    Re: Dropping first feed?

    In your situation, I would at least try dropping the bottle and simply nursing. I would not try to forgo the feeding, because your baby most likely isn't ready for that. In my experience, the...

    Re: Nursing strike, should I wean?

    The best way to wean is slowly. Trying to wean too quickly increases the risk of problems like engorgement, plugged ducts, and mastitis. So even though pumping is exhausting, I think you have to...

    Re: Nursing strike, should I wean?

    When to wean is one of those questions that we can't answer for you. Only you know whether or not you really want to continue to nurse!

    If you're on the fence, I would at the very least pump so...

  10. Re: going on three months. when to start rice cereal?

    IMO, Babycenter is kind of the bottom of the internet barrel when it comes to getting information about baby care, development, and feeding. Especially if you are reading the comments. I know this...
  11. Re: What if freezer lost electricity for a while

    My understanding is that as long as the milk is still frozen, there's no need to toss the milk. If it is totally defrosted, then you have to use it up ASAP.
  12. Re: going on three months. when to start rice cereal?

    I am curious where you read this, because such early introduction of solids is no longer recommended. The American Academy of Pediatrics section on breastfeeding recommends that solids be introduced...

    Re: Biological nuturing ?

    For public nursing, I suggest a supportive bra and a well-stuffed diaper bag. The diaper bag doubles as an on-the-go pillow on which you can rest your hand or the baby, and the bra- if you can find...

    Re: posterior tongue tie

    Do you have a scale for home use? Weighing the baby at the LC's office is great, and it's terrific that you have done so more than once. But isolated weigh-ins don't tell you enough. They helped...

    Good suggestions from Maddieb. I'd also suggest having her rechecked for tongue and lip ties. The soreness and loss of suction makes me think that a tie might have been missed, and having someone...
