Cold breastmilk

If my baby is given breastmilk straight from the fridge, does the 2 hour rule still apply or can I put it back in the fridge for later if she only has half ?

Breastfeeding question

Does anyone else's babies try to rip their nipples off while breastfeeding? She's 3 months old she doesn't have any teeth but it feels like she's trying to rip my nipple off. She's latch and then she pulls off, she'll latch and then she'll pull off and does it several times.

Newborn getting enough milk

I had my baby girl Tuesday morning at 854 am. She was 6lbs 3oz and I was shocked by how little she was. I am on day 3 of exclusively breastfeeding her. How did you guys know if your baby is getting enough nutrients? She’s had the recommended pee/poop diapers recommended for her age but she constantly wants to be on ...

Breastfeeding

You know what the most heartbreaking thing is when you’ve spent two weeks, bonding with your newborn. Is when your PCP tells you to stop breastfeeding him, because he went from his birth weight 6’2 to 5’10. This is the most I’ve gotten to feed since they didn’t even let, me feed my daughter on the breast for even a...

1 week PP

Hi yall, I just had my baby boy last week. This is my third baby and I’ve had a huge supply with first two. I can see that I’m already making more milk than he is taking. I’ve been pumping 5-10 minutes here and there for relief. Will this cause my supply to stay high? Should I pump before or after he feeds?
