    Re: Vitamins/Herbs while nursing?

    I hope I don't come across to negative, but I would not use that. I was recommmended herbs and supplements a lot and what you describe sounds similar to what was recommended to me.

  3. Re: What supplies do I need if I am going to breast feed?

  12. Re: Rotting Teeth/Breastfeeding over 2 years

    Totally agree with PPs.

    If you are still worried google for pictures / drawings / diagrams of where in fact your nipple is inside the child' mouth. Amazingly far inside.

  13. Re: Playgroup Woes ***for New Beginnings***
