    Re: Dairy-free suggestions

    I'm dairy free as well due to absorption issues. Also gluten free. We eat and use a lot of almond product around here. Almond milk, almond flour, etc. I started taking a calcium supplement. It...

    Re: Weight Gain Issues

    Hey there- I have had a similar experience and just wanted to lend some support. My little guy is 6 months now and I am so happy that we are still breastfeeding, despite our difficulties. It sounds...

    Re: Failture to thrive?

    If u want to get away from the iron supplement and boost solids, you can give more iron-rich foods too. Beef liver and egg yolks are always good. Beef broth is great too- use the bones with all the...
  6. Brown stringy substance in puke

    This may not be a direct breast feeding question but I am still exclusively breast feeding so I thought maybe I'd try here. My LO is five months old and for the last three days he has had one episode...
  7. Re: Help! One breast has stopped producing!

    I am having the same issue but my LO is only 5 months and I've always only had just enough milk. We've worked out a lot of our breastfeeding issues but now it seems like there is less milk on the...
  8. Re: 3 month old hardly ever poops!

    I was talking about this with a naturalpath the other day and she mentioned that probiotics may make a difference in this situation. The theory behind it being that milk is fermenting in the gut and...
  9. Re: Lazy nurser or poor milk supply or something else?

    It kind of sounds like she is trying to re-establish your supply since there was a little trouble in the beginning. I don't think you'll have to be supplementing for long. Just make sure to keep...
  10. Re: Help me teach my 7 month old to latch

    I've taken the mother's milk special blend and I love it. I believe that it has been the difference in being able to EBF. It helps stimulate the tissues needed to get the supply going.

    Re: Update-milk allergy?

    I would say that as a whole, his group of health care professionals are not really that concerned. We'd all just like to see him fatten up a little bit. My husband and I are not small people. I'm ...
  13. Re: Latch Issues and Nipple Confusion (Concerned Father)

    Hi there and congrats! It's definitely not too late and don't give up! The first days can be really difficult. Was she losing a lot of weight? Because it can take 3 days for milk to come in...

    Update-milk allergy?

    Hi all,
    I've posted a few times on my son's slow weight gain. Yesterday I finally met with a certified LC and she was puzzled by our situation as well. Being that my son has literally nothing else...

    Re: Could exercise affect supply?

    Thanks. To me it doesn't look like he has a tongue tied latch but I am now talking to an LC. I just want my baby to thrive and I feel so bad he's struggling. I feel like such a failure. Like all the...

    Re: Could exercise affect supply?

    I am not doing bottles and have a very difficult time pumping. I tried around 8 weeks to have a stash in the fridge but the effort wasn't worth the reward. Your idea is very interesting tho and one I...

    Re: Could exercise affect supply?

    To add, I think my midwife was saying that the cradle cap could be affecting weight gain because his body is putting so much energy into the cradle cap. He's had swollen lymph nodes on the back of...

    Re: Could exercise affect supply?

    Ok thanks. I may get a third opinion on the tongue tie. Well fourth actually. My midwife and new doc say he has a slight tongue tie but a good latch. My previous pediatrician said it was fine. I...

    Re: Could exercise affect supply?

    Sorry I've been trying to reply but I kept getting login errors. Our story is quite lengthy I'm afraid. He was 7lbs 9oz at birth and took two weeks to get back up to that. Then at his one month appt...

    Could exercise affect supply?

    So I have had a slow gainer from the beginning but now that I've gotten back into exercising it seems that his weight gain has slowed even more. I do pretty intense exercise about 5x/wk. I have also...

    Re: Slow weight gain

    My baby fell asleep sometimes in the early weeks and I also have a slow gainer. If you are sleeping skin to skin then try changing her diaper to wake her up. If not, undress her. Sometimes babies are...
  22. Re: 3 mo very fidgety and fussy during feedings. Suggestions

    I should add that LO doesn't cry or fuss, just turns his head, scratches at his head a little and re-latches. This happens more in the beginning and then tapers off.
  23. Re: 3 mo very fidgety and fussy during feedings. Suggestions

    Did this forum continue anywhere? I have this same issue and my baby is showing early signs of teething. Do u have any suggestions?

    Re: Breastfeeding Products Help

    I bought my nursing bras from target and I love them. They are inexpensive and the material is really soft. Motherlove nipple cream is great as well.
  25. Re: Weird new issues w baby at feeds, super confused&freaked

    I would suggest seeing a chiropractor or a cranial sacral therapist. They can adjust the baby's jaw very softly and usually the symptoms you're describing are fixed. I had a similar situation when I...
