  1. Re: How many mL or oz should my 3 week old be eating? Is he getting enough?

    You're doing a great job, mama!
    Three weeks is prime time for a growth spurt. It's totally normal for him to be nursing much more frequently. In fact you WANT to put him to the breast as much as...

    Re: please help

    We did this as well. If baby doesn't wake up right away, it may give you enough time.

    And we also just moved to the other side of the bed, sometimes the floor, to have our time. We have a...

    Re: Help Please! ASAP

    Apart from getting help with the latch, from a LC (preferably a certified LC) or a LLL Leader,
    I'd suggest lots of Lansinoh - she does NOT want scabs to form because they'll just get ripped off at...

    Re: Help! How to wean?

    Sometimes, the best thing to do is to back off of the weaning thing for a little while. It can become a real issue and make the child cling even more to nursing. They can view it as very scary and...

    Re: Not pooping....

    It sounds like the only "binding" food that's giving him a problem could be the cereal.
    I would try just regular oatmeal. The whole grain and fiber will help get him going.
    And since his poop...

    Re: Not pooping....

    I would try stopping the cereal all together (he doesn't need it anyway) and other "binding" foods like bananas, cheese, white bread/pasta. I would also back off on lots of different solids - maybe...
  8. Re: 5 Month old & breast milk intake - SSL

    This could be lots of things.
    Beginning of teething - do you see any gum swellling or increase in drooling, chewing on hands? You could try cold chew toys, baby orajel, teething tablets, etc. ...

    Re: Bf etiquettte

    Starting around that age, I'd just tell my DD - If you want to nurse, you need to be still. And then follow through - I'd end the nursing session, offer her a cup of water or a snack. She got the...

    Re: screams during BM

    What is the consistency of the BM? Is it firm, dry, hard? That could indicate that he's not getting enough milk or he's constipated.
    If it's loose, yellow, seedy - then it's normal poop. And some...

  13. Re: many diet restrictions due to eczema - should I switch to formula?

    I know for a FACT that I've seen several infants (I was a nanny) who had excema flare ups due to soap, cleaners being used in the home, air freshners, lotions, perfumes, animals, etc.
    One family...
  14. Re: many diet restrictions due to eczema - should I switch to formula?

    I think your diet sounds fine. Even mothers in impoverished countries with VERY poor nutrition make good breast milk.
    So, I sure that your diet is more than adequate to make wonderful food for...

    No, there's no way your child would ever hate you, so don't even worry about that. A YEAR of breastmilk is awesome and so much more than most babies ever get. You can always be proud of that...

    Re: 4 days no BM

    Exclusively breastfed babies often start spacing out their poops around 6 weeks, so it's probably just a normal change in development. Some exclusively BF babies only poop once a week or even less,...
