    Re: When did your cycle become regular again?

    pre-pregnancy I was clockwork... post-pregnancy, not so much. Got AF back at 8 mo pp, it's been 6 cycles now and last month was the first "normal" month, but this month is wonky again.

    sudden nipple soreness

    DS is 15 months and isn't teething, and has had all 8 front teeth and 4 molars for quite awhile, so I don't think it's latch adjustment issues. We went through a bad batch of thrush when DS was...

    LO has a cold and won't nurse

    My 14-month old is having a really hard time nursing with his very stuffy nose. It's been three days since he got a good nursing session in -- he sucks a few times, then needs a breath, before he...

    Poll: Re: When did your period come back?

    Re: Teeth

    He gets lazy with his tongue and retracts it, leaving his bottom teeth to graze. When he is tired, he rests his upper teeth on me as well.

    He also likes to nip at me occasionally or play around...

    Teeth

    DS had no noticable change to his latch when the bottom two came in. But with the top two (now four), it's gotten slowly worse and worse -- or maybe I should say the comfort is getting worse as he...

    Re: making baby food...

    Are you "canning" them properly, ie heat processing and vacuum sealing in sterile jars? If so, they'll keep for a year. BUT, if you're just filling jars, then 48 hours as others have said. If you...

    snacking nurser

    My almost 8 month old has become increasing interested in the world around him instead of focused on nursing. The only time I can get him settled enough to nurse more than 30 seconds is before...

    Re: Super Baby Food users?

    I have it. My pedi recommended it to me. So far the only problems I've had with it were that we didn't start solids until 6 months, so trying to get matched up with the diet suggestions was a...

    Re: milled flax seed

    The Super Baby Foods book says it's great to add to anything. 1/2 teaspoon milled/ground seeds daily. It warns, as with any seed, that it can be an allergen and recommends you don't introduce it...

    Re: Milk Supply going down.. mixed feelings

    The pump bladders aren't designed to last a year, so you might look at replacing those.

    low fat content

    My son is 12 weeks and has been acting like he's never satisfied for the last week. I know it's probably a growth spurt, given his age, but I also noticed the last few times that I've pumped that my...

    Re: Extremely sore Montgomery glands

    This particular soreness started about 3 days ago. And today I noticed that some of the most sore ones have turned white and are looking like little pimples. Maybe the glands are clogged?

    I...

    Re: Extremely sore Montgomery glands

    I generally use a cradle hold with an asymetrical latch (he gets most of my areola on one side of the nipple and just a bit of the other side... about an inch's width, I'd guess). It's of course the...

    Extremely sore Montgomery glands

    The Montgomery glands on the side of my breast which correspond to my son's bottom jaw when he's latched have become very sore to the touch. The surrounding skin seems fine, it's just the bumps of...

    Re: clamping down

    Thanks for the tip about soothing in between delatches -- I've just been delatching and going straight back on (or giving up and pumping when it was just too painful). My areolas are quite bruised...

    clamping down

    My 5-week-old son has started clamping down on my areola when he nurses. It's cutting off the blood flow (my nipple blanches) and I assume the milk flow as well, since he's gone from nursing for 20...

    Re: reduced flow in one breast only

    I think you were right that it was a growth spurt -- his second in as many weeks. I assumed since we'd already had one that I was in the clear until the 6th week. Now that he's nursing less often,...

    reduced flow in one breast only

    I noticed the other day that my 24-day old son was tugging hard and pulling back on my right breast after only 10 minutes of feeding. He repeated the behavior at the next few feedings and so I...
