    anniemarie: Some mums milk doesnt freeze well. I know Bris doesnt and she pumps ( when she was working ) what she needed for the next day only. Has it smelt before? I wouldn use smelly milk either. If it happens again maybe your unlucky and it doesnt freeze. Or maybe that batch wasnt sealed properly and went sour?

    ctwany29: I would think ( i could be wrong) that you would not be able to breastfeed while on pain medication? Also what about the anaestetic?

    I pumped 4 ounces this morning! YAYYYYY
    I think i finally have my supply up.
    Now if i could just get her back on the boob instead of bottles it would save me sooo much work. I dont know how you mums exclusively pump!

    My boobs are HUGE again so i think i am close to getting a good supply back.. YAY!!! Just today they seem massive like they were before..

    anniemarie: I would wait until you have calmed down and then approach the same lady and tell her you got the impression from your conversation that they have a problem with you coming to feed your son through the day and ask what the reason may be. At least if you approach her in a non confrontational way you have a better chance of finding out…[Read more]

    kater: Thanks so much. That totally makes sense and i will get some newborn teats tomorrow and make it harder for her to take the bottle. I didnt actually think of that. Sometimes it is a few words that can give you the strength to keep perservering so thankyou. Ill keep you posted on how things go when i get back from holidays in 2 weeks.

    jcjm: My little girl prefers the bottle after she has it so i have stopped giving it to her unless i have to ( like when i go out and leave her at home) and she is 7 months. I try to make sure i always feed her from the breast and after a few feeds she forgets about the bottle again until next time. It is hard when they are fussing becasue they…[Read more]

    natesmomma ;I found if your getting headaches the best thing is ti drink more water. I take motilium and breastfeeding tea and as it increases your supply you need to drink more water as well or you get headaches. They will stop as soon as you drink more. Hope it helps…

    M.M.Masi: That is the cutest thing i have ever heard that your boys hold hands while breastfeeding. I would love to see a photo of it. Too cute!
    Now I have been breastfeeding for 5 months now and just these past few days Emerson is feeding 2-3 times during the night ( instead of once) and feeding every hour and a half through the day. I know its…[Read more]

    Deerod: Emerson is only 6 months old and i think she is self weaning as well. I have always had to suppliment at stages due to supply issues. Lately it is more and more as she is more interested in a bottle. I always feed her first and sometimes she seems content until bedtime then i top her up and lately no matter what she will want a formula top…[Read more]

    Well all you mummies must be out enjoying your Easter morning… Im off to bed and i hope the Easter Bunny is good to you. Have a great day and ill check in in the morning. 🙂

    I would LOVE to have your problem of not gaining weight. Well i havent gained but its certainly not falling off either! Thats like winning lotto 🙂

  • ozbaby replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 7 months ago

    3rd Timer: At 13 months you can give your little one cows milk instead of formula. No need to giove formula past 12 months.
    Not sure about self weaning as we are only 5 months into breastfeeding but with my other 2 kids they went from formula to cows milk after 12 months.

    Do babies have another growth spurt round 5 months? Emerson has been feeding every 3 hours through night this past few days and yesterday and today it was every hour and a half through the day. Its like she cant get enough. And she grunts and gets annoyed when my milk doesnt let down quickly enough. She scares me! ha ha

    Thanks Bri.
    What will you do if he doesnt want to wean at 2? Will you wean him or keep feeding?

  • ozbaby replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 7 months ago

    anniemarie: If it is home day care maybe she didnt want to feel restricted by you coming to her home in the middle of the day. if she takes him out it would maybe inconvenience her waiting for you to feed. Id ask her wether you got the job or not… Im curious now….

  • ozbaby replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 3 years, 7 months ago

    Thanks girls. But what is neosporin ? I have never heard of it? Im assuming an antibacterial cream?
