    Chelle: the same thing happened to me. On my left side I had to feed her in the football hold or else there was excruciating pain. Once we got really good at bf’ing we were able to nurse in any position.

    klara-‘so what I’m reading is that your LO has only been on formula for 48 hours or is that wrong? If it’s only been 48 hours I would think you would be fine, just get your LO back on the breast ASAP. Just her sucking and skin contact should bump you back up. You can always have fermented oats and mothers milk tea. I dont have much experience but I’ve heard that mentioned quite a bit. Hopeful others have some advice too.

    have several questions to ask due to tech difficulties on fb group access feel free to add me using my email [email protected] 1. Why does sex hurt so much? When we use deep penetration it does hurt so bad. 2. My bby is 11 wks. What is the average amt of breast milk produced every 2 hrs (pumped) According to kellymom.com its of the norm to make 1/2 oz-2 oz. I thought it was 4 or more…but apparently that is more of the norm for oversuppliers or moms with bbys 6 mths and older

    hi everyone just thought i would let you all know my experience. I have a 9 day old and exclusively breastfeed by bottle. I started on the breast which was slow going to get him latched on but once he did he was fine. Then my hubby really wanted to feed him so i started expressing a couple per day so he could feed him (especially in the night!)… then my boy got fussy and prefered the bottle teat as it was easier for himto suckle on and got more food quicker! so now he just has expressed milk which suits us fine! its time consuming and makes each feed a long process for me but totally worth it – especially watching him have his daddy time and knowing he is still getting breast milk. I seem to be a dairy cow too…i can express 8oz on a morning for two feeds and up to 5 oz every other express through the day! so im sitting here with 5 made bottles in the fridge, some in the freezer and i will still express every 3 hours when he feeds…the weight is dropping off! so i believe if it is right for you – exclusively pumping is not as bad as some people make me feel! xxx

    mountainmama – my doctor actually recommended, off the record, to drink a beer if I was having supply issues. I’ve also heard conflicting advice, however in my experience, if I’ve had a beer after my daughter goes to bed I wake up WAY more engorged than normal.

    I used just the plain Quaker Oats. Not the instant. I am not sure the reason why, maybe it is all in my head, but i found that i got a bigger boost in supply when i soaked them vs just cooking and eating. I used 1 part water to 1 part oats. Usually a cup of each.

    My little guy flails around sometimes when nursing but it usually just means he’s ready to burp or trying to poo. Most of the time he’s a monster at the breast. He growls and shakes his head back and forth vigorously and then grabs me like a bottle. He grabs, pinches, scratches, and smacks the boobies, lol! It’s so cute! Especially since he’s not even 2 months yet.

    OK im back with yet another problem. I tried to wean down from my motiluim tablets and my supply has dropped. So while im trying to get it back up Emerson wont latch. She tries and then because she knows its going to take a while for the letdown she just screams and comes off. She is only patient through the night when she is half asleep. Its hard and ive had to suppliment a few times and now her poop STINKS bad and her bottom is sore. Anyone got any tips on getting a faster letdown? Normally its between 30 – 40 seconds but she wont stay on that long to get it down. I guess i could pump but thats a pain when im out.
    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Larissa – My son nursed every 2 or 3 hours until he was 7 months old. He did start sleeping longer at night at around 4 months but didn’t sleep straight thru until 7 months.

    My nephew is 17 months and was EBF and only weighs 19 lbs…my niece from another sister was like this as well. My DH’s niece is 11 months and weighs 17 lbs..and my girlfriend’s baby is 9 months and weighs 22 lbs!!! Its more about weight gain from visit to visit but unless they are sick or showing signs of being uncomfy they will grow and gain in their own time.

    mylesmommy – It is a posibility and you will want to use protection every time BUT it is rare to get pregnant so early on in breastfeeding. Most women don’t get their cycle back until several months after their milk has adjusted or even until they wean. But, if your cycle comes back without you knowing, you could get pregnant before your first period. I know, it’s complicated. In the end, it is highly unlikely that you are pregnant. I didn’t get my first period until Kekoa was 9 months old.
