How is it going?


We're doing pretty good! I'm so happy that it's going better this time than it did with DS. We'll hit 5 months on Sunday! I've had some supply issues but I'm taking a lactation support vitamin now that seems to be helping.

we're doing great! i had a ton of problems in the beginning (clogged ducts, cracked nipples, mastitis, nipple blebs, latch problems, you name it, i had it ) but things lately have been awesome. i am so glad that i stuck through it all. although the fact that she refuses bottles may have something to do with that.

Wow that is a lot to go through! Good for you for sticking with it. I'm not sure I would have been able to do it!

LOL It's always nice to have support. I don't really have that. No one gets on me about BF but they don't understand why it means so much to me either. My mom didn't BF.

Going great, that's what I'm doing right now! Other than thrush off and on (actually on quite a bit) since January everything is good. Even though he started foods my supply hasn't really dropped much. Still nurses quite a bit and I pump at work.

Going good, Catie turned 5 months old today. She nurses on demand, still wakes up 2+ times at night to feed. I just started her on solids on 3/26. She also gets 1-2 bottles of formula or EBM a day.

It's going better than I ever expected it would! I stopped pumping at work and she's getting frozen BM with formula during the day. Still BF in the morning and evenings - I've thought about weaning completely, but it makes me really sad - so I'll keep doing what I'm doing. I am only nursing 2-3x per day, so I feel like my milk is drying up, but we'll wait and see what happens.

I love nursing Bailey she is definitely my best booby baby she only gets bottles when im not home and a 6 oz bottle at bed time since my supply is gone by that time of night for some reason... prolly since her bedtime feeding is the one i used to miss while at work. No intentions of weaning anytime soon for us

going good here will hit 6 months in less than a week, I am lucky I have had no problems at all no thrush, clogged ducts, sore nipples or anything, I think that is why I have not even thought of weaning Elise makes it very easy on mama

I am doing great. Xander loves to nurse it is his comfort thing.

He really hates the bottle the only time he will take it is at daycare cause I am not around and that is the only way he will get fed.

Jillian nurses for comfort too. It's amazing sometimes how fast she'll calm down as soon as she can latch on. I can feel all of the tension leave her body.

Still going strong. It will be 6months on Monday (one week from now) I have even kept up with pumping at work. Though his bottles have always been half BM and half formula since I don't get to pump as often at work as I would need to. I'm proud of myself for sticking with the pumping since it's not the most comfortable thing to do.

echo is a biter too. i've been covering my nip and saying "no bite" firmly and then waiting a minute to let her nurse again. it seems to stop the biting for that session usually. i don't think she really understands but i'm trying to be consistent.

We've made it 5 months and I don't plan on stopping. I got mastitis a few times and several clogged ducts, but made it through. She hasn't started solids yet so just breast milk for her. She does seem really interested in eating so we're going to start soon. She does like to play around when she's eating like blowing because she likes what sound it makes. It's pretty funny! She's the first baby I've been successful with breastfeeding so I'm glad I finally figured it out.

biting? I have a baby who will turn while still latched on at the slightest noise and it hurts soooo bad!
