    Re: Molars and Spit Up

    Hmm- I know those are ideas for GER (although in my personal experience not very effective for that) I think for drool having/encouraging child (who is well past the SIDS risk age as yours is) to...

    Re: Baby 6 days old, need help!

    Sorry I did not have an answer for your previous question- how are you feeling now?

    As far as gaining an ounce, yes v. good baby is gaining, but whether the gain is slow at this point is still...
  3. Re: Too late to wean daughter(3) before new baby arrives?

    I agree with Mommal.
    Maybe this would be a situation where very much decreasing nursing as opposed to full on weaning would be the best scenario. Not because I don't think you have "time" to wean-if...

    Re: Slow weight gain, need help!!

    Oh ugh I hope you don't get it as bad as I did. Anyway try to stay hydrated nurse your baby as much as you can you may see a dip in production if the illness is bad due to some dehydration but it...

    Re: Large Nipples

    Hi! can you explain what exactly happened when you try to latch baby early on or before baby had any bottles? And what you have tried as far as positioning or latch techniques?

    Also are you sure...

    Re: Molars and Spit Up

    I am sorry I have no advice about drool- but I do think excess drool is a reasonable explanation for the increased spit up. It sounds like baby is figuring out some ideas. I guess I would suggest not...

    Re: Molars and Spit Up

    Is it just gagging/spit up? Or vomiting like baby is ill? Is baby drooling much?
  8. Re: baby barely eats while awake...what to do?

    Many people do think it works this way, in general. This is why many lactation consultants will suggest the supplements not onlybe given AFTER nursing (or instead of nursing) but also, BEFORE...

    Re: Baby 6 days old, need help!

    That is fine. Just measure gain from 4 days to whatever tomorrow is- 8 days? Let us know what happens.

    I misspoke before, when I thought the weight check was off due to different scales. Of...

    Re: Baby 6 days old, need help!

    I understand being nervous- I had 6 years between my 2nd and third and I was nervous and lots of things really were different- I also have all cesarean births, and recovery is different each time I...
  11. Re: baby barely eats while awake...what to do?

    But awake or asleep does not matter- your baby did not only have only 7-8 ounces the whole 24 hour day. Right? That is what baby got in bottles. Baby also nursed. Don't you think baby gets anything...
  12. Re: How do you know when your oversupply has regulated itsel

    I read recently (in a 20 year old book) that a large percentage of formula feeding moms go though the same concerns- they become convinced that the formula they are using is causing baby to have...

    Re: Baby 6 days old, need help!

    Feeling engorged or super full, while common in the early weeks, is actually an indication that baby is not nursing often or effectively enough, OR, that mom has over production and baby could not...

    Re: Slow weight gain, need help!!

    If you are not currently on meds no reason to worry the meds are affecting your milk.

    Yes, very important to encourage baby to nurse as often and as long as baby will! If baby is not getting...

    Re: LOST!!!

    What increases milk production is the frequency of milk removal. That's why I suggested maybe combining pumping and hand expression in order to increase the overall milk removal frequency as it...
  16. Re: baby barely eats while awake...what to do?

    I think I'm a little confused. It sounds like your baby IS trusting that your breasts will feed him. And so he is nursing more and bottlefeeding less - isn't that what you want?
    Additionally it...

    Re: Slow weight gain, need help!!

    Are you still on any meds and what are they?
    I think it is a very good idea to get help. Whether the hospital lactation consultant are the best people to go to will simply depend on who they are and...
  18. Re: Nuby Teether Too Similar to Pacifier?

    This is only going to cause missed feedings if baby comforts on it to the point baby misses feedings. This is true of pacifiers as well, actually. It certainly looks very different than a typical...
  19. Re: Is This Still Considered Nursing on Cue?

    My opinion-

    Cue feeding NEVER means mom must drop everything every time and nurse at that second. Even a newborn sometimes has to wait if mom is momentarily unavailable, like, in the shower, or...

    Re: Slow weight gain, need help!!

    Letdowns happen throughout a feeding, typically.

    I am not sure why you want to give up. If a formula fed baby were gaining poorly, and yes this certainly does happen, you would work to solve the...
  21. Re: To start sippy cup? History of nursing strikes

    I think you are spot on. That sounds like a good definition of the issue of a very distractible baby. If a baby was miserable when not nursing, presumably baby would stop being distracted and just...
  22. Re: To start sippy cup? History of nursing strikes

    How old was baby when the other strikes occurred?

    Yes I understand you are worried, and I certainly wish nursing strikes on no one! I am just saying that what little evidence there is about why...

    Well I agree with mommal, because she knows way more about that stuff than I do!

    poop look and frequency sounds good, but fyi this diaper log describes what size poop "counts."...

    Re: Slow weight gain, need help!!

    I hope mommal does not mind if I jump in as I am on here right now.

    3 week old babies typically need to nurse at least 10-12 times in a 24 hour day. Often they nurse more often than that. So my...
  25. Re: To start sippy cup? History of nursing strikes

    Hi, I understand your concern, but here is how I look at it. If my baby had a history of nursing strikes already by 6 months old, I would not introduce any other liquids (even breastmilk) given any...
