    Re: Pumping Chit Chat II

    I've seen that, but haven't tried it. The only shipping option open for these was the standard 3-5 business days. I did email them (its a 3rd party) to see if they can send it sooner. :gvibes

    Happy Friday everyone!

    I just ordered smaller shields. I've been hurting all week, and it just occurred to me this morning that I might need a smaller size. Almost my whole areola is sucked into...
  3. Re: Increasing milk after decongestant?

    I have added a pumping session within a couple of hours of Gavyn's bedtime, and I'm trying to nurse him whenever we can. But now my boobs are super sore! Here's my current schedule:

    Re: Pumping Chit Chat II

    Oh Susan, hope you get better and Gavin stays healthy! :hug

    I'm really down about my supply being down. It seems to be slowly improving, but now my boobs are major sore from all the pumping and...
  5. Re: Increasing milk after decongestant?

    Nope, I knew about that one, just not the decongestants. I'll definitely do the oatmeal, and probably swing by the health food store for the tea. The fenugreek and blessed thistle just seem to be...
  6. Increasing milk after decongestant?

    It seems I've done something stupid, and I didn't even think about it. I've been miserable with a cold/allergies since the middle of last week. I've been taking sudafed and nyquil off and on since...

    Well I was going to post something here about having supply issues and then I read Susan's post about decongestant. No wonder I've been having low supply today! I've been miserable the past few...

    Re: Pumping Chit Chat....

    Happy Monday to everyone! I've been taking Fenugreek and Blessed Thistle, and now it appears to have backfired on me. I feel at least one clogged duct on my right side (the big producer). If I...

    Re: Baby Acne Remedies?

    I just let it go away on its own. My ped said it was just the pores flushing things out from the womb, and that it would be just fine after a while. Soap and water is all I would use, if anything.

    Re: Pumping Chit Chat....

    When I had a blister it was miserable! I used neosporin for pain and healing, and also lanolin. It took about a week though before it felt okay again.

    :hug So sorry mama! I know that really stinks. You can cry over spilt milk!! I don't know about the bottles though, 'cause I really just use the bags to store. Maybe the medela storage bottles?

    This is still really early in the production time. Drink lots and lots of water and nurse nurse nurse. Then there's always oatmeal, blessed thistle, and fenugreek if baby's weight or diaper count...

    Re: Pumping Chit Chat....

    Right there with you science teacher! No bottles to clean for 2 days, yay! I may have to pump before bed though. Last night G slept until 4 am, which really made me uncomfortable. With the way...
  15. Re: Sitter wants more, possibly over fee

    Shouldn't there be a nap in here? Take out that 2 hours, and he really probably only needs 1 bottle, so it does seem like overfeeding to me.

    On getting more, there are lots of little tricks. ...

    Re: I didn't pump enough!

    :hug mama! Going back to work is tough, and I know the stress of making sure you have enough for the next day! I work 8-5 and typically get 12-15oz. I leave Gavyn 2 8oz bottles, so I have to pump...

    Anybody else going to be affected by Irene?
  18. Re: 3 month old nor nursing as much

    If he just finished a growth spurt, it may just be that he's getting enough from you now and doesn't need to nurse as long. Also Gavyn doesn't nurse very well when he's sick and/or teething. You...

    Re: red spot on nipple?

    Thrush is completely treatable though, so you shouldn't give up! You just need to treat baby and yourself, and clean everything if you're pumping. From what I've heard diflucan works the best, but...
  20. Re: Is this nursing pattern normal?

    Gavyn has done exactly what you've described when he's super hungry. How old is your little girl? Could it maybe be a growth spurt? If it was just the one time I wouldn't worry. :)

    Re: Help me please?

    It does sound like a growth spurt. They just cry and cry, and nurse every hour on the hour, but never seem to be full. But if diaper output is good and baby is gaining, then there is no need to...

    :ita with the pps. It does get better! It may be thrush, but the bruising and pain could also be a blocked milk duct. That is pretty painful too. If your doctor says no thrush, then try a heating...
