    Re: BF 3 month old 6x a day?

    Thanks for the advice. I do flip him to the other side, and he just sucks a few times and pulls off crying. I've gone back and forth both sides, and if he's just not getting any, then I feel like I...

    Re: BF 3 month old 6x a day?

    Trust me, I know when I'm low. The let down takes longer, and he only nurses for about a min or two, and then pops off and he's fussy. It happened last night before bed, and I didn't have an option...

    Re: BF 3 month old 6x a day?

    He just went through a growth spurt four days ago. I boosted up my supply because he was demanding it. But then he went back to feeding 5x a day (8am, 11am, 2pm, 5pm, and 8pm) and once at...

    BF 3 month old 6x a day?

    Hi,

    My second son is three months old, and he nurses about six times a day. He's always a very happy baby. I haven't forced a schedule on him at all (I learned better with my first) but he has...

    Re: Chronic low milk supply

    I've tried the cal/mag supplement. I take them along with my multi-vitimin. I didn't mean to get snappy, it's just frustrating when I know that my son isn't getting what he needs. He's seven...

    Re: Chronic low milk supply

    It amazes me that every time I talk about low milk supply on this board, no one believes me. I've been nursing my son for seven months. I know by how much milk he's swallowing when he nurses and I...

    Re: It's WORKING!!!!

    Where did you order the DOM from? I'm experiencing low milk supply, and it's been chronic low milk supply right around my son's birthday each month.

    Chronic low milk supply

    I'm really getting frustrated that my son is now seven months and we're STILL having low milk supply issues. It seems to happen right around his birthday each month. Sometimes it's accompanied by...

    Thrush at six months??

    I've started getting white patches on my nipples and a lot of shooting pain. I had thrush with my son when he was about 2-4 weeks old, but all of a sudden now my son is six months I'm having the...
  10. Re: I can't seem to keep my supply up!

    Thanks for reassuring me. Yesterday I felt like I was low too, so I brought a bottle of 2oz with me to a friends house and gave it to him and didn't pump. Maybe that made things worse? I'm also...
  11. I can't seem to keep my supply up!

    I posted a few weeks ago that I felt like I was losing my supply. Well, a few days later I got my period, and ever since then my supply has NEVER been the same. My son is 4 months old, and I'm...

    Re: Weaning Pacifier

    He's 16 weeks old. The pacifier ordeal has been going on for three weeks now. I went through a low milk supply (I think it's getting much better) but nothing I do seems to help. I don't want to...

    Weaning Pacifier

    My son NEEDS his pacifier in order to fall asleep, and he wakes up several times at night crying for it. Sometimes it's withing 30 mins of being fed, so I know he's not hungry. What is a healthy...
  14. Low Milk Supply and Sleep for Baby

    I have been experiencing low milk supply for the last week, and am working to resolve this by increasing feeding and taking supplements. However, my son's sleep schedule is out of whack for some...
  15. Re: Calcium and Magnesium supplement to increase milk supply

    Now I'm thinking it is a combination of a lot of things. The feedings were spaced out in the evening, thus allowing me to get my period (which hasn't happened, but I've been having cramping and sore...
  16. Calcium and Magnesium supplement to increase milk supply

    I read here: http://www.breastfeed-essentials.com/menstruation.html about increasing my milk supply by taking calcium and magnesium. However, my husband talked to a pharmacist and they said that...
  17. Re: Scared I'm losing my supply!

    Three oz seems really low for an almost four month old, but maybe it's okay if I'm feeding him every 2 hrs or so.

    I think I've figured out the reason for my supply being so low. I've been...
  18. Re: Scared I'm losing my supply!

    We've been giving him 5oz in a bottle. 2oz seems WAY too low. I know the pump isn't 100% accurate, but do you think he's getting 5oz when I pump about 2?
    He weighs about 15lbs, I think.
  19. Re: Scared I'm losing my supply!

    It's been three days with a low supply. If I pump and it's been two hours since a feeding or the last pump, I pump about two oz.

    How long does it usually take to ramp up my supply. I feel like a...
  20. Re: Scared I'm losing my supply!

    I'm sorry I failed to mention that he's 15 weeks old. Thanks for the great advice. I just feel very guilty and discouraged and praying that I didn't mess up my nursing relationship with my son.
  21. Scared I'm losing my supply!

    It all started yesterday, I noticed that my supply was decreasing. It's all my fault because I was trying to hold over my son 8hrs at night because I knew that he could do it since he's done it...
  22. Re: Moms that Breastfeed on a Routine

    I couldn't find where it said that a baby should have 8 feedings a day until he is six months of age on the Academy of Pediatrics website.
  23. Re: Moms that Breastfeed on a Routine

    I appreciate everyone's response. Just to clarify, I don't abide by a strict schedule. I use a routine as a baseline for naps and feedings, but if he needs a feeding sooner, then of course he gets...
  24. Re: Moms that Breastfeed on a Routine

    Maybe I should ask the question: Those who feed on demand: approximately how many feedings do you average a day.

    I'm not here to debate attachment parenting vs. parent directed feeding, I just...
  25. Moms that Breastfeed on a Routine

    Those of you that feed on a routine basis, how many feedings do you do a day approximately?

    My son is 15 weeks old and a few weeks ago we changed our son to six feedings a day instead of seven. ...
