    Re: After delivery...

    Congratulations!

    Yes, I recommend the SNS system. Someone indicated that they cost $50 but I got mine in the hospital and it was covered by insurance. Best thing to do is not to supplement at all...

    Re: MM and Fenugreek

    You can buy Mother's Milk at Whole Foods and Peoples pharmacy. As far as the fenugreek goes, my experience was that I needed a lot more than that. They say that once you start smelling like pancakes,...

    Re: Prescription medications

    If he's nursing for 5 minutes before coming off fussy, it could be that he's too impatient with the hindmilk. Have you tried switching to the other side and back again until he empties both breasts?...

    Re: smelling like maple syrup

    I took it for several months with no real increase in my supply and no maple syrup smell. Then someone on these forums suggested taking more and I slowly increased until taking 6 of them 3 times per...
  6. Re: Help! My Baby Is One Month Old - Still less than 1 ounce total each time I pump!

    Oh, yes... I forgot to mention the cosleeping. Thanks for reminding me, JDunn. I cosleep with my baby and nurse him all night long, any time he asks for it (which usually works out to be about 4...

    It all sounds so familiar to me as I was in your shoes several months back. Just know that you are a wonderful momma. I know this because you are struggling to do anything and everything you can to...

    Re: oatmeal?

    Oh yeah, it helps my supply like crazy... when I was weighing before and after each feeding, it made about a 2 oz difference per day. That's a lot when you have low supply and every mL counts. I eat...

    Re: nipple strike??

    Just wanted to caution against using honey with your baby. You're never supposed to give a child under 12 months honey due to infant botulism.

    Re: Scab

    Hmm... haven't had this happen to me but just a thought... if you're not nursing on the scabby side, why not get some really thick topical ointment and try to heal the heck out of it? I'm thinking...

    Re: challanges with bottle

    We love the BreastFlow by FirstYears too... makes them really suck to get the milk instead of just dripping down their throats. My 5 month old goes back and forth between the breast and the...

    Re: nipple strike??

    I've had my 5 month old refuse the breast from time to time and it usually boils down to him not liking the position I've put him in. Maybe you could try several different positions. My LO went...

    Re: Reglan

    I took Reglan for 2 months (longer than the recommended time to take it). I definitely saw the depression side effect and it was pretty bad but I weighed that against being able to nurse my baby and...
  14. Re: So, I'm not sure what's going on ... (sorry, long!)

    Your baby is just a few weeks older than mine and most of this sounds like teething to me. We've experienced some of the very same "symptoms" you describe. What's getting me through? Trying every...

    I've been on Dom for 3 months now. I ran out once before I could get my shipment in and within 4 days, I saw my supply dip quite significantly. (I know this because I was using a professional grade...

    Yes, hopefully this'll be exactly what you need to boost your supply. It worked like a champ for me. Just a reminder though that many women have found that going off the Dom after having taken it for...

    Re: domperidone question

    You don't have to have a prescription to order it from New Zealand/Australia/Canada. They ship it as herbal remedy and it's legal...goes through customs and all that jazz.

    Re: Pain

    Sharp pains in the breast is a sure sign of thrush for me, at least. I have had full on thrush and my baby didn't show any signs of it. I would recommend seeing your doctor or LC just to rule it out....
  19. Re: What exactly is "exclusive" breastfeeding?

    Oh yeah, at Target and Walmart, when I walk up with my son, they almost always ask, "Ya need to feed him?" I think they let moms use their fitting rooms for this regularly. My Walmart even pulls a...
  20. Re: What exactly is "exclusive" breastfeeding?

    My sister has gi-normous boobs too and is very uncomfortable nursing in public. Her baby is 6 months old now and they've gotten better at it. As the baby gets older and is physically able to do other...

    I took Reglan for 2 months after my son was born. As I said before, I was pumping 10-12 times per day after each feeding and then some. It did have some positive effect on my supply but nothing to...

    Re: any ideas??

    The dom should increase your prolactin levels. How long have you been taking it? It took quite a bit before I noticed any changes. Also Reglan will usually help, if your doc will prescribe. One note...
