I had a baby and december and have recently stopped nursing and started birth control again. How long should I wait before intercourse?
A week: Birth control pills can take as long as a week to reach full efficacy, though if you have been nursing, you have probably not been ovulating either. It would be fine to start now, but in an abundance of caution, waiting a week or using alternate contraception would be reasonable. ...Read more

My friend is nursing her 7 month old since birth, is the baby safe from a sibling having chickenpox?
Do Not rely on That: Although the baby definitely gets an immunity boost from nursing, it is not a 100% guarantee for protection from specific infections. Thus one should minimize exposure, use good handwashing etc. Also keep in mind, if the nursing mom has not had a varicella (chicken pox) infection, she has no immune factors to pass thru the breast milk to the baby. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A few days: It's so painful, isn't it? Best is anti-inflammatory like ibuprofen to help with the cramping. 600-800mg every 6-8 hours will help a lot. But each time uterus cramps, the uterus is also shrinking in size, so at some point the uterus will be back to its original size and the cramping will cease. I'm sorry you're going through this, but it will get better in a few days. ...Read more
Dear Dr my baby is 9 months old eating solid foods still nursing him can i pump out milk and give him.Baby date of birth is 24th feb 2014?
Yes: Pumped breast milk will be fine. It is not quite as convenient but has the same nutrition. Pumping is not as good as sucking at stimulating breast milk. He may not want to take it from a bottle but maybe a cup if he is used to your nipple. All the best and congratulations on wanting to continue breast feeding! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
