    is it normal for a week old baby to feed for 4-5 hours straight with only 30 minute breaks at the most in between feedings. i know she is getting good milk because when she comes off she has milk running down her face…..i’m just so worn out from feeding her. when she is awake she is constantly rooting and crying. its like she can’t get enough. i feel so frustrated and feel like she is going to rip off my nipples with as much as she is feeding. i’m hoping things will get better soon. i would just like for others to enjoy my baby but its so hard because anytime she is awake she is feeding pretty much even if its only been 15 or 30 minutes since her last feeding.

    momofcash – I haven’t but I’ve been thinking about it. In the Seattle area we have multiple. I could go to a meeting once a week if I wanted to! HAHA!

    Seriously, LawsonsMom- something seems to happen to you everyday. I really think that you need to go to your boss and explain to him/her that it is a necessity to have somewhere to pump. I think it is really ridiculous what you seem to be going through, and i think you should speak up to them more about it.

    babybean and seuban, I have allergies too, and try not to take anything most of the time, but when they get too bad, I do take Claritin. My doctor and pharmacist both told me it was okay, and I haven’t noticed a drop in supply at all- but do keep in mind I have more milk than I need in the first place.

    We need sun too! I can’t believe it’s already mid June! Seriously? This time last year we would be playing in our pool instead of hiding inside. You know it rains too much when your son wakes up and asks if it’s stopped raining. He’ll go over to the window and say ‘look not raining no more’. When it’s clear! I know double negative but he’s only two. HAHA! We get these sun breaks every once in a while and it’s blinding. We’ve only had a handful of good weather all year. Blah! Time for summer, dang it!

    ella15 – How old is she? Is this new or something that has been going on. The nursing strike could be because she isn’t well, teething or a number of other issues. Keep offering it. Do pump, even if she doesn’t drink it. You don’t want supply to go down while on strike. You can use compression nursing to get the flow going faster. It’s so hard to fix a problem when I’m not right there! Have you called an LC to look and see what’s going on?

    Balsamfir- It is very interesting isn’t it, breastmilk? In your case with the sore throat, who know., I’d try it though, I don’t think it’s gross at all, after all it is YOUR breastmilk. It’s not like breastmilk tastes all that bad either! One girl did tell me once that breastmilk is great for diaper rashes, just aim and fire, LOL!

    Luv2b~ Sorry! My son is only 3 weeks so i am trying to convince my body it needs more milk, that way when I go back to work in 3 weeks I will hopefully be able to pump enough for him or at least have enough in my freezer for him to be good until wemovein Sept.

    Lexi- I swear by the drop-ins. I used them with my son and now with my daughter. My daughter is almost 10 weeks old and goes back and forth (bottle to breast) with no problem.

    laura, I usually move him at some point during the night so he can eat off the other side. One night though, I was surprised that he managed to get the boob that was farther away by himself. I am a stomach sleeper, so I guess I was on my side, but leaning towards my belly, so the boob was hanging at the perfect height for him…

    I like to catch the View in the morning. It’s my daily dose of drama. HAHA! My husband HATES that I watch it in front of the boys. Then I don’t get to watch until dinner time ish. That’s when we get Mommy and Daddy TV. Most of the summer it’s baseball. But we gotta watch new Dirty Jobs and Pawn Stars. Other then that I don’t watch. Oh and I used to watch Dancing with the Stars but I’m not hooked. If I am available to watch then great but if not I’m not going to cry. HAHA!
