    Re: When did your cycle become regular again?

    Hi :)
    Now this one is going to sound pretty flaky, however I wonder if your cycle is out of sorts as your DH is not around at the moment. Your body knows that it can't conceive, therefore it is...

  9. Re: bad latch, low supply, really struggling - help!

    Good for you for getting help.

    I was wondering if baby takes the EBM (or formula) happily lying down in the bf position, or if this is a struggle also?

    Glad to hear things are starting to settle down. I am sure there is a forum on here for reflux babies also. The main thing to remember with a reflux baby is "handle with care". Try to always have her...
