    so i was just at the pediatrician yesterday and my baby had her first hepatitis b vaccine. I told the doc that I thought she had reflux because of all her symptoms and she just said ‘oh she may have a little reflux, but I don’t like to resort to medication if she doesnt need it’ so she told me after a feeding to let her sit up for 30 mins to an hour to help keep her food down. So we did everything she told us and her breast milk feeding at 1 am she vomited like projectile…then her feeding at 4 am which was formula she kept down fine…then her last feeding at 12:30 which was formula again she vomited. I just called the doc and she is supposed to call back soon. Has anyone ever had this problem???

    Has anyone on here donated breast milk?? I am considering it because I have about 200 ounces in the freezer already and am pumping an extra 12 ounces or so a day. I don’t want to stop the extra pumping because I don’t want my supply to go low and I go back to work next month. But at the rate i’m going, there isn’t going to be any room for food in our freezer and I don’t have money to get a deep freezer.

    Anica- It takes 3 weeks to get milk protein out of your system and bm so I would give it alittle longer.

    jcjm the first 3-4 weeks are the hardest. You are doing great. The more baby feeds the more milk you will make. For sore nipples try lansanoh (sp) cream. If you have any cracks use alittle antibiotic ointment but wipe off before nursing. It does get better I promise.

    lovebelly- If you have some a heating pad or 2 use it for like 15 min. then pump 15 min. then heat 15 min and so on. I would do it for like 1 hr. and see if that helps. If you aren’t strictly pumping nursing really does drain the breast so much better and faster. If you are nursing as well you could use the heat pad, nurse, heat pad, pump. Do you have problems with over supply?

    violet23- I am always thirst (hence i drink 132oz of water a day plus a few sodas). My doc told me as a nursing mother i need to drink at least 68 oz of water a day.

    Pink – I’ve heard both things about waking a baby to feed especially breastfed. If they are gaining weight healthily then there isnt really a problem with it. My son was less than 10 weeks when he started but there was no way in hell I was waking him! I just woke myself up to pump. If he was hungry he’d wake up. For awhile if he did wake up he wouldnt go back to sleep until he ate, then we reached a point that if he did wake up he wouldnt even take it if it was offered to him. Probably baby-specific.

    jess0402- Talk to the pharmacist when you get your prescription filled! Seriously, they will have the best answer or they can find out for sure if they don’t know off hand. That’s their job, and they know more about it than the doctors. Good luck!

    I guess I am giving up! I really don’t want LO getting this antibiotic I am on ( which I need a stong one as the other one I was on did not clear up my infection). I have only pumped two ounces today & LO didn’t want to eat this morning. I am so torn over this and nervous about the transition. I hope the Zoloft helps me (don’t really want LO getting that either). I supposed I will be starting my period back soon with stopping nursing. I will have to get on a normal birth control. So many changes and I don;t know how to deal with it right now. I feel like a ball of nerves & very anxious. Pray for me ladies. I know everything will work out but its just so hard right now. I am paranoid that I will run out of formula too. How weird is that? I don;t want to buy too much right now in case LO can’t handle the kind I choose at first. I am home from work today and tomorrow as the doc said if i don’t slow down I will never get over this illness. Even though I plan to stop nursing I hope y’all don;t mind if I stop in on this page and check up on everyone!

    Another thing about the BF class… they really tell you how it is. They dont try to glorify it (or at least the LC who taught mine didnt). She explained that it was going to be extremely hard and challenging and there were going to be bumps in the road – how right she was! I dont know if you get that reality check from googling (aside from this forum of course!). The good thing about this forum is, although there are a lot of challenges and issues that are brought up, everyone is sooo glad they are doing it and doing everything in their power to keep doing it because its what’s best for their babies. And the ones who have to stop for whatever reason (before weaning) are genuinely upset, but still proud. Power to you ladies!!! This forum is such a great resource for encouragement!

    I got up @ 2am to pump cuz baby was sleeping and I only pumped 2 oz. (one oz per side) Only had one letdown during a 20 min pumping session. WTH!!!! Usually I can pump 4-5 oz total….. I hope that I am not starting to have a dip in supply, I don’t think I am because Brandon bf’s fine all day long but I am trying to start building a freezer supply. I can even feed him until he is totally satisfied right after I have pumped 4 oz of milk. I have been eating the oats for about a week now and I have not seen a increase in amount pumped yet. I will just continue with what I am doing. They say that you will pump more when you are away from your baby.
