Re: Colostrum shocker (come get a laugh if you need one)

What kind of pads do you recommend? The ones I've got are reusable from target, and it's totally obvious I'm wearing them. They itch like crazy too (been practicing wearing them, lol). They don't seem very absorbant either...

Re: Colostrum shocker (come get a laugh if you need one)

I had to have something with PUL or windpro on them.. I leaked like crazy in the beginning. Around the house I use ones from Cottonmama.com with the waterproof barrier (they're pretty cheap).

I was also known to just shove a preemie prefold lengthwise into a sportsbra.

But for going out no cloth was undetectable. The best for going out for me was/is Lansinoh. Hands down.

I've got lanisoh pads/wipes (thingys), and the tube (thingy). Haven't opened either yet...they're sitting right here.

The preemie prefold sounds like something I'd do! (and probably will do. thanks for the tip )

The pads are the best. The wipes: overrated (I'd take my cloth wipes anyday... sposie wipes are too thin.. I feel like i get poo on me!... and in the beginning DH would use 8-10 sposie wipes on one poo. Yeesh.).

I use my lanolin (the Lansinoh brand) for my few pieces of wool. I used it once or twice because Sam had a bad latch--man, did I bleed. Yikes.

We have 2 packages of sposie wipes, but I've got a nice collection of cloth wipes.

On that note, what do you use for a wipe solution? I'm thinking that's something I can do in early labor is make a batch...but what batch? There are so many recipes! I need to gather ingredients tomorrow.

And ouch to a bad latch! How do you remedy that? Go see a lactation consultant?

Re: Colostrum shocker (come get a laugh if you need one)

Just jumping in here on that last question, Allison. YES, use or see or hire or BEG a lactation consultant to help you out in the beginning to get a good latch from the start! It will be worth it!

I had to have an LC spend almost an entire day in the hospital with us teaching me how to teach Margo to latch correctly and to find positions that would be best for us - and it worked! Despite the fact that Margo is a *major* boob addict, I have had zero cracking, zero pain, zero discomfort - aside from a few instances of simple friction ache after some longer nursing sessions If she starts off latched wrong, I pop her off and we try again - and again and again if needed.

My most serious advice: DON'T settle for an okay latch if it has taken a bit to get her on and she was fussy - good latch is the key to everything wonderful about nursing! Bad latch brings only suffering!

Now go have that baby already!
