  1. Re: I am very concerned I am going to have to supplement :(

    Have you changed anything? Started or stopped a medication? Is baby seeming satisfied? Its very common for babies to wet less frequently, poop less frequently, and for mother's to stop feeling...

    Re: No more nipple shield!

    Isn't it kind of a bittersweet ending? I mean, on one hand you're so happy not to have the hassle, but on the other hand you can't actually see milk! I used a shield with my first for 2.5 months,...

    Re: Would you bring a pump on vacation?

    I wouldn't take it. I don't pump now, but I did with my first, and I never took my pump with me. I always figured if I didn't have it, I would always find a way to make do nursing! I'm sure...

    Re: Warming milk a second time

    I've read its okay to reheat it once as long as it wasn't frozen milk, and within 24 hours of the first warming.

    Re: weaning off a nipple shield

    I used a nipple shield with my first and used a combination of both the methods you suggested. I would try to get my dd to latch on to my bare nipple first, and if she wouldn't then I would use the...

    Re: The twiddling just got worse

    Ds was a twiddler, big time I allowed it when he was little but it got so bad I resented him. When I had dd2 I never let her, and I thought we were past it. She found the other nipple about 2 weeks...

    Haylee didn't nurse for almost 6 months and she started nursing again. I seriously didn't think it was possible, but she did it. :shrug

    Re: Dysphoric milk ejection reflex

    I get terrible anxiety right at letdown, but only during the day, not at night. Like, I mean it doesn't wake me up. And its faded as my letdown has decreased in intensity and the babies have gotten...

    Re: The "F" word.

    Well, you will probably still have to pump 3 times a day, for 20 minutes or so at least, each time. And if you don't have enough milk, you can supplement. But I had progressively more milk with each...
  14. Re: OTC cold meds that are ok for breastfeeding

    My mom looked in my throat today and does not think strep. Its still sore. :eye I got some nasal spray and that made it worse. :lol I hate taking cold meds--they give me bad dreams, anyway. I'm...
  15. Re: OTC cold meds that are ok for breastfeeding

    I've been taking mucinex with no effect on my supply. I'm not sure why it would affect supply--its not an antihistamine. :shrug On kellymom it says you can take phenylephrine but not pseudoephedrine....

    Re: Laid-Back Breastfeeding

    Oh, I love that position! I like to sit in the recliner, with a pillow under the arm that was cradling the baby. Then I could use the other hand to get baby positioned and latched on. And then we...

    I also had a cousin, I think I might've mentioned her before, whose son had a complete cleft lip/palate. She wasn't able to nurse but she did pump for a long time. He is about 18 months and she is...

    My dd1 weighed 14.5 pounds when she turned one. She dropped from the 50th to the 15th between her 6 and 9 month checkups, and then down to the 3rd and finally below the charts. I might be a little...

    Re: Trying to decide whether to wean or wait

    Solid food are for experimentation only until baby is 12 months old or older. There is no need to rush solids. Some indicators that baby is ready for solids is that he/she is sitting up on his/her...
  24. Re: 4 weeks old-still need to wake every 2 hours to feed?

    If your baby is having plenty of wet diapers and gaining weight adequately, and your milk supply is fine, there is generally no need to wake up during the night hours to feed him/her. :gvibes

    Re: Baby Gags Self?

    All 3 of mine have done this at one point or another. Dd2, my youngest, did it at about that same age. I think its normal and she will grow out of it. :gvibes
