    Re: Breasts not emptying

    Thank you. I'm also wondering if I should continue on last breast instead of the other one when she next feeds?

    Breasts not emptying

    My 3rd baby is 7 days old. Milk came in on day 2. While they are not as engorged as that first time, they are quite knotty and are not feeling soft after feedings. Should I knead my breasts or use...

    Re: Feeling torn...

    Thanks, ladies :). Right now, we're both sick and at home, so I will be nursing more than usual today, for sure! Thing is, he'll always take the breast, but is perfectly fine without it all day,...

    Re: Feeling torn...

    No, I'm wondering if I nurse more will I get a better supply. My 2 cycles have been very regular right away because I hadn't had one in almost 2 years. I'm not worried about that :)

    Re: Feeling torn...

    Mostly for nap and for a looong time :). I really just wanted to night wean, but he doesn't nurse all day anymore, which is what I'm considering again. Well, not ALL day, but enough to get some...

    Feeling torn...

    I like to nurse as long as I can. With #1, I nursed until 25 months, 2 months into my next pregnancy. I had to night wean and get him down to 2 nursing sessions a day, though, to get my cycles back,...

    Re: catching the first egg

    I'm now 11 dpo, but had a question for those who chart. Since I wasn't ttc, I wasn't charting; however, I had fertile cm, a + opk, high open soft cervix, and then a drying up of everything (when I...

    catching the first egg

    So, I find myself here again, having sex right before first postpartum ovulation. Last time, this resulted in a chemical pregnancy, or a very early m/c. I'm not charting yet and had vowed to wait a...

    OK, thanks :). All I'm hearing is, "remember the scene in the Shining at the elevators"? Ack!
  12. Ovulating after 21 months postpartum

    If I don't get pregnant this cycle (first one since having my second child), I'm preparing myself for a heavy and painful period. That's what I've heard anyway. Is this the norm and why is it so...
  13. Re: Nursing at night causing growth delay?

    Thanks. I'm sure it's not the only reason why he's small, but it might not be helping. He takes two naps/day each, about an hour or so long and nurses before each one.
  14. Nursing at night causing growth delay?

    Have any of you heard this? If baby doesn't have a good amount of hours of sleep/night it can compromise growth? I guess it's not just sleeping but eating every few hours, too. My toddler is very...

    Re: Weaning toddler to increase weight

    The measurements have been wonky from the beginning. He was measured 3x this last time, so I know it's right. Last visit, who knows? He's still small, but I know that's irrelevant unless he's...

    Weaning toddler to increase weight

    My Ped has suggested doing this since my 15 month old did not grow between 12 and 14 months. He gained ounces, but no height. He is within normal range of milestones and Ped says he looks "great"...

    Re: Weird breast pain

    You still could have thrush. I had that early on and the only indication was the pain you're describing. I put diluted grapefruit seed extract on my nipples and it went away. Sometimes I still feel...
  20. Does extended bfing lead to longer fertility?

    Just a general question. I bfed my first for 25 months (a couple months into my next pregnancy). I had to cut way down at 19 months to ovulate for second pregnancy. I am now 38 nursing a 10 month...

  22. Re: 4.5 m.o. cycling through multiple letdowns while sleepin

    I forgot to mention he's been spitting up after these nursing/napping sessions, so I'm wondering if I'm "overfeeding" him.
  23. 4.5 m.o. cycling through multiple letdowns while sleeping.

    Anything wrong with having 4.5 m.o. cycle through multiple letdown s while napping? Sometimes I get engrossed with a crossword, magazine, or LLLI.org ;-) and don't notice babe still on my breast...

    Should everyone use galactogogues?

    I have no reason to believe I have low supply, but my bfed babies do tend to be on the small side. Should everyone just try fenugreek, etc., to try to make the most milk possible, or is it just not...
  25. How much does baby get in a swallow?

    Okay, I've always wanted to know, how much is generally swallowed by an infant when they bfeed? I try to guess how many ozs. my 4 m.o. is getting each session but I don't know the avg. amt. they...
