    Re: I think DS is done! :0(

    If I were you, I would keep pumping and offering the breast. He could just be going through a nursing strike. It sounds like you are sad about it, and I just want you to know that it does not have to...

    Teething disrupting feeding?

    It would appear that Collin is on a feeding strike. At first I thought it was a nursing strike, with a lot of recent struggles to keep him latched and keep him from biting, but DH reports his...

    Re: Thrush again

    We battled thrush in the early weeks of bfing. It was a nightmare. I first noticed that the left nipple burned and tingled during and after each feed. Then it turned a darker pink then normal. A few...
  4. Re: Vomiting, diahrrea... Breastfeeding OK???

    We just went through a stomach bug and I continued to nurse as much as Collin would allow. I think it's what kept him from dehydrating while he was vomiting and had diarrhea.

    Re: Stomach bug??

    I called the peds. office and they said to bring him in. So we are going to see the Dr at 4 pm. I hate this, it always makes me so nervous when they are sick...I've been unable to get him to nurse...

    Stomach bug??

    So Collin's been spitting up quite a bit lately, and I didn't think much of it really...I just assumed it would ease up as he gets more mobile and sits up more. Well the spitting up has turned into...

    Re: Vomiting every morning

    Hmmm, I'm not sure what might be going on there. Are you sure it's diarrhea? It's not just loose breast milk stool? Have you contacted the Dr about the diarrhea and vomiting? Has he recently started...

    Re: Is this a sign of thrush?

    This just sounds like normal spitting up to me. With thrush there should be white patches in the baby's mouth, that can not be easily wiped off. You would also be experiencing nipple burning,...

    Re: Stuffy nose question..

    Keep him propped upright or semi-upright as much as possible. It's good that the mucous is more watery, and if it's running, even better :)....I did hear that the nasal aspirator can damage the...

    Re: anyone ever

    In my experience, it seems like the best chance he has of not catching something, is if I do have it. The only time he's gotten sick was with RSV, and I did not have it. Our breast milk is full if...

    Re: What is Thrush?

    Thrush is a yeast infection. It can occur on your nipples, and if left untreated can even invade the milk ducts. The baby almost always picks it up from Mom and gets it in the mouth, presenting...

    Re: Help please!!

    I dont think I've ever heard of this before! Do you have a lactose intolerance or anything like that? I know that I dont drink milk enough, or eat enough dairy, so when I do have dairy, I always get...

    Re: When is it ok to introduce a pacifier

    I would wait till at least the 6 week mark, just so your milk production is regulated and he's fully got the hang of nursing. Avent makes good pacifiers for bfing babies.

    Re: Self image I may send my daughter.

    I have two girls who were 5 and 6 when COllin was born. I am usually pretty self-consious as well, but I explained to the girls that this is how baby's eat, just like baby kittens and puppies. They...

    Re: How long?

    Collin is 5 and a half months, and has been spitting up PROFUSELY for the last two weeks....his laundry has at least doubled! I am hoping this is the peak and it will slow down at 6 months!
