    Violet: my daughter and I both went through thrush as well…. Sooo painful! We were given the liquid medication to squirt in Ali’s mouth and to put on my breasts 4 times a day. In addition to that I would take some gauze, wrapped my index finger with it and dipped it in the medication….. & get to ‘scrubbing’. I would rub the gauze on the inside…[Read more]

    ELLIEL: I would start with just 5 minutes and then see what happens. I can get a lot a milk in 5 minutes so you may find that it’s too much and leaving baby with not enough – then drop it to 3 or 4 minutes. How long after you get home do you feed her? You could also pump all of your milk as soon as you get home or right before you leave for…[Read more]

    STORM: That is soooo funny! Ali and I also kicked DH out of the bed a couple of months back – he doesn’t mind but I was feeling horrible about it! He says it’s easier to sleep in the guest room because he has to get up so early (4:30am)…. Now that I’m not the only one I don’t feel so bad! 🙂

    For the moms that are pumping…. just wondering about how many ounces everyone is getting and how old their babies are. My daughter is 14wks and I recently came back to work. I’m pumping during the day and breastfeeding when I get home and through the night. I get anywhere from 3-5 ounces every 2-3hrs and I’m wondering if that’s ok

    Liza: don’t mean to scare you but it is totally possible to get pregnant while ur breastfeeding just like u can have a period…. I have had mine since the beginning. I would definately take a pregnancy test, especially if ur using the pull out method. Jamee: pumping before u have the baby will not bring ur milk in. What u have right now is…[Read more]

    ok I know this question has been asked over and over again (sorry!) but I’m heading out to the store & need to get some malted milk (my supply dropped tremendously…I was pumping 10-15ounces while at work, now only 5 or 6) & need to know what to get. Not sure what I’m looking for.. powder? liquid? any details on how to take it would be…[Read more]

    iamjustmeforme: How long did it take for you see an increase in milk?

  • Belly replied to the topic in the forum Group logo of Trying To ConceiveTrying to Conceive Forum 3 years, 4 months ago

    I’m pumping for 15-10 min and only getting 1-1 1/2 oz. I’m trying to pump more often but have seen no results yet. This morning I pumped at 6:30am & got 2oz after feeding the baby from one breast. then at 8am & got 1 1/2oz and just now at 10:30a & got another 1 1/2 oz. So where before I would’ve had 5-10oz by now, I only have 3 oz … ggrrrr!…[Read more]

    my dh drinks the carnation instant breakfast in the am and I just find it to be too thick for my taste but I did just drink the malted milk and I really like the flavor of it! (yeah, I’m a weirdo!) I was expecting it to be nasty but I do like it! lol

    kym & campimama: thank you Ladies!! I bought the malted milk and I’m going to start taking it tonight…. hopefully I can get my supply back up. I’ve been trying to pump more often at work for the past couple of days but that alone hasn’t helped. how long do you take it for? Oh and I figured I can take it with soy milk (just started drinking it)…[Read more]

    Kym: I just started taking the carnation malted milk last night (is it 2 a day?, how long does it take to see results?) and I have fenugreek at home that I never took (bought it early on just in case but never needed it). Is it ok to mix both?

    JESS: If you have a double door fridge your milk will last 3 months in the freezer and 6mths in a deep freezer!
