    Re: Nursing strike at 9.5 months

    I'm sorry to hear about...
  6. Re: just not making it :( last ditch request for any sugges

    You know, that's a great question. They never got huge, were always on the leaner side, although they did plump up more. I'd have to get copies of their growth charts to know the numbers. They're...
  7. Re: just not making it :( last ditch request for any sugges

    Well, he gained absolutely nothing from month 3 to 4, already being off the chart (below), despite nursing every hour to 90 minutes daytime, every 2 hours overnight, at 4 months. The ped recommended...
  8. Re: just not making it :( request for any suggestions

    We are co-sleeping; it's a rough go on nights when he wakes up enough to nurse only one side, then falls alseep for another 1.5 hours maybe, to wake up for the other side... I'm up every 1.5 hours,...

  11. Re: 4 mo Baby has fallen below 3rd %ile weight for length :-

    Well, he is below the 3%ile now, both weight for length and weight for age. I do not really know what else to try, I feed on demand, pump when I can, drink plenty, and take Dom as well. I think I...
  12. Re: 4 mo Baby has fallen below 3rd %ile weight for length :-

    Thanks for the input, ladies. I figured that the ped was off base, because his poos aren't green. Also, I wondered of the time between stools accounted for the consistency. So I guess he is just...
  13. Re: 4 mo Baby has fallen below 3rd %ile weight for length :-

    I should add, he is a happy, strong, appropriately developing baby otherwise.
  14. 4 mo Baby has fallen below 3rd %ile weight for length :-(

    My lg has been trending downwards since 2 mo of age. All the lc's I have spoken with said "as long as he has enough wets, he is fine". He passes BMs only every 12 - 14 days. Now he is 4 mo and only...
  15. Re: What should I expect? What is "normal"? Is there a "norm

    Re: how to fix a lazy suck????

    ALSO - every time he nurses or drinks expressed milk, he gets this crazy, red, bumpy rash all over his face. (So, the bottle rules out contact dermatitis) - could this also be causing his hesitance...
