    Re: Nursing While Pregnant

    Your body will prepare for the baby growing inside you just as it would if you were not nursing. So yes, you will have colostrum in your breasts, actually several weeks before you deliver, as is...
  2. Re: My son pulls and claws and it hurts!

    HI and welcome and congratulations on your new baby.

    Well, this should just not be, no matter how much your baby nurses. Has nursing always hurt or is this new? How is baby's weight gain? Can...
  3. Re: Acting like he doesnt want to breastfeed anymore

    Re: Breastfeeding problems

    Hi and welcome. Your wife is lucky to have a supportive husband.

    Re: Is my baby not eating enough?

    Hi and welcome.

    Re: Off to a bad start.

    no contact info on the Group website? Not even e-mail? Or no Group website? That's too bad.

    . Well I would not say "normal" so much as "common." It is "normal" for nursing to be comfortable for...

  11. Re: 5 month old very gassy hard time nursing

    Hi, It is always hard to see your baby uncomfortable. I am a little confused what the primary issue is, or if there are two separate issues? Reflux, and gas? Also, was the tongue tie ever treated and...

    Re: Cant pump at work

    Yes it would help to know why you cannot pump. But if you really can not, here are some ideas for keeping milk production in better shape:

    Hand express, at least 2 to 3 times an 8 hour work day,...
  14. Re: It feels like my boobs are full of concrete

    Have you been taking any type of a galactagogue, maybe without realizing it? Unfortunately sometimes these are marketed as something all nursing moms should take, when in fact what they are meant for...

    Re: HELP! Clogged duct or mastitis

    Thrush is unlikely to make you feel ill all over. So this sounds like a mild or perhaps the opening stages of mastitis. Of course you could have thrush as well, are you particularly prone to yeast? ...

  17. Re: WHAT in the world is going on with my supply??? Help!!

    Possible scenario for that one day- The Goats Rue worked TOO well, breasts got full, body said whoa, too much, and supply dropped down again?

  18. Re: Baby won't take bottle! Refusing to eat 8 hours!

    It would help to know exactly what is...
