• psychicx-I had an older sister with this who died an hour after birth. It was never detected, but she was born tn 1986 also. I did a medical research paper on this topic and the findings were inconclusive. There wasn’t enough evidence supporting surgery, vs. no surgery, vs. surgery while still in th ewomb, if diagnosed soon enough. I did my…[Read more]

    How can I tell if my son is weaning himself? He is 11.5 months old and just seems over it unless it’s before a nap or bed. I keep reading that a low milk supply might be the reason, well if that is the reason it’s because he hasn’t taken to it the last few day so how do I correct that? I feel like he looses patients because it take so long for a…[Read more]

    I pumped for the first time this morning and got a total of 6oz after Noah ate….BUT I sucked it all out of me and he wanted to eat soon after and there wasn’t anything. Bad idea, maybe I’ll start put pumping on the boob he just ate off of? Do you all think that would help or should I just not pump for as long?

  • BabyCarter replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 8 months ago

    Emma, so sorry for your loss! I think you should do whatever makes it easier on the both of you. Should I be pumping both boobs or just the one he feeds on after he’s all done?

  • BabyCarter replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 8 months ago

    I’ve heard that at the end of the feeding is where your hind milk is and that’s the fatty milk that fills the baby up. is there a possibility that with pumping I’m pumping that out and my baby isn’t getting it and that’s why he’s nursing more? OR is there a 5 week growth spirt? Can someone explain the ‘stages’ of your milk to me I’m confused I…[Read more]

    I thought your nipples were wupposed to toughen up. after 5 1/2 weeks I thought I was doing great, but this morning my nipple is soooo sore! I tried to pump, because I’m pumping in the morning and freexing it, and I had to stop right away because it hurt so bad. I;ve only had to use the lanolin a few times, but this morning is one of them! Does…[Read more]

    I’m pumping so that Daddy can give Noah a bottle at night and I can sleep for more than 2 hrs just once a day, but I don’t like that I’m going 4 hras between feeding or longer and I wake up wet. It only worked 1 night anyway and I want to breastfeed him and not give him the bottle. The problem is that in 3 or so mos I will have to go back to work…[Read more]

    When is a good time to behin pumping? I know eventually I will have to and it would be nice to start a stock pile in my freezer, but I don’t want to make more milk than I need to right now. Do I pump the opposite breast after he’s done feeding on one? I’m not sure about the whole pump thing.

    Is anyone’s lo really sensitive to spicy and garlicy foods when you eat it? Noah is really gassy and fussy after I eat anything with loads of flavor is there anything I can do?

    My LO has started this very interesting habbit, but only does it sometimes. While nirsing he will pull away and get really angry that he has stopped feeding, Sometimes he pulls my nipple with him, which isn’t comfortable for me, but its like a fight to get him fed and I end up soaked in the end. I think sometimes it’s becuase my milk is shooting…[Read more]

    Question- my milk is definitely in and my baby has latched and all is going very well. I know he isn’t eating enough to empty each breast at each feeding, should I be pumping the reaminder out? I’m not in any discomfort and I don’t plan on introducing the bottle anytime soon. I just don’t want to develop an infection or something, anyone know?
