  1. Re: EPing, waiting for nipple to heal, no progress - - HELP!

    The breastfeeding clinic at my hospital gave me Dr. Newman's nipple cream. The stuff was amazing, I am on my 9th and never had less sore nipples (other than the now lip tie issues; but I mean the...

    Does this look like a lip tie?
  3. Re: Preemie latches hard after nursing for a while

    He has been loads better about clamping but I'm still sore. I did go into the lactation consultant and she was ultra busy; she checked his tongue and suck and said he had great movement and so no...
  4. Re: Preemie latches hard after nursing for a while

    Wonderful! I've never heard of breaking the latch that way! Also, I tried the laying down and it's working great for one side and the other side it's worse on... I usually do cross cradle/cradle...
  5. Re: Preemie latches hard after nursing for a while

    Alright, I will see how it works out. I need to go back in to the hospital in a week or so to drop of his car-seat they lended me, so I can visit with the breastfeeding clinic then too if need be. I...
  6. Re: Preemie latches hard after nursing for a while

    I would normally unlatch like you say, but once I get him off he won't go back on... I think it's a tired preemie thing because he falls asleep so easy while nursing.

    It could be my milk flow...
  7. Re: What you need to know about the NICU

    Don't let them bottle feed until the very last minute... I was required to have my son orally eat all his food the last 24 to 48 hours so I had to give in at nights then or stay the night (not an...
  8. Re: 6 wo need multivit for breastfeed bby?

    Just from my own personal experience, I found it to upset their stomachs. My son was born 4 weeks early and they insisted I give some to him; I put up with it in the hospital but I noticed he spit up...

    Re: I need sleep

    I know this may be controversial, but have you considered him sleeping on his tummy? They sleep SO much better. I was terrified of SIDS too; but I did some research and the whole nonsense about SIDS...
  10. Preemie latches hard after nursing for a while

    My son was born 4 weeks early (8 pounds!) and really has been a great nurser from the get-go. But now that my nipples are a little less sore (he is 18 days old), I notice that he is clamping down a...
  11. Re: Low milk, fast flow, 5 mo baby pulling back, impatient and won't nurse long

    Thank you both!! Yesterday I made a point to constantly nurse her and I drakn a whole pot of mother's milk tea! LOL and other than about 1/4 jar of food, she made it through the day pretty content! ...
  12. Re: Low milk, fast flow, 5 mo baby pulling back, impatient and won't nurse long

    She is in the 8th percentile at 13 pounds and is coming up on 5 months. She was a big baby, so she has gained about 3.5 pounds since she was born. She has good diapers during the day. She was pretty...

  14. Low milk, fast flow, 5 mo baby pulling back, impatient and won't nurse long

    This is my 7th baby and she is just about 5 months now. It seems like I go through this with each baby: around 4 months the babies get fussy and cry when my milk doesn't let down fast enough, I...
  15. Re: Too quick of letdown... but then I also fight milk supply issues, help?

    Thank you, Jessica, lots of good reading!

    I think, by what I have been reading, that I also have oversupply. In fact, I'm pretty sure of it. I just worry that (like in my previous babies) my...
  16. Too quick of letdown... but then I also fight milk supply issues, help?

    I have a bit of an issue... I don't sleep with baby since it has never worked out well for me or baby getting much sleep... (this is my seventh)

    Yet by looking through these threads I see that I...
