  1. Re: My RIGHT breast is drying up....... PLEASE HELP

    Just remember that pumping is not a good indicator of how much milk your baby is getting or what your breast is producing.

    When I pump I routinely get 1-2 oz less from my right breast but my LO...

    Re: thrush and the gv..purple stuff

    I agree with pp, it is safe to give baby because it is no different than if she got it from nursing.

    You should have seen the looks I got the 1st time I took my LO to daycare with purple punk rock...

    Re: How to pump more efficiently ?

    I only get 3 oz when I pump too. Sometimes breast compressions help me pump more.

    Re: Teething @ 10 wks ?????

    I hate to say it but my 3rd got his 1st tooth at 11 weeks. It's possible your LO is teething but 1st tooth might not make an appearance for months yet!

    Re: Y'all have me scared about teething.

    Well we are going through this now. My LO got his 1st 2 teeth (bottoms) 2 weeks ago and over the weekend the top 2 came in. Let me tell you they are like little razors. I now have a vampire bite...

    Re: Hand in Mommy's mouth?

    My LO has just started doing this. He wants to grab my hair, pull off my glasses, grab my nose or stick his fingers in it, as well as hands in the mouth. It's not as bad when we use our nursing...

    Re: What is Maximum Milk Production????????????

    Are you pumping 4.25 oz after baby feeds? If so that's great. I pump 10 -15 minutes at a time and I get 1.5 - 2 oz if baby has just fed. When I am away from baby I pump every 3 hours and get 3 - 5...

    Re: A bit frustrated with the BF supply

    Just wanted to add at 2.5 weeks I wouldn't expect baby to be on any kind of schedule. It took us a good 2-3 months before we hit our stride with breastfeeding.

    Re: Nibbling at breast with eyes closed

    Sounds like comfort nursing to me. You might want to try changing her diaper or tickling her toes to wake her up more and then offer her the 2nd breast. My LO does this a lot at night right before...

    The calculator is only a guideline, it assumes a baby will be reverse cycling (more frequent feedings at night). My DS doesn't do this, sleeps 2 5-6 hour stretches at a time. He started daycare at...

    When it's getting close to BF my DS my nipples get an almost itchy feeling. I'm pretty sure its a let down coming on. If I compress my breasts for a few seconds it starts to feel better.
