    deeyore486 – you make a great point. It’s not whether someone is shy or not. It’s just shouldn’t be frowned upon. If someone is shy and wants to cover up then I’d rather see that then someone quit breastfeeding all together. We can’t live our lives behind closed doors is the main objective. My son has never had a bottle. There is no point to it. Once he’s old enough we’ll start giving him a sippy with dinner. Wht mess with a good thing. I had to pump all the time with my last. I’m enjoying the fact that I don’t have to pump and he’s gaining weight. No stress this time around.

    Tannersmommy – you figure it out, let me know! Zoey’s dad tells me that all the time. I joke that she is spoiled sometimes, but really, I just feel like she’s nurtured. She knows she can depend on me to get what she needs, when she needs it. When she gets older and demands a toy or something, I’ll be the first to teach her we don’t always get what we want – when we want it. But right now? She wants love and snuggles and someone to play with her (when she is actually awake! lol). Good luck though. I battle that on a weekly basis.

    And hang in there, to the ladies with the newborns. Zoey was on my breast for 19 hours one day. No joke. I took two bathroom breaks during that and she screamed the whole time. It’s much, much, much better now. She’ll be 4 months on the eleventh. I’d say things were better by 6 weeks, but I cried and thought my life was over for those six weeks. Learn to nurse laying down and type with one hand. Visit us often! It’ll make the days fly. Lol. Hang in there!

    saphireblue – How much you pump doesn’t show how much you produce. Some women are good pumpers while others can’t seem to get 2oz. A friend of mine pumped for over a year while working. At each pump she only got 2oz. So she got up in the middle of the night and pumped just to keep up with her son and not have to give formula. She did it. It was hard work. I on the other hand seem to be able to get 5-10oz at each pump. Now I don’t have to which I am truly blessed for but it’s just me. Do you have to pump for work? If you don’t then I just wouldn’t worry about it. I only pump now if my son decides to go on a strike for a feeding. If he’s not hungry and I’m full I’ll get it out otherwise I just feed on demand.

    i’m very much a one for nursing where ever i am. I figure if baby is hungry baby needs fed. When i first started breast feeding my first son i’d rush to find somewhere to feed him normally with him screaming to be fed. I soon realised it was easier just to feed where i was.

    Also I have a non bf question. I’m a baby wearer and have been using a Moby. Well my guy is just too wiggly for that now unless he is on my back which is a wrap I can’t do by myself. Anyhow I was thinking of getting an Ergo. Any of you use one? Do you like it? Any other suggestions?

    My son will be 2 next month, I weaned him at 15 months. I am now 10 weeks pregnant with baby number 2! I hope I will be here in 7 months breastfeeding my new baby. This part of the site is awesome and so supportive. I’m glad I found it with my son.

    deeyore486 – If you’re not comfortable with it then don’t. My MIL is great and I trust her more then my own mother but I know that isn’t always the case. If you want to do the first zoo experience then don’t let your babies go. Too bad. Use your Mommy judgement and it’ll pay off.

    And yeah, our maternity leave is so dumb. I can’t stand it. I went back after 6 weeks. But like i said before for like 10 hours a week. But it was really hard to keep my supply up in the beginning because i can’t pump at work!

    phatbaby- give me some of your healthiness! it’s so hard because Ella (almost a year) eats all table foods, and she definitely prefers things like cheese and cheerios and crackers and snack type things. But it’s so hard for me to even think of good things to offer her. I’ve never eaten very healthy, and it’s something i’m working on. But it’s hard to think of good things to give to her.

    Hi ladies, my son is 17 weeks old. I bf him. He has started hitting himself (with his hand) in the head when i feed him and now he is doing it all night. last night i had to take him out of his crib bc he was hitting his head soo hard he was bleeding a little bit. i read somewhere that they do this when they are tired, has anyone else experienced this. It is very scary and I do not know what to do 🙁

    what exactly does thrush look like? we’ve made it 13 months w/o it and i have no idea what i’m looking for, but this morning I noticed a white coating on his tongue. He wouldn’t let me look in the rest of his mouth. If he has it it hasn’t spread to my nipple yet and from what you ladies are saying I’d like to catch it before it does.
