    Wear breastfeeding pads with your nursing bras, after you and baby are in a routine of feeding, the leaking will slow down and eventually won't need to wear them of a day. I found wearing them of a night helped till babies were about 9 months old...

From my experience A nursing bra just has an area or flap that comes down for quick access to breastfeed. They usually do not help with leaks. For that you can get round disposable pads that stick like a menstral pads to the inside of your bra (which are thin and work great cause they are less bulky) or cotton reusable and washable pads that are more obvious but are environmentally conscious. I used the disposable ones when I went out and the washable ones when I was staying around the house. The washable ones can leak if you have a lot of leakage but I never had a leak with the disposable ones. Best wishes!

Yes, definitely it can help out in preventing the milk from leaking out the bras. You just have to make sure that the one you are using should be the quality piece. The one most common bras that I am using it cosabella bras which offers you variety of nursing bras.

Usually nursing bras are enough to protect the clothes from milk leakage. However most women prefer keeping their nursing bras cleaner by wearing breast pads.

Outlet pipe blocked. Descaling not helped.


You may have to clear the hole with some sort of thin probe, if you have a very small drill bit you can use that. You are only drilling out the hardened milk, not increasing the hole size so be careful. In the past I have used gas welding plant tip cleaners so if you know someone with an oxy/acetylene welder they should have a set of tip cleaners. If you have ever watched a barista frothing milk you would see that they ALWAYS blow an extra shot of steam into a damp cloth & wipe the outside of the nozzle after every use for frothing milk. This is to prevent exactly the problem you now have.

One month old baby that had jaundice is now constipaed baby is now nursing


Try adding some fruit juice to your little ones diet. Fruit is a natural Laxative and should help to loosen any nasty hard poopy, and give you and your baby a more mustered yellow colored poopy to deal with that should be nice and soft / loose. (but not so loose that it constitutes the runs that would be an indication of a serious problem and a well timed trip to the pediatrician)

When you say your baby is nursing is s/he nursing from the bottle or breast ? Breast milk also contains a natural laxative which is designed specifically by you, during pregnancy, for your little one to help avoid such problems and improve IQ.

Is it dangerous to wear the wrong size of nursing bras?


Usually a woman's breasts engorge very quickly after giving birth and take a few weeks to gain a stable size, usually one size bigger than what she had before giving birth.
Because of the quick and unpredictable extent of ****** growth some women end up wearing the wrong bra size, and while wearing a bigger size may just turn out to be uncomfortable, wearing a smaller bra size while breastfeeding may reduce their milk supply and cause a painful infections called mastitis.

What is a nursing bra?


Wikipedia suggests that "a nursing bra is a specialized brassiere that provides additional support to women who are lactating and permits comfortable breastfeeding without the need to remove the bra. This is accomplished by specially designed bra cups that include flaps which can be opened with one hand to expose the nipple. The flap is usually held closed with a simple clasp or hook."

Hey Cornelia, poor Sokkies probably just needs some TLC. If the swelling is not discoloured ( like a bruise ) and nipples are not cracked or bloody. The standard remedy for this condition is to use warm, moist cloths to massage the swollen tissue 4-5 times a day to help with the inflammation and make her more comfortable while time helps to resolve the problem by stopping the production of milk. However if she has a fever or any of the above mentioned symptoms, please see y

Hi, Babies who are taking to solids normally should not be on formula after a year. The nurses were right, but I understand your anxiety in trusting them. I am however, a mother of almost 10 babies! No one stayed on formula past a year. My paternal grandmother (retired dir. of nursing) and my maternal grandmother(greatest mother on earth) agree! You may want to start week by week adding 2oz of cow or almond milk (whatever you drink-just not skim) to the formula she is already drinking just to keep an eye on allergies and to ease her little belly into reg. milk until she is taking 100% milk.

Not spinning fast enough. Spins, but not as fast as it should, so clothes are still too wet to put in dryer.


I am going to assume this is a top load washer since you didn't specify. There are only a few causes. One would be having too many clothes and it is overloaded causing the clutch to struggle. Or the clutch could be worn out. If there is any water left in the bottom of the tub, then there may be a partial clog in the pump, or hoses somewhere taking too long to pump out the water. The motor may also be weak, but that is usually not the case. Sometimes the top oil seal in the transmission leaks and slings some oil onto the clutch pads making them slip and thus never get up to the proper spin speed.
Take half the clothes out and see if it spins fast enough. If it does, reduce your load size somewhat. If not, read on.
Unplug the machine and disconnect the hoses. Pull it out and tilt it back. Look up underneath to see if there is any signs of oil leaking. If so, the transmission oil seal needs replaced along with the clutch pads. If not, then if you have access to a Wet/dry shop vac, **** the water out of the drain hose. Lay the washer on it's back and remove both hoses from the pump to see if there is anything blocking the water passages. Something small, like a bra wire, can sling over the inner tub and get lodged in the pump inlet. That in itself is not bad but over time lint will collect around it. I have seen all kinds of things choke off the pump including small socks, rug stringies, coins, jewelry chains, etc.

I purchased a unit second hand for my wife's birthday today. It's only 4 months old, got it home, tested it, same problem... No froth!

I've read all the posts here and all were very helpful troubleshooting guides however they did not solve the issue.

Understanding how the frothing mechanism functions is half the battle in figuring out the solution. It's a simple vacuum type system. No doubt you've read about checking the orings. This is definately the first thing to check however if this is not the reason then consider the following.

The larger of the white tubes that has the red and black oring inserts deep into its port on the tap. Why? It pushes steam past the milk pipe directly into the chrome frothing tube which causes a vacuum essentially drawing milk up it's hose creating the froth. What you can't see without further investigation is that on the underside of the tube centered between the red and black orings is a small hole. This hole is responsible for drawing the milk upwards. If this is blocked, and it probably is then no milk and no froth. Use a really small screwdriver to carefully clean the white tube both from the front and the little hole underneath.

So in conclusion. Any air leak between the red and black orings will prevent the vacuum required to draw milk up the tube and alternatively any blockage of the milk channel will also obviously prevent the flow into the frothing mechanism. Hope this helps.
