  1. Re: Traveling to Costa Rica-must pump

    I'm wondering if I pack the BM in my luggage (not as a carry-on item), if the security personnel would bother the BM ? Ex, trying to open or investigate what type of liquid it is; and in that case I...
  2. Re: Traveling to Costa Rica-must pump

    TSA is a U.S. entity, correct? I will be traveling outside of the U.S.

    I will check out the link and see if they have any leads. Thanks!
  3. Re: Traveling to Costa Rica-must pump

    Will I be forced to discard the milk? Any leads on who I should ask? Perhaps pump and dump the milk? It would be such a waste when people are in need.

    any help is appreciated.
  4. Traveling to Costa Rica-must pump

    I am traveling to Costa Rica without my LO and will need to pump while I'm away. I have found information about traveling with breast milk within the United States but I have questions about...

    Re: Supply still low-can't keep up

    I'm willing to go to another LC though the cost for each session puts me off a little, but in the long run its worth the investment. I wonder what another LC would suggest considering all of the...

    Re: Supply still low-can't keep up

    So the visit with the LC was interesting. A lot of the info she gave me was not necessarily what I think LLL would recommend but here it goes.

    She tested my pump=all is good.
    Had me pump one...

    Re: Supply still low-can't keep up

    My LO likes to comfort feed and sleep while latched on a lot of times. I feed him whenever he acts cranky and nothing else soothes him so I figure he wants to nurse and he will nurse and go to sleep....

    Re: Supply still low-can't keep up

    Thanks, I will post an update after my LC meeting.
    I was doing some research on SNS and it seems that the SNS can also cause the baby to be dependent on it as well (ie: learning to nurse the SNS...

    Re: Supply still low-can't keep up

    Thanks.
    My thyroid is typically low but is currently managed by medication and is within a normal range. My midwife and physician have neither pointed to it as a cause for the milk issues. I've made...

    Supply still low-can't keep up

    In the early weeks of bfing my baby would stay latched on for long periods of time. He began to get frustrated with bfing after being latched on so long but I figured it was a growth spurt....

    Re: growth spurt over?

    I went through the same thing last week with my 4 week old baby. He is still nursing A LOT so I dont know if/when the spurt ended.
  15. Re: Still hungry or using me as a pacifier?

    In regards to being a "pacifier", what is there to do if my nips are starting to get raw? The rawness is just on the tip but becomes uncomfortable after a long (1+ hr) pacifier session. Suggestions??...
  16. Re: Just started pushing away/chewing hands

    Sorry for the late response on this. I'm new here and just figured out how to follow up on my past posts.

    I def don't have an overactive letdown. If anything, I think its slow. I rarely even feel...

    Re: frustrated and ashamed

    I'm dealing with similar issues. My house is not in optimal condition and I feel as though my life is on hold right now.

    I strongly suggest a sling. I began using mine ( I have a Maya sling and an...

    Re: Exhausted & not fulfilling

    Mommal, thanks so much. Your insights really hit home for me. I will take it one day at a time.
