    Re: 8 days and still on strike

    Just a quick note- I'm just the opposite. If I am pumping, I can get a letdown if I gently touch the breast around where the baby's hands would touch when nursing. Also try hand compression while...

    Re: Mastitis + Vomiting Baby, Please help!

    Are you in close contact with a latation consultant and LLL leader. I would make sure to talk to them daily until this resolves.
    I sure hope you get better quickly. Also, if you haven't tried it,...

    Re: Can common cold lower milk supply?

    Also taking antihistamines can drop your supply- they dry up your mucous membranes (runny nose) and also drop milk supply b/c of the way they work.

    Re: Can I leave BM at room temp?

    Oh, forgot to add, make sure she doesn't shake up the milk in the bottle like you wouild with formula. It destroys enzymes in the milk.

    Re: Can I leave BM at room temp?

    It should be fine to set it out for an hour, even a few hours is OK at room temp according to my lactation consultant. However, a quicker way would be to put the bottle of milk in a coffee mug filled...

    Re: How long are you planning to BF?

    my goal is always at least a year, but I didn't wean dd2 until over 3. She and ds3 tandem nursed 6 months. The shortest I nursed was 4 mo w/ ds1- no experience or help then. I was determined w ds2...

    Re: Sleepy baby?

    This sounds totally normal to me. 2 of my 7 kids were that way as newborns. One even went over 3 months like that! I just had to wake him up for feedings and stay on top of things, otherwise he would...

    Re: Thrush!

    Just another quick tip- might want to also wash your underwear hot like your bras. I couldn't get rid of it totally until I did everything! That was a few kiddos back- this time I didn't treat at...
  9. Re: Can emotions drop your milk supply? (death in family- long)

    Thanks for the encouragement. Should it take a long time to get the supply back. Will it stay low while I'm still so upset? Hopefully this will get better quickly...I have to go today and pick out...
  10. Can emotions drop your milk supply? (death in family- long)

    Long story that I won't elaborate on in full, but I need some advice on what to do. My cousin's baby died Thursday. She was 20 weeks pregnant and I was with her when she found out. We went in for the...

    Re: Baby not gaining weight

    BTW, milk production is at its best between 2 and 10 a.m. Any nursing you can get in during those hours the better. I agree also with pp, take him into your bed at night and nurse on demand. He'll be...

    Re: HELP...giving up breastfeeding? LONG

    That sounds like plenty of pumpin to me. A lot of moms never get up at night to pump or only get up once. During the day every 3 hours is OK. Every two hours is considered pretty frequent I think. ...

    Re: medela pump makes airy noise

    Talked to a mom using a Medela PIS this week who said the part you plug up to only pump on one side was not working ocrrectly and made an airy sound. Were you double or single pumping?
    Otherwise, if...
  14. Re: Menstrual cramps??? Baby's only 2 mo. old!

    Well, this is off and on, not just with nursing. I'm still having it today. so that's about 3 days now. I'm wondering if it could be the beginning of a bladder infection. It doesn't seem connected...

    Re: HELP...giving up breastfeeding? LONG

    Oh, how frustrated you must be after going through so much- but my advice is don't give up! If you can find a way to keep giving baby your breast milk, any at all is better than none. Maybe with time...

    Re: is he getting enough???

    I agree with the previous posters. Sounds OK, but also at that age, baby needs to go no longer than 4 hours at night between feedings, and in the daytime should be nursing every 2-3 hours. That is so...

    Well, my LO napped great the first few weeks and then naps got really short. She is 9 weeks now and eats about every 1-2 hours for a few minutes, then will nap about 10- 15 minutes before awake...

    Re: Am I too idealistic?

    Being totally unable to produce any milk is extremely rare really, and most mother's issues with low supply are correctable if caught soon enough and with the right solution. However, there are some...
  19. Menstrual cramps??? Baby's only 2 mo. old!

    ok- I'm having cramps today! What is up with that???
    LO is only 2 mo old today! She is exclusively breastfed. This seems way too soon for this. I stopped bleeding around 3-4 weeks.
    Has this...

    Re: Still choking!

    yes, my LO didn't catch up to my OALD and over supply until about 4 mo old either. Taking her off and letting the milk drip/ spray into a cloth for about 30 sec. should help. Take her off right when...

    Re: Breastfeeding Questions???????

    good to hear your night went better- hang in there! you're doing a good job! Just try to go with the flow and offer frequently when the time seems right. Trust your instincts. :)
  22. Re: When do you stop counting wet diapers?

    I quit at around 3 months unless there's a problem like baby is sick, not feeding well, etc.

    Re: Help, I'm so frustrated!

    she said 10 WEEKS old, not 10 months. So it could easily be reflux at that age i think

    Re: feeding from one breast

    The amount you pump is plenty- actually very good! :)
    It's fine to feed one side at a time- mine have all done that until they were about 6-8 mo. old. As for supply, how old is your baby? The first...

    Re: Breastfeeding Questions???????

    When my others were 7 mo. on average they nursed when waking, before lunch, at naptime, then at dinner and bedtime. Usually then 1-2 times at night. Mine were quick to nurse (I have OALD) by then and...
