    btw- ash- Calvin is stunning!! Congrats. I see he’s 7 days old… I agree you should keep trying to offer the breast, maybe one day he’ll get it and you’ll get the added bonus of bonding with him as opposed to your pump! lol. Good luck, either way.

    Someone recently mentioned to me that Moringa is a good galactagogue as well as an all around good supplement. Anyone know anything about it in regards to bf’ing?

    Lannie – congrats! It just keeps getting easier!

    Bri – he looks so proud of himself! And Chris’ little twigs of hair sticking up in the background…I love thin little toddler hair that sticks up. So sweet!

    I’m glad you other ladies posted that your little one’s were barely sitting up at that time.. Zoey will be 6 months on the 11th and she sits unaided now but doesn’t even dream of crawling…[Read more]

    Bri, I’ve seen you say a few times that your milk doesn’t keep/freeze well. How do you know? I’d hate to feed Zoey bad milk without knowing it.

    Zoey (13 weeks) has started holding her bottles with her left hand (the right hand stays tucked into her chest…she used to keep them both in fists, pulled close to her chest). Anyway…now, when I nurse her (90% of the time), she holds my boob like a bottle! Adorable!

    Not bf’ing related, but I need to vent! Zoey’s dad left his ex about a year and a half ago. He has 4 year old twins with her. I’ll preface this by saying I am not at all concerned that either of them have feelings for each other. But, it really bothers me that he does so much for her. He picked the twins up from HER parents on a day she was…[Read more]

    I wish I had a massage voucher. I got a massage when I was 16 weeks pregnant….ahhhhhhh. And he was cute! I called my mom and told her I was in love… her response? ‘Yeah, I fell in love during a massage once too. It’ll pass.’ LOL! Enjoy!

    CT Scan was this morning – we’ll know results in a couple of days. It was a breeze. He had a cool flashy wand thing that he gave her dad to tap against the machine and she was so preoccupied by that, she never even moved. She was kinda cute all bundled up in the little machine. It took five seconds. No big deal! The drive was the worst part (45…[Read more]

    lol I was snuggling with Zoey’s dad last night while he slept and I watched tv. He had his hand on my lower stomach and I was zoning out. Then I felt a twitch and it freaked me out! lol. It felt just like the early kicks! I had to mentally reassure myself that I am NOT pregnant (IUD still in place!) but aaaaaah. It was a terrifying feeling. lol. I…[Read more]

    Ash – Zoey’s almost 14 weeks now. She’s asleep on my chest and all I can think is there’s no way she’d fit back in my belly now! lol. Enjoy every moment!

    I’ve got an Ameda Purely Yours pump that I got free from WIC. I can’t help but wonder if a PIS would help with my supply. The Purely Yours is better than the single electric Avent I have, but I am contemplating spending money I don’t really have to spend and getting a PIS. It seems to be the pump all the mom’s have. Opinions? Has anyone heard any…[Read more]

    Mine took 5 days to come in!

  • seuban0 replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 1 year, 10 months ago

    Here we are at 4 am,,,,woke up because I felt Zoey burning up next to me. She’s only 102.1 but I still feel like that is pretty warm. That’s taken under the arm, added a degree. I can’t find the rectal thermometer and her dad has the forehead thermometer at his house. He’ll be up in a couple of hours though, so I’m going to try not to panic (first…[Read more]

  • seuban0 replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 1 year, 10 months ago

    I know it must seem like a pain to have so much milk, ladies, but I am soooo jealous. I’m headed back to work next week and I would do pretty much anything to be able to just leak an extra 18 ounces. Zoey still wants to nurse/suckle pretty constantly so I don’t have much time to pump. So the first few days of work are going to be rough. I’ve got…[Read more]

  • seuban0 replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 1 year, 10 months ago

    Lol. Zoey’s 4 months and her priority is still FOOD. She doesn’t care what’s going on around her more than she cares about getting that little belly full. Guess I should count my blessings!

  • seuban0 replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 1 year, 10 months ago

    precious – yeah, normally I have her right with me. However, my sister was cooking it was making Zoey sneeze so I opted to put her in a different room to make her more comfortable. Go figure. She wasn’t more comfortable at all.

    My 22nd birthday is on the 19th…I’ve decided to buy myself an Ergo to celebrate! It’s the only thing I can think of that I want. Lol. Ahhhhh how motherhood changes your desires! lol.

  • seuban0 replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 1 year, 10 months ago

    illy2- nothing that I know of! Try stimulating her with a rectal thermometer. That’s what they had me do with Zoey at 3 months.

  • seuban0 replied to the topic Breastfeeding in the forum Babies Forum 1 year, 10 months ago

    Okay, ladies. This isn’t BF related, but I know and trust you guys more than some of the other forums, so I thought I’d seek input here.
    Zoey is 4 months old today. For the past few weeks, I’ve been imagining her death. Fearing. But not like normal being afraid something will happen to your baby. Instead, any time she’s quiet (in the car, taking…[Read more]
