A nursing position to resolve mastitis. Basically, you dangle the boob on top of baby, jaw pointed to the sore bit. Works a treat! The theory is that the gravity helps clear the plugged duct.

 

(seems a little rude though...)

Yes, because I lactate 1%.

Hah, I had someone tell me my bf only baby was too fat, because she only had breastmilk!

That breastfeeding isn't good for babies, as you never know how much they take... (that was from a mum of a newborn)

When my son was 2 months old, I went to an all-day meeting without him and used my manual pump in the "lounge" area of the restroom.  A lady asked me a lot of nosy questions about the age of my baby and my plans for going back to work and so forth, and then told me, "You don't have to keep pumping!  Just give him formula while you're away and nurse while you're home.  Don't listen to the doctors; trust your body!"  As if my body might be telling me something other than that it was making milk and I would be more comfortable getting it out of me....

My mom told me to make a slurry of Rice cereal, whole milk and corn syrup to feed my 5 week old. To fatten him up because he isn't getting enough milk.

Love this board but I have no idea what all the abbreviations are. Any cheat sheets out there?

I had someone today tell me that I traumatized their 15yo.  I was speechless.  Still kind of am.

Lol, love this thread! I so needed a good laugh today!smile.gif

My youngest DD was a preemie and I constantly heard how I needed to put cereal in a bottle to fatten her up.
Also how that if I continued to BF her that she would never get enough to eat because I couldn't see how much she was eating.. Hmmm I though she would stop eating when she was full?!? Lol
I love reading all these stories.

From my Grandpa yesterday, "shouldn't you give him more bottles? He's having to work too hard." Meaning my son's had weight gain issues recently and he thought me pumping milk for him would be better. Lol, he got along fine without any bottles and got his first at four months old.

 

And before we went out to eat "Are you bringing a bottle of pumped milk?" I think he was hinting that nursing in the restaurant would be weird. I ended up having to comfort nurse him to sleep, but we were the only people there and our waitress was pregnant.

 

I've had my struggles and worked hard to keep going, making people uncomfortable isn't something I worry about anymore.

Speaking of resturants, we were at a chinese buffet and I needed to nurse DS, and my sister was like "aren't you going to cover up??!!?!" I was just like "At this age, he ends up exposing me more with the cover than just nursing him normal" She says OK sarcastically and rolls her eyes.

What a great thread! These are hilarious and sad too that people are so misinformed. 

My husband and I were at his parents for some holiday and our daughter was less than a year old. I heard his sister say "She's not still nursing is she?"
my dh just glared at her and she shut up pretty quick. Then one time I was sitting in my car in the grocery store parking lot nursing with a cover on. This old man

 walks over and asks me what I'm doing. I told him I was feeding her and he was like "oh... don't you think it's weird when women nurse

their babies up to two years? There's something wrong with that". Rather than get in an argument I was like Oh yeah.. sure. Thankfully right at this moment

my dh came out of the store. People are so dang weird. I should have told him that babies who are breastfed longer are proven healthier and smarter. ;)

My mom is starting to get weird about my continued (though somewhat ebbing) breastfeeding.  I casually mentioned that every woman about my age (and even some older moms) in her church seem to be nursing their toddlers.  She had no response to that.
