Burning Breasts: no longer feeding

I finished Bfing 12 months ago after 8 years (3 kids) non-stop. Over the weekend I had gastro. When I was vomiting, I had had really painful burning/stinging sensations in both breasts, shooting down through my nipples and my breasts were red - almost like my breasts were being flooded with blood. I...

Counsellors on the Darling Downs?

How Quickly Can I Train?

Ok, so I've managed to pick up training again and am on my way, yay! Am currently working on huge unit, Provide Breastfeeding Info & Support. I'm now imagining that if I maintain my momentum, I should definitely have this finished far earlier than the two years I've currently been enrolled :oops: Ho...

Cold sores on the breast

Just wondering if anyone has experienced/is willing to share knowledge of cold sores/herpes virus on the breast? What were your symptoms? Did the lesion appear as a normal oral cold sore? How did it impact feeding? It's possible that DD has a cold sore, and she's still feeding (I get cold sores - de...

How do I resume training?

I enrolled 2 years ago and am still currently enrolled (due to expire in December - will be re-enrolling). However, in that time, I have only completed two units - Promote and Represent and Communicate Using Tech (in September last year). So I'm keen to pick it up again, but I just don't know where ...

How did you train?

I'm interested in the logistics of how you trained, ie, mornings/evenings; mostly by self/training meetings/online; just an hour here or there or big blocks of time that were timetabled in etc etc. I'm coming up to entering my third year as a trainee. I have only completed two units :oops: Bub #3 is...

Your Local ABA Group

Very simply, what do you love about your local ABA group? What makes your group work? What could your group do differently to be better? Does your group attract new mums? Do they return? What is it about your group that makes them return?

Can't wait to hear your experiences :)

Please help-I'm at a loss on how to approach this :(

Ok, so will try to articulate this as best (and as briefly) as I can: DD, 3yrs 4 months. Older sister to 19 month DS. Of late seems to have become very insecure. A week ago went through some serious raging (lashing out at me), we think in response to me not being in bed one night when she woke (bed ...

I know this is late, but I read somewhere that it's actually beneficial for the well child to feed from the same side/feed from an 'unwiped' breast as they will receive the antibodies your body starts to produce once you are exposed to the viral infection (via the breast) from your unwell child, if ...

When you've night weaned...

...what have you done when your LO has been sick? Have you gone back to letting them feed through the night for that time, then night wean over again? I'm really thinking about night weaning my DD3yo and DS 16month yo. I'm still impatiently waiting for my menstrual cycle to return and have read that...
