet for 4 months, and the coconut oil for longer. Your infection is likely not as bad as mine, but any candida is...

    Lots of saliva is entirely normal if it is a reaction to teething, and while 3 months is a little early in general, babies can teeth anytime so it is entirely possible teething is the root of the saliva. But I would also say that my son (who teethed very early) drooled an incredible amount from about month 3-8, and it never caused latch issues. So I would again wonder if the root issue is still a poor latch. According to a quick search online, a side effect of Losec is nausea. Nausea certainly can cause excess saliva, so I wonder if it might be related. Also what form does the Losec come in? My oldest son as a baby was put on Zantac liquid for a while and it tasted so horrible (yes I tried it, it was absolutely disgusting even in the flavoring) he could not get it down and if he did, it made him gag. He was switched to Prevacid solutabs, dissolved in water. Those taste great and he sucked it in happily, but I have never been convinced it did much. I was later shocked to learn that his dosage (he was 4 months old) was the same as that given to me as an adult for firmly diagnosed GERD (I had an endoscopy) - and that dose caused ME intestinal discomfort and had to be reduced. In the intervening years I have become very skeptical of medication for reflux in infants. Not saying it is never needed, I just think GER in infants is over-diagnosed, meds are over-prescribed, meds tested only on adults are used for infants, and consequently quite possibly prescribed in a too...

    Thank you for your response. Definitely need to try new nursing positions. The pain persists. Home pregnancy tests have come back negative btw. I'm having other uncomfortable symptoms too and wondering if they aren't all because of the mini pill. I've read lots of reviews and complaints that are pretty consistent with what I'm experiencing. Thanks again for replying!
