You freaked me out so I took a test and it was negative. Surely it would be a BFP if I were having symptoms by now. I don't know when I'm due for AF because it has varied ever since I got my mirena out.

Yeah, very painful nipples while nursing was the only symptom I had and then two weeks after it started I got my BFP. However, we had thrush when my girl was a newb and it felt very similar, pain wise, but I would think your LO would be exhibiting symptoms of that was it.

You are really freaking me out now lol. I'll keep an eye out for thrush. I am/was worried because that's what I thought it was. One of my friends said maybe mastitis because I'm sick right now too and she was saying maybe that's why I'm sick.

Quoting Steph+Alice+Caroline:" Alice got better as she got older. I could explain to her that it hurt and tell her to relatch. Caroline doesn't seem to care. I'll say "you're hurting mommy" and she'll say "no I'm not." Meanie lol."

M got better but got REALLY bad recently, I know she isnt going to wean for a bit bc her sister was just born. I worry she will wean at the same time LOL. ITs gotten SO BAD in the past couple of months

That could well be. When I had mastitis I felt like I had the flu. I had a fever and I just felt terrible. Do you have any clogged ducts that you know of? That's what caused my mastitis. But my nipples didn't hurt for that, just the actual clogged duct and the area around it.

my toddler did similar things to my nipples because she was doing some bad latching - it was easily corrected since i could reason with her. Maybe look into yeast infections or mastitis type stuff too ???

Quoting ☮Scarlet Begonia:" http://forum.baby-gaga.com/about2365745.html Can anyone help me out? My son completely self weaned himself ... [snip!] ... self weaned himself and now wants to breastfeed again and I have no milk left because this pregnancy dried me all up :("


I would gues you do have some milk left. My daughter self weaned pretty much with the pregnancy before last and wanted nothing to do with it because of the taste apparently. I did end up loosing that baby and a month or so later she was asking to nurse again nad apparently didn't have a problem with the taste. I would guess your baby "knows" that your milk is changing and is now "ok" with it - I think they can smell the difference. Try it and see what happens????

Thanks, but there is definitely nothing left. I can't even squeeze anything out when I try :(
He's very smart too and speaks well and tells me there's "no breastmilk" but still wants to try lol
He hasn't asked for a few days so maybe it will end?

M really wants to not hurt me, she will unlatch and make a big wide mouth to try again, but it doesnt work anymore. I wonder if her latch is getting worse because she is reaching the age of weaning. She will be 4 in a couple of months. But I dont think she will wean.

Nettle is safe in pregnancy and can increase your milk supply, it also will help you better use the iron you take in since it is high in clorophyll so win win. You can take it in capsules or tea :)

He was ready to wean(I thought) and pretty much stopped with no fuss which is the most confusiung thing about why he's asking again all of a sudden. I'd love for him to pick up again once the colostrum comes in or once the baby's here :)
And my nipples aren't as sensitive anymore so I will try the tea!

Its really common for that to happen. And they nurse WAY MORE after the baby is born to.
