    Re: Whoohoo!!! We succeed, 1 yr.

    I always found that beets helped my LO with constipation and they are super healthy -- although messy baby is self-feeding. But beware -- beet poops look scary! My daughter's nanny screamed for my...
  2. Re: Returning to work - Breastfeeding and Pumping

    I have not had great luck with dreamfeeds with either kid. With my daughter, I did not wake her up to nurse before I left for work, because she was not the type to dreamfeed. She was either awake...

    Re: Cannot Wear a Bra & Leaking

    What kind of bra are you wearing? I was getting plugs from an underwire nursing bra this time around. Wore it all the time with my first baby and didn't have problems. I ended up going to a...

    Re: Bf pain nipple too big

    I had a similar issue -- is nipple too big because of damage already occurring or is it just that too big in general? Everything seemed great with my latch with baby for the first 24 hours or so,...
  5. Re: Ideas for Quality Marital Time (Without Pumping?)

    If you can find a drive-in, please support it! I was going to recommend that, but they're hard to find. The one my parents took me to as a kid is still in existence, and I look forward to taking my...

    Re: Not responding to Hygeia Pump

    I also need to use my Medela flanges and horns, but I use the Hygeia valves (they fit into the holes of the Medela flanges). What size are you using? Do you think you may be using the incorrect...

    Re: To get or not to get (a new pump)

    I had trouble getting the right flange size for a couple weeks. My supply tanked. But I was using the same size (27mm) with my Medela pump so was confused. But someone on here mentioned that the...
  8. Re: Ideas for Quality Marital Time (Without Pumping?)

    I have a few concerns about the movie theaters, as I do film presentation as a part of my job. First of all, movie volume, especially in commercial theaters, is extremely loud. I have never tested...
  9. Re: Second baby, practically a first time breast feeder.

    I think if you really want to BF this time, you have to go into it determined and knowing it is likely to be rough and might take some work with an IBCLC. I had a lot of difficulty breastfeeding...

    Re: the dreaded unwanted advice

    I agree with this -- I should have worded it differently. How formula-fed babies have been traditionally treated and handled in Western culture is what has, in part, led to many of these beliefs --...

    Re: the dreaded unwanted advice

    I don't know how old you are either, but I'm 39 -- had my first baby at 35. I've lived on my own since I was 17, when I left for college, and have never done anything without thinking it through...

    Re: the dreaded unwanted advice

    Oh, everyone on here is so nice! I wish I was so nice! Well, I am sometimes. It depends on the situation and who I'm dealing with. Did your mom breastfeed, for example? No one in my family...
  14. Re: Refusing to nurse in certain positions on one side

    My son refused my right breast off and on during my maternity leave. I had the IBCLC over numerous times (which was not cheap) because he'd refuse for a couple days, or at least most of the day,...

    Re: where did i go wrong?

    Try to not think of it as asking your husband for "help." The baby is both of yours. It is as much his responsibility to do these things as yours, with the exception of nursing which he can't...
  16. Re: 18 mos pump weaning, confused and emotional

    I agree with mommal. If you're nursing 3 to 5 times a day, you can stop pumping (well, cut back gradually so you don't get plugged ducts or other issues). Lots of moms on here pump only until about...

    Re: where did i go wrong?

    How old is your LO? I know it's hard to think in these terms, but I've felt like you have many times (especially with the post-pregnancy hormones and exhaustion that made me emotional for a couple...
  18. Re: Providing Enough Expressed Milk for First Day Back at Wo

    With my first baby, I stashed the freezer with as much milk as I could. But then the pressure was on to use it (I ended up giving some of it away to a woman who needed it). This time, I didn't pump...

    Wow, what a great blog. There was one topic that my unscientific knowledge of nutrition always thought was missing from one "controversial" topic, as always seems to be the case with every food...

    Re: choice of baby monitor

    We bought an inexpensive video one from Target (Motorola I think). It was on clearance. It works great. We love it. We only use it for my toddler, but would have used it when she was a baby and...
  21. Re: 2 Yr Old only bf'ing, refuses all other liquids!

    Does your LO like popsicles? My LO loves them, and I would make some with pureed fruit and water or fruit juice for my daughter in the summer to get some extra liquids in her and as a healthy...
  22. Re: Cutting down pumping session at 8 months too soon?

    I have been thinking the same thing but I warn against doing it unless you're feeling like your supply is more than what you need. My LO is 5 months old. I generally pump too much milk, and my...
  23. Re: Feeling attacked by husband, dentist, and doctor

    Oh, yes -- the old "you have to fix this non-existent problem before it becomes a habit." I choose to get up at 5:00 a.m. for morning, but that doesn't mean I should stop because I may wake up every...

    Re: Information about Back to work

    Did you see the lactation consultant in person? She should help watch you pump to assess what might be going on. You may need a different size flange or something else might be up. Also, the LC...
  25. Re: Questions about pumping to increase supply

    How old is your LO? I may be missing it but am not seeing that anywhere. You seem to know about the signs of readiness for starting solids, so I'm guessing around 6 months. My DD never slept...
