  1. Re: Questions from a pumping newbie...

    When you say you push for more at the end of a pumping session, what does that entail. Hands on pumping? I cannot stress enough how important hands on pumping is for a working mom. That means...
  2. Re: red breasts - what could this be?

    I was thinking this when I read this yesterday, too, but I am no expert. Just because you don't have a fever doesn't mean you don't have an infection. You said you had cracked nipples, which can...
  3. Re: serious biting and a traumatized mama

    I agree with maddieb, for now I would nurse as usual, try to stop the bite before it happens, and hope this is a short lived phase. In my narrow experience of two kids, they both had some biting...

    Re: start early or wait

    I have seen lots of people on this forum suggest this, but I have never had a pediatrician recommend this or seen literature support this, except with foods that are in the big-8 allergy foods, like...

    Re: start early or wait

    I would wait until 6 months, but I am kind of crazy opinionated about starting solids before babies are completely ready. Is she sitting up by herself and grabbing things with her hands and putting...
  6. Re: Baby doesn't wet diapers much at night?

    It is totally possible. If you subscribe to the theories of elimination communication (EC), babies are born with the desire to NOT eliminate on themselves and have to get used to diapers over time,...

    Re: From white to watery?

    You original description of having a smaller output, thinner milk, and a tender chest makes me wonder if you are not doing a thorough job of removing milk with your pump. (I don't want to say...

    Re: when to switch bottle nipples?

    If you are away from him 10 hours then 12-14 ounces is within normal. My son, who was petite, would regularly eat 14+ ounces during a 10 hour separation, then wake 3-4 times per night to nurse more....

    Re: Advisse about baby nourished

    Did I read that right? He drinks 8oz bottles? That is double the size of a typical BF baby bottle. 3x8 is 24oz in bottles alone! If that is not a typo, I would cut back on bottle size.

  11. Re: Brand new mom-so overwhelmed with breast feeding

    The latch is going to be on and off for a while, because she is still learning. It will get incrementally better until it is second nature and takes no thought at all. You said the football hold is...
  12. Re: Brand new mom-so overwhelmed with breast feeding

    Newborn baby hands do tend to get in the way. They are their own worst enemy sometimes, but they learn.

    If she is eating often, gaining weight, and having sufficient diaper counts, things sound...
  13. Re: baby constipated nurse wants me to give bottles

    So what you are saying is, the nurse decided to completely ignore the fact that you are breastfeeding, because it is easier to give a stock response for a bottle fed baby than consider your specific...

    Re: Nursing to Sleep: Time to Stop?

    I would estimate at least 9/10 online resources will tell you to stop nursing/rocking/back-rubbing baby to sleep by the time they are 3 months old. It is pretty much the standard. Because, how else...

    Re: Milk reserves

    One thing I found helpful for getting a little freezer stash while on maternity leave was to pump during my first morning nursing session. I would nurse her a couple times overnight, but during that...

    I agree with this completely. I tried to "teach" my son to sleep without BFing to sleep but all it did was make bedtime take hours. And we did this for a couple of months at different ages. Sleep...
