    I need to know the direction I need to take to build a stash of milk for future date nights. My son is 6 months old next week and I exclusively breast feed him. I feed him 7-9 times a day with one...

    Re: Question about milk storage

    When should I pump though? I pumped my stored milk when I was a lot fuller. My son is now 4 months and my body has regulated my milk way more. I don't want to have nothing left for my son when he...

    Question about milk storage

    I pumped about 12- 5 oz bags of breast milk at the beginning of December and had them stored in my freezer in my home until the beginning of January and then put them in my chest freezer in the...

    Thanks for your reply--you specifically have helped me enormously since I've joined this forum!:hug My son very rarely if ever takes both boobs during a feeding. He will eat from one side for about 5...

    Is this chomping?

    I've read women referring to their son or daughter as "chomping" on their breast and I'm wondering if my son is doing the same thing. He's 3 months and today he's been stopping at the nipple and...

    I've been exclusively breastfeeding my son since birth. He's now 3 months and 1 week. Our nursing relationship has been rocky with fast flow, but now he nurses ok when we lay down. :clap

    I think he's gaining just fine. He was born 7.11 and now he's 15.5.

    Re: I need help

    Forgive this stupid question. I read somewhere "By 1 to 2 months of age, a breastfed baby will probably nurse seven to nine times a day". Does "day" mean 12 hours or 24 hours? I'm just curious. I...

    Re: I need help

    But, yes, still struggling. I don't get it--last week was a good week. He would pop off and on, but didn't cry as much and then last Saturday it started again and it's been crying at most feeds since.

    Re: I need help

    I try to lay him down and do a side-lying position as much as I can. He does the best when he's sleepy. So, I try to get him up from a nap when he's starting to stir and make noise. If I'm lucky he...

    Re: I need help

    I think my supply is going downhill, too since I stopped pumping to help with the flow and with him sucking for a few minutes then stopping and me trying again an hour later----I think it's resulted...

    Re: I need help

    I should add when he starts crying--I can't console him he just won't eat. So, I try later, but he usually has his hand in his mouth right after.

    Re: I need help

    I really don't know how much more longer I can do this. My sons diapers are not as wet as they used to be and it only takes a few sucks before he starts crying hard--this is 98% of feeds. Nothing...

    Re: I need help

    He's been having a shallow latch/chomping for a while now and I haven't had pain. Last night was the first time my nipples felt sore. I didn't know if it had anything to do with my fast flow at all.

    Re: I need help

    Why does my son look like he's "chomping" on my breast (especially during the first part of the feed)? He is still latched on pretty shallow, too.

    I am nursing more frequently and pumping less, which has helped. I didn't pump at all yesterday and only once the day before just because I was so full in the morning. My son is sleeping through the...

    So, I shouldn't be concerned if my milk does not look yellow, but watery and white?

    Re: I need help

    Thanks. Someone told me the times I feel full to pump so there is not as much in my breasts to flow out at him. So, this is not true? Do I need to worry about mastitis if I feel full a lot? Not...

    Thanks for all your replies. I stay at home with my baby so I nurse him often and yes this helps. Since his nursing sessions are so short, do I need to worry about my milk drying up? I pump once in...
