    Re: Pain down there...?

    I was told if the bleeding increases you are doing too much and to ease up a bit. Had you stopped bleeding before this? Does anything one way or another make it feel better or worse?

    Re: Stress and milk supply

    I would doubt fussyness at the breast is a supply issue. There might just be something else bothering her. In what way is she acting like she is starving?

    I would question starting solids early. Breast milk is the perfect nutrition for your baby. Your body makes it especially for your baby. Cereals are not a complete food. Check out the WHO charts for...

    Re: What should a BF mom be eating

    Everyone who is breastfeeding should supplement omega 3's I would think. My Dr. has me on a double dose, our diets are typically lacking in this and it is hard to actually get enough through diet....
