  2. After 5 months of severe nursing aversion...Suceess Story!!!

  3. Re: Hard to nurse baby has/had strep throat

    Any update mama? How did the appointment go??
  4. Re: Hard to nurse baby has/had strep throat

    I agree with joesmom....breastmilk has more fats/calories than *most* solids anyway, so the more she will let you nurse the better. As for the iron, my ds #2 had a level of 7.7 at one point. Since...

  6. Re: Baby will only nurse while asleep/sleepy, is there any h

    My 6 month old dd has been refusing all feeds awake for almost 4 months now. She started refusing right around the 2.5 month mark. I think our situation was caused by a combination of...

    Re: 8 month old nursing aversion

    Hey mama! Wish it was as easy as just adding in another nursing session, huh? I know how hard you fight just to get those 8 in as it is. I do know that it can be completely normal, even for an...
  9. Re: 6 Month Old Not Eating During the Day/Frustrated

    Maybe try getting her to sleep, then dreamfeeding her. My dd is 5 months old and has been having a breast aversion for the past 3 months. I have been exclusively feeding her while she sleeps. This...

    Re: My Story

    :hug Sorry you are having so many struggles mama!

    The biggest red flags that stood out to me are:

    * The lipstick nipple----could indicate latch issue or tongue tie
    * The burning/itching...

    Thank you for sharing the article! Now I understand why alot of babies that refuse the breast in these situations do so around the 2-3 month mark! Still holding on to hope that *someday* she will...

    Re: So frustrated! What do I do!?

    Have you considered offering the supplement first (maybe 1-2 oz) then finishing with the breast? This way they associate the breast with the full/satisfied feeling, not the other way around. I've...

  15. Re: OALD/FFLD.....when does it "go away"??

    Thank you for the link....however, my supply has regulated nicely for the last few months now. It is just the letdown that seems to present a bit of an issue. I guess I'm grasping at straws and...
  16. Re: OALD/FFLD.....when does it "go away"??

    I appreciate your input! The only other factors that I can think of are the following: Before this started, I yelled at my toddler (while nursing the baby) who had climbed onto the counter and was...
  17. OALD/FFLD.....when does it "go away"??

    I'm on my 3rd month of only being able to nurse dd while she is asleep. It has progressed to me being able to only do so while walking her around as well, thus eliminating any chance of...
  18. Re: How do you count wet diapers?

    You should see 5-6+ wet diapers every 24 hours. To feel what a sufficiently wet diaper is like, pour 3 tablespoons of water into a clean diaper. A piece of tissue in a disposable diaper will help you...

    Hey mama! Sounds like you might have a touch of oversupply, but no, you are not overfeeding your LO. However, until your supply is regulated, it may be a bit difficult for your LO to comfort nurse....

    Re: Sippy for 6 month old

    Yep, she sleeps in a pack-n-play right next to our bed. I am a very light sleeper so I'm able to get to her at her first rousing and even then, she will balk at the breast and not feed until I've...
