    Re: Rejecting EBM

    If you haven't already, taste the milk you're offering? If it's got a soapy, metallic, or otherwise weird taste, you might have a lipase problem?

    I have the occasional batch of milk go bad, and...

    Re: nursing bras/tops

    Me too. I think I've got about 10, in 3 colors. I bought just one nursing bra, and I don't like it, but the tanks rock.

    Re: nipple shields = choking hazard?

    I thought ya'll might enjoy an update. My LO gave up his nipple shield pretty much cold turkey at 11.5 months, to my shock. Wish I had any clue what prompted it - I'd given up on getting rid of the...

    Re: Not complaining but...

    I'm not sure charting's going to be any good for pregnancy prevention, although it might let you know you'd ovulated, and if AF didn't turn up, you'd know to test. The TCOYF website and book are...

    Re: extended bf and daycare

    My 13 month old is in daycare from 9-5:30, 3 days a week, has been since 6 months. He generally drinks 2 or 3 bottles each with 3-4 oz of EBM in them, plus he'll drink a little bit of water or...

    Re: Okay to mostly feed on one breast??

    I nurse primarily on one breast. Not intentionally, but I have issues with one nipple (really weird, pretty much bifurcated), and my sling positions LO better for one side than the other, and I have...

    Re: nipple shields = choking hazard?

    I have one bifurcated nipple, but LO won't nurse on either side reliably without the nipple shield, even though the other side is fine.

    I ended up nursing LO with the nipple shield because he...

    Re: Number of BM's related to health?

    But ooooh boy, when they finally do have that BM, clear your schedule, it's HUGE.

    Re: nipple shields = choking hazard?

    I frequently find mine under my son's neck. In fact, I've started looking there first if I don't find it still on the boob.

    That's a good suggestion about the alarm - I'll have to see if I can...

    nipple shields = choking hazard?

    My 7 month old son will only nurse with a nipple shield. Around 5 months, I was able to get him to latch and nurse occasionally for a few minutes without it, but then he got two teeth, and my...

    Re: Trouble with let-down

    What about pumping on one side while you nurse on the other? That way the baby provides the letdown for you. (This, obviously, requires a baby who doesn't mind the whooshing of the pump on the...

    Lop-sided production - should I care?

    I posted this over on an existing thread and didn't get a response. Reposting here - I'd be interested in opinions from other folks who are lop-sided! :)



    I'm not proposing to quit nursing on...

    Re: Block-feedings

    I block fed for about a month. Switched back to switching breasts each feeding (mostly), although still one breast per feeding mostly, and I haven't seen green poo yet, so I think we've gotten it...

    Re: block feeding question

    Oh, this is so relevant to where I'm at.

    I'm in the same place (2-3x production on the left side), but I know exactly how it happened:
    - my sling makes it easier to nurse on the left when in...

    Re: Wearing a bra??

    Those are my favorite, too! I bought a couple of actual nursing shirts at first, but ended up just stocking up in camis in all three colors and wearing regular shirts over them, since I needed...

    Re: 2 month has green mucousy stools-help!

    Hi Tara,

    We went through the green poo, too. Definitely try the block feeding, what you're describing sure sounds like oversupply.

    I wasn't super organized about switching breasts exactly...

    Re: First time pumping - questions

    It sounds like you had no letdown the first time and a good one (or more) the second time. I have a similar experience with pumping - if I get a letdown, I get 3ish ounces from a reasonably full...

    Re: Hyper-lactation

    Have you considered the possibility that you've got overactive letdown (OALD)? See http://www.lalecheleague.org/NB/NBmilksupplyissues.html, and also the Oversupply forum. That would account for...
