  • Forum Reply: Re: The Hospital Experience

    I feel like i had a pretty good experience all things considered. A lot of complications leading up to my c-section delivery, and due to the c-section and magnesium sulfate it definitely made for an ever harder start to nursing. But i found many of the nurses extremely helpful. I ask a lot of questions...
  • Forum Reply: Re: Some advice please...

    I'm so sorry you have to make this choice. Mommies carry such a burden. I agree that you don't have to stop completely and honestly the weaning process would be better for both of you if you didn't. You'll ache a little during the day but nurse as soon as you go home and all throughout...
  • Forum Reply: Re: Nursing in public

    I was so modest before I had my daughter. Not any more! I don't mind nursing in public. The cover ups do work great. I have the BEBE AU Lait brand with the bonig at the top so I can see baby. Another trick is to use a dressing room because they're ususlly much cleaner than restrooms. The trouble...

  • Forum Thread: How do you measure the time between feeds?

    How do you measure the amount of time between breastfeedings? I have been nursing every 2 hours from the time I start feeding. For Example, I start at 7am and he nurses for about 45 mins. I then would start to nurse again at 9am. Or do you count your two hours from the time you ended the feed. Any...
  • Forum Thread: Newborn Twins, Supplementing, help

    I just recently gave birth to identical twin girls on October 31. We started breastfeeding in the hospital and everything was going good. They did have to be supplemented the first night, because I had some issues after delivery and they had to eat. But then was straight breastfeeding. Then on our first...
  • Forum Reply: Re: Which bottles work best for breastmilk?

    I am still nursing my 9 month old son but still needed bottles for daycare. I was using the evenflo comfi bottles. He started refusing his bottles so I researched a lot of different bottles.

    I have been trying to get my daughter, who just turned 8 weeks to sleep more through the night. At first she seems to wake up as soon as her music turns off, but after about midnight she sleeps better. I have just started last week and I have been trying three hour feeding cycles.

  • Forum Thread: Pumping Breastmilk

    My son is nine months old and I am still breastfeeding and working. Now that he is older and is on solid food he only nurses 4-5 times a day every 4-6 hours. Do I still need to be pumping every 2-3 hours when I am away from him or can I just pump when he would normally eat?

  • Forum Reply: Re: Engourgement period

    It really is so much easier to breastfeed your baby than mess with the pumping. It is often recommended not to pump until you have been breastfeeding successfully for more than a month. I nursed my son every 2 hours during the day and he was waking up every 4 hours at night. The engorgement period is...
