  1. Re: '6 Months Old Now, you can do it too!'

    I guess stop pumping to improve supply when you feel your supply is ok... I'm not sure there is any hard and fast rule on it!

    (P.S from the last thread; store kirkland peanut butter upside down,...
  2. Re: doctor's visit left me angry and wondering...am I wrong?

    I have a 'friend' who is a health visitor who asked me about my 9 month old and her sleeping habits and was horrified that the feeds every couple of hours still, telling me she doesn't need it......

    Re: Still battling thrush!!! Help

    Have you tried 'breast angels' or a cheaper version would be sticking a couple of silver spoons in your bra, I have a friend who swears these helped sort her recurrent thrush.

    Needs to be actual...
  4. Re: Continuation of weight gain/supply struggle

    This is a really long thread :)

    Natural peanut butter is great and had no sugar in it. I actually try to get hold of Californian peanut butter from Costco as it's better than any British stuff I...
  5. Re: Continuation of weight gain/supply struggle

    Sounds like you are having fun!

    We did eggs at 6 months and was told after not to, but it was fine for us! We did peanut butter at 7 months as I eat a lot of it so figured she's probably had it in...

    Re: blowing bubbles in the milk

    If/when a baby learns to blow raspberries it is quite normal for them to attempt it mid feed.... Is this what you mean? :)

    Re: 4 month old poor weight gain

    Just to add to what PP's have said has he been assessed for tongue tie or lip tie or a weak/disorganized suck? You may need a dentist or speech therapist to take a look but a fellow American would be...

    Take a nice warm bath together, hot flannels on the affected area...
  10. Re: Continuation of weight gain/supply struggle

    Yay for good doctor finally! You could do with finding a way to nurse/pump that lump out :s Could you do it while he sleeps or do you have a sling that you could use in a position that would allow...

    Re: Mirena IUD and breastfeeding

    It might not be the IUD stopping your periods it might be the breastfeeding... Not sure there is any clear cut way to tell! (Unless they return at some point then it was the breastfeeding!)
  12. Re: Continuation of weight gain/supply struggle

    I guess solids will only help if he is interested... But it will happen eventually :)

    I do have 1 friend who has nursed 5 children and her 5th just isn't that bothered by eating and has always...

    Am so glad it improved for you :)
  14. Re: Continuation of weight gain/supply struggle

    Is he dropping on the chart tho? Babies gain less as they grow so while a newborn might put on an ounce a day that wouldn't be the case for the same baby at 6 months. I don't know enough about...
  15. Re: Continuation of weight gain/supply struggle

    A multivitamin shouldn't do any harm so not sure there is a downside of trying it. How much was the weight gain for the week before you stopped supplements, is there much difference?

    His feeds do...

    Re: My 3 month old prefers a bottle.

    How much and how often is milk being given in a bottle, is the teat slow flowing and are bottles being given in a paced breastfeeding friendly manner?

    Smaller bottles given in a paced manner can...
  18. Re: Continuation of weight gain/supply struggle

    Peanut Butter is what my little girls changed into around 5 months... As long as it isn't pellets it should be fine.

    I do wonder if the first day or so he was so used to having a couple of ounces...
  19. Re: Continuation of weight gain/supply struggle

    Have you ever discussed reflux or iron levels with a Paed? I would have thought they would have checked iron levels if they were concerned with weight gain :s
  20. Re: totally consumed--baby only taking bottle

    Has your daughter been checked for tongue and lip tie? As these can affect feeding.

    I would second having a professional check milk transfer. We had milk transfer issues for the first four months...
  21. Re: Continuation of weight gain/supply struggle

    It'll get easier! We've been fully off supplements for nearly 2 months and now I only get occasional paranoia overy milk! :)

    The first little bit is the worst but every day you don't supplement...
  22. Re: Mastitis/plugged duct? Over supply.Help!!

    Re: 3.5 month old refusing bottle

    My daughter uses a doidy (hence me knowing about them) and we like it... Yes she gets wet but I figure it's easy to change clothes, and a bit usually soaks the worst of it! Besides it's all part of...
  25. Re: Mastitis/plugged duct? Over supply.Help!!

    Try nursing in different positions too. If you can get the babies chin to 'massage' the affected area while they feed it might help clear it too.
