    Is it possible...

    That a baby just won't ever learn a correct latch or suck no matter how much time or effort you put in? My baby is nearly 11 weeks old and we have had problems since day one. It's better than it was,...
  2. Re: 6 weeks & struggling - poor latch, tongue tie *LONG*

    I was finally able to have a hands-on visit with a very experienced IBCLC today. She said his mouth looks good, his palate is not particularly high. But he definitely has an uncoordinated,...
  3. Re: So frustrated with persistent latch problems with my tod

    It's been a long, long time since I was around here last, but I came back looking for information to help with my new baby and thought I'd update this thread. It turns out my older son, the one I...
  4. Re: 6 weeks & struggling - poor latch, tongue tie *LONG*

    It's been a long time since I was last here, but I came back hunting for information since I'm struggling with my new baby and I found your post. Much of what you are describing sounds so familiar....
  5. Re: So frustrated with persistent latch problems with my toddler

    Zero possibility. I've been getting my period regularly and DH is away at Navy boot camp. I've had these sensations as well as the emotional reaction to them since he was about 3 months old, after...
  6. So frustrated with persistent latch problems with my toddler

    I haven't been around at all really the last few months, life got really crazy...but I really need some ideas with this.

    DS is 13 mo and we've had latch issues on and off since birth. I've never...

    Re: Question about honey.

    Side note on this thread...so is honey definitely ok after 12 months? I thought I read somewhere that they are now saying it should be avoided until age 2, but I can't remember where. :scratch DS is...

    Re: solids and throwing up

    I kind of sounds to me like she is either getting too full, too fast, or she is just not ready yet, since she throws up some time after eating rather than right away because of gagging...

    Re: One-sided feeding at night?

    Sounds about like what I was thinking. I have been very full on the left this morning! I might pump a little in slowly decreasing amounts to ease the discomfort/OALD. I need to rebuild a little bit...

    One-sided feeding at night?

    DS is 10 months old and we are still struggling with latch and discomfort issues. He gets plenty of milk and seems quite happy with the way things are. But he strongly insists on a shallow latch and...
  11. Re: I'm worried about my friend's baby! What would you do?

    I agree wholeheartedly as well. My DS is 10 months old and still nurses at least every 2 hours during the day, 3-4 at night, sometimes more often. And this is in addition to solids, although he...
  12. Re: Is/Was your baby a 25th % (weight) child but healthy?

    DS started out at the 45th % and slowly dropped and has been under the 10th % for a couple of months now according to the CDC charts, which are based on mostly formula fed infants. On the WHO charts,...
  13. Re: Pediatrician worried about DS weight gain

    I agree with the pp also. It sounds like your baby is doing just fine, is healthy in all other regards and is gaining according to his own normal pattern. My DS is very lean and fairly long as well...
  14. Re: PROBLEMS @4wks ? OALD / Low Supply

    It honestly doesn't sound like you have a supply problem. Pumping is a learned skill and even with a great pump and experienced pumper, it still does not compare to a human baby. I know you know, but...
  15. Poll: Re: Poll: What age did you introduce solids?

    We started just after 6 months but I'm really laid back about it. At 9 months, 99% of his nutrition is still BM. I pretty much just give him little bits of what I'm eating (pieces of bread or rice,...

    Re: odd new baby behavior

    Her vision is probably starting to develop to where she is able to see a little bit of the world around her and is interested in it. If that's the case, taking her into a quiet, dimly lit room should...

    Re: when to introduce almond butter?

    I'm wondering this also. 9mo DS likes little bits of bread. I'd love to give it to him with a little peanut or almond butter if it's safe.

    Re: OH CRAP!! Left milk out overnight!

    Was it in a bag with an ice pack or just sitting right out on the counter?

    If it was iced, and it smelled and tasted fine, I personally would feel ok using it in a pinch. BUT keep in mind that is...

    Re: Nursing necklace?

    I have a Mommy Necklace also. I love it! Very stylish but indestructible. DS has liked playing and fiddling with it since he was about 5 months old.

    It helps to keep the claws regularly trimmed,...

    Re: breast milk causing problems?

    DS did this too for the first couple of months. Gassy and uncomfortable for a while but they figure out how to master this new skill. As long as her poops are a normal yellowish color and not hard or...

    Re: Breastfeeding and Biting

    Ugh! Dealing with this with DS who is just 9 months. He's also teething, and goes through cycles...seems to bite most when a new tooth is about to come in or has just popped through. Must be either...

    Re: Hiccups

    DS hiccupped all.the.time. up until about 5 or 6 months. For sure after every feeding! And he hated. He would scream until they went away. Interestingly enough, the screaming seemed to make them go...
  23. Poll: Re: Our NB Breast Feeding vs Staff Pushing Formula Experience

    We had a pretty good experience, although looking back I would have liked to actually spend time skin to skin with DS. It was a difficult birth (no c-section...but just barely) and I was wiped out...
  24. Re: 4.5 mo frequent feeds / slow gain advice pls

    The best way to encourage weight gain is to nurse as frequently as baby will accept it.

    Other reasons baby may suddenly be nursing more frequently are getting ready for a new milestone, going...
  25. Re: Confused and wanting to quit all this!

    Great post from Mommal. Agree with all of it.

    As far as sleep, baby sleeps with me. You could also do a bassinet or crib next to your bed. Learn to nurse in the side-lying position. It took us a...
