I am looking for advice. I am the mom of a 15 month old son who I continue to nurse and we both continue to enjoy it. My concern/question is if I should be supplementing my breast milk with any whole milk?
My son is a fairly good eater of solid foods - I try make sure he eats a "balanced diet" fruits, veggies, grains, protein, etc. and besides breast milk he drinks water. But because I nurse him I don't know how much milk he is really getting and I wonder if I should be offering him any whole milk (organic, of course)?

ShelleyRN THANK YOU!
I am very much hoping that going back to work and putting him in day care will change a lot. I do remember that my daughter was exhausted after a day at day care, and slept a long time afterwards, especially for the first few weeks when she was getting used to such a busy day.

For the moms talking about breastfeeding in public, I have to say I applaud every single mother out there who breastfeeds in public. We know it's law that we're allowed to, but somehow it's still so hard, because it really isn't well accepted. You never know if people are staring at you because they think it's gross, or weird or because they admire you or because they're wondering how you do it so discretely and maybe they could too if they could only figure it out...or the opposite.

I completely sympathize and do wish there was a better acceptance because it should not ever be something we're ashamed of, and yet, for some reason because of our society, it ends up being that we are most of the time...or are worried about what everyone thinks. It's so unfortunate. Keep it up ladies!!

Does anyone have advice? I am a mother of 2 and nursing my second son now who is 3 months....

Does anyone have advice? I am a mother of 2 and nursing my second son now who is 3 months. He is a strong sucker, but detaches himself very frequently. I am experiencing quite a bit of nipple pain while he eats and residual breast pain after. I did not have this problem with my first son, but he was not a good eater. I am back to work and pumping during the day and nursing at night. Is there anything I can do to help with the pain? I think that he may not be taking enough of the nipple in his mouth, but I have not been able to correct the problem. Thank you.

I am in complete agreement with Genevieve, most breastfeeding tops are too short and unshapely, even Motherwear. It's very frustrating to me because although I am very conscious about showing my now scarred middriff from a tramatic c-section, I do want to show off my nice thin shape breastfeeding has helped me to have. I would also like to see public places cater to bf mothers more. You all have some great advice and comments! This blog is great.

Sweet! What a sense of comraderie I get from seeing all the of the Full Time Working Pumping Moms. I am 26 and have a 21 month old and a 1 week old, both boys. I breastfed/pumped for my first 9 months until he self weaned (stinker!) I just love the Medela Pumping-Free kit too, and nothing beats the relaxation you get at work after pumping. I plan to have 3-4 kids and will return to work full time in mid November. I am a nurse so thankfully my wokr environment is very supportive of breastfeeding. My 1 week old nurses like a champ, what a relief compared to my fussy first.

To the working moms, thanks for the encouragement! I've been working since my daughter was 9 weeks old (she is now 15 weeks) Working and pumping - and being away from her for that long - is a struggle, especially when she sometimes poses a brief "nursing strike" at me when I get home or on the weekends. Those are a little tough on both of us but I refuse to give up...

To the mom struggling with the 10 week old that still only sleeps 3 hours, my girl turned a corner quick right when I went back to work and started sleeping 10 hours a night! The key was a bottle (w/ b-milk) or nursing her at around 10:30 or 11pm even though she is asleep, she still latches on and does the "dream feed" which really helps b/c you can actually function the next day at work :)

Hi to all! And kudos to all who have breastfed their children, regardless of how long it lasted...It really is the best start we can give our children! And it can be far from the most easy & carefree experience, as I realized. However, as difficult as it was, it remains the most rewarding experience of my life, aside from bringing life in to the world.
I am the proud mommy to Brenna & Maya, 16 month old identical twin girls. They were born 6 weeks early, and because of their prematurity had to be taken right to the NICU for evaluation. I had a C-section, and instead of being brought to the NICU to see them, for some reason (???) I was brought right back to my room. I didn't get to see/hold my babies for about 13 hours after delivery. Although I had told nurses when I was admitted that my intention was to breastfeed, for some reason (?) they were given bottles that whole 1st day & then some. I didn't even try to nurse them until they were 2 days old (although I was pumping), and then had many obstacles...including flat nipples (nothing like a bottle nipple that they had gotten used to), and therefore, very fussy babies when they couldn't latch & the milk didn't instantly flow like a bottle...and therefore a very stressed out mom because of all of the above. I worked a lot with the lactation consultants, who were great!!! They started me using nipple shields, which really helped the problem of flat nipples. I would have to say I struggled for the 1st 6-8 weeks, before the 3 of us really got a handle on it. For the 1st 3-4 months, I pumped after every feeding because I had a low milk supply & was supplementing with formula. It was a very difficult time and I seemed to be crying all the time because I couldn't understand why something so natural, so basic...could be so difficult! But I was determined, more so than I realized.
By 9 weeks of age, we were breastfeeding pretty much exclusively, tandem for every feeding! It was so gratifying & rewarding to have reached that point. I returned to work part time when the girls were 19 weeks old. Pumping was certainly a chore at work (I am a nurse and finding time was difficult) and the fact that the most I could ever express was 4 oz. (the baby apparently gets more milk out than a pump) but I am so happy I put the effort into it. I, also, had a problem with low milk supply & my obstetrician prescribed a medication for me (Reglan) which really helped to increase my supply.
I took such an interest in breastfeeding & helping others with it, that now, in my job as a pediatric nurse, I help moms all the time and am actually attending a class in October to become a Certified Lactation Counselor...and who knows, maybe one day a Certified Lactation Consultant.
I happily nursed my girls until they were 13 months old (nipple shields and all), when they pretty much weaned themselves. As many obstacles as I faced, it, as I said before was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life & when I have another child, I will most definitely plan to nurse again!
It is so nice to have this blog & I plan to visit it regularly...and I agree with all that Motherwear nursing tops were the only things I wore...

Hi all. I am 26 and have a 6 year old and a 5 month old. I didn't breastfeed w/ my first because I was told that it wasn't the thing to do. With my 2nd, I was determined. After recieving a lot of grief from everyone during and after my pregnancy, I am still exclusively breastfeeding. My child is a lot healthier than my 1st. I work full time, so I have to pump. Many thinks to the Ameda Purely Yours breast pump. I use the Adiri nursing bottles. They are shaped like a breast and my daughter has never had a problem taking them. She looks at you like you are crazy if you offer any other type of bottle. Breastfeeding is a pain when you are working full time and hard in the beginning to get started, but it's worth it. My daughter and I have a special bond that no one else has with her. Her father actually gets to spend more time with her than I do because of our work schedules, but when she sees me, her eyes light up because I have what she has been waiting for all day. I would like to say for anyone having problems, keep it up... It gets better. As for nursing shirts, I have on a Motherwear shirt right now, in the office. Its easier to pump wearing a nursing shirt!

I am the mother of two a daughter who is 4 1/2 and a 15 month old boy. Both were and are breast fed. My daughter nursed until she was 19 months old, and I needed to have my gall bladder removed. While I was in the hospital she had no problems with not nursing and did not look for it when I got home. My son still nurses, just once or twice a day and at night. I will probally continue to nurse him until he weans himself.

Reading some of the other comments I wanted to reply to some of them. I have never been shy about nursing in public. Nursing tops are great, but I also bought cheap camiole tops at Walmart and wear them tucked in under regular shirts and stretch the top down along with my bra flap. They are longer, so easy to tuck in. I think as long as not too much skin is showing a nursing baby does not look much more different than a baby just being held by his mom. Coming from a family of nursing moms I was brought up around it. My aunt liked shoe departments in stores becuase they usually have chairs. I find booths at restraunts easy places to nurse.

As for baby's not sleeping for more than a few hours at a stretch, my daughter was three before she slept through the night and my son still wakes several times during the night. With my daughter I would sit in the rocking chair in her room when she woke during the night. My husband was overseas for most of my son's first year and I just brought him into bed with me. Much easier as eventually I was able to stay mostly asleep when he would want to nurse then go back to sleep.

For those moms worried about the amount of milk the baby is getting, frequent nursing will help build supply, as well as making sure you are drinking enough. One way to do this is have a glass of water on hand when nuring and drink then. As long as your baby has wet, and messy diapers and is gaining weight, they are getting enough milk. Neither of my children gained an ounce until they were a month old then both took off and have not slowed down. With my daughter I gave in to doctors pressure to supplement, but my Aunt who is a lactation consultant sent me a pump. Second time around the doctor trusted me that this just might be the norm for my children and let me just keep nursing. The first few months is seems like I spent all of my time nursing, but I have two beautiful healthy children.

I am the mother of a beautiful 6 1/2 month old girl. She is my first and I really enjoy breastfeeding. I feel it has created a wonderful bond between us. I will say the first month of near constant nursing was rough but once we both got used to it, it was wonderful. I went back to work part time and I pump 3 times a day when I'm working. We started adding baby food to her diet at about 5 1/2 months old and now she is eating two solid meals a day in addition to breastfeeding and it's been really nice to let daddy have some meal times!

I also hope that breastfeeding in public will become a more accepted practice. I recently discoved that my local mall has a seperate family "room" with a TV for older kids and private curtained areas for nursing moms and a family restroom stall. It's great! I wish more places would offer these areas.

I have a question for all of those moms who've nursed past the first birthday, how often would you offer the breast as a meal? And, how long did you nurse for?

I miss the store in town so I can try on the bras. I've found the nursing shirts are too short for those of us with longer torsos (not that I'm hideously proportioned) so that my midrif gets exposed very easily. It'd be nice if the shirts were a little more fitted too to show off our new shapely figures!

Hello!

I am the mother of a 13 month old daughter (who was breastfed for 6 months) and expecting a son in November.

I come from Canada, and found that all shopping centers in my region had nice areas for mother to breastfeed. Mostly they were located in a customer service area (where you could rent strollers, etc.) or they were located near the bathrooms, but in a separate room (which usually were very nice).

I am now living in USA and I am wondering where will I breastfeed my son. I see that most places do not even have changing tables in bathrooms, even less a special area for mother to nurse!

I am under the impression that nursing will be more challenging here because less accepted. I do hope that I will find ways to make it enjoyable anyways if I need to nurse in public.

Looking forward to read all the comments/issues/solutions on breastfeeding in this new blog!

I am heading back to work in two weeks and trying to wean my son to bottles and to get him to sleep through the night. He will take a bottle only as a last resort, but at least he will take it. My greater concern is that he has not slept for more than 3 hours straight and he's almost 10 weeks old. Is there anything I can do to help him learn to sleep for longer blocks at night?

Great site! Currently nursing 4 month old son and pumping at work, nursed first child until 2 years 2 months...

Great site! Currently nursing 4 month old son and pumping at work, nursed first child until 2 years 2 months (second trimester of pregnancy). Quite different experiences, many due to experience, maybe due to differences in the children, both fulfilling and strongly encourage first-timers to tough out the pain you may feel (which felt like being tweeked with clothespins with every let-down until the first was about 4 months, painless with the second) and to encourage working moms to pump, pump, pump! Being able to nurse at night helped me reconnect with the first despite 10-14 hour workdays and "attachment" parenting methods can work even if you can't be around that much in the beginning.
Also, I'd like to pass on that I think frequent pumping may help increase milk supply. I pumped at work for the first starting at 7 weeks every 3 hours and that worked great. For the second, I work 1 week out of 3 so I only pump that week and it helps increase my production as he goes longer between feeds during the 2 weeks I'm home it seems like I produce less especially by late afternoon/evening. Also, first baby seemed really colickly and I eliminated almost EVERYTHING from my diet. In retrospect, she fed about every 2-3 hours and I think she was getting too much foremilk and not enough hindmilk, the foremilk is more milk sugar-rich (which is a problem for those of us lactose intolerant) rather than the hindmilk being more fat-rich (which keeps baby fuller longer). With the second baby, I tried to not feed him at the first fuss and gradually increased the time between feedings and he did much, much better, but maybe he would've done OK anyway.
Finally, I was able to nurse the first immediately after birth and she had some trouble learning, but was separated from the second for 5 hours after birth, yet he latched on and never had one second of difficulty...go figure, everyone is unique!
p.s. Motherwear designs have never let me down, especially for public nursing-even the swimsuits!!!

It's so wonderful to hear all the stories! I have 3 little cuties, boy 5 yrs., girl 3 yrs., and boy 5 months. I nursed all three. My girl was the hardest because we have found out later that she has severe acid reflux and a genetic mutation that has caused global problems for her. She will be entering a special ed preschool and responds well to therapy. Anyway, my last little guy is the best nurser of them all! He loves to nurse and I love nursing him!
I wanted to comment to some of the moms out there that have written about not producing enough milk, try to drink more water. Usually the amount of water you drink directly affects how much milk you produce. Also a book that was extremly helpful to me when I had nursing questions was the "Nursing Mothers Companion".
Hope this helps!

Does anyone have advice? I am a mother of 2 and nursing my second son now who is 3 months. He is a strong sucker, but detaches himself very frequently. I am experiencing quite a bit of nipple pain while he eats and residule breast pain after. I did not have this problem with my first son, but he was not a good eater. I am back to work and pumping during the day and nursing at night. Is there anything I can do to help with the pain. I think that he may not be taking enough of the nipple in his mouth, but I have not been able to correct the problem. Thank you.

Hi guys;

Isn't it incredible that we can grow an entire human being, as well as make all the food it needs just with our own bodies?

I'm a mom of three and currently nursing my 6 week old. I nursed my first until 2 1/2, but the stress of trying to work and pump (plus some ill-advised supplementation) put paid to nursing my second much past 8 months (that and the biting). I'll be nursing my newborn for as long as she wants it - it is our special time when I can put aside everything else and concentrate on her.

Some of you had questions regarding the amount you could pump. I could never pump very much (4 oz tops), whereas my friend could get 16 oz at a time. Babies will get more directly from the breast than a pump can, so if your child is growing adequately, you are making enough milk. The best way to increase your supply is to nurse (or pump) more often, and not to supplement with formula. We should have faith that our bodies are miraculous and that WE CAN DO THIS! I found the La Leche League a wonderful source of support and excellent knowledge. I feel that if the group I'd attended the first time around had still been going when I had my son, I'd have overcome the obstacles I faced with him. Hopefully, the third time will be a charm as I'm so much less stressed by everything (except for weekends alone with three kids, but that's another story...)

Best of luck out there.

Hi everyone,

I've been nursing my baby, Marlo, since he was born, 4 months ago. I live in Mexico where the lactation consultants are few and far between.

Fortunately, Tanya has been a friend of mine for many years so, when the questions and doubts began (day one!) I knew who to call. She has been an incredible source of information and encouragement during these past months. She is tremendously supportive, knowledgeable and positive. She's made this whole new adventure seem a lot more manageable.

I particularly love when she reminds me that I am "growing" my baby. It helps put all the doubt and fatigue in perspective. My boy is a healthy, chubby little fellow. And my milk's made him that way.

I've been so grateful to have Tanya a phone call or email away. And now I'm so happy that many many more women can enjoy her support and learn from her wisdom. A blog written by Tanya about breast feeding is a true gift. I look forward to reading every installment!

Hi, everyone.

My daughter is 21 months and still nursing three times a day.
Needless to say, breastfeeding has been a wonderful experience for both of us, and I'm in no rush to stop.

I think everyone I know (except my husband, who is v. supportive) thinks I'm either crazy or heroic, or both.

I'd love to hear from other moms who've breastfed their babies well into toddlerhood. I plan on letting my daughter wean herself, but wondering how that happens.

Will I be nursing a kindergartener, as some of my friends fear? : )

Also, I'd be happy to share my perspective with anyone who needs it. Here's some background:

After I exhausted my FMLA, I went back to work full-time and pumped, while my husband took a month of FMLA. Then, I went to part-time, working two days a week, and continued pumping until my baby was about a year old. (By then, she refused to take a bottle of breast milk, preferring the breast itself, so there was no point in pumping).
I thought she was beginning to wean, but then she caught her first virus/cold at 15 months (great immune system, thanks to breastfeeding!) and, for two days, breast milk was the only food she could keep down. That increased her interest in nursing -- she was back to eight times a day! -- until we vacationed with friends in August, and she scaled back to thrice a day, the current pattern.

Oh -- this is my first baby. I was 38+ when she was born, and I'm now 40. (Egads...).

I am so happy to see all the breastfeeding moms out there! Most of my fellow co-workers were so negative to me about pumping at work I had to go to my manager and human resources. Surprisingly they were VERY supportive. The people I work with still aren't nice (and I only work 1 day per week), but at least I have management on my side. So if you are having pumping issues at work, I encourage you to talk to someone about it.

I'm nursing my nearly 5month old right now (literally) and struggled through the early (6-8wk) period for both her and her older brother (now 3, self-weaned at 16months). Keep at it is the best thing to say to a new nursing mom. It DOES get better. I had supply issues with both, due to (1st one) weak sucking & (2nd) incorrect latch- and a determination to keep it. My 1st ended up having a couple of supplemental bottles (2 oz)/day (I started by using the supplemental nurser at the breast) the whole first year, but with this one I managed to stop after 2 months.

What has really helped is trained support, using a hospital-grade pump to increase supply (and now for bottles if I need to go out), and KNOWING that no matter what, trying (even if unsuccessfully- that acceptance from my midwife REALLY helped at the 6wk post-partum appointment) was the best thing I could do as a mother.

I never imagined what an amazing experience nursing would be! I am exclusively breastfeeding my eight month old baby boy, and I don't plan on stopping for awhile. Breastfeeding was such a technical process at first, but now it is so easy! I can feed my son anytime, anywhere, in any position! A supply of nursing clothes definitely helps!

Love this blog....Love nursing....nursing my third child who is 9 months. I have been either nursing or pregnant for 6 years straight. My first I nursed thru 22 months when she weaned herself. I delivered her brother 2 months later. I nursed my son until he was 28 months and I delivered my 3rd, daughter, 5 months later.
For the person commenting on stores not having a place to sit and nurse....I often nursed my babies in the fitting rooms in several stores. Though you sometimes get stuck and have to do it in a bathroom....why would you want to sit on a filthy chair in a public restroom and nurse? Would you eat in there? The general population does not understand nor do they cater to the nursing population. How sad.

I recently was issued a jury duty notice and am pleased to report I was granted an excusal on the basis that I am nursing my 9 month old!! Yippee...we've come a long way!

Hi, I am a mom of 5. One stepson, a nine year old boy 19 month old twin boys and a five month old daughter who I am exclusively breastfeeding. She is the only one I have succesfully nursed and it is wonderful! I hope this blog will encourage mothers everywhere to breastfeed. It's the best thing for our children!
