  1. Should we go ahead and start BLW?

    Little man will be six months old on the 30th of this month. If we are going by weeks, he is almost 25 weeks old. He has been showing some signs that he is ready to start eating. He can sit up on...

    Re: Vitamins

    Ha ha! I know, I know. Having kids seven years apart throws me for a loop! It makes me feel like a first time mom all over again and I worry about everything.

    Sooooo...vitamins. Yay? Nay?

    Baby is four months old and is breastfed only. We plan on doing baby led weaning once he starts to show signs that he is ready, but that probably won't be for...

    Re: Pumping Pain

    That's a good point, Karen. I'll have to pay more attention to that to see if it happens again.

    For now, the larger size shields seem to have done the trick. I've only been pumping for ten...

    Pumping Pain

    I pump on occasion, usually just one time per week, to maintain a small freezer stash in case of an emergency. I use a Medela Pump In Style Advanced electric pump with the standard 24mm breast...
  6. Re: Need some Advice/Support. Losing my mind.

    You are doing an amazing job! You should be patting yourself on the back for sticking with breastfeeding after a traumatic birth and what sounds like horrible advice and "help" in the hospital. You...

  8. Re: Question About Upcoming Medical Procedure

    Thank you both for your responses! We decided that we will bring him with us and I will nurse him in between procedures. We will bring a couple of bottles of pumped milk just in case we run into...
  9. Question About Upcoming Medical Procedure

    My son was born on May 30th and I need to have a medical procedure done on September 3rd, so he will be right at three months old. The procedure is Mohs surgery and it is to get rid of an area of...
  10. Re: Going away for a day: baby won't sleep or take bottle

    I would cancel the trip if you can. Some babies have a really tough time taking a bottle at first and then end up taking it with no problem, but I would definitely cancel it for now since she is so...
  11. Re: Unable to breastfeed due to meds...advice?

    I understand. I honestly was not trying to be prying, but like Mommal pointed out, a lot of times pediatricians/doctors/pharmacists err on the side of caution simply because they are not that...

    Re: Introducing rice cereal

    It isn't recommended to start solids before six months and even then the baby should be showing signs of readiness. Is your baby already sitting up unassisted and using her pincer grasp?

    Is there...

    Re: Pressure to Start Rice Cereal

    There is barely any nutritional value in rice cereal. If you think your daughter is ready to start experimenting with solids, you can give her whole foods like avocado, banana, sweet potato, or a...

    Re: Solids or Formula?

    Personally, I wouldn't do either one. It sounds like you are doing great. Was it just the one time that he acted hungry in the car on the way home or has this been happening regularly? If it is a...

    Re: Feeling floppy

    I wouldn't worry too much mama. Everyone has milk supplies that vary drastically. Some have so much that they are able to build up a huge freezer stash and donate to milk banks while others...

    Re: Please Help!!!!

    Also...cut out the formula pronto! That will only make matters worse...trust me. Your body needs to get the signal to make more milk and that is not getting accomplished if you supplement with...

    Re: Please Help!!!!

    First of all, you should be fine as far as your implants go. When I had mine done, I made it very clear to my surgeon that I still wanted to breastfeed in the future. He said that putting them...

    Re: Typical Work Day

    Do you have your own office or somewhere you could go to besides the pumping room? Perhaps you could set up your pump to be hands free so that you can eat and pump at the same time.
  21. Re: 6wk old only sleeping 3hrs night and eating every hour

    Formula will not make her sleep longer, contrary to popular belief. Are you cosleeping? My youngest son was a very frequent nurser and I found that cosleeping was an easy way for him to nurse a ton...
  22. Re: Sample daily menu with snacks for a 1YO?

    C is two and a half, but it is still a struggle to get him to eat. I work from home and usually have a pick platter out at all times so he can eat whenever he feels like it, but there are times when...
  23. Re: Help! 10 day old all of a sudden confused at breast

    Do you think you might have an overactive letdown (OALD)? The choking and refusal of the breast are key signs of that. Luckily, it is an easy problem to fix. Before having her latch on, try hand...
