  2. Re: Arching back- crying after feed - holding breath!

    Sometimes I can get a burp and other times I can't. If I don't get a burp, usually there is some spit up later. I was so worried about choking, I used a wedge and had LO sleep on her side for the...

    Re: nipple shield weaning

    Agree with others posts. Just wanted to add not to feel bad about the scabby nipples in baby's mouth. My LO didn't have a clue about the 'gross' way they looked. There was even some blood in her spit...

    Re: Do I pump both sides or one at a time?

    Re: how long?

    I can't remember exactly how long it took for me to even out. My left side was bigger and produced WAY more milk. I'd say sometime between 7 and 12 weeks it got better, so I'd give it awhile before...

    Re: New mom with questions!

    Hi! :hello

    I usually just feed on one side. Unless she only eats for a few minutes (less than a full feeding), then we start on that same side again, since she didn't have enough time to empty it....

    Re: How often do you BF your 3 or 4 month old?
