    butterflykisses, I agree with Bri, it sounds like he may be frustrated with the letdown not coming right away. I used to get immediate let-down as soon as my son started nursing, but now it takes about a minute or so to start, and my son does exactly what you are describing until he milk starts flowing. And if I pull him off, yes I can squeeze some milk out, but it’s not coming fast enough for him until the let-down starts, typically about a minute to a minute and a half after he first latches. I still do have a very strong let-down though, I’ve always had issues with it being very strong.

    illy2– my DD stopped pooping at 2 months. She only poo’s every 3-8 days. It is normal for breastfed babies poop frequency to change from time to time. as long as when she does poo its not hard pellets. I wouldnt worry. Also on the day right before she poos she gets uncomfortable and her farts are smelly… Then its a monstrosity of a poo! Usually the poor onsie is put into the garbage.

    mamba-also you could try propping baby on her back sort of sitting up and then get on your hands and knees and lean your boobie into her mouth so it is pointing down. While she is nursing start at the base and try to massage the lump downward. You have to get the clog out before you’ll feel better.

    emilee..do not feel bad..im actually shocked your doctor allowed you to take such a pill knowing you EBF. there are ways to get your supply back up..mothers milk tea..aand there is a suppliment the girls always mention but i forgot what its called..dont be down on yourself..you will get your supply back..and you were NOT starving your baby.talk to STYX..she had the same issue with BC..and she also knows ways to boost your supply..good luck!

    god-iva – In many cultures it’s for however long until the baby is ready for solids. I wasn’t on any solids until I was over a year. My ped was ok with that because I was in the 95% and still growing nicely on my mom’s milk. I wasn’t interested in food either so we just kept going the way we were. Many doctors will tell you around 7-8months they do need to start eating because iron starts to deplete around six months. But that is only a start. Breastmilk is the best food for the first year of life.

    Lilmamamads~ (*tears) You’ve made a beautiful point! I wrote a lot more, but deleted it. Any rate, I agree, breastfed babies are VERY lucky babies!

    Add me to the unhelpful spouse team! WHEN we get to see her dad, he doesn’t seem to want to help at all. He volunteered to change her diaper while I went to pee last night…I came back downstairs to find him still holding the fresh diaper, watching tv. Like he was holding out until I got back to do it. So I grabbed it and changed her myself. It used to anger me. Now I just roll my eyes. It just hurts my feelings that he’s so great with his 4 year old twins! Rocky times, rocky times! Good luck 2ndtimemommy. There’s no way I could leave Zoey all night, even though he’s been hinting around at it for a while now.

    EMILEE- I know you said you’ve stopped the nursing session, but he’s hungry and has to eat… well that’s the perfect time to teach him that he can’t bite Mommy. Once I put DJ down and said ‘ouch, no biting’ and walked away every time he’d bite, ALL DAY. He was so hungry, by the end of the day he was not biting me and has not since that day, lol! I don’t think it’s mean, he just has to understand. Is your son tongue tide? You shouldn’t feel his teeth at all, I don’t know how you can suck and bite at the same time…

    I used football hold and also laying down on my bed
    I still prefer to feed her laying down in bed so much easier… As far as TV goes I know it is not good for but I must admit in the morning she does watch a little and a night she does too she loves it Iknow I should try harder but sometimes mummy needs to hear another adults voice as being stuck at home all day every day can become a little boring….. Thios morning I put her in her rocking chair and oput her by the glass windows to watch natures TV.. she loved watching the birlds fly past

    I’ve had thrush but neither of my sisters ‘lucked out’ with it. HAhA! Horrible thing! Hope never to get it again.

    Double, come to think of it he did. I don’t really notice since he’s in bed with me but I don’t remember how many times he got up. I don’t think it was more the once or twice. I know this seems like a lot but he’s also teething someting fierce. I did just buy am amber teething necklace. I don’t trust things around his neck for obvious reasons but it fits around his ankle twice. He’s been happy since wearing it so hopefully he’ll sleep even better tonight.

    I have and odd question. I have been feeding my baby like 2 ounces of breast milk then maybe an ounce of formula at night. I think I heard once that someone mixed these together? can you do that? I have been using two seperate bottles.
