    Re: Oversupply problem. Which pacifier?

    I honestly didn't read the other posts, so this could have been said already but consider using silicone instead of latex (due to allergy concerns)...look for a paci that is all one piece (the more...

    Re: Should I stop her?

    my LO is 8 weeks and had a huge growth spurt...she nursed constantly...it was hard but it made me slow down. Have you tried nursing in a sidelying position? It allows her to nurse for as long as...

    Re: not making enough milk ?!!!

    sounds like you're doing a great job on staying on top of things. The green poop might be an indication of a fore/hind milk imbalance...My LO tends to have green poop when she only sucks for a short...

    Empty breasts?

    My LO is almost 8 weeks old, she's latching well and my flow hasn't changed (lots of milk, very fast). Lately she's been eating every hour and 1/2 to 2 hours (more often then normal)...I expect that...

    Re: 2 weeks into it- having issues

    sometimes my LO does this...for us it's an instant gratification thing...she gets nipple into her mouth and wants milk, like, now! What I've been doing is hand expresseing a small amount of milk...
  7. Re: Help with Selfishness and BF - Need Encouragement!

    I know it's hard but believe me it does get easier!! It's hard not to resent your LO when you're tired and cranky, and it's hard to get used to having a thing attached to your boob all the time. As...

    Re: How long until empty?

    It'm my understanding that most of the milk your LO is getting is actually made during that feeding session. Empty doesn't really happen.

    Re: Desperate for help

    We didn't have latch problems but I know my LO just wants to suck sometimes. At the end of a feed she will pull off and re-latch several times, getting more and more frustrated each time. After a...

    Re: new baby has a cold! help?

    my LO had a cold at 5 days...one of my LLL leaders actually suggested squirting some milk up her nose. The milk acts the same way saline does but I found it worked much better. I also didn't use a...

    Re: Green Poops

    Every once in awhile Ari gets like this too. I tend to express or pump a little milk before I feed her so she gets more hind milk and the next poop is fine. I also only feed her on one breast per...

    Re: AHHHRRGHHH (aka- hit a wall today)

    Hey I can't help with all of it but instead of pumping all the time why not take a break once in awhile? I don't mean not store milk but try putting a cup under the breast your LO isn't feeding from...

    Re: nursing/leak questions

    I can't help with #3 but as for one #1 and #2 here goes. When I'm home I don't wear a bra...bras can actually lead to blocked ducts and it's just more convienent not to (I'm lazy by nature!). I can...
