  1. Re: Please help we are 19 months & my supply is dwindling :(

    2 oz often isn't enough for naptime, I have been taking a lot of fenugreek and got it to 2.5. Hopefully I can get it back to 3 oz or so...

    Is it OK to add like .5 oz of water to my milk?

  3. Re: Weaning Help!? My 26 month old thinks I'm a human pacifi

    I was like you as well, OMG I thought I was going to die I was so sleep deprived. LO was waking to nurse every 2 hrs and wouldn't go back to sleep unless I was rocking her and she had the breast.

  4. Re: To Pump Wean or Not to Pump Wean? When were you ready?

    I think I will tell our nanny she doesn't have to give milk anymore throughout the day and can just try rocking her to sleep. Now I know she doesn't need it as she is for sure getting enough when we...
  5. Re: To Pump Wean or Not to Pump Wean? When were you ready?

    thanks everyone- my only concern is that my LO still sometimes needs two bottles if she naps twice. I think I will wait til she goes to one nap and then go to one session. If you don't pump or...

    Hi Mums,

    We're at 16 months now and I returned to work at 6.6 months so I am now about 10 months of pumping. I sorta thought by now I'd be pump weaning but I still pump at 11 am and again around...

    Re: Sudden Nipple Pain

    There is a little part right on the tip of the nipple that looks open, sort of like a scrape. That is what is hurting me, if I touch it it's really sore. What can I put on it to heal it fast?

    I...

    Re: Nutritional Deficiencies in Mama

    Thanks everyone, I wasn't even thinking thyroid problem AND my Mum is hypothyroid. I am tired too, but just figured it was due to lack of sleep. I am going this week to get checked out.

    Re: Nutritional Deficiencies in Mama

    no LLL league here I am afraid (I live on an island) but I guess I need to make an apt with my dr. Is it primarily blood tests I should be getting done?

    Really? That explains a lot! I eat like crazy too. Thanks for this insight.
  16. Re: Advice on how much milk my 1 YO need

    thanks everyone for the words of encouragement.

    I added in two more pump sessions (5 total) and got 12 ounces today, LO only took 7 ounces - we cut out the milk at meal times and she napped with a...
  17. Re: Advice on how much milk my 1 YO need

    What kinds of milk are my choices for supplementing at meal times? My LO has bad allergies, so I should probably do some skin tests. I have tried her with a little almond milk in her cereal and she...
  18. Re: Advice on how much milk my 1 YO need

    thanks ladies, I guess I keep thinking its gotta be all BM. The idea of other milk, especially at meal times (she eats a lot of solids BTW) shouldn't be too scary I know.

    I just don't feel...

  21. Re: Getting 6 month old used to a bottle before starting daycare

    About the bottle thing...did you try playtex drop ins with the natural latch latex nipple yet? I tried about 4 others, before finding this one and it worked.

    I also realized too that my LO...
  22. Re: Returning to Work next week and I am panicked!

    Just to update I have been training my new nanny since Tuesday. She is fabulous! I actually ended up not hiring the one with all the experience as she didn't produce references for me. I hired the...
  23. Re: Returning to Work next week and I am panicked!

    hi all, I am in the caribbean and no we don't have any laws here for BF mothers sadly- at least none I can find reference to. I love to get some BF advocacy going here! And a LLL too, we need that...
