    Your child is much more efficient at the breast than a pump, so generally your child is getting more milk than what you can pump in a normal session. This varies from mother/child to mother/child...
  3. Re: Birth Control Method - Mirena - anyone have this or using it?

    Re: Many Days have Passed...

    The best way to boost supply is to put baby to the breast. I don't really have any other advice for you, DD was a very passionate nurser from day 1 and my supply has always been fine, so I don't...

    Re: Green Poop

    I had the same problem with my DD. Tickling, undressing, any form of stimulation just would not wake her up. Turned out she was just bored with my flow slowing down after the initial let down. ...

    Few concerns...

    I have 2 minor issues.

    1.) My nipples are starting to slightly burn after feedings and are occasionally tender while nursing. I'd call it more of a burning discomfort than a burning pain. I...

  20. Re: How long does your baby sleep at night

    My DD is 5 weeks old and sleeps from 11:30pm until about 4:30 or 5am. I was wondering if this was too long for her to sleep considering she is so young, but even when she wakes at 5am she doesn't...
