I am a working mom and need 2 sleep so I started two weeks b4 I planned. Ne way, once I started the cereal, when she woke up for her 2 am feeding I would give her a binky 2 c if she was hungry.…[Read more]

    I feel you scarlet. I want to go on but feelin a little discouraged. Made it to 6 mos now its very difficult for me to stop what I’m doing at work to pump. My supply is suffering for it too. Sigh. Scarlet I saved you as a friend on fb.

    Maddux – Good question. The first time we did the do my lo was 3 weeks and my boobs were leaking like a faucet!!! We laughed and the hubby stayed away. That time. But eventually the letdown will regulate and you can go back to using them as foreplay at nite and food during the day. LOL.

    Scarlett – She is standing unassisted ALREADY!?! Wow she is sooo cute and advanced. Get ready to put your skates on! LOL

    Scarlet – My supply always gets low at the end of the work week too. I think its because during the weekends my lo nurses like crazy and by the end of the week my supply needs her suckling to boost it back up. Don’t get discouraged dear heart. You are doing a wonderful job and should be very proud of yourself. Working and breastfeeding is very difficult.

    I understand being an advocate for breastfeeding but I don’t make it my life work. I try to be an example and educate new mothers on the importance of breastfeeding. If they are unwilling to do so then I let it go. Everyone has to live their own lives. Being a mom is hard all on its own. No one needs the additional pressure of being judged and…[Read more]

    Lawsons – Stay encouraged. You are doing a great job as a mom and have overcome sooo many obstacles. You and Keri just have to sit down and talk through this. This too shall pass. Lawson will crawl when she gets good and ready to. Its a nice milestone but boy do they start to get into everything when they are mobile. LOL

    Hi ladies! I have a quick question not bf related. Jazz is almost 7 mos and recently began suffering from separation anxiety. My girlfriend watched her and she hollered for the whole three hours. She instantly stopped crying when she saw me. I hav a nice extended family that wants to spend time with her but everyone is getting scared she is gonna…[Read more]

    My baby crys for hours between 4 to 8 am. It appears to be gas and now everyone is encouraging me to stop breastfeeding. I luv bf and so does she. Gas doesn’t bother her during the day and mylicon drops aren’t working. I tried Gripe Water which calms her but she has loose stools at every feeding from the Gripe Water. I bf her upright and burp…[Read more]

    babynight – I am a working mom so I pump as close to my los schedule as possible. I try to pump every 3 hours. That works best for me due to her schedule, my breaks and by then I am feeling quite ummmm full! seub – I co-slept until 3 mos partly becuz I was nervous about my hubby and I both sleeping in the bed with lo. So baby was in and hubby…[Read more]

    Also I did not plan on co sleeping but unfortunately I had a c section and was unable to climb the stairs where the bassinet was and it did not fit in the guest room downstairs. Further if you wait unti six mos to stop co sleeping its more difficult and will be harder on your lo. Lastly it is not wise to judge people. Different things work for…[Read more]

    Mad – I understand your problem. I left my lo at 8 wks pp and she is now 5 mos 3 wks and still ebf. My work day is 7-4 sometimes as late as 5. The best thing for me is trying to pump when dd eats. I work in an office so its not that bad to get away. I feed dd b 4 I leave then pump at lunch about 11 and then again at 2. I am normally home for the…[Read more]

    MyBaby – Surpising enough Gripe Water doesn’t work well for my LO. It gave her the runs and didn’t calm her for long. It may just be the brand Im using but the runs made me too nervous.

    benhubby – I am getting ready for a flight too and I am nervous as hell! My lo is the exact same way, busy as all get out. I mean you would think the child knows how to at least crawl as busy as she is! Our only plan of action is to bring lots of toys and snacks.
