    Re: Sleepless nights

    Another thought: could baby be teething? My son got his first tooth at 4 months but was teething (excessive drooling, chewing on everything, etc) about a month before. As an early teether his sleep...

    Re: Pumping at Work

    Agree with PP. If you still think you need more, you could try pumping after the 6:45 feed, even if only for a few minutes (getting everyone and everything ready for work is chaotic!). I pump after...

    Re: Starting Back to Work TOMORROW!

    I feel you here. I'm also returning to work next week and DD will be 12 weeks. We are doing 2 part time days this week to get her used to day care. Yesterday went ok except that she's not keen on the...

    New pump?

    I'm starting back to work next week full time and will be pumping. I have a Medela double electric pump (like the PIS but the basic one the WIC office gave me) from baby #1. I was hoping with the new...

    Re: Pumping Pain

    I'm not an expert but do try the larger shields, 27 mm. That's what I use. You don't want any part of the nipple to touch the shields when it's drawn up. 20 minutes is a bit much. Perhaps cut back...

    Re: 2 under 2? How To Cope?

    I can also relate. I have a 7 week old and a 3 year old. The baby nurses every hour and my toddler has been acting out to get attention. It's very difficult and I struggle every day. Sometimes my mom...

    Re: Mastitis, healing fissures

    I also wanted to add that if you are still having pain after so many days of GV then it's probably a latch issue. You may want to have your LC reevaluate the latch and basic techniques. It may take...

    Re: Mastitis, healing fissures

    My LC said I could use the APNO for 2 weeks. With my first, however, I used it daily for about 6 months because I had a crack on one side that just wouldn't heal, even after seeing a dermatologist...

    Re: Nursing pillow for petite mom?

    I second the My Breast Friend pillow. I loved mine, especially the fact the the pillow is flat on the top so baby is not rolling towards you while nursing. I even carted mine around with me until DS...

    Re: Breastfeeding After Tongue Tie

    Sorry to hear about your difficulties. Both my 2 babies had a TT. With DS, his was corrected at 9 days but not before I had cracked nipples and mastitis. His latch continued to be shallow and...
  12. Re: Thrush--how long to continue prevention methods?

    Something else you can try that one of the OBs I saw suggested is to rinse your nipples with vinegar solution (1 part water, 1 part white vinegar, I think) after each feeding. Since you're treating...
  13. Re: How to adjust to baby sleeping longer at night

    Agree with PPs. Don't wake yourself to pump! Enjoy the sleep (you'll need it). Also, as babies get older, they become more effective at nursing. So, while he may not nurse as frequently at night,...

    Re: Blocked duct questions

    Agree with PP about suggestions. I had lots of plugs when I was bfing. Try keeping a heat pack (not too hot) on the breast all the time. Heat will do a lot to help with a plug. You might also try...

    Re: Mastitis without a clogged duct?

    I had something similar the past few months--I went back to work full time in late Aug, and was nursing less; DS was 14.5 months and only attached to night nursing. With nursing less, every few...

    Re: Sore breast

    Bummer, I just posted again a few minutes ago....mine seems to be some kind of inflammation with the ducts or maybe a blocked duct buried deep inside the breast. Not happy about it whatever it is. ...

    I seem to keep getting mastitis in one breast (have had it twice in the past few months). Again today I woke to a very full feeling breast, almost painful (skipped a nursing yesterday and LO, 15...

    Re: Plugged ducts again...painful

    Turns out it wasn't a plugged duct; breast was not full or hard to the touch, was still soft/floppy, but was very painful on the side with redness that started to spread. Talked to my Dr; we both...

    Last night I woke up at 2 am with a very painful breast (left). A small area on the side of the breast is very painful, but not red, and the area is not hard as I've experienced with previous...
  21. Re: Need some sleep - - how would benedryl affect supply?

    Agree with above advice--get out and expose yourself to sunshine and exercise. Taking your LO on a walk or to the park will help with this. If she's anything like mine, she will keep you busy and...

    Re: Sore nipples!!

    Could be a sign of ovulation. My nipples hurt during this time--feels almost like they're bruised. Lasts for a few days. Ugh...experiencing it right now.
  23. Re: Need some sleep - - how would benedryl affect supply?

    Hi, mama. First of all, I am NOT a doctor; this is just my own personal experience, so you may want to check with your health care provider before starting any kind of routine use of a medicine.
