    Re: Baby lost weight

    Thank you, that's exactly what I needed to hear! He is still quite enthusiastic. Yesterday I was trying to get his attention while he was playing on the bed. I took one breast out, and his eyes lit...

    Re: Baby lost weight

    I have the copper iud, so that's not an issue.

    But I did some research and discovered that the unisom I took for sleep (a half a tab during baby's longest sleep stretch) was probably reducing my...

    Re: Baby lost weight

    Thank you so much for the encouragement! Doctor did indeed suggest supplementing with formula. Which in turn made me cry. But he actually lost less than I thought - more like six ounces. Still...

    Re: Baby lost weight

    I will try to offer more often during the day. I offer about every two hours throughout the day right now. He goes to sleep at 7. I do a dream feed about 9 and then he usually wakes up to eat about...

    Baby lost weight

    Okay, I could use some serious encouragement and advice. I'm feeling beside myself right now. I just had my eight month old son weighed, and he weighed 17 lbs, 3 oz. He weighed over 18 pounds the...
  6. Re: Slow letdown and sore nipples

    Thanks for the feedback! I did have a very cranky baby, and I couldn't hear him drinking, so I do think letdown was an issue (though a short lived one). It was probably pain related. We'll work on...

    Re: Blocked ducts

    My local Le Leche leader suggested lecithin when I had multiple plugged ducts. I've also been told not to wear tight bras for exercising, but lecithin has also made a big difference!
  8. Slow letdown and sore nipples

    Okay, I have a couple questions for you wise ladies. The first involves sore nipples. DS is teething, and a few days ago he bit my nipples several times at the end of a feed. He doesn't actually have...

    Re: All night nursing

    Thank you so much for all the support! Yesterday was day two on the reflux med, and DS slept a seven hour stretch last night. :) I know this doesn't mean a thing going forward, but catching up on a...

    Re: All night nursing

    Painkillers don't seem to help at all. How would I know if he has an allergy to something I'm eating?

    Re: Achy legs and Breastfeeding?!

    Is it like achy joints? I have really sore knees, and my doctor said it's probably hormones from nursing. She said it might take up to a year or even whenever DS is weaned for this to totally go away.
  12. Re: Nighttime nursing, teething, bad habits?

    I'm right there with you. I hate seeing my little guy in pain, and he seems more and more exhausted each day. Like the others said, I'm glad to have such an effective tool to use as often as needed....

    Re: All night nursing

    Things are getting worse instead of better. :( Poor guy really seems to be in pain. The thrashing at the breast is bad, and it's keeping me up. I got about 2.5 hours of sleep last night. We went to...

    I can totally empathize. Sorry I can't offer any advice, but that sure does sound familiar!

    Re: All night nursing

    Thanks for the tips! We have a very soft mattress (not ideal for co-sleeping), so I have to sort of balance myself to avoid smooshing baby.

    Is it possible this is reflux and not teething? I was...

    All night nursing

    Hi mamas,

    I’m feeling burnt out and need some advice!

    DS will be 4 months on Friday. Typically he starts the night in his pack and play by the bed and then moves into bed after his first night...
