    kerrienb – be careful of what you say, your LO may never want to stop BFing haha! But seriously, I think that is wonderful and power to you for getting thru it and encouraging others. I had a really difficult time too in the beginning. It never stop hurting for me though (even after 4.5 months) so I started to exclusively pump. Happy BFing to all…[Read more]

    My period return when my son was 2 months old. Even though I was exclusively breastfeeding. It’s just different for every woman. Jen WVU, your period may or may not return. It’s just too hard to say. But you should be prepared anyway, just in case.

    crystal10102007 – My sister-in-law had milk up to a year after she stopped breastfeeding. I guess it just depends on your body. Sage and parsley will dry up your milk. You can probably get them in capsule form from a health food store.

    m.m.masi – Good job! It must be hard to be away from them let alone breastfeeding twins! At least they’re getting your milk! Keep up the good work! πŸ™‚ Yay for you!!

    Sticky rice works the best for me. I can get an extra 2 oz when I pump after I’ve eaten sticky rice. I was really surprised because I’ve taken fenugreek, brewers yeast, marshmallow, alfalfa and fermented oatmeal to increase my supply. It’s just called Sticky Rice on the package and you should be able to find it in a local Asian store. I haven’t…[Read more]

    Any of you ladies testing this week? I will be testing on Wednesday. I’m so anxious I want to test now! But I’m going to wait until Wednesday (when AF is due)

    Well, I’ve officially stopped e-pumping my milk for my son πŸ™ I did it because I’m pregnant again πŸ™‚ So I’m happy and sad. My goal was to make it to 6 months and we passed that so I’m pleased with that. I would have continued but I read that breastfeeding while pregnant can lead to miscarriages due to low progesterone (I believe.) They also said…[Read more]

    kathy=^.^= – My husband is out of town every other week, so like you, it may be hard to conceive because he will be gone when I’m most fertile. I have some mixed feelings about being pregnant again too. I know I want another child, and I want them to be close in age, but I really don’t want to be preggo again. I’m just getting my body back. Oh…[Read more]

    ToveAndBrody – my milk is the same. I was just telling my husband that I think I only make skim milk – LOL. My little guy is a little on the chubby side so I know he’s getting what he needs. I wouldn’t worry about it unless your baby isn’t thriving. Cheers πŸ™‚
