    Good morning. Could any of you share some tips for positioning baby while nursing out in public? When I’m home I use a boppy pillow to raise me son up to my breast. I don’t take it out wherever I go and really struggle to fine a good way to nurse him without it. He is two months old so I need him elevated enough to reach my breast bu its hard…[Read more]

  • Good morning lovely ladies. So, I believe (according to temping and opk’s) that I ovulated yesterday…we have been doing lots of bding and now today I am having horrible lower cramps. Any thoughts on what this means?

  • I have found that the mind can be a powerful tool in making yourself feel pregnant. I have had a 26 day cycle since giving birth to my daughter 16 months ago. Hubby and I started ttc last month and I began analyzing and obsessing over every little ache or pain that just might be a symptom….my period was 4 days late that month making it a 30…[Read more]

  • Good morning ladies…anybody else ever feel like they have the blues? I just feel so down this week. No energy, foggy brain and just no motivation. I’m not sure if its ttc related or something else …sigh.

  • tiffyy-To figure out your exact due date you count ahead nine months plus seven days from the first date of your last menstrual period. So for example if your last period was June 1st, you would be due March 8th. Does that make sense?

    Hi ladies. I apologize if this is TMI in any way but it is genuinely something I’m courious about and I wanted your thoughts. I will soon be able to resume sexual activities with hubby since it has almost been 6 weeks since my son was born. I am scared because my breasts are super sensitive and even air hitting them sometimes causes a letdown.…[Read more]

    I am reading the back of the fenugreek bottle…they are safe for nursing moms right? It says to consult your physician before taking if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. H also, how many and how often do I take them? Thry are 610mg pills and the bottle says one or two a day but I thought I was supposed to take more than that.

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

    Also, does fenugreek actually work? Where can I find that and how much do you take?

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

    For those of you who also put pumped milk into bottles, which bottle do you prefer? I return to work in about a month and Derek will need a few bottles at daycare. I still plan on breasfeeding a few feeds a day so I’m looking for a bottle that will be close to breast. Any opinions?

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

    Hello everyone! I could really use some advice here so please weigh in if you have a minute 🙂 Does anyone know if there is a maximum amount of milk one breast can hold at a time? I have been feeding Derek off one breast since he was born, he is a few days short of 3 months now and this week he seems miserable and dissatisfied at the breast.…[Read more]

    Another question…the playtex bottles I’m trying out have the slow flow nipples on them…and thaye are very slow in my opinion. Derek takes a very long time to drink milk in them and I think my milk actually comes out faster when I breastfeed him. Do I move him to med flow since he will be three months when I start working which is probably…[Read more]

  • I have had a positive OPK for three days straight despite a second big dip in my bbt chart….is this normal?

  • 3 DPO here…I think at least.

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

    I do have a moby wrap maybe I should try that. Its just so hard because he pops off and on so much so I have to keep putting him on with one hand and hold him with the other. Do any of your little ones do that?

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

    lauraoct-sorry to hear Ollie wasn’t feeling well and I can sympathize. Derek got his shots this week too and was very uncomfortable for two days. His leg swelled and was very red and sore. He cried a lot and did run a fever. Its so hard seeing them in pain. Glad to hear Ollie is feeling better.

    Bri-what does the MMT taste like? How do you personally prepare it? Can you use that fenugreek caplets or is that too much?

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

    Good morning ladies. Thanks for the explanations how much to put in Dereks bottles when he starts daycare. I guess I will just have to watch for cues that he wants more in his bottles to know when to start increasing the amounts. I have found he likes the playtex bottles more than the breastflow which was slightly disappointing but I’m just…[Read more]

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

    I am really struggling to get Derek to take a bottle. I go back to work in less than a month so I’ve been experimenting. He didn’t like the playtex dropins so I ordered the breastflow bottles but I must be a moron because I’m really struggling to get them to work. They keep leaking on me and I have a horrible time trying to release the extra…[Read more]

    Hello, I’m from week 35 but am popping in with a breastfeeding question if that’s okay. Just curious if anyone has some insight. When I had my daughter I had a ton of milk on my right side but hardly anything on the other side. Because of this my daughter never really wanted to nurse from that side and would get very frustrated. Even when I…[Read more]

    Okay, thanks. I have been using one the past few mornings with first morning urine. I have a bunch left over from this month so I thought I would give it a shot. There has been a line every morning but so far not one that is darker than the control line. I do think it may be getting slightly darker but not positive as of yet.
