    Re: Hates Cradle Hold

    Have you tried nursing him in a sling? or sitting up on your lap? Keep trying, as this could just be a phase! I remember going through something similar!

    The first thing that you need to do is get a diagnosis of PTSD...without that you really have nothing to be brought forward. PPD can also wreak havoc on supply, and so can pain (the headaches and...

  8. Re: I've been researching and I have a few questions..

    You could always use tupperware containers, or those ziplock containers. I skipped that all together with my second, and just give him what I have. He wanted what we had too, give her a spoon and a...

    They really are not getting dehydrated if they have enough wet diapers during the day. The urine may get concentrated, but that happens to most of us. We don't generally have clear urine first...

    Re: Baby's weight ok?

    It isn't about what you eat and breastmilk. It is the same as when you are pregnant. Your baby takes from you what it needs and leaves you with the rest. If you are not getting enough vitamins and...

  14. Re: How can I distract her while we're eating?

    I would continue to give her the EBM in a cup, give her an empty bowl and a spoon, maybe a little water if she would like. It is all up to you! Congrats on actually wanting to hold out on the big...

  17. Re: Cool Tip for Babies Only Taking 1 Breast

    Just a word of caution! If baby will not turn his head to one side it could mean some other issues! I would bring it up to the pediatrician at your next visit!

    Re: 15 month old only wants "milk milk"

    Hi Logans Mama,

    I would consider talking to his pedi about the gag reflex. If he has such a strong one, where he throws up like that, it could be why he is not eating. It has nothing to do with...

    Re: White nipple

    Is the nipple painful? How does the shape of it look after nursing or pumping? Is there white blister looking things or is the pink of the nipple just white in color?
