    Re: Help about feeding

    I usually burp between sides. Is the lo slipping off because he is asleep? 10 min. is good if you want to switch, or you could try for more letdowns. Just make sure you go to the other side for the...

    Re: Need suggestions for constipated baby

    LO was having a stool about once a week. When I started her on solids she firmed up a bit (which I expected), but was still going once a week. Then she went a bit past a week and her stool was like...

    Re: Snotty Nose

    If you get a baby saline solution and suction his nose with the bulb they gave you at the hospital it may help. I don't think the co-sleeping is a problem.

    Re: Slow let down

    I had trouble with my lo fussing about slow letdown and it was because she was so hungry she hated waiting. I just went ahead and fed her a little sooner so she wasn't so hungry. Also, it sounds like...

    Is it constipation?

    My lo has been having a little trouble pooping the last few days. She normally goes only 1x a week any way, but the poor little thing has to grunt and push like crazy and sometimes it's only a tiny...

    Re: Why does she do this

    If you are having a supply issue you should be nursing/pumping more. I found with my dd she would come off quickly because she was not getting a let down quick enough for her hunger. I mistook it for...

    Re: Naughty for Daddy

    :hug I guess the first question is how often do you nurse her when you are home? My 7 1/2mo old still nurses every 2hrs. Also, when a baby is offered a bottle even if they are not hungry they will...

    Re: Can I bf from just one breast?

    My guess is that this breast is still being given a work out and is just sore from nursing. No biggy. Just be a lefty:D

    Re: Can I bf from just one breast?

    Yes, you can ebf on one side:D I imagine your unused side would be "more normal" size, but after your supply is settled in it may not even be noticable. It's all about supply and demand....the more...

    Sounds like they are just sleepy heads. :) If you were engorged than she probably got more milk than usual and was full. Try massaging your breast and hand expressing some milk before you try to...

    I say go with your instincts. It's hard to tell when they are still newborn, so I always tried to wake lo to be sure lo was really done, and make sure my milk supply was good. Wet/dirty diapers and...

    Everything sound normal to me. My second daughter nursed every 45min for a while. If you are OK with comfort nursing than I say go for it. Other wise you could try a pacifier if it's too tiring for...

    Re: Baby fussing and crying during feeding?

    Sounds like she may need to be burped more/sooner. She may even be full already if you have OALD. If you are concerned about getting the hind milk into her then let your foremilk spray out a bit and...

    Did you say she would nurse at the breast at all? Skin to skin is a big help. Nurse in warm bath is great and very comforting. Are you using an electric pump? Just add more feeding/pumping to...
