    Noah colts – I’m not a pumper either. Until about a year I noticed a slight dip during AF but all it meant was a little more nursing during the day. I wouldn’t worry too much until you actually experience it, then go from there. For us though, it really hasn’t been that big of a deal.

    James’s day pretty much runs the same plan everyday. Ollie doesn’t seem to want a routine, which is fine as long as he is asleep for bed by 8.30. I would however like them to nap at the sametime.

    MyBaby, it should come back. Just keep pumping and taking the herbs. When you are at home pump after each feed to help boost the supply. Good Luck! I just got over my first one. ugh! But…it was only two days of heavy bleeding. I’ve been eating oatmeal for several days now and I feel ok. I’m sure by the end of the week it’ll be better. Last night Alex actually slept better so I think that says something. It takes time to build back up. Find what combination works for you and start taking it about a week before your period is due. It’ll help with the dip.

    I STILL get cans in the mail that go straight to the trash can. HAHA! I was on the other opinion, everyone around me breastfeeds. How could it be that hard??? So when I gave birth to Chris I hadn’t a clue what I was doing wrong. HAHA! We struggled through and obviously he weaned himself. Alex was much easier and I was able to spot the tongue tie issue early on. I knew something was wrong. Every child it gets easier, different challenges but easier all around.

    I pumped for the first time this morning and got a total of 6oz after Noah ate….BUT I sucked it all out of me and he wanted to eat soon after and there wasn’t anything. Bad idea, maybe I’ll start put pumping on the boob he just ate off of? Do you all think that would help or should I just not pump for as long?

    hi ladies, my second little girl is two weeks old today.. I am breastfeeding her. Today at her appointment she had exceeded her birthweight and they told me it was ok to let her sleep longer at night instead of waking her to eat. Is it ok to let her sleep through the night if thats the case?

    I am going back to work soon, and I’m just struggling to get my head around how it’s going to be feasible. I need to work FT to afford to support myself and my LO. I’m allowed breaks to breastfeed/express but they are unpaid. If I’m working 8 hours a day, 30 min lunchbreak, and I need to express at least every 3 hours I’m away from home, and it takes me 1 hour to walk to/from work, and the opening hours at work are only 7.45 – 5.15 weekdays. It usually takes me 15-20 minutes to empty each breast, and there isn’t a sterilizer on site so at some point I guess I will have to boil some water to keep the pump clean. Are there enough hours in the week to actually go back? My brain is going into meltdown! Help!

    benadryl is a L2 which is the same as B when you are pregnant but I would only take it for a break every once in a while because it is an antihistamine which dries things up. Robitussin dm is L2 as well if you have a cough and I can’t think of any negatives in taking that one. I have been battling a cold too and all I have been doing so far is a sinus rinse. Sudafed is approved by the American Academy of Pediatrics for use in breastfeeding but my book mentions the possibility of a decrease in breastmilk and the benadryl does not but I would still watch out for it. Either way if you want to take any of them just keep your fluids up.

    If someone is nursing and decides to continue after having a new baby the colostrum will come back. No need to stop just to get it!

    So is it okay to soak my breast pump ‘milk funnel’ in bleach and water? I think I noticed mold in some part of it that I can’t clean by hand. GRrrrr-I hate mold!!

    ixisherriieixi- Yes. Sometimes a little bit of milk leaks out through the piercing hole, but that shouldn’t interfere with your nursing. Most people suggests taking the piercing out while nursing as it can become a choking hazard and also make you more sore while baby is learning to latch.
