  1. Re: 14 months and nursing like a newborn

    It sounds like from your post there are a lot of changes going on right now in your son's life- starting daycare, new teeth, and feeling sick. He needs his mama for comfort and probably some extra...
  2. Re: Using lecithin to prevent plugs?

    Hi there- I had a problem with milk blebs back when my LO was 4 months or so. My midwife suggested I try lecithin to help prevent them. Like a PP mentioned, it is available as a supplement in natural...
  3. Re: still supply issues when pumping at work...

    Just chiming in here to say that 12 oz pumping in a work day is a great output! Also, I don't think the nursing at night is necessarily related to how much she is eating during the day. I think that...

    Re: How does your baby "ask" to nurse?

    I have a 10 month old. Like your baby he is super distracted much of the time when nursing. I find we get the bulk of the nursing done when he is sleepy, either about to fall asleep or having just...
  5. Re: Nursing to sleep causing more night wakings?

    Funny, I never thought about the connection between babies that need to be walked around for hours to get to sleep and the nursing-to-sleep situation. I have one of those babies, too! Totally agree...
  6. Re: 6 month old with low weight gain- did I get bad advice?

    sonogirl- I do breast compressions, but usually after the first let down stops. I use a hands free bra only if I am at home or on the road for work, but that is something I haven't tried- using the...
  7. Re: 6 month old with low weight gain- did I get bad advice?

    Meg, you are right, now that I've thought about it I don't think my pedi is anti-breastfeeding at all. I am following his advice for now, and introducing solids, but slowly. I go back in a month for...
  8. Re: 6 month old with low weight gain- did I get bad advice?

    Hi everyone, thank you so much for the replies and support! I know I don't need to feel guilty, but it's just such an emotional subject, isn't it. And yes, we moms seem to do guilty well sometimes!...
  9. 6 month old with low weight gain- did I get bad advice?

    My six month old baby boy had his check up today and had what the pediatrician called "poor weight gain". I left feeling worried, alarmed, and kinda worried about my milk supply. Apparently he is now...
  10. Re: 3 mths...back at work...super stressed!

    Hi there,

    I'm pretty new at this and so don't have a lot of advice, but I just wanted to let you know that you're not alone. I'm going through the same thing and my pumping output sounds about...
  11. Milk blister... owwwww. What to do?

    Hello! I am in need of advice regarding milk blisters, or blebs, or whatever they are supposed to be called when you get a white bubble on your nipple that appears to be grown over with skin. I've...

    Re: Not a "good pumper". Need advice.

    still.here, I do co-sleep right now which is really helpful for my supply. He gets to nurse all night long whenever he wants and I hardly even wake up! So that should help us. That is great you were...

    Re: Not a "good pumper". Need advice.

    still.here and manitobamommy, thank you for the reassurance. I think my biggest fear about supplementing is that I will no longer be able to breastfeed. I picture it incrementally destroying my...

    Re: Not a "good pumper". Need advice.

    Thanks for the responses so far!

    My pump is indeed a secondhand pump, but I got it from my best friend who got it new a year ago and only used it a couple of times as she never ended up...

    Hello, I'm new here and came in search of advice. I'm a first time mom to a little baby boy, he's 4 months old now. I went back to work part time when he was 3 months (2 days a week) and now I'm...
