    Re: Can I drink this tea?

    Here's a link from kelly mom about herbs to avoid while breastfeeding:

    It looks like lemon balm can affect supply. But how old is your baby? And do...

    Re: Last drops of breastmilk?

    Hi mama, sorry you've had a rocky start to breastfeeding. At this point, how much formula is baby taking in the day? Is he still nursing at all? Are you currently pumping? Are you still working with...
  3. Re: 2.5 year old wanting to nurse ALL THE TIME?

    I don't really see weaning as a linear process, where children steadily nurse less until one day they stop. I mean yes, on average that is what happens but day-to-day, week-to-week, month-to-month -...
  4. Re: Alternating breasts and pumping question.

    It's not uncommon for baby to prefer one breast over the other - for example, one breast may have a faster flow, which baby either does or does not like. If you want to even things out, then doing...

    Re: Growth spurt?

    Growth spurt, teething, developmental milestones could all explain increased night awakenings, which in any case would be perfectly normal for an 8 month old. My LO certainly had similar behavior at...

    Re: dental surgery while nursing

    I did local anesthesia too for my wisdom teeth (nonerupted). If you decide to go with IV sedation, you could find out what your surgeon uses and call InfantRisk to get their recommendations on...
  7. Re: WE DID IT! 1 year of exclusive breast milk

    Re: Today I am quitting the pump!

    It is a little bit of a weird feeling to stop doing something that's been so much a part of your routine - but in the end I think very liberating to be free of the pump! If anything I've enjoyed...

    Re: Another Pump Weaning Question

    How long have you been working on pump weaning? It's been just a few weeks right? I used to have to pump when I worked late but eventually I got to the point where even that wasn't necessary. Now if...

    Re: 2 pump sessions or 3?

    Okay, so it sounds like you have 6-8 oz extra per day? Am I getting that right? In that case I think I might continue with the current schedule and add in a third pumping session if he starts eating...

    Re: Unplanned Travel

    :ita I think it's really normal for baby to nurse a lot at night, he wants to be with you. Are you co-sleeping? That helps a lot of moms deal with the frequent waking. Even if you don't want to...

    Re: Another Pump Weaning Question

    Yes, I'm done pumping. It sounds like you are on track - I think the "uncomfortably full" feeling will subside with time as your supply regulates to match her demand. It sounds like both pumping and...

    Re: 2 pump sessions or 3?

    You mentioned in another thread that your LO is reverse cycling. So you're pumping 12 oz and how much is he drinking? It's common for moms to have a harder time pumping as the first year goes on. So...

    Re: Unplanned Travel

    You'll need to pump while you are away, ideally at least 8 times/24 hours. What kind of work trip is this? I've been to a number of conferences while nursing. Some were at hotels where I could go...

    Re: Another Pump Weaning Question

    Maybe it's just taking until late in the day for your breasts to feel the effects of the decreased pumping? Do you feel full BEFORE baby nurses in the morning? I'm thinking that maybe she does a good...

    Re: Not Able to Pump Enough Milk

    Keep in mind that it does take some time after you add in a pumping session to see the effect. You can do this! :)

    Re: Weaning from pump

    How has the pump weaning gone so far? Have you felt very full, engorged, any issues with plugged ducts? Or did you find it easy to cut back? I think if you were able to easily cut back you could try...

    Re: When to use Pacifiers

    I work as well and my nanny started using the pacifier with my LO when she was a couple months old. Now she is two and she still loves nursing! I think as long as you are attentive to the issues that...

    You can certainly put the milk in a fridge where other people put their lunches. That's what I always did. If you think the sight of your milk might make other people uncomfortable, you can put it...
  22. Re: Pumpin for the first time due to illness

    806 is the local area code. I'd be happy to call for you tomorrow if you PM me the names of the medications you are taking.
  23. Re: Pumpin for the first time due to illness

    Sorry about the kidney stone!

    First thought: find out how long you need to wait before you nurse again by calling InfantRisk - they are open until 5 pm central today. The number is 806-352-2519....

    Re: Not Able to Pump Enough Milk

    Rest assured that your breasts are never empty. If you've just pumped, your daughter may have to work a little harder, and nurse a little longer, to get the amount of milk she needs - but that just...
  25. Re: Going back to work at a hospital

    Hi mama, welcome to the forum.

    It IS stressful to go back to work after having a baby, whatever your work situation. Even when I was going back to work after the third baby, and had been through...
