    Re: Hair falling??!

    Yes. It happened to me after both of my pregnancies. It can be scary. It was about that time too and came out in combfulls in the shower. But have no fear, it will be over in a couple weeks and...
  2. Re: 8 months and the questions are starting....

    You are not alone. I get it at work. Now that they are 6 months old, people think I should stop. "My wife only nursed for 6 months." "Isn't that all they need?" "Don't you think it's long...
  3. Re: I need to scream (written vent) about spilling milk!

    I had two bags come undone in one day and lost 16 ounces! I cried and had a melt down. I thought someone moved my bag in the fridge at work and crushed it or something. I probably was just...

    Re: Going back to work, can't pump!

    Have you tried pumping after not nursing for 4 or more hours? I get nothing after my girls nurse but I get a lot at work. You may do ok at work? Maybe just pump once during that 8 hours to get out...

    Re: How do you do get things done?

    Wearing is the way to go. I have one in the sling and one in my arm and I carry from room to room to get things done. Most of the time I end up holding them or playing with them on the floor. ...

    Re: Do I need to pump?

    I'm not sure I undestood the whole thing,I have sleepy brain now, but I am totally engorged and leaking every morning and it usually takes care of itself by end of the second feeding of the day. I...

    Re: is self-soothing real?

    I don't know about self-soothing? When my babies are upset, they want mom. They usually want to nurse and that will bring a smile to their faces. They will suck their fingers sometimes. They love...

    Re: Do you "demand-feed"?

    I replace the word "schedule" with routine and that is what we do. Eat, play, sleep. They go down awake and happy and wake up that way. It is just a predictable routine. Sometimes they are only...
  9. Re: Breastfeeding and trying to loose weight?

    Gentle exercise is a natural appetite suppressant. How about put baby in sling and walk? Someone already said BF burns 500 calories a day, that is like running 5 miles! I found just eating high...

    Re: beastfeeding to emotional?

    It took 6-8 weeks for my nipple soreness to go away. You are doing great! Don't believe the pumping amount is the true amount. Pumps are way less effective than babies. Nurse a lot and your...

    Re: sleep?Does it exist?

    Mine sleep 9 hours straight and EBF. They had been going 5 hours for the longest time then it went to 6 and finally 9. Once every 10 days or so they will wake up at 2am for a feeding to keep us in...

    Re: Is it worth it?

    I just wanted to say you are doing great. I know how hard it is to pump at work. Can you lock your office and put a sign up? I just wanted to offer what I do to keep supply up. I feed the girls...

    Re: Did your dr know much about BF?

    My pediatrician has been awesome. I think the trick is his wife was a NICU nurse and had nursed 4 babies! Ask them if they (or their wives) nursed and for how long. That would be a great tell I...
  14. Re: Dr. says rice cereal to 4 mo. to help with reflux. Help!

    One of my girls spits up too and my doc recommended the same thing. I tried to offer rice cereal to both girls and they were having nothing to do with it. Wouldn't even open their mouths. Not at...

    Re: Cousin having problems

    I wish I was home to give you the exact weights but my little one was 5'4 and I know she dropped to less than that. Now at 4 months she is 12'7+. If her pediatrician is supportive, there should be...

    Re: I need some comforting....

    I didn't think you could overfeed with bf because if they aren't hungry they will suck less hard and just nurse for comfort. I love chubby babies. Maybe skip the formula at night and bf?

    Re: Disproportionate Breasts

    I laughed out loud at your boobie groping comment. I grope at work to try to figure out when I want to time my breaks and lunch. Shoot I'm having let down right now just thinking about it.

    Re: Desperate Father

    I heard someone say Breastfeeding is a confidence game and that is totally true! If baby is fussy at her breast and then satisfied with formula, she may be feeling inadequate. That formula had to...

    Re: Disproportionate Breasts

    Mine are disproportionate, I have a better breast (faster/fuller/bigger) even when both are being emptied every time. I think it happens a lot. I alternate babies but tend to put Claire (a.k.a. the...

    Re: Getting Ready To Quit

    I don't know if this is totally outrageous or I'm tired, but can you pay them something? $10, something nominal, and then you are subtly saying you are in a position of power, this is your child,...

    Re: Nighttime Supply?

    I think you'll be fine. Your body makes milk easier at night when you are resting so you should have plenty for her if she needs it. My lo's have gone about 3-4 weeks sleeping about 9 hours and...

    Congratulations! I'm so happy for your accomplishment for your little one. I also had to write because your screen name caught my eye. That was our last duty station (former Marine wife) and now...
  25. Re: Why is it important to keep breastfeeding for a year?

    I rent a symphony for $45/month. It is worth it because formula would cost $75/week (and countless other reasons). I only use it two days a week but still justify the cost. You can buy new kits...
