    DulcianasMom – I ate ferment oatmeal twice a day for months. It’s awesome, well it was for me and my sister. Half cup water, half cup oats. Leave it on the counter for at least 7 hours then heat and serve. Add whatever flavoring you want to help get it down if you don’t like the taste. I would eat it morning and night. I starting pumping twice as much within a week. I saw a noticable difference within days. My sister went from 15oz to 26oz. I went for 8oz to 17oz. She pumped three times a day and I pumped twice a day and feed at lunch.

    nadisha- Good for you!! Can’t give a recommendation on bottles, I’ve always used gerber. Stick to your guns and do what you feel is best for your child.

    My LO is 3 1/2 weeks and she drinks 4oz ( I do exclusivly pumping) how do you know if you have a low supply on milk? Right now I only make what she drinks, and I can’t seem to stock up. I have to return to work in October, and what I have been forced to do is supplement night time feedings with formula in order to stock up on BF milk, any tips ladies???

    pgfirsttimer – We had the opposite problem. I mainly fed sitting up with a boppy especially as he got bigger and longer because he likes the feeling of being snuggled. As he got way long he always just curled up and had one leg up in the air against me. So sweet. Lying down especially on Saturday mornings we tried even with pillows smooshed up behind him but he never got that cuddled feeling and would get very upset. I guess they all have their preferences!

    Ellasmommy- I can only do it if she is on the L breast. I hold her in cradle position with my L hand supporting her bottom. Im beginning to think I will only be able to do it for a couple more weeks because she is so long 🙂

    Krystaldawn-mine started basically that way. Theres no telling its acutally coming until it makes it appearance. But a few days before mine arrives i have those same symptoms so it might be. But just be on the lookout just to be safe!

    miami – I made the momsicles. I just used ice cube trays and gave him the cube to suck on. Such a mess!! He liked it a lot though it was new for him. I only did it a couple of times because it ended up being a big waste of a couple of ounces but I imagine it would be good for teething. I tried dropping the cube into one of those mesh feeders but he preferred to just hold it. DH was totally grossed out by it haha, but what does that matter?

    Hi Ladies I need some advice please…my LO is 2 weeks old and since birth I have been BF’ing on demand but each and everytime I do so..I sweat bucketloads, have a runny nose and get soooo hot that I have to drink loads and have the fan running at the same time..this only happens when I’m feeding…is there something physiological happening or is it the mind playing tricks on me?…it’s really frustrating and to be honest it’sstarting to get me down, I will still feed my son but I can’t deny the emotional impact this is having on me…is there anything I can do to combat this?…it’s reached the point where before each and very feed I will blow my nose, have a sip of water, turn the fan on and wipe my forehead down before I pick him up to feed…any other tips?

    babybean3 – My first son was sensitive to milk. I went strickly no dairy. It was awful for me, no cheese, ice cream, nothing! But it didn’t effect supply. Helped me lose weight though! HAHA! I’m sorry you have to go through it but hope it helps. Also, just because your baby is sensitive now doesn’t mean he won’t grow out of it. My son now drinks cow’s milk all the time and loves cheeses. So, no worry in that department.

    what is the ‘pulsing ‘ pain? I just started that today and it is a pain that comes and goes and is in one specific spot low on my breast.

    **Crazyfornumber3- I’ve had hypothyroidism for years and I have breastfed my son for 3 months now. Not sure if you were concerned with problems? But we have been doing fine. He was 7lbs12oz at birth and is now over 15lbs…I guess a little better than fine?!?! LOL Good Luck!!

    the dentist is concerned with cavities and the ped says it is no longer nutritionally necessary.

    Lawsons Mom – That’s awesome. I watched the video even though I don’t pump anymore and loved it. I had never been taught those techniques but always found that I could get a few more ounces by hand expressing after pumping. Angles also help to get the suction just a little more on certain ducts. HAHA!

    squirmy was just the beginning for me and my overactive babe. he does full on turns now and tries to stand up sometimes. he gets so mad when i try to correct him. i think it’s cute and it would be if it didn’t hurt from time to time. I always tell him ‘you’re hurting mommy’ and make sad faces.

    I have no advice…but I have my fingers crossed for you, Lawson’s Mom — I can’t imagine doing all of that work for no reason. I’ll cry for you if it turns out you can’t use it. Seriously.
