Hello everyone. I am desperate mama looking for advices. This is going to be a long post, sorry in advance. My baby will be 3 months in 10 days. She was born in 38th week of pregnancy. She had small mouth and I had flat nipples, so it has been difficult latching her since begining. I started using nipple shields from day 4 and couldn't wean her off of it until she was two months. She ... Read More

I’m losing my mind a little, so thought I would see if any mamas out there have experienced what I am going through with my son and moved past it...it’s a long one. I am breastfeeding my 12 week old baby and desperately want to continue, but it is starting to seem like our journey may have to come to an end. Labour and birth was quite traumatic, he was stuck for a long time before ... Read More

I am exclusively BFing my 5 week old DD. My breasts used to be overfull and leaking a couple weeks back and my LO had greenish poop (the pediatrician said this is probably indicating foremilk hindmilk imbalance). So I started block feeding. Block feeding has reduced the oversupply issue to a limit that my breasts feel very empty and it feels like an undersupply now. Also my LO's poop ... Read More

I was wondering if you or anyone you know has successfully breastfed with one normal nipple and one inverted nipple? I went to my lactation consultant and they had me try the nipple shield and it didn't work. My baby is 3 months old and I have been able to feed him successfully and meet his needs with just the one normal breast but I'm afraid I won't be able to do that for much longer ... Read More

I am due with baby #2 the end of April. With my first I was never able to produce enough milk for him. I did supplements, cookies, water, Gatorade, lactation consultant, acupuncture, hospital grade pump, sns... the list goes on. I did nurse, bottle feed, pump every feeding for 6 months before I gave up. I feel like I missed out on the most important beginning of my sons life because ... Read More

I believe I have an oversupply. Breasts always feel full, leaking, and my almost 3 week old is very fussy after each feed, spits up A LOT and has gas and explosive poops. I currently alternate breasts at each feed. Sometimes he nurses for 8-10min and is done and other times it's almost 20. Never consistent. Besides leaning back and continuing to alternate breasts - any other tips to ... Read More

My ebf son is just a month old and the pst week he has been going through what I thought to be a growth spurt. Beforehand, he was having a bit of difficulty gaining as much weight which upon examination realized he had a tongue tie. He had it clipped but now he will not stop nursing at all! It is almost all day long! I have seen two lactation consultants and neither one of them seemed ... Read More

Has anyone been able to transition from exclusively pumping to nursing? My son is 4 months and finally learned to latch! However, I have an over supply and don't want to cut back from pumping too fast. Currently I am pumping at 7,11,1,4,7,10 for about 20 minutes and I get about 60 ounces. I don't want to end up with mastitis again ... Read More

Hello, I'm slightly concerned about my almost 6 week old EBF girl. For the past 4 days, she started decreasing how long she nurses, she would nurse for 10 minutes at a time, then 8 minutes, now I'm lucky if I get her to nurse for 5 minutes before she shows no more interest and wants to sleep. However, at night time she seems to be nursing for hours, starting at around 9pm, and going ... Read More
