    how can you tell if you have overactive letdown? LO will nurse for a minute or sometimes a few minutes in and then she starts choking like when something goes down the wrong pipe. It scares the hell out of me and I have to burp her vigorously to clear it. Then she spits up everything she just ate. What can I do?

    Ok long message to follow: I wen to my 6 week post partum check up and discussed bc options. Obviously I would like to go for the mini-pill so its les likely I would have milk supply issues. The only problem is that I have dysmennorhea and ortho tri-cyclen has been the only bc I can take that keeps me out of emergency rooms every month was severe pain. So he went ahead and put me back on it and I’ll see what happens. But since I haven’t had a period yet at what point should begin taking it? This coming Sunday or right away? There doesn’t seem to be a start date indicated for nursing women that haven’t had their period return yet. Any thoughts would be great you can answer to my profile if you want. Thanks

    emmalouliz – I believe campimama is right about the link between solids and diabetes is starting TOO EARLY. That and how doctors think thier opinion is law, haha!Like you said, babies do not need solids until a year so if your is happy with just BFing then why change it?

    lmgibson – I could be wrong but I’d assume they were similar to a nursing necklace. Something YOU wear to give your baby something to play with while nursing. I used to think they were silly but now my man feels the need to grab and pinch my other nipple while nursing – which HURTS while pregnant! haha.

    seuban0- I felt exactly like you did! I kept thinking something was wrong with me because I felt so alone and was absolutely miserable. I got advice and encouragement from my mom and aunts. You may want to ask members of your family who have breastfed to spend a few hours with you if possible. If they can’t there are support groups, try this site to find one in your area: http://www.llli.org/WebUS.html

    And of course WE are always here for you!!! You can do it! ((((hugs))))

    Ashlercarter – your hair loss is likely a completely normal part of having given birth. The hormones while you’re pregnant cause you to lose hardly any hair and then once you have your baby, after a couple months, you start to lose all that hair you didn’t lose while you were pregnant. Very normal. It sucks but I don’t think even vitamins will help. Just time.

    act004 – I also co-sleep. We have a room for Alex but I haven’t even bought a second crib. My first son moved to his room around six months or so because he was such an active sleeper. He would end up in my bed though. With Alex I didn’t see any reason to create a nursery before he got home. It still remains a guest room. We have a king size bed and he usually sleeps in the center but he always has a hand on me. When he really can’t sleep I curl him up on my arm as well and rock him a bit. I have a bad kink in my neck from doing this and carrying him weight all day though. He’s almost 11weeks now. My Ped knows I co-sleep and she did the same with her boys. Also, there is new research that shows that children that died from SIDS had a low seratonum level which would cause them not to react if there was a pool of carbon dioxide. Most babies would move their heads. Even those without great neck support would fling their heads. Babies with low levels don’t and rebreathing the carbon dioxide is what kills them. Also, studies show those that breastfeed and co-sleep have lower risks of SIDS. I actually haven’t been worried about SIDS this time around. It’s odd that I just don’t have the same fears that I did last time. I worry more while at the store. He’s in the bjorn because my 2-yr old is in the cart. He snuggles into my breasts so much that I worry he can’t breath but he does. Then there was the reports of babies dying in slings which confirmed my thoughts. But in my bed I’m not worried.

    Baby, I would go through at least two burp rags catching the over drip and was pumping at least 40oz as well as nursing full time! The 40oz was just enough to keep me from tears because I was so engorged, I was never emptying out! Milk donation here I come!!!
