  1. Re: What helps relieve severe engorgement?

    When I have engorgement it was awful, so I totally feel for your sister. I would try handexpressing when I was taking a hot shower, then afterwards, I would use a ice pack wrapped in a thin towel to...
  2. Re: need advice for exercising while breast feeding

    I've been working out for the last 3 weeks and my baby has no trouble taking my breastmilk. I even fed her right after a work-out session once... granted, I did rinse myself clean before feeding her....
  3. Re: full-time nursing.. when should i start pumping??

    Sleep? SLEEP?

    Meh! I've already forgotten what that is. Nowadays, it's a miracle I get a 3 hour uninterrupted nap at night :lol Even when you aren't breastfeeding, you think you could sleep...

  6. Re: I think my pediatrician is wrong - what do you think?

    It sounds like she is starting to feed better and I'm guesing the fussiness is due to the formula. My daughter is also breastfed, but I was supplementing with formula at the very beginning, until my...

    Re: Ftm help!!!

    I agree with Jenna. As I mentioned in my previous post, pumping TOO early will mess up your body and cause unnecessary problems. Wait until a week before you have to go back to work, then try pumping...

    Re: Ftm help!!!

    Oh mama! I know how you feel... I know exactly how you feel.

    Being a new mother is overwhelming. My breastmilk also didn't arrive until 5 days AFTER I was home from the hospital. My daughter was...
  9. Re: full-time nursing.. when should i start pumping??

    Me too. I developed oversupply, which led to plugged ducts, which led to Mastitis in one breast, which turned into an Abcess - despite my aggressive pumping day and night! I'm back to EB (and only...
  10. Re: Second post, LOTS of questions, new to BFing, 6-day old

    You don't have to stop your son - most babies will pull back or stop on their own when they are full. If he stops, simply try to introduce the nipple again. If he is hungry, he will re-latch and...

    The Case of the Crusty Horns!

    I always slightly scrub and rinse the horns/pump parts after I pump... then I boil them about once a week. I just noticed the other day, the very inside of the pump (near the back part, where it...

    Re: I dont want to fail! Advise.

    You should also attend the free breastfeeding courses they host at the hospitals and schools. I found out about the free courses through my insurance provider. They mailed out a whole bunch of things...
  13. Re: 2 month wellness check... Is pedi advice accurate you th

    Sometimes my daughter is smacking her lips or has her entire fist in her mouth, but when I offer a breast, she pulls away and cries. (My daughter is 3 1/2 month old). I learn that sometimes the baby...

    Re: Water: to give or not to give?

    You have plenty of liquid in your breast. I honestly don't see the point in water. My SIL actually brought over 2 gallons of "baby" water about 2 weeks after LO was born. LO had baby acne and SIL...

    Congragulations on a new baby girl!

    *hugs*

    I'm sorry to hear you are having so much trouble so early on! Could the throwing up be from lack of burping? Sometimes it takes awhile for my daughter...
  16. Re: Have Mastitis: Really need support & encouragement

    Ah... she's 3 1/2 month old right now. I suppose I've grown use to MIL's way of bottle feeding. MIL was constantly telling me how the baby drank "all 4 ounces like a champ!" Although she hasn't...

    Re: Why is over supply bad?

    It's true! It's true!!

    Before I was breastfeeding, I read tons of books and went to classes. Nobody ever really discussed overproduction and when I read about it briefly in the tiny pamphlet book...
  18. Re: Have Mastitis: Really need support & encouragement

    Ladies - you've all been really blunt and I appreciate it 100%! All of your encouraging words and suggestions have been very helpful and I've been doing my best to step-up and smooth things over with...

    Re: Why is over supply bad?

    Ah - yeah it really is a vicious cycle. I've been working with my LC to pump less and less. I use to pump every 1-2 hours, which was pure exhuastion for me. By the time I stored the milk and rinsed...

    Re: My milks going away!

    My breasts also took forever to make milk... it wasn't until day 7, did I see a teeny tiny bit from pumping! My suggestion (and this is based on my own experience), is to make sure you give the baby...
  22. Re: Have Mastitis: Really need support & encouragement

    Thank you guys. I am going to do my best and work up the courage to talk to DH/MIL calmly tonight. I had a long day at work to think about my own emotions and I think I'm able to keep them checked...
  23. Re: Have Mastitis: Really need support & encouragement

    Yes - it's mainly out of frustrations DH , but DH just doesn't understand how painful and frustrating it is to spend every other day with plugged ducts. Then he has the audacity to whine when he...

    Re: I feel like my baby hates me

    I hope things are going well for you! I also face the same thing sometimes when I am feeding my baby. She would be visibly hungry (smacking lips/sucking on fist), but when I offer a breast, she would...
