  4. Re: How long does your baby sleep at night?

    My DD, who will be 5 months next week, is down for the night from 8:30p-5:30a (straight through). She also takes 2- 2 1/2 naps a day. I guess I should consider myself very lucky.

    Re: Hands free bra

    Thanks so much for the sports bra idea! Never even thought of that. I'll just use that until the one I decide to order comes in.

    Re: Self weaning, already?

    When she starts showing signs of hunger is when I begin to nurse. So I don't think I'm trying to nurse when she's not hungry. She'll latch on, but after a minute or two she bites and I mean really...

    Re: Clogged Duct! Tried Everything!

    Where do you buy those supplements?

    Hardly getting anything!!

    I've been pumping 3-4x a day to build up supply for when I return to work. I'm always able to get 1oz per breast. However, the last 2-3 days I barely get 0.5oz total. What gives?
