    Kids this young should NOT be able to mess with mom :lol

  10. Re: New Mummy who need advise on breastfeeding

    I agree with babywearing! Luckily my husband is home, so I can get a break every now and then when I need to use the bathroom or eat, but it's still tough. The constant feeding doesn't last too long,...
  11. Re: New Mummy who need advise on breastfeeding

    It sounds like you're doing a wonderful job!!! At around 3 weeks or so, most newborns go through a growth spurt and feed a lot more than usual! Follow your baby's cues, feed when your babe wants to...

    Lala, that's me too! I just sit on the couch with the Boppy and...
  16. Re: Problems with friend's newborn breastfeeding

    I'm no expert, but, what first came to my mind is for her to nurse, nurse, and nurse some more. That is THE BEST way to increase milk supply. Pumping is not a good indicator of how much milk a mama...
