    Laurae2001†How far along are you? Most times, you can BF into the second trimester and almost into the 3rd unless you have a history of pre-term labor. As you get further along in your pregnancy your milk will change flavor and they usually self wean then. If not, plenty of women tandum nurse with no supply issues to their newborns, in fact it will likely make sure you have extra supply with two kids demanding nursings. Just a thought, but of course up to you.

    I had my 6 week check up last week and my OB asked if I had gotten my period, which I didn’t. I am exclusively nursing and in the past I have exclusively BF my other 3 children for up to 2 years. I never got a period during this time and I had explained this to her. She wanted me to start on birth control pills right away to bring on my periods regularly every month. She had said ‘just because it’s cheaper not to have a period doesn’t mean it’s healthy’. Then she proceeds to tell me that I have PCOS?? I looked that up and don’t have any of those symptoms. So I guess my question is basically, is it absolutely necessary to have your period while breastfeeding?? AND if your on birth control pills does it affect your ilk supply or cause fussiness in the baby?

    My baby spits up A LOT after I drink orange juice. It’s kinda crazy….the foods/drinks you think you should consume while breasfeeding are not recommended. Who’d-a thunk it? Anyways, I’ve been getting an upset belly lately after dairy products…and I never used to. I wonder if since it gives me an upset stomach, it will give my baby an upset stomach as well? Hmmm…I just eat what I’m hungry for and hope it doesn’t upset little Cailin’s belly. She does spit up a lot though…so who knows…it’s all a little confusing. As far as the alcohol goes, I read in an article to not nurse your baby for 3 hours after drinking it. But I think it all depends on how much you drink. It’s probably right if you only have one drink.

    songnos, sounds like you might have thrush. I’d see your doc. Your lc would probably be able to confirm it for you too. Good luck and hang in there!

    EvaV, how is the bleeding from that?

    #6910783

    Thanks for your help everyone! I’m going to keep working on it–nursing has been the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life and I’m not about to lose out over my stinkin’ period!

    I to am in fear of nursing in public. My daughter is 6 weeks and I have went to the bathroom on several occasions to feed her and feel bad about it. I know it is natural, but I feel funny doing it in public and I hate feeling this way. I need to get some kind of cover to make me more comfortable. Anyone have any suggestions about how to make myself feel more comfortable.

    9yrslater-I have not had an issue with a low milk supply so when I first started pumping I would pump first THEN feed the baby OR I would bf from one side then pump from the other side.

    Heather I would just make sure you drink plenty of fluids and nurse or pump often. You supply might dip but it will return easier if you keep those things going. Also limit your antihistamines.

    hi ladies! i haven’t been here in a while. but i need some help & suggestions. my little breastfed girl (almost 10 months) is not a good sleeper. she wakes up 2-3 times a night & that would be considered a good night. she goes down on her own in her crib around 7:30 wakes around 11:30-12:30 i nurse her and then she’s up again at 3:30, then sometimes, 4:30, 5:30, etc. not every night, but many nights… i work (which i wish i didn’t have to) so i’m a walking zombie at this point. i’m okay with the 12:30 feeding, but would like to drop the 3:30 feeding. i’m so tired that i just nurse her b/c that’s the quickest way for me to get some sleep!! but i’m taking some mornings off from work to try a new approach & get some much needed sleep. any suggestions out there? we will never let her cry it out, but we’re open to other ideas…if anyone has any!! thanks a billion.

    armymom, i dont know about the motilitumn or however its spelled but i know the domperidone i take the only side effects are possible stomache aches/cramps since its actually a medicine to do with your upper intestine lol. ive been on it for a week now and i had some cramps for about 15 mins the third day i was taking it. its working wonders for my supply too.

    I too pump twice a day at work to keep my supply since i am not with baby. Somedays are great and some are terrible. Have you tried the Rx Reglan? It seems to work okay for me. I do the fenugreek & Blessed thistle too. It is a pain to worry about supply just to feed your baby and i have the added stress of a full time job that i HATE. But it does pay the bills. Try to stick with it but if you can not at least you got a good 5 months in right!
