  1. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    I just wanted to say that I hugely identify with both of these issues. I truly understand exactly where you are coming from. So many of the struggles I had with mothering in the early days stemmed...
  2. Re: 13 month old nurses a million times a day

    I hope that timeline is in your future, too! :) FWIW, we still have rough nights and weeks even at age 2--our nighttime frequency has been on the upswing for the last couple of weeks, because she...
  3. Re: 13 month old nurses a million times a day

    Well, the first 10 months were hard for getting out. Not because of the nursing, but because she was a car seat hater, and I wasn't personally willing to have her screaming just to go places. Once...
  4. Re: Poor weight gain in almost five month old

    It's very possible you just have an undemanding little nursling. How often would you say she is nursing in a 24 hour period?

    If this were my baby, I would immediately start offering to nurse more...
  5. Re: 13 month old nurses a million times a day

    I'm a low storage capacity mom with a toddler who loves nursing, and was seriously the most frequent nurser of any child I'd ever heard of, online, in real life, or otherwise. During the first year,...
  6. Re: 18 mos pump weaning, confused and emotional

    I am a few days late on this, but I was very, very reluctant to pump wean at work myself, primarily because of supply concerns. For any other mom, in almost any other situation, I'm 100% on board...

    Re: 2 years!

    Congrats! My nurseling is two today, so we are sharing this milestone. :)
  8. Re: Increasing supply to meet demands

    The long stretches with no milk removal are, like you said, definitely a hindrance in this situation. There are no 100% guarantees that you will be able to bring in a full milk supply, but...

    Re: 10mo Nursing strike ! Pls help.

    Many antidepressants are safe while nursing. If the OP has any concern whatsoever about it that her physician hasn't satisfactorily addressed, the kind folks over at InfantRisk can definitively...
  10. Re: Any RN mamas have advice for pumping during hospital shi

    I'm not an RN, but I work in the medical field, and I did exactly what mommal described with working on charting/documentation while pumping. I needed to pump 4 times over an 8 hour shift to...
  11. Re: Traveling/Driving Long Distance and Breastfeeding

    Are you planning to drive overnight during your baby's usual long sleep stretch, or during daytime hours? I think if you are traveling at night, and you expect baby to be sleeping, I would simply...
  12. Re: Pumping and bottle-feeding after 1 year

    I think you do whatever makes the most sense for you--in my case, I had already introduced open cups and straw cups for water, but struggled so much to pump that I was not willing to risk losing my...

    Re: 3 bad nights....

    I'd lean toward option A myself based on what you're describing.

    Or, you know, alternatively, it could just be an option G) as well--weird stretch of infant sleep with no discernible reason. My...

    Re: Right Side Completely Dry!

    Great questions from the PP. :)
  15. Re: allergies antihistamines ovulation and supply

    I just firstly want to say that I think your pump output is AMAZING for a 17 month old nursling! You rock!

    Your pumping output variation also sounds pretty normal to me, and I would hesitate to...
  16. Re: drop in supply during "that" time of month

    Okay, I would definitely recommend adding and keeping a third session. I would also suggest that you ALWAYS double pump--the simultaneous stimulation will really help you yield more milk than just...
  17. Re: Pls help me, Veteran nursers! 9.5mo nursing issues.

    The above shared Kellymom link for biting is a good resource. My personal experience with biting is that I saw results by calmly, quietly saying "you don't want to nurse? Okay, let's find something...
  18. Re: Pumping while at Work-Supply Dropping!

    That's a pretty long nighttime stretch with no milk removal, and that's what jumps out to me in this scenario. Is this sleep stretch one your baby has naturally fallen into, or is it something you...
  19. Re: drop in supply during "that" time of month

    I'm sorry you're having such a tough time, mama!

    So, what I would ask is, how long are your work separations generally? Two pumping sessions a day sounds a little bit low to me for the average...
  20. Re: 23 lb. 4 month old EBF.. Is this normal?

    I had a very difficult time with pants for my child when she was an infant. She was too big for the infant sizes, but almost all toddler sized pants were just longer and LEANER, which is not what we...

    Re: Thoughts on breastfeeding

    I think it is very hard to know for sure if your low libido is 100% due to breastfeeding. What I mean to say is, yes, the decreased estrogen levels of a nursing mother may be associated with a...

    Re: We've hit 3 years! :D

    Congratulations! What a wonderful new milestone to have reached!
  23. Re: Emotionally difficult time pump weaning

    My long term goals are essentially to let her lead the way. I have no end date or end game in mind, I have no nursing aversions or desire to limit her nursing in any way at this point in time. I...
  24. Re: Period Return and Low Milk Supply

    How many times over the work day are you pumping? Whether it's due to your period, a pump slump, or something else entirely, the best way to get over a hit in supply is to increase your demand. Can...
  25. Re: Emotionally difficult time pump weaning

    No issues nursing at home. The usual post-work nursing session, the usual very frequent evening nursing. A lot of extra overnight nursing, but she had a fever last night and I believe that to be...
