    Re: contemplating throwing in the towel!

    Try to hang in their. It sounds like you may have an over active let down if she is gagging. I had one too and I would be drenched after a feeding. This should correct itself in time. My son also...

    Re: What initial supplies do you need?

    I agree with just about everything. The lanolin was very helpful, nursing bras, nursing pj's/tanks, breast pads (I had the washable as well, I felt more comfortable with them, although they do show...

    Re: I need reassurance I'm not a bad mom

    My little one sleeps with a blanket because he sleeps better that way. Just be really careful sice your little one is still so little. SIDS risks are at the highest during the first 4 months.

    Re: Breast Pump on an Airplane

    I also had my son with me, but they didn't even look at it on our departure flight. Coming home, they checked every piece we had with us, but checked and carry on, but nothing was said specifically...
  15. Re: using a pacifier if you plan to breastfeed?

    We waited several weeks too. I was going back and forth and even asked my ped for her advise (I do not want a 5 yr with a paci in his mouth) and she said that if I took it away at a year, I shouldn't...

    My son (now almost6 mths) ate about every 1 1/2 to 2 hrs for the first few months (he still eats every 2-3 hours during the day) on one side only for about 5 minutes. I was concerned because I had...

    Re: So tired of pumping

    I'm a teacher so I am off for the summer and I am so thankful not to have to pump everyday. Since I have been off (about three weeks), I think I have only pumped maybe 5 times, and not once in over a...
