    Just like most of you, We are nursing our newborn every 3 hours. With Changing diaper/ burping and feeding itself are costing us 1+ hours every feed. So this normally leave us 1 hour of rest/sleep each time. 1 hour of sleep/rest for every 3hours all days&night, thats not even including other things like eating/cooking/cleaning for yourself. how u guys do it? the math doesn't add up here hah.:huh

    Good morning ladies! I'm looking for some ideas or maybe someone with the same cluster of symptoms that eventually got it figured out! My first daughter (who's now 2 y/o), was just over 9 lbs at birth. She was breastfed for the first 5 months or so (eventually switched to formula due to me not being able to pump often enough at work and my supply tanked.) She had a beautiful growth curve and has stayed in the high eighties to low nineties in percentile for weight and height. My second daughter is why I'm here. She was also a big girl at birth (but after the first one, that's what we expected!) She was 8 10 at birth, which put her at the 91st percentile. At every subsequent weigh-in, she's been dropping down the charts.

    My ds is 7 wks and is ebf on demand. I haven't been pumping either. Recently, my left breast has felt fuller than my right breast; my right breast actually feels really soft as if empty; my left brest isn't engorged per say, but more firm than the right - we can also say I have some lopsidedness going on as well. My question is: is this normal? Or is my left producing too much; or right not producing enough? Also, I tracked how much he was feeding yesterday which was 19 feeds in 24 hrs, 9 wet diapers plus 4 diapers with bowel movements (1 large amount and 2 really small amounts, like passing gas with a little bit of poop making its way out). Another potential problem is the time at the breast; each feed was no more than five minutes - also only on one side and at every hour! Once or twice was dream feeds which ranged between 10-40 min. I tried offering the other breast but he would not take it. Should I be concerned about the feeds being less than 5 min? He was gaining weight well from what Dr said, but that was 3 wks ago. Haven't had a weight check since.

    My DS is 3.5 months. He is EBF with the exception of 2 bottles/day of EBM while I work (Mon-Fri). He is happy, healthy, and an awesome little guy. I wear him sometimes while doing things around the house. Other times, he is perfectly content on his playmat. I console him when he cries (which isn't often), and I cuddle him as much as I can - having a 6yo girl already, I know how quickly the times goes. We bed share and he nurses through the night. All of which I love. Now to my gripe... I have friends and family members who have made comments on separate occasions that I am "going to make him a sissy". One family member's dog licked his hand and he got a little tearful - I don't want a strange dog licking MY hand either for the record! The comment was, "See, you've already made him a sissy." I know these comments aren't meant to be hurtful and they are said 1/2 jokingly. However, it pisses me off. How do I *respectfully* tell these folks to buzz off?? I know I'm doing what's best for my little guy, and in no way does that make him a sissy! Grrrrrrr:angrypin

    Hello! I'm a FTM and today is day one back at work :( When I was at home, I was EBF except would bottle feed 4oz at 2am and 5am (so he could get used to the bottle). When I pumped at those times I would usually get 4-5oz per pumping session. Well now that I'm back at work, I'm eliminating those pumpings and breastfeeding since he will be getting bottles all day when I am at work. My plan is to pump at the times he normally has been breastfeeding while at home. I would breastfeed him generally 3 times during the "work day". So today I get into work and I got the following amounts when I pumped: 9am - 4oz 12:30pm - 2.5oz 3:00pm - 2.75 oz.

    **BULLET POINTS BELOW, sorry for the length** Let me just start by saying my daughter appears to be healthiest (in terms of weight gain) and/or most content on a diet of hypoallergenic formula with expressed breastmilk as a supplement. However, as a FTM, I question my own instincts and frankly, am worried about depriving her of the nutrients in my milk. I am in desperate need of support and answers because I'm ready to give up on breastfeeding all together. To summarize, for the past 7 weeks, my 9 week old daughter has been screaming in extreme discomfort about 45 min to an hour after every meal, worsening at around 7 pm. I've been to the pediatrician numerous times (despite it being routinely dismissed as colic), tried all the remedies (gripe water, gas drops-- not effective), given my daughter Zantac for suspected reflux (didn't work), and switched around her formula (I have been supplementing since around week 1 due to poor weight gain). I saw ZERO results in terms of her post-meal distress until about 5 days ago when, after examining her mucousy stool with strings of blood, my doctor suggested I put her on hypoallergenic formula (Nutramigen). That night, I started exclusively feeding her the new formula & the results were instantaneous. She was a whole new baby. I essentially gave up on breastfeeding, but continued pumping a few times a day (unfortunately, my supply took a major hit). However, notwithstanding the results, I felt like by discontinuing...

    Hi all, I'm a first time poster and have been struggling with breastfeeding for the past few weeks. My daughter is 6 weeks as of tomorrow. She had an excellent latch per the LC at the hospital and we were off to a great start. 3 weeks ago she acutely had significantly decreased nursing times for a few days (she typically nurses both sides for a total for 20-25 min and would only nurse one side for 5-10 min). I developed mastitis (no known blocked duct, it seemed to pop up out of nowhere). The mastitis has been cleared up for about 1 1/2 weeks now, however I'm very paranoid about feeding times (I don't want to go through that again!). For the past 1-2 weeks my daughter has had times of extreme fussiness in the evening ~5-9 pm. My pediatrician diagnosed her with reflux and started her on ranitidine - I don't feel that it's helped. My daughter's behavior about 75% of evenings lately is that she'll latch, pull away screaming, root, latch again and pull away screaming some more. I'll place her near my breast and she'll immediately start to cry. I don't feel that it's too fast letdown since sometimes she will nurse for about 4-5 minutes then begin to scream. I don't feel that its undersupply as I can easily express milk. Her stomach does have increased gut sounds, however I'm not sure if its because she's been screaming and has swallowed more air than usual. These evenings that she refuses to eat I'll pump to be sure that I empty my breasts at least once in...

    The LC reiterated to me that my DD has a PTT and she is ineffectively transferring milk. I have noticed that she is getting more tired sucking every day. I was just curious, is there anybody out there that is successfully breastfeeding a baby with a tongue/lip tie? Reason I ask this is because she is no longer giving me pain when she latches and I really don't see why I need to get her PTT clipped if there's another way around the ineffective milk transfer. Do infants outgrow this?

    Hello Ladies, I’ve been BF my LO for almost 11 months and I provide expressed milk for daycare during the work week. I pump twice a day at work and within the last two weeks I’ve noticed that my pumping output has decreased to about 4 oz. a session, compared to 6-8 oz. for one session and 4 oz. for another. I eat oatmeal daily and take 3 capsules of fenugreek 2x/day during the work week. I think part of the reason why my output had been so high was because he was sleeping through the night and I’d nurse him on one side when he woke up around 6-6:30, causing the other side to essentially be engorged, which would create such a large output later. This proved to be really great in terms of providing supply for daycare, but now he’s having trouble sleeping through again (teeth I think), so I nurse him to get him to go back to sleep. Letting him cry it out hasn't been working, but I haven't been consistent either. I’ve been trying to add an extra pump session around 10 PM when I’m home, and I try to hold him off BF until he gets to daycare if he last nurses at 4 AM, so I can add a pump session around 7 AM. Is this the best way to get the most milk for daycare, or are there other strategies I should try? How soon after a nursing session can I pump? I feel like on the weekends this would help get a stash going. Will I produce more in a pumping session if I’m adding pumping sessions throughout the day? I never felt I could get this timing right. I can’t add extra...

    I have been exclusively breastfeeding my almost 6 month old but have over the past few months had issues with supply in the evening. Up until about month 4 I would pump after morning feed to have a little supply and have not been able to get more than a few drops any more. I'm thankful for what I was able to store because I've been having to give a bottle in the evenings with it. I have been on fenugreek for a little bit now and have not seen any increase. Oatmeal the same. It's an awful feeling having him cry and scream after he's not getting enough milk so I don't know once stored supply is gone if I need to do formal at night and is that really so bad? Also one breast is hardly producing any milk any more even though I try to keep him on it and pump it. I just hate feeling guilty about formula and how should that matter if my poor baby is hungry.

    Hello! I'm new here & confused - hoping someone can help me sort this out. My daughter is 3.5 months old and we have been fighting mucousy poops for about a month now. About a month ago, 2 days after LO's first round of 2 month vaccines, she started having frequently mucous stools. On two separate occasions, I saw visible blood in the stools (just a small, small streak). The color ranged from normal mustard yellow to bright-ish green. The only other "symptom" I noticed was that she had quite a sleep regression when the diapers started and went from sleeping a 6-7 hour stretch to 3-4 hour stretches, occasionally 5. I chalked this up to a growth spurt. I brought her to the doctor after they continued for about 12 days. At this point I had not seen any more visible blood but there was occult blood in the stool when tested. The doctor had me cut out all dairy and I have religiously - I've ready every label and I'm quite sure I didn't mess up or mistakenly eat any dairy or byproducts. So I've been dairy free for 2 weeks and the only improvement I've seen is that her stools are back to normal frequency (Ranging from once every other day to 2 per day). There is still quite a bit of mucus in most stools, occasionally green, still no visible blood. Her BMs are typically very explosive - she has frequent blowouts up the back and is always quite noisy! She had occult blood when they tested her diaper today. She has gained 14oz in 2 weeks so there is not an issue there. ...

    Hello everyone, I am hoping for some advice. I have been exclusively pumping my LO for 8 weeks now. She was unable to latch and nurse properly since she was born quite small and so pumping has become the best way to provide her nutrition. I started out pumping every 2hours around the clock and have since gradually increased my pumping sessions to every 5 hours. I typically make about 40-45oz a day, so consider my supply to be pretty good. My big concern is that my pumping sessions are incredibly long. I very rarely am able to pump for 20minutes as is recommended. My "short" sessions usually last about 40minutes and I often feel that I need to pump for at least an hour so I can get the breasts to empty. At 20minutes, I usually only have about 4oz and I tend to make closer to 8-12oz per session and so I don't want to stop pumping. Does anyone have suggestions to expedite pumping?

    My 4 wo, 10 lb son has started taking a bottle of BM in the evening. The bottles are typically 3.5 oz but he never seems satisfied. My husband feeds him and tries to do paced feeding, but LO is done with the bottle in less than 5 min. After he's done with the bottle he will cry for a while and seems to still be hungry. When he breastfeeds he will typically stay latched for over 30 min and falls asleep while still latched. Should we give him more in his bottle? Slow the bottle feeding down more? Any help is appreciated!

    I interviewed for a position as a patient care coordinator for an urgent care facility. If I get the job I will work 3 days (10 hour shift) per week. My baby is 5 months old and breastfeed. She will take a bottle with expressed milk perfectly. During the interview process I did not tell them I breastfeed, primarily because they can't ask personal information but can use information you voluntarily give to them against you. But with that if I get the position how do I inform them I need to pump? They don't even have set lunches just when it's slow they take turns. I'm very confused!! I've heard that I need to pump about when baby would nurse but I've also heard that it doesn't matter when you pump as long as you pump as many sessions as you would have missed. Like if she will miss 3 nursing sessions I could pump in morning before work at lunch and before bed. I will be exist let breastfeeding when at home and days off. I have heard some nurses say they do all their pumping in morning and at night that they don't have to pump at work but I'm so confused. I don't know when or. How to bring it up if I get the job. I don't want to end up quoting breastfeeding

    Hi everyone! Rationally what I am going through is probably normal, but I am EXAUSTED and, in the middle of the night, I'm starting to fantasize about giving formula so I can have a break! Son is 3 weeks today. Born 5 lbs 13 oz, was 6 lbs 7 oz at his 2 week check up. Great output with the requisite number of diapers per day. He eats every 1.5-3 hours, without fail and without me waking him up. He stayed 1 night in the NICU for low blood sugar, so got formula for about 24 hours but we immediately got with a lactation consultant and he hasn't had any supplemental formula since day 4, so it has been a couple of weeks.we used SNS and that probably helped. Feeding him on the right side almost doesn't hurt at all anymore, it still does on the left but it is getting better. Over the last few days he has started cluster feeding, and sometimes he is only not nursing for 20 minutes at a time. A few times he has nursed for 2 hours straight with only small 5 minute breaks in between! For the last 2 nights, he's done a round of cluster feeding, slept between about 11:30pm and 2:30am, nursed for 1-2 hours, gone back down at about 3:30am, and been up to eat again about 6. It doesn't sound that bad on paper, does it? But I'm exhausted. Seriously. I'll start sobbing in the middle of the night, because I'm just wiped out and feel like I can't hack it - and then of course doubts about whether or not I should have even HAD a baby creep in, which makes me feel guilty...cue the...

    Hi all, I have a question about supply. My daughter is 9 months and has been taking solids since 6 months. She eats like a beast and will eat anything we give her (last night we had lamb meatballs and she ate 2 of them...plus some rice, fruit, veggies). But, I feel like we're in this vicious cycle: my supply has really dropped (pumping about 2 oz every 3 hrs at work, don't get engorged or full after 6 hours of no breastfeeding at night, etc), so I feed her more solids to keep her from getting hungry. Then my supply drops further, so I feed her, etc, etc. I feel like I'm trying to make up for low production by feeding her meals. The problem is that 1) I'm afraid my supply will keep dropping to nil, requiring me to wean early; and 2) I really can't pump much anymore at work, and although I send a ton of solid food to her daycare, I have been asked twice to send more breastmilk because "she finishes it all". I am pumping very little, so I can't keep up with how much milk they want me to send. I know for a fact that they overfeed with bottles and have a very poor understanding of breastmilk supply (most of the babies are supplemented). My daughter is going through separation anxiety and can be a fussy, crying baby, so they want to soothe her any way they can. I just don't have enough milk to send her with more. We just started this daycare 3 weeks ago and I'm already having doubts. I know lots of people who use the same place and they love it, so I'm reluctant to just...

    My DD has been a slow gainer!! She is 4 months old and only weighs 10 lbs 12 oz! The ped keeps telling me I need to supplement because of her height! According to her height she should be 13 pounds!! My main question/concern is, if she has been off the chart or on the lower end, and she is maintaining that percentage, is it a major problem?? I feel like I am being pressured/bullied almost into supplementing because she is worried about developmental delays!! My child is rolling, holding her head up, and trying to sit up. I am truly getting aggravated! I have 2 older children that I had issues with and didn't get to breastfeed them past 5 and 7 weeks!! Because I have been successful this time, I am really NOT wanting to supplement at all!! Over the past month she has chunked up in my opinion! Also others have commented on how much she is filling out finally!! She has been a consistent slow gainer, never lost after original loss, but always gained!! I'm very confused and aggravated!! At her 4 month well check I was finally vocal about not wanting to supplement, so the suggestion now is spoon feed rice cereal or oatmeal mixed with formula 2x a day!! She is wanting LO to get the calories from the formula!! Help!!!

    My LO is cutting her first tooth. It's just barely poking through her gums, so it's not an issue yet but I'm afraid I won't be able to stand nursing her once her teeth really come in. I have dealt with recurrent clogged ducts, thrush, & shallow latch, so I'm no stranger to BFing pain, but the idea of teeth scraping against my nipple or biting really sleeves me out.

    I've been nursing him on demand since he was born, and taking him to swimming parent and tot class since he was three months old. Lately, he wants to nurse in the pool during class, and also at the lake or in the ocean. He will grab unto my bathing suit and fuss since I won't give it to him. If dad holds him and mommy goes some distance away he will stop fussing. I also have been nursing him in the bathtub. I enjoy nursing him in the tub and and have been doing it since he was about six months old. I worry I have gotten him hooked on nursing him whenever wherever, but I don't think he needs to have it then. I know he looks at that as comfort, but he is ok with dad who doesn't have the nursing breasts. I was thinking of signing him up for swimming lessons during the week while dad is at work, but now I'm not so sure since it might just turn into a fuss fest.

I've since been cutting out dairy and soy, as well as wheat.

    I have a one month old who seems to be downright lazy! She did not latch well in the hospital and I saw 8 different lactating consultants while I was there. Unfortunately, they each told me something new or different each time, leaving me confused and frustrated. My daughter is able to latch but wouldn't stay latched. I started using a nipple shield per their recommendation and it helped a very small amount. Due to her inability to remain latched, I began pumping and bottle feeding her my breastmilk. Since then, we have worked on breastfeeding every day. I had a lactating consultant come to my house which was helpful and my daughter appeared to be getting the hang of it. But then she stopped and would scream and scream and refuse it. It began to take an emotional toll on both of us and I started to feel like I was fighting my daughter 8-10 times a day. It was not a sweet, bonding time. So I backed off for a few days and when we started back she was doing great. Able to latch with or without the shield but seemed to like the shield a little more. She had times where she'd get an entire feed from me alone and I had so much hope that we were turning a corner. But each day is a struggle and 99% of the time she ends up screaming and crying and refusing the breast. Even when she is latching well, she'll stop and scream until I give up. It's like she wants the lazy way out.

    My 5 week old son will sleep for hours when laying next to me with my breast in his mouth but when I break the latch to lay him in his bed he wakes up and cries. It has gotten to the point where I'm in bed all day just so he can eat and sleep. He will sleep for no more than 30 minutes through out the day and cry some more but when I feed him two ounces of formula he will lay in his bed and look around and have a peaceful look on his face and sometimes fall asleep on his own! Family and friends tell me he's not eating enough to get full but when I manually pump I get two ounces from both breasts in 15 minutes or less. I'm not sure if maybe he is being under fed and that's why he cries so much when I only breast feed him because when I feed him the same amount of formula as I do with breast milk he seems happier. I have not been to the doctors to see if he's gained weight but he looks the same since he was last weighed at 8 pounds 9 ounces. Some one please help shed some light as to why my son is not happy at the breast. I will fall into a deep depression if I have to formula feed my first born child.

    Hi there! My question is regarding my 5 week old LO. since the beginning I have had issues. In the hospital she was having issues latching and two lactation consultants came in and said she had tongue tie and was sent home on formula with round the clock pumping, nipple shield, and very little education about where to go from there. After pediatrician and an ENT saw her they decided she didn't really have tongue tie, in fact it was so mild they said doing anything would cause more damage than not and she just may have difficulty latching. I went a few days later (still pumping every 2 hours and giving formula) to a LC and she helped me latch without the shield and begin BF but said to still keep pumping every 2-3 hours. Two days after I was going insane with still pumping and hurting with latching and saw another LC consultant 1 week after being discharged from the hospital who said stop pumping around the clock, the nipple shield was a stupid recommendation and may have hurt my supply. She also helped my latching difficulties. When LO was three weeks old I began my OS issues and OALD with her coughing and choking. I began block feeding 3 hours each side as well as reclined positions and began to see results in LO stool and longer stretches of sleep. *******Something to mention about my OALD. It does not spray across the room like I have been reading on websites and forums. I cannot catch it in the cloth. However if I hand express or LO is sucking is sprays. And if she has...

    I've been told and I've read I can relactate after drying up. I started trying to get my milk back about 2 weeks ago. I've been taking fenugreek and I've been drinking Mother's Milk tea. WIC let me borrow their electric pump which I've been using to pump every 2 to 3 hours. I'm completely dried up and haven't seen any drops since I started trying. I guess I should take a step back. I breastfed my baby girl for about 5 weeks. There were a few times I didn't have enough milk for her. One night she was so hungry, I had to give her some ready-made formula that I had from the doctors office. That was about when she was 2 weeks old. I pumped and gave her formula for another 3 weeks. When she was at her 4 week appointment, her doctor detected blood in her poop. He told me I had to change my diet because she had an allergy to milk protein and soy protein. I got so frustrated and stressed, I just gave up breastfeeding by 5 weeks and switched to a special formula. My baby girl is now just over 5 months old. I'm completely dried up. I read it will take about a month before I even see anything. I've done skin-to-skin. I've tried to get her to latch, but she ends up getting frustrated instead.Even when she's in a good mood. I pump all the time. I get these times where I'm so frustrated I'm not seeing any milk. :cry I just need to know if I'm even able to get it back. I don't want to get the drug that kick starts my milk supply. I want to start it back up naturally. I really...

Now im trying to stop giving her formula and just stick with the breast on demand but she'll stay on the breast for almost an hour and never seems satisfied. Ive tried pumping to see if i have milk and am able to get out around 2.5 oz. she seems so happy after i give her formula. I dont know what to do. I would hate to give up breastfeeding but she seems so happy with formula. Need help. :(

    Hi I'm about to have my 3rd child this month and was hoping to breastfeed for at least 6 weeks. I already have toddler twins and due to hectic life managing them and work I have let toenail fungal infection get out of hand. All toes are badly affected and I am aware I can't take prescribed oral medication for it while breastfeeding. However I'm wondering if I leave it untreated until I finish breastfeeding is it ok to breastfeed while I have the condition or is there anyway it would go through my system into milk and affect the baby. Thanks

    My 10 week old seems to have an allergy to wheat. I've notice with his poop (mucus and a few small specks of blood) and discomfort, gassiness. He otherwise is doing well on weight gain (was in the 95 percentile at his last visit). But he does have a lot of eye watering and both eyes are very crusty in the AM. Sometimes almost sealed shut. I can cut out wheat entirely, no problem, even though I will miss it. The concern I have is am I helping the allergy by not exposing him to it occasionally? I'd like for him to build a tolerance (if that's even possible), and it seems doing it through my breastmilk might be the gentlest way to do that. Has anyone had experience with a food allergy through BM? Has your chile grown out of it? Did you completely avoid it? Thank you!!!

    Below is our schedule for our 1 month old newborn, we are struggling with low breast milk and forcing us to provide formula but as times goes on the baby is getting more and more frustrated with the breast. we are not sure what we are doing wrong but as you can see, there is no time for anything else , Please take a look and give us any recommendations, does this look right? every 3 hours for feeding 1.Breast feeding for 40mins (we are guessing he is only taking 10-15ml max) 2.feeding formula 80 ml for (20mins) 3.burping for (20mins) 4.pump = 10-15ml (20mins)
