  1. Re: Need help with supply and twins! Scared to supplement

    My twins are 8 mos and yeah you're doing awesome! I had to supplement with donor milk from the start in NICU and still worry about supply. Anyway, I don't know if it sounds like you have a huge...

    Re: One year and counting :)

    Happy birthday Ethan!
  3. Re: WE DID IT! 1 year of exclusive breast milk

    Congratulations!!! Happy birthday to your babies, too. I would consider cutting down how long you pump at a session, too.. 12 min vs 15...
  4. Re: 8 month old frequent nurser & "failure to thrive"

    It's not really co-dependent. I mean, co-dependency is an actual problem where somebody needs to be needed and it's a psychologically unhealthy relationship. Your baby needs you. I fall asleep with...
  5. Re: 8 month old frequent nurser & "failure to thrive"

    Are you basically concerned that she won't sleep without you? It sounds normal to me and if you've had wt gain issues I'd keep nursing during the night as much as possible. My twins are 8 mos and...
  6. Re: IUGR baby not gaining - Doc says wean him

    Well, he can ask but you don't have to wean regardless...

    I've been using a lactation aid for 7 mos now, which is why I suggested it or at least feel comfortable bringing it up since I do know...
  7. Re: IUGR baby not gaining - Doc says wean him

    Just a thought, but have you considered topping off at breast with a lactation aid vs bottle since bottles can mess up latch?
  8. Re: IUGR baby not gaining - Doc says wean him

    I'd keep offering the solids. I'd add olive oil to everything, prunes, carrots, anything can get drowned in olive oil. I got 12 oz in 2 weeks on one of my twins who didn't gain in a month that way....

    Re: distractability in 7 mo old

    I worried a ton with DD but not at all after 2 yrs (about my supply). Now my little guy is turning into quite the biter, too! I think he's teething but it's so annoying. DD only bit twice,...

    Re: Target brand milk freezer bags

    They're good. They might leak if you put 6oz+ in them but I always thaw milk in a clean glass container anyway.

    Re: Exercise while breastfeeding

    As long as you eat enough then no, probably not. I ran a marathon when DD was 9 mos and a 50K when she was 15 mos. Didn't do anything to my supply.

    They like solids a lot! They're still getting some donor milk; I had cut it back a little but then my bigger twin stopped gaining wt so this past week I've upped his donor milk and he's feeling...

    Re: distractability in 7 mo old

    Yeah....I did take him back to bed this evening because I was getting so upset and he did OK. I know he's just learning and everything but it makes it hard. Oh well. I just am tired of worrying about...
  14. Re: Blue Cross of Illinois Pump Coverage

    Why don't you call your hospitals and see if they know? They may offer them or know what places do. I also advise you to get a reference number for any conversation with insurance re: pump coverage....

    Re: distractability in 7 mo old

    Yes, they both nurse down to nap and a couple of times during. Right now our cat is right next to us washing his paws and distracting him! Arg. He latches, pops off, latches, off, over and over....

    Re: distractability in 7 mo old

    Any ideas? I just really don't want them to stop gaining or my supply to crash. They have started solids.

    http://newborns.stanford.edu/Breastfeeding/HandExpression.html best video ever on hand expression. Even my IBCLC in the hospital referred me to it (although I had already seen it).

    distractability in 7 mo old

    My one baby is so distracted some times and also fussy at breast and pulls off. I don't know - it halfway feels like a nursing strike but sometimes he just needs a burp. He will stay on more with the...

    Re: Long term nursing strike?!

    You are doing great! I agree on trying to remove emotion. I was very very casual when DD would scream at me. I think it helped.

    Re: Long term nursing strike?!

    It's rare to strike that longbut you can pull through. I think nursing baby while sleeping is key to keep baby semi-oriented to breast. And yes take care of yourself and don't let yourself lie to...

    Do the probiotics contain whey or any milk form? If so that might be a problem. I found a probiotic that was soy and dairy free from Vitacost, I think it was called ABCdophilis or something for...

    Re: Long term nursing strike?!

    Yes, I dealt with a nursing strike that lasted 5 mos and then went on to nurse my daughter until she was 3 yrs, 3 mos. It was very hard but I stuck with it. I got her to nurse during naps when she...
  23. Re: Self-Weaning at 3.5-years; how to say goodbye?

    Re: Do I have to pump?

    I don't think there's a good reason to pump if your baby is removing milk well. Also, family can keep their noses out bc Daddy doesn't have breasts and he can bathe the baby, burp him, rock him and...
