    ADLDE- I know what you mean. My hubby is currently trying to get his daugther back from his mother. (not his ex wife, but yes his mother.) Long story short, hubby and ex seperated and ex had his daughter, she was taken and placed with his mother until one of the two of them could get their act together. (this was in 05) Now fast forward to today,…[Read more]

    I didn’t allow MIL to the hospital till the next day. I had my section scheduled for 4:30 but it happened a little later than that so by the time he was born and I was really wanting to see anyone other than my family it was past visiting hours. For me is sucked because I wanted my father to be in the room for the birth as he has not gotten to…[Read more]

    Ok ladies… Silly me forgot my pump parts at home again! Man I need to put my extra set here at work for these days… But anyway I had to hand express again.. Last time I did it I only got 5 oz in 3 times. I actually got 6 oz for all 3 today. YEAH. (I usually get 7 – 7.5) I am a little shy but will pump at 10pm as RJ goes to bed at 8 sharp. (He…[Read more]

    Ok, so I am a ding-dong today. I have to come to work early and was trying to get everything together. Turned around to get my pump parts to put in my pump bag, grabbed the lids to the bottles and that is it. Got to work and freaking realized I am going to have to hand pump all day now….. I usually have been getting 2-2 1/2 ounces out of this…[Read more]

    Kym- I put RJ to both breast each nursing. (If I don’t he gets mad!) If I can make myself I try to pump after he nurses, but I don’t even get a 1/2 combined from that. The IF he is asleep by 8 – 8:30 I try to pump about 10 – 10:30. If I do that then I can get the extra 2 – 2.5 oz for the next day. Lately the little man has been testing the limits…[Read more]

    I swear ladies if it wasn’t for the negative HPT I got this morning I would honestly think that I am pregnant. I have not cried like this since I was pregnant. Again today at work I got told to do something different than what I am used to and I cried. Right there in front of the plant manager. Now I am crying harder because I am afraid of losing…[Read more]

    OK, so RJ has started to do something silly while nursing. He has decided to start rolling from his back to his belly, while all along my nipple is still in his mouth. He still nurses but when he is done he pulls off and get milk all over his face. He just laughs and smiles like it is the funniest thing in the world. Has anyone else ever…[Read more]

    jlevine- My little guy is 12 days away from 10 months and this past friday was his frist overnight with my dad (well with anyone). It was hard on me. I kept listening for him to cry, woke up a couple times in the middle of the night thinking I could hear him in his crib, and just plain missed him. I had to pump several times (and I hate pumping, I…[Read more]

    YEAH!!!! I know it isn’t much but I got 8 oz today. (that is total combined from all 3 of my pumps.) That is only half an oz more than usual but hey I gotta start somewhere right?? I am so excited it has been months since I have gotten that much. That makes RJ getting 2 4oz bottles on Monday!!!! YIPPE!!!

  • KEBLER98 replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 7 months ago

    Maybe the reason I have issues with production is my breast never got any bigger. I was a D cup before pregnancy, through pregnancy, and after delivery. I mean 7-7.5 oz is 2 bottles for him, but only getting 1-2 oz a session is depressing. But hey that is 2 less bottle of formula he has to have. The closer I get to a year the less I want to give…[Read more]

    elliel- I was having trouble breast feeding at home because while in daycare my son was being given little nipple, so I found some bottles by The First Years, they are called breast flow. They have a nipple inside a bigger nipple to more simulate a mothers letdown, flow, and nipple. Since he started using those at daycare we have had less issue…[Read more]

    suzm- Girl do I ever hear you. I was the same way. I had to give my son 1 – 2 bottles of formula every day because I only pumped enough for 1 bottle when at work. When I was home with him there were NO issues. He nursed on demand and was happy after each session. I can tell you I had many a day where giving up seemed like the ONLY option. I tried…[Read more]

    With my c-section I was taken straight to my room and I even got to hold RJ from the operating room to my room. Which was like 5 doors down. I would have went off had they taken him and not let me see him for that long. I would maybe look into another hospital if I were you. There was even a nurse by my side for the first 1 or so to make sure I…[Read more]

    I used to wake him or pump at about 1am but lately he is up till 10-11. (He used to be down at 8 sharp) Now I just nurse right before bed and we wake up at 4:40 am for work so I am already a walking zombie so I gave up the 1 am to save me a wreck or mistake at work. I am glad like I said earlier that there are other mothers who give around the…[Read more]

    I see all the jaundice comments on here. When RJ was born in August of 08 (YEAH almost 13 months of nursing under our belt) we never had to do the light, but our nurse told us nurse often and put in near a window so he could get the sunlight. That worked great for us. I hope everyone’s babies are doing great. I love this forum and the wonderful…[Read more]

    bri- good luck. Baby dust to you. I don’t know if I will ever get baby fever again. My hubby has 2 kids from a previous marriage and we are trying to get custody of his daughter from his mother. (Long story that I have posted about in the mil section a couple of times if you want to look) So this makes his 3rd and it gets kinda hairy everyother…[Read more]

    erickaash- I know what you mean about being really close to your MIL and then BAM! Everything goes sour. Before my hubby and I started dating his mother and I actually used to be the best of friends. We used to do a lot together and she knew more about my life than my own mother. She knew that my ex boyfriend was a drug addict and how badly he…[Read more]

    Kym- I think that is an awesome amount. I am away from my little one for 12 hours and I am only able to give my aunt enough for 2 bottle. Sometimes both are 4 oz other times it is one 4 oz bottle and one 3.5 oz bottle. (Last week I was doing good getting 8-9 oz for a day and this week I am back to the 7.5 oz for a day. RJ does get solids. I was…[Read more]

    annie- I mean 6 oz total all day. I wish it was 6 oz each time I pumped. I could barely stand to pump this morning as hand expression still leaves me a little tender (I am still learning how to do it just right) My first pumping I only got 1.5 oz combined. I think I am the opposite of other ladies as I get more milk later in the day than in the…[Read more]

    Ok ladies…
    I am a little concerened…. My hubby and I have chosen condoms as birth control as I have always had a supply issue and we didn’t want to risk my supply. My little guy will be 8 months on the 15. I have had a normal cycle since 8 weeks post pardum. 2 weeks ago I had my normal cycle… A week ago I had horrible pains on my right side…[Read more]
