  1. Re: Please help: Bad case of blocked ducts

    Just because it got better, it still doesn't mean the lecithin did it. Maybe it was just ready to become dislodged anyway and it happens to be that you took lecithin at the same time ;)
  2. Re: Starting daycare - daytime feeds and naps?

    Answers to your questions:

    1. Definitely. I would pump two times a day on work days but nurse more often than that on weekends. When I pump weaned, I still had enough when he nursed on weekends....

    Re: 11month old mayor breast refusal

    I'm sorry I don't have advice as the PP covered that, but I just had to say that I laughed when I read your thread title, "11month old mayor breast refusal" - I never heard of an 11 month old mayor,...

    Re: Two bottles a day at daycare?

    That really sounds like an insane amount of milk for daycare! My baby at that age was sent with a 5 oz and 4 oz bottle. With a jar of puree which he usually didn't take. Sometimes it was just 8...
  5. Re: Please help: Bad case of blocked ducts

    I found deep massaging (to the point that it really hurts like $%#$) to be the only thing that got my plugs out (and I've had so many I can't keep track). Before and after every feeding, massage like...

    Re: Airplane flight at 4 months old

    I was pretty worried about it since my ears are so painful during landing, but my baby didn't have any such issue. I couldn't nurse him for the entire landing since that took about 1/2 hour and he...
  7. Re: Newborn Suddenly Refuses To Nurse

    Is nursing painful for you? Has your baby been checked for any latch issues like a tongue tie?
  8. Re: Using peppermint and sage to reduce oversupply

    I don't have much advice but I have tried during one point of engorgement to put cabbage leaves in my bras. They worked really well to shush everything down. When the leaves turn limp, change.

    Re: first solids

    Well just because your baby ate the apricot doesn't mean he really needs to eat foods now. Most breastfed babies don't need solids until later. I personally didn't start with solids until 7-8 months...

    Re: Pumping supply seriously low!

    I wondered about that too but maybe OP meant that she nurses 5-6 times by day (including more feedings at night)?

    Re: Pumping supply seriously low!

    I agree with this 100%. In our case it was fine because I was only short an ounce or two, but if it's more, then yes, I'd agree that formula is a healthier choice. There's a certain amount of milk a...
  13. Re: How quickly to introduce new foods

    We have major allergy issues in my family too but thankfully my baby doesn't show any signs of those. I gave one "allergy-potential" food a week. Wheat, peanuts (after a year), eggs, tree nuts, etc....

    Re: Pumping supply seriously low!

    How about adding a little solids so you don't have to send so much milk. My production gradually waned after about 6 months and by 10 months I was also sending along a baby jar. If he was hungry, he...
  15. Re: Breastfeed during the day, bottle at night. Possible?

    It's possible but why would you want to give bottles at night? Personally, I'd rather limit feedings at night than give bottles. It's annoying to have to prepare one in the middle of the night, and...
  16. Re: High needs baby and daycare decisions

    Every baby is different but in almost all cases, babies adjust really well to daycare and being around other children. I was also worried about this but then saw that it was the best decision for him...
  17. Re: Ear infection and nursing position

    Is your baby's ear infection one sided? Then she may prefer nursing on only one side. That's what happened with my baby when he got ear infections. if it's a double, though, both sides are painful :(...
  18. Re: Road trip w/ 1 year old that has only nursed at home, ho

    Maybe you can make a test run for a trip that's about 2 hours or so. Or 1 hour each way. Just to see if she would behave that way again. I nursed in the car so often and my baby was a very distracted...
  19. Re: Pump breaking down, does hand expressing work just as we

    You can try a manual pump which is cheap. My friend claimed she got way more output from a hand pump than a double electric! She liked the fact that you can give one long squeeze in a short amount of...

    Re: Clicking When Nursing

    Oh interesting because my son didn't make the clicking noises in the early days (when I had oversupply and fast letdowns) but only later on. And he had a tongue tie.

    I guess different things can...
  21. Re: Please help! Trouble with feeding and pain and soreness

    From the description in your post, it sounds like your baby may have a latching issue. It's really hard to judge without the help of an LC, though, but to me it sounds like a tongue tie (only because...

    Re: Clicking When Nursing

    I thought clicking noises was due to tongue ties?

    Re: Weaning off the pump

    Exactly the reason why I switched to popup bottles and cow milk because every day he came home with his regular baby bottle full of my hard-earned EBM :(

    Re: Weaning off the pump

    What I did was merge pumping times into one central time. I pumped twice at work each day, at 12 and at 3. So when I pump weaned, I just pumped once at 1:30 which was halfway through. I did that for...

    Re: Can't wait for 1 year birthday

    I don't get why ppl are so against cows milk. Most adults who drink milk are drinking cow's. Go to Starbucks and see for yourself lol! My baby didn't love cows milk right away, yet he was refusing my...
