    My DD is 7 months old. I have always had issues with supply. I see an LC and take fenugreek,...

    Is it too late????

    My DD is 7 months old. I have always had issues with supply. I see an LC and take fenugreek, blessed thistle and domperidone. My supply seems to be tanking.

    Re: Why can't I pump??

    I don't know about the original poster but I ended up ordering larger flanges from Ameda and yes they are more comfy but I get better results with the 30.5mm.

    The nice thing is, you COULD order...

    Re: Why can't I pump??

    I bought the Lansinoh which is the same as the APY and I think its a bunch of crap. It doesn't work for me either. I rent the Ameda hospital pump from my LC but with what I am paying for it every 3...

    Gagging!

    I have corrected my latch but after almost 3 months of an incorrect latch, my breast gags my baby. Is there any hope now that she has been 'trained' the wrong way?

    Also, I would guess that's...
  7. Re: h1n1 shot...are you getting it while breastfeeding?

    DH and I both got it yesterday. He works on a college campus and I am a dental hygienist. We have an 11 week old so we thought it would be more of a risk for us not to get it.

    I also got the...

  9. Re: Help Please! Tell me I don't have to dump it out!!!

    So even if she has already drank some, I can still safely give it to her? I thought I heard that once a baby drinks out of the bottle you are to discard it if they don't finish it.

    Just as long...
  10. Help Please! Tell me I don't have to dump it out!!!

    I am already having supply issues. I knew that I should have divided the milk into 2 oz portions but I just used some stored milk (my last) to feed DD and she took all except an oz of milk. Can I...

    Re: Mother's Milk Tea?

    I drink MMT and I find that it does help. I boil 32 oz water and steep 4 bags for 15 minutes. I mix with 1/4 cup sugar and drink cold. I think its yummy! I do 3-8oz cups per day.

    Re: 7 week old...is it almost over???

    Proud to say I nursed A LOT yesterday and took a hot shower then pumped. I got almost a full 2 oz in 15 minutes.

    I know this doesnt sound like much but this is the most I have pumped since...

    Re: 7 week old...is it almost over???

    She is having plenty wet diapers-probably 8-10+. She doesn't poop daily though. At first she was. Yesterday she had two blowouts after not pooping for 3 days.

    Re: 7 week old...is it almost over???

    I will admit I'm not pumping as often as I was in the hospital. I don't even do it every day. Initially I was pumping after every feeding but now my baby is a little spoiled and won't really let me...

    Re: Fenugreek and diarrhea :(

    The very first time I drank the Mother's Milk Tea, I got really bad diarrhea. But that was just the first time. I don't have a problem with it anymore.

    Feeling Tickles????

    This could sound silly but after 10-15 minutes of nursing my breast tingles or tickles as if something is crawling down. Is this let down?

    Before it would be so annoying I would pull her off. Now...

    She was jaundiced and had to stay in the hospital after we came home. They started her on the formula while I was away. Then the next day, she seemed to be confused at first but then got the hang...
  23. Re: Advice on breastfeeding after caesarean section

    That's exactly what I did. My milk came in after 2 days as well. I had DH go home and get my pump so the LC could show me how to use it but while I was there, I used the hospital pump, the Ameda. ...

    Re: Was Tempted To Give Up But....

    Thanks for the advice.

    BTW: How long should she feed from one breast? I am letting her nurse herself to sleep which usually takes about 20 minutes. Should I offer the other?

    Re: Was Tempted To Give Up But....

    That's the thing. She does seem to be uncomfortable when she is grunting. She turns red.

    I noticed last night, I offered her a formula bottle. After drinking just a little, I tried to burp her...
