    Re: Pumping Hurts

    But did you have the same issue with a different pump? Hospital grade, new pump? I thought you did?

  3. Re: Does BFing ever get easier & enjoyable?

    I think worrying is normal, especially if there were issues with an older child (or previously with the same child) and also if one baby has very different behavior than older sibling(s). I think it...
  4. Re: Does BFing ever get easier & enjoyable?

    Re: dental surgery while nursing

    Mothers are routinely told to not nurse for some period of time after general anesthesia. But this is not based on facts. The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding says no need to stop nursing due to general...
  8. Re: 10 day old baby and inadequate milk supply

    I do not know of a way to increase storage capacity. But there is no need fort a breastfed baby to get more and more milk as they get older. At about 4 to 6 weeks, an infants typical intake gets to...
  9. Re: baby with Gluten sensitivity in breastmilk

    Hi, I did not have this issue personally but one of my co-Leaders did. However, it was not discovered until her child was a toddler, and the major symptom was very unusual sleep disturbance.

  11. Re: Help! Not sure if I should pump or not

    2) A board certified lactation consultant cannot diagnose tongue or lip...
  14. Re: giving tray of food vs one bite at a time

    on the one hand I think dcp should do as parents ask whenever possible, whether they agree or not. on the other, this may simply not be possible in practice depending on age and number of other...
  15. Re: Distracted nurser not gaining enough weight

    I agree with mommal, if you offer more or do techniques for reducing distractions during the day, will baby nurse longer or more often? His night feeding sounds normal, perhaps he prefers nursing in...
  16. Re: Need help with supply and twins! Scared to supplement

    Hi. So, I am not sure there even is a problem, because your babies were always a little small (although, certainly not bad at all for twins born a couple weeks 'early.') I mean, being in the 10% (or...

    Re: When to use Pacifiers

    So you mean when you are not there? Yes that should be fine. Pacifiers are basically breast substitutes, so it makes sense to use them when the breast is not available!
