  1. Re: Pumping with no output to increase supply

    It should help. Every time you pump, you are signaling your body to increase the production of prolactin, which is the hormone responsible for milk production.

    Can you tell us more about your...
  2. Re: Weaning toddler to increase weight

    I don't get your doc's rationale at all. When you suspect that a child is not taking in enough calories, why would you remove one sure source of balanced nutrition from his diet?

    I also don't...
  3. Re: Help couldn't get rid of the plugged duct or lump..

    :ita with LLLMeg. Please don't let the plug scare you! Sometimes it just takes a while for a plug to go away completely. The fact that it gets smaller after nursing is a very good sign- it means...
  4. Re: Supply Issues during Baby-Led Weaning

    Welcome to the forum!

    A lot of moms start out with massive oversupply, but by the time their babies are a year old most of them are down to having just enough. Our bodies are smart, and they...
  5. Re: Pedi says DD not gaining enough? Pls advice.

    :ita I am likewise irritated. You were doing great and your pediatrician decided to sabotage you. When she told you that "Not all cries mean hunger", she should have followed it up by saying "but...

    Welcome to the forum and congratulations on the baby!

    It's awesome that you have decided to pursue relactation. It takes a lot of strength to try again! Luckily, it seems like you have a lot...

    Awesome! Congratulations on making it through a whole year of hard work!!!
  9. Re: Nipple Pain BETWEEN Feeding Sessions But Not During

    I don't think so. Maybe talk to your doctor, a lactation consultant, and your child's pediatrician first? I'm loathe to have someone embark on a course of treatment that they may not need, so I'd...

    Re: Some advice

    That's what my oldest did when she was outgrowing her nap! I assumed all kids needed to nap until around age 5, because that's how long I napped. Turns out my oldest outgrew the nap at around age...
  11. Re: Nipple Pain BETWEEN Feeding Sessions But Not During

    Welcome to the forum!

    When I hear that a mom has burning/stinging pain in between feedings, I immediately think thrush or vasospasm. It sounds like you've ruled out both, so I am left with either...

    Re: I'm nursing toddlers again!!

    Awesome, mama!!! People always say things like "Well, no-one is going to give you a medal for breastfeeding," but in your case, someone darn well should!!!

    Re: New Here! Help! Feeling So Lost!

    Welcome to the forum and congratulations on the new baby!

    First, I think you should focus on what is going right! Your baby's bili levels are coming down. You're feeding baby exclusively on...
  14. Re: Weight gain concerns, Dr.'s scheduled feeding suggestion

    Welcome to the forum and congratulations on the new baby!

    I agree 100% that your doctor's advice makes no sense. There is no evidence that shows that less frequent feedings increases weight gain....
  15. Re: How did you get your toddler in his/her own bed?

    :ita My guess is that you don't live in a single room mud hut, so... How about the kitchen? Living room? Guest room? Shower stall? Get creative and you could have fun with this!!!
  16. Re: Want to build stash but scared of oversupply again

    It's generally recommended that moms wait at least 4-6 weeks before introducing bottles and pumps into their nursing relationship. You want to make sure nursing is going really, really well before...

    Re: Do you still ovulate while BF

    Yes, you can still ovulate without getting your period. You can also get your period and not ovulate! Since you've only had 1 postpartum period, I would suggest being patient for a while. It can...
  18. Re: nursing schedule? almost 4 month old

    There's no "should" in this situation. Doesn't matter if your baby is a chunky monkey or a skinny minnie. Babies have erratic feeding frequencies because they have tiny tummies, because breastmilk...
  19. Re: Toddler weaning but won't drink cow's milk

    Will she eat yogurt or cheese? If so, there's no need to feed her liquid animal milk.

    You can also meet her fat/calcium needs with other solids- you can ask your pediatrician for suggestions.

    Re: Nursing Problems

    Some babies will pull back into a shallow latch because that helps them control milk flow. It's like crimping a hose in order to slow down the flow of water. Have you tried nursing in very reclined...

  22. Re: poop less seedy after taking stored breast milk

    :ita with LLLMeg!

    I just want to add my voice to the "stop worrying about hindmilk" chorus. Foremilk and hindmilk are convenient terms, but they miss all the nuance and they make moms worry for...

    Re: Foremilk/Hindmilk Imbalance Help.

    Okay, so before you start block feeding, you want to know for sure that his weight gain is normal or above average. So how about stopping by the doctor's office for a weigh-in? (Remember, all...

    Re: baby and allergen s

    I'm so sorry, mama. That must have been very scary! Can you describe the poop a little more? Were you seeing streaks or flecks of blood? Or was this poop where the entire stool was red? Was it...

    Re: Foremilk/Hindmilk Imbalance Help.


    For moms considering block nursing, you want to be 100% sure that you have an oversupply, because the way block nursing corrects foremilk/hindmilk "imbalance" is by reducing supply. It is...
