    Re: Baby won't transfer milk

    Someone with more knowledge of this will chime in soon I'm sure. However, I have heard that it can be helpful (though maybe counterintuitive) to bottlefeed first then offer the breast. The idea is...
  4. Re: Feeding takes forever - need advice

    You've gotten great advice.
    I wanted to add in my experience with eczema treatment.

  5. Re: So exhausted and need a place to vent

    I jumped at every sound too at first. It took me getting used to it, but this is different for everyone. I couldn't sleep at all if my dd (my first baby) wasn't next to me. I brought her in to bed...
  6. Re: Weaning, period, and stomach issues

    I agree with PP, you should probably see a doctor.
    However, for me, something about being pregnant removed my reaction to dairy. I'm lactose intolerant or sensitive or whatever. When not pregnant I...

    Re: Vent about annoying nursing habits

    My son has stopped scratching/pinching so much. :)
    Now he's doing this rhythmic squeezing thing with both hands one on either side of my breast. I feel like I'm being milked. Ha-ha! It's super funny...

    Re: Help

    I'm sure people can point you to a good formula.
    I was just wondering if you want to go? If so, I'm sure it will be fine. If not, do you have to? I've skipped things like this when baby is "too...

    It may be a mixture of mature milk and colostrum. This is healthy too. Not a problem for newborn. I recommend the book Adventures in adventures in Tandem Nursing. It was invaluable to me.

    Re: Feeling Full Soon After Pumping

    If you are pumping for comfort you want to be careful about pumping too much. Emptying your breast signals your body to make more. When you pump for 2-3 let downs your body thinks your baby is...
