    Re: i need help!! im not allowed to nurse!

    Ugh. I seriously think at that point I would sign myself out, against medical advice and try to find another place. I'm not sure what kind of grounds they'd have for calling cps, but I know how...

    Re: Nursing as a birth control method?

    We use condoms when we have time to be intimate... which we don't have much of lately...

    And just to chime in on how "long" it works:

    With my first I did not get my period until the week of...

    Re: i need help!! im not allowed to nurse!

    I feel you on the frustration. When I had my nerve blocks they told me to pump and dump for five days. FIVE.

    I tried, but my frozen milk was bad -- not so much bad as just soapy tasting. I...

    Good. If they don't want to answer your question, find your local LLL Leader and have her call; they specifically state that they are there for nurses, doctors, midwives, and LLL to call to get...

    According to his post, it is penicillin based. But if you are allergic, I would certainly request a different med!

    This suggests that it is usually avoided in those who have known penicillin...

    Also, I'm not sure where the incision is, but have you considered hand expression? You might have a better time of clearing the milk out of that side by hand because you can be carefuller around the...

    Keep in mind I'm not a doctor, and I am just summarizing the threads so you get an idea of what they are talking about. You should read the threads yourself as well, and I would call that 800 number...

    Re: Won't take a bottle..

    I tried the breast flow ones with my daughter too. Those are the ones with an interior and exterior nipple, right? Those things were a huge PITA.

    Aww, thank you.

    I have a nephew going through similar issues -- custody fight between mom and dad. I hear constantly about how the other parent refuses to take into consideration the child's norm...

    He has been getting up on his hands and knees and rocking more and more.

    And that boy absolutely *adores* his bouncer. He will jump / sort of swing in it for hours until he passes out in it or...

    Re: Won't take a bottle..

    It's somewhat wasteful in that you have to ditch the liners, but I've tried just about every bottle out there except Dr. Browns and both of my kids seem to prefer the playtex drop ins. I believe...
  13. Re: Need reference material for docs...

    I might switch to another at the practice. I kind of like where we are going; they're associated with a medical college and I've heard lots of good about the system as a whole. But with all things,...

    Re: Judge Threatens to give baby Formula

    I'm in Michigan as well. If you are nearby, I'd consider donating some milk for you. As it is my boy is not eating his night bottle all that often... instead of leaving it out (we leave the milk...

    Re: Not enough milk for my sweet pea

    Definitely pump for 15 minutes if you can. Also, if you could add the session just before you go to bed that would help. If you can't do before bed, perhaps adding one in the early morning would be...

    Re: He just won't open wide!

    I squeeze my breast either in a 'U' or a 'C', depending on how he is laying. I was told to squeeze so that your fingers are parallel to baby's lips.

    When he opens as wide as I can seem to get...

    We don't force it on him; we let him eat however much he wants. He only takes about 20ish minutes. When he refuses we call it good. I don't understand how in this respect this should be any...
