  1. Breastfeeding Challenges
    I wont bother with the whole year of my painful breastfeeding journey. i nursed for almost a full year just weeks shy, but am on pain medication that is not ok for my son because of the pain in my breasts. Please do not judge me or try to tell me to push through if you would like to know just...
  2. Breastfeeding Challenges
    I am struggling with low supply. My 2 and a half week baby is still pretty far from his birth weight. Currently I am supplementing with donor milk and nursing and pumping every two hours during the day and every 3 hours at night to try to boost my supply. I am also taking herbal tinctures...

  4. Breastfeeding
    <p>My son just turned 1. I exclusively breastfed and pumped for about 7 months. After that, I BF + he would have 1-2 bottles of formula at daycare. Now, he is only BF at night. I enjoy nursing, and didn't used to mind that he wanted to nurse several times a night. I didn't feel that we were...

  6. Breastfeeding Challenges
    <p>Hi all!  I am 5 months pregnant with my first and I am having a problem feeling comfortable with the idea of breast feeding.  I have 4 friends who all have babies who breast feed, and it doesn't bother me to see them do it.  However, just thinking about doing it myself makes my skin crawl. ...

  8. Breastfeeding Challenges
    <p>DS2 was born last October with Spina Bifida, so there was never a time to get the rest I should have had as a breastfeeding mama of three, and I had two bouts of mastitis, one in each breast, when DS2 was still in the NICU after the initial surgeries.</p> <p> </p> <p>DS2 is doing well...
  9. Breastfeeding Challenges
    Hello my baby is 6 days old and in the Nicu. Been pumping like crazy. I bf my first son and pumped for 10 months. My milk just drops out while pumping. I'm not getting that full spray effect out of the nipples- just these lane drops. And milk is transitioning from colostrum to reg milk. Noobs...
  10. Breastfeeding Challenges
    My breasts seem to hate me. I have serious supply issues. My milk came in quickly and well, but never increased with the needs of my baby. I'm still producing his one week old diet at 12 weeks and it's driving me crazy. So far this is our regimen: we nurse on demand around the clock. If he...

    <p>Hi everyone,</p> <p>I'm new here and in desperate need of some guidance!</p> <p> </p> <p>LO is 13 months, and we've had our share of nursing ups and downs, but NOTHING like this before. For the last week or so I've been having horrible pain when he latches on the left side (the...
  12. Breastfeeding Challenges
    <p>I desperately need some advice.  My son is 7 weeks old and we've had a terrible time breastfeeding.  His latch was off in the beginning and at 9 days old he had lip & tongue-tie surgeries.  My nipple pain didn't improve in the weeks afterwards and 3 weeks ago we determined that we both had...

  15. Breastfeeding Challenges
    This all started about 3 weeks ago when I had to go to work for 8 hours and my friend fed my baby boy from a bottle with my pumped milk. This is my second baby. I had zero problems breast feeding my first one. Every time after that day my DS would latch on, suck for a minute and then would...

    <p>I thought <a href="http://www.mothering.com/community/t/1383720/does-breastfeeding-make-travel-easier">this conversation on breastfeeding on the road</a> was really interesting. For many, breastfeeding does make travel easier...plus, it's so neat to nurse in new and unusual places. ;) </p>...

    This issue has repeated itself with each child, but I'm feeling it earlier now. This is #5, and she's only 6 days old.<br> On one side it's normal, and on the other there is almost nothing.<br> I pumped after nursing today, and had 1/8 of an ounce, and the other side 2 ounces.<br><br> With #1...

    <p>I get a wee bit twitchy when formula vs. breast milk debates happen and women go on about how easy breastfeeding is, how much easier it is than formula feeding, and how easy it c/would be if you just did "x".  I'm <strong>not</strong> doing anything wrong.  It isn't easy.  Some women have...
