    Re: A bit worried ...

    and according to the chart that i just checked, if your DS is 13 lbs 13 oz at 4 mos, that would put him at roughly the 25th percentile... that's not too shabby for a baby who started out at 6 lbs...

  9. Re: advice needed on oversupply one one side.

    woah! thanks for the heads-up. sounds like one person out of four were happy with them. i think i'll stick to my lansinoh. they are super-thin and absorb well and are almost invisible under...
  10. Re: Mastitis right around the corner - help!

    i haven't found much online to corroborate my feelings but after 19 bouts with mastitis with DD and one so far with DS, i have found that as soon as engorgement and swollen lumpy breasts occur (for...
  11. Re: advice needed on oversupply one one side.

    thanks... and it's nice to know that i'm not the only one rolling around in my own milk at night! i found that lansinoh breast pads absorb the best. (with regular pads, i can go through a box of 30...

    Re: Stubborn baby??

    the side-lying position is a life-saver. i find a good trick for stepping away to get a much-needed shower or brush your teeth or what-have-you is to make sure you have some really firm cusions...
  14. Re: advice needed on oversupply one one side.

    thanks so much... as usual, you have the answers! :) so i won't do that then. i just wish i could stop the leakage. so much leaks out (at all times -- not just while nursing and even when not...

    most cell phones have an alarm feature... you could put it under your pillow maybe? that would work if you aren't a light sleeper.

  18. Re: Does anyone else "sting" when their milk comes in?

    tingling or a stinging can happen when your milk lets down especially if you have a strong LD.
