    Re: Biting

    Ooch! Being bit is not fun!

    When my oldest child was eleven months old she started biting. I weaned her at the time because I didn't know what else to do. After she was weaned, I really regretted...

    Re: Need a Milk Booster

    Congratulations on your twins! It's quite the experience, isn't it? I'm constantly blown away by how different it is mothering twins than it was with my first.

    I've read that some people who take...

    Re: Recurrent clogged nipple pore

    I ordered my Gentian Violet from Amazon. You'll want the 1% solution- reviewers say the 2% is too strong and can irritate skin.

    Also- this isn't for everyone, I know... but whenever I don't feel...

    Re: Recurrent clogged nipple pore

    What about trying Gentian Violet for that purpose? It's most common use is for treating thrush gently. I'm using it now, not for thrush but just as a gentle antiseptic to treat my current 'issue'....

    Re: Problems from one breast

    It doesn't sound like anything to be concerned about. It could just be that one breast has a faster let down than the other so LO gets a fuller tummy quicker and is just experiencing normal reflux....
  10. Re: Completely Discouraged and Totally Upset About It

    Congratulations on the new baby!

    If you are able to pump- then you know you are making milk. And he is latching well, sucking and swallowing? It actually sounds like you are doing great! In the...

    Congratulations on your new baby!

    Re: 9 day old latches, won't suck

    I agree with you- he probably is nursing for comfort. And like the PP said, you can check his diaper output if you're worried about him getting enough to eat.

    Babies nurse for comfort and they...

    Re: 9 day old latches, won't suck

    Is the issue that he is getting some milk at the breast, but more from finger feeding?
    Because if he is latching well at breast and able to get milk, is swallowing and your wife is doing well- then...
  14. Re: New here and in need of some support

    Thank you for all of this great feedback!

    Here is where I am at right now-

    I was up pretty much all night pumping, trying to relieve engorgement. I wasn't doing too well and I was too...

    I have no known food allergies (other than mango, but I'm allergic to the urushiol in the skin and not the actual fruit), and the boys haven't eaten anything out of the norm. I'm the primary care...

    I looked into this when my boys' pediatrician recommended D for us. Mostly because I was personally offended- (what do you mean my breast milk is deficient?!) Plus, I wasn't wild about giving...

    Re: Recurrent clogged nipple pore

    I'm definitely no expert on pumping- I just started having to pump myself this past week!

    I do suspect your bra, though. Only because every time I've had blocked milk ducts it has been after...
  20. Re: New here and in need of some support

    Great response, thank you!

    I think that the doctor told me to stop for two reason- because of the steroid and to let the skin heal.

    I spoke to both my boys' pediatrician and the lactation...

    Re: Recurrent clogged nipple pore

    Blocked ducts are the worst! Soooo uncomfortable!

    When you spoke with the LC, did you talk about your pumping techniques or your flange size and fit?

    Have you tried going bra-less? It's not...
