    Re: crying and pulling off the breast

    If milk is spraying out when he unlatches, then I would say NOT slow letdown. Do you let the spray go into a towel till it calms down and then try to re-latch?

  3. Re: Baby prefers one breast to the other

    First, this is not uncommon, most moms are lopsided and many babies have a preference.

    Second, this isn't necessarily a "problem" and many moms nurse just one side so it is really up to you if it...
  4. Re: Feeling attacked by husband, dentist, and doctor

    It's bottles at night that destroy teeth since a bottle will continue leaking until the milk or juice don't reach the nipple anymore and that milk or juice will sit in baby's mouth. Also the way...

    Re: Baby reacting badly to breast milk

    It really doesn't work well to be cutting out all possible allergens at once because as you notice, you can't really live well on rice alone.

    Re: Hand pump or hand expressing

    To help keep or build up the supply on that side, have you tried always offering that side first? I know that doesn't help much for me since I think part of my low producing side is because DS...
  9. Re: Questions about pumping to increase supply

    Definitely keep nursing on demand and offer to nurse extra as well to help increase supply and if there is an evening break when you think you can fit in a daily power pumping session for a while...

    Re: Feeling alone

    I'm so sorry to hear that your husband isn't supportive of breastfeeding! That makes it sooooo hard.

    Re: Something besides cow milk...

    Remember that you don't "have" to begin weaning at 1 year unless that is what YOU think is best. Please don't let Doctors, dentists, family, or society tell you to wean before YOU and BABY are...

    Re: Smacking while eating

  13. Re: Questions about pumping to increase supply

    The way milk supply works is that your body learns to refill the breasts according to what the normal demand is. So perhaps the first couple times you pump, if baby nurses shortly thereafter, they...

    Re: No weight gain

    Pumping only 2-3 oz at a pumping session is actually perfectly NORMAL (those women who fill bottles at a pumping session are the extraordinary ones.)

    Re: Oversupply? Late engorgement?

    Re: No weight gain

    My LO's weight slowed way down by 4 months (however our original doctor didn't tell us to give vitamin D drops and I now suspect that may have contributed to the slow weight gain since now at over 6...

    That time of day between about dinner time and bed time often also gets called the witching hour because babies tend to be fussy that time of day too. Stress also plays a roll. It is not uncommon...
