    Re: 11 month old still nurse??

    Agree with PP. In general, juice is mostly sugar and contains alot of "empty" calories. You would do much better to introduce water -- and let your darling LO get his fruit intake from actual fruit...

    Re: I HAAATE pumping

    Beth, Hugs to you. Pumping is hard. It's not 'graceful' or particularly pleasant and yes, it does very emphatically remind you that you are not there with your LO. It's even worse when the...

    Re: Sleep-deprived working mom needs to vent

    Jennifer, I feel your pain. Truly!! I don't have alot of answers, but I can empathize and reassure you that you are not alone. Exactly one year ago, when J was 6 months old, I was still getting up...

  7. Re: just pumped for the first time - quick ques

    Hi Jackie, Welcome!
    It's really impossible to say whether any given output is "normal" or not. What is normal for one momma is different from another, kwim? If this is the first time you pumped,...

    Re: PMS from Weaning?

    Hi Amy_B. Welcome to the forum. I'm sorry you are going through this; weaning is hard enough - physically and emotionally!

    I think that yes, there really could be some hormonal impact here. Keep...
  9. Re: Estrogen lowering milk supply: soy to blame???

    Have you recently drastically increased your soy consumption?? If not, I would hesitate to think that soy is the cause. But you say "high soy diet". How high is "high"?

    FWIW, I'm a long-time...

    Re: achey arm pits??

    It could indeed be milk related. Have you tried doing a full and fairly deep (but be gentle enough not to hurt yourself) massage in that area? Milk ducts do indeed extend up into the underarms area....

    Re: "gagging" after nursing

    We saw alot of this, in a variety of incarnations, with DS. As previous posters have noted, it can be related to drooling - or even just to experimenting after finding that fingers can indeed be...

    Re: What to Do During Coughs During Nursing

    Agree with the previous posters. It does sound like this could be related to a strong milk ejection reflex (MER) or over active letdown (OALD). When your baby comes off your nipple to cough, do you...

    Re: My son hates cows milk

    Inititially, my DS did not take well to cow's milk either and he also spit it out when we offered it to him.

    If you single pump, then sure. That wouldn't be a bad idea. If you can double pump, go ahead and do both at once. That would be my suggestion....

  17. Re: Is it ok to freeze BM that's been in fridge for up to 8-10 hours?

    Yes, absolutely this is fine to do. I would try not to have the EBM in the fridge for more than a day or two before freezing it, but if you keep it in the coldest part of the refrigerator, don't...
