    Just wondering if anyone has found a birth control they love? Ive been doing research and it seems like all the bc safe for breastfeeding moms have horrible side effects. I know if I don’t get something I will be pg again, and we really cant have another. I can get bc free from my local health dept but my options are limited and the only things…[Read more]

    My son is now 14 weeks and I have always exclusively breastfed, for almost 2 months I only pumped and fed him expressed milk, well a few weeks ago I decided I would pump less and feed him on demand thinking it would increase my supply and I could store even more. But he wanted to stay attatched all the time and I couldn’t handle him being on me…[Read more]

    I have been pumping most of the time for at least a month now and I noticed that my right boob seems to make more milk than my left. Not a lot more, only half an ounce if Im not that full or a whole ounce if Im really full. My right boob is also slightly larger than my left, not because of milk its always been that way. But if I get really full…[Read more]

    Hi ladies, I just started drinking mother’s milk tea and taking fenugreek capsules. My supply is fine for what my son needs but I need to store some milk cause Im going back to work soon and I don’t get enough out to freeze and feed him. I was just wondering if any of you were using either of these or both and if they are working or not for any of you.

    I have a medela pump I got for free from the wic program at my local health department. It is a great pump, but not the most comfy breast shields, but I get a lot of milk with it, before I had a single evenflo comfort select and it sucked, plus it was loud as hell. I also have a medela harmony manual pump and I like it too.Before I got those I…[Read more]

    Most of the time I only get an ounce combined if I let my baby nurse before I pump. But I can get 5-8 ounces if I pump first so usually I keep the 5 ounces to feed him and freeze the 3 I have left.

    The weather is so crazy, I live in Alabama and its only been really cold for about a week and only a little chilly for about 2 weeks, I didn’t even wear a jacket yesterday. Sad thing is it hasn’t always been like this, it used to snow here once or twice a year around christmas/january, but its been almost 10 years with no snow and it hardly gets…[Read more]

    My baby has never had a bad reaction to any kind of food, that includes milk, nuts, and spicy foods like tacos and chili. But one time I had a large cup of coffee around lunch time, well it turned out it wasn’t decaf and I ended up being awake till 5 in the morning with a very bouncy baby. By the way I could not pump without this site! My breasts…[Read more]

    I have to say breastfeeding has been a hard road for me to walk. At 3 weeks we both had thrush, seemed like my nipples never totally stopped being sore from that, but we did finally get rid of it. Then I got a good pump but turns out my shields were too small. By the time I got the right size my nipples felt awful. He is 3 months now and I have…[Read more]

    I am 6 weeks postpartum and exclusively breastfeed but I have started bleeding after my baby began sleeping for stretches of 4 to 5 hours. But it is very light, it is not even red only light pink/brown and only barely heavy enough to wear a pantyliner. I stopped bleeding from the birth over 3 weeks ago, is it possible this is my first period? It…[Read more]

    My LO doesn’t go when he is sleeping. He started at about 4 months. For some reason he doesn’t go unless he is restless and spent a lot of time tossing and turning. When I get him up his diaper is always dry and after a few minutes of nursing he lets it all out. I wouldn’t worry just count the wet diapers in the day.
