    Re: Failure to thrive - thoughts?

    He can't be in my bed because he's a tummy sleeper and we have a pillow top mattress. I don't have a cosleeper, not sure DH would be willing to pick one up because DS is likely our last baby.

    Re: Failure to thrive - thoughts?

    He's been sleeping 10-12hrs straight since right around 3 months, which I guess is where he leveled out with the weight gain.

    He's not been getting water other than one really hot day he got a...

    Failure to thrive - thoughts?

    Background: My DS is 6 months as of yesterday. He's a happy little dude - smiling, laughing, "talking" all the time, awake for 2 hrs at a time between naps, and active as can be (doesn't sit...

    Re: Tips for dealing with a snacker?

    No family nearby, and DH "doesn't do housework" - he also works 60 hrs a week, so he isn't even sort of willing to help at night.

    Honestly, I don't care much about the pictures of sleeping babies,...

    Re: Tips for dealing with a snacker?

    He doesn't have a problem with my letdown any other time of the day but evening. The choking/gagging is during feedings but also between - or was, before reflux meds.

    I have to say, going longer...

    Re: Tips for dealing with a snacker?

    So, I broke down and had DH give him one of the Similac nursers from the hospital. dS took 1oz, and I pumped about 4oz. DS proceeded to sleep for FIVE hours.

    Now, don't get me wrong, I'm...

    Re: Tips for dealing with a snacker?

    He stays awake the whole feeding probably 75% of the time, comes off on his own and then shows no interest in more. In fact, even if I get him to latch back on, he gets mad when he starts getting...

    Tips for dealing with a snacker? - UPDATE

    My 8-week-old is a big time snacker... he will only nurse on one side per feeding, and either falls asleep when I burp him or after burping he's just not interested in taking the other side. Then...

    Re: Pacifier use

    I don't do the mentioned things for helping with oald only because technically it's not - my milk doesn't spray at letdown, and those techniques don't seem to change how DS handles things. It's...

    Pacifier use

    DS will be 6 weeks tomorrow, and I am fairly certain he is going through the 6 week growth spurt. He also has pretty severe reflux and laryngomalacia.

    Anyway, while I don't think I have an...

    Re: Advice for building supply

    I was pumping 3x while she was at daycare, but last week added the 4th session.

    Is there a reason to break up the bottles to 3oz? If she's still taking the same amount, I'm still in the same...

    Advice for building supply

    My daughter is 5 months old. To start out with, I had a massive oversupply, and she gained weight 2x as fast as "normal." Because of issues with reflux, we had to tone back her feedings, switching to...
  13. Re: Frustrated... need advice/encouragem

    She is on medication for the reflux, and seems to be doing much better than she was initially.

    ODD was home with me at first, but now that I've started working again, I can't have her home with me...
  14. Re: Frustrated... need advice/encouragem

    She has normal stools (1x every 6-7 days). Definitely not a foremilk/hindmilk imbalance - ODD had that, so I know what the stools look like in that situation.

    The grocery trip I mentioned I had...

    Hi - I'm new on here. I have an 8 week old daughter that I've been exclusively BFing since she was born, and a 17 month old daughter (not BFing). I'm having some difficulty with her, and I'm not sure...
