  1. Distracted nurser = only nursing to sleep

    My LO is almost 5 months. He's a great nurser unless he's distracted. This means, I need to nurse him in his room in the dark in the rocking chair.

    This would be fine except that I have a 2 year...

    Re: Do I need to drop dairy?

    They are turning more yellow. I have dropped dairy just because it doesn't really affect ME personally to not have it. I had already dropped milk itself b/c it was giving me acne, apparently.

    Re: Do I need to drop dairy?

    No blood. I don't think there's mucous. This looks like sherbet.

    He nurses about every 3 to 4 hours depending. He typically will only take 1 side at a time. He stays awake for 1.5 to 2 hours at a...

    Do I need to drop dairy?

    Baby is 14 weeks. He's had green frothy stools.

    I stopped drinking milk. It got a little better. Yesterday, I had some Greek yogurt. Today, another very frothy green stool.

    I may have...
  5. Re: Naps are 10 minutes..wants to feed all of the time

    It is so rough to not have a routine when we so desperately want one. With all three of my children, 8 weeks seemed to be the "light at the end of the tunnel." By no means did we have a routine or...

    Re: OALD, green poo, teething

    I'm not uncomfortable if he only does one side. He's really quick (10 or fewer minutes) when he nurses. I guess I just want to be sure he gets to the hind milk and that the frothy green isn't a...

    OALD, green poo, teething

    Baby is 12 weeks this week. I have OALD (there's a fountain on my right side when he pops off - literally), and he's teething (all my babies thus far have 2 teeth by 15 weeks).

    Yesterday, he had...

    Re: Lots of random questions

    Ok,phew. You're making me feel better.
    I've done the reclined, yes, but that was at first when I was in total pain from getting used to nursing a baby again. I could try it...

    Otherwise, I'm in...

    Lots of random questions

    Baby boy is 7 weeks old today. I have no issue with having enough for him - in fact, I may have too much. Would love some thoughts on these issues:

    1. I'm shooting him in the face, and he seems to...

    Re: Starting to pump -- Suggestions?

    Hey everyone - ok, I can wait a little longer. I just didn't want baby boy to resist it. I will only be gone about 2 hours or so, so maybe it'll work out just fine. I just don't want to leave my DH...

    Starting to pump -- Suggestions?

    Hello all -
    My son is 6 weeks old. Right now, we are EBF - no pumping or anything. However, this fall, there will be one night a week that I will possibly miss a nursing b/c of teaching a night...

    Re: Help with latch

    Semi-dumb question now - about how much does it hurt in the first few weeks even when you've already nursed a baby or two? And does that pain vary per person?

    Also, I don't see how he can get much...

    Re: Help with latch

    I completely hear you. I will say cracks are better. We did the laid back position last night and although horribly awkward for me, I think it helped a bit.
    Baby is now jaundiced and wearing a...

    Now the nipples are cracking. I'm "lubing" them up - what else can I do? Won't it just exacerbate the issue to have baby nursing on it? I about came off my chair today when he latched...

    Oh wow. Thank you so much. That makes so much sense as I had 3 bags of fluid before/during labor. Wow. Didn't even realize that could cause an issue. I've been quite impressed with the size of my...

    I can't make a sandwich with my breast - it's so full or big right now. I know this will calm down eventually - so am I just needing to...

    We will see the pediatrician tomorrow, and I'll be asking her about the tongue tie for sure. The nurse who saw me in the hospital is IBCLC.

    Help with latch

    My third baby is 4 days old today. My nipples HURT!

    It appears he's only getting the tip and not the bigger part of the nipple. He eats well, and as my milk is already in, diaper output has...

    I, too, have an 11 month old (tomorrow!), and we're still nursing. I want to finish as close to 12 months as well, but I know that it won't just happen suddenly. I'm going to continue the number of...

    Re: Still hungry after nursing

    thanks for the thoughts. I don't think it's a growth spurt as it's been happening for about a month or more - just always hungry for food - goes to the cabinet, gets some out, hands it to me,...

    Still hungry after nursing

    LO is 11 months. In the morning, when he wakes, he nurses really well but then he seems famished. Is he not getting enough from me? He eats three solid meals a day as well as some snacks throughout....

    Re: Nursing problems early morning

    He cut them out. I offered and offered and offered. He wouldn't do them. He was on a goofy strike b/c of an ear infection (so, not really a strike), so I was lucky to have these. I kept trying before...

    Re: Nursing problems early morning

    I guess that's my biggest problem - he won't nurse otherwise. He's too excited about the rest of the world. How else can I get him the milk? I have some frozen. Should I be letting him drink that in...

    Re: Nursing problems early morning

    I still get the fun tingle. And his swallowing is definitely different. I think he's getting drops, but not the "good stuff." I'm wondering how much it has to do with the amount of food I've eaten or...
