  5. Re: Trying to produce more milk and starting solids

  6. Re: First time mama, nurse on demand or set schedule? Also.. pump?

    Your midwife is right that it is important to nurse on demand. If your breasts are engorged or overly full, express a little to comfort but not to "empty" the breast. Breast milk is produced on...

    Re: Trying to produce more milk!!

    I know that you want to be able to tell how much milk that you make by pumping but this just isn't accurate. Pumping is a poor indicator of supply. Many moms have tons of milk but cannot pump a...

    Re: the wrong milk???

    While fresh milk is the best for your baby's needs at the moment, frozen milk is fine too. Unless your baby is fed entirely frozen milk, the fact that it was expressed several months ago should not...

  14. Re: How much BF does a newborn need????

    Will he continue to nurse on that side if he is still hungry? Since breast milk is produced on a supply and demand basis, your body will make more milk for him if he is still hungry. There are sets...

  18. Re: When can I take her off the breast?

    If she has slipped off, it's ok to break the latch. Then just see if she wants to latch back on and make sure she takes plenty of breast tissue in her mouth.

    Re: Enough?

    That is all very normal. Like the previous posters said, he's used to being attached to you 24 hours a day so it's fine for him to nurse frequently. You mentioned he's having good wet/soiled...

    Re: One breast responds better?

    Kellymom has a good link on breastfeeding while taking antidepressants. http://www.kellymom.com/health/meds/antidepressants-hale10-02.html It's not a LLL site but has good info. I hope this helps!
  24. Re: novice pumping ? go back to work may 3

    1-1.5 is a great output! Remember that you are exclusively breastfeeding right now so all of that milk is in addition to what your baby is getting from nursing.
