    Re: Normal feeds?

    I think it sounds pretty normal. The more solids your son eats, the less milk he will be needing as well. He probably is interested in lots of other things now. As longs as he is still nursing and...

    Re: latching

    Good for you to be nursing your LO! You say that you do pump, so I'm curious as to why you are supplementing? Nursing is supply and demand and the low supply issue may be due to the supplementing. ...

    Re: frustrated with ob doc

    I agree with previous poster. DO NOT TAKE an antibiotic if it isn't mastitis. That's how I ended up with thrush. DO go get the acidophilus and double up the dosage on the bottle. I took two pills...

    Re: need advice

    I agree, don't doubt your decision. As long is baby is maintaining weight you are doing fine. Keep offering breast when baby wants which may sometimes feel like that's all you do for a while. This...
