    Re: Nursing habits of a 16 month old?

    When my kids were that age, they probably nursed 6-8 times per day and once overnight. But there's a really big range of normal- there are 16 month-olds who are completely weaned and also those who...

    Re: Breast pain

    Oversupply and fast letdown can be associated with pain. If they are causing what you're experiencing, things should get better as the oversupply calms down.

  4. Re: Up all night feeding 5 mo, not sure I can keep this up

    One trick that a lot of moms use to cope with stupid advice about sleep is to never discuss their babies' sleep patterns with people who aren't going to be helpful. Save the conversations about...

    Re: Needing some encouragement...

    One reason I always came down on the side of continuing to nurse was that my kids were going to be the same demanding little people whether I nursed them or not. Nursing was more than just food. It...

    Ugh, that's a sign to see someone else. What did the blood test cover? I'd want to see a thyroid hormone level in the mix.

    Re: Breast pain

    Since it happens a few times during a feeding, I'm going to guess that it's a letdown sensation. Seem women describe it as a tingling sensation, some as cramping. Some don't feel it at all. It's...

    Re: Breast pain

    Anything going on aside from the pain? Redness, dry or flaking skin, cracks? Does the baby have thrush?

    Re: blood clot from nipple

    So there's just one big crack on the nipple? When baby unlatches, how would you describe the shape of the nipple: symmetrical, like a pencil eraser, or my metrical/wedged/creased/shaped like a new...

    Re: Help For My Wife

    :ita There is likely to be a HUGE difference between a personal use pump and a hospital-grade rental. If mom isn't using a hospital-grade pump, then she's not going to be getting maximum stimulation...
  11. Re: Up all night feeding 5 mo, not sure I can keep this up

    Up every 2 hours- what fun! :yikes

    I know it's awful, but when baby is gaining weight normally, this sort of return to frequent nighttime feeding is normal, and to a certain extent to be...

  13. Re: "No milk in it" says my nursing a 2.5 year old

    The pill doesn't make your cycles regular. It just gives you the appearance of regular cycles. The bleeding you get with the pill is not your period in the normal sense of the word. It's bleeding...

    Re: Help For My Wife

    Excellent advice above.

    I especially agree that illness may be a factor here. If she had pre-e then she was probably given magnesium sulfate and there are some reports- anecdotal ones- of mag...

    Re: blood clot from nipple

    Nursing was crack and pain-free up to a month ago? That sounds more like thrush than teething. With teething, I think he'd have to really bite you in order to generate a crack.

    I would see the...

    I would at least do a waking temp... Even when I was up and down all night to nurse, I was still getting a fairly predictable BBT pattern. The charts I was producing weren't as perfect-looking as...
  17. Re: "No milk in it" says my nursing a 2.5 year old

    How wacky? Weaning doesn't always make your periods regular, because breastfeeding isn't always the root cause of a wacky cycle.
  18. Re: Breastfeeding and pumping questions for a 3 week old

    Schedules are generally the enemy of breastfeeding success, because any time you space your baby's demand out to some artificial interval, you are messing with the supply = demand equation that...

    It can reduce supply, but that sounds like a positive in your situation. No?
  20. Re: first time EB mom with MASTITIS HELP ME!!!!!

    You need a good double electric pump, preferably a hospital-grade rental, for as long as you are exclusively pumping. A manual pump is not going to cut it when it comes to...

    I assume so- the sulphur-containing compounds in cabbage are glucosinolates. The ones in sulfa drugs are totally different chemicals, with the exception that they do contain some sulphur.

    Maybe he's distracted? Babies this age often have trouble with overstimulation- instead of nursing, they would rather play, explore, interact, look around, practice crawling, etc. It might help to...
  23. Re: Engorgement and establishing supply...confused!

    Re: confused!! need suggestions

    This is a common problem, so please don't feel alone! It sounds like you are managing it pretty well. You're avoiding the pump, you're feeding on just one breast when the baby needs only one, and...
  25. Re: Newborn baby nurses but doesn't get full

    :ita And this is why it's a good idea to continue to pump while you get your baby's issues sorted. Milk supply is maintained by frequency and completeness of milk removal, so the high supply won't...
