    Re: Pumping back at work

    How often do you pump? I usually pump after about 6 hours and I am usually engorged at that point and can get quite a bit pumped. I always use Mother's Milk Tea when my supply dips. I wish I had more...

    Re: frozen stash, time running out?

    Re: frozen stash, time running out?

    Re: Needing ideas and encouragement

    AF! That is definitely something that will decrease milk! It should get better when it's gone!

    BTW, I think goat's milk would be better than formula! Their milk is supposed to be very close to...

  16. Re: Lots of questions and challenges...please help!

    Sounds like it could be a growth spurt to me too. He may also be using you as a pacifier. My kids have all done that too!

    Could you be having supply issues? If so maybe try some Mother's Milk tea....

    It is possible. Both of my kids have done this. I can't imagine giving a baby that young cereal. It's not just that breastmilk doesn't fill them enough. I have a friend who formula feeds & her...
