    Re: Should I pump out foremilk?

    If you want to correct an oversupply problem you will need to block feed diligently and not just casually. Block feeding will be the most effective technique in correcting oversupply. Also, it may...
  2. Re: How to get in touch w/ a LC and how much for it?

    I'd try this -- It's a International Registry of IBCLC's -- http://www.iblce.org/international%20registry.htm

    You may also try your local phone book but I'd suggest making sure that whoever you go...

    Re: Milk choking Ds- Vent...

    Average weight gain for a breastfed baby is between 4 and 7 oz. per week. There really is not such thing as "too much" when it comes to weight gain, although gaining rapidly can indicate that baby...

    Have you tried nursing baby at 8 p.m. on whatever breast you want to then waking him before you go to bed to nurse the other side? Or have you tried nursing him at 8 p.m. and pumping the other side...

    Re: Low supply after illness

    I wouldn't be too concerned over your food intake if you simply aren't interested in eating. Chances are, this won't last long and it really shouldn't have any effect on your milk as long as it's...

    Re: Help!

    OK - what kind of pump are you using? Is it old? Is it possible that your pump isn't working up to par anymore? Have you been sick or taking any medication? Are you sure you aren't dehydrated? ...

    Re: 4months - will I always be engorged?

    Well, if you want to decrease your milk supply then you have to decrease nipple/breast stimulation. Milk supply depends almost entirely upon breast milk removal from the breast. Supply & demand. ...
  8. Re: breast implant issue/relactation..help please.

    Have you tried asking a local LLL Leader to come to your house and evaluate baby's latch? Is it possible that baby's latch is just bad/off and that's what is causing the pain? It sounds like it to...

    Re: 6 days old - Will it calm down eventually?!

    Congratulations!

    Having a newborn baby can be overwhelming even for a veteran mom -- but it sounds like you're doing well.

    Yes, things will calm down. Eventually, lol. For now, just go with...

    Re: Now I've done it...green poops

    Green poop in and of itself does not warrant concern. Green poop is normal.

    From what you describe, it sounds like you've got an overactive let-down which is often accompanied by oversupply,...

    Re: 4months - will I always be engorged?

    There's no reason for the last feeding to be from both sides unless you want it to be. You can nurse him from just one breast if you want. Since you aren't having any issues during the day, you...

    Re: 4months - will I always be engorged?

    It sounds like you've got a good case of oversupply. Are you practicing block feeding? If not, give it a try. And are you pumping at all when you're engorged? Be careful with the pumping. It's...

    Re: Low supply after illness

    I wouldn't worry too much. I don't think your supply would've dropped much at all if you didn't nurse only for 24 hours. Just keep yourself hydrated, rest and nurse, nurse, nurse. Try taking a...

    Keep in mind that many working & pumping mom's see a decrease in their milk supply around the 6 month mark.

    Have you tried talking to the women on the working...

    Right, thanks Deb! Yes, Gabi's Mommy, can you tell us why you believe it has decreased? Is it because you're pumping output is less in the past 2 weeks? Or is it because baby is wanting to nurse...

    Talia, Can you please tell us why you believe your milk supply is decreased? That will help us evaluate what's going on a bit better.

    Try not to supplement with formula as you effectively tell...

    I'm sorry you are so sad and frustrated, Wendy. If all else fails, repeat the mommy-mantra: "This too shall pass." Because it will :)

    I wouldn't worry about the length of time your baby spends...

    Re: milk supply

    Your milk supply may appear to be low at night but as long as you are putting baby to breast during that time, your supply is likely just fine. Often times we feel like our supply is low in the...

    What is the drug you'll be taking? I've known one woman who nursed exclusively from one breast after losing the other one to a masectomy.

    The chemotherapy shouldn't have much of an effect on...

    Hi there ~ I'm sorry you are dealing with this. Unfortunately, your doctor's advice to stop nursing was unwarranted. In fact, if anything, breastmilk would've helped your baby to overcome her...

    Re: pumping causing oversupply?

    You made perfect sense :) However, if you are suffering from oversupply, try using only one breast for about a 4 hour period of time. You'll be a bit uncomfortable for a couple of weeks (hopefully...

  24. Re: 6 year old wants to breastfeed, should i let her?

    She may just be curious. My oldest once asked if he could nurse too (he was about 2 or 3 at the time) so I said, "Sure, come here." His eyes got as big as silver dollars, his mouth gaped open and...
