    Re: Need Help with Weaning

    I agree it is entirely possible to nurse from just one breast. To make a long story short I had many issues with my left breast for some reason. My right breast has always produced much more (like...
  2. Re: A bottle a day....if I could start over again!!!

    Personally, I know that the main reason my first DD did not bf well is because I supplemented her with formula from the beginning. Our nursing relationship was over at 3 mos b/c it was just so darn...

    Re: replacing a feed, please help, desperate!

    If I can make a wild suggestion for you... I too had tons of nipple problems on my left side, starting when my DD was 4 mos old. It started with a cracked nipple, then it bled so much all the time...

    Re: Long Car Trip - Pumping Questions

    It will get easier! My DD (5 mos) screamed every time I lowered her into her car seat for the first 2 mos of her life-it was horrible and so tense for me and my 3 yo DD. We finally learned a trick...

    Re: High stress = nursing probs ???

    I think it probably depends on how the mother deals with stress. I have just gotten over a horrible bout of mastitis that came back after 3 weeks. I feel as though I've been sick since the end of...

    Re: when is water okay?

    I live in GA and my peds office recommends that you offer a bit of water if you're going to be out in the heat. My 5.5 mo old is so excited by other children at the park that she will refuse to...

    Re: One side over the other??

    My DD has always preferred the right side over the left and I've had several clogged ducts and mastitis twice on the left. I am now very careful to nurse her on the left even if she doesn't seem to...

    Re: Mastitis-AGAIN-Feeling Discouraged!

    Jolie,

    I hadn't been using lanolin for the longest time, as I was concerned about the thrush that kept coming back. I had been told to continue to use the Nystatin ointment for a few days after...

    I am currently BF my 5 month DD and have mastitis for the second time in 3 weeks. The first time I called our local LLL Leader for help (and to cry my eyes out at her over the phone). She asked...
