    Oh and for pumping pain make sure flanges fit correctly and you are not pumping at too high a setting.

    Well that is a pain. Are you sure you can't just put a little on your finger or nipple for baby to suck off? Gassy and fussy is just too common to chalk up to being caused by anything you are doing. It is possible I guess, but just as possible it has nothing to do with it.

    Well I got the baby probiotics and it needs to be dissolved in liquid. So now I'm pumping and you're right, it hurts! I could only handle about 5 minutes but got 2 oz. I hope this helps. Now baby has been way more gassy and fussy the last few days and I wonder if it's caused by part of our treatment. She had me up from 1-5 this morning and is still crabby today.

    :ita with MaddieB. I am especially :ita that 3 months is when a lot of moms have a crisis of confidence, often related to changes in how their breasts feel, how fast their babies eat, and how the babies act at the breast. Aside from at-the-breast fussiness and fast feedings, do you have any other reasons to suspect low supply, like baby having poor diaper output? I'm really sorry that you and your baby aren't feeling well! I also am not sure if you have a viral illness or mastitis- though I would lean towards mastitis for mom and a cold for the baby- but regardless, the prescription for health and continued nursing is basically the same. "Empty breast, lots of rest!"

    Yes Dr. Jack Newman has been trying to alert the medical community about the issue of scale inaccuracy for years. I personally know a mom who had her young (couple months old iirc) baby weighed twice in one day, one at her baby's doctor's office and one at the WIC office, and the scales showed a 1/2 pound difference. As far as the green mucousy poops, I think the IBCLC may be able to help you figure out that puzzle as well. It may be an issue with dairy, but there are other possible causes. And sometimes that poop is just normal for that baby.

    I had no idea, I guess I never really thought about it. All they have are those balance scales! Well at least the LC should be able to do an accurate weight. Thanks so much for your help!
