    Does anyone have any good tips on how to burp the baby without waking him up? He always nurses himself to sleep just fine, but then I go to burp him and he wakes up and screams and cries for another hour before falling back to sleep. I’m at my wits end with this, and just dont want to burp him anymore! Please if anyone has some good advice for…[Read more]

    krpzz- I had the exact same thing happen to me with the last minute emergency c-section. I was givin a fingerfeeder that i would fill with breastmilk and place the tubing down inside the nipple shield and then put it over the nipple. We did this for about 3 weeks after I got out of the hospital. I then took away the finger feeder and he just…[Read more]

    While I’m out or at work Travis gets expressed bm our of a breastflow bottle. He loves them and he has never had any nipple confusion. He wont eat from any other bottles.

    She changes to formula bc for her its easier… or so she says. Seriously how hard is it tho thaw out a bag of bm??? My husband can do it so im sure she can! Its just pure laziness. She gets the formula b/c my sil has a baby that is 2 months older than mine and he is formula fed. She has even resorted to lying to me about it after I have left…[Read more]

    I have the same problem with one giving a lot more milk than the other. I dont really pump very often but when I do my left breast always gives me at least 2 to 2.5 oz where my left only about half an oz. It really stinks, I’m due to go back to work thursday and I have no supply saved up for him, when I do pump I have to give it to him as he…[Read more]

    My husband is such a momma’s boy that he would never say anything to her. I’m still waiting for him to grow up and think for himself!! I doubt that would ever happen tho. My mil did take me out shopping yesterday and got Travis quite a bit of summer clothes, which was very nice. I’m still wondering what her alterier motive was! haha.. so…[Read more]

    Just need to brag… We finally made an entire feeding without using the nipple shield!! He is just over 3 weeks. I’m sure I will still need to use it occasionally, but I’m so happy that we are making progress!

    I am using the MiPump by the First Years. I love it and it works wonderful. Its the pump that came with The First Years Breastflow bottles. Those are a lifesaver as well. My baby wont use any other bottle and I wont let him use any other bottle. These ones dont leak. The pump was only like $80 too so it was very affordable. I love it!!!

    I need help… My son is 11 weeks old and is breastfed. His poo’s were always very loose and seedy just like it should be. However for the past 2 weeks he has only gone maybe once a week and it is so thick that it seems like he has a hard time getting it out. Why did it change consistancy like that or is it normal as he grows and eats more?

    Momofcash- don’t give up on trying without the nipple shield! It took my son and I over a month before he would latch on without it. I have flat nipples. Now that he is 6 months he can find them in the dark I swear! lol Give it time and he will get it! My son sleeps every night in his crib and he sleeps the best in there in his own room. Nap…[Read more]

    Faith: under the babies section there is a month to month. You then just click on how old your baby is and join in on the convo! There are still a lot of us from the pregnancy side over there too. I’m a month behind you!

    haha I love this page! My mil is such a snob! She is always trying to take my son everywhere with her to show him off and I cant stand it. I think she drives terrible so if I find out she has to go somewhere while she is supposed to watch him, I find someone else! haha, i’m so not playing her game! She is good to him, but she acts like its her…[Read more]
