    I really hate to suggest this because I exclusively breastfeed my daughter as well, but have you thought about giving baby a bottle before bed with some rice cereal to fill up the belly so that maybe your LO will sleep better? My daughter is 5 months old and every night at dinner time I give her some baby food, usually a fruit and a…[Read more]

    Even a little breastmilk is better than none at all. Can I give you a suggestion?? I am exclusively nursing also and my lactation consultant suggested me to try taking Fenugreek. It has boosted my milk supply quite a bit. My lactation consultant said that some women respond better to a combination of blessed thistle and fenugreek…[Read more]

    You are so right!! Kids are sooo smart it is unreal! If mommy is away from them during the day, then they will make you spend time with them during the night, very true!

    I bought the Lansinoh double electric. I used it with my 2nd which is now 3 and I am using it for my 6 month old. I love it!! It is at walmart

    I need help from some breastfeeding mothers… I was wondering that if you pump milk does that mean that the next feeding you give your baby will be that much less? Example, you breastfeed your baby at noon, you pump 3 ounces at 130 and you breastfeed at 3…is that 3pm feeding going to be 3 ounces less since you pumped? I am not sure how it…[Read more]

    Trust me, the pain is only temporary. I have three kids and with all three I had such sore nipples for the first few weeks when my babies would start nursing that I would curl up my toes and hold my breath and fight back the tears. I totally understand on the painful feeling but you will notice that slowly the pain goes away and next…[Read more]

    I completely understand about the guilty feelings. There are times when I have to give my daughter some formula for something extra to satisfy her and it makes me feel so guilty, Also, I would love to stop nursing because it is very difficult to do unless you are blessed with boobies overflowing with milk but not many of us are. lol. I…[Read more]

    Hmmm, that sounds like a crumby situation. What exactly is the problem? Is it that you pump while your baby is hungry so you have to pump before he eats and then immediately feed it to him? I am not sure if I am understanding what is wrong, but if you are having a hard time pumping and then immediately feeding your baby maybe an idea…[Read more]

    Look into the Medela Supplemental nursing system. It is amazing!! You can still give your baby a supplement of some kind while at the same time your baby is still nursing from you. There is no worry about nipple confusion or refusing to nurse because the baby is not getting a bottle.Also, your nipples are getting the extra…[Read more]

    Shell:: did that happen at Walmart? I saw a pic of a lady in a motorized cart breastfeeding with her entire boobie hanging out..no discretion at all.

  • Krystaldawn replied to the topic in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 6 months ago

    Thanks ladies…that totally makes sense. So am i pumping the same amount of milk that my baby eats? I am pumping only a couple of ounces at a time, does that mean that is all that my baby is eating when she nurses? How much should I be able to get out?
