    xXxEXPLOxXx – maybe your milk is regulating. If baby is getting 6+ dirty diapers a day and gaining baby is getting enough milk ๐Ÿ™‚

    mommynwifey5 – sex gets better with time. At first I would have to keep my nursing top on because I would leak all over the place, now that my milk is regulated I don’t have a problem. Hubby can play with them all he wants, but he stays away from my nipples and areolas lol.

    hchina – better yet READ a book to ur LO when nursing ๐Ÿ™‚ My LO loves it

    katjak – have you tried aiming the baby’s chin towards your clogged duct?

    lorelaismom – I wish I could draw you a picture, its so much easier to explain. My nipples are HUGE so I have a similar problem. 1st – make sure the baby is opening his/her mouth WIDE before letting her/him latch. 2- you can try to grab your skin on either side of your nipple on the areola and stretch it gently side to side, making your nipple…[Read more]

    Amber – the playtex ones didnt’ work for my little one either. I just recently bought and tried the Smoothie kind, which is in the shape of the hospital pacifier and it worked!

    I agree with 1byfaith, BUT if you are on a budget, try the lansinoh double electric pump which is the exact replica of the Ameda PY, just marketed under a different name

    Talking about 18 and counting being a pro at bf’ing…I had to laugh because she has had PLENTY of practice!!!

    Miami – TRUST your body hon! We are beautiful creatures!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I think you may be having your phantom period, I am naturally an over-producer but when I had my ”period’ (I literally had like one drop of blood, sorry if TMI) I dropped low, to the point where I wasn’t pumping but 6 oz a day. My LO nursed at night for 1.5 hours!!! Then after my…[Read more]

    Im on maternity leave currently, and won’t go back to work until 09-15 when my LO is 6.5 weeks old. Right now I have a cheap EvenFlo electric pump and pumping about 24+oz a day plus breastfeeding. Currenlty, I am breastpump shopping for a good pump when I return to work. Well, looking for a rental and am having some difficulty. I was looking at…[Read more]

    I gained 19 pounds this pregnancy and lost 27. I was really really sick in the first trimester and have a really active job.

  • esyogurl replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 3 months ago

    number2- I have the same thing happen to me. I noticed I dream nurse more often with my L breast. Just keep pumping both sides so it’ll encourage more production ๐Ÿ™‚

    nikki – I was told in the hospital that sex is ok once the bleeding stops because beforehand it can cause an infection in your uterus. But otherwise, if you feel good and you are done bleeding go for it! I know I did HA HA HA

  • esyogurl replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 3 months ago

    try Mylicon. They even have an off brand one at Wal Mart same stuff (Simethicone) if its too spendy. I burp 1/2 way through feeding for gas, I can tell when my LO has a burp because she gets fussy and ‘sloppy’

  • esyogurl replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 3 months ago

    tory- yup, very normal especially when you are breastfeeding!

  • esyogurl replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 3 months ago

    xXxEXPLOxXx – I remember the first 6 weeks is a giant growth spurt for baby. In the PM babies cluster nurse to gear up for a longer sleep cycle. I wouldn’t feel bad about giving her a dummy – babies are soothed by sucking. Comfort nursing also stimulates supply – DD used to nurse for 1.5 hours in the PM and I know it gets frustrating but it will pass.

  • esyogurl replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 3 months ago

    I use the soothie ones they provide from the hospital and i have also tried the NUK pacifiers as well. I had never heard of overfeeding while nursing either, just thought about it last night when she spit up on me for the 3rd time that night ๐Ÿ™‚ the joys of parenthood.

  • esyogurl replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 3 months ago

    Some older babies like the faster milk flow, but my DD was throwing up (more than 1 oz worth of spit up) all over me every single time I nursed her. I figure she’ll stimulate more milk production when she wants it

  • esyogurl replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 3 months ago

    Has anyone had AF yet? My DD is 11 weeks Tuesday and I just very faintly started spotting, 2 days now. I was hopin to be one of those lucky gals!!!

  • esyogurl replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 3 months ago

    kelly- i had the same thing happen to me with my son in the hospital. They told me because he latched on crooked, and he was sucking more to the side of my nipple. It was a blood blister. It goes away in a week or so but its very uncomfortable. Lanolin helped ๐Ÿ™‚ Good luck
