  1. Re: Advice needed - Saggy breasts and breastfeeding

    not getting fullness and pressure is normal as your supply regulates; it's not a sign of reduced milk production.

    is the wrestling a new thing? any other pattern to it (time of day, etc)?
  2. Re: Diminishing Pumping Output - 9 month old

    there is a classic "pump slump" around 8-10 months, sounds like you're hitting it. doing a super pump weekend can help, where you pump after every nursing for the whole weekend. it's a pain in the...

    the thing that stimulates more milk production is more demand. all the tea and herbs in the world won't help if you're not nursing or pumping enough - ie removing milk from the body...

    Re: She prefers my right breast

    congrats!

    sometimes it's about positioning. try keeping baby in the same position you use for the right, but just sliding her over (instead of flipping her to do mirror image) - so if she's in...

    Re: reassuance on work/pump/feeding

  11. Re: Co-sleepers- what do you do in the evening?

    don't borrow trouble - i'm pretty skeptical of 'getting baby used to' things in advance. i think when they're with another caregiver, they work things out on their own anyway.
