    Re: silly question about peanuts

    Good question. I had the same one. When I was home with my DD I had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for lunch everyday. I started to get concerned, though, because of all the issues with peanut...

    Re: Are we doing alright?

    I can't believe that doctor told you that. What an idiot.
    My oldest (now 8 years old) was breastfed for 19 months and never drank cow's milk. For me, it wasn't because of the hormones and stuff,...

    Re: Possible blood in expressed milk

    I just went through the same thing and in a few days of antibiotics I felt 100% better. One awesome tip I found for the mastitis - for the warm, moist compresses, instead of using a washcloth, use a...
  6. Re: Why are health care professionals so ignorant sometimes?

    Well - here's an update for you... and it ties to your comment, EmmaLeigh. I just found out I'm pregnant (with #4 - BIG GULP!) We were not trying (but also not taking any artificial birth control...
  7. Re: Why are health care professionals so ignorant sometimes?

    Thanks guys:hug

    (Andrea) No new bra, but I did spend a lot of time in a swimsuit this past (Labor Day) weekend. The suits didn't have underwire and I don't think they were too tight, but maybe...
  8. Why are health care professionals so ignorant sometimes?

    Here is my vent. On Monday night this week, I started to feel like I was getting a clogged duct/mastitis. It was surprising to me b/c DD is 17 months old and I really thought clogged ducts was...

  10. Help -baby thinks I'm a human pacifier!

    I am so frustrated right now. I apologize in advance for the long post.

  11. Re: help! nursing mother going back to work

    My daughter Gabi was the same. She didn't like bottles (at all) and I was so scared when I had to go back to work at 12 weeks. There was wasted breast milk in the beginning (which killed me!!...
  12. Re: Confused about baby thrush and don't trust these doctors help!

    I haven't used Monistat for my nipples but I have used Lotrimin AF (it's actually for Athlete's foot which is kinda weird, but it has worked for me and my pediatrician recommended it so I think it's...
  13. Re: The Misadventures of GigantiBoob (incredibly long, but I tell a good story! :))

    Great story. I've been there too. But for me that engorged feeling happens a lot less frequently after about 6 months.

    Okay - this may sound bad and this may be TMI - but when this has happened...

  15. Re: So much milk & sore nipples..... :-(

    We have all been there!! This is just the beginning and while breastfeeding is "natural" it can be so "unnatural" to get the hang of it. This is new for you AND for your baby.

    Your milk supply...

    Re: Weaning & Co-sleeping

    I can't believe you've only gotten one reply! I'm in the same situation and would love to get some advice.

    My first child was weaned at 19 months. Part of the reason I nursed so long is b/c I...

    my LO loves "Tiny Bubbles" by Don Ho and other Hawaiian music. My husband created a playlist for her on the computer and he just sits with her in his arms and she falls asleep listening to her songs.

    Re: help! Jaws lives here!
