    Re: Need to Wean Before Trip?

    I've never been able to hand express, but I think I'll be okay. He didn't nurse on one side in the morning last week and I wasn't hurting by nighttime. Woohoo!

    Re: Need to Wean Before Trip?

    Yeah, not willing to bring the pump. I'm DONE with that thing! I'm not worried about supply either, I just don't want to be uncomfortable.

    Need to Wean Before Trip?

    I'm slowly weaning my DS who just turned 2. We just dropped his nap time nursing session, so he's only nursing at bedtime and in the morning. I'm going to be gone overnight in a few weeks and will...

    Re: Co-sleeping with a vomiting baby

    I just changed out the first set of towels. I tried nursing him and he threw up immediately. : ( My husband is rocking him now and I'll try again in a few hours when he asks again. Thanks!

    Co-sleeping with a vomiting baby

    DS will be a year old in 4 days. He has his first stomach virus and has thrown up 6 times in the past 4 hours. We co-sleep and I normally nurse him throughout the night.

    What should I do when...

    Re: Tooth decay

    I nursed my DS1 through the night until he was 20 months old. (And his teeth came in fast, starting at 5 months.) He's almost 4 now and just had his first dental x-rays taken yesterday. No...

    Re: Thrush for three plus months

    Yes, the vasospasm sent shooting pains through my breasts and felt just like thrush. If the tip of your nipple turns white, I would say it's most likely vasospasms. Perhaps all of the meds and...

    Re: Thrush for three plus months

    I thought I had thrush for a few months and it turned out to be vasospasms. It felt just like thrush, which I had with DS1. I tried everything to get the "thrush" to go away, just like you. My...

    Re: Guilt

    How old is your baby? Keep in mind that your body has been through a great deal and your hormones are probably not back to normal yet. That along with the lack of sleep could be affecting the way...

    I agree that your daughter would benefit from hands-on help as soon as possible. I too suffered for weeks before I was brave enough to call a lactation consultant for help. Please also direct your...

    Re: Slow weight gain

    Welcome! I would think that if she was worried about him not gaining enough, then she'd recommend you supplement with breast milk or formula. I don't think rice cereal would add many calories. ...

    Re: Need help with 8.5 month old--supply

    I would think that milk production would slow down only if you're not nursing or pumping as much as before. (Unless you are pregnant or started certain types of birth control lately.) If he's...

    Re: More about sleep- not enough milk?

    I had to EP for 4 months for my DS2. He was a wonderful sleeper, going 6-7 hours at night. I was giving him 4 ounces in his bottle at bedtime and then 4 ounces in the middle of the night.

    Then...

    That is such an inspiring documentary! I would be concerned about getting enough calories from juicing alone. I wanted to do a juice cleanse at the start of the new year, but was afraid I wouldn't...
  17. Re: Perfume/scented lotion okay while BF

    I was using a heavily scented apricot scrub/soap that caused my DS2 to break out. I had to switch to an unscented bar soap. I'm sure your perfume will be fine, but watch for a reaction just in case.

    Re: 9 months and think I'm drying up!

    Great news! Hope the surgery goes well. I had to EP for 4 months and found that doing compressions while pumping increased my output. Also, look into doing a power pump or cluster pumping when you...

    Re: Hives from milk or external factor?

    Very odd. I'm thinking it must have been my soap (though it was the same kind I've been using since he was born). I tried a different kind today and he hasn't had any hives at all.

    Hives from milk or external factor?

    DS started breaking out in hives on Sunday afternoon. They appeared right after I nursed him and went away shortly afterward. I immediately called my sister (a nurse) and she thought it might be an...

    I wondered about that. He hasn't been gassy at all, so I won't worry about the hindmilk. Thanks!

    Re: SOS--Severe gas/abdominal pain, spit

    I'm also a vegetarian and I love to eat quinoa. It's high in protein and easy to prepare. You could also try to add in other types of nut butters, as long as they don't bother your LO.

    Re: EPing, but baby won't take bottle no

    I know, I'm trying not to worry. Yesterday's total was better - around 22 ounces. He's off to a good start today too. I'm taking the scale back tomorrow, so I'll just have to watch diaper output...

    Re: EPing, but baby won't take bottle no

    So DS has only taken in 18 ounces today. He still has 3 hours left to make a complete 24 hours, but there's no way he'll get even 3 more ounces in that time.

    I've tried supplementing with a...
