    Re: Support/Advice on Relactation please

    I agree with PP on the herbs. I started the relactation process when my LO was 4 weeks. I used the herbs, and by about 6 weeks my supply was good.
    I used a Medela Lactina, which is a very similar...

    Re: Getting Prepared - Fearing Constipation

    I bought some rice cereal today, I am not going to use it yet, but I wanted to pick it out myself without arguing with DH. I bought an organic whole grain rice cereal, with no soy. I was suprised to...

    Re: First Time Pumper - Need Advice

    It sounds like you don't have supply issues at all. If you can handle the uncomfortableness (sp) I have a feeling you won't diminish your supply if you go straight through the school day. Although...

    Re: First Time Pumper - Need Advice

    How has your supply been in the past? Have you had issues trying to keep your supply up in the past? Any other issues?

    Getting Prepared - Fearing Constipation

    LO is 15 weeks. He will go to Pedi again on 06/20.

  8. Re: Afteroon Fussiness - Growth Spurt? (long)

    Well, I had attributed it to mostly fighting sleep in the past. He starts crying and turns red, and is inconsolable. He stiffens out, so it's hard to cuddle him and rock him or pat him. He doesnt...

    Re: Medela Swing Style?

    Well, I went ahead and bought a PISA. They sell them in town, and I figured I might as well go with something I had heard a lot of good about. Plus, I have had issues with OS, and somewhere down the...

    It almost sounds like you are dry pumping. Are you getting the 1oz and then pumping for a long time afterwards? Usually when I heard that popping sound it was because my breasts were getting more...

    I only used a shield for a few days, but started nursing at 10 weeks. My nipples were sore for about a week, just because they hadn't had direct contact - and because baby would slip down onto the...

    Re: 4 Month Old Constipated

    Yes, My first question is how long has it been? My LO goes a week sometimes longer and is exclusively BF.

    Re: Medela Lactina

    Hi,
