• babydoll – bummer, I was holding out hope for you. I may right with you at some point today.

  • Yay for another BFP! Congratulations. Turtle – I have the enteropathic arthritis with my UC as well… – sitting at a desk is hard enough through the day – you are right, going back to that type of nursing would be very hard. I am worried that some of my pg symptoms are really just the UC starting to show its ugly face again.. the arthritis…[Read more]

    nadisha — same thing happened to me, and my MIL had to feed my baby when she was drifting to sleep – she would unknowingly suck. She finally started taking bottles better – MAM bottles are great, the nipples are ‘silky’ and the are contoured – to get milk from the bottle they have to suck in the same way they would at the breast.

    Hi ladies — how long after your period is your output low? Last week I had my first one, and had a dip – today, I have only pumped about 4 oz… I would usually have about 7-8 oz by now. I’m nervous, I went through my freezer supply last week…

    hi megang — express some milk and rub on it in between each time, and also use something like Lansinoh lanolin cream each time – you don’t have to wipe it off before your baby eats.

    My baby was ridiculously gassy all the time… she kind of still is at 5 months. My doc says its normal…

    Ladies, I am so upset, and you all are the only ones that will understand. I have been battling supply issues for the past month and have been posting about it. I have tried all of the herbs, eating and drinking more – even Even ovaltine, but no luck in increasing. This all started in mid-August I was on vacation for a week and happy to be…[Read more]

    amber — my LO wouldn’t take one when I went back to work, and the only way my in-laws could get her to eat was as she was drifting to sleep – pop it in, and the sucking reflex takes over. I’m a HUGE fan of MAM bottles, that is the only one my LO would take when awake.
    Jamie – the same thing happened to me a few weeks ago with my LO, but it…[Read more]

    I didn’t get AF until 5.5 months… my supply took a pretty good drop from it.

    Hi — just one side not on fenugreek – I would be sure to try it on a day when you are going to be at home first… a bit of tmi but it messed up my stomach really bad, and it came on very suddently – I read a bit more online about it and this is a side effect for some. My LO is 7.5 months old, and I am still pumping at work – I have had a few…[Read more]

    felicia, I feel for you so much. I was to travel to London in January for work, and as much as I have always wanted to go it has been making me feel sick and worried all the time – i found out yesterday it was being canceled and was so relieved. My LO is 7 months, and sleeps through the night, but she nurses in the morning and in the evening,…[Read more]

    I work full-time and have the Pump in Style as well. I love it. It has worked really well for me – and if you have a Burlington near you – a few times through the year they have 25% off Medela products, so I was able to get mine for a good price.

    Miami — I had the same problem and my LOs poop was the same way – my doc wasn’t too concerned. I did start pumping 2 or 3 minutes before I fed the baby to get some more of the foremilk off, and then I did block feeding. I marked the foremilk bags in the freezer, and when I went back to work, I would use one 3 oz bag of it a day, and split it up…[Read more]

    Thanks Lilli… unfortunately I don’t have a freezer supply anymore. She was taking 16-17 oz a day, and I was only pumping about 12 or so. But, mystery may be solved, I got my period for the first time today. Hopefully, that explains the extreme dip.

    DH has loved this week because its ‘the week’ to try… last night I couldn’t sleep – exhuasted, but wide awake – happened the past 2 times I got preggo so I am hoping it caught this week… the waiting is killer
