    Re: How much breastmilk?

    Ugh, never mind. The scale we have is useless! Not accurate enough for sure. Guess no test weighing for us!

    How much breastmilk?

    Hi all

    I am going to be doing test weights for my slow growing baby to see how much breastmilk he is taking in over a 24 hour period. I know there are doubts on whether or not this approach is...
  3. Re: Foremilk/hindmik and weight gain question

    Thanks mamas! That's what I was thinking - since I don't have an oversupply, then block feeding is probably not a great idea. I do try to make sure he gets a good amount of time at each breast, but...
  4. Foremilk/hindmik and weight gain question

    So my 6mo ds weighs just over 11lb, from just over 7lb at birth. I've tried heaps of things to improve weight gain, too much to detail here, and have gotten heaps of good advice already from you...

    Re: Poop questions

    Well, I don't eat eggs and dairy anyhow so they were already out, so from what I can remember... soy, corn, citrus, tree nuts, chickpeas, chocolate, tomatoes... can't remember if there was anything...

    Re: Poop questions

    No UTI, but honestly I was kind of hoping that since I've read UTI's can lead to weight gain issues and how nice it'd be to have this figured out!! :) He has a bad cold and cough now so I'm pretty...

    Re: Poop questions

    I try to feed him as often as he'll take it, but we went through a phase where he was so distracted all the time! That seems to have passed, but I sometimes wonder if these constant 'snacks' are...

    Poop questions

    Poop! So much fun eh? Sorry! :)

    Some background: DS is 6 months old and weighs 11lb 2, was 7lb 2 at birth - so as you can see we have been struggling with weight gain. Have tried lots of different...
  9. Question about More Milk Plus and blessed thistle/fenugreek

    When I started trying to up my supply I started with fenugreek and blessed thistle as separate supplements, 3 x 3 a day each which is what I read online to do. When I ran out of those I picked up...

    Re: Upper lip tie? What say you?

    Well ENT says no tongue tie but had never even heard of a posterior tongue tie so that doesn't seem very convincing! And they don't separate upper lip ties at all so no go there anyhow. Grrrr. Very,...

    Re: Upper lip tie? What say you?

    Re: Upper lip tie? What say you?

    I'm going to see our pedi tomorrow to talk to him. Considering asking for a referral to an EMT. I'm just not sure if it's an issue or not. There are so many 'might be' things it's driving me nuts!

    Re: Upper lip tie? What say you?

    Interesting! Our photos look similar yet my dentist was very clear it's a tie - just doesn't think it's an issue and that it's fairly common. Maybe your dentist says it's normal because he sees it...

    Re: Upper lip tie? What say you?

    We are back from the dentist! He has an upper lip tie, but not a tongue tie. He doesn't recommend snipping it. He says the literature doesn't support that - that it hasn't been proven to be a problem...

    Re: Question about 'fish lips'

    No, he's not gaining well. And if fish lips are the same as flanged then the article makes no sense to me - or at least that bit!

    Question about 'fish lips'

    I always thought baby's lips are to be flanged out when breastfeeding. This is a problem we have with getting a good latch. I was just reading about tongue tie and in an LLL article it talks about...

    Pumping output OK?

    I'm pumping to try and increase my supply - well, officially I am, but I'm being rather half hearted about it, pumping maybe twice a day only! I just don't have the time to do more and we have gotten...

    Re: Quick question about emptying breasts

    He's 13 weeks old. I haven't done the diaper trick in a while, since it didn't seem to help much (would wake him up of course but as soon as back on the breast he'd go to sleep quickly). He's a...
