    Question: Should I let my 16 day old baby empty one breast and offer the other one if she wants it or switch from one to another after some time passes by?

    Lawson’s mom…I remember that happening with my son at about 5 months also. I had been back to work for 3 months and pumping and I do thin he was starting to test the waters to see if he could just do bottle. What we did (and I would end up in tears every time) was to give him his pacifier just to get him sucking and calm. Then we would hold it really close to the nipple and do a quick switch (my husband would help). After a few trials of this then he would be back to nursing (although we cycled through it a few times over the months). He ended up nursing for 13 months…

    Guess I’m opposite some of you ladies who want VBACs, because my next I want a cesarean. I had a vaginal birth and it was an awful experience for me personally. I had so much trauma to my vagina- 9mons later I am still in pain. I can’t have intercourse with my husband and have actually been going to physical therapy to try and help. I will never have another vaginal birth again. I had wished it was different for me.

    I saw that this morning. It makes me sick. How on earth does the other celeb moms breastfeed then? You rarely see a photo of one feeding, unless she wants you to. It’s crazy! Just makes me shake my head and think of the little baby that was doing really well on breastfeeding. I bet all the moms here that couldn’t feed or have to suppliment would rather be in her place of being uncomfortable to NIP rather then not be able to at all.

    Hi ladies! I have been trying to catch up on reading and you have answered many of my questions without me asking except one: When do you resume your intimacy with your husbands? My DD will be 6 weeks old tomorrow and I feel ready. I am a little ashamed of leaking but I think I can get passed it.

    Inlove wow my oldest didn’t sleep like that at 1! Ollie has put himself on a 3 hour feed during the day last couple of days, apart from evening time. Then its a any time! During the night he is still on every 2 hours. I think I’m used to no sleep now. Both boys have napped same time as each other last two days so have sat on settee and relaxed whilst they were sleeping.

    jessica-i think leaving the two of them alone would be good for both of them. men are much better than we give them credit for when they’re dumped in the deep end to swim. if you want to go out for an hour or two take a cell phone if you have it and call and check in or tell him to call if he needs anything at all. if no cell go somewhere he could call if he needs you. it doesn’t hurt to get away every once in a while.

    scarlet begonia – I worked with my first. I pumped until he was 15 months when we were fin. stable enough for me to be home. I know it’s hard work. It’s stressful and frustrating. I also had a very supportive employer. I think if it were law then these employers would HAVE to be more supportive. There would be laws in place to help lactating moms. A lot would have to change. I know it’s not going to happen but one could only hope. The FDA has pulled medications off the market because of less risky side effects then what formula can do. If the minds of Americans and the world would change and think of formula more like medicine rather then a food then ideals would change. People’s beliefs have to change first before any law would work well.

    Well, that’s the last time I will be too lazy to check this site in 24 hours. Eight pages, a fight, a (incredibly ridiculous) insult, and several questions I knew the answer too later…here I am. It took an hour to catch up! LOL. Wait. Let me go refresh the page before I type my brief responses.

    Does anyone have this problem, or is it just my computer. I’ll come onto this forum and the messages won’t be updated so I have to reload the page?!?!

    yeah i thought about what i would do if i ever was confronted with feeding someone else’s starving baby. at first i thought no way but then i thought no way could i let a baby go hungry if i could help it.

    My LO is almost 3 months, and she was pulling off crying for the first and sometimes second feeds of the day for almost a week. I was thinking about posting here asking the same question as to why she was doing it. She would make it through the first letdown usually, but after that it was a no go, so I don’t think the letdown was too strong. Now I’m guessing she wasn’t really that hungry, and that was the only way she knew to end it. The last few days she just pulls off and starts ‘talking’ to me instead of crying. I think she’s just learning now how to tell me she’s done instead of nursing until she falls asleep.

    Goats milk is much closer to human milk than cows milk is. But dog gone it is SOOOO expensive.
