    Re: Jaundice

    These first 8 weeks your LO should be nursing every 2-3 hours at least (or 8-12 hours per day). Note: In other countries where baby-wearing and breastfeeding is the norm, some babies will eat far...

    Re: Ready to give up...

    Just wanted to say that there is hope!

    I nursed my DS for 1-1.5 hours out of 2 hours for the first 5 weeks. I suppose I could have had supply issues (c-section due to IUGR concerns) but I knew...

    Re: Too Much Turkey!?

    There actually isn't enough tryptophan in your milk after consuming large amounts of turkey to make LO sluggish. My DS has been sluggish since Thanksgiving, and I attributing it to all the...

    Re: can baby benefit from probiotics?

    I meant to say Happy Bellies. You can buy them through diapers.com, amazon.com, and might be able to find it a your local babies r' us (if you have one). I also like the fact that their food also has...

    Re: Failure to thrive...

    I have a LO with severe reflux who even failed to gain weight for a few weeks at one point. He was born weighing 6lbs 4ozs, and he has dropped from the 10th percentile to the 3rd-4th percentile. I...

    Re: cereal at 3.5 mos?

    I have a reflux baby too. He has severe reflux, which is now under control but initially led to weight loss.

    First, as PP mentioned, AAP recommends breastmilk only until 6 months. As for adding...
  8. Re: 11 week old the size of four month old

    I agree with the PPs who've mentioned finding a new pediatrician. I'm on the opposite end of the spectrum with a very little one (3rd-4th percentile). Fortunately, I have a very supportive...

    Re: Fighting with nature!!!

    I'm afraid I don't necessarily have advice other than contact a lactation consultant and/or LLL leader. If you really want to breastfeed, they can provide you with the advocacy and support you need....
  10. Re: 1 month old spitting up all of a sudden

    It could be overactive letdown or developing reflux. I have OAL, and my DS has severe reflux. His reflux started worsening between 3-5 weeks so you might be dealing with reflux development. As for...

    Re: can baby benefit from probiotics?

    My DS was on antibiotics at 6.5 months for due to infection. I did Happy Babies Oatmeal with probiotics during this time, and it helped tremendously. You might consider adding probiotics to her diet...
  12. Re: desperate - baby feeding tons at night

    Do you family bed or cosleep? I ask b/c we do a combination of both, and that has been the only way I get enough rest at night. My DS is 7 months and still eats at least 2-3 times per night and wakes...

    Re: weight slow 6 1/2 month old

    She sounds great to me! My DS weight gain dropped dramatically at 4 months (0.5-1 ounce per week). He's not even 15 pounds at 7 months. However, as his pedi says, look at the baby and not the scale....

    Re: when will it get better

    Yes, it absolutely will get better. My DS was this way the first 7.5 weeks then he started getting much better. He was like your LO with falling asleep at the breast, and it definitely made it...

    Re: 10 m/o not tolerating solids

    If he reacts to everything, he likely just has an immature gut still. My LO is like that, and he is 7 months old.

    Babies can survive and thrive on breastmilk alone for 12 months or more so at...

    Re: Cold/Sick while breastfeeding

    We've just been through a cold followed by the flu so I understand any worries about breastmilk and meds. Generally speaking, decongestants are a no-go when breastfeeding as the same medicine that...

    Re: Reflux question.

    Undoubtedly, the caffeine could be affecting her.

    Also, DS has severe reflux, and while we found some relief with Zantac, we had to switch to Prevacid for true relief.

    So, you might find two...

    Re: need some advice

    Your DS sounds similar to my DS, who has severe reflux and is nearly 7 months. His feeding patterns can differ greatly from week to week. Unless DS is prone to nursing strikes, I would trust that he...
  19. Re: Suddenly fussy and impatient nurser

    Sounds like the 4 month transition. The 4 month mark was full of transitions for most of the mommies I'm friends with. And, nursing changes was definitely one of them. It was an issue of distractions...

    Re: Need advice, any will help....

    I agree with the PPs. First, it's great that your pedi trusts that your milk is providing enough for your LO. My little man is 6.5 months, is exclusively breastfed, and is in the 4th percentile...
  21. Re: foremilk/hindmilk imbalance from pumped milk?

    If it is a foremilk/hindmilk issue, be sure you're continuing to pump an additional 2-5 minutes after your breasts seem empty as you may not be pumping enough of the hindmilk.

    But, I must say I...

    Re: Breast pain, help!!

    As a PP stated, it sounds similar to thrush.

    I've been through many cases of clogged ducts and a few bouts of mastitis so I understand the pain of nursing on a painful side. I also have weird...

    I understand your situation completely.

    My DS nursed around the clock for the first 3-4 weeks. I essentially switched him from side to side 24/7. I survived by sleeping in a recliner and keeping...

    Re: not sure whats going on

    My LO started doing something similar at 3 months. It was related to worsening reflux. Your LO could have silent reflux. He would unlatch and scream when nursing and put his hands in his mouth. He...
