    Re: From white to watery?

    You original description of having a smaller output, thinner milk, and a tender chest makes me wonder if you are not doing a thorough job of removing milk with your pump. (I don't want to say...

    Re: when to switch bottle nipples?

    If you are away from him 10 hours then 12-14 ounces is within normal. My son, who was petite, would regularly eat 14+ ounces during a 10 hour separation, then wake 3-4 times per night to nurse more....

    Re: Advisse about baby nourished

    Did I read that right? He drinks 8oz bottles? That is double the size of a typical BF baby bottle. 3x8 is 24oz in bottles alone! If that is not a typo, I would cut back on bottle size.

  6. Re: Brand new mom-so overwhelmed with breast feeding

    The latch is going to be on and off for a while, because she is still learning. It will get incrementally better until it is second nature and takes no thought at all. You said the football hold is...
  7. Re: Brand new mom-so overwhelmed with breast feeding

    Newborn baby hands do tend to get in the way. They are their own worst enemy sometimes, but they learn.

    If she is eating often, gaining weight, and having sufficient diaper counts, things sound...
  8. Re: baby constipated nurse wants me to give bottles

    So what you are saying is, the nurse decided to completely ignore the fact that you are breastfeeding, because it is easier to give a stock response for a bottle fed baby than consider your specific...

    Re: Nursing to Sleep: Time to Stop?

    I would estimate at least 9/10 online resources will tell you to stop nursing/rocking/back-rubbing baby to sleep by the time they are 3 months old. It is pretty much the standard. Because, how else...

    Re: Milk reserves

    One thing I found helpful for getting a little freezer stash while on maternity leave was to pump during my first morning nursing session. I would nurse her a couple times overnight, but during that...

    Re: How to sleep for BF working mom

    Are you living in my house? Because your two kids' sleep patterns sound just like mine! DS didn't sleep through the night until he was a year, waking every 2-4 hours, but DD has slept long...

    Re: How to sleep for BF working mom

    I do agree that nursing can become a sleep association, but the question of how hard it is to break and when is the best time to break it is where the child's individual temperament comes into play. ...

    Re: How to sleep for BF working mom

    I agree with this completely. I tried to "teach" my son to sleep without BFing to sleep but all it did was make bedtime take hours. And we did this for a couple of months at different ages. Sleep...
  16. Re: When co-workers bash on breastfeeding

    I would have told him that I still BF'ed my 3 year old. If he had any sense of decency he would have realized that his comment was inappropriate because it was insulting. If he continued down the...

    Re: dayquil and breastfeeding

    There are a few different formulations, but most of the basic ingredients should be fine. Double check that the decongestant is phenylephrine, NOT pseudoephedrine. Pseudoephedrine can dry up your...

    How much time do you have after baby before you have to go back to work?

  22. Re: Haven't BF in 4 months is it possible?

    I can't answer your question about bringing back your milk supply, but I can tell you that pumping shouldn't hurt or make you bleed, whether you are lactating or not. Check that your flanges fit...

  25. Re: odd things we were told by the hospital

    You wouldn't need to lotion a newborn is the hospital didn't maintain the practice of bathing babies within minutes of them being born. It is unnecessary and bad for their skin.
