    I need some help. I have a very sore left breast. Under side has a lump. Is that a block duct? If so how do I get rid of it.

    I start with my lo in that same position too and when i get ready to latch him I bend my arm at the elbow so it is going beside of him and them curl him up to his side next to me. I leave my arm there for support like a pillow would. I block feed so i don’t ever have to do a switch but fun thing is i prefer him on the edge of the bed so i can pick him up and put him back in his cosleeper without ever having to sit up.

    It’s kinda sad how proud of Zoey I was that she woke up and went back to sleep by herself earlier without demanding to latch on. Granted, it only lasted about ten minutes before she woke up AGAIN and wanted my breast, but it is progress!

    I started a sore throat yesterday and it’s gotten worse today along with nasal and head pressure. Does anyone know if I can I take Sudafed PE cold and sinus? It says on the back of the box if you are pregnant or nursing to contact your doctor… which it says that on almost anything. Also do you think I could get my baby sick, he’s 5wks and we don’t let ANYONE around him if they even have the sniffles. Now here I am feeling sick and around him ALL THE TIME…

    My son has had thrush for weeks now! We’ve been through course after course of nystatin, and instead of getting better, it’s only getting worse. I’m at the end of my rope, and don’t know what to do. The good thing is that BF doesn’t hurt that bad, just a bit when he first latches on, and a few stabbing pains in the breast, but nothing too bad. But we need to get this under control! I can’t get him back to the doctor till Monday (I just noticed 3 new spots in his mouth today) and I’m out of the nystatin again. I’m thinking about trying gentian violet, I heard it works wonders, but then someone else told me her pedi said it can be toxic if swallowed, and could actually cause death! I googled it, and found absolutely nothing to support that statement, just that if used in too large quantities, or too often for too long, can cause mouth sores and longterm exposure can lead to oral cancer. Does anyone have any suggestions? Or have been told by their doc that gentian violet is okay?

    MRSMOM – You should probably consider pumping. Your milk supply is always high in the morning. It’s good to pump after your morning feeding. Also you should have some in the freezer for back up. Just incase something were to happen where you needed to be away from your baby for what ever reason. Your milk supply is lower in the evening and that is normal. She’s 6wks, so you could give her a bottle of expressed milk once in a while if you’d like. You don’t want to wait much longer though, because she may just reject it.

    Don’ t you just hate those questions. Had a guy tell me at Wendy’s, ‘well you’re ready to pop.’ Seriously? I was 41 weeks with an 11lb baby but seriously not something you tell someone. Just like when a baby is tiny or huge. I just smiled smuggly and turned away. People that say things like that just don’t deserve a response.

    jessica- you could have a clogged duct or possibly mastitis, do u feel ill like achy or feverish? i have had a few clogged ducts and had mastitis a couple of times and thats how my breast feels…likes its bruised and sore to the touch, it can also effect your supply. can u feel a pea like lump anywhere on that breast? if so try massaging it out, running under hot shower, hot compress, offer that side first at feedings and try to pump it also.

    act004, could your baby not be hungry, but simply missing her mommy? I have heard quite a few ppl say that when they get home from work all their LO wants to do is nurse. I think she may just be wanting the snuggles…

    So I was wondering if anyone else has experienced Mastitis??? I went to the doc yesterday and got antibiotics and have been pumping and feeding as frequent as possible (1-2hrs) but my problem is there is a lump like the size of a golf ball at the bottom of my breast that won’t seem to drain. I even took a warm shower and pumped right afterwards and It still did nothing. I go back on Monday for a follow up but does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do that might help either get that area to empty or relieve the pain. any suggestions will help. Thanks ladies. 🙂 Hope no one else has to deal with this.

    question, my lil guy is 9 months old and it seems like he will nurse for like a few min then gets distracted, wants to play ect… i try to offer but he is alwyas soo busy. he just started crawling and getting more rowdy, but my boobs always feel full and annoying. is this normal at this age? do they stop eating as much because they are eating solids? but he really doesnt eat that much solids either, after a few bits he refuses a lot of the time. he is a big boy so im not worried about that.

    babybellybliss – Once you’ve had one you always be prone to them. i would do cabbage cause that dries you up. You don’t want to do that!

    One more question while we are on the poo topic, my breastfed daughter (love saying that considering i spent weeks with constant cluster feedings 🙂 ) my dd is 6 weeks and use to have a nice mustard seedy poopy every feeding from alittle after birth till now but since two days ago had not pooped. Shes throwing gas now so im sure its coming soon but is this a norm for breastfed babies? Do your babies poo everyday? She doesnt look in pain and her tummy is not hard so thats why im puzzled.
