  1. Re: Pregnant and milk just stopped...help!

    Hi and :welcome

    Around the five month mark was also when my milk dried up. When your milk supply diminishes during pregnancy, it's usually hormonally related and there's no real way for you to...
  2. Re: anyone else out there exclusively pumping?

    I EP'd for my DD for 15 months (until my milk dried up due to pregnancy). So, I know how trying it can be!! If you ever need any moral support, don't hesitate to PM me!

    Re: Length of pump time

    I never experienced this issue consecutively or to this degree but I did find that if I was stressed or not thinking of LO when pumping that it would take forever to get the milk going. I found that...

    Re: Does OALD ever get better???

    I started out only feeding from the same breast for two hours at a time before switching. Now I'm up to 3.5-4 hours. I'm having some trouble with that though because DS eats like mad!! He is...

    Does OALD ever get better???

    And if it does, how long does it take?? I've been block feeding for about two weeks now and so far I've not seen any results. DS is still choking/gagging every time I have a letdown unless I'm...

    Re: Need help decoding symptoms

    Well, I finally heard back from my OB's office. They called in some antibiotics for me. I wasn't going to start them until tomorrow but the breast pain was getting worse and the fever shot up to...

    Re: Need help decoding symptoms

    Thanks ladies! I still haven't gotten a return call from my OB's office. I think I may give them a call back soon. Still in pain and still running a fever of 100 even with the Tylenol. :(

    Re: Need help decoding symptoms

    Anyone know if it is mastitis if I HAVE to treat with antibiotics? I almost always get a yeast infection when I take antibiotics and don't want to risk getting thrush.

    I just called my OB and...

    Need help decoding symptoms

    Well, you'd think that I'd know my stuff since this is my second round of breastfeeding. :rolleyes: Anyway, I need some assistance. I have had a really tender left breast for the past couple of...

    Re: Do I HAVE to pump?

    I second what the PP said! Don't pump unless you need/want to. But, having a hand pump around can help if you have an emergency and need it!

    Btw, :welcome

    Re: Dried fruit

    I just tried raisins with DD last week (she'll be 20 months on the 20th) mostly because the raisins that I remember as a kid were chewy. But, the ones I bought almost dissolved in my mouth so I felt...

    Re: Trying to help a friend (long)

    Aside from recommending she join this site, could you maybe offer to attend an LLL meeting with her and "help" her to talk about the issues she's having? Maybe that would help her to realize she's...
  15. Re: Please help pumping and bleeding nipple

    First of all, it is my understanding that if there is a little blood in the milk that it is perfectly okay to go ahead and give to your LO. I had to do this once as well and DD had no ill effects...

    I had these a couple of times when I was still pumping exclusively for DD. I usually found that if I adjusted the suction down a bit on the pump that they went away on their own. Are they painful...

    Re: More honey

    Yep, you're perfectly fine to consume honey when you're nursing. The reason that they say not to give honey (or even corn syrup) to your LO is because it contains the toxic spores that cause can...

    Re: HELP! My EBM won't freeze

    That is kind of strange! :scratch Like the PP said, I wonder if maybe her freezer is being opened a lot during the day so it just never gets to a temp to freeze your EBM. I wonder if other things...

    Re: Amount to feed little one?

    The information listed on Kellymom is a good base to start with. I always found that my DD needed a little more milk to satisfy her, sometimes a lot more during growth spurts. Just remember that...

    Re: pumping made easy

    I agree with the PP. I always had a hard time yielding the same amounts when I was away from DD/home. I found that just focusing on a memory of her little face helped achieve letdown.
  21. Re: Help, Pain and only pumping b/c I;m on meds

    I can chime in about the Fexofenadine. I take it fairly regularly and saw no ill effects in DD when she was still getting breast milk. My OB told me that while it does pass through into the milk,...

    I think we've all had those moments where we stand there in disbelief while our milk streams out over the counter. When DD was about four months old, I had pumped and was...

    Happy to help!

    Did you ever exclusively nurse your child? Yes.

    For how long? For about five months then gradually introduced bottles of pumped milk and slowly transitioned to bottle...
