    Engorgement and tongue tie

    Hi, my second son is three days old and I had his tongue tie released yesterday. My milk also came in yesterday and I am very very engorged. I've been nursing as often as possible and he seems to...

    Worried about milk intake

    Hi everyone,

    This was the first weekend that I didn't "offer" breast proactively and waited for my 1 year old son to ask. He nursed about 3-5 times/day over the weekend. He loves solids and will...

    Re: Nursing before bed

    Thanks. This is really helpful. I guess actually my son is doing the same thing as your baby. He doesn't typically fall asleep at the breast before bed anymore. He likes to nurse and he's usually...

    Re: Nursing before bed

    So what do you do before bed? Just dinner then? Maybe some milk or water with dinner?

    Re: Nursing before bed

    Thanks, mamas. He actually doesn't like to share our bed- he likes spreading out and moving around too much. I do love that night time nursing before bed. I will just try to relax and when I'm ready,...

    Re: Nursing before bed

    You're totally right. I do tend to over plan :)

    I'm going to see what happens over the next few months. I don't want to force weaning but for those moms who are ready to wean before the baby, I'm...

    Re: Nursing before bed

    I think in the next few months I will be ready to wean gradually. I will be sad about it but I am ready. And I think he will be too. I guess I don't want to rely on nursing every night when I know...

    Re: Nursing before bed

    Thanks. I think we will start when he's a year. Just trying to get him used to other things before bed. I know it will be rough.

    What do you do when the baby is sick and gets up at night? Nurse?...

    Nursing before bed

    Hi mamas, my wonderful son will be 1 in two weeks and our bedtime routine has always involved a bath and nursing in bed before he gets transferred to the crib. He will sometimes want to nurse for 45...
  10. Re: Nursing less and confused about what to do!

    Thanks again! One last question: if I do completely stop pumping during the week while I'm at work but my son may want to nurse on the weekends during the day, will I have milk for him when he wants...
  11. Re: Nursing less and confused about what to do!

    Thanks so much for your help. This is really helpful advice. It's weird how freaked out I am about pump weaning- I can't imagine not producing milk since it's been such a big part of my life for the...
  12. Nursing less and confused about what to do!

    Hi mamas, I am grateful and blessed to have nursed my son for almost a year. We've gone through so many challenges (tongue tie, reflux, vasospasms) that I can't believe we've made it this far.

    My...

    Engorgement

    Hi everyone, I'm on my first business trip away from my son and am feeling very very uncomfortable and full. I used to have terrible oversupply, which was finally under control. I've only been away...

    Re: Milk drinking decreasing

    It's still not as easy to breastfeed him as it used to be. He would want to be attached to the boob forever when he was smaller. Now, I have to basically "force" him :) He doesn't really demand it so...

    Re: Anyone else have "mommy hand" ?

    The only thing that helped me (and this was after a month of not using my hand) was getting cortisone shots. Both my hands got immediately better.

    Milk drinking decreasing

    Hi moms,

    We've been happily breastfeeding for 9 months after a rough first two months. My son has been on solids since he was 6 months old. I leave 12 ounces of milk for my babysitter and he...

    Period??

    Hi all, we are still breastfeeding strong at 9 months. I haven't noticed that my supply has dipped but I think my period is coming back. I'm still able to pump more than enough milk when I'm at work....
  19. Re: How much milk should I leave while I'm at work?

    I started with three 3 ounce bottles (I am gone from 8:30a-6p). Then after a few weeks, we went up to three 4 ounce bottles. Sometimes I will leave an ounce or two extra if I have leftovers after...

    Re: Enough milk and nighttime feedings?

    True. This is tiring and this string is pretty timely because my son has gotten up twice already since 7 pm and I can already tell it's going to be a long night. So for parents whose babies are...

    Hi there, my son also had silent reflux so I sympathize. Your daughter is about 4 months, which for ms was when my son started becoming more distracted and less into nursing. I would nurse in the...

    Re: Enough milk and nighttime feedings?

    That made me laugh too.

    My baby sleeps in our room and it's so much easier to nurse him back to sleep. Even if he doesn't sleep right away I at least feel good that he's not hungry or thirsty.

    Re: Enough milk and nighttime feedings?

    Thanks so much. I know that the moms in my neighborhood are obsessed with these long stretches of sleep at night. I worry that he isn't sleeping enough at night with his waking up. He takes about...
