Anxiety relief?

Hey all! I'm cautiously joining you! I'm 8 weeks pregnant and have an almost 2 year old girl. Without giving my whole history, I had a heck of a time pulling off my last pregnancy (a string of...

Re: I'm out...again :(

I'm so sorry. I just wanted to add my two cents (and support) - I had three miscarriages in one year before I got pregnant with Adeline who is a super healthy 2 year old). The first was at 10 weeks,...

Re: My nipples!

Have you tried bamboobies? I tried almost every kind on the market, and it made me itch (I thought I had a yeast infection for months), but bamboobies are wonderful!! you don't feel them at all. They...

Re: Breast Milk Storage

My sister warned me this might happen. She said it did to hers occasionally, but that it doesn't actually go bad, and it's safe to give to baby - but just has a funky smell. I'm not sure there is...

Re: passifier

Well good to know they will spit it out if they are actually hungry. She'll take it and will ravenously suck, and it doesn't necessarily calm her, that's why I was wondering. I guess I'll cave a...

Re: SAHM how are yall doing?

I'm not going to be a SAHM for much longer, another 3-4 weeks only. But, I've surprised myself, and while I never thought I would want to, I sort of really want to stay at home with her! It's so...

passifier

I don't mention this to start a debate, but I am curious on your use or no use of passifiers. We haven't been using them, but now my husband wants to, and I'm on the fence. How often and how long do...

Re: Question for pumping/working moms

Ok, good to know it doesn't drastically affect your supply. I have heard working decreases your supply a bit. I'll post in the pumping board, too, but it sounds like most people pump both sides. I...

Re: prayers please

It might help her to hear that I also had 3 miscarriages all in one year, right before having my healthy, little girl this October. I was panicked right up until I held her in my arms, and I still...

Re: Fussy eater..

I have similar problems. I laughed outloud when I sprayed her in the eye by mistake... I had no idea you could do that! I only do one breast per feeding and lean really far back. She's starting to...

Re: PP weight check in!

I lost about 30 and have about 7 more to go 5 wks pp. But most of it came off the first week, and I've been steady since.

Re: Baby acne?

Yeah, poor little Adeline looks pretty rough with it, too - all over her cheeks, forehead and neck. I've read that it's hormones in breastmilk. Hers has gotten worse and then gets white flakes before...

Re: So... now that the babies are here

So far, it's been awesome. Exhausting of course, but I feel like I was prepared. I also think I have it easy right now because both my husband and I have off and we can tag team all day. It feels...

Re: 3 week growth spurt - q's

My advice is wait and it'll change :) Your post sounds exactly like what Adeline did for several days last week, and the day after I started to crack, she suddenly went 3-4 hours between feedings,...

Re: Ouch my nip! (yes, just one)

I had the same problem (without pumping), and it's just getting tolerable. The lactation consultant thought it was thrush, but I wasn't convinced, since it started the first day while they said the...

Re: Who is going back to work?

I head back in January. Glad to have some more time, but I'm realizing it's going fast and will be hard to go back! Just like some of you, my husband will be staying at home with her. He's awesome,...

Re: How long before you felt better PP?

Maybe I'm just a woos, but I had 3 small tears, and I'm just starting to feel like I can tolerate them a month later (two are vaginal, and the stitches rub each other). But, that said, I also expect...

Re: Where have you breastfed?

Boy, I'm lame. Just my house and the doctors office. I am not coordinated to do it in public. First, my boobs are huge, so I can't discreetly do it without a piece of cloth, and the one I have,...

Re: New Mom Jitters

I would say what others have: keep it short. We've done mini outings, and so far, they've been fine. What I don't quite get though, is how to breastfeed in public! So so far, I've kept my outings...

Re: So! What do you do with a newborn?

So glad you asked - I was wondering the same, questioning that I'm not stimulating her enough. She seems pretty happy with a little less stimulation though. When we have visitors, she gets really...
