    Hmmm... Never really thought of putting breast milk up MY nose, but I have put it up DS's!

    I've taken Tylenol Sinus and been just fine. Be sure to drink plenty of water too, as pp's said. That...

    Re: Depression

    :hello
    When I decided to start back on my zoloft, I checked with my OB first. I didn't really have a GP at the time, so he was my solution. Plus he had told me at the beginning of my pregnancy...

  4. Re: Yes it's me again, asking yet another ?

    When I first went back to work I would really try to mimic his eating schedule with my pumping. Here's my typical schedule:

    7:00 bf before leaving for work
    9:00 pump
    11:30 I went to nurse him...

    Re: So...How was it?

    I went back 10 weeks PP, and it was rough, but got a little better each day. I cried all the way from daycare to work! :cry I was lucky in that I could leave to go nurse Riley at lunch, which...

    :hug :hug Big hugs to you! I remember those days just like they were yesterday! Try to keep in mind that this will get better. Those early days are the hardest. The pp's have said pretty much...
  7. Re: Please help! Baby fusses big time after each feeding!

    Riley was fussy in the late evening too. It really is completely normal.

    With gas problems we tried: Mylicon drops, swaddling, laying him with his belly to my chest, or even tried a heating pad...

    Re: my baby is hardly ever happy!

    I know it's hard, but try to relax. Riley was this same way at this age. He just cried and fussed all the time, unless he was nursing. We tried everything, we were even convinced at one point that...

    Re: Trying to help a friend (long)

    Thanks for all the suggestions. I've pretty much decided to follow her lead. If she wants to talk about it we will, but I'm not going to push her. If we do talk about it, I'll definitely mention...

    Re: How do I get LO to take more hindmilk?

    As they get older, their suction gets stronger. They can get more milk out in less time. So I wouldn't really worry about how long you lo is nursing. Just watch the diaper output, as well as her...
  12. Re: way to make breastmilk more filling and satisfying?

    How many ounces is he taking at a time? Around 5-6 weeks there is a growth spurt, which could cause him to want to eat more.

    Whatever you are eating is going into your milk, helping to enrich...

    Re: 4-Day Rule and Juice

    We haven't used juice at all, so I'm afraid I won't be much help. But on the whole I would say when you try something new, wait at least 3 days before trying anything else new. Just so that you'll...

    Re: Ouch! Biting pain!

    Riley does a lot of biting when he's teething. Last night he was nursing away just fine, then all of a sudden, OW! :eek: He's never bit me that hard before. I'm still a little sore today.

  19. Re: baby falls asleep at the breast & stops sucking

    Riley did the same thing when he was itty bitty! We tried changing his diaper, using a wet wipe, etc. We also (I know this sounds bad) would thump his feet sometimes. The thumping worked, and so...

    Re: what can I store breastmilk in? help!

    I use the lansinoh bags, which will work great in the freezer too. Just make sure that all the air is out. I sometimes have trouble finding them at walmart, but most of the time they have them.

    Riley used to arch his back and cry a lot at the beginning too. We were convinced it was "colic", but I think really he was just very hungry and gassy at the same time. Mylicon was a lifesaver! ...
