    Re: breastmilk treating pink eye?

    I've heard also that breastmilk applied to a cut or scrape will help heal it.
    that's some potent stuff!
  4. Re: Please help. Turning 1 tomorrow and not that interested in solids

    We are having the same problem. I've found that my lo doesn't care for "baby food" but would willingly taste what we were eating. She won't eat her rice cereal with BM but would take some Cocoa...

    Re: Help !!

    One more piece of advice. While you are muddling through learning breastfeeding, buy a good book about it and read while the baby is nursing. By now I know my book by heart and it's come in handy...

    Re: Needs to suck, but doesn't want to eat

    Hang in there! I wonder if your let down is so strong that it frustrates your baby? Have you tried expressing some milk first, so she's not overwhelmed and can handle the flow?

    Re: Down the road...

    I actually miss some of those longer nursing sessions. Now-a-days it's 5 minutes tops. I barely get comfortable and she's done. The time inbetween nursings varies from 1 hour to 4. At least I can...

    Will she ever eat solid food?

    My lo is now 9 m/o and only wants to BF. She turns her head away or pushes away any kind of baby food or rice cereal. If I give her Cheerios or a bit of a breadstick she will gnaw on it and maybe...

    Re: Medela Pump

    From my understand the only hospital grade pumps are the ones at the hospital ( like the Lactina). If I remember correctly they cost up near $1,000. If you need one of that caliber you could rent...

    Re: Latching on Problems...

    Yes! It does get better , hang in there. At least after the initial frustration your lo will latch on and nurse. It's a nursing partnership, you are each still learning about one another.

    Re: Are there any more nursing older toddlers?

    Are you doing the "don't offer don't refuse" thing?
    It's such a shame that we are made to feel ashamed and weird for breastfeeding. How backwards people think sometimes!
  13. Re: Major positioning issues! Please help!

    My dtr. is 7 months old and we went through a spell where she only wanted to nurse laying down. Wait a little while, this will pass and there will be some other baffling thing your lo will do :lol.

    Re: Ds doesn`t stop vomiting

    I just read somewhere that babies who are vomiting and are willing to nurse should, because there is an ingredient in breastmilk that will soothe their stomach.

    Re: Co-sleeping mommies..question for you!

    A sleep bra is nice but not much support for you. I find that if I go topless that baby likes to "play" with the other boob, which I don't want to encourage. Usually I wear a loose non-nursing tank...
  20. Re: Not exactly a vent, just a realization

    Well you know what they say, "Don't offer, don't refuse". Seems like a sound principle, I'm not there yet though, so can't offer any experience. I do think that weaning should not be a tramatic...
