  1. Re: Not Sure Where to Go From Here

    Thank you all for your comments! Here are some answers to your questions and our updated situation:

    -I have emailed the LC and plan on making an appointment with her as soon as she's back from...
  2. Not Sure Where to Go From Here

    Trying to get my 2nd baby to nurse and having a tough time. She's two-wks tomorrow and our current routine is:

    Every three hours, I use a shield (small, flat-ish nipples) to nurse her. She'll...
  3. Re: Does anyone just pump and bottle feed breastmilk?

    Thanks for all the responses! Not much has changed since I posted. Yesterday, she barely breastfed, today she has but with a lot of crying at the beginning and tense body language through most of the...
  4. Re: Does anyone just pump and bottle feed breastmilk?

    Thank you all for your replies, they are helpful. Regarding the pump vs. the LO's ability to extract milk, I think my pump is actually better. There are MANY times when (if she actually latches) she...
  5. Does anyone just pump and bottle feed breastmilk?

    My LO is almost 10 weeks old. We have struggled since day one with breastfeeding and have had ups and downs, I have posted before about our struggles. At the moment, a good feeding goes like this:...
  6. Re: Still Struggling With Breastfeeding at 7 Weeks

    I do try compressions but it sometimes throws her off her groove.
  7. Re: Still Struggling With Breastfeeding at 7 Weeks

    Diapers are fine, plenty of wet and at least 2 BMs a day. I checked my let-down on one side when I pumped earlier and I think it's either slow or normal. There was no "flying milk", haha. I'll check...
  8. Re: Still Struggling With Breastfeeding at 7 Weeks

    At the suggestion of our LC and the approval of the pediatrician, we have upped the dose of Zantac, so hopefully that starts working soon. LO has nursed a bit starting yesterday but it now struggling...
  9. Re: Still Struggling With Breastfeeding at 7 Weeks

    I don't really know what my letdown is like, I use a nipple shield. Is there a way I can tell? She was diagnosed with silent reflux a few weeks ago and has been on medication, which seemed to have...
  10. Re: Still Struggling With Breastfeeding at 7 Weeks

    In an update to my original post, LO has now become EXTREMELY fussy when feeding. She will maybe eat for 3, 5 or 10 minutes and then start crying, pushing off the breast and kicking out her legs. She...
  11. Re: Hope for nipple shield addicts!

    This definitely gives me hope! I also have used a shield since day 5 and all attempts to go without have resulted in refusal to nurse. If I'm lucky, LO will take the bare nipple in her mouth for a...
  12. Re: My 'struggling to nurse' laundry list-- should I give up?

    I can't give you much advice but I can tell you I'm in a very similar situation (see my post today called Still Struggling at 7 Weeks) and I can sympathize COMPLETELY. I have a feeling that someone...
  13. Re: Still Struggling With Breastfeeding at 7 Weeks

    Thanks ladies. I had already read the links on kellymom and was trying to remove the shield at all different times but haven't had luck. I've read that weaning can take weeks or even (gulp) months....
  14. Still Struggling With Breastfeeding at 7 Weeks

    My beautiful daughter is almost 8 weeks old and we are still struggling with many breastfeeding issues. We've had lots of ups and downs and I'm beginning to wonder if maybe we're just not meant to...
