    This is my third baby, he's 4 months old, and I've never dealt with anything like this before. I've been horribly sick all week with a stomach flu, and last night I woke up with a very sore spot on...

    Sudden pain at 7 weeks?

    Baby is 7 weeks old today, and breastfeeding has been going very well so far. He's gone from 8.4 lbs to almost 12 lbs, so he's gaining well, and has lots of wet/poopy diapers. The thing is, I'm...
  4. Re: What supplies do I need if I am going to breast feed?

    I agree with everything said above! Something that's helped me is to have a little box of baby stuff I take with me to whatever room I'm in. Especially in the first couple weeks when you're...

    Is it normal for baby to get a small, clear blister on his lip from nursing? (He's 4 weeks old). My daughter got a small one on her upper lip when she was a newborn, but his is taking up most of the...

    Re: Washable nursing/breast pads

    I LOVE using washable nursing pads. I just wanted to throw in a good word about Bamboobies - I've tried several different brand and they're my favorite by far. they're the only ones I've never leaked...
  8. Stressing over upcoming trip away from baby...

    Next month my husband and I will be taking a weekend trip away from our kids (3 year old and 5 month old baby) to celebrate our 5 year anniversary. I'm stressing about it so bad! My biggest issue is...
  9. Re: BF going TOO well? She won't take any artificial nipples

    Thank you all so much for the ideas and support! I think we've figured out that my husband can take her at church for the hour I'm teaching, which will help me a lot. I just feel bad for him, because...
  10. BF going TOO well? She won't take any artificial nipples.

    My baby is 2 1/2 months old, and we're doing great with breastfeeding, no real problems so far. My only complaint is, she will NOT take a bottle or binky. She's taken a bottle (reluctantly) for her...

    My 9 week old baby started, of her own volition, sleeping through the night this past week. She usually goes to bed at 7-8 and wakes up around 4ish, and again at 7. Is that ok? I'm feeding her on...

    Yeast question... Is it thrush?

    While on a camping trip this weekend I noticed that my nursing pads and baby's poop had a yeast smell to them. I know thrush is an overgrowth of yeast, so that was the first thing I thought of. BUt,...
  13. Re: How to successfully breastfeed the 1st week?

    The best advice I got was to nurse on demand, and frequently. I just nursed her as often as she'd let me - it was about every hour for the first few days. Just expect the baby to be pretty much...
  14. Re: When to start thinking about changing my diet?

    I don't know if I've resolved the OAL/OS, but it's definitely better than it was. I just don't know what else I can do to help it, basically. I just feel horrible she's in so much discomfort, I want...
  15. When to start thinking about changing my diet?

    My baby is 3 1/2 weeks old. She spits up very frequently; most of the time it's not much, but occasionally it'll be forceful projectile vomiting (like once or twice a day). Her diapers are normal -...

    Re: Am I overfeeding her?!

    Thank you, everyone, for the great advice! This has really helped me a lot. I do think the problem is just that I'm making too much milk right now. I think its coming out too fast for her. I'm super...

    Re: Am I overfeeding her?!

    Thanks, I'll try that! I did that once today and it seemed to help, I'll have to start doing it more often. Her cord stump just fell off today, (yay! :) ) so once that's all healed I'll start doing...

    Re: Am I overfeeding her?!

    Thanks for all the great advice! I spoke to my hubby about it - I didnt want to be constantly defending myself every time I feed her. He understood completely once I explained it to him. He really is...

    Re: Am I overfeeding her?!

    ...so should I unlatch her after a few minutes to burp, then re-latch? I already burp between sides, but most of the time she only takes one side anyway.
