  1. Does OALD and OS happen with every baby?

    I had major OALD and OS issues with my LO who is now 14 months. DH and I are trying to conceive #2, and I'm have to wonder - will this also be an issue with future babies?

    Re: Uses for pumped milk???

    So I'm wondering now if I can make some momsicles from frozen EBM....I know you're not supposed to refreeze it, but do you think it would be safe to thaw and refreeze as momsicles as long as I used...

    Re: Uses for pumped milk???

    My gosh you guys have so many good ideas!
    He doesn't take a bottle at all, so I just have been giving him a sippy cup to experiment with, doesn't drink much from it so I would hate to "waste" it...
  4. Re: Back to work, not able to pump enough, and possible milk allergy...

    I can only offer some advice based on my experience.
    My LO had a dairy allergy as well. From all I read it can take a couple weeks to a couple months to finally recover from it, but once I...

    Uses for pumped milk???

    I need some help here - my LO is almost 8 months and everything has been going wonderfully for the last 3 or so. Before that, I was overproducing and got caught in a cycle where I was pumping before...

    Re: I know its too early...

    I second this. My LO is actually 6.5 months old and we actually did try a little rice cereal and he reacted to it so poorly (up every hour with a stomach ache all night and was fussy all day) that...
  7. Re: Do solids usually give baby upset stomach?

    That's horrible! It's one thing to do it inadvertently, but quite another to do it knowingly! Unless maybe she wanted a polite way to refuse a cookie like she was on a diet or something. Still,...
  8. Re: Do solids usually give baby upset stomach?

    I'm glad you wrote this!!! My DS is 6.5 months and as a little "half birthday" celebration "cake" I gave him three teeny spoonfuls of rice cereal. He was up every hour that night with a tummy ache!...

    Re: No letdown with pump

    Thanks guys, I will try some of the things you suggested. This is just really odd for me because I actually had an overactive letdown and oversupply issues starting out, so when I used to pump...

    No letdown with pump

    Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem? I used to have no problem pumping and getting a letdown with it (and in fact I was overproducing for a time) but now for some reason whenever I...
  11. I cheated but I don't care :)

    I was going to attempt to regulate my supply through block feeding again (previous attempts were not successful), so to make sure I did it right, I called the free breastfeeding hotline sponsored by...

    Re: Is this a bad idea?

    OK, you guys have me convinced. I'll make another earnest go at the block feeding. What I had been doing: block feeds beginning at 3 hours and had worked up to 8 hrs. Pumped off a little foremilk...

    Re: Is this a bad idea?

    It must be that I did not realize when my production had decreased to the critical point that I needed to stop the block feeds? It seemed to happen overnight....maybe I'm a quitter but I just don't...

    Re: Is this a bad idea?

    I did for a little while, and saw no association/improvement so I don't think he has a problem with soy even tho lots of infants allergic to dairy are allergic to soy too. I will try again and look...

    Re: Is this a bad idea?

    I have eliminated all dairy from my diet since he was 1.5 months. DH's family is all mildly lactose intolerant.

    Is this a bad idea?

    DS and I have been coping with OALD and OS for almost 4 months now. I had tried block feeding to reduce my supply, however each time it had the effect of reducing my production TOO much (even though...
  17. Re: Suddenly shy let down - any thoughts?

    Thanks for the thoughts guys! I never thought it might be the pump...its the Medela pump in style. I wonder if there is any way to tell if it is wearing down other than not stimulating a let down? ...
  18. Suddenly shy let down - any thoughts?

    Hi there, this is my first time posting, but I am really stumped as to why this has started happening. I have OS/OALD and had previously been dealing with it by pumping through the first let down so...
