    If you're new to breastfeeding, or even if you're not, you may have pondered the question of 'to cover or not?' The answer is, "It's up to you," and there's no law that says you have to. Still, if you're looking for the best nursing covers for your own comfort levels and needs, we've checked...

    I'm not feeling very confident about nursing in public, does anyone have any recommendations about which nursing covers are best to use?
  3. Breastfeeding
    DD is 2 1/2 weeks old. Pretty much the only way she falls asleep is by "comfort" nursing. I have no problem with this. Except when it is 3 am and she has been doing it for almost 2 hours and is making herself frantic and worn out and reducing me to tears. If I sit up in bed and try to...

    my lo is 10 months old. she's in childcare and has always taken a bottle well. for the last couple of weeks she's only been drinking about half of each bottle and it's been tough to get her to take that. i assumed it was because of an ear infection she was getting over and the fact that she was...

    I've been using Lansinoh disposable nursing pads but I find that they bunch up quite a bit and the scrunched up material can be really uncomfortable. Also, I feel guilty about using disposables...I'd prefer to save the money and use cloth. Any recommendations on comfortable washable nursing...

    My 3 month old son is teething and actually has 1 tooth fully out and is working on the next one,it's almost out all the way. He's been biting down a little while nursing. It doesn't hurt to bad yet,but I'm starting to feel a bit nervous that it might. If he bites,even a little nibble I'll say...

    DD is just two (like, four days ago!), and nursed all through my pregnancy. DS is one week old. DD's frequency has increased, I think due to both needing the time with me and because there's actually milk again. DS is a super lazy nurser, and I'm massively engorged, and I just can't seem to get...
  8. Breastfeeding
    Yesterday I started to feel a tender area about 2x2" at the top of my right breast, about 2 inches above my nipple and down towards it. Feels tender like a bruise. I applied heat last night, have been nursing on that side first every feeding, and am trying to rest, but it seems like the pain...

    I will try and keep this short. :) DD1 nursed 4 years. DD2 weaned herself @ 2.5 when I was pregnant with DD3. DD3 has some health issues. We initially thought it stemmed from severe allergies 2 months of TEDs and chasing other things, a month on Neocate pumping around the clock, and Drs Drs...

    . . . and how much solids do they eat? My 9 m.o recently started eating more and more solids. He still nurses about 4 times a night and maybe 5 times or more a day, and now has breakfast lunch and dinner of solids, plus water and diluted apple juice. I am trying to have a good transition of...
  11. Breastfeeding
    I know it's silly, but I was just wondering if anyone has done this before or found some other way to lift them. My girls are not perky at all. My nipples point pretty much straight down. It took a good while before I could nurse DS while laying down and I couldn't nurse while walking around...
  12. Breastfeeding Beyond Infancy
    Ds is 16 months. My ds was always a bad nurser due to health issues. I tried to get him to nurse all the time, but we struggled. And now that he is older, things are getting better for him and he can nurse no problem. And now more than ever he wants to nurse all the time in addition to...
  13. Breastfeeding
    We've had this problem on and off, but now it's really come to a head as lately DS refuses to sleep without my nip in his mouth or his mouth in proximity to my nip so he can pop on and off it all night long. When nursing side-lying, DS gets really frantic and quite violent while sucking. He's...
  14. Breastfeeding
    I got two nursing covers as gifts before the baby was born, and I was like: No way I'll ever use those, pffft! Well, fast forward six months and I realize I have to use a cover when we're NIP because DS gets sooooo distracted otherwise! In fact, he even gets distracted at home and I've...
  15. Breastfeeding
    My baby will have days (or couple day stretches) where she'll refuse to eat for hours at a time. The other day she just kept screaming and arching and refusing to nurse to the point that she actually had a small amount of brick dust in her diaper and when I weighed her, she was a few ounces...
