  1. Re: Still battling with poor weight gain..

    I think doing away with the dummy apart from emergencies is a great idea! They can trick baby into thinking they've fed when they haven't.

    Swaddling at night can make babies sleep longer too and...

    Re: keep or toss?

    Just taste/smell it before you use it. Sour milk should be pretty obvious :)

    Re: White Nipples from Normal Feeding

    My nipples do this all the time too! I just count myself lucky I don't tend to get pain with it unless it's cold. I have Raynards phenomenon in my hands and feet tho so I figure I must be prone to...

    Re: The beauty of following your child

    I so needed to read this today! As yesterday DH made an unkind remark that our 16 month *still* needs my breast to sleep, then last night DH questioned co-sleeping as we are looking to move house and...

    Am pleased it's going well for you both :)
  6. Re: How much worse can sleep seriously get?!

    It does get better! I thought babies slept better and better from 6 months plus but for us around the 11 months mark was the worst. DD literally went through a spell of every half hour.

    She's now...

    Re: Frequent Liquid Bowel Movements

    We use small pieces of terry towelling as cloths. There's actually a brand here in the UK called cheeky wipes that make them. You actually end up using less than commercial wipes I find as I can do...
  8. Re: Breast pain/injury after poor latch

    Hey there!

    Well done you for nursing twins this far :)

    It sounds like what you have is a milk blister/bleb. Quite often these 'pop' with nursing or failing that pumping if you have a pump. If...

    Re: Six month old, re-learn latch??

    It sounds like you are getting on top of it :)

    If I were you I'd consider a probiotic supplement if you need long term antibiotics. Anecdotally at least this seems to keep yeast from getting out...

    Re: Six month old, re-learn latch??

    Oh and babies can definitely change their latch, they have to with all that growing they do, plus teeth coming in etc!

    Re: Six month old, re-learn latch??

    Hey there :)

    Going back to basics and varying nursing positions is a great idea to deepen latch. Reclined/biological nurturing positions are said to help with latch as are nipple tilt, flipple,...
  12. Re: Night nursing toddler - when does it get easier?

    Hey there!

    I don't know when it gets easier - DD is younger than yours. But... If your cycle is back, nursing or not you are able to conceive!

    Pregnancy may give your child a 'natural' nudge...

    Re: Period returning?

    Babies are designed to suckle and so it is rare/unlikely that they are going to expend more energy than they are gaining from the milk. In my experience when a paediatrician said this to me what was...
  14. Re: So let this be a warning to you pumpers....

    Just because milk is ok in the fridge for a few days doesn't mean it's not lipase. It's worth rotating freezer stashes and taste testing occasionally! :)

    Re: Oversupply to Undersupply?

    My understanding is black feeding is only supposed to be done for a limited time. I'm not sure how he that translates to pumping tho. But I wouldn't continue to block feed if you have supply issues. ...

    Re: Breastfeeding all night! Help!

    I just wanted to say you haven't created a sleep association... Babies are born to suckle to sleep. Nature made the that way. It has a fancy term.

    Personally I find it easier to soothe to sleep...

    A tongue tie is a pretty common reason for latch issues and nipple damage. I would seek a third opinion on whether it needs revising or re discuss it with the IBCLC in relation to the fact you are...

    Re: nursing on one side

    Your baby sounds like a typical newborn! They sleep and when they wakes up they act as tho they are STARVING. It's typical for latch to be different on different sides no two nipples are exactly the...

    If your day is only 5 hours and he feeds right before you leave and can feed when you are back he may just be holding out for you! As long as he can catch up when you are back it shouldn't be an...
