    Cooling Before Freezing--Or Not

    I hope this hasn't been asked a million times. I tried a few different searches and didn't find what I was looking for, so my apologies if I'm being search-dumb and repetitive. :)

    I know you're...

    Re: over feeding....

    In my experience with a large milk supply and an overactive letdown (with both babies), I think it's possible for babies to get a teeny bit too much milk and spit it back up, but that's not actually...

    Re: 14 month old nursing like a newborn

    My DD suddenly started nursing like a newborn around 13 months. I talked to my LC, and she told me it was very common at that age, with all the milestones and growing they are doing. She assured me...
  5. Re: when do you stop waking your newborn!?!?!

    With my first LO, I was so good about waking her and writing it all down for quite a few weeks. Then I came to a point where I decided that was ridiculous because I was tired and couldn't keep...
  6. Re: Nursing Strike or Self-Weaning??!

    If you think it's teeth, you could try pumping some BM and freezing it in an ice cube tray. You can then put a cube in a mesh feeder or a clean baby sock that's tied at the end and offer it to your...
  7. Re: I just want to stay sane during this growth spurt

    We hit the six week spurt (a few days early) last night, I think we were up every 15 minutes from 2 a.m. on. Ugh! The one thing that experience HAS taught you is that it's only a phase, one that...

    Re: I can't latch her right

    :hug, mama. Good for you for wanting to get this down for your baby!



    Is it possibly just a positioning issue? I ask because I thought my DS wasn't opening wide enough, but in actuality it was...
  9. Re: This isn't the Twilight Zone, it's the 4 month growth spurt?

    I remember it lasting a few days but seeming like forever. Hang in there! :hug

    Re: Growth spurt at 11 1/2 weeks????

    There's no hard and fast timeline for growth spurts. The 3 month thing is just a general reference, and the spurt can certainly happen a little before or after the official date. So, yes, it could be...

    Re: quick question

    I make a lot of milk, so both my LOs have only ever nursed on one side at a time, and I just alternate every single time. (Unless for some reason baby only nursed for a couple seconds. Then I will...
  12. Re: Another question - how do I know...

    PP gave good advice. As for the swallowing, you don't necessarily have to hear it. Watch the area of her jaw by her ear. It will wiggle and flex if she's actively nursing. And watch her chin and...

    Re: nursing often enough?

    As long as your baby is gaining weight fine, has good diaper output, and seems happy and healthy, I wouldn't worry about it. Those numbers are just guidelines, really, and some babies will eat...

    Re: Fussy at end of feeds

    As far as keeping the air moist, do you have access to a humidifier? Our house has very dry air from our heat, and we use humidifiers in all our bedrooms at night. I think you can also go into a...

    Re: Almost 9 months-Won't EAT!!!

    Sounds like my DD. She loved food at first and then lost interest. She's been in a picky toddler phase for what seems like forever, and it's still going on. She's not BFing anymore, so I just do my...

    Re: oversupply? baby choking

    This sounds like my DD. We had OS and OALD for many, many months. I'm learning that I just make a lot of milk, because I'm having some similar issues with DS, although he is a bigger baby than she...

    Senna Leaf Tea and BFing

    Anyone know if it's safe to drink Senna Leaf tea (a natural stool softener) while breastfeeding? Will it give baby diarrhea or something like that?

    Re: Nursing strike?

    I think pp is probably right that it might have to do with the recent illness. I know from experience how frustrating it is, how hard it is to want to feed your baby and not be able to. In my case,...

    Re: Yikes

    We didn't have our first bite until almost 13 months, probably because DD has been a "late" teether. She hasn't done it again since then, so I'm hoping she understood me the first time. :shrug Good...

    My first thought was teeth, just because my 1 yo is a total wreck right now for that reason. Are the stools mucousy, too, or just green? Sometimes you can see some diahrrea with teething, too. I'm...
