  1. Re: 7 mo old gut problems / pressure to switch to formula

    I know nothing about leaky gut, but I recall hearing this story on NPR while driving one day. There may be some good info for you or people to contact. I do recall whatever the parents started...
  2. Re: Pumping schedule after 12 months

    I've never used a Freestyle, but on the photos it looks similar to a PISA, which I have used. Make sure to change the little white membranes regularly. I even occasionally changed out the yellow...
  3. Re: Pumping schedule after 12 months

    I will tell you what I did/am doing. It may answer some of your questions:

    I continued pumping after 12 months for both kids. I can't entirely remember how I went about it with my daughter, but...
  4. Re: Trouble with weaning and weight of a breastfed 8 month o

    I'm no doctor, and cannot speak to the rate of growth overall, but your daughter is right about where my son was weight-wise at that age (I don't remember exactly) and he was born 2 lbs heavier. ...
  5. Re: 13 month old only falls asleep while bf, need to go to w

    Since you have a long time until your child starts daycare, can you start off with just mornings a few days a week and see how it goes, and then build up to longer days that would include naps? We...

    Re: Not sure what to do!!!

    The advice I always give to friends -- and it's tough to give -- is beware bad information from pediatricians, hospital lactation consultants, and especially anyone in your family who has not nursed....
  7. Re: Vent about annoying nursing habits

    My son is a pain in the neck, too, and has been since birth. My daughter would bite occasionally, and there are times he's bitten me 10-12 times a day. I set him down and he immediately starts...

    I know it all started with Dr. Spock or similar child "experts"but I really don't get this obsession some folks have towards "spoiling" children with love and attention. My dad was refusing to give...

    Re: 2 under 2? How To Cope?

    Are you in a position for your LO to go to part-time daycare or get a sitter part-time? I had my husband working from home during this recent maternity leave, AND my daughter was already in...

    Re: Protein powder and Breastfeeding

    he others who lost weight definitely tried to do it by calorie restriction and/or exercise, and their milk supply definitely took a hit.

    I forgot to mention this in my post, that with my first...

    Re: Protein powder and Breastfeeding

    Yes, reena, what you say appears to be true from what I've read. Apparently some women keep weight on in case of famine -- so my children would survive if we were on The Walking Dead, but in the...
  12. Re: pumping hurts - small nipples, large breasts & hygeia pu

    This may be the case. I don't have the pumping problems you are having, but I do find it hurts a little more when I start off with the bra. I don't necessarily get better output, but it does seem...
  13. Re: pumping hurts - small nipples, large breasts & hygeia pu

    Have you tried even a larger size of flange, just to be safe (the 27mm)? When I have a flange that's too large, my nipples go way too far into the tube. But you're not having that happen. It...
  14. Re: Back at work, question about bottles

    My little boy has never taken very much milk while I'm gone. And he didn't seem to make up for it when I was home, either. He has been a pretty slow gainer, but I figured -- what more can I do? I...

    Re: Constant nursing in 16 week old

    I agree with mommal about finding a safe place to sleep lying next to baby. It is best if it is just you and baby, in my opinion -- Daddy elsewhere, if possible. That's one less person to disturb...
  16. Re: Not sure where to ask this-regarding exercise.

    Actually, you can get plugs from exercise. I have -- once from running and once from jumping jacks, both times when my LO was under 3 months old (I think the plugs are less likely after that time,...

    Re: Protein powder and Breastfeeding

    I would be careful about altering your diet too much. Don't go to extremes. It is a myth that EVERYONE loses weight while breastfeeding. I pretty much can't lose weight while breastfeeding, which...
  18. Re: High needs baby and daycare decisions

    We have hired two young nannies who worked previously at daycares. Although we couldn't pay much it seems like many daycares pay minimum wage. So we paid more than that at least. But we normally have...
  19. Re: Breastfeed during the day, bottle at night. Possible?

    There is no reason to stop breastfeeding, and only reasons to keep doing so! The WHO recommends breastfeeding until at least age 2 -- not stop at 2, but at least get that far. So tell your...
  20. Re: Vit D supplement for breastfed babies

    There are different brands of Vitamin D. We use Carlson's which has a dosage of one drop instead of a dropper-full. I think it's a good idea to give it but we like that brand because it doesn't have...

    Re: sitting up

    I personally thought it meant can sit "unsupported." I think my son was still toppling over a bit when I started him on solids, but mostly could sit if I set him somewhere.
  22. Re: Going back to work - HR telling me to pump in the bathro

    I have friends who've used conference rooms and other strange places. But this fancy building sounds like it was designed for fancy, but is nursing friendly! I say if you can't find anywhere, then...

    Re: Poor latch... confused

    My babies had bad latches, and I knew it -- ouch!

    I am so happy to hear your daughters will be helping out. I just wanted to chime in on that part -- we have hired younger nannies for both of...
  24. Re: Moving - How to Transport Freezer Stash

    You can buy plugin coolers with car adapters but not sure how cold they get to keep it frozen. 500 oz is a lot. Could you donate some and move less? I can barely fit my 50 oz or so in my freezer!

    Re: Two bottles a day at daycare?

    That seems like a huge bottle to me. Even 5 oz sounds a lot, although if you can pump enough for 3 each day and he still nurses when you're home he is probably a hungry guy. My LOs only had about...
