    Oh and today she's at daycare so I'll be seeing how she is after work today :/ but atleast her njght feedings she took. Her second one without even fighting so maybe she just is getting more used to the bottle? Idk but I hope I can keep bfing her too it's just easier then pumping at home too! However if this is the case and she's preferring the bottle all the sudden I will keep Pumping so she gets breastmklk but I hope she is just being temperamental lol

    So I've been back to work for quite some time now maybe a month. Been pumping and my girl gets bottle fed when I'm working. I do work full time. Then when I'm home with her I breastfeed her. She used the tommee tippee slow flow bottle and so far going between the two has been fine. However yesterday after being home and bottle fed with my husband she had a long 3 hour nap so it had been some time since she ate- like 6 hours I think so I knew she had to be hungry! Immediately when I put her down to feed her she was pulling back didn't even latxh and was just upset! Like she didn't wanna eat. Tried again same thing. Tried the bottle and she guzzled it!! She ate just fine the night before with me. Could she be preferring the bottle now do you think?? I tried feeding her during her nightly feeding and same thing. But as my husband was getting a bottle I got her to eat but w her sitting more upright- which I tried earlier too. Then her second night feeding she ate just fine but again kept her more upright just bc I was afraid to try and lay her sideways! (Didn't have my pump at home lol). Anyone experience anything like this? She has had a cold/cough bht seemed better yesterday. Also wasn't sure if she's been teething. Idk if any of these may affect feedings ? She's been slightly more fussy and drooling a lot and wanting to chew everything. Maybe she's just being temperamental? Idk but I felt so bad! She was getting so upset. That's why the first time I just said ok get a...

    Hi everyone, to cut tge long story short, my baby had a tongue tie release at 1 month. I started relactating at 2 months and he is now 3 months. However, I notice that his suction is still not strong enough to trigger let downs for the hindmilk. So my breasts are constantly not emptied, hence supply has gone stagnant. Does anyone have any idea on how I could help him strengthen and use his tongue muscle? He was bottle fed for a few wks after tongue tie as I stopped breastfeeding due to mastitis and abscess. Now we are using the SNS for all feeds but still it is different from breastfeeding because milk flows easily from the tube.

    Hi here are some suggestions for he MRI day. Make sure you will have opportunity to pump as needed. Not necessarily. Try an open cup, spoon, syringe, eyedropper. It does not have to be a bottle. Bottles are very new inventions and babies were given expressed milk or other liquids other ways for centuries before bottles were invented. There is no reason an infant should take a pacifier.

    Great news baby is doing so well! If giving up dairy is a hardship for you, you might try introducing it back into your diet after a while just to be sure it was not coincidence. Also some moms find that after several months baby either outgrows the allergy or can handle things like cheese but not 'straight' milk. Of course if you are ok with a no dairy diet, no need to go back to dairy.

    So she was weighed on a digital infant scale and the weight was the same! 11 lbs 4oz. Anyway it's been just four days of no dairy and her diapers are totally normal. That happened yesterday. And she has gained 6oz since the weight checks 4 days ago to 11 lbs 10oz which is a relief. And that was being weighed after a soaking wet diaper. She was having ridiculous green blowouts and now we are having normal size yellow ones again. My supply also seems to have gone up lot as I notice a lot more drinking from her. Anyway thanks again for the reply!

    Well now I'm a bit stressed. Just realized I am traveling to get an MRI just 3 weeks from today. I'll be gone for the entire day (at least 10-12 hours) so baby really needs to be comfortable with bottles by then. I pumped a little the last few days and attempted the practice bottles. The Dr. Browns she rejected 3 times. The Playtex nurser she took the first time and finished the entire oz, but then rejected the next 2 times. If it matters, she also won't take a pacifier. We've tried dozens of times and were only successful twice (and for only a couple minutes). My husband is at the store now picking up an Avent so we can try that.

    Since I had been working on my son's latch because he wouldn't latch properly, my nipples were destroyed. Lanolin didn't do anything for me so I tried coconut oil. The coconut oil didn't help heal it just softened out the scabs. So I tried using boob-ease and let me tell you that stuff works wonders. Compared to how my nipples were before they now look "beautiful" haha I totally recommend you giving it a try!

    My baby is 6 weeks old and for about the last 3 weeks he has been giving me trouble with breastfeeding. It's just been getting worse and worse. It's to the point now where he just won't latch on for more than a few seconds. He comes off and starts rooting with my nipple in his mouth. My supply is dropping because I can't get him to nurse and I'm trying to pump but I also have a 3 year old and I'm really struggling to find time to do it. I've been giving him breastmilk in a bottle which I know isn't helping the situation but I don't know what else to do if he won't breastfeed. I'm at such a loss. I saw a lactation consultant but it was no help. I'm going to go back one more time but after that I don't know. I want to breastfeed and I feel like I'm doing everything I can but it's just not working.

    I don't know why but pretty much the body of my post disappeared. My son wouldn't latch when he was born until 2 months he didn't get it and now at 3 months 1 week he fights everytime I think to feed him. I've been being him once he is so sleepy and practically sleep already. How long will this last? Do you have any tips on how to fix this?

    My left breast has always been my power producer and after a case of mastitis in my right breast around 3 weeks postpartum it got even worse. Since then my standard when pumping is 3+ oz on the left and 1 oz on the right. In an effort to even them out a bit I would initiate all breastfeeding sessions on my right to make sure that breast was always fully drained. Well starting about a week ago (3 months pp) my right breast has stopped triggering a let down, so now I always have to start on the left. And it's hard for me to tell if LO is even getting anything on the right once I switch him. Is there anyway to help my right side initiate a let down again? A little background...this is my 3rd child. I breastfed my first until 4 months but then I had to have brain surgery so we switched him to formula. My second breastfed for 15 months. I had heart surgery when I was 4 and I don't have much breast tissue in the lower part of my right breast where my scar is located. I got breast implants, under the muscle, when I was 16 to help even out my lopsidedness. I also got my nipples pierced when I was in college but I took them out 10+ years ago. I feel like my past is a recipe for disaster with breastfeeding but considering my success with my second son I would think I was still capable. Also, I work full-time so I pump 3x a day during the work week and usually nurse on my lunch break. I also pump after a morning feed on the weekends to help keep up my supply. Thanks...

    Hello Mommal and Maddieb, Last months we have cancelled the appointment with speech therapist, because my daughter became interested in food when she was around 14-15 months and she eats a lot now. She will be 16 months soon. Thank you so much!!!!

    The easiest way to see if it's right or wrong is to try. And the easiest way to try gradually without a bunch of ups and downs is to put a smaller mattress or futon on the floor in your own room. And put her to sleep there and then you will see if you are disturbing her sleep or not based on her night wakings while in her own space. And if she wake just as much, you can bring her back to bed. If she sleeps longer, great! And after she has established those sleep patterns you can work on moving her into her own room. And if not, when/if she does night wake, you only have to slither down to another matress in your own room rather than get up and walk into another room where she's alone. In terms of the rocking thing, have you tried rocking her to sleep in an actual rocking chair? Because that can be much less tiring while still being an effective way to get them to sleep. Good luck!
