    Amysmom - that was really interesting, thanks!

    When my son was in the NICU, I remember being surprised when I was there for a painful procedure and they gave him sucrose. I felt like you're...

    Re: It Breaks My Heart....

    It is hard when they wean and when it looks different than we wanted it too. Not that anything can replace nursing, but it might be helpful to have something you do with her that's special for you...

    Re: Need some insights.

    I agree with mommal...I wouldn't let him go more than 3 hrs during the daytime without feeding. I also agree with the whole try to latch for no more than 15 mins because the idea is to make sure...
  4. Re: Transition NICU baby from bottle to exclusively breast? Help!

    I'm on my phone, so I'll be brief...can you rent a scale and weigh before and after she breastfeeds? Is she getting any bottles at this point? Are there any reflux issues?

    Re: Positioning Issues

    A couple thoughts...does she have reflux? When you are bringing her to breast, make sure your hand isn't pushing on the back of her head - you want to make your hand into a "C" and place your hand...

    Re: I don't know what to do next...

    Do you warm the milk in bottles and in the straw cup? If he's used to warm bottles, you may want to warm milk in his cup for a bit and slowly decrease how much you warm it.

    Re: Actively Weaning

    I am really, really sore too. I'm assuming it's because Owen's latch has never been great and now he's getting lazy with it too.

    I had a ton of guilt when weaning Emma. I desperately wanted to...

    Re: Planning to wean...I think

    It is definitely possible to partially wean at that age. As you approach going back to work, you may want to help him learn to go to sleep without nursing and I'd keep at it with the sippy cup. ...

    You may just need more time for him to get that stamina to work for his whole feeding at the breast. You mentioned a baby scale - are you weighing him before and after breastfeeding? If so, how...

    I think you'll need to pump. Last month I went away two times - both for about 30 hours. My son only nurses 3 times in 24 hours, but I had to pump once during each trip. I couldn't bring my big...
