    Re: Recurrent plugged milk ducts

    I've never used underwire bras and go braless when I'm not at work or out in public and still get clogs and in weird spots like right on top. I've gone almost two weeks now though without a clog...

    Re: How to build a frozen supply of milk?

    I used to just do an extra pump in the morning between feedings. Usually your milk supply is much higher in the morning. I would get a good 4 ozs in one sitting that way. Not sure how often you want...

    Re: Q for Moms in Northern climate

    Our pharmacist told us there is no "just D" supplement yet. We live in Maine and were also recommended to give the vitamin drops. Our dd hates them. We give them when we remember (like maybe once a...

    Re: Night weaning

    Thats a good point I hadn't even thought of. If I do pump, it is just like nursing so my body won't really back off will it? I'll try just pumping a little - I'm guessing your doctor meant for maybe...

    Re: Recurrent plugged milk ducts

    Hi Kate,

    Thanks so much for your reply and the links. I found the LLL one and the one on lecithin very interesting. I'd seen the Kellymom one before. I do use massage and compression everytime I...

    Night weaning

    Hi...I've been working on trying to get my dd to sleep through the night rather than snacking all night long. When we have been able to go longer stretches I often feel engorged by morning. Is this...

    Re: Co-Sleeping & Waking every 1/2 hour?

    Your dd sounds just like mine! My lo is 9 months old. I nurse her to sleep and for the first stretch she will go typically to about 1am. I'll nurse her again to sleep and she'll last til about 3 and...

    Recurrent plugged milk ducts

    Has anyone else dealt with this? I seem to get at least one or more per week. I've gotten better at noticing them right away and working them out, but if I don't it can take a couple days to get...

    Re: building milk supply

    I built my supply up by pumping for 15 minutes every morning. Your body produces the most breast milk during that time - I think its from 3am to 10am and since you're always producing BM, you really...

    Re: Which breast pump to buy???

    Re: Which bottle/nipple do you recommend?

    I use Avent bottles with the slowest flow nipple they have and my DD has been fine with that. She only uses bottles 2 to 3 days per week as I only work part time and has not had any nipple confusion...

    Re: sore nipples from pumping

    I use a PIS pump and I have to keep it at the very lowest setting to avoid any nipple pain. The one time I tried turning it up I actually tore my nipple. The pumpmoms discussion group I am on...

    Re: Need to have some dental work done...

    I'm not clear from your post what it is the dentist will be giving you that is concerning to you. Not sure if this will help, but I had some dental work done recently - fillings. I have to take an...
  16. Re: Is it common for babies to be so unpredictable?

    Oh yes, I can so relate to this! My DD who is almost 4 months is soooo unpredictable! No day is ever the same. Just when I think we've got a pattern down, she goes and changes it. I think she does it...
  17. Re: How many times per day an infant should eat?

    I'd never heard of the "feed 8 times per day" recommendation. I was always told to feed on demand - when baby asks to eat, feed her, and as long as she is going through enough diapers per day and...

    Timber ~ I eat peanut butter every single day, lots of it - I love it. We also have no family history of allergies and our DD has been fine. I'd researched this as well and discussed with our pedi...
  19. Re: how much milk does a baby consume in one feeding?

    I'm no expert and can only tell you what I've experienced. Keeping in mind that every baby is different, my DD who is 14 weeks old has been taking about 4 ozs per feeding according to our DC provider...
  20. Re: "Angry" Feedings / Puking - Help! I'm panicking!

    Thanks for explaining the block feeding idea. I saw it mentioned but didn't quite understand what it meant. I sort of ended up doing it that way anyway this evening as she was wanting to be fed every...
  21. Re: Engorgement/Supply & Sleeping Through The Night

    I'd been wondering the same thing so I guess its a pretty common question. I had been pumping at night to relieve the engorgement but the more I read about the supply/demand cycle I decided I'd...
  22. Re: "Angry" Feedings / Puking - Help! I'm panicking!

    Wow, I wish I'd looked at this message board a long time ago! This thread sounds like it may be exactly what I've been experiencing with my dd. I tried talking to friends/family but they kept...
