    Re: Help! I had to stop, now what?

    Thanks for all the help and support. Yesterday I started breastfeeding about every other feeding or just when I could and the pain was still pretty bad. I went back to the doctor today and she gave...

    Re: Help! I had to stop, now what?

    Thanks Malleyboo! I pumped for a month with my first child, but I don't really want to this time. I'm in a lot of pain and the pumping hurts just as bad as the nursing. I have candidiasis and...

    I'm currently using disposable Lansinoh pads. Where can you get cloth ones?

    nipple pain

    My LO is 11 days old. I'm still having some difficulty like the people that posted in earlier threads, which I read, with positioning. I had an infection that was starting to develop and my doc...
  6. Re: If I can only make it through engorgement!

    It's gotten a lot better since my first post. We're figuring out the latch thing, too. I had a C-section, so I'm limited when it comes to some positions because the incision is still a little...
  7. Re: If I can only make it through engorgement!

    I bought some breast gel packs that can be heated or cooled, and those seem to be helping. The last time I fed her I wore the warm compress right before and then massaged them while leaning over the...
  8. If I can only make it through engorgement!

    Hello, my DD is 4 days old today. I'm having some difficulty getting her to open wide enough and getting my clumsy self maneuvered to get a good latch. I'm really engorged right now and it feels...

    Re: Frequent watery stools and diaper rash

    I noticed you live in Texas, I'm pretty sure you can get Boudreaux's Butt Paste. Sounds awful, but it really works! It's what we used when DS got really bad. We used Desitin Creamy when in...

    Re: Last minute C-section tips

    I definitely had no problems with the supply issue with my first c-section. I'm going to bring a hand pump just in case, but I really don't expect to use it. I guess better safe than sorry!
    I...

    Re: Last minute C-section tips

    Thanks so much for all your help. I have my LLL leaders numbers on the fridge. I have an Arm's Reach co-sleeper bassinett(sp?) by the bed. I also had a boppy last time, but sometimes it just got...

    Re: Last minute C-section tips

    I'm pretty sure they gave me Tylenol 3's (for when I left the hospital) with Gracie. Before that I had the morphine IV with a button. I'm glad that thing had a timer on it! Also, I don't remember...

    Re: Last minute C-section tips

    Thanks for the advice so far. I should have written in the original post that this is my 2nd C-section. The first one was an emergency, but the nurses brought her to me in recovery and I nursed her...

    Re: Is this normal?

    I'm new at this, too, but I read Dr. Jack Newman's book and he suggested breast compressions for babies that fall asleep during nursing. I would follow the pp's advice, but also read this article....

    Re: We all love a new position...

    I wonder how well it would work after a C-section. That might be something to try when my lo is born. I never tried it with Gracie, we might have done better!:shrug

    Re: Hiccups and Latch

    It's fairly normal for babies to have the hiccups. I never did anything, just let them pass. My cousin, however, uses what's called "gripe water". She gives her a few drops and they go away. I...
