Can I induce lactation after a few months of not breastfeeding (i need to take meds)?

Can I induce lactation after a few months of not breastfeeding (i need to take meds)?

Yes: Regular stimulation of the breast, either by the baby or with a breast pump, will eventually restore your milk production.

Can SSRI cause lasting damage in the brain and induce brain fog? I once took them and had very severe withdrawal symptoms.

No: Consider also the reason for being placed on the medication. Perhaps it was for anxiety. Certainly while the medication is in your system there can be cognitive effects, often decreased range of emotions in a dose-dependent way. Withdrawal happens too w/ SSRI's esp. Paxil and Celexa/Lexapro. Once off for several weeks there are no lasting effects. ...Read more

I suspect I have a food borne illness. But I have no fever. And as much as I would like to vomit or use the toilet, neither one of those is happening. It's been about 40 hours since the first symptom of heartburn started. Should I ride it out or induce vo

Food Born Illness: Usually foodborne illnesses hit fairly rapidly. Vomiting is not going to really help you very much. Ride this one out. Probiotics may be helpful as well so pick up some of those at any drugstore and take them twice-daily for a couple of weeks. Things should get back to normal fairly soon. If not see your doctor. ...Read more

Do you think a body is able to do any nightly repair with only 4-5 hours of sleep? Read that Epstein Barr virus can induce cancer. Would a person have to show symptoms of E. Barr or could it be silent and immune system not catch it /still do harm?

Do you think a body is able to do any nightly repair with only 4-5 hours of sleep? Read that Epstein Barr virus can induce cancer. Would a person have to show symptoms of E. Barr or could it be silent and immune system not catch it /still do harm?

Stop worrying: I will leave the question about sleep to others or your own observations. Most people have met Epsrein-Barr and do not have symptoms. It produces a few very rare cancers in healthy folks and some of the distinct quasi-cancers in the immuncompromised. There is a huge amount of scare / rubbish stuff about it online. There is nothing you can do about it, so get on with your life and try to be happy. ...Read more

What are some tricks to help with lactation?

What are some tricks to help with lactation?

Helping lactation: The number one trick is to spend as much time as possible with the baby in your arms, even skin-to-skin. Learning baby's early cues of hunger is important because once they are crying, it's hard to latch. Cluster feeding in the evening hours is normal.
