    Re: Need some support!!

    Grrr! If I were in your shoes, I'd have a hard time not telling her off. :censored

    The most diplomatic way to go about it is just like PP have said "The doctor is so happy with his weight gain...

    Re: Not pumping enough -- HELP!

    Hadn't thought of calcium and magnesium. I'll try it! I read a little about estrogen dominance and some of it hits home. Definitely something to read more about. Thanks!!!!!

    Re: Please Help!

    Have you tried putting him to sleep at an incline? Like a wedge under his mattress or naps in a bouncy chair or swing? When DS had earaches or was teething, that always helped. Laying down flat...

    Re: "Cream" Amount

    Just took a look at what I have saved in the fridge for tomorrow and it looks about like what you have. Not sure if that's normal or not :shrug but at least it makes 2 of us! :thumbsup

    Re: Not pumping enough -- HELP!

    Yep, every 2 weeks. And they are brutal! (not just spotting) I'm on the mini-pill until DD stops nursing at night and then my OB said she'll put me on the regular pill. I've always had heavy, PMS...

    Not pumping enough -- HELP!

    My DD is 5 months old and within the last 6 weeks or so, my output while pumping has nosedived. I used to get 12-14 oz total, pumping 3 times a day at work. That was enough to feed her for the day...

    Re: Does it get easier?

    Don't worry about being naive. I was completely clueless with my first. My mom BF all 4 of us, we were all born completely natural, and she had 2 of us at home. So I was delusional enough to think...

    Re: Lack of support...hitting a wall

    I can guarantee you that formula does not make a baby sleep more. My son didn't sleep thru the night until he was almost 2 and he had formula only after about 5 months. Instead of BF all night...

    Re: not on the bottle...

    If you don't have to use a bottle then that's great! My brothers and I were all breastfed by my SAHM and I don't think I ever saw a bottle growing up. As PP said, there are other ways to feed a...

    Re: Teething?

    Mine started the same thing at around 3 months and a month later, no teeth yet. It seems to wax and wane, usually only lasting a day or two at a time. I can't decide if it's teething or if it's...

    Re: Happy dance!

    Thanks ladies! I have to say that these forums have been a huge help. Just knowing that someone else is dealing with the same issues makes it easier to keep going! :gvibes One year, here I come!
  12. Re: Not pumping what LO eats during day

    I'm sorry to hear that you are having this problem. I had it with my first and eventually, we ended up on formula. It sucks.:( PPs have already given you some great info. One thing I'll add is...

    Re: Snacking baby - help!

    Like PP said, very normal. My son literally nursed all night long for 6 weeks. I didn't want to cosleep (terrified I would roll over on him!) but it ended up being the only way that I could get any...

    Mine pops on and off a lot. She's older and starting to get easily distracted but it's pretty normal for all ages. It does slow things down a bit...

    Re: Back to work - what would you do?

    For a contigency plan, I have a back up can of formula that I got from the dr's office. So far, I've never had to touch it but in a pinch, I have it. I think we are all trying to help you keep from...

    Re: Back to work - what would you do?

    Who is keeping her while you are at work? Sometimes daycare or Grandma will overfeed a breastfed baby because they are used to formula fed babies who take larger bottles as time goes on. I know...

    Re: Moving the freezer stash

    Thanks for the tips! If I have any bubble wrap leftover, I might try wrapping them in that.

    My ped looked shocked at the 3 month appt when I said we were still breastfeeding! :yikes

    Mine was really sleepy in the beginning so I woke her up every 2-3 hours during the day and whenever I woke up feeling full and miserable at night. But around the 2 week mark she started waking...
  22. Re: Need encouragement, almost giving up

    My LO doesn't like my left breast as much either. We call the right one "The Chocolate Milk Side" :lol Just keep offering the left as much as she'll take it. I always have the most luck starting...

    Re: How many times does LO BF daily

    I BF on demand. She has put herself on her own schedule (for the most part) and it is pretty similar to the one yours is on. Except for last week when she was being especially piggy. :)
  24. Re: bad habit! end feeding with pacifier

    My DD does the same thing! I think she doesn't like to get any milk when all she wants to do is suck. A minute or 2 of binkie after a feed and she's fine. So far, it hasn't caused any issues.

    Moving the freezer stash

    Next week we are moving across the state and I'm going to have to move the freezer stash. It's going to be out of the freezer for at least 8 hours and sitting in my car in 90+ degree heat. Anyone...
