  7. Re: 6 week old fussy at breast... gassy only at breast

    Fenugreek... tea vs. pill

  11. Breastfeeding and weight loss... what a joke!

    I'm breastfeeding for all the right reasons, but was happy to think that perhaps I'd get the added benefit of losing the pregnancy weight quickly. I was fit when I got pregnant and weighed 128...
