  2. Re: Bottles and nipples advice for returning to work

    Thanks Erin, I love that she is able to do this too! She will be living with us for two months, so on two days when I work from home I'll be able to feed her then hand her back to mum. Unfortunately...
  3. Re: Bottles and nipples advice for returning to work

    Thanks!

    I'm not sure what my breastmilk flow is, but I have had issues with spray and oversupply which is under control now (well I still spray and leak a ton but manageable). She's taking the...

    Re: Spray

    We had our 2month apt with the pediatrician and she continues to gain a consistent half pound every week (now 10lb 13oz and 22.5 inches), so I'm feeling good that any possible oversupply or oald...
  6. Re: Painfully pulling off nipple when done??

    When I can tell my baby is about to do this I push my breast into her face so she cannot pull off and has to unclamp.

    Re: Spray

    Thank you again!

    So I decided to stop my 2am pump for the first time last night and nursed at 9pm and we both (baby girl and I) slept until 4am. She nursed on both sides (I was very hard and...

    Re: Spray

    I have had overproduction, engorgement and fast letdown issues since week 2, but they were being managed. Then after I was able to drop the nipple shield the major leaking and spray started. The...

    Re: Spray

    Thanks!
    I pump once a day (in the middle of the night 2am ) for 5 minutes to prepare for when I go back to work and because I get painfully rock hard if it goes past 4 hours and I noticed that...

    Spray

    I've finally gone 3 days without using the nipple shield and now all of a sudden every time baby unlatches it sprays in many directions and as far I'd say as 2 feet and doesn't stop until I put a...

    Re: Breast pain

    I see my lactation consultant every Friday at a breastfeeding social group at my hospital...she thinks I should relax, continue to work on the engorgement and use ice after nursing to sooth the pain....
  13. Re: Effect on supply when baby sleeps longer

    No advise, but I can relate! I'm a FTM and My baby started doing this at 4 weeks also ( she's 5 weeks today). It was very uncomfortable physically and mentally, but so far the breasts are slowly...

    Re: Breast pain

    I do get tingles when I have a let down, but maybe you can get both feelings of tingles and pain?

    My nipples, temp and baby's health are fine so I'm sure we don't have an infection. Baby is...

    Re: Breast pain

    No, the nipple is fine, well it gets sore when she latches wrong and I have to keep fixing her (working on transitioning off the nipple shield). I don't think she has thrush, lips and mouth look...

    Breast pain

    When I nurse on my right side I get this sharp pain in the inside of my breast (area between my nipple and sternum). When she is not nursing the area is still sore, but more of an ache. It is...
  18. Re: Didn't need the shield yesterday why do I need it today?

    Thanks! I guess I just needed to hear that to take some of the pressure off...I won't give up but it's good to know it's ok. Breastfeeding is just so important to me, I was never breastfed and I feel...
  19. Re: Didn't need the shield yesterday why do I need it today?

    Is it okay if she never breaks the nipple shield habit? I mean can I still breastfeed for a year (my personal goal) if she always needs it?

    I'm okay, wouldn't even say I have the baby blues, it's...

    Re: Managing oversupply and the pain

    I just wanted to emphasize from experience what the previous poster said about pumping a little, but not too much to help with engorgement. I made this mistake until I talked to my lactation...
  21. Re: Didn't need the shield yesterday why do I need it today?

    Thanks, it's great to know I'm not the only one, it feels that way sometimes...

    I find when I do a quick pump or spend time getting my nipple prepped that once it goes into baby mouth it...
  22. Didn't need the shield yesterday why do I need it today?

    When my baby was born at 38 weeks at 6lbs7oz she latched on right away, then two days later jaundice kicked in and she became too weak and lost too much weight. I was still in the hospital and the...
