    anyone else experiencing hair loss? I’ve been EBF for 5 months now and just noticed last night while getting ready to go on a date with my husband that my hair is thinning around my ears . . . I was sooo worried! It looks like my head was shaven in a small spot.

    god, it is SUCH a relief to read your ladies comments about BF. Over in the 4 month page they sure are sensitive and really bite your head off for being a radical breastfeeder, such as myself! I was beginning to think there were no breastfeeders left! I have to say that out of the 9 friends of mine who had babies this year, I am the only one who…[Read more]

    I’m a very public breastfeeder because that is how I feed my child, that is how she gets her nutrients and I am proud of it. It’s so sad how society looks down upon it and makes mothers uncomfortable when that is what our bodies were made to do. Oh well, those people are closed minded and makes me want to breastfeed in public all the more! My…[Read more]

    if you can not wear a bra and use your own milk as a topical remedy, that works best.

    hollym- definitely think breastmilk will work. i’ve read that it even clears up pink eye! My daughter has slight cradles cap, it really isn’t bad, I’ve just let it do it’s thing and take it’s course. When I bath her I do use a terry washcloth and scrub gently. It’s getting better but I may try olive oil soon.

    KatieJones- my husband and I encapsulated my placenta and I just recently finished taking my pills (3xday) a few weeks ago, I am 5 months PP. I’m still having hair loss, although I have lots of hair so it’s not that big of a deal. Taking your placenta is also suppose to help stablize your hormones. There is all sorts of amazing benefits in doing…[Read more]

    May- There are NO disadvantages in breastfeeding. If you’re educated and prepared before you start, things should go smoothly.

    i got my period 3 months PP. My daughter Aurelia is 5 months and I’ve gotten my period 3 times. I am not yet on a regular cycle, and I don’t really feel when they are coming as I am still dealing with mood swings and hormonal imbalances.
