  3. Re: More Milk Plus Special Blend Tincture?

    Ha ha! I don't know if it was bravery or stupidity but I haven't done it again!:lol Thanks for the grape juice tip...it makes it tolerable at least!
  4. Re: Domperidone, pumps, and what to do...

    :hug to you! Not much advice on the pump other than maybe check on ebay or with your hospital. But as far as her not liking your milk anymore, I doubt that would be a problem. My DD only gets BM...

    Re: I REALLY need help!!!!

    Thanks! It's not a natural thing--lol! But I figure it will do me more good to be optomistic than it would to sit and worry every time I only squeezed out .5 ml, ya know?

    And that's...

    Re: How do I relax?

    :hugMama, you're doing fine. Don't let the ped scare you. Mine wasn't gaining much weight at first either, though I didn't understand it b/c she looked like a little butterball. Reflux meds took...

    Re: I REALLY need help!!!!

    I REALLY need help!!!!

    Ok, I'm so frustrated with going it alone! In the beginning there was OALD/OS. Then there was reflux. Then there was nursing strike. Then there was so few wet diapers that I felt I must give formula...
  15. Re: does oatmeal really help?

    :lol:lol:lol I'd ask if you're serious but I had a similar experience. I find when I allow myself one or two Dove dark chocolates a day I have better output. Maybe there's something to it and...
  16. Re: Need some needed advice. FRUSTRATED!!

    I had to return to work when my 2nd daughter was 5 weeks old, much to my dismay. Luckily we were able to arrange our finances that I was able to quit by the time she was 5 mos. However, during that...
