Re: New here with a few questions! :) Vit. D, supply, durati
If you feel weird about it then you can get your baby out into sunshine instead of giving the drops. I supplement during the winter, but not during the summer. My son has fairly light skin, so I bring him outside every day (between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.) in just shorts then after 10-15 minutes I put a shirt and some sunscreen on him. If your baby's skin is darker, then he will need more sunlight exposure. If you live somewhere that is warm year round, then you might not need to supplement at all. However if you bundle up in the winter, then you should consider vitamin D supplementation during that time.

I didn't anticipate feeling like this but the thought of someone else feeding him and giving him a bottle freaks me out too! Must be new mom jitters and I hope I can loosen up a little.
Sounds to me like you are doing great!
Anyways, once we came home from hosp 3 days later I have been ebf. I got spooked but 5 weeks later I think we are doing ok!
You can donate it. You can freeze it in an ice cube tray to make "momcicles" which are great in a mesh feeder during teething. You can cook/bake with it.
I was wondering what people did with their pumped breast milk if they didn't end up giving it to thier baby?
I've had a few blebs, but only one at a time. I get them occasionally from pumping for too long. They are always quite painful for me, and I always poke them with a sterilized needle to clear them out and relief follows quickly after that. Could the spots just be little bits of dead skin? I got a little bit of that on my nipples in the beginning. That didn't hurt nearly as much as a bleb.
does anyone else have little white spots on end of nipples? thinking they are blebs and they come and go- hurt a little and then not...
