    Re: Night nursing a kid with teeth

    Once I started getting my period again, I noticed a slight dip in supply about 1-2 days before, lasting about 4-5 days. Just be sure to drink enough water and you should bounce right back, I think.

    Re: Mastitis? Or something else?

    I don't really feel sick, just tired. I don't know what a plug would feel like but I'm hoping that's the case. It does seem to make it better when I pump and nurse off that side. Thanks for the...

    I think that mine was fussing at the breast for at least a solid month and probably more like two. It got to the point where she would only eat from a bottle but now I'm able to nurse anywhere I want...

    Re: Sore breast but no lump..

    Something similar has happened to me before. My breast really hurt to touch and during nursing but had no heat/lumps/etc. It especially hurt during let-down.

    Re: I need words of encouragement

    Wow! I wouldn't be worried if he has almost tripled his birth weight. It sounds like he just loves his mama most and I don't see anything wrong with that. You do what you know is best in your heart....
