Cow's Milk + Brown Sugar? by xkatx
Anyone ever hear about something this far fetched? I don't know why it popped into my mind, but back just before DD was born, MIL brought it up for the first time... Saying something about how SHE would take DD whenever... Shortly after DD was born, she had said the same thing... She'll take...

Just a question... by xkatx
I was wondering... What way do you find to be the most comfortable or comforting way to feed? Like, if it was possible for you to nurse the way you like best every time, what way would that be? And why? What about least favorite? I just ask because today I was laying in bed with DD2 feeding...

Not sure where to ask this... by xkatx
Don't know where to go (other than the doc, obviously) to find a possible answer to this question. DD2 is 5 months old now. Everything's been fine. She's nursing only, I'm taking that micronor (sp? - mini-pill) and haven't had an actual period since she was born. My bleeding stopped within a...

Visit to the ped's office by xkatx
We had an appointment for both the girls (DD1: 22 months, DD2: 7 months) today at 1. I had to drag DS along as well, and it went, surprisingly, pretty good this time. Doc checked DD1 out. She's about 32" tall and about 25lbs (IIRC, I can't remember exact numbers) she's doing pretty good. ...

I just need to do a little grr! by xkatx
So, ever since last Wednesday, DD2 has taken a liking to biting me every now and then. Boy, did I ever forget how painful that is. It started last Wednesday. We were at DSs soccer game, and DD2 is getting cranky and hungry. I started to nurse her. She was slightly worked up, I knew she was...

Wedding etiquette? by xkatx
I'm a bit stuck on this one, and I'm wondering if anyone has some words of advice. We have a wedding to attend at the end of August. It's for one of my childhood friends that lived down the block from me growing up. We were the best of friends from when her family moved into the neighbourhood...

I'm giving up... by xkatx
But only for tonight :D I picked up a small manual breast pump earlier today and thought I'd give it a shot. It was a decent price, and I can return it with exceptions within 90 days... I sat here pumping just now for what seems like forever. It was probably a good half an hour. Between...

A moment of support! by xkatx
Today I went with my mom and the kids to get school supplies for DS. I had all the kids with me, and we're doing our shopping. My mom was pushing DD1 in the cart, DS was walking and I had DD2 in the wrap. DD2 starts to fuss a bit and I *know* she's getting a bit tired and hungry. Out of the...

Family attacks? by xkatx
We had quite the interesting afternoon today... Went to my parents' place for dinner. DD2 is 11 months old now - wow, 11 months, actually, tomorrow - and is still nursing strong. She will take a sippy cup (the straw-type sippy cup ONLY) and normally I'll give her either just water or a...

Odd behavior? by xkatx
Just wondering if this is normal... DD2 is now just over 3 months. She's still nursing just fine, starting to sleep a lot longer at night and stays for longer stretches during the day between feedings. She's nursed almost always, but every so often I will offer a bottle of EBM. At the beginning...

I have a local LLL leader and the health nurse stumped... by xkatx
I have something strange going on, and it's left both an LLL leader and a health nurse wondering. For some reason, my nipples are extremely red, when they're normally like a light brown color. Just the nipples, not around or anything. Also, the nipples only are kind of peeling fine layers of...

Another cloth diaper question... by xkatx
I often find I follow the topics about cloth diapers... *I* use cloth diapers for DD, but DH won't because he just can't seem to be able to pin them and all that... He is also not a fan of rinsing diapers, so when he's with DD, he opts for the disposables, and when we go out, I put DD...

Milk already or never really went away? by xkatx
Alright, if this is TMI, I apologize first! For the last little while, I've noticed I do have the first stages of milk already. I'm checking how far along I am because I can't remember lol... I'm 35 weeks today. (Here's probably the TMI part) I have been able to squeeze small amounts of clear...

Question about pumping by xkatx
DD2, 1 week old today, has been nursing just fine. No problems at all. I feed her on demand and she does eat well. Yesterday, I was sitting at the table nursing and I realized that the side she was not feeding on was leaking. (Yes, I know this is normal) and I decided to kind of 'catch' it in...

Jaundice? by xkatx
DD2 will be 5 weeks old on Tuesday... She's nursing like a champ - eats like a horse (birth weight was 7lbs 3oz, at 8 days she was 7lbs 8oz, and at 3 weeks she was 9lbs 2oz, and haven't weighed her in 2 weeks yet, so not sure what her weight is now) She has plenty of dirty and wet diapers. She...

Does water help? by xkatx
....Just wondering... DD2 is 5 weeks. So far, weight gain has been great, she does seem to be eating enough, but lately, maybe the last week or so, I've noticed that she's doing the same thing as DD1 did... She'll eat, and then it's almost like she gets angry and frustrated. She'll try to suck...

Kinda OT... Slings/wraps/carriers? by xkatx
IIRC, Irene had put a link showing ideas on how to make your own wrap... I found he http://www.mamatoto.org/documents/MakeAWrap.pdf a basic home made wrap that you just buy the material and go, and it also has a few ways to wear it. Last night, I went out to the Walmart and picked up 5m (it...

Mixing??? by xkatx
I thought this was a big no-no... Mixing formula and breast milk... The quickness of the situation... A lady on a local board for mostly SAHMs is going for surgery on Thursday. She has a 10ish week old daughter. Exclusively bf. Baby is going to the inlaws for 3 days while she recovers from...

Storage dilemma by xkatx
I've been pumping and storing since almost the beginning after DD2 was born. She's 3 months old tomorrow (wow!) She's had bottles of EBM every now and then, and when I first started pumping and storing, I bought the stupidly expensive bags that are zipper-sealed, intended for storing...

Milk with breast milk? by xkatx
I'm just wondering... DD2 is still nursing and still going strong. She's just about 16 months now - wow, does time fly or what?? She currently nurses first thing in the morning, just before breakfast, sometimes will nurse before her nap (often, though, she'll only go for a couple minutes before...
