Hey moms, I need help. My son is turning 1 this Sunday (on the 13th) and he has 8 teeth already. I’m trying to get him off the boob but he’s a fighter and doesn’t want to get off. Any suggestion moms
I just weaned my 14 month old daughter and my breasts are so full and sore! When will my milk dry up? What can I do dry it up faster.
My MIL keeps saying low key remarks about me not wanting to breastfeed my twins this winter.... I’m perfectly content in my choice and it mostly just irritates me that she isn’t, I’m not going to change my mind. Anyways- just wanted to say.... if you don’t want to breastfeed, then don’t and you’re still a bada$$ mom.
Expected my third period since ending breastfeeding. I’m a few days late. At what point should I expect my periods to normalize? I had been very regular prior to having my son 6 months ago. I’m wondering if I should be expecting weirdness with my period, or if I should be buying a pregnancy test?
I’m a first time mom, my baby just turned 2 months and I’ve had trouble BF from the start. He gets a good latch because I can hear him gulping and my breasts feel empty after feeding but my nipples are on fire. I started pumping and bottle feeding him to give myself relief. I can only nurse him once maybe twice a day. I’ve tried lanolin nipple cream, coconut oil, aloe Vera. Nothing eases the pa... More
Background - My wife just gave birth a couple days ago. Our 4th child, she is 44, never had an issue with the others. Thanks
Anybody have any recommendations for a basic skin care routine that is breastfeeding friendly? I have pretty normal/maybe slightly sensitive skin. I’ve never had bad acne but will get the occasional zit. I’ve never had a skin care routine but am starting to notice some wrinkles and I know this is something I need to get started on. I’m specifically looking for a general cleanser, toner, moistur... More
She is on breastfeed, I am too scared because of this, when I approached her doctor, he gave one medicine (zentac), but I want to avoid medicine in such early age. Please suggest some good natural way to get rid of this.
I can only produce one ounce of breast milk per pump so I add some formula to the same bottle to feed my 1 week old. I feed her at 45 degree angle and make sure there’s enough in the bottle . It seems she makes the squeaking gulping noises so I’m worried she takes in a lot of air- and she gulps down super fast. I hope that’s normal?? She seems super hungry and can gulp down 1.5 oz in 10 mins... More
My baby girl just turned 7 months last week. I am trying to feed her solids like oat/ rice cereal and also introduced variety of fruits and vegetables but she is not at all showing interest to eat and she is not opening her mouth. And also she is only on breastmilk. Not taking formula too. I am scared that what if my milk supply gets low how she can survive? Please suggest me tips/ tricks in... More
My baby is only six days old but i figured to try and see how she'd take to the pacifier, as a test. It went too well - now it's hard to take it away. Anything else sets her into a hissy fit. Any suggestions or folks with similar situations? I understand this is far too young to start this habit :(
Can mastitis go away on its own? I’m not sure if I even have it... I woke up yesterday and my breast felt bruised. Today there is a red coloring and a large lump under. I’m still able to nurse/pump, and it isn’t super painful. I’m not sure if I should go in to the doctor to avoid it getting worse... or just ride it out n see if it’ll go away on its own?
I was induced so that I could have my baby early due to my SO being diagnosed with cancer. I wanted to make sure that he was there for the delivery of our baby girl. But my milk supply hasn’t produced much yet and my baby girl isn’t eating a lot. Is there anything I can take or eat so that I can produce more milk?
