I've been on NuvaRing and have been on it for 4 1/2 months. I only recently had a drop in supply, but I believe it's due to seeing DS less and less and having to pump.
My midwife recommended...

I have this problem, and it bothers me too. Mostly because my husband likes to make fun of me. I found that if I use Medela pads they're smooth and not too thick (like Johnson and Johnson). They...

Thirding the Breastflow. We had serious issues getting DS to take a bottle, and now he takes those like a champ. With other bottles it seemed like he would choke because the milk came out too fast.

DS is really into spitting right now. While it is kind of cute (like everything he does), it's also kind of annoying and gross. I'm not talking about drool dripping down his chin, more like flinging...

This has happened once or twice with DS, but he's only four months. He hardly seems to notice. Does your LO seem like they're in distress?

Haha, I tried this with DS (4 months) a week ago, with me putting a cloth over my face and he cried and cried. Apparently it's wayyyyyy too soon.

I have nothing helpful to add, but would like to know how you get it all through security. Just keep it in 3 oz bags? Or is there an exception for pumped milk?

My 3.5 month old poops 1-2x a day. I'm not jealous of those of y'all that have 5+! Although maybe if they're that often they're not as...severe.
