    2ndtimemommy, if u look at special formulas, what is ‘special’ about them is that the cow/soy protein in them is already broken down. ive been to two pediatric GI’s that have told me that in the last two weeks of pregnancy all cow/soy proteins should have been cut out of my diet for my milk to be like the ‘special formula’. that means any and all…[Read more]

    laisla, that was me when my son was born. shes probably latching/relatching because of hte reflux not your supply. my son would do the same and that feeling just made me want to jump out of my skin. i dont have the ‘calming’ sensation most women have with latching so with each time he’d latch id feel these odd negative feelings. but once he got…[Read more]

    as for engorgement i had it really bad with both of mine. my boobs were rock hard and i could pump out 7-10 oz in about 5 minutes within a week of them being born because there was just too much. the pediatrician thought i was amazing lol even though i was just in ridiculous pain. whatever u do try ur best NOT to pump to relieve the pressure.…[Read more]

    momofcash, i hate conversations like that. i dont even entertain them half the time. in this day in age people should have enough intellect to realize the benefits of breastmilk. its such common sense to me that i get so annoyed when people dont understand. i especially hate it whenever anyone seems to be having trouble with breastmilk and people…[Read more]

    a bit of science behind soaking oats..which it turns out is different from fermented oats…….’All grains contain phytic acid (an organic acid in which phosphorous is bound) in the outer layer or bran. Untreated phytic acid can combine with calcium, magnesium, copper, iron especially zinc in the intestinal track and block their absorption. This…[Read more]

    ugh seriously? people can be so vicious. ive typed so much and erased it then typed again then erased it because im just appalled right now…. at the end of the day we are all HUMAN and with that virtue we all deserve RESPECT. the world is a cruel place, but this forum doesnt have to be.

    lawson, its always good to step back and look at the big pic. which is easier to digest, rice cereal or formula? i would think rice cereal is easier, theres no cows milk and bagillion other ingredients involved, and if the rice cereal upsets her tummy then u know its just the rice cereal, with formula there are so many ingredients involved that…[Read more]

    mybabysurprise…its ok, is this your first period? the supply will come back, in the mean time can u just increase his solids instead of giving him formula? try dry unsalted unroasted almonds also, they work so well with me and they’re convenient because u can just keep a bag with u wherever u are and just snack on em all day.

    seuban, i know EXACTLY how u feel. i was so worried about my first child and always felt like i was thinking ahead as to what ‘could’ happen and each scenario my mind would create would lead to death. if someone was carrying her i would picture her falling out of their arms and crashing on her head. if we were on the highway i would picture the…[Read more]

    Colorado, try a hospital grade pump. and in the mean time they have a little tube that u can tape right along ur boobs that ends at ur nipple. she gets the formula or breastmilk through the tube, but it keeps the association of boobs=food going until u get ur supply boosted.

    momofcash, we spend exactly 60-70 bucks per week on groceries. granted we dont have pets (except for two fish that dont really eat much). thats just on food it doesnt count the diapers because those come from costco. i only buy fruits, veggies, fresh meat, eggs, pasta, rice, and pasta sauce. the prepackaged stuff can hike prices up. eating out…[Read more]
