    Hi ladies, just wanted to stop in and ask a question. My LO is 5months and here lately my boobs are starting to hurt again. They are quite tender. Almost how they felt when I first started to BF. I have not been feeling well either. I thought I could be pregnant again but I have taken 5-7 tests and have all been negative. And ideas what could be going on. I have no fever and no redness around my nipples so I don’t think they are infected. Any ideas would be great.

    ~*Well the reason I don’t pump anymore (I have 24oz of it frozen) is b/c he will not for any reason take a bottle!!! He will scream if you put it in his mouth!!! But alittle update today has been so wonderful!! The one that said he was growing I think was right he is now eating every 2-3 hours again all day today!!! It’s also hard to pump when he sleeps b/c I have 4 other children! And I also want as much milk in there as can be for when he wakes b/c he is a great eater haha! He has done this before and yes I wondered if he was getting enough then! I guess after feeding my other 4 children formula and being able to see how much they got has me worried b/c I have no clue how much he gets! I’m just putting it in God’s hands he knows how much I have prayed about this!! Thanks everyone this site has helped me so much with this baby!!! Anyone who wants to add me PLEASE do cause I come on here often!!*~

    I breastfed my first until 22months. We did it everywhere and so with this new one I’m confident about going anywhere with him. I do feed everywhere and without any looks. I guess confidence helps. People kind of feel that they shouldn’t mess with some people. HAHA! My newest little guy was 3weeks yesterday and already almost 13lbs! He’s so big I almost forget he is only 3weeks!

    i think it just depends on the baby. My LO was EBF from the beginning and she slept really, really well in her crib in her own room from day 1. Maybe i just got lucky!

    andbabymakes6 – Congrats! That’s hard when thry are born early! The more he feeds the more you’ll make which is why supplimenting is probably not the best option ynless you are pumping when he’s being supplimented. You need as much stimulation as possible. You can also drink mother’s milk tea and take herbs or eat fermented oatmeal to help out. I don’t have a supply problem but I still drink mother’s milk and eat fermented oatmeal a couple times a week.

    Bri, at least I have company! Zach is actually 8mo old, but I have been hanging back in the 0-1mo pages to help with all their BF questions and I too feel like the radical! You and I are on the same page with everything you just listed off!

    Momofcash- I go back to work in a week and I already knew you have more milk in the mornings, due to your hormone level. How is it that I never thought of waking up earlier to pump a little extra, LOL! Thanks!

    DS never really took a bottle. He wouldn’t take a soother at all. It took a lot of different types of bottles to finally get him to take one. By the time he did, he was almost 9months. I weaned him pretty much straight to a sippy cup. With DD, I have given her a bottle twice, both times was when we were out, and she took maybe an ounce, if that. But, she LOVES her Nuk soother, the ones shaped like a mothers nipple. She will not sleep without it.

    butterflykisses715 – The other girls are right, definately from the stomache acids breaking it down. Fresh milk isn’t bad when it gets spit up but Alex tends to spit up an hour or two after eating. That’s a lot of fun! HAHA! Yuck! It’s ok though.

    LaIslaBonita, nope, you are doing anything wrong! When pumping after a feeding, I was told that it was normal to get out less than .5oz and that it would increase in volume the more you did it. This was from the video ‘Laugh and Learn about Breastfeeding.’ She recommended that you pump after the first three nursing sessions of the day because that is when you are going to get the most milk.

    mrsjmickens1 – You have no idea what type of person emilee is. You have no idea what she’s been through or even the entire conversation regarding this so called friend. Please remember this when you judge her and others on this site.

    godiva, i went quite conservagtive with mine. cold turkey i cut out all dairy and soy. that means even butter as that comes from a milk source, even whey, casein, sodium lactate, etc because that all comes from dairy. 50% of babies with a dairy intolerance will also have a soy intolerance thats why i cut taht out also. so no soy sauce, edemame, vegetable oil (it comes from soybeans), etc.

    Here is a good program, you get to try brand new diapers for 3 weeks and if you decide to return them no worries about stains or anything all for $10… http://www.jilliansdrawers.com/products/clothdiapers/tryclothfor10/tryclothfor10
