  1. Re: self-weaning or nursing strike? Help!

    Re: OALD & Fast Flow Nipples

    I actually don't have any advice. I am impressed by how well you know your baby and your body. You are doing a great job in my opinion, so just keep doing what you're doing. And certainly try the...
  3. Re: I think I messed up my supply.

  4. Re: HELP! decreasing milk supply

    Well, unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how you look at it), your milk turns to colostrum at a certain point in pregnancy. You can continue nursing as long as you like, but formula will...

  6. Re: Help. Am I losing my supply?

    Re: ceasing supplementation

    It sounds like you are feeling overwhelmed and scared that you are doing something that is not agreeing with your baby. I am sending you a big hug through the computer. It is wonderful that you are...

    Re: Green stools

    You are right to be concerned. Babies usually are back to their birthweight by 2 weeks, and gain 4-8 oz/week thereafter. When you say he has lots of stools, make sure you are only counting ones...

    Re: Gassy baby

    That sounds pretty normal to me, and I think you are handling it beautifully. As her digestive system matures, it will get better, and you can't really control how quickly that happens.
