  3. Re: 35 week preemie not getting enough at breast

    That is weird about the discontinue...I see them all over the place! I just looked them up and you can get them at amazon.com for a pretty good price too if you can't find them locally.

  4. Re: 35 week preemie not getting enough at breast

    Hi mama. Congrats on your baby! What you are experiencing is rather normal for a preemie. (I know that's probably what you didn't want to hear!) It took us until around our due date to get the hang...

    Re: Constipated

    Nolan was like this a few times when he was really young. I did the Dr Sears bath trick, and then if that didn't work I went for prunes. He never got to the point where he was completely constipated...

  16. Re: Could Use Some Feedback--Overwhelmed!

    Hi mama. :welcome and congrats on your LO!

    Re: Help for a friend

    I asked her about that. She said she is showing signs but nothing has popped through yet. I think the weirdest thing for her is it is not constant. I would think if it was teeth she would be fussy...

    Re: Help for a friend

    She says no period back yet and she doesn't have any signs that it is coming back. She was not engorged at all, she just felt like there was no milk.

    Re: areola pain?lipstick nipple?

    If you are having lipstick nipple you are probably having vasospasm. It feels just like thrush but is from the blanching on your nipple.

  24. Re: Bruise on areola - using arnica OK?

    I would not use arnica cream or salve on the breast because not only is it not ok to ingest (baby), but you also don't want to use it on broken skin, and you may have some slight cracks that you...
