  1. Re: I am very concerned I am going to have to supplement :(

    Have you changed anything? Started or stopped a medication? Is baby seeming satisfied? Its very common for babies to wet less frequently, poop less frequently, and for mother's to stop feeling...

    Re: Night Sweats

    Twiddling

    OMG, I am going to pull my hair out. W was a twiddler, but it started young and it was always just his other hand. I thought I was in the clear with G but around 12 months she found the other boob...

    Re: No more nipple shield!

    Isn't it kind of a bittersweet ending? I mean, on one hand you're so happy not to have the hassle, but on the other hand you can't actually see milk! I used a shield with my first for 2.5 months,...

    Re: Would you bring a pump on vacation?

    I wouldn't take it. I don't pump now, but I did with my first, and I never took my pump with me. I always figured if I didn't have it, I would always find a way to make do nursing! I'm sure...

    Re: Warming milk a second time

    I've read its okay to reheat it once as long as it wasn't frozen milk, and within 24 hours of the first warming.

    Re: weaning off a nipple shield

    I used a nipple shield with my first and used a combination of both the methods you suggested. I would try to get my dd to latch on to my bare nipple first, and if she wouldn't then I would use the...

    Re: The twiddling just got worse

    Ds was a twiddler, big time I allowed it when he was little but it got so bad I resented him. When I had dd2 I never let her, and I thought we were past it. She found the other nipple about 2 weeks...

    I've intro'd all the "nuts", including pea-nuts, at 1. But we have no family history of allergies. :gvibes

    Re: feeling sad

    Haylee didn't nurse for almost 6 months and she started nursing again. I seriously didn't think it was possible, but she did it. :shrug

    Weaning is such a hard thing. I really thought I would be...

    Re: Dysphoric milk ejection reflex

    I get terrible anxiety right at letdown, but only during the day, not at night. Like, I mean it doesn't wake me up. And its faded as my letdown has decreased in intensity and the babies have gotten...

    Re: The "F" word.

    Well, you will probably still have to pump 3 times a day, for 20 minutes or so at least, each time. And if you don't have enough milk, you can supplement. But I had progressively more milk with each...

    Re: Exclusively Pumping

    I know the look you're talking about. And it makes sense you would get that while nursing and not pumping, I think--you know, because YOU don't feel the same emotion either, so you might not let...

    Re: Exclusively Pumping

    I haven't EP'ed, and I certainly :clap who has had to do it. But I still think breast is best, if for no other reason than the ease of it vs. pumping.

    Re: EP: Sore Nipples

    I had sore nipples with both of my first two, too. Its actually a good theory, Karen. I did not with Gwynevere, but her latch wasn't any better than Waylon's as far as I could tell. Haylee was a...

    Is Logan still nursing? I was just thinking maybe he could help the letdown when you're pumping. And I would try turning the suction down a bit. I know when I...

  20. Re: OTC cold meds that are ok for breastfeeding

    I've been taking mucinex with no effect on my supply. I'm not sure why it would affect supply--its not an antihistamine. :shrug On kellymom it says you can take phenylephrine but not pseudoephedrine....

    Oh, I love that position! I like to sit in the recliner, with a pillow under the arm that was cradling the baby. Then I could use the other hand to get baby positioned and latched on. And then we...
