    First of all, yay! I get to post in the Infant forum as my DD is 4.5 months old, lol.

    Re: Night nursing (4.5 month old)

    Aww... I say keep nursing the little one for that feeding. When it's many night feedings, it gets exhausting. But just one feeding? This is a special moment when your little one is thinking of...
  3. Re: Breastfeeding, antibiotics & expressing question

    I think there must be some alternative to the metrogyl you have been prescribed. There exist literally hundreds of diferrent antibiotics. Please call your doctor ASAP so you can switch to another one...
  4. Re: Confused about using both breasts

    My baby had only been taking 1 side at each feed for the first 4 months. Now for the first time she is taking both, but I can tell she is not "finishing" the second side. My son pretty much was...

  7. Re: Help! Milk supply dropping fast after going back to work

    You need to take a "milk day" or two, or three, whatever you are able.

    This means taking off from work and just nursing baby directly the whole day. It is very hard to increase your supply...

    Re: freezer stash question

    This depends on lots of factors including mom's supply and work schedule especially part or full time. For me since I'm pretty much full time, I like a larger stash. Things are going great now (4...

    Re: starting to panic!

    Soblessed, just want you to know that I am right there in the same boat as you. I had a violent case of food poisoning with vomiting every 20 minutes for 12 hours straight. I kept no liquids down...
  10. Re: Baby refuses bottles - help please!

    I'm so sorry about your situation. I was there just a few weeks ago. I posted about this recently, and have chipped and pasted my success post here. Although we finally got her to take a bottle, ...

    Re: Help increasing milk supply!

    The reason your milk supply has dropped is most likely from reasons unrelated to the birth control or your period. Likely your milk supply has dropped due to one of the other common reasons milk...
  12. Re: Swollen Nipple/Areola/Breast - Pumping

    I'm so glad you tried nursing it the plugged duct. I have been there, done that with my first child. It war only then that I truly believed that pumping was not as effective as nursing. I tried...
  13. Re: Pumping supplies need to be sterilized each time?

    Okay, that's what's I was doing as well. For example, if the pump parts fell on the floor or if the oldest kid put them in his mouth. Thanks!

    Re: Milk reserves

    100% you have not ruined your milk supply by not pumping that one time. Even if you had missed a handful of sessions, you still would be just fine. Producing 2 ounces after 2 sessions is great.
  15. Re: Pumping supplies need to be sterilized each time?

    Is it recommended to sterilize pump parts at all after the initial sterilization? If you diligently wash pump parts with soap and water after returning home from work each day, is it necessary to...

    Re: increasing supply

    Wanted to give you another ray of hope: I am another success story when it comes to increasing a dwindling milk supply. I actually have had oversupply with both of my kids (8-9 oz every 4 hrs), so...

    Re: How to sleep for BF working mom

    :) Although I realize this could exacerbate my slight oversupply, I sometimes have to pump in the morning because sleepy-pants DD is snoozing away next to me in bed.
  20. Poll: Re: How much time does your baby nurse at every session?

    Both of my kids nursed for 10 minutes each session as newborns and 5 minutes after about week 8. This is if they are awake. If they doze off after nursing, maybe 5 minutes more.

    Re: How to sleep for BF working mom

    No mom should feel bad about whether baby sleeps in the family bed or in a crib. Different things work for different families, and even for different babies within the same family.
