    Just curious everyone opinion on the seasonal flu shot and the h1n1 flu shot. I am 2 months pregnant and I have a 3 yr old son. I have decided against the h1n1 shot for both of us. I am still on the fence about getting the seasonal flu shot for me, but I thought i would get it for my son. However, his immune system is not the best and I’m a…[Read more]

    Ladies…if you ever have to give your lo bm in a bottle, which brand bottles work well for you. I bought breastflow but haven’t tried them yet. Any suggestions??

    QUESTION: My 3 yr old DS is sick. If I give him a few ounces of BM from my frozen stash, will it help him get better?

  • nic4charles replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 6 months ago

    Help..my DS will be 14 days tomorrow. He still wants to nurse ALL THE TIME. During the day it’s pretty much every hour, sometimes 2 (or 3 if he’s sleeping). At night he does one 4 hr stretch, then every 2-3 hrs. But he usually only nurses fir 5-7 min. Sometimes 10, 15 rarely. I was afraid my milk was gone after 5 min, but I can express milk…[Read more]

    DS is 2 1/2 weeks. He has been very fussy today & gassier than usual. Should I assume it was something I ate this morning??

    Hello ladies. I have a question. I think that I have a milk blister. This is new to me, my second breastfed child and I have never experienced this before. It’s like a little raised bump kinda red on the outer part & more whitish in the middle. Located on my areola (sp?). And it hurts SO bad!!! I have been putting a warm compress on it and…[Read more]

    My 5 1/2 week old is ebf and I was wondering about his poop. He doesn’t have that ‘seedy’ look. It’s mostly liquid sometimes a little consistency. Is it ok not to have the ‘seedy’ look? Also, today he had one that looked like it had almost stringy (sort of hard to describe) consistency…

    Ok ladies…what’s the ‘trick’ when it comes to pumping. I have such a hard time. My LO has been eating less at night, so I am trying to pump at least 1 time at night. I have a Avent manual. I only get about 1 oz from 1 side & it’s misery getting it out. My nipples hurt & turn purple & I never get my milk to let down. Hmmm…..not sure what…[Read more]

    Ladies, please help. I am really concerned about my 8 week old DS. My entire household is pretty sick with a nasty cold. I am terrified of my LO getting it. This morning he sounds just a tad congested & coughing just a bit. Shouldn’t he be protected by my BM? I thought he would be, but now I’m getting really worried……

    QUESTION–My LO is almost 3 months & I still nurse him every 2 hours. And he gets up usually 2 times at night. Should I stretch out his feedings more?? My family thinks I’m crazy for feeding him every 2 hours still. I think it’s good for him, keeps up my supply & I figure if he sleeps good at night that I don’t want to change anything. But I…[Read more]
