    Re: Resorting to pump, any advice?

    I think you need to let go of the obsession with her weight gain. Doctors use charts that were created from the weight ranges of formula-fed babies. These charts aren't as useful for measuring BF...

    Re: Awake time?

    Anything is possible and just when you think they are exhibiting a pattern, they change it up on you! Is he eating well? Plenty of wet diapers? And as pp mentioned, he could be fighting something.

    Re: Single pumping getting more milk...

    I agree with Erin. Do what works for you. I've heard of Ameda pumps but I've never seen one. Is yours an electric one? I only use a manual pump now (Avent) because my expensive electric pumps...

    Re: using breast pump

    Hi, I'm Andrea. I currently live in the UAE. You probably need a hospital grade pump as the others have mentioned. I would try contacting the large, mostly Western hospitals like American Hospital...

    I'm so sorry, I don't really have any resources that I can recommend to you. I had watched a number of videos on latching online and had read about how to correct a bad latch. I just tried the...

    Re: We used to latch fine, but now...

    Are you block-feeding her? I had OS/OALD with both of my babies and I had to block-feed in order to manage it. It should help reduce gassiness and allow your DD to get more hind milk.

    My son did...

    Re: Weight gain concern

    It sounds like she's doing just fine! Every baby is different. Some start packing on the weight and others gain more gradually. My son has been a skinny chicken since he was born. He gained steadily...

    Re: Green poop, potential oversupply

    Green poop and clicking/gulping sounds are definitely indications of an OS and over-active letdown (OALD). I would continue doing the block feeding because you don't want your baby to miss out on the...

    Re: Baby never pulls himself off

    The PP is right...newborn babies love being at the breast 24/7. Remember, they use it for comfort and sleep, not just as a source of food. As your baby gets stronger and his sleep cycles normalize a...

    Could be. Can you get yourself relaxed and imagine your baby's face while you pump?

    Re: Co-Sleeping How To with DH

    It is a bit harder, honestly. I currently have 38 FF/Gs and I have to push down on my breast to keep it from squashing into DD's nose. For this reason, I do switch sides on the bed (but my DH is not...

    Re: gulping & choking

    Yes, position can help a great deal. Reclining back and keeping baby in an upright position help A LOT with gulping and choking.

    When I fed DD today a few times, she gulped and then choked a bit...

    Re: gulping & choking

    I don't think it would hurt to try. If it alleviates the problem then you know the cause!
