  1. Re: 13 month old - asks for more frequent feeding

    Your post is exactly what I'm going through. I guess the question I have for you is the same I have for myself. How long do I/you intend to breastfeed?

    I have a 12-1/2 mo. old son, who has always...

    Re: new to group, looking for advice

    I love Dr's and I love medicine, but nothing is better than an experienced, well trained LC! That's who you need to follow up with after your Dr. My LC can look at my nipple and tell me how my son...

    Re: Is My Nursing Over???

    Thank you! Thank you for your support, and advice. I'm just afraid that letting him sleep during the night, and going so long w/out nursing has affected the supply. The weight loss happened before my...

    Re: Is My Nursing Over???

    Fenugreek is 4pills 3x a day. (I smell great lol) He's eating solids 3x a day, but not in huge amounts. I make his baby food, or grind up some of what we are eating, and I don't know the amount.

    Re: nipple confusion or shallow latch?

    I used the shield for 4 months. My LO's mouth was big enought to take the nipple without pain/soarness after that. Don't be afraid to use the shield, it's WAY better than formula and bottles, and...

    Re: Disney World and breastfeeding?

    I JUST did a Disney World trip, and nursed my 9mo old the ENTIRE TIME. Anywhere, anytime. I just used a blanket. With that being said, we also went with friends of our, and their 15mo old. She nurses...
  12. Re: how do I get my supply back in one breast?

    The same happened to me. I suggest offering that breast FIRST at all times. Then offer the other side if baby wants more, and you LO most likely will. Then put the pump on it for at least 15min every...
  13. Re: medication for sinus while breastfeeding

    From what I understand, pretty much anything. HOWEVER I found that ANY type of "dry up your itchy/stuffy nose" medication DRIED up my milk.

    I took claritin on a daily basis, and could only get 2oz...

    Re: breastfeeding a six-month-old

    You sound JUST like me. However, add a skinny baby, a nipple shield, and it's my story. lol ... Sounds like your LO is going through a 6mo growth spurt. My DS is not a comfort feeder, he gets in and...
  15. Re: Abstract goes against every bit of wisdom LLL teaches about weight gain!

    My LLL rep told me that b/c I had too much foremilk, that DS might gain more weight. Not b/c it has more fat, but b/c it has more sugar. So, it does make sense. They need the hind for brain...

    DS feeds on demand, however, his demand is decreasing. He's going longer w/out feeding at night, as well as during the day. I feel like he's starting to wean himself. How many times a day is it...

    Re: Leaking when let down occurs

    Still happens to me, everytime. Gets expensive. I started using a washcloth or burp cloth when I'm at home. The re-usable nursing pads seem to not absorb well. The milk always leaks down them.

    Re: Number of Ounces in Bottles?

    Everytime DS has a pumped bottle of milk, he drinks it so fast, he cries and cries for more. He only spits it up later. I switched to the Heberman nipple, from medela. It changed everything. It feeds...

    Re: Nipple Shields??

    I did the same. Also, I would follow a daytime feed w/ a pacifier. I realized DS needed to suckle, even after the milk was emptied. DS would drink until the milk finished letting down, then fuss. I...

    Re: milk supply

    I agree, renting one would be a great option! Also, pick ONE time a day, doesn't matter what time, and pump and "extra" session. Follow your E2H pumping, but add, say a 9pm pump between your...
