    Question Yet Another ?

    Advertisements
    I am pretty scared about BFing but I really want to try.
    I don't understand anything about it since I have never tried before.
    Will your tatas pour milk if you are ready to BF and the baby is sleeping or doesn't want any?
    When you start feeding them cereal and solids later on and are still BFing how does that work? Do you feed them the solids and BF after?
    How often do you BF?
    Im sorry Im so confused and ask weird questions!

    1) sometimes at first....but you wear pads. after a few months or so, your supply will regulate and that won't happen as much. i still have to wear pads though.

    2) same time as normal....well, when a baby first starts eating solids if they are FF, you still give them formula.... so the same goes for BF.

    3) on demand sometimes, at first, that's seemingly all day every day... LOL.

    alot of your questions are answered at babycenter.com. Usually when you start bf, you dont "pour" milk. Sometimes leaking occurs, but thats what breast pads are for. once solids are started, I usually offered food, then breast. I think, during the first year (or 6 months) the main nutrition should come from breast or formula, and solids are just "training". go to babycenter.com. seriously, they answer EVERY question imaginable.
    We wont buy, while cats and dogs die.

    YUM...

    You'll leak until your BBs regulate themselves. They're be on your baby's schedule.

    I BF on demand, when Z wants mama's milk, she gets mama's milk!

    I always offer her BM before any of her solids. So right now she's getting her breakfast, lunch, dinner & still nurses around 10 times during the day.

    yup. ellie just started on "real" solids (ie fruits, veggies) but she still only gets those at school for meals (doesn't like bottles much) and at home she gets nothing but boob, except on the weekends

    It depends, sometimes she'll just be on for a quick 3 minutes and sometimes she'll nurse for 20 min.

    Thanks Steph!
    I was talking to Paul(exDH) his wife yesterday and watching her do it and she made me feel so good about it. She says at first it will hurt and then it will regulate and you will be so happy you stuck it out. I was young and scared with Jerron and didn't even try and now I think I would really regret not giving BFing my all!
