    Re: nipple pain - cut/tear?

    There are some OTC remedies for thrush that are pretty harmless and might be worth a try. This is my favorite - http://drjaygordon.com/breastfeeding/thrush.html

    Re: Feeling ashamed about this...

    When I nurse, sometimes I get nice feelings, sometimes I get almost shooting anxiety, which often manifests in feeling of shame or self-blame. Depending on my state overall (I have had PPD or...
  3. Re: No, actually my face is not made of rubber

    :ita :ita Nip it in the bud now, it only gets worse when they become toddlers. If things get too violent with my 7.5 month old, I stop the nursing session. She may cry for a second, but it gets the...

    Re: nipple pain - cut/tear?

    I'd guess thrush? It can create lacerations in the nipple, and it is EXCRUCIATINGLY painful? :yikes I don't know, but that's just my first thought? Have you had thrush before?

    Re: New nipple pain

    Have you tried lubricating your nipples with a little olive oil (or similar) before pumping? It can help!

    As far as the pain in your nipples now. I'd be worried about thrush. Or it could just be...

    Re: Feeling ashamed about this...

    Hi Mama! Have you read about D-MER? Some women feel depressed and anxious when they nurse due to the hormones. What you are describing sounds like it could be a form of this - shame and disgust are...
  7. Re: I feel like I want to cry. Then, ask a question

    It is really hard. :hug I bust my rear trying to pump enough for my baby and my DH (who stays home) is respectful of how hard it is for me to pump, but a little goes to waste now and then and I...

    Re: 15 month old

    Yep. She's getting nutrition and antibodies and other good things that help keep her healthy. Check out this site.

    I always thought bottle warmers were fine? :shrug

    ETA: Kellymom says it's fine.
  10. Re: Mastitis and pressure from doc and family to wean

    I agree, I'm thinking you might need stronger antibiotics, not weaning!! Maybe your doctor is pressuring you to wean because that seems easier than doing the work of culturing you and figuring out...
  11. Re: Cannot get rid of the last pumping session, help!!!

    I definitely felt a little bittersweet pump weaning too. Until I started enjoying how AWESOME it is to just nurse and not pump!! :lol

  13. Re: Can I breastfeed from just 1 breast

    :ita Yes. And you may be able to breastfeed on both sides, even after a surgery. In fact, if you can breastfeed on that side at all, it might be the best thing for your recovery. Can you give us more...
  14. Re: More questions about breastfeeding and colds

    Yes, I have heard that we make antibodies to any illness we are exposed to, pretty much from the time of exposure. So if your baby gets sick (from someone else), you'll be exposed and start making...

    Re: Think I have thrush

    :ita Yeah, usually thrush is excruciatingly painful. I'm definitely not hearing that from your post, so I'd be wondering if it might be something else. Some of the OTC/home treatments, like...

    Good luck!! :)
  17. Re: does my baby ever need a 5 oz bottle?

    Sometimes babies will sleep a bit more at night, and daytime production goes up? This can happen anytime, and switch back at any time, of course. I always try to remember all of the night nursing I...
  18. Re: Am I baby's protection from colds?

    :ita What Mommal said. Breastfeeding doesn't protect babies from all illnesses, but the antibodies passed through mom's milk do enhance baby's immune response and tend to lessen the severity of...

    Re: Not pumping at work?

    :ita It's a close call - if your shift was one hour shorter, I might say don't worry about it. But it would be BEST if you could pump at least once. I second the recommendation of a hands-free setup....
  21. Re: Do any blw babies develop any eating problems at all?

    Oh definitely, you have to continue to offer healthy choices. And if they won't eat what you made that night, offer healthy alternatives. Like I offer plain beans and broccoli instead of beans and...

    Re: Core needle biopsy and breastfeeding

    This is what mine was too! Just goes to show - most lumps that turn up during breastfeeding are breastfeeding related! :doh

    So glad it was benign. Hope that's the end of it!! Get back to nursing...
  23. Re: Do any blw babies develop any eating problems at all?

    I'm a huge proponent of BLW, but it isn't a guarantee against issues with eating. Some babies are just picky eaters, love their milk, and take a long time to eat solids. And remain picky, no matter...

    Re: Suction level on pump?

    Yeah, if it's hurting, I'd dial it back for a bit. You may want to increase the compressions, etc. Could AF be about to visit?
