    Re: Pumping for Prem baby

    That's exactly when it all came together for us. When he finally came home, I had access to him (and him to me) anytime I wanted, in a comfortable place, with no wires and monitors and bells and...
  3. Re: How to build milk supply and pump while trying to feed every 2 hrs?

    Quakermomma beat me too it. Definitely breastfeed first, BEFORE you pump! You may be surprised to find that the extra stimulation by a baby instead of a machine can help with your production. ...

    Re: Pumping for Prem baby

    I was never able to pump more than 60ml at a time, and usually it was in the 30-40ml range. I used a hospital-grade double pump and I found that it helped if I pumped about 10 minutes, waited for 5...

    Re: HELP..my hair is falling out!!!!!

    You actually stop shedding hair while you're pregnant, so your body kinda makes up for it when your hormones change (again!) postpartum. The fun never stops! :p

    Re: Nursing every hour if not more...

    I completely agree with everything that DJSMom said. The "fourth trimester" can try your patience, but you'll have a much easier time if you just surrender yourself to your baby and enjoy this...

    Re: Pumping for Prem baby

    Hi:

    I responded to your other post earlier. About the nipples, we used the disposable Nuk nipples that the hospital sent us home with until they ran out. Then we used Avent bottles and the Avent...
  8. Re: Help - need some advice about breastfeeding prem baby

    I didn't get to really BF my 32-weeker until we got him home at 36 weeks. The hospital did not really "walk the talk" when it came to BF support. I did get to try about once or twice a day as he...

    Re: DHA Supplements?

    We use the Nordic Naturals line, too; we use the ProEFA fish oil supplement. My 3YO has been getting it for almost 2 years mixed in with his morning smoothie. My mother used to give us cod liver...

    Re: Growth Charts Question

    Thanks so much for all the affirmations and encouragement. DS has been weighed several times, always gaining about 4 or 5 oz. a week. But he's been REALLY fussy and screams like the dickens. He...

    Re: Burping

    Have you tried the "jiggle technique?" I learned about it from another poster on this forum, although I can't remember which post it was. Basically, you hold the baby on one knee, lean him forward...

    Growth Charts Question

    My 32-weeker is now 17 weeks old (9 weeks adjusted). He's not on the charts for weight (yet?), but he has been gaining 4-5oz. a week on breastmilk only. The pediatrician thinks he's underweight -...

    P.S. If you're thinking of reading it, too, I think it's called "The Happiest Baby on the Block" by Harvey Karp.

    Re: infrequent poo=gassiness??

    My DS has LOTS of gas, too, but he poops a lot. I'm not sure if there's a connection between less poop and more gas. But since less frequent poops are not readily indicative of a problem, what if...

    Discouraged about Supplementing

    I posted this in another area, but thought it might be appropriate here, too. Maybe I'm not producing enough?

    Re: Afraid to Stop Pumping

    He sleeps when he's not eating - he's 6 weeks old, but his due date hasn't even arrived yet (it was supposed to be 7-7), so that's pretty much what babies at this young age do, right? Eat and sleep,...
