  1. Re: A Word of Encouragement if You're Struggling!

    I am so excited for you! You really have been working hard. It took about a month for my daughter to get up to speed, I would say. Her diapers were not as wet at first but have gotten progressively...
  2. Re: Medical issues told to stop nursing

    18 years ago I had a breast lump (adnoma) removed when my baby was 5 weeks old and I was breast feeding. (Not mastitis, but breast surgery nonetheless). Breastfed before and after surgery with the...
  3. Re: A Word of Encouragement if You're Struggling!

    That's so great to hear! It's amazing how you can work and work at it, and then one little thing will click just enough to let you know things can improve. For us, even after things started to get...
  4. Re: A Word of Encouragement if You're Struggling!

    Sometimes I would just take a break, like you do in the evening. It helped my stress level, and I figured as long as I was at least offering multiple times a day, I could take a break at some...
  5. Re: A Word of Encouragement if You're Struggling!

    We're at 3 months now! Yay!

    I think it never hurts to get more help.

    In retrospect, I think the thing that helped us most was just patience. My LC said that she thought DD just needed to grow...
  6. A Word of Encouragement if You're Struggling!

    Hi Moms! I just wanted to offer a word of encouragement if you're really struggling to make it all work. I'll just tell you my experience over the last 11 weeks - no two are exactly the same and I'm...
  7. Re: Please help! We're getting derailed!

    What a difference a couple days make! I think DD's pulling off mostly had to do with me trying to get her to eat when she wasn't ready. We're on our second day w/o bottles and I think she's doing...
  8. Please help! We're getting derailed!

    Hi! We are 4 weeks post tongue tie release. About a week ago, DD finally started latching (not well, but at least something) and nursing. By last Friday, she did 3.5 ounces from the breast! Yay! But...
  9. Re: 7 wo still not latching. Now what?

    So far, we have gone from nipple shield to accepting the breast. Did SNS to get her on the nipple shield. Today DD transferred about .7 ounces at support group - her best so far. We have tried laid...
  10. 7 wo still not latching. Now what?

    My 7 wo DD has is still not latching! She will go to the breast and chomp on my nipples, but does not transfer any milk. I do have very large nipples, which seem to be a problem for her. She also...

    Re: Nurturing while Pumping

    I'm glad to see I'm not alone! Not that I wish this on anyone... but at least I feel like I'm not nuts! Or that what's going on is our fault.

    He had craniosacral therapy yesterday (he loved it!)...

    Nurturing while Pumping

    It turns out my LO has some issues that I thought were just about BF, but it turns out it's about bottle feeding as well. At 2 mos. his weight is 2nd percentile. Both his ped. and a couple...

    Re: Craniosacral Therapy Question

    WOW! Your LO sounds just like mine! (Only mine's younger) DS had not BF in about a month, then we had CST 1x - next day he BF well for 15 min - which was huge for us! Over the past week he has gone...

    Re: My son refuses my breasts...help!

    I so understand what you are going through. 2 MO LO has been refusing to latch/suck/BF for about 4 weeks. I know how frustrated you must be, because I sure am!

    I'm trying to be grateful that I...

    I'm losing it still...

    Thank you everyone who has been so kind and helpful ... but I just want to crawl in bed and cry. Non-latching DS is making me crazy. He'll be 2 mos. this week.

    He has BF a little bit the last...

    Re: I'm really losing it...

    Progress? Yesterday LO BF for maybe 10-15 min. Not a great latch, but actual sucking and swallowing! He's done it a couple more times for just a few minutes since then.

    I don't want to go...
  17. Re: Exclusive Breastpumping / Oversupply

    I tried the full drainage/block feeding method to reduce my supply (google it). It worked really well - didn't believe it was possible after months of engorgement with DD#1. I felt we were headed in...

    Re: I'm really losing it...

    No further info on the palsy. It seems to be only his lower lip. It just looks kinda pinched. Nothing going on with eye, eyebrow, etc.

    I have a regular ped appt in about a week and will see what...

    Re: I'm really losing it...

    Ok, today's update. Took DS to see the osteopath. This is a new experience for me, so I hope I explain it well.

    Her opinion is that his lip (a little facial palsy), tight mouth, tight jaw, and...

    Re: I'm really losing it...

    We did, but it hasn't been effective bc he hasn't wanted to come to the breast. The shield can be full of milk (either from letdown or SNS) and he still won't suck.

    Thanks, though - it may be...

    All you nursing moms are awesome :) I don't know how some of you have made it through to the other side, where things finally start going smoothly.

    So, here the update: met with BF specialist...

    Re: I'm really losing it...

    I'm really happy to hear that she latched at 8 weeks! We're at 7 today - still no latch. But apparently it is still possible.

    It's so hard not to look back at all the things I wish had gone...

    Re: I'm really losing it...

    Thanks, everyone for your replies. You are giving me hope. It's been a tough couple days. We are trying with an SNS both with and without a nipple shield, but I have to say, no progress. It's mostly...
