    Re: Sore nipples now?

    My nipples hurt when I was ovulating for the first time last month - DD was 13.5 months. Not sure if it has something to do with your cycle, but that could be a possibility.

    Re: BM tastes funny after defrosted

    I agree on the funny taste thing. It's hard to explain, other than it just tastes different. I noticed it first when I mixed previously frozen bm with rice cereal. I also defrost in a bowl of hot...

    Re: Still taking prenatals?

    I very seldomly take a prenatal vitamin (like once every couple of weeks) and every time I do I almost gag. I think its okay so long as you eat well and have balanced nutrition. At this stage I...

    Re: Need more EBM or not?

    It sounds like she's getting plenty of milk. If she's gaining weight and sleeping well then it all sounds good. I did find that when my LO stopped taking long afternoon naps it seemed like she...

    Re: Am I feeding her too much?

    I assume that amount because when I pump at that time of day instead of breastfeed (for instance if I have a meeting) I get 8oz. I sort of approximate based on whether she empties my breasts and how...

    Am I feeding her too much?

    My DD is 7 months and drinks upwards of 38oz of breastmilk a day and 2 meals of solids. I'm just wondering if this is too much - she is 98% for weight and doesn't refuse food very often. Here's...

    Re: Yet another thrush question

    Hey there,
    my 7-mo old daughter had thrush recently too and I got it in my nipples too. My ped just told me to rub some of her medicine on my nipples whenever I give her some (3 times daily). I...

    BF longer than 1 year

    I am planning on continuing to breastfeed past the 1 year mark, but am curious about a few things. When the ped suggests starting cows milk at a year, is that only for babies that no longer get...

    Re: Milk Production Differences?

    My right side is more productive than my left - getting 5+ oz out of the right and 3+ out of the left at a pumping session. I don't think my DD prefers the right as I start most often with my left...

    Re: Nipple Hickeys?

    Maybe she's just gotten lazy and is all of a sudden latching onto only the nipple - it feels like she's nursing normally though. I'll have to look more closely when I feed her next. It happens from...

    Re: Breast milk for eye infections

    I did this twice when my LO had clogged tear ducts early on. I would squirt breastmilk in her eye every time I fed her and it cleared up within a day or two. My midwife suggested it and it worked!

    Re: Expressed milk...how much to feed

    How old is she? My girl still eats 6 times a day (6mo old) and each feeding is 6-8oz. If your baby is younger it might be more like 4-5oz a feeding. You could always do one bottle of 4oz and then...
  20. Re: how long can expressed milk last out of fridge?

    I believe 4 hours out of the fridge; my daycare lets it sit for an hour and then re-offers it to the baby, but thereafter dumps the rest. Hope this helps.
