    Re: Thinking about supplementing....

    I know you are not the one who thought your darling child was a bother. I am talking about your mother who overfed your child so she would not bother her. I am really sorry I was not more clear.

  3. Re: Doctor Requesting That I Supplement

    Everything sounds great. I am a bit confused on how pumping after feeding means baby gets to the hindmilk-do you mean that you then give baby what you pump as a supplement?

    Anyway, of course it...
  4. Re: Starting again with baby number two

    I am so sorry this person hurt your confidence. Such a shame.

    I had my 2nd and 3rd babies at the same very large teaching hospital. Basically this means my "private" room often felt like grand...
  5. Re: Need help my 5 week old stopped nursing

    I totally agree with mommal. Please take heart, it is very early days. A baby who nursed great until 3 weeks is very likely to be able to nurse happily and well again. This is a bump in the road, not...

    How has weight gain been? Unless a baby is not gaining well, there is no reason to supplement with anything. And the first choice for supplementing would always be mom's own milk assuming it is...

    Re: OALD and oversupply

    How is baby gaining? Usually a baby who's mom has overproduction gains quite fast. Babies wake and nurse frequently because their biology compels them to, not because they are hungry (as in, not...
  9. Re: How much should my 8 month old baby be eating?

    :ita Neither your doctor nor everything else you have read is right. There is no absolute amount that a child "should" be eating at any particular age. No absolute ounces, no absolute calories, no...

    Re: low milk supply- 11 days old

    Well the good news is, baby is gaining! It might be a little on the slow side but not so bad.

    I hate to question your LC if you like this plan and feel it is helping. It just seems to me that...
  12. Re: Short feeding gassy baby. Getting desperate!!

    Uh this brings back a sad memory for me.

    Wow I am so sorry you are having such a hard time!

    I hope I can assure you that there is no reason to think you can no longer nurse your child. Even if you do not make "enough" right now- or even...
