  1. Re: Not letting down, won't take bottle

    I'm pretty certain because I can feel letdown pretty strongly and LO gets that characteristic sucking pattern that indicates he's really drinking. I know he is distracted, which doesn't help, but I...
  2. Re: Not letting down, won't take bottle

    I will definitely give that a try! Thanks!
  3. Not letting down, won't take bottle

    Ugh, I feel so trapped. I've been BFing my son for 7 months. We've had A LOT of challenges (oversupply, milk allergy, etc.) and finally when I get to the point where things are going smoothly, I'm...

    Re: 4 Month Old Stopped Gaining

    He wants me to supplement with formula and start rice cereal. And he is pro-BFing, so that's what got me freaked out in the first place. However, he's been absolutely refusing the bottle lately...

    Re: 4 Month Old Stopped Gaining

    The scale was not the same, but same doctor's office. I also have a scale at home and the numbers jive. Baby hasn't been sick and there has been no change in mobility (he's not rolling yet). He was...

    4 Month Old Stopped Gaining

    My 4-month-old EBF baby only gained a few ounces from 3 to 4 months. This is, of course, worrying me greatly. He had previously been gaining close to a pound a week and he doubled his birthweight by...

    9 week old suddenly nursing less?

    My 9-week-old son typically nurses for 15-20 minutes (we usually only do one breast per feeding). In the past few days, he's only wanted to eat for 5-10 minutes and it's freaking me out! Some...

    Re: Comfort nursing

    I would really like to, but I can't handle the engorgement. Even just doing one breast per feeding leaves the other breast painfully engorged by the next feeding. I hope my supply regulates soon...

    Comfort nursing

    I thought of another question -- thank you all so much for all your helpful advice!

    My son (1 month old) loves to comfort nurse, but I'm wondering if that will exacerbate my oversupply issues?...

    Re: Oversupply, engorgement and foremilk

    I woke up Sunday night and my breasts were totally engorged (everything had been going fine up until that point). Nothing had changed in our feeding pattern except for the fact that I pumped for the...

    Re: Oversupply, engorgement and foremilk

    His poops have always been yellow, but they are very numerous, watery and explosive. There is always at least a little something in each diaper, along with several large poops per day. He seems okay...

    Re: Instant oatmeal and mother's milk te

    I was also eating oatmeal and drinking the tea, and I also developed an oversupply. Who knows if that is related or not!

    Oversupply, engorgement and foremilk

    Hi everyone,

    I'm currently on day 2 of a one-breast-per-feeding routine to try to combat an oversupply. The problem is that the breast that I don't feed on becomes very engorged, especially...

    Re: Oversupply?

    Oops, that wasn't right.

    The first time, I pumped right after nursing and I guess I was pretty empty because I only got 0.5 ounces. I tried again two hours later and got 4 ounces between both...

    Re: Oversupply?

    Sorry, I totally forgot to include that information. My son is one month old. I've only pumped twice and he's only received that one bottle (our pedi told us to introduce it around 4 weeks). I feed...

    Oversupply?

    Everything has been going fine breastfeeding wise until Sunday when I pumped for the first time so my husband could give my son a bottle. I ended up pumping twice for 15 minutes each and my husband...
