I had to share my excitement with some moms who will understand. We're taking a Sept. trip the WDW, and I needed some lightweight tank tops. I was trying to figure out a good system without spending $30 or so on nursing shirts. Well, at Target last night, I found some converse tank tops that snap down the chest and have a piece of fabric that looks like another tank under it. Well that fabric can lift up and there is just enough room to nurse. The only thing I worry about is that the snaps seem a little loose, so I'll let you know how it works out.

My DD is 7 months old and still going strong with BFing. She is however, in LOVE with food I babysit a child that is 9mos and when she takes a bottle DD wont nurse and wants to drink out of her sippy - as soon as the other child goes down for a nap DD will nurse. It's a bit inconvenient but not too bad. I am concerned however that while nursing, I can not take a drink of water without DD wanting to stop nursing to drink water. She just started to cut down on how often she nurses(from 8-9 times a day to 7 times a day) She does eat plenty of solids, but I am worried that she isn't going to get enough nutrition since she is so young. Any advice? Thanks

How nutrition your DD gets is up to you for the most part. If you are really worried about her nutritional intake, just ensure that every bite going into her mouth is good for her.
But I really wouldn't worry too much about it. My DS is almost 9 months and only nurses about 4x a day and he is a chunky 19.5 lbs.
If you seem to get really concerned have her weighed to give you some peace of mind.

Can't wait to hear how they work for you. They look nice.

I hate most nursing tops, so I generally just wear 2 tank tops and hike one top up and one top down. My DH's undershirts are great for this since the neckline area is easier to pull down.

WOW!!!! I cannot believe how much some people can pump. I can spend 20-30 mins on my pump and be very lucky to get 6 oz. Usually 3 or 4 and my DS is 9 mths. I was the same way with my DD. I just have never been a successful pumper, even with me taking domperidone.

Heres another question. My best friend is Cdn but lives in Hawaii and she told me that in the US you can't get a prescription for Domperidone to assist in the production of BM. Is this in all states?

I *think* you can. Back when I was EP'ing some of the girls on our EP forum were using it with scripts from their doctors. I vaguely remember that they had to get it from a special pharmacy though. Maybe a compounding pharmacy? I think it can and has been used for woman to stimulate lactation for woman who have chosen to breastfeed their adopted infants as well.

I remember drinking a particular tea while I was nursing and pumping, it was called MOther's Milk, and I got it at Whole Foods....

I do not need a compounding pharmacy to get my prescription filled. They are pills. It really does help with a low supply or like you suggested for people who are adopting. It brings in twice as much milk as I would normally have.

I have never tried any of the teas as I have had had to use the domperidone for both my children.

But you're in Canada correct? I believe the poster was referring to availibility in the States if I'm not mistaken.

Fenugreek is also a galactogogue that helps with supply issues. Unfortunately, you have to take a lot of it for it to be effective and you can wind up smelling like maple syrup! For me, I couldn't take fenugreek because it upset my tummy. But I knew a lot of fellow EP'ers that used it with great success.

Hi all. I'm jumping on this thread. My family and I are going in December. My DS will be 10 months and hopefully still nursing. He's a great nurser but gets distracted easily. But I know I can work around that by finding some quiet places.

I know this is a dumb question, but how often will he be nursing then? My daughter wouldn't nurse for anything, so even though he's my second child, I'm a newbie at BF'ing.

Thanks.

It's been a while for me, but if I recall correctly it was easily 6X per day if not more.

I was fortunate to be a good pumper... 7-9 oz in 10 min. Funny enough my children never took bottles, but I was a milk donor and that was why I was pumping.

In Oregon they will prescribe Domperidone, so it may be state related. I know a number of women who took it.

There are lots of ways to up your supply if necessary... one I didn't see mentioned was lactation cookies. There are a bunch of different recipes on the web, but that may be something to look into.
