    This may be a coincidence, but:

    Re: advice? help? support? milk fistula.

    & I will add--that all looks like great information, and you are VERY smart to be careful about infection. As my radiologist told me after infection had set in, "milk is a culture medium." It's bad...

    Re: advice? help? support? milk fistula.

    Thanks, Susan--and I'm sorry you had to go through this, too. If I knew then what I know now, I would have waited (the mass they were biopsying looked cystic from the ultrasound; I had a cyst in a...

    Re: 4.5 month olds

    Our almost 5 month old's sleep has been very odd--he wasn't sleeping through the night but he was getting there, and this week he's been waking up every two hours or less, sometimes wanting to nurse...

    refrigerated then frozen?

    I have some milk I pumped day before yesterday and then stuck it in the fridge (so it's separated). Is it okay to freeze it now, or did I miss my chance?

    advice? help? support? milk fistula.

    I don't know if I'm looking for advice or just a there-there. I posted earlier about my breast biopsy. The lab results there are all-clear, absolutely benign, I'm happy to say.

    But the physical...

    Re: Not Again! (Kinda long!)

    This is a late answer, but--

    I wonder if what you're describing is the result of circulation being cut off by a poor latch and an enthusiastic nurser. I had that: he latched on and nursed and it...

    Re: Breast Pain

    I found moist heat and self massage worked wonders for plugged ducts--I found a heating pad that had an insert you could soak with water that was great.

    Re: breast biopsy--advice?

    Thank you so much for that--I had a feeling that it was a knee jerk answer, since they didn't seem to think it was such a big deal, and they said they almost never deal with nursing mothers. I'm...

    breast biopsy--advice?

    I've just found out that I need to have a biopsy on a lump in my breast next week--a better safe than sorry thing. What's mostly stressing me out is that because of the painkiller (lidocaine) I've...

    swimming pool chlorine and bf

    I'd like to get back to exercise--is there any problem with swimming in a chlorinated pool and then breastfeeding, if I rinse very well? Anyone with any experience?

    thanks as always!

    Re: ouch--bendy bitey baby

    I don't think he's distracted--he generally does it in the middle of the night with his eyes closed. So maybe a little breast compression will help!

    He's had another hard early evening. One of...

    Re: very very VERY hungry baby
