  1. Re: sore nipples at 11 months? who do you see - LC or OB?

    Don't know if this helps - - sounded like good advice from PP. But just in case, I always have sore/extremely sensitive nipples when I ovulate for a few days. It's kind of surprising at first b/c...

    Re: Is this a clogged duct?

    Without any hardened areas in breast tissue, it really doesn't sound like clogged milk ducts. Maybe there is some other source of infection - - have you had a chance to talk to your doc/midwife?

    Re: Is this a clogged duct?

    Me again. I just re-read your post. Have you talked to YOUR ob/midwife person about your fever? I'd give them a call too. It's difficult in the early days after delivery to know if your just...

    Re: diaper rash already!

    Re: A question for a friend..

    Is your friend SURE her milk "hasn't come in"? With frequent feeds, it would be difficult to tell...her breasts wouldn't have time to get the hard, full feelings some moms get. Is the baby nursing...
  9. Re: PLEASE HELP!! Breasts not producing as much and they are very sore!

    As to the...sick and supply issue: Are you taking meds for your respiratory infection? Anything that "dries up" (like Sudafed & other cold medicines) can also "dry up" your milk supply. I'm not...

    Re: Need help....

    I agree. Wait...we started offering around 6-7 months. And continued offering "baby foods" (pureed fruits/veggies) once in a while (every weeks or so). DD is now 11+ months old and has just in the...

    Re: Milk gone bad?

    Fresh milk is fine at room temperature for 8 hours. I don't know that keeping it around for 5ish days would make a difference? If I had this question, I'd call the lactation consultant at our...

    Re: Travel

    What is your mode of travel? Car? Airplane?

    Without any more information, my best response is -- you'll just have to feed the baby as normal. Plan stops as needed. If air travel, it'll be easy...

    Re: supply and demand

    When you say that you wait "forever," how long is that? During the day, I wouldn't wait more than 3 hours, if that, to wake the baby to feed. It is hard work...with my DD (now 5 mo.), that was the...
  21. Re: not wanting to give up, but is she getting all she needs?
