    Hi ladies…Some questions/problems. I was doing really well with BF and pumping until a couple of weeks ago. I’m still doing well with BF – but I used to be able to pump 6 ounces at every pumping and now I only get 3. The only thing that has changed is that I’m on birth control. Could that be what affected my supply?
    If Bryce goes 4-5 hours…[Read more]

    babydoll – keep feeding and pumping afterwards. Also, in the beginning I thought I was eating enough but I was not. Remember that BF burns an extra 500 calories a day. Once I started eating more, I started producing more milk.

    On the topic of being gassy -the only things that affect me (which then affects baby) are tomatoes and onions. Try cutting things out of your diet one at a time for about a week to find out what the culprit is.

    During the day he eats every 2 hours. At night I have to wake him up to feed and I wake him up every 3-4 hours. I believe I am eating enough – I eat breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks throughout the day. I drink a ton of water. I am producing 2 ounces per breast. He has at least 4 poopy diapers a day (yellow/seedy) and at least 8-10 wet diapers…[Read more]

    Hi Ladies! Hope everyone is doing well! I feel like I ask a million questions lately…. Bryce went last week to get circumsized and they said he is not gaining enough weight. The doctor told me to make sure he is feeding 20 minutes off of each breast at every feeding so we have been doing that. Yesterday was his re-check (with a diff. doctor in…[Read more]

    Hi ladies – I have EvenFlo pumps and up until recently they’ve been great. I never had to use the highest settings and was still able to pump a good amount of milk. Now, unless I use the highest setting I only pump about 1 oz. I wouldn’t mind using the high settings except that it’s killing my nipples. It looks like I have a hickey on each of my…[Read more]

    Another question for you wonderful ladies.. The other day I pumped the most I ever have at one sitting (3 oz. from one side, 2 oz. from the other). I usually get 2 from each side. However, I haven’t been able to pump that much at one sitting since! My LO is only 4 weeks old, so he’s still good with 4 oz per feeding. Is it normal to produce extra…[Read more]

    Quick question ladies – my son is 2 weeks and 4 days old and we are only breastfeeding. It seems like I have 2 ounces in each breast when they are full. Does this seem about right? This morning he only ate off of one side so I pumped the other and got 2 ounces. That is the most I’ve ever gotten off of one breast but I usually just pump after he’s…[Read more]

    Thanks ladies – I used to always pump at least 6 ounces and now I can get anywhere from 2-4 ounces. Just wanted to make sure it was normal! =)

    Hi ladies – I need some help!! I’m new to this breastfeeding thing – my baby was born last Friday so he is almost a week old. We are getting the hang of things, but he definetly has a ‘favorite’ breast, which is now really sore and starting to crack. Any advice on how to heal a cracked nipple would be greatly appreciated!!

    Hi ladies – I have a pretty specific question.. Anyone who’s LO is 4 months old – how much are you able to pump at a time? I used to have overproduction issues and now I’m feeling like I’m not producing enough and just want to make sure. Thanks!
