  1. Re: Horrible nipple soreness at 17 months!!

    I am in a very similar boat! I am still nursing my 17 month old and the past two weeks have been nothing but sore nipples whether I am nursing or pumping. I haven't gotten my period back since the...
  2. Re: Stomach bug leading to decreased/low supply?

    I was in the same boat the day after Thanksgiving. Yuck! It took a full week after I was able to eat and drink normally for my supply to fully recover, so about 9 days total. I just pumped and nursed...

    Re: Breastmilk Preference

    We are dairy - sensitive in my family, so I am going slow with all animal milks. Yogurt causes an upset belly sometimes, so I am nervous about cow's milk. Our pediatrician recommended rice milk, but...

    Breastmilk Preference

    My son turned 1 last week and we are going to continue nursing. I have heard that after 1, more calories should come from food and less from milk, but I am struggling with a little boy who much...

    Vaporizer! More moisture content in the air squeezes out the number of circulating airborne viruses.

    Re: Will Separation Induce Weaning?

    Thank you for the tips! Our out of state wedding is about 2 months away and my little boy is still very content at the breast, so this worry is still nagging the back of my mind. I will make sure...

    Re: Milk Needs at 12 Months

    This is great insight. Thank you. Is there an ounce goal I should be aiming for? DS does well with solids, but he sure does love his bottles. If I cut down a pumping session, I am likely to bring...

    Milk Needs at 12 Months

    So it looks like I am going to make it past the year mark. Yay! I am wondering how to handle this next phase. Right now I am pumping 3x's a day at work so I can send 15 ozs to daycare daily. I am...

    Re: Low Carb Diet and Supply

    Thank you all for the suggestions! I would say that I am following a mainly Paleo style diet (except for cream in my morning cup of coffee-it's the only thing I can't bring myself to part with!)....

    Re: Low Carb Diet and Supply

    Yes, I can do potatoes in moderation. I could probably sneak in 1/2 C brown rice sometimes, too. Just no wheat, oatmeal, beans, corn, millet or other starchy grains or legumes.

    If I eat the...

    Low Carb Diet and Supply

    Good morning!

    Due to gastrointestinal issues, I recently switched to a low carb diet. It's done great things for my tummy, but my supply is taking a big hit.

    DS is 11 months and still very...
  12. Re: Pumping output decreasing; 8 month old baby (x-posted)

    Oooh, 14 ounces in two pumping sessions! I am very jealous. I am a full time working/pumping mom too, so I am very familiar with this concern.

    Three things. 1) I feel like almost everyone goes...
  13. Re: Weight loss 10 months post partum-breast feeding

    I wanted to echo that I am in a very similar boat: 9.5 mo DS, full time working mother and exclusive breastfeeder. I am also beyond exhausted (which everyone attributes to DS's sleep habits), am down...
  14. Re: Normal Postpartum Hair Loss Prolonged by BFing?

    Thanks ladies. I guess I will head back to my doctor. I had a thyroid scan and blood test at 4 mo postpartum. The hormone levels were supposedly normal but the thyroid was slightly enlarged. I will...
  15. Normal Postpartum Hair Loss Prolonged by BFing?

    I know that hair loss postpartum is normal. My baby is 9 months and I am still losing hair like crazy. My ponytail is seriously deflated with all the missing strands. I don't remember this type of...

    Will Separation Induce Weaning?

    Hi everyone -

    My brother is getting married in January on the other side of the country and we're not bringing the kids since it's an adult-only event and I am in the wedding party. I think I'll...

    Re: Where did my milk go?

    I am so thankful that I found this post. My son is nearly 9 months and like yours and karrieperry's little one, he is into EVERYTHING (crawling, climbing, standing) except nursing. I've also...

    Re: Nipple Nipping

    He bites before we even get to nursing; it is when I offer, and we never get to actual feeding, unless he is asleep. He hasn't eaten since 9am today (it's 2:30pm now), although I have offered at...

    Nipple Nipping

    Help! My almost 9 month old keeps biting me. He presently has an ear infection, so that might be contributing, but every time I offer the breast while he is fully awake, he takes just the nipple and...
  20. Re: Partial night weaning contributing to low supply?

    I am in the same boat as you!! I work full time and I get next to no sleep because baby wakes constantly for night feedings. My supply had decreased too, because DS is more interested in crawling and...

    Re: Back to work pumping no milk!

    I second the recommendation for distraction. Whenever my supply dips, it takes a greater hit when I compulsively check the output or think about the letdown. I usually pop on to this forum board...
  22. Re: Stressed with Breastfeeding an almost 8 monther!!!

    I can try co-sleeping again. DS is an early crawler so I felt safer with him in a crib once he started moving all over. But my drop in supply did tie to his move into his own crib. So I can go back...
  23. Stressed with Breastfeeding an almost 8 monther!!!

    Can someone counsel me on the right thing to do?

    DS is almost 8 months old. He's a happy boy, meeting all of his milestones, etc. He's also so SUPER distracted at feedings that he would rather...

    Re: Suggestions to increase supply

    You feed at 6:30 and pump 3 times during the day. And then he nurses 2 to 3 more times? I count that you are stimulating your breasts 6-7 times per day. Is that right?

    I've found that to keep my...

    Re: How To Tell If Low Supply???

    I made the mistake of getting hung up on percentiles. I had a baby born in the 90th percentile who fell to the 20th by the 4 month visit. I became obsessed with the numbers despite the fact that our...
