    mere-and-girl-my baby sometimes does the arching of the back and frantic thing too….sometimes i think she is fighting sleep when she does it and others if she grunts and kinda crys a little i think her tummy hurts. those are just guesses on my end though.

    is anyone here using mirena as birth control? if so, is it working well? i’m figuring that is what my doctor will suggest as birth control since i am breastfeeding. i used to take ortho tri cyclen lo and it always worked really well. one time i took seasonal and it made me have migraines and throw up so i had to quit taking it. i have one…[Read more]

    ella-my baby did that about a month ago. everytime we fed her she threw up the entire amount she had just eaten. she didn’t have any diarrhea but she did have a low grade fever the night before she started throwing up. she threw up every single bottle/boob feeding for about 12 hours…..we tried to wait at least three hours between feeds,…[Read more]

    i’m going to try the fermented oats tomorrow morning….by the looks of them i probably am going to have to choke them down. seems the last few days my supply is a little lower than normal when i pump at work….not really sure why because caroline seems to be nursing more frequently so i figured i would be making more not less. oh well….i…[Read more]

    oh and according to her pediatrician she has reflux……….so we are on prevacid now and she has been on it for 4 days. i have heard it can take up to two weeks for results so i am patiently awaiting for it to work. if it does work….this could be what the problem was the entire time! i know when i was breastfeeding her…she would eat like…[Read more]

    also i now have probably between 400-500 ounces of frozen breastmilk so that will be good to have for nights out and stuff!

    well…….i didn’t even do perineum stretching whatsoever and i didn’t tear my perineum, thank God…but i did tear internally because little missy decided to come out with her arms crossed tight in front of her. my doctor told me it heals faster and easier than perineum tearing…yeah right apparently….i thought all was good until she stuck…[Read more]

    omg, , my baby is doing the exact same thing guys!!! she will come off and will pretty much just play with my nipple…..she will be doing just fine but then will pop off and smack her lips with my nipple in her mouth a few times….just like you jessica i have to pretty much push her head into my boob and she will latch sometimes and others i…[Read more]

    when i was pregnant and having constipation issues. my doctor told me to get senakot. it worked really good. i’m still taking it now every day. i hate taking something like that everyday for fear of it making my body dependent on it but if i don’t take something at least every other day i regret it on about the 3rd day. i really need to call…[Read more]

    dollybird-the first two weeks or so were exactly like that with my baby. she is going a little longer in between feedings now and if i’m lucky sometimes 2 hours in between 🙂

    i have been taking the expecta lipil dha supplement by enfamil since i was in my third trimester plus my prenatal vitamin. is it a waste of money or is it good to be taking? my poor baby has another cold…..she just got over her runny nose from the last cold just two weeks ago…she had that cold for over a month. now here we are on cold…[Read more]

    yeah she definitely has gas as well. i know her screaming fits have to do with her belly issues. i couldn’t wait and i thought what is one more week? i started bf her tonight when i got home from work and that is all we have done tonight. she has been a good girl tonight so i think we are good to go. i know we are probably not out of the…[Read more]

    i know…..i for sure will wean off the formula no matter what! i plan on ebf…..i just remember at first i hated bf and i just thought formula feeding would be so much easier. i was so wrong…..dealing with bottles takes up like an hour or more out of every single day. and it takes just as long for her to drink a bottle as it does to bf her.…[Read more]

    i agree lawsons mom-i just actually started working this past tuesday and miss my baby so much. i LOVE getting home and nursing my baby!!! and when she isn’t super fussy at night i also find it VERY relaxing when breastfeeding in her dark quiet room in the middle of the night. i just love the excitement in her face when after she has had…[Read more]

    expecting-2b-patient—hurt like a bitch….i like how you put that, haha…thanks for being honest…i figured it would still hurt like a bitch in a couple of weeks and now i kinda know what to expect 🙂 oh well…..a little pain now will prevent me having another baby too soon which i don’t want just yet so i guess it will be worth it 🙂

    so i never knew what a letdown felt like. i have noticed though that a little while after i pump at work i feel like a bruised feeling in my boobs. could that be the letdown that i am feeling? also a letdown…………..when you feel it….is it your breasts filling up with the milk or it just signals you to know that you have milk in your…[Read more]

    does anyone know if it is possible for mastitis to go away without having to take antibiotics? i had flu like symptoms yesterday…..fever, chills, aches….nothing else….i’m better from all that but today when i went to pump i noticed a big red splotch on my right breast so i’m pretty sure just from the research i have done online that it is…[Read more]
