    Hi. DD just turned 1 and I am pumping for her 2 x's a day and nursing her at night (or any other rare occasional snack). I will nurse her at night before bed and then pump. I lean on my side and...
  3. Re: Do I have to breastfeed or can I pump exclusively

    I wanted to add that while I agree that it is not all just about the BM, it is about wanting to lovingly nurture your baby. Yes, when I couldn't breastfeed before, I was disappointed. But, when I...
  4. Re: Do I have to breastfeed or can I pump exclusively

    Hi! I have pumped exclusively for 9 months with two of mine. With each, I had enough storage at nine months to quit pumping and feed them until they reached 12 months.

    How much milk does she need?

    DD is just about 7 months old and has become incredibly distracted while at the breast. She has always taken an hour to eat but since the new struggle of getting everyone to stay quiet (which is SO...
  10. Re: Need to vent - and how often do you feed a 2 month old baby?

    (((HUGS))))

    You are doing exactly what your baby needs!! Did your mom breastfeed? The reason I ask is because my mom didn't and she is always asking "So, how long are you going to do 'that'?" ...

    What is listed as safe for colds?

    I know that sudafed can decrease your milk supply. I have a cold and just have tons of pressure in my head/sinuses. Is there a list of safe meds I can take? Baby has the cold, too. :(

    Re: She doesn't suck

    One side over the other??

    How easy is it to feed from just one side all of the time? I mean, only use the same breast for each feeding. DD has always preferred my right side. With everything we are going through (block...

    Will block feeding lower supply too much?

    DD hasn't had any green poops (no mucous or blood either :) ) since I stretched out my block feeding to 6 hours per side. I posted earlier about her pulling off in what seems like frustration that...
