  1. Re: My 6 month old nurses only (mostly) while asleep

    Well, it would freak me out if my child's doctor said something so ridiculous too! The idea that WATER can be substituted for an important, calorie rich FOOD, like breastmilk or formula, is very odd,...

    Re: Baby never seems satisfied

    Ok, sorry about that. So baby has not lost weight but gained weight since lowest known weight, and that is good! That gain of 5 ounces in about 2 weeks is still pretty slow, though, so you still...
  3. Re: Still battling with poor weight gain..

    ok, if they are making you supplement, they must have an apt scheduled to weigh baby again to see if this is working/to have things reassessed? There are other reasons a baby might not gain well,...

    Re: Baby never seems satisfied

    ok. so lowest known weight- at 2 days- was 7 lbs 5 ounces, and baby is now 7 lbs 1 ounce?

    It is normal for a baby to lose weight the first couple of days after birth, But By discharge was baby...
  5. Re: Still battling with poor weight gain..

    :ita What gets me is doctor said supplement (that big nighttime bottle, which is probably in part leading to baby not nursing so long at night- was this doctor order too?) but no one suggested you...

    Re: Gagging on second breast

    ok great, hope that helps. All moms are lopsided to one degree or another!
  7. Re: My 6 month old nurses only (mostly) while asleep

    Hi. It sounds like the issues began at around 4 months. This is consistent with something called the 'four month fussies" when some babies start to nurse very differently than before, and in general...

    Re: Gagging on second breast

    Just so I understand- this happens only on the right, and only when the right is offered second?

    I think it is possible your left produces more, and baby is thus full and no longer interested...

    Re: Low Supply and Not Latching

    Hi, I am sorry you are having these difficulties.

    I am hearing 3 issues- 1) baby is not nursing (at all? Sometimes? It's not clear) 2) You are concerned about your milk production and 3) you are...
  10. Re: squirming and grunting in 1 month old at night

    Hi! First, interesting thing about gas drops. I ran across these articles recently that discusses a study that found pro-biotics helped more than gas drops for a fussy baby. IN fact, most studies...

    Re: feel like giving up

    my point was, any frozen & stored food item is in some way minutely different than fresh from the tap, and some people will SAY this 'hurts" nutritional value. I am sorry that is sounded like I was...

    Re: feel like giving up

    mamwin, I suggested op do this. (Check some of her frozen milk for lipase odor.) She is trying to figure out whether or not she might want to scald her freshly expressed milk from here on out. Since...
  13. Re: Ache in breast only when not feeding

    yes it would also help to know about how often baby nurses and how weight gain is? is nursing otherwise comfortable?
  14. Re: Boosting low supply after plugged duct

    How about encouraging baby to nurse more often in general, or nurse more often on that side? Wouldn't nursing more often be more to the point for both increasing/maintaining normal weight gain and ...

    Re: Overactive Letdown?

    Ok, can you lean back though? Even just a little? Baby can be beside you or against your side, rather than on top- in other words, foot ball or any other baby position is possible while mom is...
  16. Re: 8 month old ALWAYS wakes up after 30 min - how to stop i

    Your baby's sleep pattern is entirely normal and there is nothing additional you need to do.

    It sounds to me you are happy to nurse baby to sleep in the first place, but wish baby would stay...

    Re: Overactive Letdown?

    For fast flow at the breast, I suggest nursing in a laid back position (you reclined, baby on top of you)

    For fast flow from bottle, what about paced feeding positioning and pauses? Should lessen...

    Re: Baby never seems satisfied

    HI freddieb. Welcome to the forum. It sounds like you are doing all you can for your baby after a rough start and are concerned! I have a few thoughts.

    Were these two weight checks done on the...

    Re: feel like giving up

    From what I am gathering, this problematic milk was milk that had been in the freezer quite a while, right? Before you assume anything, you might want to defrost and try a more recent sample.

    If...
  20. Re: Overactive letdown and Oversupply, at my wits end!

    How many times in 24 hours does baby nurse, and does she usually nurse on one side or both? Are you pumping? And how fast is baby gaining now, according to the last two weight checks, and when were...
  21. Re: Refusing one side after clogged ducts and mastitis

    Pain in the breast after nursing has a couple possible causes, and these might be related to a shallow latch.

    When there is a lot of milk coming at once, babies tend to clamp. If the breast is...

    Re: feel like giving up

    Hi, sorry you have had such a difficult time.

    Many babies are fine with lipase milk. If that is the issue, it is perfectly safe for baby to drink. Rancid milk smells rancid- like milk that has...

    Re: mastitis

    Hi. I also tend to overproduction, and with my third baby I had mastitis 3 times! I had never had it before, so this was a nice learning experience for me. :p

    Mastitis makes you feel awful, but...

    Re: White Nipples from Normal Feeding

    Nipple blanching is an indication of vasospasm. And baby clamping when nursing is something that leads to vasospasm. But usually vasospasm hurts mom- a lot! Especially immediately post nursing. More:...

    My three kids all went about transitioning to not nursing to sleep every time differently.
    Oldest needed to nurse to sleep most of the time right up into toddler hood. He would fall asleep in other...
