    Hello ladies I'm 32 weeks pregnant, and I have an 2.5 yo toddler too. Last year, before I got pregnant, my best friend picked me as her maid of honor. I was soooo excited, I helped her as much as I could from here. She lives in Washington state, where the wedding is going to be, and I live in Mississippi. The shortest trip is a 2 plane ride, about 7-8 hours total. Eeesh... Anyway, after I got pregnant, I told her and she was like !?!?!?! Please tell me you're still coming!!, and since the baby is due in May and the wedding is in August, I was like yeah, I can still go! Well, now we are getting into ordering bridesmaids dresses, etc, etc, and I was talking to my hubby yesterday about it, and I think he had forgotten about it. He didn't want to go in the first place anyway, he's not very fond of traveling by plane. So the first thing he told me was: tell her you won't go, how are you going to do with the breastfeedi ng thing? That was it. I freaked out.

    Hi ladies. I'm starting to think maybe I need to supplement, but I'm not sure. DD is 12 weeks old. My last day at my temp job was Friday. I worked 10 hour days for two weeks straight, and pumped every two hours while at work. My mom watched DD. At first, mom was feeding her 2 oz of my milk and 2 oz of formula (4oz total) every two hours. After my last day at work, I found over 20 oz of unused breastmilk in her fridge. Apparently she decided to start feeding her 4 oz of formula and 2 oz of breastmilk (6 oz total) because "It helps her sleep longer and I've got stuff to do. Your milk goes straight through her". Mom says she slept well and really didn't fuss much. Now on the other hand, when my husband and MIL kept her, they paced her bottles and the most she took was like 3 oz, every 1 1/2 - 2 hours. They said she was really fussy and only slept 30 minutes at a time, if that. Now that I'm back to being a SAHM, I'm nursing full time again. I feel like I feed her constantly. Sometimes she gets really fussy and the only way to calm her down is to nurse her, even if I know she's probably not hungry. The longest I can get her to sleep without holding her or putting her in her sling is 20 minutes. At night she can go 6 hours without feeding, but she has to be cuddling with my boob. So I'm starting to wonder if she's really getting satisfied. Mom made it sound like she was the easiest baby ever when she was on the formula..... I really don't want to supplement, but I don't...

    My son is 6 weeks old. He is currently breastfed 7-8times per day and generally sleeps one long stretch during the night (eats at 9:30p sleeps until 3:30). Doctor has my giving him an additional 1 oz breast milk supplement after feedings when he is still hungry, so I have been pumping approx 6x per day after feedings. My typical yield for the day has been 7 oz. Inexplicably yesterday I began noticing a decrease in pumping output and have dropped my output by about half- I am now getting half an ounce total from both breasts for the last few sessions. Even my 3am session was under half an ounce! Additionally, my little guy has been getting fussy at the breast and not eating very effectively. I have recently been weaning him from the nipple shield (he has a poor latch), so that might be part of it, but he also won't nurse well with it. Finally, my breasts just don't feel full anymore. This has all happened overnight (no changes in diet, water intakes, and I have been taking my fenugreek and eating oatmeal) so I am quite afraid that it is because my period is beginning. Is there another explanation? Thank you!

    I have a ten week old, she will be twelve weeks a day after I go back to work on April 6th. I've been almost exclusively breastfeeding, with some supplementation of formula (at most three oz daily). She is 8 lbs at last weigh in at drs office (last Friday). She's gotten bottles of both breastmilk and formula given by my husband and we have a syringe in case she won't take the bottle (she often won't take the formula from me). I have been pumping about once a day since my milk came in and have some in the freezer. I'm planning on starting to pump more a few days before I go back to work to have some in the fridge for my husband. I'm interested in getting a better idea of how to handle this and am not sure how much I should shoot for. My husband wants to save the freezer stash for later but I think we should use a little just bc I think it will be hard to pump enough and nurse at the same time while I'm home. I know she'll need at least twelve oz or so, possibly double or triple that. I have an eight hour workday, but commute so will be gone around ten hours. Thoughts? I'm also dreading the first day of our new morning routine . . .getting up with so little sleep and transferring her to her bed since we've been cosleeping and its working well but she can't be in bed with my husband asleep. She's too young and he has sleep apnea anyway. How have others handled this?

    Hi Everyone, I am a FTM and my baby girl is 6 weeks old now. I have oversupply with forceful letdown. My baby was diagnosed with foremilk/hindmilk imbalance. My poor LO Is miserable with gas and bloating. She couldn't sleep and you can feel her stomach churns. She would doze off only to wake up screaming in pains. The only way to get her to sleep in on her stomach on top of me or my husband (I'm afraid to let her sleep on her stomach in the crib) We tried little tummy gas drop which help but only lasted about 2 hours or so. The gripe water seems to help immediately but 10 mins later she would scream in argonize pains. We tried the gripe water twice and same reaction both time so I stop using gripe water. My LC recommend block feeding. I did the block feeding for 7 days (3 feeding per breast) which help bring my oversupply down some. I still pump for 2-3 mins before switch side to help her get the hindmilk ( I get 2-3oz of foremilk in those 2-3 mins of pumping) At the in person consult the LC concerns that since LO is only 6 weeks old she doesn't want me to diminish my supply too much. She suggest to stop block feeding or reduce to 2 feeding per side. It seems like it been helping. I nurse her roughly every two hours. Is it ok that a 6 weeks old still eat every two hourse? My LC seems shock when I said she feed every two hours but didn't say anything. However now I hit another wall. She only wants to nurse for 5-10 mins on the boob she would unlatch or fall asleep. I would...

    My baby boy is 2.5 months old. I am wanting to get him used to taking a bottle so I can work once or twice a week.. I've tried lansinoh momma, avent, and now munchkin latch.. my biggest issue is that he has a bad gag reflex, so i was thinking that maybe there are bottles with shorter nipples? He does fine latching on me, even with his very minor lip and tongue time... with the bottle he usually latches fine, but then starts gagging on it, he wasn't able to take a pacifier without gagging really bad. With the bottle eventually he'll figure it out right in his mouth, but to begin with he gags a lot, which tends to make him upset. Any advice is welcome!

    Hi All, my baby girl is 11 days old and I have been having milk supply issues since we brought her home. I was and still am feeding her every 3 hours but she wasn't satisfied. One night she wouldn't latch at all and we had to get formula. To see how much I was producing I pumped after baby had not fed for 3 hours- I got a total of 1oz! And then I was bone dry. I spoke with my LC and she put me on a 3 stage program to bring my supply up bc baby's weight was low at birth 5lbs 15oz- feed each side for 15 minutes, supplement with formula- however much baby wants and last step is to pump for 15 minutes with hospital grade pump which I rented the same day. This is to be repeated every 3 hours which I have done religiously because it need my supply to increase. I am also eating oatmeal everyday and taking Mothers Milk Plus every 7 hours. LC assured me my supply would go up by today- baby is still eating about 1-2oz of formula or whatever I managed to pump out of me. After she eats I can only get .25oz to .5oz total With the pump. She has very regular wet and dirty diapers- assuming with help from formula. Anything else I can do? I'm so discouraged about this whole situation because I really want to breastfeed successfully with her But I'm not ready to give up yet. Thanks!

    My baby is 4.5 months old. At 3 weeks age she had her frenulum and lip tie released . At that point she was having a hard time with the flow, very gassy, fussing at the breast, and her top lip didn't curl out. A month after the procedure I noticed that they both seemed to grow back. However, she was gaining weight and I was a bit traumatized by the procedure and didn't want to take her back for second time. I'm finding that this week my nipples are sore. She seems to have a hard time 'keeping suction' while latched and often it sounds like she is swallowing air/gulping while nursing. Now that she is older she is also moving her head around quite a bit more, and that doesn't help with losing suction. Her top lip still doesn't curl out. Ive also posted earlier about my concerns with supply, and I'm wondering if this is a factor? At her 4 month check-up her weight was good, 75th percentile. I'm contemplating whether its worth having the tongue/lip tie release done again. My concern is that breastfeeding will become increasingly more difficult as she grows if this issue is of significance.

    Hi everyone, Gave birth to my second child 2days ago and was full of confidence after the birth and with the amazing staff that I had with the midwife led unit(fantastic supportive women) until the paediatrician came around to discharge us and do final check over baby. To say I was fuming was an understatement but I kept quiet. I did not want a blazing row and just wanted to get home.basically a woman a little older than myself decided to educate me how to feed my baby never even thinking to ask do I have other kids? Have I breastfed before? Or anything. I did try and answer questions she asked but she was extremely condescending and corrected my every answer. That's when I said to myself she is full of ****, a text book expert but with absolutely no personal experience of having keep do or breastfeeding herself. From telling me to feed often to supplementing in the first fees days?? And then trying to tell me milk arrives in a few hrs after birth????(and she didn't mean colostrum) then telling me look he is starving, and the signs to look for He has never been parted from me since birth and was put on breast in a matter of minutes.my confidence has been shattered and now I'm terrified that I don't know what I'm doing anymore. I know it's still early days and my milk will probably arrive in the next day or two but the doc really pissed me off. Sorry for language

    My ten week old is almost ebf (dr insisted on formula bc she's small) but I give her less than three oz of formula at most a day by syringe and tend to offer the breast first unless she won't take it. I didn't give her any formula today. She has typically had six to eight wet diapers and two to four poops per day. Poop is typical, yellow and seedy, sometimes mucusy. Yesterday she pooped only once and it seemed to make her very fussy for about an hour before she did, causing issues with feeding. Tonight she wasn't as fussy before she pooped although she was extremely fussy after, which I finally managed to fix by switching breasts. My question is it typical to see a decrease like this from one day to the next? Her wet diapers are still about the same in number. I almost called the doctors office today but was super busy so it slipped my mind. Plus, the nurse who tends to answer the messages is just not helpful so I'm a little reluctant to call. However, you've all been wonderful in answering my new mom questions so I thought I'd ask here to see what people think. In case this is relevant: I was asked to eliminate dairy and soy from my diet almost two weeks ago, and I have mostly succeeded ( a couple of times had cheese by mistake but that's it).

    Hi All, Thanks so much in advance for reading and taking the time to answer. :gvibes I was hoping some of you would have some advice for me and my lil one. My ds is just about to turn a year old...(where has the time gone! :lol) and we are still exclusively breastfeeding. He is doing great - he weighs almost 22 lbs and has not been sick at all other than being congested twice. (Thank goodness for Nose Frieda!) He took his first steps at 7 mos and does the low crawl :clap He is incredibly smart and very interested in everything. However, my dh is a father to two others from previous marriages and is a bit skeptical that ds is not on solids yet. I am a big "go-natural" proponent and others joke that I would have better lived in the pioneer age ;) so I take comfort in the fact that God made our bodies to do this and I have researched A LOT as well as contacted some people about him not being on solids yet. He has eaten some banana around 9 mos, but it messed with his digestion and poo pooing so we discontinued. He was more interested in playing with it and smashing it anyway. I am not having any issues with supply, thank the Lord and love breastfeeding my ds. How do I handle the criticism and disdain? Some feel I am depriving him or making him too dependent on me. I know this isn't the case, but how do I overcome the pressure? I have researched much on attachment and bonding as well and know the solid foundation that it lays for our children. Seems most...

    I was watching this documentary on breast milk and the video showed a clip of breast milk being pumped. It was a close up of the valve in the bottle and showed the milk gushing into the bottle with each suction. When I have pumped, I get a drop at a time, but I have only pumped after nursing my baby to build up a little supply. Is this how it's supposed to come out when you pump to replace a nursing session? The first time I pumped, I pumped one breast that was full while I nursed baby on the other side (it was a comfort nurse), and I got 3 oz. The second time I pumped both sides after nursing, and I got 3 oz total. Then the last time I got 1 oz total from both breast, and although it was after a nursing session, it wasn't a particularly serious feed- more of a dream feed/comfort sucking. once I go back to work and am pumping instead of nursing while at work, should I expect variation from day to day, or would this indicate an issue with the pump or other issue? Also, I have found that I have a difficult time letting down. I guess I'll have to figure out something that works for me. Lastly, how high are you suppose to turn the dial? The manual says a little lower than uncomfortable, but I don't find any of it to be comfortable. It's the suction that makes my breast feel a little sensitive afterwards. I have a Medela PISA. Thanks, all!

    Dear All, I had my second child, my baby girl on March 5th via c-section. She weighed 7lbs 15oz. Afterwards, she dropped to 7lbs 2 oz. There were some things they did that I was not happy about, like kept her the first night, even though I didn't want them to do that. They wanted me to rest after the C-section. I did see an LC at the hospital, but during my two day stay we couldn't get her to latch on right. Last Friday, the doctor weighed her at 7lbs 9oz and told me to start supplementing after each feeding, which I don't feel comfortable doing and haven't really been doing except for two, 2 oz bottles, so I could get some sleep. (I am pumping, but not getting more than 2 oz.) She grew an inch and half and by my count has plenty of wet and pooped diapers. Still, I don't think she is latching on correctly or at least when she unlatches is hurting my nipples. She is pinching my nipples. She does swallow well but not consistently, and she is not opening her mouth wide enough, so any tips on how to get my baby to open her mouth wider would be great. Most of the time, she nurses every 1.5 to 2 hours, but she does have longer stretches.

    Hello, I am a FTM. My baby is 10 weeks old. I know I have an overactive let down, as my baby pulls off during let down and I spray forcefully. He also chokes and coughs during feedings and makes a clicking sound. I always let the milk go into a washcloth and then let him reattach. My LO is pretty gassy and fussy between feedings. He does not have foamy green poop though. My question is: does OALD mean you also have an oversupply? Not sure if I should try block feeding. The symptoms I'm worried about are: -Constant short nursing sessions -Fussiness/gassiness -Inability to go longer than 2 hours of sleeping before wanting to eat

    Hi all, I have a 3.5 MONTH (Not week as in the title) old girl who is exclusively breastfed. Her birth weight was exactly 8 lbs. Since birth she has gained on average a little over 5 ounces/week, so on the lower side of normal, but still keeping up. She is growing in length and very appropriate for development, so no concerns there. My main concern is that I weighed her today on the same scale as 1 week ago exactly and she had only gained 1.5 ounces, from 12 lbs 6 oz last week to 12 lbs 7.5 oz today. That really surprised me. She seems happy and we are changing wet and dirty diapers, though I'm not counting how many a day. The only things I can think that may be happening are: 1. I went to work over the weekend (first full days back at work) and she fed EBM from a bottle both days from my husband and her grandmother. I pumped while at work and got 3-5 ounces per session. Could returning to work have affected her interest in nursing? She seems a little disinterested in nursing during the day; I have to put her on the breast every 2-3 hours and then she nurses for a pretty short period of time, gets frustrated when the flow slows (starts pulling like taffy and grunting, crying) and so I take her off, switch breasts, then just stop. If I let her sit there longer, she shows frustrated behavior and pulls off repeatedly, doesn't really suckle.

    Hi everyone, this is my first post. I am discouraged and need some help. I am an experienced breastfeeding mom and am currently nursing my 8+ month son. I am currently a SAHM and haven't pumped much. Eight weeks ago, I was in a car accident and badly injured my non-dominant hand. I was in the hospital for three days, and that was the first time my then-seven-month-old son had formula. I have NO use of my hand (it is expected to heal completely, but it is taking a very long time), so I cannot be alone with my son. I am on pain medication, which is compatible with breastfeeding, although the pain is pretty manageable now. He spends one day a week away from me and runs all errands with my husband. I have medical appointments 3-4 times per week. Otherwise, we are together. Before the accident we were bed sharing at night. That has continued somewhat, but nighttime sleep is mediocre at best for all of us right now. I cannot pick up, bathe, or diaper my son, so our only sustained physical contact is through nursing. To complicate things, I am three days into antibiotic treatment for mastitis. My body is just incredibly run down. The emotional aspect of nursing is very important to both of us.

    My baby just turned 8 months old Saturday. We started solids when he was 6 months old. We started out slowly and really want to make sure that he continues to get most of his nutrition from breast milk. I originally wanted to do BLW but between his lower than average weight and my fear of him choking, I've stuck with pureed and mashed foods so far. At 7 months we went to the doctor to check on his weight, he is pretty low on the percentile chart but extremely active and meeting all his milestones. The doctor was happy with his weight because he was staying steady in his percentile. (He has since gone up slightly in the percentiles). At that appointment, I asked the doctor how much food he should be getting each day so that he is getting good nutrition without encouraging weaning (he nurses around 5-6 times a day and has two 4oz bottles while I'm at work). I was told that he should be eating a tablespoon of cereal & a tablespoon of fruit or vegetable at lunch and dinner. She said that he should be eating 3 meals a day by 9 months. Does this sound right? Everything I read says he should be eating a lot more than this.

    Background: 6 month old baby girl is doing great. I used to have an oversupply and have been block feeding for the last several months. One breast per feeding, feeding about every 3 hours. At work I only pump one side at a time, also every three hours. For the last two months I would pump between 3-5.5oz at each session (that's from only one breast). And I would be able to keep up with demand. Often with excess to put in the freezer at the end of the week. Current Situation: Currently (last 2 weeks) my daughter is drinking more throughout the day from the bottle (with nanny) than I am pumping at work. Last week I started a new diet and saw a decrease in supply which I quickly remedied by going back to my regular diet, but my supply has not rebounded. I am now falling behind. I am only getting 2-4oz per pumping session, and my daughter's nanny had to dip into my frozen stash (which I have plenty of (60+oz), so I'm not too stressed... but I'd like to keep my current supply up obviously) Questions: Should I stop block pumping? i.e. should I pump both sides at each session? If I pump both sides, should I also offer both sides during nursing sessions? My daughter usually eats very quickly, she eats in about 5-8 minutes (has done that since about 3 months) and now she unlatches and starts blowing raspberries (it's adorable...) I'm not sure if she'd be interested in trying the second side even if offered. I've thought I might also ask the nanny to not offer a bottle...

    Hi everyone, I recently gave birth to a beautiful baby girl! She was born at 29 weeks 5 days via emergency c-section due to severe preeclampsia and has been in the NICU for 20 days. She will continue to be there for about 5 more weeks (minimum) so she can grow, but has been doing amazing. I have been pumping like a madwoman- every 3 hours- and still am only producing about 30ml per session. While this is fine for now because she only eats 29ml per feed, I am concerned about my supply. I am working with a LC and doing all of the things that she suggested... fenugreek, oatmeal, TONS of water, mother's milk tea, hand expressing before pumping, power pumping (though only do this every other day due to time constraints), pump for 10, rest 5, pump for 10 during regular pumping sessions, and she just prescribed domperidone (though I am waiting for it to arrive and it will take at least another 5 days). I am worried about when her feeds increase because I think it will be before I make more milk and I don't want to supplement. I feel like my milk is the only thing I can actually do to help her while she is in the NICU. Feeling frustrated and sad. Any suggestions?

    Little one is 4 weeks. I exclusively pumped for nearly 3 weeks. Now I've gotten him off the bottle this last week, but he's stuck on the breast shield. I know it can risk low supply, so I want to get him off as soon as I can. I try offering, but he won't take breast. How can convince him to get off the plastic? :) thank you!

    There has to be a way to fix this my heart is breaking. My LO was a strong nurser the first 3 weeks of her life despite all our problems but now she won't take the breast at all. It started with cracked nipples leaving the hospital and then got a plugged duct and went on antibiotics in week 2. Then I think I had thrush entering week three but she kept powering through even though I was in so much pain. Starting week 4 we were instructed to introduce bottles to give me a break once in a while to heal. Then she started latching really well but would fuss at the breast. Local LC said it seemed like a dairy or gluten sensitivity and my milk was upsetting her so I should pump off foremilk and then offer breast and that worked for a couple days until she refused nipple completely. Screamed when placed near it. LC said to take a couple days off and pump only and clean up diet. Her mood is better and so are her poos but I don't know how to get her back to the breast. Now she roots and finds comfort in sleeping on my breast but won't open up at all to feed. Have tried nipple shield and lactation aid with no luck. Please help, I want this to work so bad, I don't know if I have the heart to Exclusively pump :(

    My son is 2 months old and has always nursed great. Now that he is no longer such a newborn, he's not as interested in eating every waking second of his day. That's fine, of course--I do mean EVERY WAKING SECOND!--but weirdly, he has decided that he will take only the left breast. The right breast is completely unacceptable to him unless he is a) super hungry, and b) side-lie nursing. My left breast--the one he likes--has always been a lower producer than my right. My question is, is this a problem? Will my left breast produce enough milk for him until such time as he decides the right side is acceptable again? If so, should I pump my right breast a few times a day, or just let the milk supply reduce in that side? Right now it is pretty engorged. He has at least 6-7 wet diapers every day and generally takes a huge poo once a day. (This has been his pattern for several weeks, not just lately.) Thanks!

    My daughter is 11 weeks old and I've been mixed feeding from the beginning. She started crying really bad the second day of birth and the nurses could only calm her with formula. I think that lead to my low supply. I've been pumping and taking herbal supplements to increase my supple and I could increase it but now baby is taking anywhere between 4 oz to 8 oz a day. I would love to wean her off the formula if possible but if not I don't want to give her more than this. Her weight gain at her 2 months checkup was great (77 percentile). Any advice would be appreciated.
