  1. Re: vids on latching inverted nipples

    Hi Cayla! I had similar issues, used a nipple shield for a long time. All I can say is it got better for me, and now nursing is great. I found this site helpful...
  2. Re: Feeding Schedule for almost 12 month old

    My almost 13 month old has been following this schedule for some time now:

    wake at 6:30 or 7, nurse around 7:30.
    I make my coffee and some toast/waffle/muffins and we share that. Often he does...

    Re: Newbie needs a bra!! Please

    Check out Bella Materna brand. They are not cheap, but I know they have G cups in many styles. Other nice thing is that you can wash their bras at night before you go to bed in the sink, and they'll...

    Re: a couple of questions/need help

    My son had trouble taking a bottle at first. It took about a week for him to take one from the caregiver, just as long with my mother, and then another few days after all that to take one in our...
  7. Re: Bottom tooth a-brewing. How will this affect BF

    My son just got his first tooth a week or so ago...prior to that he nursed with a very shallow latch, kept letting go, biting his lip, then latching on again and I did have pretty bad soreness,...

    Re: not sure what to treat first!

    I would add to try to keep as much air on the damaged nipple as possible, so you're not irritating it over and over again against your clothes. Not having a bra on will help with the plugs too.
    I...

    Re: ouch!! bad latch

    mama2ryan - one thing, if it's hurting when you pump, have you tried to remedy that? I've had good success with the SuperShields! Maybe you should check them out. =)

    Re: ouch!! bad latch

    Mine is a little over 7 months and I think we're suffering the same thing. I've even been treating myself for thrush because of the sharp pains just in case, but I'll be watching this thread for...

    Re: Nipple Shields??

    agree with everyone else's suggestions.
    For us, it just took a lot of patience. The day my son finally latched without the shield at 10 weeks, I had just pumped for about 15 minutes (went to a...
  12. Re: Thrush/Milk Blisters: What worked?

    Wish I knew about the milk blisters, that sounds frustrating. We're in the same boat trying to treat thrush for the first time, seems like we're making no progress! Hope someone sees this and can...

    Re: 1st Time Mom - Solids/BF Q's

    I'm pretty sure they usually offer a bottle before he naps and solids after he naps, so never really close together. That is what I do at home, too, only I nurse soon after he wakes and give solids...

    Re: 1st Time Mom - Solids/BF Q's

    I'm in the same boat as you - this is all new! I remind myself daily that complete idiots raise healthy children all the time and the fact that I'm worrying about it means I'm probably doing better...
  15. Re: Upper lip tucked under @ 4 months?

    My son does the same, and he also sucks the lower lip a lot, since about 4 months when he started drooling. Still no teeth yet, but I notice he also sucks on his lower lip sometimes when he's...

    Re: Recurring clogged milk duct

    Three weeks is a long time! If you're not ready to call your OBGYN yet, maybe you could try some lecithin capsules to see if it will keep the plug from coming back?
    I started taking lecithin with...

    Re: short nipples; large breasts

    I can't offer anything in terms of nursing in public...I've never been able to do it, and I have average sized breasts, so best of luck to you! Little stinker is so heavy now, and I never was able...
  18. Re: Lightheaded and Dizzy 4 months post partum

    Def be careful with the ativan, it just masks the dizziness, doesn't treat it. You should be instructed to stop taking it at least a few days before your balance test, whenever that is, so as to not...

    Re: Traveling with BM

    Depending on how long you'll be gone for each outing, you may only need to take enough frozen for a couple bottles. Use the 1-1.5 oz per hour away from baby rule. Once you return from shopping...

    Re: So frustrated (mastitis)

    I second the lecithin! And be prepared to keep taking it, every time I try to stop I get little lumps and I am too scared to stay off it. The only thing I wanted to add is to drink lots of water and...

    Re: Have you been to a LLL meeting?

    I think this could be a great thread! I've only been to one meeting, when my son was 10 or 11 weeks or so old, and there was a wide age range of moms and kids there. I felt young, and I'm 28....
