  1. Re: Is it time to stop the madness? or at least dial it down

    Hey there! I am actually a mental health therapist and social worker and I too struggled with the anxiety about milk. Mine was around making enough but I think it affected let down. I have odd...

    Re: very low milk supply at 6 weeks

    Hi! Wow mama you are amazing and I just wanted to provide you with encouragement and a virtual hug. I had a really hard time too but it did get better, with a lot of focus on nursing (you've already...

    Re: Pumping at night

    What is your sleeping arrangement like these days? It's possible that if you provided the caregiver with 12 ounces instead of 15 and then let him tell you when he was hungry, he'd probably nurse more...

    Re: 36 hour trip--is pumping necessary?

    Can you self express? By hand I mean? I never figured out how but if you can no need to bring the pump. It might be good to have something just in case you get really full and it hurts, or worse,...
  5. Re: 12 month old refusing expressed milk-please help!

    Most likely not, that is really young. It is common however, for young toddlers to reject expressed breast milk. It doesn't mean they are weaning, and it sounds like he still likes to nurse. In fact,...
  6. Re: The most beautiful comment on nursing

    That is so great. I have trouble with a close friend who is really judgmental about me still nursing my 18 month old (really? He is not even considered "extended" in my book until we go past 2!) She...
  7. Re: Enjoying EBF, but I want my body back!

    It sounds like you are definitely conflicted. What would help sway you towards sticking with it for at least one year? Formula just does not offer the necessary building blocks for life as breast...

    Re: Baby Slings

    Have you looked into the Moby? I found that affordable and easy to nurse in, but then graduated to the ErgoBaby, which is pricier but my absolute favorite, and is definitely nursing friendly! You can...

    Re: Breast milk storage

    Hi there! I won't weigh in one way or the other on whether you should throw that milk away. The thought of throwing milk away makes me physically ill! It's like liquid gold (unlike you I had an under...
  10. Re: Need to drink water to have let down

    I do drink a lot of water, though I've found I've needed to not drink as much after a year. I know that water intake does directly correlate to my ability to let down in the pump so I've just made it...

    Re: Is it to late?

    Hi, and congratulations on your little one!

    I want to see some other moms respond (thinking specifically LLL Meg or mammal would be able to help here). But first thing - IT IS NOT TOO LATE! A...

    Re: 8-mo-old not interested in solids

    Just now read this...and that is perfectly normal! "Solids before 1 are just for fun". There isn't a lot of need for the nutrient yet, although avos and bananas are awesome nutritiously if he does...

    Re: 8-mo-old not interested in solids

    Hi! I was going to say, have you tried the BLS method? I wish I had done it. Well, I essentially switched to it. I found it was easier for my DS when he started to get more teeth as well. I offered a...

    I was just thinking of adding to this thread! Haha! DS is 16 months, and I'm still not understanding all of his words, but when I walk in the door from a day at work, he comes up, says "mmmmmm" and...
  16. Re: Partial strike during cold/teething

    Thanks so much everyone for your tips! He is finally better and nursing has started to be more frequent. Also appetite in general has increased. I found out he was really teething badly as well, more...
  17. Partial strike during cold/teething

    Hi all,

    My DS, 16 months, appears to be getting over a painful respiratory infection or virus (doctor confirmed) in which his throat has been sore. He has also had a molar erupt in the last few...

    Re: Breastfeeding and mom's weight

    Vitamin D is for me. He also gets some in his prescribed supplements (which is covered by his insurance). I can ask my new doc about prescribing prenatals although I didn't think they would do that...

    Re: Breastfeeding and mom's weight

    Do any of you still taking prenatal supplements? Or any supplements? In an effort to save money I stopped supplements months ago ( I still take 2000-3000 of Vitamin D drops per day and a probiotic)....
  20. Re: Healing bite on nipple? And how to stop biting?

    Hi there. I feel your pain, quite literally! I recently healed from not just one bite but a series of biting incidents which were almost more like teeth cutting during my DS pre-molar's coming in. It...
  21. Re: Help! Not letting down for 10 mo baby

    Just curious: How often are you pumping in addition to that noon feeding during the work day? At 10 months I was still pumping 4 times believe it or not, one extra post feeding pump in the early...

    Re: nursing for HOURS in the morning

    Happens with my 16 month old DS, a frequent morning feeder in those last hours of quality sleep for me. I think if you wanted to start setting limits, it might be okay to do that. I haven't done it...
  23. Re: almost 12mo, LATE bedtime, nursing and sleeping concerns

    Also, I don't think you said how much sleep total she is getting? Not only is that really late but if she's having trouble with naps too and not sleeping in to make up for the 3 or 4 hours missed,...
  24. Re: almost 12mo, LATE bedtime, nursing and sleeping concerns

    And I forgot to mention I often fall asleep too but DH texts me to wake me up so we can have our quiet time. Guess I'm tired from all that, ha!
  25. Re: almost 12mo, LATE bedtime, nursing and sleeping concerns

    What happens when you try nursing her down in a dark room, at 7:30? We do this after a routine and occasionally he refuses to sleep and did so around 1 year, but things have improved drastically. In...
