    Re: Is this normal?

    My son started cutting some new teeth in the last two weeks and he's doing the same thing. It's to the point that my supply has gone up again. He has cut back on eating solids and I figure it must be...

    Re: Not gaining weight

    I agree with Logan's mom, if he's developing well and hitting his milestones I wouldn't worry yourself too much!

    My son has been in the 10th percentile since 6 months, he was 6lbs 9ozs at birth,...

    Re: Night Nursing at 13 months - what's normal?

    I'm in the same situation and I believe the frequent nursing is very normal. DS has been night nursing more frequent lately, sometimes 3-4X's. I've been giving him more solids lately, so he's wanted...

    Re: Re-use horns?

    I've been doing the same for the last 6 months. After I pump I just stick them in the fridge for the next time I need. Although, I sterlize them once a day.

    Re: beer, MIL driving me nuts

    Rebecca,

    That really makes sense to me. From my own experience, I've noticed that as long as I have a good letdown during my pumping session, then I've had a "good" pumping session.

    Eben and I have had rolled oats for breakfast just about everyday. Although I add banana to sweeten it.

    Re: I am giving up!

    Hi Carter's Mommy. You sound really stressed out and I'm sorry for that. I'm wondering if the stress maybe contributing to not having a letdown. I've noticed that I have difficulty having a letdown...

    Re: Donating Breastmilk

    Thanks for posting. This is really neat. I've always heard of donating milk but wasn't sure how to do it. DS and I are coming up on the one year mark and I'm sure I'll have some extra milk from there...

    Re: Gatorade -- Does it actually work?

    HI,

    I 've never heard of Gatorade increasing milk supply. Oatmeal and popcorn worked for me.
    I'd stay away from anything that has high fructose corn syrup in it. High fructose corn syrup is...

    Re: Pumping to freeze

    I also wanted to mention that I was never able to pump more than 3 1/2 oz before DS nursed (off both sides) and that's why I was trying to increase my milk supply. You may not need to increase your...

    Hi. I just went back to work myself and I wondered the same thing a few weeks before. I pumped in the morning and the evening after DS nursed, I figured that way he'd get his fill and then I could...

    Re: Mixing milk

    I believe the only type of mixing you can't do is just pumped BM with chilled BM, but you can mix as long as they're at the same temp!

    I've read that nursing during take off and landing can help with the ear discomfort that elavation causes. Also, check with the airline's rules and regs. Some airlines require you take...

    Re: massive weight loss from breastfeeding?

    Hi!
    I agree with everyone else, it's not uncommon to lose weight while BFing. BFing burns a lot calories, some even compare it with a daily 1/2 hr jog.
