LilGem replied to topic It could only happen to me (bit of a rant sorry)

LilGem replied to topic Breastfeeding beyond 12 months?

It isn't super common, but I wouldn't call it unusual either at that age (and definitely not unusual physiologically), I think it becomes significantly less common as you approach 2 in Au...

LilGem replied to topic Best breast pump to buy?

I have a swing too from when I returned to work PT with DD1 (and it is a great pump), but would suggest not buying a pump until the baby is here and you find a need to pump. DD2 was born prem, so I...

LilGem replied to topic Exclusive pumping. How much milk do you get?

I would try one of the herbal galactogogues in the mean time (fenugreek, blessed thistle etc), and if you are making the cookies yourself, try the raw dough, it is more effective that way . I would...
