    Re: Pacifiers..

    when is nursing considered to be established anyway??

    Is it *guaranteed* that when nursing is established and you give a bottle or pacifier, that baby wont get nipple confusion?
  3. Re: Will I ever NOT have to use Nipple Shield??

    we used the shield for only 4 days and i had no problems latching her on to the breast or anything. My advice would be to just keep trying at every feeding and not get too anxious about it. If she is...

    We went to the doctor today and he noticed DD (2 weeks old) has a white residue on her tongue. he commented though that it just looked like milk residue and not thrush. But then, i heard (on another...
  8. the reason for starting on breast you left off with???

    Common sense would tell me that the breast you start with would be more full than the one you left off with, so wouldn't it make sense to 'empty' the first one instead of the last?

    Hiccups?

    My 2 week old daughter has the hiccups after almost every feeding, and she gets SO angry...it is not particularly fun at 3am. Is there anyway i can prevent this, or is she too young for gripe water?

    doesn't seem to like my left side...?

    It's not that she doesn't nurse on my left side, because she definetly does. But it seems like she has more trouble latching on that side, and tends to make faces, crinkle her nose, until she...
