On Guard Paraguard!!: Think of it this way: the failure rate for a Paraguard IUD is about 0.8%, which means only 8 out of 1000 women using it will become pregnant. Pretty good. The failure rate of other IUDs is a lot more, up to 2%! Having sex on or shortly before/after ovulation will increase the chances of a sperm snagging an ovum, but still, your chances are pretty good of avoiding a pregnancy, but not 100%. ...Read more

Can you tell me if on days I'm off she wants to bottle feed anyone know suggestion to help her get back to breastfeeding when I'm home?

Don't worry too much. If she gets some breast milk, she will still get the benefits. ...Read more

Baby likely OK: If you had a poor diet while breastfeeding, it more likely took its toll on you than on the baby. If the appropriate nutrients are not present while you are producing milk, your body will steal these nutrients out of your body's tissues in order to feed the baby. For instance, it will pull calcium out of your bones to ensure enough calcium in the milk for the infant. You need to get yourself back ...Read more
