    Re: Is this normal weight gain?

    Well she does spend lots of time nursing so maybe that's it! She was small at birth (6lbs 5oz) too so maybe she's trying to catch up!

    Re: Cloth nursing pads

    I see lots of you are loving the LANA wool pads. I just got my first pair this week. I used them last night and leaked through them. I let them dry out and tried them again this afternoon and with...

    Is this normal weight gain?

    My daughter was 7lbs last Monday at the ped. appt. This week on Monday she was 7lbs 11oz on my scale at home. Is this normal weight gain for an almost 4 week old little girl?

    Re: How long?

    My twins are now 14 months old and they still spit up a few times a day each. Some days they are worse than others.

    Re: Air travel and feeding ?

    I sent you a private message yesterday. I made the trip from Korea to the US in December with my, at that time, almost 12 month old twins. Let me know if you have questions after you read the pm

    Re: Biting

    Every time I nursed him today he would bite me after nursing for a little bit. Each time I told him no and broke the latch. I just hope he catches on soon. He seems to think it is funny when he...

    Biting

    Yesterday one of my 8 month old twin boys decided to clamp down on my nipple really hard and pull his head back (taking my nipple with him). This really hurt. When he did it he made funny face,...

    Re: Weight gain slowing down

    It sounds like he's doing well. Just keep up the good work and see if you can cut out some of the distractions when it is time to nurse. I have the same problem with my boys. They'll fuss and I...

    Re: Discouraged About Supplementing

    I think you should follow your instincts. The suggestion of pumping one side while the baby is nursing on the other is a great idea. You can then supplement with breastmilk instead of formula (if...

    Re: Weight gain slowing down

    How are his diapers? Is there a good output? Is your DS becoming more active? Sometimes when babies start getting more active they will burn more, which causes the weight gain to slow down a bit. ...

    Re: How many ounces?

    In general, breastfed babies take an average of 1 oz per hour. Some take a little less, some a little more. I was told this by the pediatrician and a LLL Leader.
  13. Re: Can I expect to see this increase continue??

    I would think that it will continue to increase. Keep up the regular pumping. I've heard that eating oatmeal helps milk supply along with milkmaid tea. Some use fenugreek too.

    Re: Oversupply?

    Sometimes pumping takes some practice before you get good at it. Consider contacting an IBCLC for some suggestions. What type of pump are you using?

    That weight gain is great!!!!

    Re: Oversupply?

    You are probably dealing with OALD (overactive let-down). When a mother has an overactive let-down, milk is ejected forcefully from the breast and in great quantity. You might try letting your milk...

    I use the Medela Pump In Style Advanced. I would definately recommend it. It is a great pump. I get as much milk with this pump as I do with the Medela Lactina (Hospital grade pump). You can get...

    Re: Normal behavior?

    Yeah, they must just have so much energy that they can't even slow down to eat!
  20. Re: not taking bottle and not reverse cycling

    You might want to try other methods of feeding during the day other than a bottle. You could get your LO to sip out of a cup. Here is an article that might help you a little bit. ...
  21. Re: MOBI motherhood, question about supply

    I think I have read somewhere that it is only 1% that actually can't breastfeed. Ok I just found this site http://www.parentingweb.com/lounge/myths.htm it says 1-3%.
  22. Re: Perhaps why she hasnt gained that much weight?

    Keep putting her to your breast. The more she is sucking she will be telling your body to produce more. I would definately try to see or talk to a IBCLC about this issue. Supplementing may make...

    When my twins were in the NICU I was pumping for them. I was pumping every 3 hours around the clock. I was so dead tired. I don't think it is necessary to do that. For me it was pretty important...
