    Thanks! It was one beer and I feel tired lol. I think I’ll wait a couple hours. One drink always makes me tired. I should know better. Haha

    We hit our next goal. 6 mo. I’m so excited. So, she’s had 6oz of formula. I’m not worried. LOL. What I want to ask you ladies is this…. how long is it recommended we bf? I know till 1 year and thats my ultimate goal at this point. I couldn’t imagine making it past 3 weeks in the beginning and here we are at 6 months so I really feel anything…[Read more]

    lilliesmom-I went through the same thing!LOL! It’s pretty normal when bfing to be thirsty. Your body needs the extra fluids. I also craved milk. LOTS OF MILK. and water. It seems they quenched my thirst the best. I drank juice too. Just keep up the good work. :o)

    Finally, I’m actually getting some ounces when I pump!! YAY!! LOL! It only took a week…haha. Things are getting back to normal. I think I’ve determined that is was a growth spurt. I’m taking home 10oz today which is a far cry from 6. LOL. One stress down 3 million and one to go. :o)

    micky-you have to watch for pseudoepedrine and phenylephrine (sp?) These can cause your baby’s heartrate to go up. Anything that has a ‘drying’ agent such as Benadryl does will lower your supply. Most pharmacists are willing to help and tell you what is safe. I haven’t found much. Also, the pediatrician can tell you. They typically have a…[Read more]

    angie- I was the only one at my job with an infant. I also worked with mostly men. If I were alone I would just tell them I was shutting my door. Usually they would turn red and leave me be. If I had someone in my office I would tell them I had a private matter to attend to and ask them to wait in the sales room. As far as employees go, I would…[Read more]

    mylittleman- I’m using Medela nursing bras. I like them and the nursing pads do not show. My BBs are huge so anything that can hold me in and not make me look like I have bb’s on my belly button works for me! haha. Good luck. :O)

    lilliesmom- HAHA! I know what you mean. I hope you don’t have people laughing at you like I did. :o) I was ‘double fisted’ at home (one glass of water and one of something else) at all times and when we went out the servers started realizing that they couldn’t keep my glass full so the just bring me a pitcher of water. LOL! I’m still constantly…[Read more]

    Hi Ladies! Well, Gabriella is just over 10 months old and this week has sadly weaned herself. :o( Though I know it’s good for me to not have to struggle through that process I miss it. I still pump for her and she gets her milk in her cereal. She just doesn’t think it should come from a cup so I don’t force it. LOL. When I weaned night feeds…[Read more]

    I think my BB’s are in shock! LOL! My DD is loving her solids and has cut way back on nursing during the day. Today she went from 7:30a.m. until 3:00 without any milk. She was offered a bottle of breastmilk but she wouldn’t take it. We think partly the refusal came from her dad was giving her the bottle and the only person she has ever had one…[Read more]

    Jenn D- I think you need to avoid talking to her and explain that her negative thoughts on what ‘might’ happen aren’t helping you. The stress can add to your situation and you don’t need that. I would stand your ground about not having her in the room regardless of the type of delivery if thats what you want. I’ve had 3 and the first one I had…[Read more]

    samlib- Just wanted to add that the ingredients most pharmacists and ped’s will tell you not to take is anything with phenelephrine and pseudoephedrine. These are forms of ephedrine which can raise baby’s heartrate. Unfortunately I haven’t found a med that doesn’t have that in it. LOL. Luv was right about benadryl. I’m pretty sure it’s ok to take…[Read more]

    Hi Ladies, Just wanted to give an update. I tested on Sunday and bfn. I still don’t know what the spotting was or if I should test again. No real symptoms of pregnancy other than being tired so maybe it’s just hormones going nuts from coming off the Depo. We’ll see what happens next month. I can’t keep testing, I’m starting to feel crazy. LOL!…[Read more]

    I’m starting to become really discouraged. I know it’s not good because it doesn’t help the situation but I can’t help it. For days now I’ve been trying to up my supply and nothing. What used to take me 2 pumpings I know have to get in 5…if I’m lucky. My daughter is in a growth spurt and I can’t keep up. I don’t know what to do. I went to get…[Read more]

  • MommyXs3 replied to the topic in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 6 months ago

    Over-the-moon- try actually bfing. It’s much more effective for emptying your bb’s and for production. Also, I used to soak oatmeal (not instant) in water over night and heat and eat the next day. That helped me. Drink as much water as you can of course and try to relax. Goodluck!

    Supermom- I’ve thought about that but don’t really know anyone in need of childcare. My income is half of what it was because I only came back part time. We have a vehicle that we will have paid off in 10 months. That alone will save a huge chunk. I would only need 100-150 a week but it seems there’s nothing legit. I just don’t know how some…[Read more]

    Well ladies, my LO had 6oz of formula yesterday.I wasn’t able to keep up with her needs pumping and I simply ran out of milk. I felt quite defeated at first but now I’m glad she got what she needed. She is doing fantastic with solids and I’m caught back up so it’s all good. This forum has been an amazing encouragement to me and – want to thank all…[Read more]
