    Re: Emergency infant feeding

  2. Re: Almost to the 2 year mark... :)

    Congratulations on two years of nursing! What a sweet milestone!
  3. Re: Leaving 10 mth old for three days, twice - milk?

    When my son bit while nursing, I unlatched him for a second. He made the connection between biting and no nursing pretty quickly. :p
  4. Re: Diminishing Pumping Output - 9 month old

    I ran into the same thing initially around 3 months, when my period returned, and used fenugreek after that during periods, which helped some, but around 9 months I hit the pumping wall. I changed...
  5. Re: Do I purchase a breast pump if I'm planning to breast fe

    If you will have access to a pump, and aren't going back to work soon, you'll likely be fine without a pump. I knew I would be going back to work, but didn't plan to start pumping immediately, until...

    Re: Pacifiers and BFing Newborns

    My son loved his pacifier, and breastfed well. We didn't intend for him to have a pacifier in the hospital, but he was given one, and because he was in special care before being discharged, he was...
  7. Re: PLEASE READ! Miscarriage, D&C today and BFing

    I am so sorry. I'm guessing you can nurse following the D&C (I've nursed following surgery with general anesthesia), but you may want to ask what medications will be used so you can double-check.
  8. Re: Cipro for UTI and breast feeding?

    I am going totally from memory, so definitely take this for what it's worth, but I remember not being able to take Cipro while I was nursing. You might try infantrisk.com to find out for sure...

    Re: how to handle critisizm after yr

    I think still.here is exactly right; there's a ton of information available if it's worth the time it takes to find it and share it. For me, the idea of someone telling me what my baby will or won't...

    Re: STTN and Formula fed vs BF babies

    I actually think there is something to be said for waiting a bit to see if they settle. With Thomas we would wait to see if he was essentially talking in his sleep, and not really awake/hungry/etc,...

    Re: Breastfeeding at work

    Other people may have different suggestions, but personally I would not explain; you're not doing anything wrong, and I'm assuming your supervisor is ok with how you're managing your time. If your...
  12. Re: Nearly Continuous Feeding of 1 week old

    It sounds like he is doing just fine. :) Realistically, you can expect it to be this way for several more weeks, so reload your snacks and have a few extra books on hand, and enjoy!
  13. Re: 4 1/2 month old not gaining weight. Ped concerned!!

    I would strongly advise against exclusively pumping--it won't give you an accurate measure of what your baby is getting when he nurses, and your baby will do a much better job of boosting/maintaining...
  14. Re: Is it safe to warm breast milk in a warmer??

    We used one too--I may be wrong! I know no microwaving, but now I think I may be off about the warmer.
  15. Re: Is it safe to warm breast milk in a warmer??

    It's been a long time, but I think you're right.
  16. Re: In-laws trying to give junk food to baby rant

    I agree that it's great if your husband is willing to talk to them, but if he isn't, or it's going to cause undue tension between the two of you, I'd just tell them myself (not without letting him...

    Re: What word do you use for nursing?

    We used "nurse"/"nursing"/"milk". And "breasts"--but that's mainly because I'm not really a nickname person, so "boobs" or "boobies" didn't work for me.

    Re: 3 days old afraid he's starving

    I think that's right--I meant to look at kellymom and post the recommended number and forgot. :o

    ETA: I couldn't find it on the kellymom site, but found this from that site, quoted somewhere else:...

    Re: 3 days old afraid he's starving

    :ita
    You can also count wet and dirty diapers to reassure yourself that he's getting enough. If it's coming out, it's going in. :)
  20. Re: Thinking about weaning, but not very happy about it

    Did I misread, or did you mean 4 16 oz bottles? (I'm guessing you meant 4 4oz bottles?)
  21. Re: Thumbsucking interfering with hunger cues?

    My son did a similar thing around the same age, but it didn't interfere with nursing (except his frustration that he couldn't figure out how to get his thumb out of the way to eat lol), and was...
  22. Re: Should I stop BFing at 9 months to be able to gain sanit

    I can relate to your concern; my son weighed just under 16 lbs at 12 months. I worried constantly, and agonized over what I should be doing. I talked to our pediatrician (numerous times lol), and...

    Re: Weaning party criteria and ideas

    I think it's really whatever length of time works for you--for me, I'm not sure I would make sure she was completely done when we had the celebration; I could even see doing it as kind of an "ok,...

    Re: Weaning party criteria and ideas

    I think that's a neat idea. It wouldn't necessarily have to be a party in terms of numbers, but maybe just a special acknowledgment with the three of you--the cookie decorating would be fun, and you...
  25. Re: Slow flow or Fast flow nipples?

    I would stick with the slow flow. It's most like nursing, and if she switches to the faster flow I'd be concerned that it could interfere with her suck when it was time to nurse. We used the Playtex...
