  • I have never posted on this fourm but I wanted share my experience incase it could helps someone else. After my second child my AF was all over the place. Anywhere from 16 days to 30 days.

    I hear a lot of people recommend kellymom.com but I wanted to also say that http://www.drjacknewman.com is also a great site. It has tons of video clips on getting a correct latch, plus a lot of great information.

    Any one know if an expectorant (Musinex or Robitussin) can lower your milk supply?

    My guy is almost 11 months old and I have noticed that every time he gets a new tooth it hurts when I nurse him for about a week then everything seems to be fine. Wondering if anyone has experienced this and if there is anything I can do to avoid the pain? He isn’t biting me or anything. I am guessing the tooth is rubing because he isn’t use to it.

    torybailey: My son has acid reflux and I also had to go off of dairy until he was 10 months old. Dairy takes about two weeks to totally be out of your system so keep that in mind. If your son ends up having reflux they can give him medication to help. But really if he is gaining fine, doesn’t seem to be in pain and has plenty of wet diapers…[Read more]

    My little boy is 1 year old today. Boy did that go fast! Bfing was huge challenge with his acid reflux (constant pulling off and throwing everything up) but I am so glad I stuck with it. Just want to encourage anyone Bfing a baby with acid reflux to hang in there it will get better and it is totally worth it. Happy Birthday little man!!!

    Both of my kids took the multi. vitamins with fluoride. We have no fluoride in our water where I live. The dentist told me that he can always spot a child that has a lack of fluoride in their diet. Plus my husband has had to have a lot of dental work done and his dentist told him that it was do to lack of fluoride when he was a kid.

    mandarae: My son takes medication for his reflux that causes him to be constipated from time to time. I found that as long as I give him prunes a few times a week he has no problems.

    An expectorant isn’t drying like a decongestant. It just thins the mucus so you can cough it up. I am pretty sure it doesn’t effect your supply but I just wanted to hear from others. My baby has RSV and will only nurse right now (refuses all soilds) so I don’t want to take anything that will lower my supply. But on the other hand I have asthma…[Read more]

    bedrest: Both my kids would eat until they threw up. I ended up finding out that my son has silent reflux and that he was nursing so much to soothe his pain. I hear moms all the time say you can’t over feed a breastfed baby but that wasn’ t true in my case. My son is now 9 months old and still nurses 8+ times a day.

    I have medication questions. Alright my son in 5 months old and we found out he has silent reflux when he was 2 months old (after an upper gi). So he started out on prevacid 1/2 tablet a day and that helped but he would still be fussy during the night and hardly slept. Then we switched him to prevacid 15 mg 1/2 in am and 1/2 in pm. It helped…[Read more]

    My 6 month old has RSV. I was wondering how long it takes for them to start breathing better.

    Catherine from BC: I found this for you online. The blood is caused by slight internal bleeding due to increased blood flow and development of the breast tissue in late pregnancy and is most common in first time mothers. It is more common in both breasts though it can happen in one breast. It is usually painless. This form of blood in the breast…[Read more]
