    weaning (yes) help!

    It's been a long time for me here - nursing classes wiped out all my discretionary time over a year ago, so I'm guessing it's been that long since my last post. However, I'm at my wit's end and, not...
  2. Re: 6 weeks and I can only pump 3 oz!!!!

    :ita with PPs. Totally normal! I didn't start pumping a decent amount until after I'd been back at work for several weeks. I think it just took a while for me to get used to producing for the pump.

    Re: 7 Week Old Fussing/Pulling

    :ita Totally normal.

    Your baby is also around prime fussy time, age-wise. Most sources will tell you that it peaks around 6 weeks and has usually subsided by around 3-4 months. With my...

    Re: Questions About My Brestfriend....

    I'm not sure that My Brestfriend is going to help much with nursing upright, but maybe someone will chime in with a technique I haven't thought of :)

    Yes - the two lumps are for her head. The...
  5. Re: Important question about excess lipa

    I can't be 100% sure, but I'd be very surprised it there was actually a link. Think about it like apples and oranges: lipase breaks down fats (apples) and food intolerances generally have to do with...

    Wow, Becca! Are you having mixed feelings? Nearly four year is such a big accomplishment!

  7. Re: Trying to find the cause of all this

    Welcome to the forum and congratulations on your baby!

    I'll first say that I don't have much experience with early babies, and you might be dealing with issues partially related to that. Having a...

    I wish I could go back and tell that sorry LC at the hospital to actually come closer than across the room and DO HER JOB rather than tossing me the wrong sized nipple shield and going about her...

    Re: Wine and Breastmilk

    I'd keep it :duck

    If the directions say to read it at two minutes, and the only two tests you actually looked at after two minutes indicated that the milk was safe, then that's what I'd focus on...

    Re: freezing in bags or bottles

    :ita

    It also depends on how much you plan to keep in the freezer. If you're only looking to store a few bottles' worth, then there's probably no point in buying bags. However, if you're planning...

    Re: Food Sensitivity...

    When you say "what about goat milk/cheese?", does that mean you still have goat's milk products in your diet? If so, that could be your culprit. The proteins in goat's milk are very similar to...

    Re: 6 week old won't eat at night?

    Well within the range of normal, especially if your baby is nursing a good amount during the day. :ita with the previous poster: enjoy it while it lasts, and keep your fingers crossed that it will!!

    Re: "Heaven forbid" freezer stash?

    I have one...sort of. It's less a "heaven forbid" stash and more of a "pumping doesn't own me" stash. Storing (and rotating) triple digit ounces makes me feel less like a slave to the pump, because...

    Re: When can I stop taking Fenugreek?

    Same with me :ita

    I was using mother's milk tea, and I think I stopped sometime around 6 months without a dip in supply. As PPs said, you can always start back up if you notice any decrease!

    One of the things that bothered me the most about getting Lillian's milk allergy under control was the knowledge that my baby was in a lot of pain, and that being in pain was part of...

    Re: can't put her down

    My 10 month old is swinging back around to it - she was like that for a few weeks at 6-7 months. When it passes this time, I'll be saying "see you later" rather than "goodbye" to velcro baby...

    Mine go for nearly 12 hours from the last use at work to my before bed pumping session - no problems in at least 5 months of doing this.
  18. Re: Solids Thread: What Have You Tried? How Old Is Your LO?

    @Susan - just looked at the buddy fruits. That's totally candy. Good to know, also for the light it probably sheds on their other products. I've considered picking it up a time or two, but hadn't...
  19. Re: Solids Thread: What Have You Tried? How Old Is Your LO?

    Really? Ok, cool! My first time mom head kept thinking that wasn't very much. Maybe my expectations were coming from stories and anecdotes I've heard from parents who emphasize pushing solids...

    Re: food/milk??

    How soon what you eat enters your breastmilk depends on kind of a lot of stuff. My daughter is allergic to cow's milk protein and soy. There have been a couple of occasions when I've inadvertently...
  21. Re: When should I introduce purees to my DD?

    The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends waiting until 6 months, but your baby is your best guide. Signs of readiness for solids include being able to sit well, loss of the tongue thrust...

    Re: Help for step-daughter

    If she's nursing on demand, he's a vigorous nurser, and he's having plenty of wets and poops, then it does sound like everything is probably fine.

    If all's otherwise well, I'd be inclined to...

    Re: the truth behind rice cereal

    Here's a good link for info on iron. But like the PP mentioned, if you're nursing, your baby is likely a-ok in the iron department.

    There's no reason to give rice cereal if you're not into it. ...
