    Re: Hates being covered

    I use one of these. http://www.facebook.com/prettywellcovered
    We LOVE it! First, they are cute and stylish. Second, it's discrete enough so people don't realize what I'm doing, they are not an...
  2. Re: Need more suggestions for increasing supply?

    I only pump at home when she eats solids for a meal. I'll pump enough to make cereal with. Otherwise, she's on the boob. :) I have to pump at work though.

    Thank you Joshuasmommy! I will offer...
  3. Need more suggestions for increasing supply?

    Baby girl will be 7 months in a few days. She is still a BM baby, chubby, happy and healthy with normal diapers. :clap No formula at all yet. We introduced solids (mostly cereal) about 3 weeks...

    Re: Aching, Tingling and Pain

    I don't think it's thrush, we don't have any other symptoms. It's doesn't hurt, per say, and it only lasts a few seconds. And it's a different feeling than my usual let-down, which is more of a...

    Re: Aching, Tingling and Pain

    I have been having similar pain and came here to do some looking around for answers before I posted a question! Sometimes my "burning" pain in my breasts (not nipples) is when I'm pumping, sometimes...

    Re: Bad reflux and cow's milk

    I could not eat dairy with my first 2. (Or meat, or acidic foods, or foods that made me gassy like lima beans. It's part of the reason why I stopped BFing them at 10 weeks). I took a basic calcium...

    Re: Just one breast...

    I thought I would give an update, thought it may help others out there. Baby girl was 4 months on the 23rd of May, and she is a VERY healthy 16 lbs and 25.75 inches long. She's 90 or 95th...

    Well, after a few days, things are still pretty much the same. At least they aren't worse! I've been sticking to a pump/nurse every 3-3.5 hours...

    Re: Just one breast...

    No. :( Once I get the 2 picked up from the sitter, I have to make sure I have my oldest picked up from latchkey at the school. We have a rough schedule and no extra family around to help.

    Re: Just one breast...

    Technically yes, 12 hours is about the max she is at the sitters (I work 10 hour days). For example today - I breastfed her at 6:30, she ate for about 10 minutes. I dropped her off at 7:15. She...

    Re: Just one breast...

    Yeah you're telling me! I think it's because he's jealous. She's happier when I'm feeding her, whether it be boob or bottle. She just fusses soemtimes when he feeds her, so it's easy to blame me. ...

    Just one breast...

    Ok, so we have surpassed the 12 week mark! :clap This is my Baby #3, and with the first two, I started supplementing at 4 weeks and quit BFing completely at 10 weeks. #3 is still strictly a BM...

    Pumping, chilling, reheating?

    So right now I'm pumping at work (Mon-Thursdays, every 3-4 hours). Whatever I pump goes into bottles for the next day when #3 stays with a babysitter or my husband. Pumped milk at work goes into a...
  14. Re: Eating so often--don't think we can make

    I had no idea OS lead to foamy poop! (did I read that on this thread or another?) #3 had that on a regular basis the first 3-4 weeks. She also was showing signs of OALD (gagging, choking,...

    Re: Sore nipple, rock hard boobs :(

    Knock on wood, I haven't had any plugged ducts so far with baby #3. But with #1 and #2, I got them a lot. All. The. Time. Part of the reason why I quit BFing so soon. I would always stand in a...

    Re: Reflux or forceful let down

    My babe has also been doing this, and she's 7 weeks tomorrow. She does it to the point where she doesn't take any breaths for about 20 seconds and the spit up is coming out her nose. A lot of...

    Yep, my arm goes numb if I try to cradle hold without support for too long. I use a boppy or other pillows for support under her body, and angle my arm under her head. I also curl one leg up behind...

    Things are going AMAZINGLY WELL!

    I wanted to give those struggling some encouragement, because I feel like I'm proof that it CAN get better! It's always good to hear a pesimists success story, right?

    sugarfoot, I'm glad you got out and enjoyed our beautiful Ohio spring weather last night! I did too. :)

    Soemthing that isn't nipple related at all, but my husband noticed that if the BM isn't warm enough, our daughter will gag, cough, choke, and then refuse the bottle (she is almost...

    Re: Vitamin supplements

    I've not seen just the Vitamin D supplement only. Just the nasty poly and tri vi sol. I prefer unflavored meds, and meds with no dyes. I may have to look for that!

    Re: Vitamin supplements

    I think most peds say breastfed babies need a Vitamin D supplement (poly or tri vi sol). I offered it to my daughter, who is now 6, and she hated it. I never used it with my son, and won't use it...
