    First of all, I am returning half the gadgets I bought. After I gently reminded my husband about the...

    Congrats! I thought about you the other day, glad things are going well! Thanks for keeping us updated.

    While my son is still nursing once daily, he is getting increasingly annoyed by this...

    Re: How to sleep for BF working mom

    :) Although I realize this could exacerbate my slight oversupply, I sometimes have to pump in the morning because sleepy-pants DD is snoozing away next to me in bed.
  4. Poll: Re: How much time does your baby nurse at every session?

    Both of my kids nursed for 10 minutes each session as newborns and 5 minutes after about week 8. This is if they are awake. If they doze off after nursing, maybe 5 minutes more.
  5. Re: 8 WO - Shallow Latch, can it improve?(LONG!)

    First of all, you get a standing applause from me! You are one determined lady, it is obvious that your journey so far has not been easy. Your child is very, very lucky to have you, as many before...

    Re: What is going on??

    TOTALLY NORMAL!!! This is called "the witching hours!" The majority of babies have this exact same behavior, usually in the evenings weeks they are young. If you look at the time of my post, I am...

    Re: funny question?

    I just googled "elf on the shelf." LOL! My children make similar faces before nursing... you are right, simultaneously creepy and heartwarming. I simply cannot wait until my daughter (11 weeks) is a...

    Thank you for the reply, maddieb. Yes, I am trying to concentrate on her overall look, rather than just "the numbers." I am using the who charts, but you just made me stop and think, I wonder if...

    Re: How to sleep for BF working mom

    No mom should feel bad about whether baby sleeps in the family bed or in a crib. Different things work for different families, and even for different babies within the same family.

    I personally...

    dropped percentile

    So as some of you know, I returned to work about 2 weeks ago. My baby is 10 weeks old now. The initial struggle was to get her to take a bottle, and now she takes it without fussing, although she...

    Re: Are you STILL breastfeeding?

    Unless someone is asking for help breastfeeding, I really don't go out of my way to talk about breastfeeding. More often than not others (both ppl I know and complete strangers) actually ask ME if I...

    Are you STILL breastfeeding?

    Warning: rant.

    I am going to cut my ears off with a machete if I hear this one more time. I guess I kind of got it when people were asking me that about my 3 year old. It is unusual in this...
  13. Re: Exclusive pumping feeling discouraged

    First of all, MANY big hugs. It sounds like you have put an unfathomable amount of work into providing breastmilk for your child. I truly understand the demands on your time at work, as I am an ER...

    Re: Flu shot for 12mo

    Did they ever culture the organism causing his pneumonia? Because the vaccines only prevent pneumonia secondary to 2 specific organisms, which are known to progress to pretty bad sepsis. Your son...
  15. Re: 7 day old rooting fussy won't latch.

    Try nursing in motion? Try standing, holding the baby in cradle position while swaying from side to side.
    Have you tried burping the baby?
    Try nursing while using a distraction: pat the baby's...
  16. Re: Cutting down pumping session at 8 months too soon?

    I do not think it is your problem, or more to the point, your baby's problem, that your employer doesn't have adequate facilities for employees who are pumping.

    You certainly should not stop...

    Re: Flu shot for 12mo

    Yes. Vaccinate. 21 children have already died this year from the flu. You don't get a second chance at that.

    Now off soap box. Flumist, or the intranasal flu vaccine, is not only available, but...

    Re: back to work!

    It is difficult to answer whether you are pumping enough without knowing how many hours you are separated from baby including travel time. You are generally supposed to pump 1-1.5 oz for every hour...

    Re: Early return to work?

    Thank you to all who replied. So at the time I posted, my biggest worry was actually getting her to accept a bottle. We had tried since 4.5 weeks of age, with limited success. I finally hired a...

    Early return to work?

    I am returning to work fairly early this time, and am having anxiety over being able to EBF again. I am working 1 day when baby is 8 weeks old, then am off for 1 week, then return to a 30 hr per...

    Re: Working during a growth spurt

    That is reassuring that you do not think supply will be a major problem. This was my major fear. I actually regularly went much longer stretches when pumping for my son (up to 7 hours), but he was...

    Working during a growth spurt

    I am going back to work in a few weeks, and my husband will be bottle feeding my baby pumped milk. Let's say baby has a growth spurt on a day when I am working. Obviously my husband will feed the...
  24. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    As special as nursing is to you, I can promise you it is just as special to your toddler, and I promise it will not end even if (not saying this will happen to you) your milk were to dry up. I have...
