    Re: Marshmallow Root for Let Down?

    I wish the bottle gave dosage recommendations! I'd hate to go in and guess the amount and have a negative effect on BFing. :yikes

  7. Re: DD Pulling Away and Leaking While Nursing

    Sorry, I should have been a little clearer. Milk is leaking from the side she nurses on. Almost as if she didn't have a good latch, but she does. I've tried unlatching and relatching and...

    Re: Pumping with breastfeeding?

    It's okay. I'm lucky if I get 3 oz at each session. I have the most optimal output in the mornings, which I know is normal, but it usually dwindles down to 1.5-2 oz toward the end of the day. And...

  17. Re: when to pump and how much to expect

    Okay, I must be unbelievable uncoordinated. How in the world do women balance nursing and pumping at the same time??? I'm back to work now and I am very sleep deprived. If I can save time by...
