    Sore nipple (just 1)

    I have one VERY sore nipple! Since its just one its not thrush, right? It seems unlikely to be a latch issue because its just the left. Previously the breast (not nipple) was tender as it was...

    Re: Bottle fed, EBF help please

    Wow! You two have already been through a lot! Great job pumping so far! I haven't been there done that exactly, but I think it could be worth it to keep trying to nurse if you can. It is great to...
  3. Re: Milk amount with Lunch time nursing?

    I thought about just having mom bring the baby to me, but he is a long nurser-typically around 45 minutes. I can pump in 10-20, so I think that might be more feasible. We'll see!
  4. Re: Not sure if there's enough milk after 2 weeks of not nur

    I had to increase supply on my left side after decreasing to allow incision to heal. I think so long as you have any supply you can build it back up by having baby nurse nurse nurse and maybe trying...
  5. Re: Milk amount with Lunch time nursing?

    I agree about the carrier. I hardly ever leave the house without it! I'll have to see if grandma is comfortable with that or if she wants a stroller too. I'm also thinking the boppy pillow for tummy...
  6. Re: Milk amount with Lunch time nursing?

    Also, any suggestions for having the baby in the hotel would be welcome. We have traveled for weekends to our sailboat, but that is a lot like vacation home for us-key word being " home". Anything...
  7. Milk amount with Lunch time nursing?

    I am just starting back to work and I work from home 90% of the time, so I am really lucky. I knew I had a trip coming up the first week of June for three days./3 nights I just found out that I have...
  8. Re: easy (I think! question) about power pumping

    I tried it in the car this past weekend and got close to 5 oz when I usually get 2-3. I did 10 min on left, then right, etc.

    Re: Mastitis

    Oh I'm so sorry! Heat, nurse/pump, and rest. You can take ibuprofen (or Tylenol as a second choice) to help with the pain and inflamation. I found a hot bath was the mot comfortable for hand...

    Re: help with supply

    It sounds like you have not nursed or pumped much from week 2-5. Is that correct? I was in the same position on one side for about that same timeframe. It is very likely that your supply decreased,...

    Re: Mastitis-help

    I visited my OB/gyn on a Tuesday and he recognized that it was a really bad case of mastitis and possibly an abscess. I had antibiotics orally and injections in the butt for two days. Went back...

    Re: Mastitis-help

    I had mastitis that turned into an abscess. I did not stop breastfeeding. I double checked that the antibiotics I was on were ok for the baby and we continued breastfeeding. For me the side that was...
  13. Re: Leaving LO with mother in law for the weekend

    She proposed you voluntarily be separated from your 6 month old baby for a month!?! That is a LONG time for mom and baby to be apart at such a young age. Could she come visit you for a few days to...
  14. Re: we are weaned, at 4 years and 10 days...

    I haven't been there, but I agree that it might confuse her, especially since you know her best and it sounds like your instincts are saying it will confuse her. Remember that your body does what it...

    Re: Extremely painful, large lump

    I'm not an expert, but I would say its worth a call and/or trip to the doctor if you don't see it decreasing within 24 hours. If it is an abscess that came on quickly, you want to take care of it! ...
  18. Re: sudden change to 3mo feeding pattern

    Feeding 5-6 times per day sounds low. Most babies eat at least 8 times per day. Maybe since she was eating for so long (30 min per side means 1 hour per feeding, right?) she was getting enough with...

    Re: Nipple Shield Woes

    I agree, pumping a little first or using the nipple shield to start, then removing it helped to pull out my nipples so he could latch better, plus milk was right there, so baby was rewarded...

    I do the same thing MaeganAlberta. LO is 9 weeks; I am starting to look for a bed rail for extra safety as he gets more mobile, but he moves towards me, not away. You mentioned that your twins...

    Re: 3 day work trip = 90 ounces

    I realize you don't need this, but in case someone else is reading in a similar situation... I had an unexpected 2 day hospitalization and surgery and NO stash. We had to do formula for those days...

    Hey there! The previous posters have already answered a lot of your questions, so I'll share my experience with weaning from the nipple shield. First, you mentioned that your LO was born 5 weeks...

    Re: Best Manual Breast Pump

    I have the Medela manual pump and actually like it better than the freestyle for problem solving (plugged ducts, etc) because you have more control over rhythm, suction strength, etc. plus it's...
