    mountainmama good advice on getting a booth at a retaurant…I hadn’t thought of that. To you ladies that can nurse while walking around a store thats talent! I can do it at home but definitely not while shopping. I use the gerber pads too they don’t stick on me.

    well its official I have mastitis. I felt terrible today and had a fever but I got some antibiotics and tylenol and I’m just going to power through it! Ugh the pain is like when I first started breastfeeding all over again :(. The good news is Kiley started crawling yesterday at 6 months and a half months, watch out word my baby is mobile!

    hi ladies its been a while. I’ve been bf for over 6 months and I’m just now having an issue. I’ve got what appears to be a milk blister from what I’ve googled. Its a hardened white area right under the skin on the nipple. Hurts some when touched. Does anybody know how to get rid of it or how long they last? Thanks

    lauraID that sounds like whats going on. My LO does the same thing with the choking thing and I just give her a burp and she’s fine after that and we continue the feeding.

    Kiley has never had a drop of formula and she is almost 8 months old. She is actually on the smaller side than most babies. She weighs about 16.5-17 lbs now according to our bathroom scale.

    jen if you have the book The Nursing Mothers Companion it has a really detailed section on medications that can pass through breastmilk and whether or not they are safe for baby. Even if you don’t have it I would recommend it to anybody it has been my bible 🙂

    nikki- I have the same problem with my LO and the pediatrician said it was normal to see amounts as big as a couple of tablespoons immediately after feedings or even a couple of hours after. try not to lay the baby down immediately after or any jostling of LO after feeding. i don’t even put my little girl in onesies most of the time since she is…[Read more]

    Thanks for your imput ladies. Its been a difficult journey and I think I’m trying to hold on to something ‘normal’ and we are on our way to weaning and starting this new chapter in our lives.

    ladies watch out for this! A week or so ago someone posted something about getting free nursing covers with a promotion code from uddercovers.com. I looked at the site and it looked legit but I found out it was a scam and people are getting their credit cards compromised. Apparently if it looks too good to be true it really…[Read more]

    expecting~ I wouldn’t think so since you’re probably not pumping in the middle of the night right? Thats at least 6 hours every day of not pumping….

  • EmmaLouLiz replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 4 months ago

    ok strange question….is anyone else getting sharp needle-like pains in their nipples? They don’t last very long but they come and go a few times in the last few days. Anyone?

    to the ladies purchasing udder covers please be advised that while you get your merchandise that website has been known to steal your credit card information. Google udder covers scam. Hope its not going to happen to anyone here.

    venting time— I had a rough night lastnight. I went to lie down on my stomach and I yelled out because my boob hurt really badly. There was a sore to the touch area that was kind of hard but not red or swollen. I’ve never had a blocked duct but I assumed thats what it was. So baby and I were up until 1am nursing on that side and massaging it…[Read more]

    I totally agree and I hope I don’t have any nosey people bugging me about my choices but even already my sister if asking me why I won’t be giving baby any formula. I believe its only because she hasn’t had kids yet. I love being able to nurse at any time without having to deal with formulas or even breastmilk in bottles. Kiley is almost 7…[Read more]
