  1. Re: hardly getting anything when i pump

    Hi there! I know exactly what you're going through-with both DDs I went back to work part time and had/have to pump once during my shift. My body seems to not like the pump, so each time I pump, I...
  2. Re: Big Boobs and not sure which pump

    Hi! I'm in the same boat as you-so big that I have to hold my breast in place for baby while she nurses or it falls out of her mouth; needless to say, pumping can be challenging as well.

    Re: sleep issues

    Hi there! My DD also was a horrible back sleeper. I think we finally gave in and started letting her sleep on her tummy around 7 weeks.
    It's a hard decision, given all of the information about...
  7. Re: different fullness in breasts

    Hi! I just weaned my 14 month old DD, and I can tell you that the entire time I breastfed, my right breast did about 60-70% of the work! It was always fuller and when I pumped I got about double...

    Re: Help keeping baby awake

    Oh boy, like PP, I also remember those days! My DD was exactly the same way - nursed for 1 to 2 minutes, then off to dreamland!
    We also tried all of the things you mentioned - undressing her,...
  9. Re: 9 month old...want to start weaning. Need help!

  12. Re: Rejecting solids - teething??

    Thanks! She is actually doing better today, so we're not as worried.
    I am going to trust my gut instinct, which is it's all teething related.
    I just get myself a little stressed with the what if's...

    On average, she nurses 7 times a day and eats solids 2-3 times a day.

    When my daughter was born it was also via emergency c-section and my milk didn't come in until 9 days later.

    Re: Please help

    I don't really have an answer for you, but I think my friend was also told that anti-depressants go into the milk, so not to take them if breastfeeding or not to breastfeed if taking them.
