    Nipple shield question

    I was trying to explain the science of breastfeeding to another mother the other day and realized I had a question myself.
    When your little one gets sick and gives you their germs so you can make...

    Re: Co-Sleeping Questions

    Co-sleeping has been a lifesaver for us. It gives everyone a chance to get some sleep instead of pacing the halls at 2am. I started transitioning my son out of our bed around 9 months old. I would...

    Re: Nursing Strike?

    Sounds like a rough time, hang in there mama. Teething can make his gums really sensitive. Nursing brings a lot of blood to them and makes the swelling a bit worse. The cold bottle was probably...

    Stinky gas

    Hi ladies,

    Just a quick question. My 10 week old is EBF. Her gas is really stinky- kind of like sulfur. I don't remember my son being that fragrant at that age. Just curious if it's the norm...

    Re: nursing strike!

    Glad you found your answer. Honestly pumping 3 oz. sounds pretty good to me. A lot of women would love to be able to pump that much and remember it isn't reflective at all of how much they are...

    Re: getting 5 day old to eat

    Sounds like things are going well maybe try stopping the supplementing and just let her nurse on demand. As long as it is 8 -12 nursing sessions in 24 hours things should be fine. She'll wake up...

    Re: cosleeping

    Co-sleeping's wonderful, especially during that newborn phase where they nurse all night. When my son started needing to go to bed earlier than we did I started nursing him down in a rocking chair...

    Re: baby not into solids...what to do?

    Sounds like she's doing great. If you look at the calories on the back of a jar of baby food it's pretty startling. When you compare the great fats and calories in BM versus filling up on a few...

    Re: Poop....

    Watery is pretty normal in my opinion. Sounds like another brand of diapers may help though. Some types just leak on certain shapes. I think when they say BF babies poo isn't smelly it's in...

    Re: Can bad habits be fixed?

    First off, congratulations on your little one. Sounds like you're doing a great job. The clamping definitely sounds painful though. When you feel your letdown coming have you tried popping him off...

    When does it end??

    I should know this but my memory is a bit hazy. I had my little one 13 days ago and am still pretty engorged. She nurses about every two hours or less so that's not the issue. I still feel I could...
  13. Re: flow is slower on L than on Rt and causing problems with nursing

    Maybe try starting on the faster breast until you feel your letdown and then switch her over to the other side. It's a hard transition from bottles since she's used to instant gratification. I know...
  14. Re: Latching issue based on length of time between feedings?

    You could also try and latch him on a little earlier so he's not at that "I'm starving" stage. It's probably harder for him to focus on a wide latch when he's too hungry. Like the PP said,...

    Re: Spitting-Up

    My guess is teething as well, all that extra saliva runs down their throats and can upset their tummies to boot.

    Re: Still having prpblem...

    I believe there is a growth spurt around this age. If she's still having the wet diapers and her weight seems fine I wouldn't worry. Just offer the breast before the solids and use them as the...

    Re: Nipple shields...

    Will he nurse at all without it yet? Maybe try starting the session w/ it on and then remove it after a few minutes. Also trying without it when he's almost asleep and doesn't realize it, can work...

    Re: Fussy eater/frequent nurser

    Personally I wouldn't overthink it too much. She won't starve herself- if your supply does go down w/ pregnancy, she'll make up the difference herself. Remember toddlers are pros at being pickles-...

    Re: yellow milk?

    I haven't, but I've heard milk color can be directly related to foods you ate. Maybe there was a lot of beta caratine in there.

    Re: where exactly should the tongue be?

    Have you checked for tongue tie yet? Can his tongue actually extend past the bottom lip?

  21. Re: my baby wants bottle...refusing to nurse please help..

    You could try sleep nursing- slip it in when she's still groggy and doesn't realize it. You could also try wearing a nipple shield- maybe she has become accustomed to the feel of the nipple on the...
  22. Re: Can you overfeed a breastfed baby by compressing your breasts?

    I agree w/ the PP, I don't think you can overfeed a BF baby. They'll give you back the extras:drool. If you don't feel like you need the compressions anymore you could try and reduce that. Your...
  23. Re: ear infection? refusing to bf on one side...

    Couldn't hurt to get it checked out. Maybe try a different hold, like football or just lying down during the day too. My son went through a phase like that where he randomly refused one side except...

    Sounds like he's old enough. I would just be sure to do one type of berry at a time for a few days. That way you can check for allergic reactions. Some little ones get diaper rashes etc from...

    Have you tried nursing in different positions? Maybe one will be better for him than another. Also would some breast compressions help keep him more interested in the feeding? Good luck, try and...
