    I have a ridiculous amount of milk. I can pump 5oz in about 5 minutes with a manual pump on one breast. My breast pads are constantly soaked as well as my clothes & my LO. He practically drowns in milk. Once he sucks a few times & the milk let’s down it squirts (and I mean SQUIRTS!!) for like a minute straight. I have to let a blanket soak it up…[Read more]

    Question! Do any of you moms give your breastfed LO’s vitamins? My LO is 6 weeks old & is EBF. Should he also receive a daily vitamin?

    I have a question but I’m not sure how crazy I might sound (feel free to tell me if I have completely ‘lost it’ lol) I was wondering what you ladies thought about making a breast-milk-shake for the LO. For example mixing like 3 ounces of BM with a few spoonfuls of…lets say…pear baby food to make it like a milkshake treat?? I thought of this…[Read more]

    I haven’t gotten my AF thank goodness! My LO is 11 weeks!

    I feel like I should reiterate that he gets PISSED OFF. Its not that he simply refuses the bottle, he sees the bottle & throws a major fit. Blue in the face, flailing & actually screaming.

    emily – my supply is really low at night too! My boobs feel flat & empty!! My LO is 3 months & is EBF and in the mornings I have so much milk he only drinks from one boob at a time. So what I did was pump about 4 oz from the other boob & try to give it to him by bottle before bedtime. Well it was a great idea in theory but my LO was tired & cranky…[Read more]

    jacquecmsu & yukstar – I am going to be one of those annoying moms who is about to brag that her son sleeps 10 hours straight through the night EVERY night no matter what. He is EBF, not even fed expressed milk – just a great lil nurser & sleeper. He is 5 months old & started sleeping 7 hours straight at 1 month. Sooo my point of telling you this…[Read more]

    Jessica Austen – I did not see one person BF in Disney World – actually can you believe this MY LO IS 11 WEEKS AND I STILL HAVEN’T SEEN ANYONE BF IN PUBLIC BESIDES MYSELF ;( I live in Miami and everyone here is all about their image and they do not sacrifice much. Most have nannies that wake up with the baby at night even. I also consider myself a…[Read more]

    mybabysurprise – my LO did the EXACT SAME THING when he was about that age. It hurt so much & was quite annoying BUT eventually they stop. When my LO clamps down on my nipple now I say NO or STOP very firmly. Believe me they are smart. They understand.

  • MiamiMom2b replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 7 months ago

    Remember every womans breasts & baby are unique & different. It totally worked for me to start pumping right away. My baby also took a bottle & a pacifier starting at 2 days old. We have never experienced any ‘nipple confusion’ whatsoever. So remember to go with your gut instinct & do what feels right for your unique baby & body! And it does hurt…[Read more]

    nikkiandfred – I’ve done a ton of research on this. Its extremely controversial & heavily debated. I started giving my LO single grain rice cereal 3 days ago (he is 3months & 2 weeks). I feed it to him by spoon & mix it with breastmilk. I make it very thin. It is adorable to watch him eat! He opens his mouth when he sees the spoon coming! He…[Read more]

    Lilli/Ladies – right now my LO is 6 weeks & EBF. Should i be giving him vitamin D? We go on walks everyday so he gets a little sun everyday.

  • MiamiMom2b replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 7 months ago

    Happy New Year ladies! My LO is 5 months old & is EBF. I have given him a few tastes of rice cereal & some pear babyfood but I can tell he is just not ready for solids. He makes terrible faces & spits it all out & even starts to cry! Haha so I will try again in several weeks. I am in no rush. Anyways, I must agree with many moms here, our ped is…[Read more]

    My LO is EBF and I have a great supply – almost too much milk actually. I block feed to try to give him as much hind milk as possible but everyday he has at least 2 green poops! He is healthy happy sleeps through the night & is gaining weight like a champ. He poops veryy often. Some yellow, bright yellow, light yellow and some green. Should I be…[Read more]

    babyinjuly – I also started my LO on solids a week before he turned 4 months. I give him rice ceral mixed with breast milk by spoon at night. He LOVES it. I also gave him a bit of plain mashed sweet potato on thanksgiving while I was cooking & he hated it & gagged. He did the same with a tiny piece of banana so I haven’t started routinely giving…[Read more]

    rose1003 – From what I have heard & researched – as babies get older (especially EBF babies) their tummys learn to digest the milk better & that results in less frequent bowel movements. Also, I have heard that stool should never be thicker than peanut butter. Hope this helps 🙂

  • MiamiMom2b replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 7 months ago

    I have a question! When did you ladies introduce your EBF LO’s to solids? What kind of solids did you try giving them and how? Also, do they drink less milk when you give them solids?

  • MiamiMom2b replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 7 months ago

    My LO is 3months & 1 week and is EBF. I am so anxious to offer him something besides breastmilk. I can’t wait to see him eating & enjoying food! (i guess cuz I am a foodie & loveee food lol) Anyways, I know the food obviously must wait but when do you ladies think it would be okay for him to taste a little sip of juice (or water?) I am not talking…[Read more]

    Megang22- my breasts also get really hard in between feedings & once he BF they go back to being soft, I think they get hard because they are simply full of milk. I think a clogged duct would cause a lot of pain and other issues so I don’t think its that. Also, I don’t know if birthcontrol lowers your supply, I really hope it doesn’t because I…[Read more]

    jacque – yes ALL the pain will eventually go away. It takes awhile. It took me at least a month & now my little one is 4 months & BFing is easy, convienient & completely comfortable! Keep up the good work & it gets much eaisier!
