    jessicalynn- I’e been reading that you are worried baby john doesn’t poop enough…Clementine is the same she poops every few days now but has gone as long as 13 days…we both cloth diaper so i love the only poop a few days thing..especially since my diaper sprayer is on back order. I know you got the flips and fuzzi buns which do you prefer? I love the flips. I got a 6 covers and 12 inserts and 6 Chinese prefolds for when i know she’s gonna have her poop. it’s awesome to know that I have purchased all the diapers she will ever need for under 200$. thats the cost of 4 months worth of disposables.

    enumclawmama – It probably depends on a kind but my OB gave me some while pregnant and nursing Chris.

    Sorry bit of an off topic but I was wondering if anyone can help… My ds of 2.5 has just taken to trying to bite hit, hurt me. Why would this be? Yesterday he latched on for a few seconds voluntarily whilst we were in the bath – we haven’t bf since he was 6 months old. He’s also being very clingy. And earlier today he was pretending to bf his teddy bear. Could this all be a sign of jealousy towards his 4 month old sister who I ebf?

    Shell-On-Earth – Have you tried lying down and putting your LO on top of you to nurse? Your letdown won’t bother her so much this way.

    heatheres – Technically you can but if you don’t have to I wouldn’t with a low supply. You don’t want to do anything to make it worse.

    Thank you ladies! Yeah, he does pass gas quite often and sometimes he does seem uncomfortable. But DH and I just laugh it off when he’s just doing it comfortably while we’re holding him. He’s our little pooter 🙂 I will try to stop worrying so much! I’m so happy I have this forum, I love reading everyone’s comments. They’re very helpful!

    Oh, I also make my own trail mix…get bulk nuts, get bulk dried fruit and dice it up and mix in a big container…at the beginning of the week, I fill up 5 or 6 snack baggies for the week. Its amazing how a few minor changes can make such a big difference! Like I said, I do work full time, so making things as simple as possible are the only way I got through a year plus of breastfeeding. Since I’m already cooking/baking, it takes very little time to double the recipe and store the leftovers. Since I’m already shredding salad for one dinner one night, it makes sense to spend the extra 5 min to prepare for the whole week. If I’m slicing an onion for a recipe, I cut up the entire thing and put the rest in a baggie or container so it is ready for the next meal. My husband is good about cleaning up the kitchen after dinner and puts the leftovers in containers for our lunches the next day, so it only takes a few seconds in the morning to grab the containers, an apple, an orange, a handful of carrot sticks and BAM; you’re done packing two lunches in under 2 mintues!

    My doctor prescribed the mini pill for me to use as a means of contraception as it is safe while breatfeeding. I’m 10 weeks postpartum and my menstrual cycles haven’t returned. I would like to start taking the pill so we don’t have to hassle around with condoms, but I fear this will start my cycles back up again. Anyone experience this or have any advice? I enjoyed my 9 months of no periods and hope to enjoy more time without them!

    Hey ladies, here is a picture of Kekoa at a wee old. He was so funny. We had to strip him to nothing to get him to feed and then he’d fall into a milk coma which is what this photo is.

    My LO is six months this week, and luckily has never had to have formula. Last month, I noticed a signifigant downturn in my pumping at work. I was able to keep up, but having to pump 7-8 times a day to get enough. My doctor prescribed me Reglan, but before I started taking it, I tried a few things-relaxation techniques, increasing my food and water intake, and a weekend of nothing but nursing every hour or two, whenever he would. Now, for two weeks my supply/pumping is great, but I’m back to leaking like I was the first couple of months! Guess its worth it, but geesh 🙂

    kla2200 – It’s not a stupid question. If you have never had to use formula before then you wouldn’t know and it’s best to ask before making a mistake. Since you have never used formula before it really doesn’t matter but you will need to watch to see if your baby has issues with cow’s milk. If so then you might need to change to soy formula. Also, check expiration dates. I’m sure what you have is fine but better to be safe then sorry. Another question is have you tried to boost your supply. There are so many options out there that work quickly. If you are determined not to suppliment then you ‘can’ find a way to boost supply.
