    Re: How to Wean??

    And your baby is growing well despite nursing just 5x per day? If so, that points to you having a very high storage capacity. Most moms would need to nurse a minimum of 8x per day in order to meet...

    Re: How to Wean??

    Thanks for answering those questions!

    Here's how to wean:
    1. Choose one a single feeding and replace it with a bottle of formula.
    2. Wait several days for supply to adjust downwards.
    3....

    Re: Weight gain worry

    Can you have him come in to the lactation consultant or pediatrician with you? Sometimes reassurance from a professional is what it takes to get a dad on board with normal nursing.

    Re: How to Wean??

    Can you give us a little more information? It would help to know:
    - how old your baby is
    - how many times per day you are currently nursing
    - how long your workday is

    Re: Period back but irregular

    It's unlikely that increased nursing is responsible for this minor fluctuation in cycle length. I'd consider 8 days a totally normal variation.

    Do you have a copy of Taking Charge of Your...

    Re: Weight gain worry

    Is the decision to supplement something that you arrived at on your own, or did the LC or pediatrician recommend it?

    It's very unlikely that something is seriously wrong. Most issues with...

    Another impossible question! :)

    I would try it both ways and see what works better for you. I personally think it makes sense to try to the approach in which you reduce the amount of time you...

    Re: New onset green milk

    Some questions for you:

    1. What supplements are you taking?

    2. How does pumping feel?

    3. How many oz of milk is baby getting per hour when she is at daycare?

    4. Is she sleeping through...
  11. Re: Oversupply: One Step Forward, Two Steps Back?

    Fixing oversupply is definitely a "two steps forward, one step back" process. You're aiming for the overall trend to be in the direction of lower supply, and you try not to get discouraged by...

    Her poop is yellow, right? If she's having yellow poop, she is getting hindmilk. And just for the record, "not enough hindmilk" is not really a problem for babies. They can grow well- sometimes...
  13. Re: 5mo nipple preference developing over my 12 hour shifts

    I hate to say it, but it sounds like the issue is that baby is being overfed close to when you get home. And that's not a simple one to solve because it's not about something YOU have to do- it's...

    "Sad"? :eyebrow

    Sorry, but that sounds like a way to make you feel guilty. It would have been one thing if the caregiver had said that the baby still seemed hungry after finishing her bottle. ...

    Re: Travelling with baby

    Pump weaning works just the same way as regular weaning. The longer you go without removing milk from the breast, the more your body gets the message to reduce supply.

    Re: Weight gain worry

    So baby is being weighed on at least 2 different scales, correct? If so, you have to be very, very suspicious about apparent weight gain/loss. Differences in calibration between scales can be...

    Welcome to the forum!

    There's a good reason why we typically do not weigh babies every day, and that is that zooming in too close on the data can blind you to the overall pattern. You get so...

    Sure, both my kids have had this. Completely unrelated to breastfeeding, though. It was just a tummy bug.

    Re: Back to school. Pumping problems

    The best way to increase supply is to increase the frequency of milk removal from the breast. This means pumping more often and nursing more often, if possible. This will do more for you than any...
