    Re: I need some advice/opinions.

    Those links are great. Can you offer to nurse before every bottle, then pump after every bottle? that should help up your supply. I exclusively pumped with the pump in style, but I hear hospital...
  2. Re: Must pull my hair with her feet

    So putting it in a braid is okay, although she pulls out the hair at the base of my neck. I just have to find time to actually DO it! She has a stuffed lemur and sometimes she will wear it with her...
  3. Must pull my hair with her feet

    My DD2 is 13 months old and she thinks my hair is a security blanket. She sucks her thumb and twirls it and while nursing she is determined to twirl her feet in it as well. My hair is breaking like...
  4. Re: Short Infrequent Nursing and Thumbsucking

    Yay, well it's good to hear that your little one does the same thing and is gaining fine. I really should go get her weighed.
  5. Short Infrequent Nursing and Thumbsucking

    My almost 4 month old has been very fussy at the breast for the last few days. She has only been nursing for 5-10 minutes about 7 times a day. Most of those instances are in the morning. ...

    Re: back to the breast as a toddler

    My DD weaned when my colostrum came in. She was about 18 months and by the time the baby came she had forgotten how to latch. She asks for milk every week or so, and tried to latch on, but she gags...

    Re: Milk Supply Question

    I had similar problems with my first. We had to supplement formula at first because she wasn't gaining weight and I didn't have much milk. We had other issues going on too. I was able to...

    Re: Milk Supply Question

    It is totally possible to increase your supply at 8 weeks! I know of moms who relactate well after that. First, pumps are not as good as your baby at removing milk. (I exclusively pumped for 3...
  9. Re: soon to be momma with a question

    I didn't even get bigger when my milk DID come in, and I was all panicked because I thought I had to be engorged to feed my dd.

    I desperately wanted to breastfeed and I had some major setbacks,...

    Re: Callin all cosleepers

    We have co-slept since birth with my now 17 month old. We nightweaned a couple months ago ( I am pregnant and just couldn't do it anymore). I would not have night weaned if it wasn't driving me up...

    Re: what do I say?

    I just wanted to pop in here and say kudos for EPing for so long. I EPed for 3 months, and then my dd started breastfeeding full time. It can be so difficult, and I hated feeling so alone. I...
  13. Re: Tongue - Tie and Latch-- Need Help / Stories

    We dealt with tongue tie too, only we had just barely gotten it clipped at 6 weeks and she wouldn't latch at all at that point. We are still nursing now at 16 months, so stick in there!

  14. Re: LO has oral thrush, but I don't?? Is it possible??

    The reason yogurt is recommended is because it has acidophilus which is a probiotic in it. Probiotics are the good bacteria, that antibiotics wipe out with the bad bacteria. The good bacteria are...
  15. Re: Breastfeeding and weight loss... what a joke!

    I gained about 40 lbs during the pregnancy and about 20 of it was gone after the first few weeks, but then it took another 4 months to lose another 10, and I am still working on the last 10 and my dd...

    Re: weaning at 11 months?

    I have the same question! My DD is 11 months tomorrow and she is nursing fewer and fewer times. She doesn't use a paci or sippy cup though. She self feeds and gets some water at meal times.:shrug
  17. Re: restarting bfeeding - is it possible

    It is totally possible, it is great that she is still latching! Sometimes reflux is part of a milk allergy, so if you are nursing and cutting milk out of your diet the reflux might go away. Seven...

    Re: Is this premature weaning?

    AHHHHHH! I'm bawling my eyes out now. I love the poem. I think I am going to print it out. I'm glad to know I am not the only one who struggles with this.

    Re: is it possible?

    YES it IS possible.

    I don't have a lot of personal experience with getting your supply back, but I do know about getting a baby with bottle preference back to the breast. We pumped and bottle fed...

    Is this premature weaning?

    I am worried that my 10 month old DD is too into solid food. She is nursing less now, less often and less time each session. We used to nurse every 1- 1 1/2 hours for about 20 minutes or more. ...

    Re: Her teeth are hurting me!

    I'll have to try rinsing with water, lansinoh makes me itch. If I latch her on perfectly it hurts less, but still a little. Nights are the worst because we are both half asleep and I wake up with...

    Her teeth are hurting me!

    DD has 4 cute little teeth now. When the bottom two came in nursing was a little sore, but after a few days we both got used to the new additions. Her top teeth have been in for almost two weeks,...
  23. Re: Is there a reason why I shouldn't eat peanut butter?

    Everything reliable that I have read and heard says that unless you notice a reaction to a food, or if someone in the family is allergic, there is no reason to restrict your diet at all while BF.

    We had thrush for a while, we tried diflucan, vinegar, diet changes, and probiotics which helped for a while but then it came back. I started washing all the underwear and diapers with hot water...
