  1. Re: Adoptive Breastfeeding - New Member

    You certainly can bring in milk without drugs. Some women have found that they can bring in more milk than others. You MUST have a hospital grade pump (not a pump in style) and be willing to pump...

    Re: One Year old Today!

    Yep! It took about 3 months to relactate and I never reached "exclusive" status, but I got down to almost no formula when it was time to start solids.

    Now, nursing is easy and fun and fixes...

  7. Re: Anyone else gaining weight or am I the only one???

    I gained, too and have heard it can be normal. You are right in knowing that it is all the sitting/laying/being with baby. Don't worry. This phase is very short lived. Try not to be frustrated...

    Re: 11 mo not interested!

    I was right there with you. Then one day ds decided that not only would he eat, he would eat three square meals a day. Now family members comment "I've never seen a baby eat like that!"

    So, you...

    Re: Still not latching...

    A-HEX, I thought about sending this as a private message, but then decided to go ahead and just lay it out there in front of everyone. I remember you saying that you wished that you could borrow a...
  10. Re: I am a doula & I need advice...

    Many babies don't take to solids until 10 or 11 months. Maybe longer. Don't worry that your 6 month old isn't wanting them, yet. He may not for many months and then one day, be delighted and pig...
  11. Re: When do they start cutting back on BM?

    My son does this when he is in-between growth spurts. Then one day, he will wake up HUNGRY!!! And for the next however many days, he will nurse, nurse, nurse, and eat, eat, eat.

    He has gone...

    Re: to wean???

    Okay, I am a little confussed. I am not sure which is the bigger concern on your part for the weight loss. Do you think it is primarily from taking so many things out of your diet or from nursing...

    Re: Need some encouragement

    Okay, my first thought is that maybe he really does not need the supplement. The LC said that he gained the minimum that is needed. Someone has to gain the minimum. Maybe he won't take the formula...
  14. Poll: Re: pumping and menstrual cycle, a poll

    Taking a Calcium before each meal and Magnesium after each meal (everyday) can reduce or prevent the dip in supply caused by AF. I had this happen for a few months. Add the minerals and I do not...

    I think this is bigger progress than you are making it out to be. She is exploring! That is how she will learn. Actually, I think your plan of continuing to offer the breast before giving the...

    Re: Still not latching...

    I'm crying, too. I wish I could just hug you. Don't feel bad about giving the bottle. You have to take care of her. She just doesn't understand, yet. I think you did the right thing.

    Did you...
  18. Re: So will my supply dwindle soon?

    Why would your supply dwindle? You are pumping at regular intervals and your body is used to the pump, right? I have read other moms on here that have EP for 18 months. I would guess that you...
  19. Re: How to increase pumping output?

    Surromom is right on with car pumping. I hook up to the pump, put my ring sling over my chest, and off I go. It takes a few times to get used to it, but it is not hard. This way, you get to work...

    I feel so personally your fear and disappointment. These are our babies -- who we want to take the BEST care of. We don't want to harm them in any way. It hurts so much to find out that they are...

    I am so excited!!! You may want to write down your goals and why and encouragements for yourself, because you are going to be so unbelievably tempted to give in and give the bottle when she is...
  22. Re: Relactating!! Can I have some support please?

    Actually, Hillary Jacobson says that this can lower supply in some women. Drink to thirst or 8-10 cups per day if you tend to ignore thirst. But excess water can lead to supply issues, too.
  23. Re: More Milk Special Blend?

    Ohh... that is the worst. I have told my mom that the expression "don't cry over spilled milk" only applies to cows. Two whole ounces?!?!?! I am so sorry!!!

    Wait a minute, I have heard that you don't mix shataveri with domperidone. I don't think it is safe.

    And yesterday I was in a quick hurry to post. I saw you had written and wanted to respond. ...
