    Re: Miserable Nights

    Thanks all. She did sleep better after cuting out the whole milk. She is waking up every 2-3 hours (which is normal for her), but going back to sleep easily. She also got her 2nd molar, so that...

    Re: Low supply after sickness

    She was able to drink the bottle. She took about 3 oz of the 4 I pumped. So at least she got some milk down. This morning she surprised us and woke up feeling better. She is still a little...

    Re: Low supply after sickness

    Re: Low supply after sickness

    Good point on mastitis. After reading the post today, I kind of wondered if that could be it. Cause I did feel just a little bit of tenderness on the right side. But I think it is just a clogged...

    Re: Low supply after sickness

    I didn't go to work today. But I sent the baby to daycare so I could rest. She nursed three times tonight before she went to sleep and seemed content. It is my understanding that most adults don't...

    Low supply after sickness

    I have exclusively breastfed my 6 1/2 month daughter and started solids at 6 months old. I work full time and normally pump 4 oz every three hours and this seems just right for her.

    We have had...

    Re: Not Eating Well

    She is doing better. She drank 9 oz in 13 hours - which is not quite normal but not too far off. I came home this evening and she nursed one side and did not want the other. I am so tired from...

    Re: Not Eating Well

    We have only given her expressed milk - but she flat out refuses bottles and refuses to nurse except after a long time. The nurse at her doctor's office actually advised me to give her pedialyte...

    Re: Not Eating Well

    I called the on call doctor from her pediatrician office this morning. He says not to worry as long as she pees at least once a day? That doesn't seem right to me.

    He also said to try and give...

    Not Eating Well

    My little girl (3 1/2 months old) has caught a cold and ear infection. She is on antibiotics for the ear infection.

    I am having the toughest time getting her to eat. I know she is at least a...
  14. Re: Ending Maternity Leave with Overnight Work Trip

    She ended up drinking around 60 oz. She had a rough first evening and cried for hours. But she settled down and slept through the nights 11:30-5 both nights. She also started liking her paci. I...
  15. Ending Maternity Leave with Overnight Work Trip

    As much as I hate it- My maternity leave ends this Wednesday and I have to immediately go out of town for 2 nights for training. The timing stinks-I hardly ever travel for work. My little girl will...

    Ben is 1!

    I can't believe my little guy is one. I am so thankful to have been able to breastfeed him so long while working full time (started when he was 3 months old). I have a very supportive company and...

    Re: Introducing Cow's Milk

    Thanks. I assumed that he needed as much milk as always. He does best with solids in the evenings. But he eats some at daycare. I suspect he would eat more if he had less milk.

    I am going so...

    Should I scald my milk?

    Hi,

    I work full time and pump to send breastmilk for my 9 month old son. He has always taken the milk without any problem, though I know it does taste soapy after being stored. Now that he is...

    Re: Pumping speeds

    I have the same pump. I keep it at the faster speed the entire time. I tried slowing it down when let down starts, and it seems like the milk flow stops after a very short period and I don't get as...
  21. Re: Regaining supply after stomach virus

    Now I am dealing with a nursing strike! I guess he wanted milk and I didn't have enough. Now he won't even latch. I am pumping. Trying to get back to health, an emotional wreck. What a change a...

    Night four spent in the bathroom. Thought I was getting better.
  23. Re: Regaining supply after stomach virus

    Thanks for the suggestions. I have been eating oatmeal before I got the stomach virus but I think I need to wait for my stomach to settle a little better before I get back on it.

    I added an extra...
