    Re: Still leaking

    Hi MaddieB and Midnightsangel, yes indeed I have done the ol' crossed arms trick to halt a letdown in public, but when helping people out it could be tricky as it's a gesture of being closed to the...

    Re: Told to switch to Nutramigen

    What a beautiful reply, Mommal! I would have hated that ad too. OP, yes, sometimes babies are fussy and there is nothing you can do about it. This might help about fussing at the breast:...

    Re: Where am I going wrong?

    Good luck, mama! You got some good advice here :) It may help to put things into perspective with the CDC and WHO growth charts. The US CDC recommends using the WHO growth charts for breastfed...

    Re: going back to work and logistics

    Hi Dormir41! Your DH has some of the story right, that formula has higher calories than breastmilk if one speaks of the watery foremilk, for example. Formula has the exact same number of calories...

    Re: Do I have an oversupply?

    Oh, mama, this has been hard! *hug* Glad you made it here, a safe and supportive place for bfing!

    Hi mama! You've been through a lot, congratulations on sticking to it this far! Two weeks old is still plenty young to learn good latching.
