    I didn’t mean to imply that it hurt only if you had an incorrect latch, just that it is the main culprit. I never had pain or sensitive nips so I guess that I never thought that anyone else did, sorry. But I did have a lot of frustration in the beginning because I could not find a comfortable position to feed in and at the time I did not have a…[Read more]

    Breastfeeding if done right (baby latching correctly) is not painful at all, you can’t even feel anything really. You might have some pain when you become engorged in the morning but that goes away after baby eats and even engorgement subsides over time. Milk ducts on the arms?!?! lol. If you are a large chested woman chances are that you are…[Read more]

    does the mother’s milk tea work by itself or do you have to take other stuff with it?

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

    angie.. I just saw an add on Craigslist that a person was in need of breastmilk for a premie. You might be able to get people who want it locally if you post an add on craigslist saying that you want to donate it. I went to the Milkshare website and it costs a one time fee of $15 to join but apparently there are a lot of people on that website…[Read more]

    I really want to get back on the Atkins diet because it is the only thing that ever worked for me to lose weight but I don’t know if a high protein low carb diet is safe while breastfeeding??? Does anyone know?? thanks

    my daughter just turned 1 and I still take my prenatal vitamins. I guess it is more out of habit but they are supposed to be taken while nursing too. My little girl is a year old now and I would like to wean her to cows milk because I need to go on a diet and lose some weight but I cant do that while I am nursing her. I have EBF this whole time…[Read more]

    I forgot who I was talking to a while ago, but we were talking about the mothers milk tea and the taste. I was taking the Traditional Medicinal brand Mother’s milk tea and when I went to wal-mart to get more they were out. So I bought the Yogi brand nursing mom’s tea and it tastes much better than the other one. Just thought I would pass that along 🙂

    My girl is 8 months and I don’ think I had a period. A week ago is had some color on the paper but not any real bleeding. It may have been a really really light period but I am not sure. Either way it went away thank God 🙂

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

    ohhhhh, i didn’t know that. I didn’t join, I just visited the website. I did pass the info on to the mother who needed the milk so hopefully she will sign up.

    Oh my!! all this talk of blocked ducts and mastitis sounds terribly painful. Sorry to hear about all that. I am not sure if I had a blocked duct or not but the other day I was really sore like bruised on the inside of one breast. Nursing was uncomfortable and afterwards I still felt full and bruised. I read about what was going on in here and so I…[Read more]

    About the weight gain thing, I give Olivia vitamin drops in her cereal to help her absorb the nutrients better. I was told that if a baby is low on vitamin D and Iron then they have a tough time gaining weight so they give them vitamins. Olivia has no problem. At her 6 month checkup in January she was in the 75% for weight and off the chart for…[Read more]

    I used the tip to put coffee creamer in the mother’s milk tea and it tastes pretty good, like watered down coffee lol. My tea doesn’t taste like licorice, it tastes like mint tea. Maybe there are other flavors. I also make a large amount to put in the fridge and drink it cold. hope it tastes good 🙂

    it is the traditional medicinals original formula organic mother’s milk tea. I just poured a cup of tea that I had in the fridge and it seems to be more tolerable.

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

    And, the person receiving the milk pays for the shipping and stuff like that so there isn’t any cost to you but your time for pumping. One person said that they got like 6 inquiries in the first day after the person posted to donate, so there is definately a need.
