    Re: SO WORRIED about baby's weight

    It does work for some people. I am one of them. However, I kinda doubt your situation calls for it. It really sounds to me like you could simply nurse a bit more frequently and not need to do...

    Re: SO WORRIED about baby's weight

    Re: When Pumping/Daycare doesn't work

    Problem is that most of the farm work I can have others do, still requires my supervision at least to an extent.
    It is the harvest/packaging of orders a couple mornings per week that I need the...

    Re: SO WORRIED about baby's weight

    Yes definitely nurse more often.
    AND YES YOU CAN WAKE BABY TO NURSE! That whole line about never wake a sleeping baby is for older babies and doesn't apply to breastfeeding Momma's in any case!!!!...

    Re: Constipation after starting solids

    I really push prunes and prune juice (it is the only juice DS gets) since he tends to constipation ever since solids started. He is 12 months now and we are still breast feeding frequently but he...

    Hang in there! At least he is old enough to be able to tell you and seems happy to have something else to fill up while snuggling and then nurse more for comfort. You are such a great momma!
  17. Re: Changing Nursing from On Demand to Scheduled - Supply Im

    If you are pushing to a schedule of 2-2.5 hours instead of your normal, you probably will experience a dip in supply. How much of a problem that might be would depend on many factors. "scheduled"...

    Re: Should I be concerned?

    What sort of milk is she getting in those two 6 oz bottles at Daycare?
    Are you pumping that much when she is at daycare?
    (By the way, 6 oz bottles are HUGE for a breastfed baby no matter what age.)...
