    Re: Need some virtual hugs...

    Could it be the pump? I think most professional grade pumps are only meant for about a year of use for someone working full time. Pump weaning is certainly doable at this point, but what about trying...
  2. Re: 4.5 month old really fussy at boob - low milk supply?

    :ita with PPs. Excessive fussiness and distractibility is pretty normal from 4-5 months.

    I had to eventually give up some lovin' for my husband even though I wasn't in the mood (not even a little...
  3. Re: Fussy, unhappy, constant pain during the day and while s

    Try nursing in a reclined position. I would lean back on a few pillows, put my baby on my stomach or chest, and let him latch. You might need to tweak the position quite a bit to find something that...

    Re: Estrace cream/return of AF

    Re: 18 month old fussing while nursing?

    That sounds like teething to me. The canines were a nightmare for us. Have you tried different positions? Mine often does better sitting more upright during teething, but had preferred side lying,...

    Re: How to night-wean

    :ita with everyone else. It sounds like it could be teething. If so, a dose of ibuprofen at bed time might help a little.

    Also if stress might be adding to your exhaustion, make sure to get a...
  7. Re: Still eating every 2 hours at 6 months... any suggestion

    You can try doing breast compressions while she nurses to get a little more milk into her, but it sounds like she's doing great so I'm not sure that it will make a difference or that it even matters...
  8. Re: Still eating every 2 hours at 6 months... any suggestion

    Can you put the bed against the wall so that the sleeping arrangement is wall, DD, you, DH?

    Also, if you suspect teething might be causing some night waking, you can try a dose of ibuprofen before...

    Re: Anemia in my 15 month old

    :ita No kidding. Mine would reject, reject, reject then toss everything on the floor. :eye I personally think it's best to go ahead with the supplement (but starting with only 30mg may be wise) while...
  10. Re: Still eating every 2 hours at 6 months... any suggestion

    My son nursed every 1.5-2 hours until well after his first birthday. He took 3 ounce bottles/cups until well after his first birthday. Breastmilk changes in composition as your baby grows so that you...

    Re: Anemia in my 15 month old

    I'm not sure what the 9.9 is referencing (hemoglobin maybe?) because there are many components to a CBC. If it's hemoglobin, then that's low but not terrible. Did your pediatrician do additional...

    Re: Worried, need help

    That's only true for breastfeeding (as in nursing at the breast). Breastfed babies cannot be overfed. However, babies cannot stop a bottle from leaking milk into their mouths and they must drink or...

    Re: Best sources of iron for a 9 month old?

    Turkey is higher in iron than chicken. If you braise beef in a slow cooker, it is really easy to shred. Lentils and beans are also high in iron and pretty easy for babies to eat. Leafy green...

    :ita Plus, in order to pump enough to maintain supply (2-3 hours around the clock), you will usually get far less rest than just cuddling in bed and nursing your baby. The antibodies in your fresh...

    Re: Egorgement after 11 weeks

    It could be a plug[s]. Often you feel a lump, but sometimes they are too deep to feel. I always felt an achy pain, like I had been punched in the breast. Give the breast a firm massage before every...

    Re: Pumping and Formula...

    If you're going to EP, you'll probably want to invest in a hands free pumping bra (I jerry-rigged something for myself). Pumping will go a lot faster if you can find a way to double pump.
