    Re: thrush at 15 months?

    Yup - you were right! DS had hand, foot and mouth (for the 3rd time - UGH!) and his latch was off which is what caused my nips to hurt!

    Thanks for your help in figuring this out!

    He will eat puffs (I get the organic ones that dissolve in his mouth) and occasionally a few peas or a few bites of sweet potato - but he is not very interested in them. He definitely does better...

  12. Night nursing, co-sleeping and 8 month old

  18. Re: Tongue-tie snipped yesterday and domperidone

    I wouldn't say that my milk supply is "that low" - but I am a first time mom so I really don't know. My son is 6 weeks and 1 day old. When I pump I typically get about 1.5 ounces out of each breast...

  21. Re: 5 week old not gaining weight/nipple shield

    Thank you all for your comments and support! The LC I used is IBCLC certified and she also suggested having the frenulum clipped, but didn't think it was necessary 'yet'. I am certainly not opposed...
  22. Re: 5 week old not gaining weight/nipple shield

    I forgot to mention that he is peeing lots and only poops once per day but it is a BIG poop - filling and oozing out of his diaper. Some days I might get two poops, but never more than that. I am...
