• ok, i have a question. i b/f my baby every 2 to 3 hours, sometimes its a little longer if he is sleeping good. when my milk first came in my boobs were hard as rocks but now they are squishy all the time. is that normal or is my supply running out? he seems satisfied when he eats tho.. and the pads in my bras are always soaked. my boobs just look…[Read more]

  • jennys- thanks for that info. i would have never known pumping could cause a let down. i just want to be able to pump extra milk for when i go back to work in 2 weeks.

  • luvbeingamom- thanks 🙂 the only reason i really want to pump is so my bf can help me at night when baby is fussy and also because during the day when my baby is sleeping more, my boobs start to get super full and they itch BAD! but other than that, i will breastfeed as much as possible. plus i want to be able to leave the baby at the grandparents…[Read more]

  • i will be pumping when i take my baby to daycare/babysitter so will i just pump into separate bottles. how many should i fill? i still have 4 weeks before i go back to work but it would be nice to know 🙂

  • what does it mean to ‘let down’ ? i dont ever feel anything different when i breastfeed… 🙁

  • ook so this is really wierd. i fed my baby from both sides and then went to pump the rest for extra bottles. nothing was coming out!! does that mean he completely drank all of it?? lol….what a pig. i dont think im runnin low on milk or anything because as he was eating his mouth was full of milk. i guess i just didnt think he was drinking ALL of it.

    momof2- im afraid of pumping and then the baby being hungry when i am out of milk too. so when i pump i just do one boob at a time lol. that way he will have at least one 🙂

  • i just talked to my bf about the pumping situation @ work and we decided that if it causes too much conflict i will find another job. draven comes first always!

  • thats reassuring..i would be so depressed if i couldnt b/f anymore..my baby loves it and i know he would hate being put on a bottle right now.

  • what are your ladies opinions on using formula at night for a fuller tummy? im just curious…havent decided if im going to try it or not because i really dont want him having anything but my milk.

    so does breastfeeding really make your period not come for a while? that would be lovely lol…i would just worry if i was preggo or not.

  • oh and my boobs dont leak milk anymore either 🙁 i feed him all the time…i dont wanna run out!!! and i dont have a pump…

    he hates bottles and still turns his head to my chest when i hold him…so he must like to b/f.. i just dont understand why he gets so mad

  • erikas- i figured out its not my small supply that is upsetting him…my milk hurts his tummy. every time he eats he screams because immediately he starts farting and pooping. i gave him formula last night and today…nothing. he is fast asleep and has been so happy all day. unfortunately im just going to have to quit breastfeeding but im ok with…[Read more]

  • my baby is 5 weeks old and i am only producing 2 oz of milk in each boob. he eats 6, i have to supplement with formula for the other 2 oz. will my milk supply increase on its own or not? i cant really spend all day pumping 🙁 i thought your supply grew with the baby….its really depressing…i hate using bottles!!!
