    Re: Breast Pump Question

    The Medela pump in style is awesome. I have it and LOVE it. I wouldn't be without it. I would tell any new mom to get a pump and have it on hand even if you are going to be a stay-at-home mom and...

    I don't have any great advice, just wanted to say that your post sounds like my situation exactly... DS slept awesome from months 1.5-4 with only one predictable night feeding and then went right...

    Re: Scheduling/Feeding/Sleeping???

    The only sleep books I read before LO was born were Babywise and The No Cry Sleep Solution. I wish I had never read Babywise because it just stressed me out and in my opinion is a really bad book....

    Re: New Mom, Help!

    As everyone has said, what you are feeling is so common and normal and overwhelming. I have a LO who is now almost six months old.

    I feel your pain mama. My LO, who is now 5.5 months, HATED his infant car seat with a passion. As a result of my not wanting him to CIO in the car, we were limited to car rides of 5 min for the first...

  8. Re: How often do you BF your 3 or 4 month old?

    When DS was a few weeks old I wondered about that, since all the books say that for the first couple months they usually eat every 2-3 hrs. The books never seemed to say how to feed them when they...

    Re: Help! new mom (2 week old)

    I would highly recommend calling a local LLL leader and/or going to a LLL meeting in your area. The LLL leader would, I'm sure, be more than happy to talk with you and offer reassurance. My LO is 5...

    Re: right breast bigger for over a week

    I have a similar issue with my left producing more than my right (I know this from pumping output). I started noticing it when DS was 3 wks old (DS is now 5 months). I was afraid the left would stop...
  13. Re: Baby started sleeping through the night..

    I can't comment about whether your supply will drop or not - but, my DS starting sleeping through the night also around that time (and did for 2 mos, but no longer does!). I, too, was worried about...

    Re: Newbie sort of..

    Re: Pumping - what's the secret?

    I get very little out even an hour after a feeding as well. I've read that this is normal for exclusively breastfeeding moms. I would look at www.kellymom.com, I can't quote you the exact page on...

    at what age is cow's milk OK?

    I feel like this is a silly question - but until what age does a baby need to be given either breastmilk or formula? I'm just trying to understand this in case something happens where I am unable to...
  18. Re: Which postion did you find most helpful?

    My DS was 9 lb 14 oz at birth and I found every position difficult at first. My big post-partum tummy seemed to get in the way! DS always seemed way too big for the football hold and that never...
