    Re: blocked milk duct?

    Nursing your baby held in different positions can help unplug the duct, so if you normally hold your baby in the clutch hold try the football hold. You can also help to move the plug by lying your...

    Re: breastfeeding only from one breast

    Yes, your baby should be fine nursing from just one breast. I know of women who have done so. The lopsidedness will go when you stop nursing.
    Lots of babies display a preference for one breast...

    Re: Self weaning at 9mos?

    You have received some good replies here about nursing strikes which are really common and demand patience to get through. There are a lot of good moms' stories on this website with how to weather...
  5. Re: Eating constantly- I can't do this :(

    This is to be expected. Babies have high frequency days to boost your supply as they grow or because they just need you. Remember such a young baby's wants are his needs. I know it's frustrating when...

    Re: Forced to travel w/out baby

    Perhaps you might give your boss some information about the dangers to your health from plugged ducts and mastitis that can lead to abscess if your breasts are not drained regularly.
    You would need...

    Re: Need help with low milk supply

    Keeping your baby close and feeding very frequently - a nursing holiday - can boost your supply very quickly within a few days. Try to ignore any one who makes negative comments about your baby...
  9. Re: Guess I'll start this here party... :P

    Anaemia is uncommon in the breastfed baby. As Doris says, although the amount of iron in breast milk is small, it is well absorbed-between 20 and 40%, as opposed to only 4 % absorbed from...

    Re: Green poop?? 17 days old

    Consistently green stools in the breastfed baby can indicate:
    • an imbalance of foremilk/hindmilk, often resulting in frothy green stools.
    • a sensitivity to something in the mother's diet, such...
  11. Re: Guess I'll start this here party... :P

    I am long term breastfeeding mother too and believe in natural weaning, but I just wanted to point out to any new moms visiting this site that most moms don't set out with a goal to breastfeed for x...

    Re: Problems Latching my Baby...

    I feel for you! My baby was a non latcher too and none of the accepted techniques worked. But being stubborn I persevered and around 6 weeks he just got the hang of it.

    Just because breastfeeding...
  13. Re: My 18 month old still wakes to nurse at 4:00am!

    Just to say I agree with whoever said 'this too shall pass'. If you 'give in' to your child now and nurse when he wants, then he will gradually cut back. Sometimes a few months can seem like years...

    Re: My baby is a beggar and a snatcher!

    Yes, I don't think it is so important what comes first, especially as they are just tastes. Try all in small amounts. I suggested bananas as they are so easy to mush up, but sweet potato, broccoli,...

    Re: human pacifier

    The early months can be hard and frustrating when you can't get anything done in between nursings. I'm going through this again now too. Breasts are what nature intended for pacifying babies though!...

    Re: I want to wean my son...

    The amount of drugs getting into your milk is negligible and the benefits of breastfeeding far outweigh any benefits to be gained by his not being subjected to these tiny amounts of drugs.

    With regard to the reflux: One cause of reflux is delayed emptying of the stomach and breast milk has been found to empty from the stomach more quickly than solids.

    Re: My baby is a beggar and a snatcher!

    Have you tried banana? Peeling and squishing is easy and I think fruit is probably more nutritious than cereal.
  19. Re: *I stopped breastfeeding, Now I want to start back*

    It is great that you still want to nurse your baby. It can take time and persistence but you will do it if it's important to you.

    Perhaps herbs might help, but babies learn to breastfeed by...

    Re: My baby is a beggar and a snatcher!

    Breast milk is the most important food in your baby’s diet for the first year of his life.

    It is a myth that baby food manufacturers are keen for mothers to believe that breast milk is...
