    SunshineMaria- maybe can you tighten the straps on the carseat so he can’t get out so easily. I would make sure the buckle is up high at armpit level too so he can’t look at it while he is trying to unbuckle himself. That is a scary situation, i would pull over and buckle him back up when he does this. Good luck and let us know how it goes.

    torybailey- It varies from person to person when your cycle comes back. Some women get it back at the very beginning, some not until they wean completely. My son is 11 months and I just got mine back. There really isn’t a set answer as to when it will return.

    suzm – My drop is significant and always the week leading up to my period. So I guess it varies.

    lauraID that sounds like whats going on. My LO does the same thing with the choking thing and I just give her a burp and she’s fine after that and we continue the feeding.

    amandajo – I don’t always feel a letdown while feeding and sometimes I feel it when I’m not even feeding – especially if I hear my LO cry or am thinking about her 🙂 Personally if everything else is going well (ie. baby’s gaining weight, has a good amount of wet and dirty diapers, etc), I wouldn’t worry about it. Maybe kellymom.com has some good info for you?

    OMG my inlaws were the worst!!! I refused to breastfeed in front of them so I always used feeding times as a time to just escape to another room for privacy (and a breather). Every single time I disappeared they would tell my husband that obviously I was using the breastfeeding as an excuse to keep them away from their grandchild! Ha! And while I admit it was an ultra-convenient way to getaway for a bit, it kills me that they can even turn me feeding my child to be all about them.

    caybaby-maybe your let down is to much? esp in the mornings found i was spraying my lo ddnt realize thats why she kept screaming and pulling off, i pumped or hand expressed some that helped and leaning back. also what wrks 4 us when let don isnt an issue is nursing in motion she likes to look at everything so i walk around and nurse her i think she started doing the crying pulling away about 10weeks thats when i started walking and nursing . try and relax they can tell when we are tense and frustrated it gets better promise!

    lorelaismom-Of all the milk increasing remedies none worked for me. So it is funny that eggnog does the trick. I guess different things work for different women.

    at the mall they have an area for moms to nurse, which is soo great and relaxing, but im wondering how can we get more places of buisness to do this? people dont want to see woman breastfeeding in public so shouldnt they make a place for us? besides the nasty bathroom or hiding out in our cars? wish i were a little more brave and didnt care soo much about how other people feel- but yes i have gone into the bathroom twice yuck i wont do it again. i mean when u are in walmart and your baby is screaming what do u do? i have groceries in my cart, there is no where to sit, my baby weighs 20 lbs so i cant walk around plus everyone will be staring at me ugh im telling u i wish people were more open or that more places had nursing rooms

    Thank you to everyone for your responses to my post. I think I’ll just give it a couple more weeks and discuss it at her one month check up.

    Hi ladies, my supply started to go low so I bought Fenugreek capsules. Took two capsules three times a day and it worked. My supply is back! When my supply got low I pumped for a feed and only got 1 ounce. I had been producing 8-12 ounces. Within 3 days I was back in action. I also drank mothers tea with it. I debated over the fermented oatmeal but just couldnt do it, lol.

    thetoymomma, I don’t have this problem myself, but I have seen others talking on here about their children having issues with reflux. I can’t remember what came of it, I think one may have been put on medication, and possibly some people had to change their diet, but again, wasn’t an issue with us, so I’m not too sure. Hopefully someone else can give you a better answer.

    huh, i am definately going to go get a check up with my doc to make sure everythings ok, and actually i use to have a problem prior to getting pregnant with dryness and now sex feels better than ever actually! but i am concerned about the excessive discharge especially if it seems to be the opposite for other breastfeeding moms.

    *wyatts*mommy* – I blame growth spurt. In the first 3 months their tummies are constantly growing with a few major jumps. These nursing marathons last a few days and then he’ll go back to normal once your supply has reached his level of need. No worries. Just keep nursing on demand.
