  1. Milk smells different after being frozen. Not a sour smell.

    The milk just smells off when I defrost it. I can't tell if it's the smell of the plastic storage bags or what. It doesn't smell like it's sour or spoiled, just different compared to the fresh. ...

    Re: Water: to give or not to give?

    I agree, water isn't necessary yet. When I was out and about the other day my baby had hiccups and a lady started saying to her in baby talk "Oh, mommy's gotta get you some water" over and over and...

    Re: So Frustrated (again)

    She just turned 3 months old. Her latch has been slowly improving for a while now. It used to be unbearable to let her nurse. When her latch was much better I was still having a lot of pain and...

    So Frustrated (again)

    Re: Almost 3 months!

    I've been wanting to respond for a couple of days now, but work and baby have been keeping me super busy!

    Almost 3 months!

    We're approaching the 3 month mark, which is hard for me to believe! I'm surprised I survived breastfeeding this long with all of the challenges along the way. Just had a few questions, these...

    Re: Back to Work

    I was pumping every 2 to 3 hours when it was too painful for her to breastfeed. I got about 2oz from each side give or take, but I haven't pumped in a few weeks so I'm not sure what I'm putting out...

    Re: 5 weeks old and tongue-tied

    My baby had a minor posterior tongue tie. The doctor didn't think it was bad enough to cause issues with eating and speech, but I went ahead and got it corrected anyway because of the breastfeeding...
  15. Re: Question about finishing the first breast first

    Thanks for responding so quickly, I'm glad it's nothing to worry about. I'm just puzzled by the fact that at times she is sucking away and not getting anything, but it's definitely there. She's...
  16. Question about finishing the first breast first

    Things have been getting better for us. I'm now exclusively breastfeeding since the pain has gotten better. We still have some things to work on (getting her to open wide every time is a big one),...

    I have been doing breast compressions. I feel empty when she's done, but I still fear losing my supply because she's not nursing correctly. I can't go by output and weight gain yet as she was...
