    Re: pumping again - some questions

    Big help!! Thanks!!

    Last time my DD didn't latch well, and I didn't understand enough about bfing to realize that in the first week a baby should nurse non-stop. I didn't get into see a LC until...
  3. Re: 2 month old in 1st percentile for weight. So discourage

    First off I want to say that you need to keep in mind there are healthy babies at every percentile. Is your doctor using a weight chart specifically for breastfed babies? Because babies who are...

    pumping again - some questions

    I am currently at home on maternity leave with my DS who is now just over two months. I wanted to start pumping to have a little stash for when I need to leave him with DH or a sitter if I need to go...
  5. Re: Breastfeeding in Public: Why is it still so taboo??

    Some of the nursing tops available allow you to cover up quick if baby pops off, you can quickly cover the exposed nipple lol. They also allow for extremely discrete nursing, most people won't even...
  6. Re: nursing to sleep/night nursing and dental health

    This makes me so angry. My dentist on every time I am in tells me not to night nurse, and to quickly night wean to prevent cavities. Bfing does not pool milk around the teeth like it would if a...
  7. Re: Prescription to increase milk supply...

    I took the pills, and you take enough and keep taking it until your sweat and uring smell like maple syrup. It's also the same type of smell you would have if you eat a lot of curry as fenugreek is...
  8. Re: Have Mastitis: Really need support & encouragement

    I agree with the PPs. Heat and massage. It sounds crazy, and I thought it was but my grandmother told me to take a wide tooth comb and essentially comb my breast from chest to nipple, and use the...
  9. Re: Prescription to increase milk supply...

    The prescription you will want is called domperidone. I got it from my GP. I had to take 30mg-3 times a day. It took about 2 weeks to work, but I did notice a big difference in my supply. I also...

    Elizabeth Pantley's No Cry Sleep Solution has the pantley pull off, where when the sucking becomes fluttery you gently unlatch. And yes they will protest, and you unlatch againn and again, and again....

    Re: Logistics of BF and Babywearing

    I never had sucess in a moby, couldn't figure that out either. However, when I switched my DD to the Ergo, it was much easier to nurse. I just loosen the shoulder straps, and slide her down and...

    Toddler Nursing is Awesome!

    I have a wonderful almost 17 month DD, who loves nursing. She now says "Nurse" when she wants to nurse, and says "mamma Nurse, want it" which I think is hilarious.

    When I started nursing I knew...

    Re: Increasing Supply

    I noticed the best increase taking domperidone and fenugreek and pumping. Weaned off the pump and fenugreek as it gave DD loose poops and still take the dpd.

    Re: Do you need to give cow's milk?

    I agree with PP. Bad advice from GP. First of all there are healthy kids at all weight percentiles. My DD has been at the 25th percentile all along and she is now 15 months and 20 pounds. My DD...

    Re: how many times/day are you nursing?

    My DD was nursing every 1-3 hours. Usually closer to every hour. At 14 months we nurse on demand when we are together, and she nurses just as frequently. I don't think there is a "normal" amount of...
