    thanks ladies! also i am proud to say my little one has finally learned how to latch on correctly! i have been using a nipple shield from pretty much week two because my nipples were completely scabbed over and purple and hurting SO bad that breastfeeding was such a pain literally. everytime she would latch on i would tense up and cry it would hurt so bad because of improper latch. my nipples healed up really good and i had been scared to see if she could latch on right since. well yesterday i tried it and she latched on beautifully and has been doing it correctly ever since. so much better and such an enjoyable experience now that we have fixed the problems! 🙂

    So I found the stats. They aren’t as high as I thought. Probably because not every city in WA is like Seattle. But only Oregon and Utah had higher rates then Washington. You all should check out this website……. http://www.cdc.gov/breastfeeding/data/report_card2.htm

    styx – The side is ok. The reason you don’t want them sleeping on their tummies until they can physically do it themselves is because being that close to the mattress can pool CO2 and lead to SIDS. The side is ok because there is a better circulation of air. You can even buy sleep wedges that helps keep the baby on the side.

    I have a question. For two days I was sick with food poisoning, so wasn’t able to eat anything and barely ingested any fluids. I noticed a slight dip in supply yesterday, but other than that Levi seemed fine. Today her poop is a dark green, instead of tbe mustardy color. Is this something to worry about?

    2ndtimemommy, I know what you mean. My one year old son has been very antimommy right now, except when he wants to nrse, which is qite a bit lately. I think he knew abot baby #6 before I did! lol. I am a little scared of my milk spply dropping too, but nothing I can do about that now. I wasn’t really trying to get pregnant either, I was on my period and breastfeeding when it happened!! talk abouut surprise. My hpt came up positive a week and a half before my next period was due!!

    balsamfir – breastmilk is great. Works for pink eye, baby acne, cradle cap and many other minor wounds…including cracked breasts! I would try it. Don’t feel like you are stealing from him. You make plenty! I used it on myself for pink eye when my first got it from daycare. Gotta love that place! Glad we no longer need it. Alex is 5 1/2 month and has never been sick!

    lilmamamads – My hospital is pro-breastfeeding. They only give formula if needed or requested by the parents. All babies room in as well unless asked to be taken to the nursery which I don’t know if they even have besides the NICU. Alex is my second to breastfeed and they knew that he was not going to have formula. I doubt they were the ones that sold the information. It was probably one of the maternity stores or baby stores? Not sure but it’s trash.

    Ben- My son is pretty much the same way! He will fall asleep in the swing and once i move him to the playpen he will wake and the only thing to get him back to sleep is the boob or lay him in our bed, which i’m so tired of. I need my space and he takes up most of it. He laso is still up 2-3 hrs for a feeding then around 5-6 it’s every hr until 8 when he gets gas. He doesn’t cry much from it he just wants to suck until it passes then he’ll sleep til 9:30 10. I was just telling him how mommy would really like 1 night of sleep. I was hoping to get him in his room by 3 months but he’s never once slept in the crib. His longest sleep time is about 3-4 hrs which is always during the day drives me nuts. So with all the said, if you find something that works let me know and I’ll so the same!

    Ladies I don’t comment often but I read posts everyday every time I pump. lol. I just wanted to inform ladies that occasionally like to indulge in a social drink that walgreens and babies r us now carry breast milk alcohol strips to detect when your breastmilk is safe for the baby. I luv bf but I hate feeling like I can’t enjoy a glass or two of wine. Everytime I get really nervous and dump a lot of milk which hurts my stash. A lot of mothers I know don’t bf because they feel trapped into not being able to enjoy themselves. Bf is a commitment but not a prison sentence. The bf strips helped me enjoy my anniversary and still be a great bf mom!

    Emilee do you not leak on the bed? I always leaked at night with my oldest and this time also. I’m hoping he gets the hang of my let down soon. Its so mad you expect your next child to be like your first, my first was fine with let down only wanted to feed every 3 hours. Ollie is so different he wants fed whenever. I feed him in public but its hard being discreet as he is so noisy you can hear him across the room when he is feeding. Someone even said to me the other day he is a noisy feeder!

    My sister gave birth at 12:16 pm today after 4.5 hours of labor (second baby, they induced her). Ava Leeanne weighed in at 6lbs 12 oz and was out after one (ONE!!!) push with no stitches required. My sister was a little mortified that no stitches were required, she doesn’t think that makes her girly parts sound very appealing, lol. But I’m jealous! I had soooo many stitches, even though I only had to push about four times. But we were in shock. We were expecting a big baby and this little thing came sliding out. She’s a cutie! She latched on with about 10 minutes of effort from her, my mom, and me. Lol. The lactation consultant came in a few minutes after the birth and basically said hi and left. Stupid lady. They did the same with me. I ended up trying to coach her with things that worked for me and Zoey (though Zoey was straight on, no problem) even though my sister is much larger chested. Any positions that were good for you laides in the early days that are a D or so? My barely B’s couldn’t really offer much advice on that. Anyway! Yay!
