Depends. If you are not ovulated most likely yes.But you need to check out with your doctor
Make sure you are comfortable and that the baby is well positioned.If he is newborn, using conveniently placed pillows may help. Dip afacecloth into cold water and rub the nipple on the breast that youare going to offer first, until the nipple stands up. Then, hold the nipple between your fingers...
This is completely normal and nothing to worry about. It simplymeans that your body is getting ready to feed your baby when it isborn. Most pregnant women experience some leakage in their thirdtrimester of pregnancy.
You can, just no more than 4 grams or 4,000 milligrams of it
Ordinary paracetamol or ibuprofen with no other additives areusually OK if you take them in normal doses. If you take narcoticpainkillers such as morphine, it will make your baby too drowsy tofeed properly. There are also quite strong painkillers you can buy without aprescription, but these usually...
I'm sorry but haven't you gotten any education about pregnancy, breastfeeding and babies? EVERYTHING you eat, inhale, drink gets to the baby! If you get high the baby get high. So no, using drugs while breastfeeding so your baby gets high on drugs is not allowed! Also even if you weren't...
No, they are not. In fact, there was a case recently where a mother was being charged with the death of her infant daughter because they found morphine in her breast milk. Even in small amounts, most of these drugs are able to effect the infant because their digestive systems are undeveloped and...
Yes, the immunities that are given to a baby by its mother through breast milk is an important part of keeping a young child healthy. While the nutritional value of breast milk is unsurpassed by mass produced formula, there are many other benefits to breast milk. A short partial list of these...
Simple, if you are not breast feeding all you have to do is to diet, exercise, diet, watch what you eat, and did I mention diet? All this while you are caring for a young child with all the time demands an infant requires. See, losing baby weight is no big problem, that is if you don't mind dieting....
Special Concerns: Effects on lactation are not known. Klonopin C-IV it falls into the Category D by the FDA.
Yes, I hardly ever leaked with my son even in the first weeks. Every woman is different in that aspect.
No, your breasts will not leak at 16 weeks after development. However, you will get an extremely heavy white/yellow discharge.
This could be a sign of pregnancy. You should get a test.
yes you can feed your baby "baby jar food" but not until he/she is atleast 4-6 months old...
Women who just delivered a baby within 14 days produce colostrum.There is no "best" colostrum.
Usually you start by dropping one feeding a week. Start with the one the baby cares least about. I would try the afternoon or evening session. I would like to know how interested you baby is in breastfeeding? or are they enjoying the bonding time? I assume they are eating plenty of normal table...
Yes it is safe; however, it's rumored to cause milk supply reduction. Just don't drink/eat too much and you shouldn't have to worry.
Breastmilk is measured in ounces just like formula is.
Colostrum is the milk that a female mammal produces immediately after the first few hours after giving birth. It contains immunoglobins, antibodies and essential nutrients that are very important for the health and vigor of a newborn.
  It is common to have breast milk leak. It can leak during any point in your pregnancy, but is more common in the end. I was 36 weeks with my first daughter and got my milk in, I also lost my mucos plug. Most sites I found said not to worry as well as my midwife. But my daughter was on her way...
Yes, you can restart your milk supply. It will take a bit of work and dedication, but it can be done. You will have to get yourself a quality breast pump and commit to using it multiple times a day. It will take a few weeks of pumping to remind your breasts that they should be producing milk. Once...
Yes you can. Inducing lactation is not age dependent. Even if a woman is into menopause, lactation can be started. It only takes a desire and a level of dedication and patience to make this happen. Remember, the purpose of breasts is to make milk. That is what they are designed for and with the...
I wouldn't think so because of the drugs in it.Look at the bottle, there should be a warning notice of times you shouldn't take it.
Only if you gave birth to a goat. Just because goat's milk is an unusual thing to drink in our culture, does not make it superior. The best thing for a baby is its mother's breast milk. Goat's milk, cow's milk, or formula is just a substitution. And substitutions are just that poor imitations of...
  For a lactating woman, the current U.S. RDA (recommended daily allowance) of calcium is 1,300 mg. per day.
This fluid is know as colostrum and happens as the body prepares for the birth of your baby.
Yes, that is assuming the stranger is a lactating woman. If a child drinks from a woman who is not its' mother there is no health danger. While breast milk is tailored to meet the specific needs of the child, there is enough good in breast milk to benefit any child who drinks it. This activity is...
Yes this is possible,,with my first child mx nipples were so itchy that while i was scratching i leaked breast milk and at that time i hadnt even missed a period... Evryones body is different u cant always go by d books..........
When trying to dry up the milk supply, there are several ways to stop the pain and swelling or engorgement. You can use alternating hot and cold packs and an over the counter NSAID (non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drug) such as Ibuprofen or Naproxen to reduce the swelling and pain. You can also...
  == Answer ==   Yes you can get your period if you are pumping milk and feeding from anything other than the breast.  Ovulation can also precede your first period, especially if you are more than 6 months post partum. 
Colostrum should NOT be given to adult cattle because they don't need it. There will be no side-effects, but it's just not wise to waste all that colostrum on mature cattle when it should be stored in the freezer and ONLY used on orphaned newborn calves.
when breastfeeding you need to ask a doctor before taking midol for medical reasons
if you pumped today and need it by tomorrow then through it in the fridge! it is perfectly safe and fine that way. As far as reheating do not microwave it! The microwave kills the nutrients and living part of the milk. Put the storage bag or bottle in a cup (or pan) of hot, not boiling water and let...
NO breastfeeding will not cause constipation!
I assume by not satisfying the baby you mean you are questioning if your child is getting enough milk. There are three things to watch. The first is proper breast feeding technique. If you have any question about this, get the counsel of a good lactation consultant. She can help coach you through...
no, it's very usual my husband daily do it and i never discomfort although enjoying very much.
  yes you can eat them UNLESS you are alergic to them:)
no it will poison the baby take a tylenol.THIS IS NONSENSE. IT IS ADVISED BY THE AMERICAN ACADEMY OF PEDIATRICS TO JUST NOT TAKE IT REGULARLY. OF COURSE, THAT IS NOT DEFINED, BUT 200 MG (the standard over-the-counter dose) FOR A FEW DAYS SHOULDN'T BE A PROBLEM. VERY LITTLE PASSES INTO THE BREAST...
Medical studies have shown a fairly clear relationship between breast feeding and a strong reduction in breast cancer. The general number I have read is that if a woman has a cumulative time of 18 to 24 months breast feeding she has a significant lower chance of contracting breast cancer. Once again...
I am sure you and your doctor have explained to him that breast feeding provides superior nutrition for his child and how breast milk also provides other health protection for his child. Another thing you can talk to him about is all the things breast feeding does for you, his wife. While he will...
  yes it is cuz my mom used to drink it when she was breast feeding me and now im 22
No, birds do not breastfeed their young.
  zzzzzzzzzzzAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAPPPPPPPPPP !!!!!
I would not advise it. Whatever goes into your body, comes out through the mothers milk, in turn you're giving your baby whatever is in your body.
A calf should get colostrum within an hour or so after birth. Colostrum in the cow will be produced for the next 24 to 48 hours after the calf is born, but at eat time frame, the quality of the colostrum decreases, which means that if the calf receives its colostrum after 24 hours or more, its...
Yes, whey is completely natural. It is simply a milk by-product. Whey wold be a good choice to help fill you up, being so high in protein and low in fat.
Yes, you can. I was breastfeeding one baby, got pregnant, and then gave birth to another baby. I ended up breastfeeding both of them for several months. It was tiring!! In order to make sure you have enough nutrients for your fetus, breastfed baby, and yourself, you will need to add extra calories...
Nursing your baby for four months is a great start! Good job on doing the right thing so far. The national association of pediatricians recommends that a baby me exclusively breast feed for a minimum of six months. So keep up the good work and keep feeding your child the very best. If breast feeding...
I would strongly recommend that you stay away from using something like these energy pills. They contain a large concentration of caffeine and other stimulants. All of these ingredients will also be quickly passed by your body into your breast milk and then taken in by your child. The last thing you...
Yes, a zebra does "breast feed" after a fashion. Zebras are mammals and therefore, nurse their young just as horses or cattle do.
no it doesn't the gland that produces milk is the mammory gland  (Modified Sebaceous gland)
Do not give you child milk, even if he/she would begin to cry. Keep this up, and your baby will be weaned.
You can start pumping your breastmilk as soon as it comes in. You can even pump right after returning home from the hospital with your baby. The more you pump your breasts, the more milk you will produce. If you know you will be going back to work after maternity leave, you can begin pumping and...
That would depend upon how the question is meant. If it refers to how much milk her mammary glands can produce, then that depends on a variety of factors. Typically, assuming the woman is properly fed and healthy, she will produce enough milk to meet the demand. It is then the baby that is...
If she's lactating, yes.
If a mother can not breastfeed, there are a few options. If you wish to continue with breast milk, you can look into breast milk banks. If you are able to produce breast milk, but can't get baby to latch, you may be able to pump! Check with a lactation nurse! I highly recommend trying to breastfeed,...
Any sort of caffeine can be harmful. Babies don't need extra hype. Plus, Coke is a) not nutritious and b) potentially harmful. Do what you want, but personally I don't want to ingest something that can clean cars and toilets without scrubbing. Or feed it to my baby through me.
Yes, the drug you intake gets into the milk you make and this then affects the baby.
Yes, this is perfectly normal. It just means your body is preparing for the birth and feeding of your child.
It comes from glands in the breast.
Everything you eat goes into the breastmilk so feeding your baby drugs is a major NO! You shouldn't even be around any babies while being high. I assume you are aware of that you can loose custody over something like that (child endangerment).
  Not long after nursing stops; if you develop lumps you may need to manually express. If you get an infection, see a doctor ASAP.
use hand expression on them with a warm flannel to get them going. then take it of and rub gently around the breast with your hands. and finally sqees the nipple and milk should come out.
it is safe to take postinor 2 while breast feedingile breast feeding
As long as the nursing woman does not have any communicable diseases that might be passed along in her breast milk, there is no health concern with nursing a child that is not her own. Cross nursing or wet nursing is a historically used means of child care. Whether this is done to share the burden...
In most of the US there are few public places where it would be illegal to breast feed. However, many businesses do not understand these legalities and have the backward idea that somehow breast feeding is something to be hidden. It is right and proper for a nursing mother to feed her child whenever...
Breast feeding is legally allowed any place a woman may be when her infant is hungry. Some businesses and some officials in charge of public places may feel they can ask women to not breastfeed in their establishment of business or the public location that they control, but legally they cannot...
If a woman expresses her breasts every 3-4 hours in a 24-hour day, expressing each breast for 10-15 minutes each session, even though little or no liquids come from her nipples she will eventually re-lactate and produce as much milk as is needed. If she misses any sessions, she will actually reverse...

Japanese people are not more into breastfeeding than any other  people. Breastfeeding is very popular because it is very healthy  for babies to be breastfed.
why ask what if? when you can be sure and just not.
Answer . \nSometimes during puberty the hormones that tend to be rampant and somewhat imbalanced can cause your breasts to express fluid or even milk. Surprisingly this is very common in adolecent boys! There is no real cause for concern. You may want to wear an extra shirt, a cotton bra or even...
No, but when its full you definitely know!!
  == Answer ==   THERE IS NO SET TIME FOR THIS TO HAPPEN.  EVERYONES BODY DOES THIS AT DIFFERENT TIMES.  SOME LEAK AT 7-8 MONTHS SOME DONT LEAK TILL AFTER BIRTH. SORRY CANT PIN IT DOWN FOR YOU.
A wet nurse. This was a woman who was lactating and would hire herself out to another woman who was unable or unwilling to nurse her own baby and nurse that woman's child.
If by FSA card, you mean Flexible Spending Account card, yes, you should be able to buy a breast pump. It is a medical device and should qualify as a FSA expense. Seeing as your FSA card is attached to your account, you do need to make sure you have enough funds in that account to cover the cost of...
Breast milk production is directly tied to the amount of demand. As long a woman continues to receive adequate nipple stimulation from suckling or pumping she will produce milk.
  The only person who really ought to drink a woman's breast milk is her baby; there isn't any specific reason why others shouldn't except that the mother's milk supply is limited and intended for the baby. There are also some issues of disease or medication when consuming excretions from...
    Yes - but only 2 to 3 meals worth a week.
The amount of time that alcohol stays in your breastmilk varies  because everyone metabolizes alcohol at different rates. Metabolism  depends on amount of alcohol consumed, food intake, etc. Over time  your body will naturally metabolize the alcohol from your system  but the only way to know for...

no its not illegal, so go crazy
Breast milk is wonderful in that it imparts what the mother eats to her nursing baby. This is great when the mother is taking in good food and nutrition. Real bad when she has a disease such as HIV. When a baby nurses from her HIV positive mother there is a very high chance that the baby will...
