Re: Large nipples - not able to breastfeed

If I don’t have an older one to look after then yes we can keep going on the supply line on every feed.. and I would also like to admit, I also felt an instant relief when my DH gave the bottle feed last night! I wonder would a mix of bottle and breasts work? I can see DS is improving on his suckle ...

DD got ni...

I have successfully EP my first so I know I can do it, however how do u manage your other kids when you pump? Could you s...

Re: Trying to wean DD off ebm at 21 months

Well done on expressing for so long, that is an amazing achievement! I am no expert at this, but I wonder if at home you are trying to get rid of two things at once, the bottle and the bm. I wonder what would happen if you offered the breast milk in a cup, that is, "weaned" off the bottle first, wh...

Re: What are the reasons to continue

I am in a similar situation as you, my DD is 19 months and every time I thought about stopping, my DD gets sick, she doesn't eat much except ebm so I have a reason to keep going. I had a talk with my husb...

Thank you so much ladies. I think getting in touch with the local ABA group before bub is born is a good plan. How do I go about doing it? Another problem I had at the beginning was I didn't know about ABA, and most of the people around me formula fed their babies so my help only came from my LC, mi...

I am definitely not switching my DD to formula as I know many mums that ebf have healthy children. I guess my concern would be what type of solid do you feed your little one each day to ensure they eat enough iron? I have looked it up and it is mention that child from 12 months needs 7mg of iron.
