    Seuban, I use the cross my heart hold. I hold the baby with the opposite hand/arm and use the same hand to hold my breast for the baby. Alex looks small here but he was 22in and almost 11lbs. My breasts are just big. I understand that loose feel cause mine are now sad as I like to call them. She needs to stop supplimenting and continue to nurse nonstop. She needs to practice the hold that works for her. I figured this out before I knew the hold had a name for it. My LC/doctor said it was the easiest for big breasts and weak little newborns. They don’t have the energy or strength to hold the breast.

    I have bought and tried a nipple shield but the tip seems to be really big and my LO keeps gagging on it and can’t latch on. How annoying! Maybe I should invest in a pump and pump the sore side for a bit? How on earth do I start doing that? When should I do it? At feeding time on the opposite breast of in between feeds from both breasts?

    lilmamamads – just keep nursing.. you can do it! The baby will increase your supply to satisfy his/her self IF you don’t supplement. Have a nursing wknd, spent in bed with boobs out for baby all day! lol!! I nursed twins for 1 year and 1 wk… I only stopped then because I was 17 wks along with my last baby and my Dr gave me orders to quit before 20 wks (since I was nursing two and had history of pre-term labor). He is now 7 months old and still EBF. My twin girls pretend to feed their dollies like mommy feeds odin. Its SO cute!

    tiff, my ped was pushing for neocate (one step further than alimentum). what you might consider is ordering a RAST test. you have to decide if its worth it to you or not, but basically they draw four vials of blood from your baby’s arm and that will tell you exactly what your baby is allergic to from the top eight allergens. more often than that its dairy. so if you dont want to do the test you can eliminate ALL dairy from your diet. that means no butter, milk, anythign in the ingredients that says whey, casein, lactose, etc. it will take two weeks for it to clear out of your breastmilk and then you will start to notice a difference. its a long process but worth it. good luck!

    mjohnson33- Every baby eats for different times, theres no set time limit, as long as they are satisfied id say hes good! Fenugreek works really well too if you want to try that to increase it does take a few days, sometimes to work. if you have to supplement with some formula for now to make sure he gets enough then thats what you have to do. You dont want to be stressing about it all the time, i can imagine it would be really hard to work and have to pump and make sure your pumping enough, so until you can increase your supply if he has to have some then thats what you got to do!

sydbabe – Your chances are high. Most women can breastfeed. Now that you have this site then with any problems come here! I had so many in the beginning. My son couldn’t latch for over two months but we made it work. He is now almost 21months and just now weaning. He’s self weaning which I’m proud to say. As for the pain with the first. It can be painful for many reasons. If you had a bad latch and because baby couldn’t get it right it just ended up painful or you might be very sensitive. My son was awful and it hurt like Hell. But, after a few weeks it got better. Then there was no pain at all. Another reason could have been a case of Thrush which is a yeast infection that cause pain. It feel like needles on the breast. I’ve had it before and it hurts. I’ve never felt that much pain in my life. This time around if you do have pain doctor to your lacation consultant or doctor. They can help you work through what is causing the pain or diagnose Thrush if it happens. A little meds and you are good to go. I got an awesome ointment that literally had my breasts feeling better within one dose. Anyways, breastmilk is so good for the baby. Don’t let the previous experience dampen your efforts. Each baby and time is different. This time you may have the best sucker. You may leave the hospital with little or no pain at all. Oh and always remember lanolin is a breastfeeding mom’s best friend.

shira – It can take some women a while to get used to pumping. Something that was suggested to me when I had to pump and wanted to get more out was to smell a shirt or something that your little one has worn, and/or look at a picture. The best for me, although I don’t recommend it, was listening to Ava cry. Unfortunately I am usually the only one home so when I had to pump every 2 hours because she wasn’t breastfeeding, I had to let her cry in her bassinet sometimes, which gave me lots of let downs.

A question for all you extended breastfeeders. I’m still nursing my 13 month old… and plan to continue. I’m also 6 months pregnant. I don’t know if it’s a combination of our little guys teeth and the pregnancy, but it HURTS when I nurse him on my left side. And it’s just my left side! I’ve tried positioning him in all sorts of ways, but it’s not working. It’s awful because he favors my left side. I’m in SO much pain, but just grin and bear it until he’s finished or falls asleep. Have any of you had this problem?! I don’t know what to do. He’s not ready to wean, and I’m not ready to give up. Anyone with advice… please reply on my VIP page. =) Thanks ladies!

My babys almost 4 months old and I still have 30 lbs to loose. I’m pumping as much as I can and walking every day. How do I get the rest off? I thought it would just come off. Anyone have any advice?

I love breastfeeding and will do it whereever I am when my boys get hungry. If I’m near my truck I just jump in the back seat and do it, but I’ve done it in restaurants (in a booth) and at the department store near the changing room. I don’t see a problem with it and no one has ever noticed, not even people sitting with me at the same table.
