    Re: scared and need help

    Don't worry about not pooping in a day. A breastfed baby can go up to 7 days without pooping. At about 6 to 8 weeks they settle into a routine and quit pooping every time they eat. My ds has gone...

    Re: The secret question!

    I nursed my first 3 babies until they weaned themselves- the last 2 at 18 months, so I don't think she's thinking I want him weaned by 12 months. He's doing slightly better with self-feeding- so I...

    Re: pumping and nursing

    To get 2 ounces immediately after nursing is pretty good. And actually that may be all your baby will need. At 11 weeks your baby probably doesn't take more than 2 to 4 ounces per feeding anyway-...

    Re: 3.5 month old totally fussy at breast

    Is he fussy- crying, etc- or just wanting more to pay attention to what's going on.

    Sometimes babies with reflux will be fussy at the breast- but if you're not seeing large and/or frequent large...

    Re: Can a cold affect supply

    Any antihistamine can decrease your supply- so things like benadryl (diphenhydramine), sudafed, claritin, allegra, zyrtec.

    Re: manual vs. electric pumps

    I worked full time during my first 3 kids and had a double electric pump for all of them. With my first I rented a hospital grade Medela pump, which was wonderful. With my first daughter I had a...

    Re: Ger

    My son also has GERD. We started on Zantac at 5 weeks of age then had to add Reglan a few weeks later. He came off the Reglan when he was 6 months old and we switched to Prevacid. The Zantac...

    Re: Purchasing a Mini Freezer For Breast Milk?

    I don't know anything about mini-freezers, but I think the guidelines are that breastmilk can be stored for 6 months or longer if the freezer goes to 0 fahrenheit or less.

    I know I bought a small...

    The secret question!

    Okay- here's the reason I'm asking. First I posed the question "what does your 9 month old eat?" because I really wanted to see what people are doing IRL. I figured I'd get more info by asking that...

    Re: making rice cereal at home

    I've made what little cereal my ds has eaten. I did find that a blender made a much finer grind than my food processor- so I'd recommend that.

    The recipe I had came from here-...

    Re: Pumping frequency + going out

    Skipping one pumping session once every 3 weeks or so probably won't affect your supply- but you will likely be miserable. And I definately agree with pp about risk of plugged ducts, etc. And...
  12. Re: Travel tips for pumping - how to deal with milk - ship it home?

    How I feel for you.

    I do know that as of about a month ago you could carry on a plane with you 3 containers holding 3 ounces each of breast milk- but they had to be a certain baggie type thing. ...

    Re: Engorged despite feeding

    My ds did the same thing and what the lc suggested was to do "switch" nursing. The first thing you may want to do is to pump for just a minute or two before feeding your baby- this will help relieve...

    Re: HELP...thinking about quiting

    Have you tried some of the other things to increase supply as well- such as fenugreek, blessed thistle, oatmeal, and brewer's yeast? Also- did your LC talk to you about using a supplemental nursing...
  15. Re: Putting Breastmilk in Freezer with other food

    I've stored milk for four babies and have never noticed them picking up odors from the freezer. And I've used both freezer bottles and the bags. For the bags I'll freeze them and them put a month...

    Re: New Job

    I know exactly what you mean. My MIL wasn't very supportive of my bf attempt with my first either until he gained 2 pounds in the 2 weeks after he was born. Then from that point on she was...

    Re: In need of some information!

    Wow! You are working so hard to do this. If I could reach through and give you a great big :hug I would.

    I would give the fenugreek and the blessed thistle a try along with the domperidone. ...

    Re: Still having terrible b/f pain!

    A lot of times a burning sensation can be associated with thrush. You may want to find a local LLL leader to help determine if that's what the problem is.

    Congrats on your new baby!

    Calling moms of 9 month olds

    What is your 9 month old eating? And how much? How often do you feed a "meal" of solids?

    I have a reason for asking- but would rather see the answers first!

  21. Re: 3.5 mos old boy, approx 16-17 lbs, how much?

    I wouldn't worry so much about how much he's actually taking in as how he acts. Does he have enough wet/ poop diapers? Does he seem hungry more and more often- as if he isn't getting enough? Does...

    I get plugged ducts pretty often- always in the same place too. I'm usually sore for a while after they resolve. I just keep putting heat and massage while nursing until I don't notice any soreness...

    Before my first child I barely wore a size 32 A. And I really mean barely. During pregnancy I filled a size A cup and increased to a 36. After he weaned I really didn't change. With my next two I...
