    esther804- just because your baby is only eating for 10-15 mins doens’t mean it ins’t getting enough ๐Ÿ™‚ I was really worried when my son was only eating for 5mins at a time so I was making him eat every hour. now he is five months old and he still only nurses for 5 mins. but he eats every two hours and sleeps through the night. good luck ๐Ÿ™‚

    aprilrose- I take domperidone and I love it. it works fantastic and it allows me to pump and store tons of milk for when I return to work. I dont even need to take the full daily dose for it to work so my pills last WAY longer which is nice.

    angelle1971 – I bought the Lansanoh one from Walmart for about 50.00. it works great for me I have been pumping and feeding for 5 months. However lots of women have trouble pumping so if you decide to pump do it first thing in the morning and then after each feeding to keep up wiht your milk and to get more milk. If you pump first thing you will…[Read more]

    I have health problems so I am on a fat free diet. and I BF. as soon as I started my ‘diet’ my health problems got better and I felt healthier.. I also lost 30 lbs fast. now I feel great. I dont get to much exercise I just cut out the crap…. GOOD LUCK ๐Ÿ™‚ I wouldn’t stop BFing though since it helps burn calories ๐Ÿ™‚

    letty005 -my baby is 5 months and i still use Nipple Sheilds so that he will be able to breast feed. He just never really got the hang of it. I would suggest those for when your at home pumping is different from BF and you will have a better chance of building up your milk if he is atleast latching on a few times a day.

    toveandbrody – I was looking into donating some. I am on pills for it and now I have tons. I can pump about 64oz a day so I have been freezing it. But I dont need that much and my baby doesn’t eat near that much. I live in Canada though and I am having trouble finding out how to go about donating it and I keep forgetting to ask my dr.

    msbree- my baby is four months and drinks for exactly 5 mins on one side every 2 hours and sleeps through the night…. and i love it that he eats fast ๐Ÿ™‚ feeding him a bottle takes like 20 mins he hardly gets bottles for that reason and his time beween feedings is the same either way.
