Dear Fitness Expert,
I did fine during pregnancy. I kept jogging until about the last 7 weeks. Then I walked. I assumed I could just pick up again once the baby was here. I have the okay from the doctor to start jogging again, but here's the problem. I'm breastfeeding and my boobs HURT when I run.

What can I do to lessen the pain? I am really looking forward to being on the go again.

Ideas For Introducing Soya Milk?

Dear Lactation Consultant,
Hi. Coral has started this strange thing while nursing. It just started a month ago and I am not sure if it's do to the heat or she is just too busy now. I will lay her on her side in my lap to nurse and she wiggles off and stands at the foot of the couch in front of me and nurses while standing. I am sitting on the couch and she is standing in front of me. The first time she did it all I could do was laugh and say this is now a self serve pump. I am not worried about it. I just think it's funny.

Is Too Much Milk Aggravating Reflux?

Dear Lactation Consultant,
I'm nursing my 21-month-old along with my one-month-old. I've noticed that my milk lets down fast and furious. It seems like it's way too much for my newborn. How can I nurse her so that she's not choking on the milk? My 21-month-old certainly enjoys all of the milk, and I'm wondering if it's his nursing (twice daily) that's causing my milk to come in so fast. My daughter also has reflux, and I have the feeling that all of the milk is aggravating it (because her tummy fills up so fast). Do you think that's a possibility?
