    Re: Recurrent clogged nipple pore

    @nathansmum: So did you just take one big spoonful a day? I'm not sure how much to take. I was taking 4 1200 mg gel caps before, and a big scoop of the granules is supposedly 1500 mg, but I'd...

    Re: Recurrent clogged nipple pore

    Thanks for all the suggestions! I'm definitely willing to try anything and am not opposed to some kind of anti-bacterial-type solution on my nipples after pumping/nursing. That's a lot of ideas...

    Re: Recurrent clogged nipple pore

    One last question - did your baby sleep through the night? Were you able to without getting plugged, or do you think that contributed? I'm getting up and pumping right now to keep the milk flowing...

    Re: Recurrent clogged nipple pore

    That's interesting; I take the gel capsules. They also have raw form - do you think that would be better as well? Should I try the granules and raw form and see if they help? I wonder what the...
  5. Re: Need help weaning 3.5 month old

    When you talk about medicine being more permanent, do you mean permanent for this baby or permanent for any babies in the future? I don't want to jeopardize future nursing relationships with my...

    Re: Recurrent clogged nipple pore

    I had the lactation consultant look at my bra as well. I haven't been able to find a bra that I actually like yet so I'm still on the hunt. If anyone has any suggestions for a supportive,...
  7. Re: Need help weaning 3.5 month old

    And just reading that subject made me so depressed. 3.5 months is so young to wean. I'm so jealous of all of you moms who have been able to nurse and enjoy it. I keep thinking I'll get there soon....
  8. Need help weaning 3.5 month old

    I have had a miserable experience breastfeeding due to plugged ducts. As in, multiple plugged ducts a week. I've had over 30 in the last 10 weeks. I have tried EVERYthing I can to get them to...

    Re: Recurrent clogged nipple pore

    She looked at the flange sizes - I have two - and let me know which one she thought was better (the regular 24). She recommended only pumping about 10 minutes to relieve the fullness but not tell my...

    Re: Recurrent clogged nipple pore

    We went to the doctor Monday and they said she had a slight tongue tie and went ahead and clipped it. I can tell a difference in her nursing after that - she seems much quicker and more efficient. ...

    Re: Recurrent clogged nipple pore

    So I saw a LC on Saturday. She said her latch was pretty good and she was transferring milk well - got 6 oz while the LC was there (morning feeding). She did say it looks like she could have a...

    Re: Recurrent clogged nipple pore

    I can try to see another lactation consultant, but beyond that, any other suggestions? It's just so frustrating because I've been told she has a good latch, but this keeps on happening, and I just...

    Re: Recurrent clogged nipple pore

    Hmm.. I'm rarely engorged; only when she sleeps through the night after not doing it for awhile. I guess I've determined that I don't have an oversupply because it ALWAYS seems as if she wants more...

    Re: Recurrent clogged nipple pore

    Another thought - could we have thrush without knowing it and could that cause the recurrent clogged nipple pores? My nipples often look white, although that goes away after awhile. Her tongue is...

    Recurrent clogged nipple pore

    I've struggled with plugged ducts A TON. As in, I've had at LEAST 20 in the last 7 weeks. I am doing really good if I go 3 or 4 days without getting plugged. Often I'll get plugs in both sides...

    Long nursing sessions

    My baby is a little over 3 months (14 weeks), and on average each nursing session takes 40-50 minutes. 30 if I'm lucky. She's definitely a comfort nurser and I can tell it turns into that more...
