  1. Re: Is baby being overfed at daycare? And what to do about i

    Oh one more thing, I have definitely read about the 1-1.5oz/hour guideline before, but I've always kind of wondered if that applies to babies who do NOT sleep through the night, and therefore get...
  2. Re: Is baby being overfed at daycare? And what to do about i

    Thanks for the advice. I will try cutting back the size of the bottles gradually (so that daycare doesn't freak out). Unfortunately they will not allow me to keep any frozen milk there as a backup,...
  3. Is baby being overfed at daycare? And what to do about it?

    My son is 6 months old and has been in daycare full time for about a month (part time for a month before that). He is exclusively breastfeed, but we did start some solids at 5 months.

    Before...
  4. Re: Is it OK to pump just once to completely empty breasts?

    Well I ended up calling my OB to report this situation and ask for advice. She said it is likely that I already have mastitis brewing, so she is prescribing an antibiotic for me. Phew. She also...
  5. Is it OK to pump just once to completely empty breasts?

    I feel like I am having a new problem every day. Last night, I posted another thread about my DS cluster feeding to the point of projectile spitting up several ounces at a time (I have oversupply,...
  6. 9 day old cluster feeding, then vomiting from too much milk

    Please help.

    My son is 9 days old. Breastfeeding has generally been going very well - aside from some minor latch issues that we are working on improving (we saw an LC today).

    For the past...
  7. Re: 5-day old only nursing for 5-7 min per side

    Just an update - Today baby had 7 wet diapers (so far - it is only 6:22pm), and 2 poops. The last poop was the yellow/seedy BF poop I have been waiting for from him, no more brown-greenish slimy...
  8. Re: 5-day old only nursing for 5-7 min per side

    Ok thanks for the suggestions and info! I will try waking him every 2 hours during the day to eat. Maybe even every 1.5 hours. I'll let him sleep longer stretches at night. Depending on what we find...
  9. Re: 5-day old only nursing for 5-7 min per side

    Also, I was wondering about his poops. They are still medium brown color with a greenish tinge, and kind of slimy (not sticky like meconium)... they have not yet changed to the yellow/seedy...
  10. Re: 5-day old only nursing for 5-7 min per side

    Here's his diaper output so far:

    Wet Diapers:

    Birth day = 0
    1 day old = 3
    2 days old = 2
    3 days old =4
    4 days old = 5
    Today = 2 (it is 9:30am here)
  11. 5-day old only nursing for 5-7 min per side

    Hello everyone,

    When I had my first baby in 2011, I spent a lot of time seeking help on these boards (my son had tongue-tie, refused to nurse, I EP'd for 6+ weeks before finally getting him to...

    Re: Anxiety over pumping at work

    Also - my first day back at work I pumped 20+ oz which was beyond great. It was yesterday and today that it dropped to around 16oz.

    Re: Anxiety over pumping at work

    For most of the time I was EPing I had a hospital pump, but I did use my current pump (Ameda Purely Yours) a handful of times during that period and my output was about the same. That said, I was...

    Re: Anxiety over pumping at work

    He is 4 months old tomorrow.

    I do breast compressions. And also when I mention "relaxing" I don't mean I'm just sitting there doing nothing or meditating or something. ;) I spend my pumping time...

    Re: Anxiety over pumping at work

    Oh great, more pumping anxiety just arrived in my voicemail! Daycare called while I was pumping and asked if I might be willing to add about half an ounce to each of DS's bottles, because "he's not...

    Re: Anxiety over pumping at work

    Thanks for all the replies already.

    One thing you guys are right about is this is an issue with ME and my anxiety. I have always been the self-conscious and modest type so the idea of getting my...

    Anxiety over pumping at work

    I am on my 3rd day back to work. I am pumping milk 3 times a day for my 4 month old DS.

    I work in a cubicle and my company has a "quiet room" set aside that pumping mothers can use. The thing is,...
  18. Suddenly very short nursing sessions???

    My DS is about 3.5 months old. His typical nursing habits have been every 1.5-2 hours feeding for at least 15 min per side, often much longer.

    Today, quite suddenly, he has been nursing only 3-7...

    Odd head twisting behavior

    My DS is almost 3 months old and has developed a new oddball behavior while nursing, starting yesterday I think. I use a nursing pillow with DS lying on his side with his tummy facing me. This is the...

    Re: Is BF at 7 wks possible?

    7 weeks is definitely not too late.

    My DS was born with a mild tongue tie and a really bad latch. We (and the hospital nurses) made a number of mistakes early on that ultimately lead to my baby...

    Nursing at on-site daycare at work

    Has anyone nursed their baby at an on-site daycare center at their workplace?

    I've been informed by someone in my HR department that I'm allowed to do this (my baby starts daycare in January). ...

    Re: HELP - is this oversupply or what?

    Thanks so much! I feel better already. Some questions on the block feeding:

    1. Do you suggest I just switch sides at each feeding? I.e. right side at one feeding, then left side at the next? Or...

    Re: HELP - is this oversupply or what?

    Actually I did forget to mention engorgement. DS has been sleeping 6-7 hours at night for a couple of weeks... and during the rest of the day he nurses every 2 hours on average. During that long...
