  1. Re: Need advice: Antibiotic reaction and temporarily using formula

    Thanks moms!

    Update: At my root canal today, the dentist said there was no sign of infection so I could discontinue the antibiotic. After less than 24-hours of using formula, I am a total...
  2. Re: Need advice: Antibiotic reaction and temporarily using formula

    I'm taking Clindamycin. Unfortunately, I myself am allergic to Penicillin, so that rules out a lot of options. I have taken Keflex before while nursing this kiddo and we both did fine, so I will try...
  3. Re: Need advice: Antibiotic reaction and temporarily using formula

    Thanks so much for the encouragement. I did talk to my ped about the reaction, and while hives aren't dangerous, they are a sign of an allergic reaction, and with antibiotics, that reaction can build...
  4. Need advice: Antibiotic reaction and temporarily using formula

    I am taking an antibiotic for a root canal I'm having in two days. The first time I nursed after taking it, my son broke out in hives all over his body. His peditrician says I can't keep nursing him...

    Re: Aches and pains!

    For the daytime, you might consider getting a nursing stool to raise your legs, or the free version of one (stacked phone books). Oddly, I've found it raises my LO to just the right height if I wear...

    Re: weening off nipple shields

    I too was given medela shields in the hospital due to very inverted nipples. My Lactation Consultant warned me to ween my son off them quickly because they cause supply issues. That being said, I've...
  7. Re: Supply drops after a bad cold; help!

    It's encouraging to hear that it's possible to wean LO from the nipple shield so late in the game. Mostly, I'm just annoyed at having to wash them all the time.

    I read some of the links and I'll...

    Re: HELP!! -->Post cold

    I posted this exact same question a few days ago, and was feeling quite panicked. My supply dropped drastically after I had a nasty cold. Everyone encouraged me to keep nursing, drink fluids and get...

    Re: fighting the breast

    My son is also 11 weeks, and since I have returned to work a few weeks ago, he also sometimes yells when offered the breast when I come home. Like your son, he doesn't protest middle of the night...

    Re: Cold

    I'm a FTM too and my 2-month old son and I are recovering from our first shared cold right now. I hope your kiddo escapes the bug, but if he doesn't, he is still likely to have much fewer symptoms...
  11. Re: Supply drops after a bad cold; help!

    I just wanted to report that after another difficult night, and a few more tears from baby and me, (but I resisted supplementing from the frozen store) I woke up bursting with milk. I've never been...
  12. Re: Supply drops after a bad cold; help!

    Thanks so much for the advice. I will absolutely stay in all weekend. Sounds nice, actually. I could use the rest.

    Thanks too for the support. It helped me just to hear that it's normal for this...
  13. Supply drops after a bad cold; help!

    I'm a FTM (and new to these forums) and my son is 11 weeks old. We've had a pretty good bf experience so far. I have inverted nipples, and I never successfully weaned him from the nipple shields used...
