    thanks bri, am trying the oats in the morning, so yuk!!

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

    yes i believe it works like that. at one stage i was eating load of crap, no fruit etc and i started to feel run down and wasnt producing that much milk. which is understandable if im not eating enough good stuff. my doc said that what ever i eat baby gets all the good out of it and what ever is left is for my body. so i now try to force feed…[Read more]

    sorry.. another question. my son slept through the night since he was 4 weeks, he is now 7 months and 2 weeks ago he got a blocked nose, so he started to wake a few times during the night. at some point during the night he gets hysterical (around 5.00) and i feed him to calm him down, now he still does it. he still has a bit of a cold but i dont…[Read more]

    i think there is always goin to be people to judge on how long to bf. my best friend, who has 3 kids said she found it weird that i didnt feed my child food until 6 months. same as my mother in law. i shouldnt have listen to them and spent weeks worried, when it was recommended to e bf for 6 months. i think youve got to go with what youre feeling…[Read more]

    i was so sick when i gave birth that the nurses had to feed my son formula or the first 4 days. when i started bf he lached on straight away, so i got lucky he seemed to know what to do. but the 1st 3 weeks were painful, so i used Lanolin cream and it worked like a treat. i stopped using it after 4 weeks and now my nipples feel nothing after 6 months.

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

    ladies,ive been breast feeding for nearly 6 months now.Im goin to start my son on solids at 6 months. i dont know where to begin. bf is great especially when he is cranky or fussy,or restless, if i put him on the boob he just calms down. i dont know what im goin to do when i have to ween him off. my boobs seems to be a comfort to him.

    i know my son find it hard to feed when he has a blocked nose, he cant breathe properly. he kept coming off and going back on. also his teeth would stop him feeding right.

  • notsmithers replied to the topic in the forum Group logo of Trying To ConceiveTrying to Conceive Forum 3 years, 6 months ago

    yea, im pregnant and still bf my 7 month old son and was told its totally ok. i can even bf the two kids if i want to! i think a miscarrage is rare bc of bf. but im sure if you keep your fruit and veg intake up it will be fine. personally i dont think i will bf far into my pregnancy bc i was huge on Nathan and wont be able to cope trying to get…[Read more]
