  1. Re: finally latched but now refusing breast. Is it the thrush?

    That is tough, but you have already been through hell and back...so you can do it!!!

    I would suggest a lot of skin to skin to start. Have you tried nursing after baby is satiated? Consider trying...

    Re: Soreness and Milk Clots?

    I am not sure that the MD is correct when calling these clots "yeast". I would be very nervous that you have a bacterial infection. The fact that your nipples are so damaged could certainly set you...

    Re: Painful breastfeeding

    This is NOT normal. In the beginnning you may feel a small pull and tug, this is the normal occurance of the skin being pulled and stretched in a new way. Bleeding and scabbing is not okay, have you...

    Re: Engorgment issues

    For engorgement...stay away from warm compresses!!! Engorgement is swelling and heat can further exacerbate the swelling...between feeds use ice and then you can use warmth (when you latch baby) to...

    Re: Not really enjoying nursing...

    I must say that I am saddened and stunned by some of the reactions I received after my post. I was always under the assumption that LLL was a forum of support and encouragement for BF mothers. Are...

    Re: Not really enjoying nursing...

    Breastfeeding has NOTHING to do with mothering. There are so many wonderful moms (moms that I wish I could be) that do not give their babies BM. I commend you for doing something that you don't enjoy...
  11. Re: Should milk supply increase as baby gets older?

    The amount of milk needed for infant growth is estimated at 2.5 to 3 times their body weight in ounces per day for the first 6 months of life.

  12. Re: Montgomery Tubercles and breastfeeding

    I sincerely hope that the LC you saw in the hospital was not an IBCLC, if she was...that is just sad:cry.
    Of course, you can nurse on the side that has the inversion!!!!! And I am so happy you...
  13. Re: 10 week old and a very low BM supply what to do now?

    Certainly stop timing feeds. Allow baby to finish on one side, after he comes off on own/ or suck pattern slows, offer him the other breast. Also, you may want to consider pumping 8+ times a day. You...

    Re: Breast Pain, PLEASE HELP!!

    sounds like a possible mastitis...have feedings become spread out more, or are they irregular. It sounds like the plugged duct wasn't 100% resolved and is now back or becoming an inflammation.
  18. Re: Frequency of feedings at 2 months +

    Once your baby is back up to birthweight, and he is gaining accordingly, you do NOT have to wake him up to nurse anymore. More sleep for him, means more sleep for you. Make sure he is eating 8+ times...
  19. Re: Exclusively Expressed Breastmilk-What Bottles?

    How recently have you noticed this? I ask because around 6 weeks, babies go through a growth spurt. Symptoms of growth spurts inclide fussiness, crying, fatiques, insomnia etc.
  20. Re: Breastfeeding PROBLEMS PLEASE HELP

    Around 2 weeks of age, the extreme fullness (not engorement) that you felt early on in the PP period should decrease. You body is getting itself into a schedule of...
