Hi,

You being on Aspirin is not a contraindication for breastfeeding. In this particular scenario, it is always better to breastfeed the baby. But I would suggest prothrombin time to be done 2 weeks down the line after you start breastfeeding.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,

i would like to know about poor milk supply. IMy second baby is 2 months today. I have problem with poor milk supply. I started expressing sice day 5 and I am getting approx 10 mls every 3 hourly. Also taking fenugreek, blessed thistle and domperidone. Seen by 3 different lactation consultants. 1A told can be associated with C section and poor latching. When 1A assessed baby and said has some issues with tongue tie (not severe). 2B said 5 % population have poor milk supply, checked both mum and baby. Nil concerns of tongue tie voiced. 3B said (also checked both mom and bubba) I am lacking breast tissue to produce milk.And baby has tongue tie grade 2, laser/ correction not required. Her findings are baby s tongue has dimples and curling at times and sucking is not harder at times and its better to see a speech pathologist. I am totally confused. I dont know what to do. I wanted to breastfeed my baby. Please advice. With my first baby I have had same poor milk supply. But none of them mentioned about breast tissue. Only talking about latching and supplements to boost milk supply.

I was almost 2 weeks late for my period last month, and started get a really itchy boob also I felt the need to always pee but whenever I went to try only a couple drops would come out then 10 seconds later I d feel like I m busting to go again. I was scared that I was pregnant then I got my period so I left it, now my boob is still really itchy I have a big dry flaky patch on the bottom of my nipple and today my whole left boob is covered in a rash! I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend 5 times in the weekend about 2 months ago. I don t know If this has anything to do with it but I did start getting all these symptoms pretty much straight after..

My daughter has been suffering with her bowels pretty much since birth. She was breast fed until 8 weeks then switched onto aptamil 1. when she was about 12 weeks old, her stools turned acidic, green, foul smelling and loose. they are still like this now and she is 10 months old. she was 9lb 20z born and is now about 20lb 10oz. her weight did drop off when the problem started but she is now up to her centile line again. she is now on apatmil 3 3 x 7oz with 3 meals as well. these stools burn her skin and stain her clothes and cause her pain. queried lactose intolerance but nutramigen didnt work so been ruled out.

HI My baby is 6 months old and has 5-6 pus cells , 2-3 RBC and undigested food present. She was mostly breast fed and due to green frothy stool docs said it could be diarrhea but stool culture did not isolate any of the salmonella/ecoli/vibrio species. What could be the cause?
