  1. Re: This scotch drinker is a little tired of wine.

    True. It's a hassle to express a bottle (I hand express) and half the time she won't take it, so that's why I say it might not be worth it.
  2. Re: This scotch drinker is a little tired of wine.

    Oh hmmm another thing I just thought of is that I would generally take way longer to drink a single scotch than a glass of wine, thus throwing off the whole schedule. It's possible it's just not...
  3. Re: This scotch drinker is a little tired of wine.

    Oh good point! The "would I drive" rule of thumb is the one I've been using, since I definitely do not feel one glass of wine even an hour after having it. What I usually do is have the one glass...
  4. This scotch drinker is a little tired of wine.

    I feel silly asking this question! I swear I am a good and responsible mom. :)

    About once a week, I have a glass of wine in the evening. I don't pump and dump or delay nursing, I'm quite...

    Re: Making purees

    I added breastmilk (before my daughter started wanting her food thick) with each serving - I just literally squirted a little into the bowl before I fed her. That way I could customize the...
  6. Re: Does Starting Solids=Return of Cycle & Low Supply??

    This is purely anecdotal, but my 7 month old has been on solids since 5 months and eats a TON of veggies, fruits and cereal - and I still have an oversupply, and still haven't gotten my period. ...
  7. Re: Less frequent nursing, green poop!

    Thank you everyone! The poop wasn't frothy, it was thicker than usual (which I was attributing to the solids.) But she's back to yellow-orange and liquidy. So all is well! I'm in fact quite...
  8. Less frequent nursing, green poop!

    In the last week my nearly six month old has gone from nursing every hour to nursing every 2-3 hours. This is normal and rather welcome even - but it has coincided with the arrival of some very...

    Re: Baby miserable - scratching face

    My 5 month old also rubs her eyes wildly - I usually take it as a sign that she's sleepy. Often I have to hold her arms still while she nurses and falls asleep.

    My husband thinks it's a teething...

    Re: Having a drink and nursing

    Purely anecdotal as to what I felt comfortable with and what my Dr. advised: I didn't drink at all before my daughter was 3 months, and now I have a half-glass of wine a couple of times a week. I...

    Re: Do I need a pump?

    I'm a bit late to the party here but I say wait and see if hand expressing works for you. My daughter takes 1-2 bottles a week and since I can hand express fairly well I didn't bother investing in a...

    Re: Wasting storage bags

    I express into a clean mixing bowl with a lid, which I store in the fridge through the day until I transfer it to a bottle. I hand express so I don't know if that would work with a pump?

    Re: Help!

    Oh, sorry! I mean what I was recommending (night boob/day boob) only works if you still nurse at night. I was confusing, I apologize! :)

    Re: Help!

    This only works if you still nurse at night, but I manage my OALD with designating a "day boob" and a "night boob". It sounds silly but it works! During the day, she gets the right one, and at...

    Re: Poop Question (sorry!)

    my baby had a similar problem at about 3 months, and we brought a poop sample into the doctor to get checked out, just in case. Everything was fine, and I suspect it's an overactive letdown issue. ...

    Thank you all so much for your responses! I am going to hold off on meds for the time being and see if therapy alone is enough, but it's good to hear from people who have had good experiences with...

    Zoloft and breastfeeding

    Am considering Zoloft as a treatment for postpartum anxiety, but I am wary. Anyone have experience with taking an SSRI and breastfeeding?
  18. Re: four month old arches back, very short feeds

    Thanks for the advice! She has had a couple of green poops but normally just the usual orangey-yellow ones, and she's not terribly gassy. Probably she is just easily distracted and prefers...

    Re: bottle

    We use the Adiri bottle, the medium flow one (as I have a forceful letdown so my baby is used to a faster flow). It hasn't interfered with nursing at all, and she usually will take it from my...
  20. four month old arches back, very short feeds

    I'm not sure if I'm actually having a breastfeeding problem or not!

    My four month old is gaining well (she's enormous, actually) and produces many wet diapers and at least two dirty diapers a day....
