  1. Re: Will I hurt my supply by doing this ?

    Thanks girls. I just hadn't heard of that before. I had problems back around the 4-5 month mark pumping at work (partly due to my baby being completely distracted and not wanting to eat). He gets...

    Re: I'm going to cry.

    Oh no....sorry you lost some milk. That is heartbreaking. Did you know it was bad because it smelled funny?

    I did end up letting the little guy drink the milk the next day. The day after that...
  4. Re: Distracted baby=low milk supply and low weight gain!

    I always do a feeding when I go to bed...around 11pm, which is a dream feed. He doesn't wake up for it. And in the middle of the night, he usually wakes up just enough that it wakes me and I feed...

    Re: I'm going to cry.

    No no...not frozen. It was freshly pumped during work yesterday, refrigerated immediately after pumping at work, and I took it out of the refrigerator when I left for home at 7:30pm yesterday. I...

    Re: I'm going to cry.

    So to clarify, would you freeze it now, and then thaw it tonight to send tomorrow (to use it ASAP)? Or keep it in the fridge and send it to daycare to use tomorrow? I could also freeze it, and only...
  7. Distracted baby=low milk supply and low weight gain!

    I need help. My little guy is almost 5 months old now, and we have been battling his distractibility for nearly 2 months now. And now, he's so physically active, that I can't hardly keep him still....

    Re: I'm going to cry.

    No ice packs. The only thing keeping it cool was the insulation of the bag, and the milk itself. I immediately put it in the fridge this morning. I don't work today, so I have no need for the milk...

    I'm going to cry.

    So, this morning, I found my little insulated lunchbag (with 22 oz of breastmilk) still sitting in the entryway where I had set it down to quick change clothes after work last night (first mistake, I...

    Re: Thrush-What to do about baby?

    I genuinely like our doctor, and I have a feeling that if I'd discussed this with him personally (and not just heard via the nurse who'd listened to my voicemail and asked him) that he probably would...

    Thrush-What to do about baby?

    So, I'm fairly certain I've got some thrush going on with my nipples. Bright red, starting to get some stinging pain in my breasts and with latch. Not terrible yet, but I like to be proactive....
  12. Re: Stressed about introducing a bottle.

    Nursing without the shield is perfectly comfortable for me. There is no pain. As long as he's willing, he seems to latch onto it well. I can hear audible swallows immediately. When he's done, my...
  13. Stressed about introducing a bottle...

    My baby just turned 6 weeks old. I have to go back to work in just a little over 3 weeks (my 12 weeks of maternity leave will be over since I stopped working a couple weeks before he was born). He...

    Re: Need Tips for Positioning

    Just to clarify...I didn't (by my definitions) successfully nurse my first child. By a week, he refused to latch (I realize now that a little patience and perseverance probably would have gotten us...

    Need Tips for Positioning

    So, I've got a 4 week old baby. He is gaining wonderfully. Urine and stool output are fantastic. I have a bit of an overactive letdown, but it seems to be regulating itself as the weeks go by. He...
