  1. Re: EXTREME nipple pain.....help!!!!!!!

    Could it be thrush? I thought that could cause nipple pain if a cut was caused by a bad latch or a scrape from baby teeth. I had pain like this a couple of months ago and put the "MotherLove" thrush...

    Re: I guess my body is finished?

    I'm sorry to hear about your frustrations, that is a terrible policy to throw out breastmilk right away! I haven't seen such advice anywhere. :confused: Could you print out CDC and WHO guidelines...
  3. Re: Return to work - not keeping up with baby

    hw, I got pressure from the caregivers around that same age to give my LO more milk even though he had (slowly) started solids around 7 mo. I guess he was acting like he still wanted more after each...

    Re: Hindmilk or Allergy issue

    Also, you mentioned this started two weeks ago. Is there anything else that changed at that time?

    Re: Hindmilk or Allergy issue

    Hi, sorry to hear about your issues, and you are awesome for keeping up the EP 8x a day! :bow I know it's tough. My LO had weight gain issues as well in the early stages. How old is your LO? Sounds...

    Re: First birthday!

    Woohoo!!! :hb to your LO - congratulations and great job! :thumbsup
  8. Re: Longest milk can be stored in a cooler during travel?

    Thanks everyone for your feedback and encouragement! Good to hear it might be fine since it was still cool.

    I hadn't thought of trying/smelling it. Is it weird that I've never tried my own milk? I...

    Re: Pumping Unevenly?

    So you always had even production on both sides when you pumped for the first two?

    I always seem to pump more from the left side. I agree with aprilsmagic that getting your LO to nurse more on...

    Re: best manual hand pump?

    I normally use the Medela Freestyle (double-electric) but have had the Harmony manual pump as a backup - it has worked just fine for me for occasional use. :)
  11. Longest milk can be stored in a cooler during travel?

    Hi ladies,

    My LO is 11.5 mo old now, and I recently returned from a business trip to Asia and pumped while there. (Hallelujah - made it through being away for a week, and he's still nursing!!) I...
  12. Re: Nursing baby to sleep/how to get her to settle at night

    Great to hear! :D Hope the trend continues ... :thumbsup
  13. Re: Possible plugged duct? Also-Baby sleepy from shots?

    Hope you and your LO are both feeling better today, mommylove!



    I just have to say that this is almost EXACTLY what happened with us. I was barely getting breastfeeding figured out at the 8 wk...

  15. Re: Possible plugged duct? Also-Baby sleepy from shots?

    Happy to help! :)

    And don't be sorry, I think when it comes to clearing those ducts, you've got to do what you've got to do! If my LO was really refusing to nurse and it had been hours and I had...
  16. Re: Breastfeeding twins, how else can I increase production?

    Wow, I'm impressed with all you've been able to do with twins! Great job! :thumbsup
    With the advice of my IBCLC, I took herbal galactagogues to increase supply in the early months. This is what I...

    Re: LO wont take my right breast?

    Ah!! Interesting! Maybe she wants to nurse for comfort because of the teething - but because there's a lot more milk on the right side, she rejects it and goes for the left. Just a theory??...

    Also - phi mentioned some other possibilities - teething or a possible ear infection, is your LO acting sick at all?

    Re: LO wont take my right breast?

    Ah! How funny, opposite problem!! :lol Maybe it is an issue with oversupply or overactive letdown on that side? I have no experience with either, so perhaps others can comment on that, or suggest...
  20. Re: 6 weeks & struggling - poor latch, tongue tie *LONG*

    I'm late to this thread - but just wanted to say I'm super amazed and impressed with what a great job you are doing! You are awesome! :cheer

    I had a really rough time with sore nipples, poor...
  21. Re: Green poop and slow growth when we reduce supplemental E

    That is great to hear, mama! You've already gotten such awesome advice here, but I just wanted to say our LO had probs with weight gain, too, and perhaps for similar reasons - and to echo lllmeg, it...
  22. Re: Possible plugged duct? Also-Baby sleepy from shots?

    I think the shots can definitely make baby sleepy - same thing happened with our LO's 8-wk shots. They sucked, I know how you feel! It's a good idea to keep an eye on him to make sure nothing else is...
  23. Re: Nursing baby to sleep/how to get her to settle at night

    In the early days/weeks, before our LO nursed to sleep at night (or before we knew that we SHOULD be trying to nurse him to sleep at night! :o), I did a final feeding until late in the evening, 10...

    Re: LO wont take my right breast?

    I have the SAME issue with my LO and he is 9+ mo. It seems worse as he has gotten older, and only tricking him will get him to nurse a little longer on that side. He'll usually start off OK but then...

    Re: Dieting & breastfeeding??!

    Good to know, proverbs.wife! Thanks for confirming ... I've also heard that breastfeeding burns about 400-500 cals a day.
