• As far as how long it takes foods to get into your milk for me it was always 12 hours. My son reacted to dairy, nuts, tomato products and cabbage and it was always right around 12 hours from when I ate it that he would get really gassy and fussy. I’ve read that it can take anywhere from 4-24 hours though so everyone is a little different. I…[Read more]

  • mommy: The general rule is an hour per drink, unless your drink was super strong. As long as you don’t feel intoxicated it is safe to nurse. If you want to pump to be on the safe side you can freeze the milk and if it freezes completely then you will know that it is safe for your baby because if it does have alcohol in it it won’t freeze solid.…[Read more]

  • DeeRod and Sunshine Maria: It’s perfectly normal for an older baby to nurse for 5-10 minutes total. The older they get the more efficient. I also remember worrying as Travis got older that he wasn’t eating as much but he still had tons of wet diapers and was gaining weight so I decided he must have figured out how to get more faster. Whenever…[Read more]

  • Sorry I have been MIA for so long! I miss my breastfeeding Mommies but I have a new obsession…. Couponing!!! Seriously, it has taken over my life. If anyone is interested I have an amazing website for couponers. (WARNING: it is totally addictive). So anyway, I hope everyone is doing wonderfully and although I don’t post here much anymore…[Read more]

  • MrsB: Just keep trying, that’s about all you can do. Chances are if he’s nursing and his mouth hurts that might be why he’s refusing to nurse. You could try giving him something cold to chew on first to numb his mouth a little (although it will of course be a little bit of a shock for you if he does nurse with a frozen mouth :-)). You could…[Read more]

  • parkersmommy: I made a paste with the acidophilus for my son when he had resistent thrush and it was the only thing that finally got rid of it. I’m not sure if thrush causes the lips to be swollen though, with my son it was always just the white spots and I’ve read that if you scrape them off they can get red and bloody, just not sure what the…[Read more]

  • Sorry, I know this isn’t about breastfeeding and I won’t post again about this, just wanted the share the site I had mentioned, it’s afullcup.com and I created a group for everyone from here so I can help you with that site if you need it (It’s a couponing website). Just send me a message on here with your username on there and I’ll add you!

  • masonnickey: Congrats on choosing to breastfeed!!! Nursing pads are definitely a must in the beginning. Also if you’re getting backaches you might want to try using a better pillow, or if you have a nursing pillow put another pillow underneath it to help prop your little one up closer to you so you’re not leaning over to nurse. It takes…[Read more]

  • angela: It was around 3 months for me when most of the leaking stopped and then very rarely up until about 5 months I would occassionally leak, just when I least expected it!
