    Oh, no blisters or cracks yet. I keep checking though. I think it hurts because he’s used to the nipple on the bottles.

    Hi Ladies, I have a question… My son is only a week old and my bb became really engorged so i pumped to relieve it, and put it in a bottle so he could eat because he wouldn’t latch on. So now Im frustrated because he is preferring the bottle over the bb. Any ideas or suggestions on getting him back to just the bb? Thank you in advance 🙂

    I have to say Bio-oil is the best thing ever LOL. It really does work at keeping the stretch marks away. And it helps fade the old ones. I use it faithfully every day. I’ve also started using Earth Mama Angel Baby natural stretch oil. It’s all natural and you can also massage it on your perineal area during or before labor. Just thought I’d share…[Read more]

    Does anyone have some home remedies for thrush? Until I can get to a doctor Monday morning. I hate to keep giving my ds Tylenol. Any info would be helpful on how to ease his pain.

    Kym22- I also have an older PIS. I recently visited an authorized medela retailer (little quaint shop) and she informed me of a offer, where you can turn in your old PIS for a pretty decent discount off a new model! They are trying to discourage the using of used and old models. As soon as I get enough to get one that what I plan on doing. I don’t…[Read more]

    Yea I think he is… I squeeze then he latches and feeds. I have to make an indent where his nose is so he can breathe. It’s just towards the end of his feed when he really gums on my nipple. Well maybe hes a really hard sucker because my nipple is elongated and flat by time he is done. I don’t know, I think I really threw him off when I threw a…[Read more]

    Thank you guys for all your helpful comments. I guess it’s just hard when your sleep deprived and you really don’t want to have you bbs ‘chomped on’ LOL. But today he has been on the bb for every feeding. I’m just sucking up the little moments of pain when he feeds. I just keep telling myself it will get better. I haven’t pumped because he feeds…[Read more]

    Hi Ladies, I need a little advice / pep talk. My ds is 3 weeks old and is feeding every hour on the hour for I’d say the past week. I’m getting really exhausted and drained. My bbs hurt as well as my nipples. I’ve been pumping and giving it to him in a bottle because I feel like I just can’t keep up. I feel like I’m failing at this whole bf thing.…[Read more]

  • So I’m 34 weeks and wondering the delivery options when one has GD? Is it just an automatic c section?Or do we get induced early and deliver vaginally? I understand each delivery and pregnancy is different, I guess I’m just looking for the possible scenerios that could happen. So if any one would like to share I would greatly appreciate it :smile
