I got to meet Abigail this morning! ::: She is so sweet and so tiny! I always forget how little they are until I get to hold a teeny tiny newborn. My kids were very cranky or I would have stayed longer, but we did get to visit a little and see what a great big sister Elisabeth is already. "Hi Corbin, I have a baby!" was the first thing she said to my 4-year-old when we arrived. Back on topic, I think I combined my Adderall with too much caffeine this morning, and I...
They're rude, but I'm not sure your attitude is the best one either. If you have serious low supply - either "true" low supply or, like I had, low supply caused by undiagnosed bad latch (which is still bad because he wasn't gaining weight and I didn't know why and I couldn't fix it) - and you go into breastfeeding with nothing but determination, you will eventually find yourself torn between two unbearable choices: giving your baby formula, or watching your baby go...
Alyse has good news this morning but I will wait and see if she wants to be the first to share it.

I am nursing, but only a teeny, teeny bit ... Simon is 22 months (!) now and my supply went down a ton when I stopped pumping at work. He gets a couple of bottles of cow's milk at night now, and he nurses maybe once a day and mostly for comfort. I checked the Hale's forums before I went on it, and it looks like it's a class C drug, which means there's a possible risk but not a definite one, I think. If I were nursing a newborn full-time, I'm not sure I'd risk it.
Alyse keeps bugging me to post here and I keep not getting around to it. So much for being better with the ADD stuff. So anyway ... I started with the Adderall XR 15 mg and found it made me jittery and anxious. It helped *some* but if anything else triggered my anxiety, it would get bad fast. Instead of lacking focus because of normal flightiness/distractibility, I would lose focus because I was freaking out internally. "OMG! I need to do laundry! Wait! Dishes first!...
P.S. I am reading the old thread now and would like to point out that I'm maggirayne's "friend who is as messy as I am." I should have guessed it then, huh? I'm starting a 15 mg Adderall XR prescription today. We'll see how it goes.
Got diagnosed this morning and subscribing. Have to catch up on reading now.

Yeah, rules are you have to start fresh. But you have a couple options - you can choose to break the rules (there's even a...
