    Re: Heartbroken, about to quit BF

    Fantastic! Also remember the growth curve may be the one that's for all babies, rather than the one used for exclusively bf babies who are leaner. It's true that your DD may be wired to be petite. ...
  3. Re: Is this thrush? Pediatrician isn't sure

    I have Raynaud's phenomena which spread to the nipples when I began bfing. A piping hot cup of a bfing-safe infusion like rosehip might help. If you aren't sure, just try drinking piping hot water...

    Re: fastest way to up my milk supply!!

    Also think about safe co-sleeping so LO can get in calories at night, it will up your supply, and you will need to pump less while still being well-rested.

    Re: Dang it Fenugreek!

    Have you tried safe co-sleeping? It's associated with improved supply, and less need for pumping. Prolactin hormone production peaks overnight (that's why we have the most milk in the morning) and...
