  1. Re: 6 month old with low weight gain- did I get bad advice?

    Sorry...dang iPhone! Last month so I hope others will reply. I wish you could get a second opinion from another doctor.
    Hugs again, and I stand with you!! Sending support.
  2. Re: 6 month old with low weight gain- did I get bad advice?

    First, hugs to you. I know how devastating it can feel to have the pediatrician say your child isn't growing (fast enough). But he's so tall! Is his head circumference on track? i saw a post...
  3. Re: 5 month old troubles...teeth? Cold? It is rough!

    Oh - and will my supply suffer if he isn't eating as well? Total number of feedings has stayed the same (about 10 give or take) but sometimes he's only nursing on one breast, vs both. Or just...
  4. 5 month old troubles...teeth? Cold? It is rough!

    Hi all, I've posted here before about my LO being "skinny" when his dr suggested I try supplementing or rice cereal. That was a month ago and I did neither - just nursed more, stopped pumping for...
  5. Re: Probably teething (?), won't nurse today

    I'm watching for signs of ear trouble. He hasn't had a wet diaper in several hours now...I'm worried he is dehydrated. He is nursing right now, though! Fingers crossed this isn't a fluke.
  6. Probably teething (?), won't nurse today

    Hello,
    My 4 1/2 month old gets extremely upset (screaming, tears, arching backwards) today when I try to put him to the breast. I finally gave him some infant Tylenol which seemed to help (he did...
  7. Other tips to get baby to eat more / boost supply?

    Hi everyone,
    So it's been 2 weeks since our 4 month appt where I was freaked out by the pediatrician (telling me baby needed more milk b/c he dropped down on the percentile chart for weight. I have...
  8. Re: Breastfeeding, estrogen and hair loss?

    Hey ladies!
    So it was my question to the doctor that prompted her to say what she said, and then I had these thoughts later about milk supply. I'd asked if it was ok to take some biotin for my hair...
  9. Breastfeeding, estrogen and hair loss?

    Hello all - I'm curious to know if what my pediatrician (the same one who suggested supplementing recently - a different post of mine) is right that my hair is going to keep falling out as long as I...

    Re: 4 month old not gaining weight

    Yes - I didn't use the right word... it needs to be a routine, not a schedule! And every day is slightly different, either because of his needs, or whatever else is going on in our house. I...

    Re: Try to suck my nipple off!

    Mine does this too and I agree, it is painful! I don't know if it's just a form of play, or what. Maybe some other mamas will know.

    Re: 4 month old not gaining weight

    Thanks so much!! You ladies are helping me gain back some of the confidence I lost at the pediatrician on Friday. I've come to realize that breastfeeding is so dependent on the confidence of the...

    Re: 4 month old not gaining weight

    Thanks!! That makes me feel lots better. What my pediatrician said was basically "we see this a lot with 2nd or 3rd children, the moms are stressed and about this point (4 months) the milk quality...
