    Re: dry flaky scalp

    My ds had the same until about 5 months. We tried almost everything at home, and ended up using Head & Shoulders Sensitive formula for 3 days, which cleared it up. My pedi said it was fine to use...

    My ds is almost 7 months... He slept through the night the enitre month of May, then started getting up again 1-2, sometimes 3 or even 4 times a night to nurse again. He would often eat really well...

    My cousin has exclusively pumped for 7 months. She only attempted nursing for the first couple of days in the hospital. Her lo would only nurse on one side, and pumping just worked better for both...

    Re: Ringworm?

    We dealt with a strain of ringworm when I was about 3 months pregnant with ds. My kids had it and needed to take Griseofulvin. I fought with it using antifungal cream (only certain ones) for 4...

    Re: flushed baby when eating

    I have no idea why this happens, but I could have written your post. My ds gets really flushed, but is patchy too when he nurses. I have noticed it is worse when my letdown is really strong, I...

    I also had a strange almost depressed feeling when nursing in the beginning with my ds. It was almost a sick feeling, but passed shortly after letdown. I also got it with pumping, but I no longer...

    Re: Thrush or not?

    I don't know a lot about Raynaud's, but have had thrush several times. Those symptoms you are describing are what I had with thrush. Only one nipple ended up really bad with cracking and bleeding,...

    Re: Nystatin cream and lanolin?

    How long have you been treating yourself? If less than two weeks or so, it may be the thrush that is still causing the pain. I found that the lanolin didn't seem to help much when we have thrush,...

    Re: First bottle-feeding unsuccessful

    What kind of bottle did you use? I know some babies are very sensitive to the type of bottle/nipple. Any bottle will cause some air (my opinion, anyway), but some work better than others, depending...

    Re: Surprise! We have thrush... any advice?

    We, too have been struggling with it. We get it, clear it up fairly easily, and have it back again within a month or so. It's sad, but I've almost gotten used to it. We just keep everything on...

    Re: Cracked nipples

    I've had cracked nipples several times. Mine look line little lines along where the areola and nipple meet usually. There is kind of an opening if you stretch it a little. They have only bled when...

    Re: Absence in mid of Elimination Diet

    How did he do on formula in the beginning? That's hard since you know he may be uncomfortable while you are away if you use the ebm that you have stored, but don't want to use formula either.

    My son only nurses about 10 minutes total each time he eats, and only on one side. I think it just depends on the baby and on the mom (and her milk supply/let down etc). All three of mine only...
