    Re: Where to buy Mother's Milk tea?

    I have bought it at local natural/whole foods type of stores, little out-of-the-way places. Oh, and drugstore.com too, which with their free shipping and periodic sales, is actually a bit cheaper.

    Drea, I think I felt that way in the first 2-3 months after Truman was born, but now at 5, almost 6, months, that feeling waned. Of course now I am pregnant and have to feel that way! :) We...

    Re: Just got the SNS! Any tips to help me out?

    I had officially stopped for 16 days, but for the last 3 weeks of the BFing I was down to two brief sessions per day - first thing in the a.m. and at bedtime. But I know he was getting hardly any...

    Andrea, did you baby latch onto it at all?

    My difficulty seemed to be getting to STAY on. He'll open up and suck two or three times but I think having bottles for so long (even though we always...

    Re: Trying to relactate... am I getting there?

    He will still latch on fairly easily, unless he's *starving* of course.
    But he sucks for about thirty seconds then pulls away and looks at me angrily and starts fussing. Nothing is coming out, or...

    Trying to relactate... am I getting there?

    First, a quick background. My son was born 2/10/06 so he's just barely 5 months old. For the first 3 weeks he was on just breast milk but then I had to have surgery and due to meds and pain wasn't...

    Re: Could I? Is it even possible? do I dare?

    I really don't know a lot about this, but it seems to me at the very least the medications you are taking for TTC might interfere with your body's ability to produce milk at all, even if you'd never...

    Re: How to pump when...

    Perhaps you could pump after a few feedings per day. You may not get much at each one, but over the course of a day may be able to get a few ounces, enough to make a bottle so you can go out. Or it...

    I think it is the radiation they are concerned about. CT scans do give you a much higher dose than a regular x-ray does. I really don't know much about the effect of it on BFing, but when I had one...
