    Re: 4 Month Old Constipated

    The rice cereal is most likely what is constipating him. I would recommend backing off the cereal and the prune juice and just going back to BF exclusively until his system can handle the cereal.

    Re: 6 days and in so much pain!

    I second much of the information the others have given you. I would also like to ask you to consider that perhaps you need a bigger cup size on your bra? Sometimes if its too tight it can lead to...

    Re: Bleeding While BFing?

    I remember someone telling me that blood in the stool could be a sign of baby having a problem with dairy. :shrug I would definitely talk to you pedi about it.

    Re: 2nd time mom, 1st time BF

    It generally does ease as time goes but it takes several weeks for your supply to become established and baby goes through many growth spurts during that time. As for the breastpads I wore them for...

    Re: New in Breastfeeding

    The best way to tell if your baby is getting enough milk is the diaper out put. Count how many wet and poopy diapers he produces.
    5 - 6+ sopping wet diapers per day and 3 – 4+ dirty diapers per...

    Re: 15-month old won't eat any food

    Is your baby getting enough iron and stuff? I always thought that past a year they needed a balance of milk and solids. If he is keen on breads and cereals, does he eat pasta?

    Re: feeding while not feeling well?

    Could it be that she has gas? She might be feeling bad and trying to comfort suck. Have you tried massaging her tummy and bicycling her legs to help he pass the gas. This is just a thought.

    Re: Did your dr know much about BF?

    I had two doctors, on general and one who volunteered she time at the BFing support group in the area. I'll answer for both.

    - do you think your doc was knowledgeable about BF?

    Re: Devastated

    I would definitely call the doctor and see if there are other tests they can do to get to the bottom of this. It sounds as if you were doing everything you could for you baby. Don't blame yourself...

    Re: My baby is sick

    sitting in the bathroom with the shower running will help with the congestion as well. The steam loosens everything up.

    One thing I haven't seen mentioned (forgive me if I somehow missed it) is that if your wife replaces too many feedings with formula without pumping she could possibly put her supply at risk. Her...

    Re: I need some comforting....

    Frankly, I would change pediatricians. Just my 2 cents. You really can't overfeed a breastfed baby. Go with your gut.

    It honestly all depends on where you live. If you live somewhere where you can take baby outside for a few minutes of sun each day then I don't think you would need to give the drops. If, like me,...
