  3. Re: is biting and pulling sign of low supply?

    Thank you for your input!

  8. Help-it hurts! Ok to feed on on one side for now?

    Hi. Dd is 2 days old. She is my second. Unfortunately I was too confident (or too tired) the first night and allowed a shallow latch while sidelying. Now I have cracks on both sides. With ds it took...

    I know everyone always says watch the baby not the clock--but isn't that normally advice you give if someone is prone to not feeding often enough? What about someone who is trying to feed more...
