    Re: Not eating as much

    Hi, bellygurl. :hug

  2. Re: Cracked/bleeding nipples at 9 months!!

    :hug So good you're finding some relief!

    Oftentimes, when there's trauma to the nipple (cracked/bleeding nipples, like in your case) it's recommended to keep the area clean since the area is...

    Re: polyethy glycol

    Also, something to keep in mind is that baby's main source of nutrition is coming from your breastmilk, not the solids, so you may want to continue involving baby at meal times, letting him play with...

    Re: polyethy glycol

    Re: Poop Question

    Hmmm... It sounds like maybe a combination of a couple of things... Hang in there! :gvibes

    You may want to just stay on the same breast for an *entire* feeding & don't offer the other side until...

    Re: polyethy glycol

    I hear your concern. Generally, if a mother increases breastfeeding and decreases solids, baby will have more bowel movements. Breast milk is a natural laxative. You may want to avoid foods like...
  10. Re: How much should a ten week old nurse?

    :ita Babies are so unique. I can see why the sleep patterns are making you wonder. Glad to hear baby's getting plenty of wet and poopie diapers and is gaining weight well. :)

    Sometimes, for...

    Re: 3 month growth spurt

    :hug This can feel so time consuming. Are her wet diaper counts still in the "plenty" ranges of 5-6 per day? Have you all ever had any nursing difficutlties? If not, and baby's latch-on is good,...

    Re: Poop Question

    That color can certainly make any new mom a little nervous. :hug Have you only breastfed? Has baby had any formula or vitamins? Have you had anything like orange Gatorade? Soemtimes what a mother...
  15. Re: congestion/snuffles after BF'ing

    Hmmm... What has your ped said? Would baby possibly have a cold? Although Dr. Sears mentions a baby's breathing can sound noisy and uncomfortable because of small nasal passages, he also mentions...

    Re: Cut on Nipple

    Ouch... So sorry that happened! :hug This is an excellent question, too!

    You may want to just make sure the area is kept clean and air out in between feedings. Then, after you've...
  17. Re: Cracked/bleeding nipples at 9 months!!

    Generally, if a mom gets her period back, she can get really sore, too. But, usually with cracked and bleeding nipples, there tends to be a latch-on problem. Sometimes, baby might even get a little...
  18. Re: Can I tell if my sitter gave him formula?

    So sorry to hear you all are having a tough time. :hug Some of the basics to helping supply are increasing frequency of nursing, making sure the baby is latched on correctly, and offering both...
  19. Re: Cracked/bleeding nipples at 9 months!!

    It's certainly frustrating & hard when the little one begins to bite. Nipple soreness from a teething baby is (thankfully) a temporary change. Of course, it's not necessary to wean. Hang in there......
  20. Re: Why can I suddenly not seem to keep the flow going without massaging?

    It sounds like you could have a little bit of both issues... slower let-down and a slight imbalance of supply. Being sick won't cause a mother to have a lower supply, but sometimes if baby has a...

    So sorry you're still having some issues. You might want to clean the area with some mild soap and then nurse... it does sound like an infection, but it's perfectly fine to nurse. Glad to hear...

    Re: HELP! Let Down Issue!

    Can you tell me more about the reasons you were on a 3-hour feeding schedule? For the full-term, healthy baby it's suggested to nurse on-cue, as much as baby wants... this usually yields about 8-12x...
