    My baby is 5 days old. He has never nursed more than 10 minutes on average on either breasts. He is so sleepy and I have to wake him up to nurse. My milk came in on day 3 and I heard him swallow the milk. He got so many poop diapers tha day. But today on day 5. I don't feel full. When I offered him one breast he just nursed for 5 minutes and heard him swallow and he is asleep and not interested in nursing. I am so worried that I am not feeling full anymore and he is not interested for much time. I have seen my friends babies who nurses for 45 mins and wakes up to nurse. Why is my baby doesn't wake up to nurse even at 5 days old. I am very curious and worried, and he has not gained any. I feel like I am making a mistake . And I am not sure what it is. I am worried so much that even this time I have failed in breastfeeding . Pls help

    My daughter is now 6 months old and I'm breastfeeding her and also tandem nursing my 3 year old son. I recently separated with their father because of his infidelity in our relationship and I could no longer take being cheated on :( however, he still wants to be with the children and I'd love for him to be able to take them overnight. My son has gone a few days on multiple occasions without breastfeeding and has been fine, so I'm not worried about him, but my daughter has refused bottles since she was about 6 weeks old. I try giving her formula 2-3 times a day but she never drinks more than half an ounce. She's a smaller baby, only 12-13 pounds at 6 months and my doctor wants me to supplement with formula. She's been getting solid foods since she was 4 months and loves to eat them! I'm scared to leave her overnight as she still wakes up 2-3 times to nurse. I co-sleep with both my children as their father was never around and it helped me to feel safer knowing they were both right next to me. My big concern is that my mother wants to take me on a trip to Florida (I live in Colorado) for a week in September with my aunties and cousins for a girls week. I so desperately need this vacation, but I'm terrified of how my daughter will react to me being gone or that I will somehow cause irreversible issues in her life if I just up and leave her so I need to get us both prepared for the time apart and I don't know what to do. I didn't leave my son for more than a few hours until he...

    I feel like I got hit by a Mack truck. Fever, headache, chills fatigue. I don't imagine i caught the flu - have not left the house much and haven't been around sick people. No one else is sick. I'm 5 weeks postpartum. I have a large milk storage capacity (like 15 ounces per side) and have a bad oversupply issue. That said, my breasts feel fine. My nipples are sore but they were this way with my first. My doctor said to take the antibiotics anyway, which I will. But I'm really confused as to why I'd have mastitis with no breast symptoms. Is this something that can happen? Infection with no breast pain/ hard or red/sore areas that are obvious?

    Please I need some reassurance. My baby boy was born on July 23rd via c section. He was 8 pounds 13 oz birth weight. Today July 26. He weighs 7 pounds 14 ounces. More than 10% weight loss. Which made pediatric nurse concerned for the baby and asked me to supplement formula twice a day. My milk came in on 25 the evening which the lactation consultant confirmed. She checked and saw me nursing the baby. About the baby. He was the really really sleepy the first day. He had lots of pee diapers and 4 meconium diapers on day1. After that he did not poop the 2nd day but I have been put him on breast every two hours. Today morning he pooped it was green. And he had one more poop after few hours it was green. Baby seems content after every feeding. What mistake is going on why doesn't he gain weight instead of losing so much. I know c section babies sleep a lot. But today he is a lot better and eating well. I said I will not supplement formula because I know my milk is there. I can hear him suckle and swallow. I had too much amniotic fluid. Is that a reason that he had too many meconium stools and fluid in his body which he lost in three days? Please help

    I will be going back to work in the next few weeks. As a teacher, I won't be able to pump as often as my 5 (then 6 month) daughter nurses. It looks like I will be skipping one feeding session, going about 5 hours. If I skip a pumping session, supplementing with frozen breastmilk, and then formula, as needed, will my supply hold when I pump or breastfeed other times of the day? I know it's not ideal, but I think it's what I have to work with. Will I be able to nurse on the weekends still? I am also concerned because when I pump I don't generally produce as much as she eats, so I am concerned in general about pumping. I have been pumping at night to build up a stash, but a few ounces a day will go quickly. What's been your experience? I am trying not to freak out about it all.

    Please help! My son is almost 3 months. Did not have a problem until now. I don't feel let down and enforgement anymore, it just stopped. My baby also is losing weight so obviously my milk supply dropped. When I pump I can hardly do 2 ounces, it could be 6 before. I don't know what to do. What is the reason of such a sudden drop?

    My daughter is 11 weeks old and has been EBF since birth. Her stool consistently contains mucus. She has some yellow diapers but many are shades of green or brown. I asked my pediatrician about the mucus at DD 2 week appointment and she assured me that mucus isn't necessarily a concern in an otherwise healthy baby. In the last two weeks my baby has had three diapers with small -- but visible -- streaks of blood. The pediatrician has now suggested I try a dairy and soy-free diet. My consumption of both has been pretty limited already, so I'm concerned that MSPI may not be the cause of blood/mucus in stool, though I am trying the diet anyway. Besides MSPI, what are other causes of mucus and blood in stool? Is it possible that other things I've been eating (peanut butter, wheat, etc.) could be responsible? Some other information that may or may not be relevant: -baby spits up very frequently and has occasional projectile vomit, though she does not appear to be upset by either

    Greetings. This is my first post on this board so apologies if it is a)lengthy or b)in the wrong Forum My daughter is 4 months old and has been breastfed since birth. She gets the occasional bottle of pumped milk (especially in the first few months when I needed some sleep) but I have been off work for the summer and we have gotten on a good schedule so now she only gets a bottle about once a week if at all. Once she was a little less than 3 months old in a desperate need for sleep and sanity I began putting her in the bed with me and nursing her to sleep. (Did my best to make as safe as possible with no mattress pads, extra pillows, sheet only etc..) This was a lifesaver for me because I was doing all the night feedings since my husband works a dangerous job and I want him to get his rest. I noticed that her and I were both getting more sleep as well. She sleeps much longer next to me than in her bassinet or crib. Well fast forward and now she is 4 months old. We just had our 4 month well child and the doctor seemed a little surprised at her weight and mentioned that we could put her in bed and turn off the baby monitor :mad: . I brought up to him that we co-slept and he basically encouraged us to get baby out of the bed which I know my husband has been thinking anyways. I want to do what is fair to my husband and am trying my hardest to get her to sleep in her crib. I assume that the first step would be naps in there, but she now cries instantly when we set her...

    Hello, I would love some advice. My baby is 7 weeks old. It took a while for her posterior tongue tie to be recognized and her lip tie to be recognized. For the first 4 weeks she was mostly EBF (got a little formula the first week of life due to jaundice - that's a whole other story). At week four she was diagnosed by my new IBCLC and referred to dentist, BUT at that time I had already had deep fissures in both nipples and a lot of pain so I turned to the pump to keep my supply up. My supply is not super plentiful. I make about 3-4 ounces every 3 hours. My baby eats about 3-3.5 oz from the bottle. At about 5.5 weeks we were able to get them both fixed (lip and tongue tie) and I started putting her to the breast and again it hurt and my nipples continued to come out of her mouth compressed and painful. My IBCLC gave me nipple shields and instructed me to offer the breast with the shield and then bottle feed the rest. My baby hates the shield. When she does latch with it she crinkles it at the sides and sucks on the nipple, she barely gets anything out so that wasn't really working. I have put her to the breast sporadically which she somewhat likes better. I should say she likes it only with a shallow latch. She screams if I try to get a deep latch like she doesn't like the breast at the back of the mouth, however when you put a finger back there however her gag does not seem sensitive at all. Also my nipples continue to come out compressed and painful because she...

    My son is 3 months old, and he's been sleeping a 4-6 hour stretch since he was a newborn (which was shocking for me - my daughter woke every 1-2 hours until she weaned). The past week he's been stretching that out to a 7-8 hr stretch, and now I have mastitis on one side and tonight I'm painfully engorged on the other (just pumped to relieve the pressure). I'm afraid of ending up with mastitis in both breasts. I have always suspected I have oversupply (and overactive letdown); maybe a very large storage capacity - we already only nurse one side at each feeding because that's all he needs (and he refuses to nurse when he doesn't feel like it - screams his head off if I even offer), but this of course means lately one side will go without any draining for almost 12 hours overnight. He does nurse every 1.5-2 hrs during the day, and his weight gain is VERY good; up to probably close to 18lbs now with birth weight of 8lbs 11 oz. He sleeps the first stretch at night on his own bed in our room, then comes into bed with me for the rest of the night. He's swaddled from the waist down during that first stretch, as he's a thumb sucker (recent discovery, and I think part of why he's stretching out his nighttime feedings). I'm just not sure if there's any way to deal with this so I'm not going to get engorged/plugged ducts/mastitis regularly?

    Hi everyone, Need advice. I have a 4 month old baby and I'm exclusively pumping because my baby refuses to nurse. On a good day, I can get him to nurse once. My breastmilk have significantly dropped in the last two months. I was able to pump at least 3 oz a session and now I can barely pump and ounce and I am renting a hospital grade pump (medela symphony). I was able to feed him mostly breastmilk for at least two months. He's now eating about 4-6 oz of formula each feeding and now it takes me a day two pump 2 oz. ;( I have tried fenugreek, doesn't work for me. Fenugreek made him really gassy as well. I have power pumped every two hours for three straight days. I keep myself hydrated. I eat healthy. I exercise daily. I know that getting your period temporarily drops your supply but when I first had mine post partum last month, it didn't make a difference with my supply. I really don't know why my milk supply has dropped. I don't want to give up breastfeeding him and feeding him my breastmilk. And I feel like I have exhausted all my resources. Please tell me there is hope... Please help! I appreciate all your input. Sorry, my post was long.

    Hi, I have had a wonderful breastfeeding journey with my 19 month old daughter until recently. Lately, I find myself wanting to set some limits and boundaries about how long and often she nurses at night, because I'm sore from her strong toddler latch and frankly, tired! She sleeps in my room, and sometimes in my bed (not my preference, but I give in when she's teething/sick). She usually wakes 1-2 times a night to nurse. 1 is fine with me as long as it's not a long nursing session, 2 starts to get on my nerves. If I don't let her nurse however often and long as she wants, she will scream for at least an hour until I eventually give in. Having Daddy take her, offering snugges, water, a stuffy, counting down, etc... nothing else helps. She physically pushes herself away from me into a seated position, resisting my offer to cuddle her, unless I give her access. She gets so frantic when I don't give in, it's both heartbreaking and really annoying in my sleep-deprived state. We've started talking about it before bed and when she wakes in the morning... that hasn't helped yet, but I will continue to tell her that it hurts me (if I cry, say "bo bo" (it hurts), or make a face when she nurses, it doesn't stop her) when she latches on so hard and stays on longer than I want. My parenting philosophy is definitely gentle/attachment, but I'm finding it hard to be gentle with her when she is so rough with me. I have been thinking about weaning or night weaning, but I feel in my...

    Hi I'm a FTM and new here. I have a six-week-old baby girl who still struggles at poor latching. According to the lactation consultant, she has a comparebly small mouth while I have long nipples. So it's frustrating every time I need to shove my nipple into her mouth. I never succeed to push all of the lower part of areola into her mouth.

    Hi all, I was wondering if I could draw from your collective wisdom about this issue. I am nursing a 2.5 y.o. and am in week 28 of my pregnancy (rainbow baby after a miscarriage at 9 weeks). The toddler nurses to sleep for naptime and bedtime. In the past few days, I experienced've BH contractions when I nurse. They feel intense and happen every 10 minutes or so. Last night I experienced 3 strong ones. I have read about this online and found different answers (a. that it doesn't matter, b. stop nursing, c. stop nursing only if I have four contractions in an hour).

    So long story short, baby girl has consistent green mucous poops with breast milk. She also seems like a particularly fussy baby. Only other symptom is flesh colored bumps all around her temples and forehead (could just be sensitive skin or baby acne). 2 week checkup doc said "it doesn't seem to bother her, she's fine". Wasn't convinced so started Alimentum 1 week ago with occasional comfort nursing (maybe 1x every day for a few minutes). Her poops are now brown green but still SO slimy and shiny looking. I'm pumping to keep up my supply, but I'm so emotionally exhausted racking my brain on what to do. I really really want to BF, but feel like I should continue the formula to experiment. Does anyone have experience with dairy intolerance or mucous poops? I wonder at what point I should just stop pumping and accept that she might need formula. Or should I resume BF maybe this week and see if her fussiness and poops change?

    My firstborn has a life-threatening allergy to dairy. He wasn't formally diagnosed until he had an anaphylactic reaction to some butter on toast when he was 7 months old, but while breastfeeding him, I had suspected a problem very early on, and had cut milk out of my diet from when he was about 3 or 4 months old, until around 6 months, when he seemed to tolerate milk in my diet again. It kills me to think what I put my son through in those first few months: he was miserable and I *knew* something wasn't right, and yet everyone kept telling me that it was normal and some babies are just fussy. Well, I'm pregnant again, and due soon. I really want to breastfeed this new baby too, but I'm terrified that she will have allergies too. I know statistically her odds are higher, since she has a sibling with allergies, but I am at a loss as to what I can do to prepare. I hate the thought that I might cause her discomfort and pain because of something I eat. My son's allergist told me that early and frequent exposure is the best chance I can give her to avoid developing allergies, and suggested I give her one bottle of cows-milk based formula a day to give her the best chance of not developing an allergy, and either way, making sure that cows milk is part of my own diet, but I consumed a ton of diary with my son, and he's still allergic. Does anyone have any thoughts or experience on how I can approach feeding this new baby to both give us the best chance of successfully...

    Hi, I have a 4 day old. He has a poop after pretty much every feed and they're yellow now with seeds. We saw doctor today and he's started to regain weight. However he hasn't peed for 12 hours. Lots of poop, but no pee. I breastfed my twins so I am pretty confident this time around about keeping his interest at the breast etc. He's currently cluster feeding. Any thoughts or advice on the pee? Doctor wants me to call if no pee by 7pm. Thank you!

    Hi. I just had my baby 4 days ago on the 19th. I really wanted to exclusively breastfeed and as a NICU nurse, I felt pretty confident that I'd be able to. However, it has been nothing but frustration. I thought he started out ok; he'd latch and suck but would get frustrated. I saw lactation at the hospital and she made some suggestions so I thought we'd be good. He ended up losing 8% of his weight by day 2, but they were fine with that. He started getting more and more frustrated with every feed, even though I was feeding him pretty much on demand... usually every 2 hours. We assumed he was cluster feeding. By the time he saw the pediatrician, he had lost 13% of his weight and it turns out I was just literally starving him. The pediatrician suggested supplementing with formula until my milk came in. I was really against it but also didn't want him to lose more weight. My husband fed him maybe 3 bottles over the course of 24 hours and I started pumping. I first pumped .7mL, then 4, then 12. But he would still take 35-60mL from the formula each time. I woke up this morning and my breasts are wildly engorged. They are so incredibly painful and I guess that's why he was getting so frustrated. The milk is there but it isn't making its way out. I'm trying hot compresses, massage, pumping every 2 hours... I'm barely getting anything out and they're rock hard and painful. We saw the pediatrician again this morning. Of course he gained a ton of weight. Thanks to...

    Hi all. I am wondering if any of you have been in a similar situation as myself. I am expecting our second baby and hoping to breastfeed. I tried so hard to breastfeed our first and it just did not work out as I hoped. He was very slow to put on weight (took to week 4 before he was back to birth weight), he had a tongue tie, he had severe silent reflux and at the time it just felt we were fighting a losing battle. At 2 weeks we supplemented with formula which looking back now was the beginning of the end. We did not have the knowledge to come back from this at the time. In hindsight supplementing with formula didn't even help with his weight because it took another 2 weeks for him to get back to birth weight so then it was assumed he was a baby who was naturally slow to put on weight. Followed by a trip to A&E and overnight stay in the hospital because he was vomiting blood and they couldn't say for sure if it was from my nipple (no obvious cuts) or from his oesophagus from the reflux. At 6 weeks our breastfeeding journey ended and it was one of the saddest times for me. I'm sure that sounds crazy to some people but it really was like I was grieving. To this day I still feel guilty thinking what if or if only I had know. What helps is we have the happiest and thank God healthiest little baby now so at least there is that and although much shorter than I had hope I do think him having had breast milk even for that short time has really helped So I am due my...

She was gaining very well until she turned 3 months. She suddenly stopped eating much and cries and pulls away from my breasts even though she is hungry. I was wondering if anyone with experience with their baby and lip tie can tell me if she looks like she might have it? I don't know how to insert a picture though

    We went on vacation for 2 weeks and BF the entire time, no bottles. Now my 14 month old daughter has been refusing bottles at daycare ever since we came back. She goes to daycare 3 days a week, is with grandma 1 day a week, and I work from home 1 day a week (and she's with me on weekends.) She still nurses throughout the night. She is a reverse cycle-er I think. Any recommendations on getting her to drink breast milk during the day or is this a lost cause now? Normally she was having 2 bottles, each around 4 ounces. I am still sending those in but they keep getting dumped. Do I still pump at work? I pump at 10a and 2p. She nurses on a 'good sleeping night' only once over night at 2 am... but lately it is every 2 and 3 hours. We also just moved this week.

    My 15-month-old son is now on his second day of refusing to nurse. We have a very regular schedule that has gone smoothly and uninterrupted for most of his life. But starting yesterday, he will bite my nipple, point at it, and shake his head no. I pumped last night and this morning and he drank it all out of a cup. I'd rather not get into that habit, though, because I've never produced much with pumping (no letdown, little is expressed -- IDK, my body just doesn't want to respond to a pump). Any advice or suggestions? He has 8 teeth and hasn't done this before, but could it be teething? It is such a sudden development and my breasts feel too full even after trying to pump. Thanks for your help!

    I am trying to re-latch my 2 month old boy. Right now, I am pumping and feeding him via bottle and my breasts have enough milk and flow is very good. (like dripping) I had a lactation consultant visit at 1st month, and she suggested with skin-to-skin, instant reward and nipple shield etc. This worked perfect for 15 days, and then I had to get my breast checked for masitits (breast lumps and needle pain) and he had to go on bottle. I am sobbing and worried if my body is so bitter for him :( Now at 2 month 1 week old, he does not latch again, I am using a feeding pillow for help with feeding 1) when I try to put him in feeding position (lap or football), he cries and understands he is going to get breastfeed. 2) when I offer him nipple, he tastes/touches the nipple with tongue and refuses it. He does the same thing with nipple shield, I tried with multiple shields.

    Baby girl is 5 months old. Breastfed and supplemented with anywhere from 6-12 oz formula per day. My supply dwindled starting month 2 due to tongue tie/ineffective removal and has never bounced back (tie revised at 3 months). I'm on 100mg domperidone/day. I pump once a day after she goes to sleep and sometimes one other time during the day, but I nurse a LOT. Like probably every 45min/1 hour. And practically all night long (I don't supplement during the night). I think she gets most of her breastmilk at night. She drinks long and steadily and has two heavy diapers per night. Totally don't mind the night nursing; I'm sure it's saved us. I'm not going back to work thankfully. But even as recently as 3 weeks ago she was only getting 4-6 oz formula per day, which I would honestly be totally fine with if that's what I could settle on. But now it's more like 10-12 oz per day. We've fluctuated like this before and I don't know what to attribute it to. Her nursing sessions during the day have been super short, like 2 min per side. She's distracted to boot. Is there any hope to get my supply up? I know I should pump more, but I don't know where I would fit it in. I still hold her for naps (they're just 40 min anyway) so can't pump then. I think she gets frustrated with my slow flow, and I think my letdown (which I've never felt) takes a while, if I even have one. I feel like she eats better when my breast are fuller and it comes quicker. Is that false thinking? Should I try a Rx...

    This is my fifth baby, and all have been on the lower end of the weight spectrum. My pediatricion has told me to supplement with formula for all of them. I listened to him the first time, and that made the situation go from what was probably fine to bad to worse, and he ended up being exclusively formula fed. With my twins and my last baby i didnt listen to him and just kept doing my best exclusively breastfeeding, but they all remained at the lowest number acceptable. (they are all miraculously fine btw) So at birth my newest baby weighed 5 lb 7 oz. He was exactly at his birth weight at 10 days. Three weeks after his 10 day checkup he weighed 6 lb 9 oz. It took him a full week to learn how to latch (two weeks early, knot in cord and wrapped around neck, weak for first week) and he still doesnt SEEM like he nurses that well. He has good output (5-6 wet, 1-2 poo) and is relatively happy besides being impossible to keep sleeping due to horrid reflux/vomiting. My ped isnt happy with his growth (as usual) but i dont know whether his concerns are valid or if my baby is fine though at the lower end of the weight chart. I nurse him whenever he wants... sometimes every hour (mornings and evenings) and sometimes he goes 3-4 (warm sleepy afternoons and nights). Some days i think he is feeding so good and other days im wondering if hes forgotten he needs milk to survive?? Can somebody just let me know if his weight is okay and if im doing okay breastfeeding (to you know, calm...

    My almost 4-week old has been sleeping from approx. 11pm to 4am the last few nights. Will this hurt my milk supply? Should I pump at night (ugh!)? So far I've had no supply problems, with Baby gaining an average of 2 ounces per day as of last weighing at two weeks old. But does 4 weeks seem early to have my supply be able to handle this nighttime stretch? I should add, when he was gaining so well he was nursing all the time including at night. He gets weighed again next week. Thank you!!

    So my son was born with HLHS and we've been in the hospital with him for two months now. I didn't pump enough so I never had a full supply and now I just can't muster up the energy or effort to do it anymore. We should be going home in a few days now, and I'm thinking about stopping until we get back into the swing of things I'm worried about my milk drying up, and because of his condition I can't breastfeed. Can I bring my milk back with just my medela pump-and-go advanced and herbs and such? I want to provide for my little heart warrior, but at the moment I just dread pumping and would like to take a break.
