    Re: Sex Drive...

    My LO is turning one this month, and I haven't had my period yet. I have no sex drive, either. I actually find it kind of repulsive right now. :shrug
  2. Re: Anyone else nurse their LO in this position?

    There is a position called the Australian position (well I think that's what it's called), it's lying down on your back with your baby on top. You start out with the cradle hold then slowly lie...

    Re: milk blister - suggestions?

    :hug I wish there were some way for the wound to completely heal without having to obstruct the milk duct so we can go back to enjoying nursing our babies!
  4. Re: Anyone else nurse their LO in this position?

    My soon-to-be 11-month-old sometimes nurses in that position too! I don't know what position it's called. Maybe we should give it a name. :lol
  5. Re: takes -forever- to eat; then, next cycle starts

    Hi, hang in there, it's not going to be forever that your baby will take so long to nurse. I've also been in your shoes. My son used to take forever too, sometimes his nursing sessions overlap each...

    Re: milk blister - suggestions?

    I just read somewhere that once you have a milk blister there is a tendency for it to keep recurring. Oh no!!!

    Mine hasn't completely healed yet. There is a wound (it bled yesterday while I was...

    Re: At a loss, in tears

    Yes, there is a Chinese tradition that a mom with a new baby rests for 30-45 days. The English term is "confinement", because she's not allowed to leave the house or do anything physically...
  8. Re: Help! Up all night nursing my 3 mo old! I want to stop nursing!

    Maybe you can try the Australian position? (You lying down on your back with your baby on top.) With this position, you're practically holding him, so maybe he won't wake as much/won't have a hard...

    Re: milk blister - suggestions?

    Hmmm... I'm not sure it's the latch. We've been breastfeeding for almost 11 months now and I haven't noticed any change in his latch. I'll keep that in mind, though.

    Anyway, now I have another...

    Re: Sleep problems.. breast as pacifier

    Hi! My son likes to use my breast as a pacifier, too. At first, I had a major problem with it, and I even followed the advice of several people to switch sides every 15 minutes because that would...

    Re: milk blister - suggestions?

    I was feeling better the past few days (the blister was gone), but now it's back again, and at the same spot!!! :yikes I have no idea why, since I was nursing regularly and wasn't engorged. Do...
  12. Re: Will it ever be enjoyable? Sorry about the long post.

    I can totally relate! It is hard and frustrating in the beginning, but don't worry it DOES get better! Just make sure the latch is correct, and the sore nipples will eventually go away.

    In my...
  13. Re: Fast let-down . . . how to manage this?

    Hi! My son used to choke whenever I had a let-down, too. What I did was nurse in the Australian position (me lying down with him on top). I guess the gravity reduced the spray, because he hardly...

    Re: do i have enough milk???

    Hi! Don't worry about the amount of milk that you can pump, it's not a good indication of how much milk you have. And when you pump after nursing, you will most likely get a smaller amount because...

    Re: do i give water or not?

    When my son started out with solids I didn't give him any water either. His pediatrician advised that I give him water 30 mins. after meals, to avoid diluting the digestive acids in his stomach. ...

    Re: milk blister - suggestions?

    Mine started out white and is now more yellowish, too.
  18. Re: When did your baby start to nurse efficiently?

    My baby used to take that long to nurse, too, especially when he's using me as a pacifier to get himself to sleep. I think he was around 7 months when he suddenly could finish a breast in 10 minutes...

    Re: milk blister - suggestions?

    I just tried rubbing it with a washcloth. I soaked the washcloth in hot water first. I think it worked. I was able to loosen up the skin. And it didn't hurt as much as I imagined it would. I...

    Re: milk blister - suggestions?

    I am having the same problem! It started about 2 weeks ago when I went too long without nursing, and had gotten engorged as a result. A few days later, I noticed that one of my breasts had a huge...
