    Re: low supply in one breast

    it really doesn't bother me much, especially since we are far into the game. if she were 3 months old, i would know it was a long road ahead.. but since we are like, half way through, it isn't an...

    low supply in one breast

    so after all of my oversupply issues, i am realizing that juniper has been favoring the right side. i now get daytime leaking and lopsided, big boob syndrome on the right.
    BUT-
    my left side,...
  3. Re: birth control shot expired, what to expect?

    haha thanks! after i got a negative test last night, i had myself a good glass of wine and thought to myself, "gee, i'm not really going to get that parent of the year award after all, am i..."
  4. birth control shot expired, what to expect?

    i have been on the shot since just after juniper was born, and have not had a period since... well, before she was conceived. she is 10 mos old now.
    well i accidentally let my time pass, and should...
  5. daytime nursing has always been a struggle for us.

    anyone else out there have a little one who hates to nurse if he/she isn't ready for a nap or bed? juniper likes to nurse only when she wants to sleep, so before naptimes and before bedtime, and when...

    hiya tallmadre!
    i want to go out on a limb here to say that when i first began nursing, i'd say around the first 1-3 months, i would get a lot of tightening in my vagina. it was similar to the...

    Re: Endless energy baby :)

    Re: can oversupply = overfeeding?

    mommal-
    yes, it is distressing me! i guess i thought that by 9.5 mos she wouldn't be spitting up any longer, and now that she is having solids, it is throwing up as well as spit up. i have never...
  9. Re: BFing constantly and not eating solids at 9 months corre

    i agree with mommal. i think that "starving her out" isn't a great idea. it might just give her the blues instead of allowing more room for solids. i really think an early baby needs the extra few...

    Re: can oversupply = overfeeding?

    i guess i'm asking if i'm overfilling her. if she is sleep-suckling, and getting milk out, but is only sucking because she is asleep, wouldn't this result in too much milk?
    last night i nursed her...

    can oversupply = overfeeding?

    juniper has always spit up bunches. even when she was a newborn. i've always let her finish one breast (which she usually ends up falling asleep at) then waking to offer the other breast. she ALWAYS...

    Re: Thumb Sucking While Nursing?

    this has to be really frustrating, but this is really cute, too. juniper used to do that and it made me batty. she outgrew it. looking back, it was hilarious. she's since developed new hilarious...

    Re: 6 month old not nursing anymore

    aww.. this was heartbreaking to read. any nursing mother can understand the loss of a bond you share. it's so great to hear you're trying hard to do something about it.
    my only advice to you is...
  17. Re: 9 month old won't take bottle or sippy!

    thanks for the ideas! i'll go get a straw cup from target!
    she used to take a bottle exclusively from 1 month through 3 mos. so she is 6 months out of practice on the bottle.
  18. 9 month old won't take bottle or sippy!

    ok, this is really not an urgent question at all, and as a matter of fact i feel badly posting it after reading some of the threads where baby won't take breast and ONLY takes bottle...

  19. Re: Anyone gotten rid of a UTI naturally?

    i've had UTI that lasts over a week before. you will know if it is turning into kidney if your back starts hurting, too. don't be afraid, it isn't a huge deal, but at that point you will likely need...

  21. Re: Can certain foods make my milk hold baby longer?

    i agree with possibly being a little oversensitive/projecting your fear onto LO. i hope that didn't sound mean!! i can understand what it is like to fear that LO isn't getting enough. i used to think...

    Re: frozen breastmilk tasting funny

    no, not rancid. just... like a bag, i guess!
    i haven't given any to her yet because she has the flu AND is teething right now, and working a bottle for the first time in 6 mos would throw her...

    Re: frozen breastmilk tasting funny

    my fresh milk tastes fine, i tasted after i pumped yesterday.
    it is just the frozen/thawed milk that tastes not good.
    hope baby takes it! does scalding it make it taste sweet again?
