  1. Re: help! pumping won't work and need to leave baby

    Hello, I've only used the pump a handful of times since I bought it 2 months ago, so I don't think it could be already worn out, but I have sure learned my lesson about not having milk already pumped...
  2. Re: help! pumping won't work and need to leave baby

    Thanks for the advice and the link. I finally ended up pumping, as PP suggested, while nursing baby on other breast. But I still couldn't get enough for a full feeding.

    I do have a hairline crack...
  3. help! pumping won't work and need to leave baby

    I've been pumping occasionally since my baby was about a month old. I use a manual Medela pump and have always been able to pump enough for one feeding. It's been a couple of weeks since I last...

    Re: Bathing with Baby

    I've been able to successfully nurse in the bath with other positions than cradle. You can do football clutch too, or, if you have the water high enough, you can try sitting up with baby almost...

    Re: pumping less than ever

    I have the same question too. I only pump for the occasional outing, about twice a week. When baby was 1-2 months I could easily pump 4 oz or more from one breast in about 10 minutes. Now that she's...

    Re: night engorgement

    Well as the topic starter I can't give you any advice on when it will go away, because since I wrote the post my baby went back to nursing every 3 hours at night! So no engorgement here. However, I...

    Re: night engorgement

    I was all prepared to pump at night if necessary, or to try cabbage leaves, but my baby suddenly switched gears and went back to waking every 3 hours for the past 2 nights! That being said, my...
  8. Re: 3 mo old eating only 5-7 times a day! worried.

    Thanks for the words of encouragement. As if I weren't already confused enough, my baby threw me for a loop by waking every 3 hours to nurse last night! One night, 9.5 hour stretch, next night, 3...
  9. 3 mo old eating only 5-7 times a day! worried.

    Over the past couple of weeks, my 3 month old baby went from eating every 2-3 hours to every 3-5 hours during the day and up to 9 hour stretches at night. I've been counting the number of feedings...

    Re: night engorgement

    Thanks for the tip—do I put the leaves on when I go to bed, to prevent, or do I put them on once my breasts become engorged?

    night engorgement

    For the past week or so my 3 month old daughter has started to sleep long stretches at night, from 6 to 9 hours at a time. She nurses about every 3-4 hours during the day, so when she goes more than...

    Re: do I have an oversupply problem?

    Hi and thanks to everyone that has replied. We visited our pediatrician Friday to weigh DD and she gained nearly 400 grams in 10 days, which is even above average, so he told us not to worry at all...

    Re: do I have an oversupply problem?

    Olivia, thanks for your message. I think we will try to limit the pacifier too. My husband gives it too easily every time she's cranky, but I really don't like using it and I suspect it may be...

    Re: do I have an oversupply problem?

    Nope, no white spots in her mouth. Today I was feeding her in the regular cradle position and she not only let go a lot, but coughed and sputtered a little. Last night I nursed her in the lying down...

    Re: do I have an oversupply problem?

    Actually, she has been pulling off pretty much every feeding for over a week now. It seems to be her new MO. I wonder if it's the pacifier that could be influencing the way she sucks. She's been...

    Re: do I have an oversupply problem?

    Dear Carol, thanks so much for your advice. I do think sometimes my baby needs to suck and doesn't want the milk that comes with it, and thus cries. It's at times like these that I give her a...

    Hello everyone, this is my first post. I'm hoping you can offer some advice to a first time mom.

    My baby is 9 weeks old and for the past 10 days or so has been having problems nursing. From birth...
