    Re: Trip away from nursing toddler

    Thanks everyone for your words of advice and reassurance! I don't have much of a BM stash in the freezer right now. In fact I had pretty much stopped pumping the last couple months, because I am...

    Re: Letdown premonition?

    Thanks for your input, mamas! I think it's really cool, too. I love telling DH, "She's going to wake up in a minute!" and seeing how amazed he is when she does. ;) It is just amazing how our bodies...

    Re: Should I try block nursing?

    Update on this situation...the gassiness has seemed to resolve itself, so I never really attempted block nursing. However, I am going to try it now, because her poops are now *always* green, and...

    Re: Should I try block nursing?

    Re: I can't keep my baby awake

    My baby is the same way - has been a sleepy nurser since birth, though it's getting better as she's getting older (almost 4 wks old now). I had some success with the tickling/rubbing the top of her...

    Re: Side-lying nursing?

    Re: Cracked Nipples & Bleeding

    I found Soothies to feel really nice and help with healing some cracks early on.
