    AidensMommy1 : My little one did the same thing at the same age, She would feed every hour and a half to 2 hours instead of every 3. She did it for an entire month and i was freaking out thinking this was her new routine and then one day after a month she just went back to normal. I think it was a growth spurt combined with her increasing my milk supply.

    netters – Some women don’t get it back until they wean completely. You might be one of them. You can still start trying. =P HAHA! You might get lucky and get pregnant the month you would have had your period. Remember, you ovulate before you get your period. So, go ahead….start trying. Granted I wouldn’t want to get pregnant in March, that means the baby would be born in December and too close to Christmas. My birthday is November 21st and hate how it’s soo close to Christmas and Thanksgiving. Kekoa was born November 4th, next time I want a summer baby. If I get pregnant this fall then Kekoa will be 2 1/2 when the baby is born. I think that is a good difference.

    I ate cabbage once and Julianna and she became extremely fussy because it gave her gas. No more cabbage for me for a long time!

    aidensmommy1 you should be very proud of yourself. Breastfeeding takes a lot of dedication and time. Have you ever pumped any? Anytime we go home I try and let my grandmother give my 6 month old a bottle of expressed milk. If you felt like it you could always mention that you have made it this far so why put chemicals in his body when all he has had is the best, not to mention the risk of his body rejecting it at this point. Does he eat any solids yet. I usually try and let hubby or family member do that part when the timing lines up right. With any luck maybe he wouldn’t take a bottle anyways huh LOL That sucks she is acting like that but the truth is that doctors spend less then one day on the topic of breastfeeding. Sad I know. Hopefully she will lighten up after she realizes you are standing your ground. I am not sure how long you do plan on nursing but you can also play around with her and tell her you are going to let him wean himself weather that is at a year or 4 lol. I personally plan to try and make it until my son is 2 since that is the new recommendation from the american pediatric association but if he stops then I don’t know maybe let him or pump a cup or 2 a day. Who knows. LOL. All of this was to say you are doing a great job 🙂

    kym– every once in a while julianna wakes up from sleeping her usual 10-12 hours and she is dry. I wouldnt’ worry if it was just one time or even happens every so often. I read somewhere that when babies do that it is supposed to mean they will be easy to potty train at night. Not sure how true it is though.

    Ladies,

    Question: for the moms that have gone back to work and are pumping, any recommendations on a pump? I’m currently using a low grade pump by Evenflo and it has been fine up until now but recently it seems to be giving me suction problems which has now caused me a low milk supply. I’m ready to invest on a good pump and so I’m wondering what to look for. I’m thinking a Medela pump but don’t know which one. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated! Thanks! 🙂

    LOL, aprilmamma; I’m imagining doing a little booby shake to decide which breast to offer baby! Do you ever breastfeed in public? LOL. kebler98, really breastfeeding is your decision – don’t let others bully you into quitting. My in-laws (who we lived close to) hated that I breastfed our first and were so unsupportive, but I’m so happy I stuck to my guns. It is so worth it. Oh and remember the very best way to increase supply is to let baby nurse more often and for longer!

    Penny bites my toes too! I thought it very strange! She has bitten me a couple of times on the nipple but only when I offer her booby and she doesn’t actually want it. 😛

    campimama: Domperidone and Motilium are the same drug. Reglan is different. Many women in the US are prescribed Reglan because Domperidone is not FDA approved.

    ashlee- how do you mean constipated? Like the poo is hard, or she’s not going everyday? If it’s just that she isn’t going everyday, it’s ok for bf babies to do that. (If they’re only getting bm) There aren’t any fillers in mommy’s milk and it could just be that baby is using everything she is taking in with little waste. My son went 17 days once. His dr. freaked out, but he was fine, not uncomfortable or anything, just growing and using everything he was getting. If it’s hard, try drinking more water and eating more fruit and veges yourself. Also, I was hit and miss with the prenatals after I gave birth 🙂 They do recommend you continue with them though. *1byFaith* I’m with gladek, forgo the iron. Personally I think that God made our bodies capable of providing the nutrition our babies need. Just my personal feeling…

    On the whole nipple confusion thing, every baby is different. For my son’s first couple of days he had a bad case of jaundice and the hospital and doctors insisted we do every other feeding with an ounce or two of formula. I was going to cup feed, but ended up just giving him the bottle figuring we would have plenty of time to work at the breast after the whole issue. To my surprise there was NO issues. After that I would breastfeed mostly but pump occasionaly because back then I couldnt bring myself to nurse in public so I always brought a bottle out with us for my husband to give him. I would just make sure I pumped whenever he was eating to make sure my supply stayed up. He also had a pacifier from the beginning. He was a big sucker and was content sucking all day long which had no affect on our nursing. He is 11 months old now and still nursing fine. I dont know if we are the minority or what but I never understood where all the nipple confusion came from. I still only use slow-flo nipples though and very rarely give him a bottle myself. My bigger fear was going back to work and him not taking a bottle!
