    Re: How do you find time to pump?

    I have stuggled for 6 months with my milk supply, and I know that my only hope of increasing it is pumping. At 2 weeks, I purchased the Medela Freestyle and found its "handsfree" function to be...

    Can I drink fenugreek powder?

    I bought some fenugreek capsules (610mg), but they are too big for me to swallow. Can I dissolve the powder in water (or any other liquid) and drink it?

    Also, once it has increased your supply do...
  6. Re: Trying to Exclusively Breastfeed. Is it possible?

    I have been looking into bottle alternatives to help me wean my baby girl off these supplements.
    Does anyone have experience with cup-feeding, the Medela SNS or the Lact-Aid system?
  7. Re: Trying to Exclusively Breastfeed. Is it possible?

    @bebelolo: I will have to start pumping more for sure. There are so many things to do in a day that it's not easy to get more than a few pumps in, but I know I need double or triple that. I started...
  8. Re: Trying to Exclusively Breastfeed. Is it possible?

    She loves to nurse and definitely does not refuse the breast, so I guess you could say she nurses actively. Latching is always a problem for her, but I just have to be patient and she will eventually...
  9. Re: Trying to Exclusively Breastfeed. Is it possible?

    I am absolutely planning to change doctors - my experience with this medical group has been awful.

  14. Re: Trying to Exclusively Breastfeed. Is it possible?

    @andrea: My nipples were cracked and bleeding for the first week and a half, but they have since healed up and are fine now.

    @intine: I don't mind answering at all. The doctors think that my...
  15. Re: Trying to Exclusively Breastfeed. Is it possible?

    @mommyto6: She's on Enfamil Newborn Premium, which I believe is 20 cals. What kind is 24 cals? I have been trying to decrease the bottles, and a higher calorie mix might help.
  16. Re: Trying to Exclusively Breastfeed. Is it possible?

    @andrea: I do pump still, but I confess in the last week I have decreased pumping to once a day or sometimes even less because I was increasing the amount of time she spent nursing. The pump I use is...
