  1. Re: Pregnant again- advice on what to do to avoid supply problems before they happen.

    I'm putting in a request at my library for this book. Thanks!
  2. Re: Pregnant again- advice on what to do to avoid supply problems before they happen.

    Ha! I'll take that congrats! Thank you!
  3. Re: Pregnant again- advice on what to do to avoid supply problems before they happen.

    I did get TWAoB at the library but it didn't address the actual problem of actually not producing enough despite everything. I think that there is often just an assumption among those who are...
  4. Re: Pregnant again- advice on what to do to avoid supply problems before they happen.

    Unfortunately, my "local" LLL meetings are over an hour away.

    Re: drinking out of a cup

    That's what it sounds like to me. I mean, if he's not freaking out when he tries to swallow and he's not freaking out when he eats then that makes sense. My DS has a really cool new game where he...
  6. Re: Pregnant again- advice on what to do to avoid supply problems before they happen.

    Thanks for the replies (and, phew- I get to quit the nipple stuff!)!

    DS had an uneventful, easy, vaginal birth. I do think my stress level after his birth was high- but not until I came home (so...
  7. Re: If it hasn't increased by now will it?

    Has anyone suggested using a supplemental nursing system (SNS)?

  8. Pregnant again- advice on what to do to avoid supply problems before they happen...

    I ran a search but the keywords bring up too many threads that aren't what I'm looking for.

    I'm pregnant again. I'm only just barely in my second trimester but I'm wondering if there's anything I...

    Re: Sns?

    runningmom mentioned medical tape and that definitely helps keep the tube in place. I don't know how the syringe one works either, though. If she's having that hard of a time, I really, really doubt...

    Re: Sns?

    I had no problem using it by myself.

    How many ounces does hers hold? The starter sns holds 2.5 ounces (according to the marks- you could get more in there but I never used more than 1.5-2 ounces)....
  11. Re: Desperatly seeking donated breast milk

    Speaking out of probably ignorance here... I was looking stuff up about milk/milk banks a few weeks ago... can't you pass a lot of diseases to your baby by using "bad" milk- like if someone has HIV...

    Re: Sns?

    Another lady on here was using the one with the syringe and that sounded like a real pain. I used a Medela one for like 7 weeks and am now able to breastfeed "hands free"- lol. I found a place you...

    As far as the 3 ounces goes...

    I had some supply issues and went to the LC Fri, Weds, and Fri- one week period. 1st Friday lo was 9 lbs 11 oz before session. Weds, he had a bad day and didn't...
  14. Re: Baby looking at you while feeding??

    My lo is 2 months and doesn't look at me while feeding. He does look at me now when he's on the changing table or when he's in the crib (before his really cool Tiny Love battery operated mobile...

    Re: I think I messed up... again!

    I probably would have given up on it, too. Before I got the SNS I was nursing, feeding a bottle, then pumping, then washing everything... it was exhausting. With the SNS, I could skip the bottle...

    Re: I think I messed up... again!

    Google Search

    The one I used is on the list (scroll down a bit) for $14.95. It's the "starter sns." The info says it's intended for just 24 hours of use but, like I said, I used it for like 7...

    Re: I think I messed up... again!

    Holy cow- what a pain (having to fill it 3 times just to get an ounce!). Maybe that's why your LC was so against it. Mine held mor than 2.5 ounces- you could probably put 3 in there but the markings...

    There are obviously women here who have way more experience with (and without) breastfeeding that either you or I, but I wanted to let you know that I totally feel your pain.

    Re: I think I messed up... again!

    Lest I allow myself to sound like an authority on SNS or breast feeding... my previous post is based on my observations and experiences using the thing for 7 weeks. I am by no means an expert. Just...

    Re: I think I messed up... again!

    My sns had only 1 tube- but it might be different- there's more than one on the medela website.

    If you have it hooked up right, there is no flow. Your lo has to suck formula through the tube the...
  21. Re: Need confidence booster with single side feedings

    I'm no expert, but I don't think there's any such thing as him getting too much. He'll stop when he's done.

    I've only been exclusively breastfeeding for a couple of weeks (minus my supplementing...

    Re: I think I messed up... again!

    I don't see why it can't be used with the nipple shield- you can even insert it AFTER your lo latches on by putting it in the corner of her mouth, though I had a really hard time doing it that way- I...
  24. Re: Need help with Cross Cradle Position

    I don't support mine and I, too, am very small. 34A to start- I'm a 34C right now (could have bought a 36B which I believe is the same cup size as a 34C but I WANTED to be a C!).

    I bought a My...

    Re: I think I messed up... again!

    Uhhhhh... I used an SNS for about 7 weeks and I'm now able to exclusively BF. It's not hard to use at all. Maybe there are different kinds, but I just clipped it on, slipped the tube under my nursing...
