  1. Re: Problems with introduction of solids, 10 month old

    Hi there! I just wanted to recommend a book on children's growth and eating habits, My Child Won't Eat" by Carlos Gonzales. It is a truly enlightening book that dispels many myths about growth and...

    Re: When to decrease pumping at work?

    Just wanted to say that pump weaning doesn't necessarily mean total weaning. When I went back to work with DS who was 14 months, I did not pump but still produced enough to nurse in the morning...

    Re: Engorged overnight

    Personally I think going 8 hours is too long, and yes it would be painful. Here are a few things you could do:

    1. Try offering both breasts. If baby nurses for 20 minutes total, nurse on one side...

    Re: Reassurance, tips...HELP!

    Hoping things are going well for you. My baby wouldn't do much with the bottle when I started back to work; she was 12 weeks. The first day she drank 4 oz for an 8 hr separation, the next day it...

    Re: 3 month old eats all night

    I went through this not too long ago when my LO was 3.5 months. It lasted for 5 weeks....I was very tired. Then she started sleeping 3-4 hr chunks again and it was wonderful! This week we're back...

    Re: How long to pump

    Here's what I do:

    Baby eats anywhere from 8-12 oz per day at day care, just depends on her appetite I suppose. I send 13 oz of milk every day, and my care provider has about 20 oz frozen stashed...
  7. Re: Recurrent Plugged Ducts/Mastitis..Help!

    Something else to consider--if you have always been prescribed Keflex for the mastitis, you may have a strain of bacteria that is resistant. When I had mastitis (several times), my OB took a breast...

    Possible thrush

    DD, almost 5 months old, was on amoxicillin for 7 days. Yesterday I took her into the dr for a rash (dr thinks it's viral) and I had her check baby's mouth. The cheeks and lips look fine, but the...

    Re: Caffeine while nursing???

    I've done some experimenting on this. My 4 month old is currently waking constantly at night, so I thought maybe the coffee I drank in the morning was affecting her since I did not have any while...

    Re: Pumping at work question

    Something else to keep in mind is that care givers often think baby is hungry when really he might be tired, bored, needing snuggles, etc. Giving a bottle is often easier, and who would say no to a...

    Re: Pumping at work question

    I doubt he's consuming 4 oz every time your nurse. Pump output is not necessarily related to how much baby will nurse. For example, this morning at work I pumped 7 oz--no way would DD consume that...

    Re: Pumping at work question

    What kind of pump are you using? What setting? How long do you pump? I found that if increase the suction a bit it yields more milk in less time. I currently use the Medela Pump in Style on a medium...

    Re: Pump going out? Help!

    Thanks for the helpful replies. So far, the problem has not repeated itself in the past 2 days. I did call Medela, and the rep didn't make a guess as to what might be wrong, but she was going to...
  14. Re: latch / unlatch / latch / unlatch - driving me NUTS

    My 3 month old is doing the same thing right now. Particularly the first of the morning feed--she's been asleep all night and now wants to socialize with me--and also the first nursing session when...

    Pump going out? Help!

    Today I was using my pump and the motor noise sounded like it slowed for a few seconds, then resumed normal "rotation" (the cycling noise the pump makes as it sucks in and out). It did this several...
  16. Re: Light at the end of the tunnel with nipple pain?

    Things will get better, but you should see a lactation consultant to be sure there aren't other issues. My son had a tongue tie but was gaining fine. I, on the other hand, had cracks, bleeding, and...

    Another thought: could baby be teething? My son got his first tooth at 4 months but was teething (excessive drooling, chewing on everything, etc) about a month before. As an early teether his sleep...

    Re: Pumping at Work

    Agree with PP. If you still think you need more, you could try pumping after the 6:45 feed, even if only for a few minutes (getting everyone and everything ready for work is chaotic!). I pump after...

    I feel you here. I'm also returning to work next week and DD will be 12 weeks. We are doing 2 part time days this week to get her used to day care. Yesterday went ok except that she's not keen on the...

    New pump?

    I'm starting back to work next week full time and will be pumping. I have a Medela double electric pump (like the PIS but the basic one the WIC office gave me) from baby #1. I was hoping with the new...

    Re: Pumping Pain

    I'm not an expert but do try the larger shields, 27 mm. That's what I use. You don't want any part of the nipple to touch the shields when it's drawn up. 20 minutes is a bit much. Perhaps cut back...

    I can also relate. I have a 7 week old and a 3 year old. The baby nurses every hour and my toddler has been acting out to get attention. It's very difficult and I struggle every day. Sometimes my mom...

    Re: Mastitis, healing fissures

    I also wanted to add that if you are still having pain after so many days of GV then it's probably a latch issue. You may want to have your LC reevaluate the latch and basic techniques. It may take...

    My LC said I could use the APNO for 2 weeks. With my first, however, I used it daily for about 6 months because I had a crack on one side that just wouldn't heal, even after seeing a dermatologist...
