    Hi girls! i have a question about how long your little ones breast feed. Mine just seems to be a speed nurser. I was conserned at first that she might not be draining me thoughorly but after a couple nursing sessions i pumped and i got nothing. She usually is on each breast 5-10minutes. Pulls off on her own. I read on the LaLegcheLeague…[Read more]

    ok, have any of you tried brewers yeast? I heard that helps too. I really am not appealing to the idea of smelling like maple syrup:P

    misz-cashis-april09 – My boobs were ENORMOUS when my milk first came in. They seriously looked like canteloupes! I’m a generally small chested person so my hubby was like…DAMN! The engorgement will go down. Just try to get your little man to feed as often as possible. If this is your first, your nipples will be pretty sore for a bit, dont…[Read more]

    I have a question….i read in a book that you can’t mix different days of expressed milk. Like, I pump 4 oz. on Monday and then 3oz. on Tuesday, does that mean that i cant combine those two days to make a full 7oz bottle? If so, then why?

    Hi Ladies…My LO is 12months old and she has been running a temp since Thursday and has almost NO appetite at all. At first I thought it was her teeth but on Saturday she was so lethargic and irritable, all she wanted was to be held. She is normally a really active/talkative baby. Babbling, cooing, crawling all over the place, cruising along…[Read more]

    tommiesmommy – Is that the stuff that makes your sweat smell like maple syrup? I thought i read that somewhere, or was that a different herb?

  • DulcianasMom replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 7 months ago

    Do any of you have the ‘expression bustier’? I saw it online and it looked really cool so i bought one. I pump after almost every feed and it can be a pain when it ties up both your hands and this was a hands free ‘pumping bra’. Just wanted some opinions if any of you ladies have purchased one of these.

    I read somewhere that a breastfed baby that sucks on her hands means she’s not getting enough milk? I dont get that at all!? My LO is about 3months old and REFUSES a pacifier, if she wants to suck, she sucks on her hands. I do notice that she does this after feedings but she seems well satisfied. Just wondering if she likes to suck but doesnt…[Read more]

    kirbys2nd – Did you start your period? I noticed with my middle child that once my period came back that my supply really dwindled. I tried Blessed Thistle and Fenugreek but it didn’t help that much. Then when she was about 10months old I got a nasty stomach virus and that just about wiped it comepltely out 🙁 It sucked 🙁 Good luck and…[Read more]

    Thanks for all your input on the birth control question:) I would like to get an IUD when i can but when i tried to get one after my firstborn, the doc said he couldnt put it in without doing an outpatient visit to dialate my cervix cause i was too tilted. I’m going to revisit the issue just to see and also cause i have a different doc this time…[Read more]

    I have an issue and its related to breastfeeding but more along the lines of older siblings. Here’s the deal….I have breastfeed my LO since birth, she is 8months old now. I have a 4yr old daughter as well. Before the baby was born I was candid and truthful with my oldest about how mommy would feed the baby. Naturally, in the beginning there…[Read more]

    I have a question. Are there any of you ladies that only breastfeed, NO pumping? Like SAHM’s? And really my question is if and when you do pump, do you not get alot? I lost my job a month or so ago and basically quit pumping b/c i already have SO much stored breastmilk in deep freeze. But i’ve noticed that if i do pump, i’m reallly not…[Read more]

    I have been breastfeeding my LO since birth and she is 7 months old now. We introduced solids around 5months and she is doing very well with that. I still nurse 4-5 times a day but my period return shortly after we started solids. Here’s my question, for those of you still BF and you HAVE gotten your period back, has it been irregular? I had 2…[Read more]

    Hi girls:) I saw a post from a few days ago about using malt as a boost for your milk supply. Do you mean Carnation Malted Milk? And do you make a glass of malted milk and just drink that or do you prefer to eat the powder? Just wondering cause we already have a ton of that in the house and i like malted milk to begin with so if it really did…[Read more]
