    Re: RSV medication

    I agree with Andrea's suggestion to ask more questions, but also be aware that the strain of RSV going around this year is extremely aggressive and that for a LO who was a preemie it is even more...

    Re: Soy vs. Cow's milk

    K isn't weaned, but she does get other beverages. She can't have cow's milk though, so she gets fortified rice milk instead. It's fortified with A, D, B12 and Calcium. The ones from Trader Joe's...

    Re: Need Thoughts

    Weaning is such a long process when you let the LO lead the way. I've never considered what I'm doing weaning since I am in no way limiting the amount that K nurses, but once you've introduced...

    Re: Anyone else sick to their stomach??

    Are you eating? If you're not keeping yourself nourished, it can make you feel nauseated. I know it's easy to forget to eat when you feel like you're always playing catch-up!

    This may give you...
  5. Re: Any success with The First Years "Breastflow" Bottles??

    The few times I had to have a bottle for Kesiah, we used this one and it was a great success with no balking on her part or latch problems for either of us.

    It also requires both suction and...

    Re: Unable to breastfeed?

    Wow, you've really been through a lot. :hug

    Re: Okay...prunes vs. plums?

    Nope, they're the same thing :) It's a marketing thing. Prunes have a low appeal factor due to them being associated with old farts who can't poop. So re-name them "dried plums" and foodies are...

    Re: How much water

    The LLL leaders always say "drink to thirst and eat to hunger." While we're all supposed to get eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day, nursing or not, getting less than that won't effect your supply...

    Re: Quaker Oat Meal

    The regular Quaker Oats don't have anything in them but oats :) The flavored packets have all kinds of extra junk in them that you don't want, no matter what brand it is.

    Re: not sure what not to eat?

    There are no foods that breastfeeding mamas need to avoid as a rule. Gassy foods don't cause your baby to be gassy. Gas from broccoli, cabbage and beans for instance, is caused by the indigestible...

    Re: Cherioes - LO likes them too much

    Personally, I wouldn't worry too much about it. It can take up to 20 tries before a new food is accepted. Plus, at 11 months, baby is still getting their real nutrition from bm still, so you don't...

    The clinical version of "through the night" is 5 to 6 hours. MY definition is more in line with Julieh's. DD clinically slept through the night one time at around 3 months. Then it was another 7...

    I would think that your shower would have cleared any bacteria out, but just to put your mind at ease, why not hand-express some milk and rub it on your nipple & let it...

    Re: can you breastfeed with pinkeye?

    You can literally squirt bm right into your LO's eye if they have it. Or if your aim isn't that hot, express some and use a dropper. That would also be the method for getting it into your eye :)
