  • Miamimom- I went to Disney World when my L/O was 2 months old and b/f her the whole time too. I had my shall, and I wlaked around feeding her. I felt so bad for all the moms who did not have one, it was a windy day and their blankets kept falling off their sholders:( but I was also happy to see all the moms who were breast feeding!! It’s the only…[Read more]

  • Jacque- breast milk is only good for 7 days in the fridge. It’s good for 6 months in a regular freezer and 1 year in a deep freezer. I have found that if my breast milk sits for more than 3 months in our deep freezer of regular freezer my baby wont eat it. I have tasted it and the taste of my breast milk changes and its grose. So it’s really up to…[Read more]

  • Campimama,I have been working really hard on getting my L/O to drink out of a sippy cup. She hates it, but it’s getting better.…[Read more]

  • Liseth82- it sounds like you are doing everything you can. I know it stings and hurts but try to massage the breast and feed on that side until your milk will let down(if it will). Are you just talking about a duct or the whole breast? If its just a duct then press the lump into to the nipple it hurts but it’s really effective. If your anxious…[Read more]

  • I have a question for those of you who have been b/f for a while….. Have any of you gotten your period yet?? And if you have when did you get yours back?? My little girl is almost 6 months and I have not had a period yet. I love not having it, but just wanted to know when I might get it back.

  • I have posted this questions a few times on here and nobody will help me, so I guess I will give it one more try. My daughter is going to be 1 next month and I want to wean her off the breast. But I want to do it in a painless way. I purduce a lot of milk and when I get engorged it always clogs a duct. I know that their is a pill to dry your milk…[Read more]

  • Oh, I warm mine up by running it under warm water or by letting it sit the the fridge. I do that with my refridgerated milk as well. I don’t trust a pan….. If you ever use a microwave just know that it kills all the nutrients in breast milk so your baby is really just drinking water. Pluss you get hot spots and you can burn your babies mouth.…[Read more]

    Seansmom- lol, I get that from Troy(my hubby) sometimes, I play the ‘fine I’ll remember this’ card. It always works!! Cause when he wants it, I have to be all for it. But when I want it its a challenge.

  • Courtneay- I get the eyerolls, they are soooo annoying! When ppl give me that look, I just tell them that I can’t stop until my baby is a year because I would have to fourmla feed her. The purpose of breast feeding is not to put your baby on formula(unless they need a supplement). My MIL wanted me to stop a long time ago too. I just ignored her…[Read more]

    Seansmom- I don’t know if it works I was just wondering of anyone has tried it. I was reading up on it and it says it’s a great way to tell if your ovulating, but not a great way to tell if your pregnant.

    Emma, it sounds like your doing a good job. The only thing that I would say that you did not mention but I’m sure your doing is washing your hands. Give your hubby a huge bottle of hand sanitizer. Your lucky your breast feeding, breast milk contains immunities that help protect your l/o from getting sick. It’s not 100% proof but when I got sick…[Read more]
