  1. Heartbroken - 2nd Time Around w/ OALD/Oversupply

    Sorry for the long winded, rambling post ... I'm incredibly emotional right now (and not solely because of this issue, but other crummy family stuff).

  4. Re: reading my baby's hunger signs

    How old is your little one? It sounds like he's having a hard time dealing with your OALD/Oversupply. It may be that he's started to associate nursing with the unpleasantness of the forceful let down...

  11. Re: Are lentils a good food for baby?

    The husks are fairly soft ... not at all "tough" like a black bean for example. And smaller varieties will have the husks removed, like the common red lentil. Here is more info on them. :) There are...
