  1. Re: super strong let-down/what age can they handle it?

    My little one is almost 4 months now, and she's been dealing really well with my forceful letdown for about a month or so. Sometimes when it goes really crazy she'll pull off and choke a little,...
  2. Re: Baby sleeping through night, boobs did not get the memo.

    We co-sleep, but she's in a co-sleeper attached to our bed (daddy is a wild sleeper and worries about injuring her--and rightly so!), so night feeding still takes some lifting and shifting. And I...
  3. Baby sleeping through night, boobs did not get the memo.

    My almost 4 month old is now sleeping through the night pretty much every night (except when teething pain wakes her up), and has been pretty consistently for at least three weeks now.

    Everyone...

    Re: Please help I want to quit.

    Hahah, during my first two weeks of bfing, I was totally convinced that my daughter's first word was going to be one of the many colorful variants of the eff word that busted through my mouth every...

    Re: Please help I want to quit.

    I absolutely have been exactly where you are. I would literally cry out in pain while nursing my daughter, and spent pretty much the first two weeks of her life sobbing. The pain was so severe that...

    Re: Doctor wants me to start bottles

    I totally respect the desire to nurse from the breast exclusively, but I also don't think a doctor recommending a bottle is a dealbreaker, personally (although in this case I'm with you guys that the...
  7. Re: Nipple laceration that will not heal

    I tried that when I had a deep crack early on. The suction just made it squirt blood out in a jet. That was kind of scary to see through my flange!

    Re: Mad Baby & Over Supply

    Yeah, when it's really bad, use a cloth diaper or something and put pressure around the areola. Getting some of that pressure off will stem the spraying issues and soften up the nipple, both of...

    Re: OALD and low supply?

    Is there a chance the nipples on the bottles you're giving him are flowing too fast? Maybe he's just a lazy eater on the breast because he got used to the ease of a bottle very early on? Or maybe...
  10. Re: Catching OALD spray in bottle or pump after feeding?

    It's also good for when I do come up a little short on my pumps, I can add a half oz or so of the letdown milk and we're good to go.
  11. Re: Catching OALD spray in bottle or pump after feeding?

    I'm not too worried about it because by the time I will need to bust into my freezer stash, I think, I will need stuff to mix with rice cereal and whatnot. Right now, she eats two bottles while I'm...

    Re: Green Stool

    As far as saving all that extra milk goes, do what I did... I'm also a one sided feeder with OS and OALD, so I got a Milk Saver (http://www.mymilkies.com/). I wear it on the side I'm not nursing on...

    Re: Production gone ape!

    I pumped 5.5 oz out of one side yesterday and that was from a boob that felt like it was going to explode. Maybe it's because I'm a bit smaller on top, but I can't even imagine being able to hold 10...

    Re: Production gone ape!

    Whoa, TEN? I have no right to complain! Did your body not get the memo that you only had one baby, and not, like, a litter?

    The huz brought my wee one to nurse on my lunch break, and that really...

    Production gone ape!

    I've always had an issue with oversupply, but things had leveled off quite nicely over the past few weeks, and for over a month now I've been doing really well with one-sided feeding with my 10 wk...
  17. Re: If I have plenty of fresh, do I toss the frozen?

    Unfortunately no, we don't have a deep freezer, so after 4 months or so, I'm told this stuff is kaput.
  18. If I have plenty of fresh, do I toss the frozen?

    I've read that fresh pumped breastmilk is nutritionally superior to that which has previously been frozen. So, if I have plenty of fresh breastmilk, do I toss milk in my freezer stash once it...

    Re: How much is too much?

    I know that my daughter would really miss the comfort sucking at the end of real nursing when she ate from a bottle given by her daddy. So we made it a practice to give her her 4 oz bottle, and then...

    Oh, and while the Lansinoh pump doesn't come with a fancy bag to tote it around in, I found that one of the many fancy Enfamil sample bags I got works really well for toting around my pump. You...

    I use the Lansinoh Double Electric pump as well. It was affordable because I used a 15% off coupon and applied for a Babies R Us credit card and got an extra 10% off the already competitive price...

    Yeah, day four of pumping at work, and this time my morning pump only yielded 2.5 oz. It's getting worse and worse. I'm going to have to start adding an evening pump or figuring out how to pump two...
