Breastfeeding Support Group

While breastfeeding is recommended by many doctors, it is not as simple as it seems. This is a community dedicated to parents who are choosing to breastfeed, providing a safe place to discuss everything from pumping, to questions of whether baby is getting enough, weaning, breast care, scheduling, supply, and more.

I am now home with my two week old and I feel like I am at my wits end and suddenly have a different outlook. I truly thought I would enjoy breastfeeding more than I do and it breaks my heart to feel like it's not for me. The more the days pass I consider exclusively pumping just so...

    Should public places have breastfeeding room

    1
    I would love to know people's take on having public places has rooms for breastfeeding mothers. I recently went to a mall in my neighborhood and they have a seperate breastfeeding room in the bathroom that has a chair and changign table. I got to nurse my baby in privacy and she and I both were comfortable. It was great! I think other places should follow suit. Does anyone agree??

    Hey Ladies,Have any of you ever used a supplement to increase your milk supply? and did it work? I have had a blocked duct for a day and a half in my right breast, and a very sore bleeding nipple on my left breast, so I have been taking a break from pumping and nursing to let myself heal. My husband helped me get the duct unblocked, and my other nipple is on the mend, so I tried pumping, but I...
