    I'm really distraught at the moment and need some advice, encouragement, anything that will help me feel better. I'm a newbie mom and my DD is 11 weeks old. She was born full term and via emergency c-section. On her 1st month checkup, her pedi said she gained 900g in 3 weeks. She said that you can never overfeed a baby, but my DD's weight gain was above the usual. I told her that DD wants to feed every hour. She sort of gasped at what I said. I told her DS is always crying and rooting every hour. She told me not all cries mean hunger. Her advice was to feed DS every 2 hours and give a paci if DS still wants to suck. (DD hates it and would get even more cranky).Another thing I asked her was if I should wake DS to feed at night because she's starting to sleep at long stretches. She said NO NEED. I'm a stay at home mom and I EBF but pump for a stash in case I need to leave DS with the grandparents. I can pump 3oz in 10 mins total. So I'm sure it's not a supply issue(am i correct?). DS always feeds for 20-30mins. Sometimes even 40! (She just loves to suck). After analyzing the situation I realized DS would search for my breast whenever she is tired and wants to doze off. This is only for naps. Since she was 10 days old she slept long stretches at night. And currently sleeps for 9-10 hours a stretch. At her pedi checkup yesterday, she was weighed and she only gained 200g in 3 weeks!!! :( I feel like I'm gonna cry! She wets 5 diapers and poops 2 times a day but she...

    My Ped has suggested doing this since my 15 month old did not grow between 12 and 14 months. He gained ounces, but no height. He is within normal range of milestones and Ped says he looks "great" but we're concerned with lack of growth/dropping off curve. He eats solids but has a dairy and nut allergy, so all the yogurt, butter, and cheese I'd normally be giving him has been replaced with seed butters, Chia seeds, and coconut yogurt/oil. He was 7 lb at birth and at 12 months was 27.75“ and 17.5 lb. He had been following his curve until 12 months. I nurse him before naps and bedtime and during the night. He eats mainly solids during the day and fluctuates in terms of amount eaten. He ate 17 oz of food the other day in one sitting (rice, chicken, coconut oil, and bone broth and oatmeal with coconut oil and avocado) but other days not as much. I am mainly concerned with his height. My preschooler also had this problem (with weight not height) and nursed until 2. I was also very small as a baby, so some is genetics, I know. He is now at a non worrisome weight. I don't think weaning will help since her argument is it's a meal replacement and he doesn't nurse like that anymore. However, I don't give my preschooler milk during meals for that exact reason, so I can see her point, even though everything I've read says don't wean for this reason. Advice?

    My sweet little boys turned one today. Thanks again everyone for the support. Breastfeeding twins has been one of the more challenging things I've done but I'm very thankful we worked through the difficult first months and now things are so much easier! For all of you nursing little babies, hang in there, get the support you need and keep at it. It's totally worth it.

    I have been EBF my now four month old with many struggles. My main one being an undiagnosed posterior tongue tie that was fixed almost two weeks ago. I've never really experienced nursing that wasn't painful and that makes me sad. It also always takes 30 mins to nurse and I can't nurse without my pillow ever.. Making it hard to leave the house still at 4 months. I go back to work next week part time. The dentist who lasered my babies TT said craniosacral therapy will help him. I have an appt tomorrow but I am not hopeful. His palate has become very high from the TT and he basically just nipple feeds (ouch) I am heartbroken I didn't have the experience I dreamed of and have shed many many tears. Please tell me the therapy will help. I don't know what else to do. I would LOVE to nurse until he weans but it's becoming more and more of a fantasy :( and he refuses a shield. (He initially used one) and I have seen six; yes six lactation consultants.

    I still breastfeed my 2.5 yr old almost 3 daughter. And I also co-sleep, for naps and for nighttime. I put her to sleep both times with the help of breastfeeding and for the most part I love it. I really cherish it. But lately she has become more like a toddler and she plays while I breastfeed and it takes sometimes an hr to over and hr to get her to settle down. That means I am breastfeeding her off an on during that period hoping she will drift off to sleep. And that can really wear on my nerves. I have things I would like to do. Most times it works and everything is fine. But some days like today I find myself having a meltdown, and it really upsets me to realize how I acted. I start yelling during something that is suppose to be quiet and relaxing, I take things out of her hands that she was playing with and throw them off the bed. Then I sometimes put my head in my hands and cry or just melt down slowly. She sees all this and it upsets her. And now I have the added worry of traumatizing her, and making breastfeeding not a pleasurable experience and all these emotions come up. Like losing the time I spend with her, not breastfeeding her anymore. And I just cry like right now typing this. I have so many emotions about it all. Breastfeeding is so close to my heart she is my only child and it might stay that way so I won't get to experience this again. I just feel bad for not keeping my composure when she tests my limits and she is not doing it...

    Hi everyone, I'm having some issues with my 5 week old. I've been having nipple pain due to a shallow latch from the start. I've done everything I can think of to improve it, but we're still having problems. I've seen 2 lactation consultants who both have said things look good, she's nursing correctly and it will likely get better within a couple weeks. I've tried many different positions, including laid back. I've done nipple sandwiches, etc. Sometimes I can get a deep latch to where I feel no pain, but she doesn't like it. She pulls back and chokes on the milk. I have one breast that has a fast flow and one that is rather slow. She breaks suction and chokes on both breasts. The breaking suction starts during let down and will happen randomly throughout the feeding. Not just a clicking, but actually losing the nipple and pulling it back in very quickly. She will do this several sucks in a row sometimes. I took her to have a posterior tongue tie and lip tie released last week and I haven't seen much improvement. She is gaining weight well and having plenty of wet and dirty diapers so I know up until this point at least that she is getting enough milk. One of my current concerns is over the past couple of days she has not been swallowing as much on my "slow flow" breast. I don't think she's transferring the milk as much as she was before. She will suck away and I will hear a swallow every 8-10 sucks or so, sometimes she gets irritated and pulls off crying. I...

    Hello. I have a month-old baby boy. We started out with some minor nursing issues—my nipples are big for his mouth, he didn't like it when I got engorged—but we quickly got into the swing of things in the first week. Then he started losing weight…and losing weight…and losing more weight. We also got thrush, which of course made it incredibly painful for me and I imagine for him as well to nurse. At 9 days, we ended up in the ER where he was tested for every possible infection. It turned out he had a urinary tract infection, which had decreased his appetite and made him listless. We ended up staying in the hospital for a week. At the beginning of our hospital stay, he was refusing to nurse, and we started finger-feeding him with an SNS or with a syringe and tubes. Meanwhile, I pumped about 10 times a day on the hospital's Medela Symphony. In the hospital, it was pretty much impossible to have any skin-to-skin contact and sleeping together was out of the question. I held him as much as I could and tried to latch him on every day with no luck. I eventually decided I would just focus on keeping my supply up and get him back on the breast when we got back home and were less stressed and uncomfortable. In the hospital, I saw four different lactation consultants, who told me we had a good latch, I was doing everything right as far as laid-back breastfeeding was concerned, and there was definitely hope that he could get back on the breast eventually, but they were no more...

    Hi everyone.. my son is 2 months old, im now back at work for about 3 weeks and pumping. I have been leaving 4 2.5oz bottles with his caregiver (in-laws). and they feel this isnt enough milk. when nursing my son eats just about every 2 hours/about 10 time a day. Im not sure if i should up his bottles to 3oz (would he still eat every 2 hours?) When my sister watches him she seems to do fine with feeding him 3 bottles of 2.5oz. Part of me feels they just want to feed him at every noise he makes... but im not sure when the right time would be to up his bottles, and would this affect him nursing every 2 hours? thanks everyone!! carla

    Back again with more problems -- just when I thought we were getting better. So I'm wondering if the bad latch has caused me mastitis. I don't think I have/had a plugged duct, but I do often get engorged on that side -- it used to be my "good" side. I was taking fenugreek to increase the flow on the "bad" side. I"m down to taking 1 capsule 3x a day. I was trying to wean slowly. I think it might be an infection from cracked nipples rather than plugged cut, but not sure. Today I've been getting engorged really quickly, and it's happened other times so I thought it was the fenugreek and each time cut back. I can't go more than an hour or so without being so full it's hard to latch the little guy. I now have fever and chills, and achiness. HOWEVER -- my daughter was sick with sore throat and fever three days ago, and her fever was as high as 102.6, which is where mine is right now. Maybe the general achiness is contributing to the fullness and pain? I'm guessing maybe not. My midwives said we should give it 24 hours in case it's viral, but I don't know what to do about this engorgement. I don't think it's plugged, so I worry about increasing by over-pumping. But I have no idea if he's eating enough from that side, because it's stuffing him. He's been spitting up a lot today and even choking on the spit-up (a rare occurrance). So I think it's pouring out of that side every time he nurses (as much as every 1.5 hours, as little as every 4 at night). I pumped...

    I have been breastfeeding my one month old baby all the way. I have overactive let-down on both sides but on my right, I can squeeze out some milk onto a washcloth before the feeding session and then feed normally. On my left though, the over active let-down continues for at least the first ten minutes of the session causing my baby to scream and fuss. I have tried to lie down and feed but this makes my baby uncomfortable and also is a temporary solution. I also have clogged ducts and blisters on my left side. The clogged ducts go away after using warm compresses during the feeding session but always come back before the next session. 1. I have been trying the block feeding method since last afternoon to reduce milk production on my left side. I have only been feeding on my right because of which my left side is hard as a rock and hurts a lot. Is this the right approach? Will it cause more clogged ducts? What do I do next? 2. Will the above technique cause my right side to produce more milk and eventually lead to clogged ducts? 3. How will I know when to stop block feeding? Will my left side soften? Will the clogged ducts resolve themselves?

    Hi, I'm just curious , has anyone ever experience that baby all of a sudden only wants to eat out of one breast per feeding? My daughter started doing this 2 days ago, she is 2 weeks old today. She will feed out of one breast for around 10 minutes, when she is done, I burp her, and proceed with the other breast, and she refuses to latch. So much to the point that she tries to throw up if I push her. And then after only 30 ministers or an hour top, she wakes up again hungry. Please help!

    We have coslept since birth, she is now 19months. Honestly, I love it, but my husband does not because he can't get good sleep and wants our sex life back. I am sympathetic because he is the provider and needs good sleep to work and sex for a healthy relationship :lol . And she still night nurses but only for a reassurance of "I know you're still there". I have put a toddler bed in our room to make it easier to get up if she cries. She can make it a few hours in the bed but eventually realizes I'm not there and I should just lay down there with her BUT I bring her into our bed. And when she is in her bed, I can't sleep good because I just keep thinking "I know as soon as I get to sleep she will wake up" :banghead I KNOW it's not just her, but me that needs to learn to let her sleep in her big girl bed :cry but how?!?!?!

    Hi! This is my first post here. :) I'm really struggling with balancing nursing my 8.5 month old at home vs. solids and bottles at daycare, and I'm hoping to get some advice (thank you in advance!). We're starting a new daycare in a couple weeks so I have the opportunity to give them a schedule that hopefully works better for all of us, but I'm not totally sure what that is. Here's what currently happens on a weekday (although it varies quite a bit still...I wish I could give you a better daily schedule but it's in flux. They just tried to change it up a bit yesterday so I'm not sure what that will mean!) Nurse before daycare at 7:30 (he is there from 8:30-4:10) 3 5 oz bottles at daycare, every 2-3 hours 2 meals at daycare, usually 1-2 pouches or jars of baby food

    I'm struggling with getting a decent schedule going with my almost 4 month old. Partly because I have a 3 year old and haven't been completely on top of things... He's pretty chunky, and I'm wondering how long he should be going between feedings... The whole wake up, feed, play, sleep thing isn't really happening...I try feeding upon waking...he eats one side sort of. Then, he gets angry before napping, so he eats the other side sort of (1 and a half hours later)...Decent naps...1 1/2 hours to 2... Can anyone offer me any insight on this? Thanks...kinda driving me crazy! (Goes down at 6:30, 6:45...up at 9 or 9:30...then again at about 3 am...just FYI)

    My 10 week-old girl has always had the typical yellow and seedy poop. The frequency has also reduced to 2 or 3 times a day but with larger amount recently, compared to the first few weeks. However I returned to work this week, and she has started to take pumped breast milk stored in the fridge. Her poop has become less seedy although still yellow, and she also poops more often. I'm worried if our way of taking pumped breast milk is not right? Does it imply she is not taking enough hindmilk? She is reluctant to take the bottle, and always fusses for about 5-10 min before taking the bottle. So she did end up nursing less frequently in the day. Does this mean anything? Thanks!

    My little boy is 6 weeks old. From the start we've had all sorts of troubles with feeding. I'm going to write down everything as I'm not even sure what the real problem is any more or where to go from here... At the very start, he slept 7 hours straight after the birth, couldn't wake him at all and wasn't interested in feeding.. so we had a late start. Then my nipples got sore and were bleeding, so painful but kept feeding him on demand (every hour or so the first few days with a few longer breaks). My milk came in, had tons of it, fed well but baby was only going poop every 3 or 4 days (a big poop nonetheless!) and it was green! I read it could be a foremilk/hindmilk imbalance and tried to block feed. Big mistake - yes, his poop when yellow, although still only went every 3-4 days, but my supply dropped and I didn't realise until one day I thought I felt a bit empty. Friends assured me this is normal once the supply regulates. I was nervous and called in an IBCLC who told me not to block feed, and to pump after every feed and finger feed it back. The baby also had a weak suck and needed practice, plus the latch was a little shallow. His weight gain was good though (a mystery, as he for sure wasn't getting what he needed from me). Here's one problem with the latch. I have very small (almost flat) breasts with small areolas. A comfortable latch for me and the baby takes in all the areola but baby's mouth is still quite small. The latch the LC showed me was far deeper,...

    I've been nursing my LO and supplementing 2oz twice a day if needed because I'm only able to use one of my breast the other was damaged when I had a lumpectomy. He weighed 7lb2oz when born we left the hospital he was 6lb 11oz and at 3weeks he weighs 8lbs 6oz he's gaining well .My problem is my LO recently started pulling at the nipple and fussing while nursing he'll nurse for a 5min then begins to tug and I have to break the latch this has cause my nipple to be real sore and painful at time to latch him . This doesn't happen at every feeding I say two to three times a day he nurses every two to three hours. He also is very gassy the supplement I use gerber soothe for gassy . I'm not sure what would be causing him to act this way is it something I'm eating reflux or growth spurt ....????

    Hi mammas My DS2 is now three weeks old. Wondering if I should be doing something about his tummy ache. He is getting more gassy and uncomfortable. Today he woke up at 8.30am to start the day with two small vomits and didn't sleep again until midday! He was crying during the morning between feeds and noticeably uncomfortable pulling his legs up every time I put him down. He was exhausted by lunch time and conked out. He has recently started pulling/stretching the nipple during feeds when he has the tummy pain. Which really hurts!

    I work full time and my 15 month old daughter has been in daycare since she was 5 months. She started "solids" (really, just licking things and making funny faces) at 6 months and now eats snacks and meals. When she's at daycare, she gets a 2-3 ounce cup of breastmilk either with lunch or afternoon snack. Whether I pump twice while at work, or just once, I get a total of around 2-3 ounces. I used to have massive oversupply, but it seems like that's where my supply is at for now. On days I work, she breastfeeds 3 times a day: morning wake up and twice in the evening (before dinner, and before bed). BUT, when she and I are together on weekends, she's still only been nursing 3 times - morning wake up, early afternoon, and before bed (she drops the pre-dinner one). A couple of nights a week, she wakes up around 4am for an extra nursing session and then falls back asleep but most nights she sleeps through until ~5/5:30am. On a day where she suddenly wants extra nursing (mid-morning AND early afternoon nap; or early afternoon + pre-dinner + pre-bed) I don't have enough milk. It seems like she can barely get anything out for the mid-morning snack. She gives me sad lip, frantically baby-signs "milk" and "more" at me, and then cries hysterically. I feel awful. Last night (after nursing 3 times earlier in the day), I ran out of milk during her pre-bed nursing of all times! She was a little upset at first, but eventually snuggled up for story time. I'm torn between trying...

    My son is almost 4 months old and weight gain is great. I'm still exclusively breastfeeding :thumbsup I've posted on here before and I believe I had an OALD issue in the beginning, but with your guys' help I remedied the situation.. About a month ago my little guy got a cold from everyone else here in the house. After his cold went away, he developed an ear infection (tugging at ears at night and fussy) which he was put on amoxicillin for. While on the Rx he got greenish stools but seemed ok otherwise. His poo returned to normal (yellow, curdy). Moving on to current day... for the past week he has had green stools and sometimes mucousy...and he is extreeeemely fussy at night. I'm talking every hour waking up, tossing and turning, grabbing at hair and ears, crying like he's in tummy pain. Not just the whimpering and rooting like he usually does...I'll pick him up (we co-sleep) and soothe him, and then he'll immediately want to eat. After he's done he'll fall asleep and an hour later same thing. This goes on the entire night and I'm so exhausted. I'm a bear during the day. He's never done this before. Also, during the day sometimes he doesn't want to eat until I stand up and kinda rock him and then he'll latch on. We have been back and forth to dr and he doesn't have another ear infection. So I'm stumped. Any help why poo would be green? He doesn't have a rash or excessive spitting up but still wondering if maybe an intolerance? Teething? Reflux? Thank you so much for...

    My baby is 11 days old, and I am a first time Mom. I want to breast feed so badly. I came into this prepared, or so I thought. I took classes, read books, and made friends with other breast feeding Mammas. I asked for skin to skin immediately. I used the lactation consultants everyday in the hospital...a 5 day stay. I sadly ended up with severe pregnancy induced hypertension, and was on Mag Sulfate that made baby and I both sluggish. Then we struggled with really high bilirubin, which also made baby lethargic. I was having to pump, feed, and supplement feed with my own milk like crazy. Being a first timer at everything I trusted all advice and was spoon, cup, and oral syringe feeding. The lactation consultants thought all was going well, but that the baby was just sleepy during feeds due to the Mag and Bili. The pediatrician wanted me to up my supplementing due to Bili levels, and I am now using a Calma Medela bottle since baby had to has to really work at it, after he only gets it after he has been at the breast first. He has been supplementing between 1 to 2.5 ounces after each feed with my pumped milk. Last night he fussed at my breast for almost 4 hours pretty much straight, inconsolable. I was trying to get rid of the supplementing now that Bili levels are coming down. I now think that with all the supplementing he was never getting much from me, and that is why he is so sleepy at the breast. I can go into the clinic Monday.. but what do I do? Any help appreciated!...

    My newborn is one month old and I'm continuing to have issues with nipple/breast pain. The facts: -baby is gaining weight fine -I had mastitis at 5 days pp that seemed to resolve itself quickly w/antibiotics -baby seems to enjoy breastfeeding (latches right away, stays on unless let down is too strong, seems satisfied afterwards) -other than the pain, no signs of thrush in myself or baby -signs of a good latch: fish lips, as much aereola in his mouth as will fit -sign of a bad latch: nipple is occasionally misshapen (crease or lipstick) after There is an initial sting during latching but otherwise breastfeeding itself isn't terribly uncomfortable - the pain comes after. Immediately after feeding, my nipples just feel very sensitive. Five to thirty minutes after however, they start to burn/sting/throb. This will last pretty much the entire time until the next feed. My nipples have NO cracks or bleeding; they look fine. There is also no color change after feeding (unless there is a crease, in which case the crease is white and changes back to pink within minutes of unlatching). My breasts as a whole are tender as well, much like during PMS.

    My DS had his first birthday a couple of days back and I want to thank all the moms on this forum. Without you I would not have made it so far. In the first 3 months nursing was very hard as I had oversupply and overactive letdown, I did post a couple of times but I mostly lurked...all night..nursing the baby and reading all the entries. I did not think I will make it to 6 months, now I am planning to let my son self-wean!

    Hi everyone my daughter (5 months) stopped nursing except for one feeding on one side once a day. I know its weird. So I started pumping and taking fenugreek pills. I was wondering if you can take too much fenugreek in a day??? I have been taking 3 pills 3 times a day. Also I was wondering if anyone takes anything with the fenugreek??? I also started drinking mothers milk tea. I drink 4/5 liters of water a day and eat a good amount of protein. So I am just trying to see if anyone has any other suggestions....thanks so much!!!!
