    Re: Milk supply and birth control

    I got the Paraguard two months ago and it has been great so far. It's the non-hormonal IUD. My daughter is six months old and I haven't had a period yet, so I don't know how it will be once my...

    Re: Supply Questions

    I would talk to your doctor to hopefully get some perspective. It might help to have your doctor print out your baby's growth charts. My daughter was born August 13 and my friend's son was born on...

    Re: DH lost job, I gotta work!!

    I had a lot of trouble pumping enough while away at work, but I managed by pumping one breast when I woke (leaving the other for baby) and pumping again after she went to bed. Maintaining the...

    Re: Night Feedings

    My daughter is 6 months and sleeps for two 6 hour stretches. She goes down at 6:30 pm, I dream feed her at 10:30 before I go to bed, and she wakes for one night feeding around 4:00am. She wakes for...
  5. Re: Working mom, still bf--is it normal to feel so exhausted

    I just wanted to second the advice given above.

    As a first time mother just six months ago, I found the constant commentary overwhelming at times. People telling me what to do and how to do it...

    Re: Daycare and pumped milk question

    The daycare we looked into said that while they cannot offer the bottle again, they can cap it and allow you to take it home at the end of the day. They don't have to dump it, but they can't offer...

    Re: Pumping etiquette question

    I actually thought about that and have considered it for days when it's fairly quiet. I've never seen someone PIP before, but I could probably be discreet. I'm not sure I'd want to deal with it if...

    Re: Pumping etiquette question

    Thanks for the replies. I do have an office, but it's twenty minutes away and a long walk from parking lot to building and colleagues pop in and distract me from writing. Just getting there would...

    When I'm gone and my daughter wanted to comfort nurse, my husband found it really helpful to use a sling for baby wearing. Especially when she...

    Pumping etiquette question

    I'm a professor and frequently write at neighborhood coffeeshops for four or more hours at a time. I usually have a laptop and lots of books with me. The coffeeshops nearest me only have single...

    Re: Thumb Sucking While Nursing?

    My six month old daughter started doing that at around 4.5 months and dropped it pretty quickly after about two weeks. It's like she discovered her thumb, thought it was the coolest thing ever for...

    Re: Caloric needs and milk supply

    Thanks for the reply. I keep the Symphony at home since I pump at home every morning and every evening and sometimes in between. I'm only in my office three days a week, usually only for about five...

    Re: Caloric needs and milk supply

    Thanks, your reply is really helpful. I pump straight into the Medela bottles, which range from 2.5 to 6 oz. I almost never have more than about 3.5 oz in a bottle, and there are usually quite a...

    Re: Caloric needs and milk supply

    No new meds, I can't be pregnant, and I'm on the non-hormonal IUD. I'm using a hospital grade Medela Symphony at home (it's a rental) and an old Medela PISA at work. While I'm out and about, I use...

    Caloric needs and milk supply

    I've been watching my caloric intake since the New Year to try to lose the last of the baby weight. My daughter is 5 months old and exclusively BF.

    My problem is that I haven't been able to...

    Re: ready to give up on breastfeeding

    Oh my gosh, mama, I totally understand where you are. I had to use a nipple shield with my daughter for the first month or so and it was soooooo frustrating. It was two steps forward and one step...

    Re: Green Poop?

    My daughter is EBF and has green poop occasionally. My doc said it's totally normal so long as she's growing and not fussy. From everything I've read, green poop is a totally normal variation,...
  18. Re: Uneven milk production (and breasts)

    Thanks for the reply! I'll try that. I've been offering that breast first, but I'll also try pumping after each feeding.

    And the short outings are without babe (like my morning workouts) and...
  19. Re: Will our 4 week old ever "get it" after so many bottles?

    (And to support what the PP said, I slept with her on my chest for those first weeks home so she got lots of skin to skin and "mom time". I think it helped.)
  20. Re: Will our 4 week old ever "get it" after so many bottles?

    My daughter spent the first week in the NICU and I had to pump and deal with her getting a pacifier and bottle (my pumped milk) and a nipple shield since we couldn't get a good latch. We had some of...
  21. Uneven milk production (and breasts)

    My daughter is 7 weeks and gaining well. My question is whether it is possible to increase milk production in one breast. My left breast is significantly smaller than the other (it always has been)...

    Re: Nipple pain and cluster feeding

    Thanks for the advice. She's been a lot better since I started using lots of pillows, etc. to make sure she's not dragging my nipple down. I've also been consistently correcting her latch when it...
  23. Re: Pediatrician told me my baby is too fat...

    You could also look for family practice doctors instead of pediatricians. My doctor delivered my daughter and cares for both of us, and I've heard from other people that they've had better luck with...

    Nipple pain and cluster feeding

    My daughter is 4 weeks old and so far we've been doing well breastfeeding. She spits up a lot and cluster feeds during the day quite a bit, but until today it wasn't really an issue. Today,...
