    More EBM than I can use

    My baby was a preemie, and at first we had a very difficult time with BFing. Long story short, I was pumping all of the time to both feed my DD, and keep my supply up. Fast forward to the present,...
  3. Re: Trying to Use Nipple Shield Extreme Pain

    My baby was born 5½ weeks early, and I used a nipple shield until she reached her corrected gestational age of 42 weeks. At that point I got her started with the nipple shield, and once she was well...

    Dreamfeeding

    I had never heard of the term "dreamfeeding" until I saw it on this forum. Even then I didn't pay much attention because it didn't apply to me. Until now. I assume that it means nursing while...

    Re: Feeding expressed milk only

    Pumping can be a lot of work. For me the hardest part was the constantly (and I mean CONSTANTLY) washing and sterilizing the pumping supplies. If you can get through this difficult stage, it...

    Re: Constipation

    Cereal in the morning, either rice or oatmeal. I'm using less rice because I was told that rice can contribute to constipation. Fruit at lunch time (often prunes), and cereal and veggies together...

    Re: Bleaching teeth and nursing?

    Re: Discreet Nursing

    What frustrates me is that I wasn't embarrassed to nurse anywhere, but now I kind of am uncomfortable nursing in front of my husband's family since my MIL said that. I don't want to have to eat...
