    Re: so sad to let it go...

    Thanks for all the help

    I want to thank everyone for the help and advice. My LO is nursing like a champ. The bummer is I have to wean him because Monday I had a TIA (mini stroke) and the medications I will be taking for...

    Yeah -- my Houdini can escape very quickly. I'm sure he will mellow eventually!

    Re: 2 questions I forgot to ask doctor

    Wonderful link on treatment. I have found that going back to the football hold has given me the best control -- which is great for home -- awkward in public. And I never thought about the fact I...

    2 questions I forgot to ask doctor

    I had my 2 week post c-section check today and after coming home and taking a nap, I realized I forgot to ask a couple of questions. So I thought I'd ask for input here.

    Re: please think of us

    Best of luck and lots of hugs and prayers to you and your family. I hope all goes well.
  7. Re: Help, from bottle feeding to breast feeding.

    I used the medicine dropper to dribble formula on my nipple to try and teach my son to latch on. The side I did that with I am having better luck with than the side he originally latched on in the...

    Re: New question

    Last feeding when he lost interest in the football hold, I shifted him to the cradle and got a full 20 min out of the rt side for the first time in over a week. He nursed about 50 min total but...

    Re: Flat Nipples

    I actually had an easier time with my oldest daughter because of the flatter nipples. I did use the nipple shields as well. This is the 4th time around and it has been easier but more emotional...

    Re: New question

    I am supplementing about 8 ounces a day still. Down from 14 ounces a day. I have a small cut that is finally healing so latching on is much better. I am hoping to cut the supplementing down in the...

    Re: New question

    He is up to 8 lbs 4 oz so 6 oz in 7 days. Doc is happier and we go back in 2 weeks for another weight check.
  12. Re: What else to do, latching and low supply?

    I am having the same problem. I had to skip 3 feedings on the right due to soreness, but am going to try again tonight. I am desperate to get my supply back up.

    New question

    I am for some reason drying out already and my son is not even 2 weeks old. He is eating every 2-3 hours and now he is getting frustrated with me. He has a great latch on the left side and the...

    Re: Should I be worried?

    He dropped almost a half pound the first day and had 4 poopy diapers in his first 24 hours. He was delivered via c-section at 39 weeks 1 day, which is the longest I have ever been pregnant. I also...

    Re: Should I be worried?

    He was 9lbs 2 oz at birth and 7lbs 14 oz at 5 days. I've been trying hard to not feed formula this last 12 hours since he is successfully latching on both sides. I did break at 3 this am because I...

    Re: Should I be worried?

    I have thought of that too. I think I will be heading over to the hospital BF coordinator and get some reassurance.

    No mucus in stools that I can tell.

    Re: Should I be worried?

    Actually he is pooping about 14 times a day -- seedy which I know is good but we are changing him at the beginning of a feeding and the end too.

    I hate having to add the formula but he has lost...

    Should I be worried?

    I have a 7 day old son who has been dropping weight rapidly. I have him nursing anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes on a side at a time and then I still need to give him 2 oz of formula or he won't...
