Quoting *Lex!e* ( A&G's mom ):" Oh my!! This kid is killing me. He's eating almost every hour on the hour now, my nips are killing me. ... [snip!] ... mastitis so, I don't have much saved anymore, and I really do not want to give formula. What else can I do to keep up with him."

His frequent nursing is his way of making your body keep up with him. The more he nurses, the more milk is produced (even if he isn't getting much out). It can take up to three days of him nursing this way for your body to start producing enough to keep up with his demands. Pumping after feeding will increase supply as well (pump even after milk flow stops for about 3-5 minutes). If you still aren't making enough after that, try oatmeal, mother milk tea, or fenugreek.

**Also, how is it that someone who is not on my friends list and friends with a friend I have on FB that was not tagged in a pic, can comment on it?



I tagged my step mother in one and a friend of her friend who isn't on her FB commented on it-How can they see it?

Well Mamas,
It is October so I am going to change up the OP a bit. I figure it is probably better to ride the thread out and then once it has been locked, we can make a new one for September 2012 Mamas.


I'm thinking putting up all the birthdays in place of the Due dates. I know a lot of the mamas on the OP are not active in here anymore so if they do decide to come back in, I can add them in.
Sooooo shoot me your LO's bday and I can get started :D

Also, I wonder if anyone is still pregnant? :lol::lol:

Congrats to all the new moms!



This past few weeks have been so amazing but very tiring. Breastfeeding has not gone well for us. My OB and the lactation consultant though I had a yeast infection in both breasts but I still have a TON of pain each time I nurse even though I've already taken the complete cycle of Diflucan. I'm convinced its the nipple shield and the fact that LO has a unusually strong suck. lol. Even his pediatrician said not to nurse more than 10 minutes on each breast because of how strong it is. I nursed once after a few days rest and my nips were back to being very sore and burning. Its terrible :( Other than that, we are doing fantastic. LO is growing really well and our pediatrician was really impressed with how he is developing. Already holding his head up for a few moments and turning it from side to side. He even was moving his legs and inching forward as if to attempt crawling. Its so neat watching them do new things! How are you ladies and your babies doing? Its been so crazy at our house that I havent gotten on in a bit.

Isaac John. Born Sept 7th.



I love my little man to bits but i sure wish he'd go down in his basket. He hardly sleeps long flat and mostly will only settle when held to my chest or in his bouncer. Hes very strong willed already

Your step mum may have her privacy set so that friends of friends can see photos she is tagged in. That only thing I can think of
