    Re: breastfeeding after c-section

    I've had three c-sections and have never had any issues breastfeeding. I would say the only difficult thing was getting into a comfortable position afterwards, but the feedings were fine.
  2. Re: Do you hide the fact that you are still nursing?

    My 3 1/2 year old just weaned and everyone knew I was still nursing her, along with her younger sister. I never tried to hide it and am a proud public nurser, but I did try to be more discreet in...

    Re: The 3+ Club, whose with me?

    We are 3 years and 7 months!!! :clap She nurses about 3 - 4 times a week, usually at bedtime. I'm nursing a 6 month old too, and if it weren't for such a difficult pregnancy she would probably...

    Re: Wondering....

    Your milk is not bad. There is no such thing as having bad milk.

    Maybe there is something in the milk that you are eating that he is sensitive to, or maybe he is just happily nursing away, not...

    Re: I'm not weaning - yippeee

    :clap kudos to you for making the right decision for you and your baby, regardless of what others may think! It's not always easy to do.

    My three year old still wants "nursie" from time to...

    Re: What to do with FULL breast???

    Thanks ladies! I am beginning to see a slight change in supply, but the letdown is still really, really strong. She still pops off the breast and fusses a little, but I guess it's improving,...

    Re: What to do with FULL breast???

    Thanks! I've only been pumping about an ounce, sometimes two, just before feeding. I *can* get about an ounce per minute for up to 10 minutes at any given time, each breast. :yikes

    What to do with FULL breast???

    I'm block feeding in four hour increments. Before putting Cecilia on the "full" breast for the first time after four hours, I've been pumping to help relieve some of the fullness, and also to help...

    Re: Letdown

    I've been block feeding since birth - one breast per feeding, but that hasn't helped AT ALL. Now I'm on a more strict schedule with it. One breast for four hours, then switch. I'm also pumping a...

    There seems to be constant issues with this baby! :cry

    I have oald/os, so we've been dealing with that. Had it with dd1 as well. I normally have pretty painful letdowns. On the occassion that I...

    Re: Breastfeeding myths

    I was told by a doctor to give my 3 month old ds cereal with pumped bm to help him sleep through the night! Boy, did that cause some fights with the ex dh! Needless to say, I never went to that...

    Re: Sad and Frustrated

    Congratulations!

    I would not worry at all about watching the clock. My personal advice would be to stay in bed (if possible), shirt off with as much skin to skin as possible, and keep baby...
  15. Re: 5 week old -baby seems to get lazy then frustrated while nursing

    :ita
    Could be lots of reasons, but I always try the most obvious first. Try burping when he stops actively sucking, then if he still seems hungry you can offer the breast again.

    Some babies,...

    Re: what to give LO for snack

    At that age my dd's favorite snack was baby lima beans. We just put them in a bowl for her and she'd snack all day on them. Pretty much any fruit or veggie that your lo can pick up works well for...
  17. Re: Boob preference - but what about the other one?

    :lol We do this - Rielly-Anne calls it "stand up nursie." She hasn't touched my left breast in almost 3 weeks. Every now and then she'll act like she's going to nurse from that side, then giggle...

    Re: when to start beans?

    Beans were a huge hit for our dd. We started around 8 months as well. Just cooked them enough so they weren't too hard and cut in half the larger ones.
  19. Re: Do I have to wean baby because he has to go to daycare?

    I'm seeing red flags all over the place. Even the very best daycare provider is not replacing you. It is not their job to tell you what is best or how to raise your child. Their job is to take...

    Re: Nursing until age 2..

    This sounds like a pretty good idea to me. It's what I do, even though she still nurses constantly round the clock. But she likes to have "nursie meeuk" in a cup at meals.

    Re: Discouraged with nursing already

    Hi Mama! :hello

    I think you are doing a great job! It is very difficult, but things will calm down as time goes by. It will get easier. I had flat nipples with my son, but they "popped" out...

  25. Re: Baby loves unhealthy food, need advices.

    I agree with the previous posters - just keep offering him the healthy food. He won't starve. He will eat when he's hungry and he figures out that junk is not being offered anymore.
